The hotel was clean,staff was very helpful and family oriented. The location is amazing. It is close to all of the historical places to see within walking distance. On the 5th floor there is the breakfast area and there is a balcony to see the sunrise or see the sunset. It was a beautiful view.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 9 nights during the middle of July. We were picked up at the airport for an extra charge, but the price is pretty much the same as a taxi, so I will recommend it. The reason being that it's pretty common to be tricked or scammed by the taxi drivers, (something we also...

It is located in a most convenient place with all attractions are almost 5 min walk away. Bazaars are about 10-15 min away and food shopping and travel around Istanbul is very easy too tram station is just at the top of the road from the hotel. Rooms were spacious and staff were very welcoming and helpful

Good location just in the middle of sultanahmet. There are all kind off shops and restaurants. Besides you are a few steps from everything you have to see in Istanbul. The hotel is also wheelchair accesible. Have a good breakfast.

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.
