I enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Its location is just perfect, 3 minutes from Blue mosque. I was very happy and impressed with help and advices I got on city from one outstanding receptionist. His name was Gökhan, he exceeded my expectations, was friendly and very professional. The only thing I would improve a little bit - noisy kids...

We have stayed here multiple times on trips to Istanbul and always enjoy the place. The location is perfect for all the great historical sites and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. Don't miss the rooftop bar/restaurant that serves a nice breakfast buffet. Also make sure you go up there in the evening where the waiter, Rambo (really!) will...

The good about this place was the location, it was a very very short walk to the Aya Sofa and Topkapi palace. The room was quite small and we were told that it was one of their larger rooms. The room was pretty to look at and offered a lovely view of the Aya Sofya but that was it. The...

It is just located at the corner of the street, so near to Higia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Room is a bit small but cozy and nice view. Breakfast is tasty. What's more, receptionist Gökhan is super friendly and helpful! Make my trip in Istanbul wonderful and memorable.

I stayed here on a solo sightseeing trip to Istanbul and loved this little hotel. The location is fantastic. You are a 1 minute walk to Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The Blue Mosque and the Sultahmet tram stop are about 3 minutes away. My view of the Bosphorus, over the Topkapi Palace walls, from room 307 was amazing. I...

We stayed here for two nights recently after arriving from NY,. The hotel is in a perfect location and the staff very very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts are excellent as well. Keep in mind the rooms (or at least ours) was kind of small, but considering the city location and the price this was not unexpected. Having said that,...

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It is in a perfect location; walking distance to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi Palace. Our room had a view of the Hagia Sophia.

This was my first trip to Istanbul and I loved the city! I stayed 8 nights in early October. The hotel has a wonderful location which is surprisingly quiet.

UPDATE SINCE 2007 REVIEW: The Valide Sultan Hotel is still our home in Istanbul, where we have traveled 30 times in the past 15 years, and have probably spent a cumulative total of at least nine months or more at the hotel. It is one of the "special class", or "charming" hotels, a converted Ottoman mansion. The location is fabulous,...

I found this hotel through Rick Steve's book and one off the things he intimated was that this place is a bit "tired". We didn't find that to be the case at all! Lovely interior, extremely clean and tidy, large windows that open either to the very close Hagia Sophia or the Bosphorus. The call to worship is very up...

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.
