I have visited Turkey three times so far. The room was spotless and comfortable. All staff members were helpful and accommodating to my needs...

I stayed here for three nights in October 2016. I usually prefer to rent an apartment but I got a reasonable deal for this short stay and decided to try it out. The hotel is in a great location in Gulhane, three minutes from the tram stop and in easy walking distance of the Blue Mosque in one direction and...

We are family of 6 persons we booked two triple rooms but we were shocked that they are normal rooms with extra bed there was no space to move or to do any thing. The furnitures are very old but clean and the stuff are very friendly and helpful. I booked a third room so our stay now is more...

I just returned from my third trip to Istambul for the past three years and I already feel like going back! I fell in love with this city from my first visit which was roughly 20 years ago and wanted to return ever since. But in order to have an extraordinary vacation every time, you need to also have a...

It's a small, but very cosy hotel in the centre of Istanbul (next to Turkish bazar). The staff are amazing. They tried to do their best for us to feel like home (even better))) The beds are very convenient. The food for breakfast is tasty (and coffee is marvelous). There is a small swimming-pool with jacuzzi and sauna downstairs. There...

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.
