In all my travels, the two most beautiful hotels I've stayed in is one in Marrakech and the Kybele in Istanbul. The location is perfect, being in the old part of the city and easy walking distance to the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, etc. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is fantastic, and decor is just amazing.

I have stayed at the Kybele, oh, 6-7 times. In Istanbul, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The decor is magical, the location is central, and the staff is superb. Vefa and his crew have become friends...always welcoming me back. Sometimes I "forget" to see the sights. It's just so much fun to hang around the hotel!

The Kybele is the best place to stay in Istanbul. Their staff is great-they go beyond expectation to ensure the Kybele's guests are taken care of. They are knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I cannot say enough about them.

Small, comfortable hotel with excellent service. Not a standardized, impersonal place. Creative, colorful lobby and rooms, especially notable for the many beautiful hanging lamps throughout the hotel. Good breakfast provided, with hotel restaurant for other meals. Has wi-fi. Very near Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque area. Very welcoming, comfortable and pleasant hotel.

My husband found this pretty hotel on the website. I liked it right away and it became much more when you actually see and feel it. Whole hotel is just pretty and made my trip started!! Thank you for the owner and staff who were very supportive and helpful. ウェブで見て一目惚れでしたが、実際に泊まると部屋だけでなくホテル全体に包み込まれ、恋に落ちますよ❤︎

For the price, this little hotel is a gem. Rooms are on the smaller side, but very clean and well appointed with the unique hanging lanterns in every hotel room. Breakfast is included and very good. The management goes out of their way to please in every way they can. The location cannot be beat. Literally 1 block from the...

This hotel is a delight. Right in the centre of Istanbul, around the corner of major attractions such as The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, its idiosyncratic decor immediately transports the visitor to a different world. Our rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean with toiletries and well-stocked minibars. The staff were welcoming, pleasant and very helpful. I would certainly return.

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.
