Our second stay at this hotel. Clean, comfortable and quiet with friendly efficient staff. Rooftop terrace bar with fantastic views - also a restaurant which we did not use. All major Sultanahmet tourist sites within easy walking distance. The bedrooms are comfortable but not large...More
The rooms are small and relatively spartan but clean and air-conditioned. The hotel is on a quiet street in the Sultanahmet district so it's in walking distance of the Blue Mosque, the Agia Sophia and many of other sites. The breakfast buffet was quite good...More

The Celal Sultan Hotel, Istanbul, is a GEM within this busy city. A lovely, central, hotel which provides everything required by the tourist or traveller. Good food in the wonderful terraced restuarant overlooking Agios Sophia, and courteous friendly staff. This is a well run clean...More
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Perfectly safe. In fact I'd say all of the areas making up the Old City are perfectly safe. Personally I walked from Sultanahmet to the Fathi Mosque, Chora Church and almost everywhere else I went during my recent stay, as well as walking the entire Theodosian Wall, making sure always to keep to the back streets and alleys.
I traversed a lot of poor and run down areas and a number of areas with a high refugee population, I always walked alone and I never felt in the slightest danger. In fact I felt far more safe than in many areas in large European cities, let alone the many areas in US cities where I would never dare set foot. The worst thing that befell me was that I sometimes accepted too many glasses of tea and at times had trouble finding a convenient toilet. Hard to blame that on anyone but myself though.
Don't make the mistake of thinking that the snippets of awfulness you see on the news constitutes the full reality on the ground. If that was the case you couldn't exit the front door ever unless living in a remote wilderness.
Hi. Yes you can take Metro from airport to Sultan Celal station. You can search complete route on google. Taxi is much expensive compared to Metro. Once in Istanbul buy metro pass which can be used throughout your stay and... More
