A very nice, clean and well located hotel. The breakfast is spectacular with many varieties. All Sultanahmet monuments are nearby, within a walking distance. Staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. Room size is adequate but bathroom is a bit small. I strongly recommend it.

We've enjoyed our stay in this charming hotel for the 4th time. Everhything was excellent, as during our previous 3 stays. You need to check it out yourself: the atmosphere of the hotel, the location, wonderful breakfast, very, very comfortable beds, very helpful and nice hotel staff, who speaks very good English. It was a pleasant surprise, when the manager...

Katelya is a small, boutique hotel in Istanbul, located right by most of the tourist destination in Istanbul. It's a great place to start exploring Istanbul! The room was quite small, but was tastefully decorated. Breakfast selection was also limited, but we have no complaints. If we return back to Istanbul, we would come back to this hotel and I...

Very nice, large room. Friendly staff. Very close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. They also recommended a restaurant that came to the hotel to pick us up and brought us back. The hotel, Istanbul, overlooked the Blue Mosque. What a treat--and good food too. The only reason I didn't give this hotel 5 stars is because of the...

My first experience of Istanbul and Turkish culture was absolutely amazing, and Hamdi & staff are a big reason for that: they're extremely hospitable, and will go out of their way to accommodate you. We arrived with tonnes of luggage but they made our lives much easier. The breakfast had some of the freshest and tastiest foods I've tried here,...

I had the chance to stay here for a couple of days and they attended to every need. ncluding my request for gluten free bread. The hotel is within minutes from the Aya Sofia. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the breakfast is healthy. I would definitely recommended and will consider coming back again.

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.
