Good Hotel in easy location for the Blue Mosque and and surrounding area. 10 mins walk into the main hub. Sea View room was good... but try and get a full sea view room if you can as partial sneaks a peek into what could be a great view of an amazing sunrise... Hotel has great views on the roof...

I have been staying myself or had my guest stayed probably for the last 10 years. This weekend I was staying again with my Family again. I know Turkey has a lot of problems regarding tourism. The last thing you expect is not having a proper service. It seems, as if, Armada has thrown in the towel. In hard times...

Dear Levent Y, In fact, we haven't "thrown in the towel" yet! On the contrary, as you already pointed out, we have been doing our best to overcome and get out alive from this crisis while preserving our "magic touch"... Within such a critical period of time what most worries us would be losing our loyal, esteemed guests like you....

We selected a traditional hotel in the old part of town in order to immerse ourselves in Turkish culture. Relatively near the airport, delicious breakfast, walking distance to major attractions, excellent staff made this a perfect selection. Fascinating trip!

Very nice staff, convenient location within walking distance of two major tourist magnets! Clean rooms, breakfast little bit lower on options as it used to be when compares with stayings in the past, however still plentiful choices. View feom the terrace is just amazing!

We arranged this four day city break through our local travel agent, and she did us proud! We have visited Istanbul before, but it was as part of a cruise, and therefore a bit rushed. This time we thought we'd take a little longer and spend more time at the splendid historical sites. We had no idea where to stay...

This hotel is in the old town - very convenient for everywhere we wanted to go - eg walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Ayasofya... We could also walk to the Grand Bazaar but it was closed for the end of Ramadan when we were there (doh!) The views from the hotel were great. at breakfast we were...

This is a first rate hotel. We had a superior room overlooking the Marmara sea. The room was compact but pleasant and had everything the traveller would require. Free wifi which was good, kettle and tea/coffee, satellite TV, fridge and plenty of storage space. Our room had a tiny sofa that you could sit on and look at the sea....

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.
