Great stay in Istanbul. Rooms and bathrooms large and exceptional service from staff. Remember to take a swimming cap as you will not be allowed to swim in the inside pool without your pink cap. Great Turkish bath, steam room and rooftop views of the River. Can certainly recommend this hotel.

This was one of 3 hotels he suggested. True, access to tram, metro and ferries is superb. However,...

Hotel was very chic and clean, great music in lobby. Staff was average, rooms were very nice with balcony although the door was a problem at times. Great location and awesome breakfast. I went with a friend from New Orleans and we recommend this hotel. Amazing view from roof top terrace. Beds were super comfortable.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a room upgrade, however the room was still tiny and the bathroom extremely cramped. Breakfast was average and although times stayec7am -10am everything was removed at exactly 10am. Upstairs bar area close and no where to sit of an evening.. Wouldn't go back.

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.
