This hotel was perfect for my wife and I while we stayed in the historic area of Istanbul. I never went to Istanbul before and after reading the reviews on tripadvisor, Hotel Sapphire seemed like the best place for the best price. It was right...More
Excellent central location in the middle of the old town (Sulthanamed) 10 min walk to the Grand Bazar. Very friendly staff, clean room. Excellent cost effectiveness. Next time we will book into Hotel Sappire again.
I booked a triple room with my two children of 8 and 6, and we were completely delighted. All the staff in the hotel were fantastic, really friendly and went above the call of duty to ensure we were happy and comfortable. A senior member...More
I chose this hotel for our family of four because it was good value and in the middle of the old city. To be honest we didn't expect all that much, but we were so pleasantly surprised. From the warm welcome to the newly-installed swimming...More

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.

Yes, the transfer fee to the hotel is free with 3 day + stay. You have to pay for transfer back to the airport. I did not reconfirm before arriving. I do not recall a city tax which may mean there was none or that it was not a large issue. Be sure to go to the restaurant right across the street and just to the right as you go out the door. It is run by a man and his 5/6 sons. I am sorry I cannot recall the name. Have a great time.
