Book this hotel for its location... its situated behind the blue mosque and the Hagia Sophia and a few mins walk away from Bospherous... plus only 15mins walk away from the Grand Bazar. Because its an inner city hotel its a bit cramped for space... the rooms dont have much storage and need to live out of your suitcase and...

A friend booked this hotel for us. I was initially disappointed as this is a very basic, small, tourist hotel. Not exactly what I would pick for my vacation but we were only staying 4 nights. However, in the end I am quite pleased. The rates are great. Standard rack rate was 75 Euro for single and 90 Euro for...

The hotel is quite affortable, especially when booking online. But you do get what you pay for - the rooms are incredibly small and uncomfortable. I have been in hostels with larger single rooms. Here I could not even properly open my suitcase as there wasn't any floor space to do it. There also isn't any place to put your...

The hôtel is located in the very heart of the old city of Istanbul, 2 minutes away from saint Sophia and the blue mosquee. To visit the whole city, many transports are available close from the hôtel. Staff is very friendly and helpful! Bedrooms are a bit small, but for a 4 night stay, it is comfortable. To be recommended....

The staff were great here. The room was very clean and there was a cleaning service everyday. The room was absolutely tiny though. There was no room to move around as the literally took up the entire room. Half the door to the bathroom was blocked due to a bedside table. Also, the doors may as well as been made...

A Turkish friend helped me find this hotel. We were traveling with 3 small children, the hotel was great. It was close to all of the tourist spots, but not on the main street so it was quiet enough. Breakfast was good and plentiful. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. Our room was clean and cleaned daily quite well....

The hotel indeed has a very good location - close to tourist destinations. And this is the only positive point. Incredibly small rooms like cells, bathrooms are the same size as toilets in aircrafts! Never met such rooms before in any other country. A double- room prepared for us (a couple) was on the 3rd floor, too tiny & tired...

My husband and I stayed for two days here. Excellent location with all the best attractions in close proximity. The room was small and had no window but this was overly compensated by their excellent service. Under €50 for a double room,we really didnt have anything to complain about.

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.
