After spending two hours reading trip advisor reviews on hotels in Istanbul I chose this one. Organising a trip to please all four girlfriends between 60 - 70 years, was not easy as everybody has their own idea of the perfect hotel. We were not disappointed! We loved everything about it - its character, quiet location (only 5 min. walk...

I have to admit that initially when I was " coerced" into downgrading my hotel booking from the Marmara Istanbul to the Celal Sultan, I was very upset. However, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise......the location of the hotel was absolutely fabulous...located in the heart of the sultanahmet district, this little hotel is literally a few minutes (...

A very nice hotel, well cared-for, with conscientious staff providing excellent service. Our room (a Superior twin) was smart, clean and comfortable, and the public areas in traditional style were attractive and welcoming. The location is ideal for exploring the Old Town's sights on foot, and close to two tram stops for reaching other areas and crossing the Golden Horn.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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.
