Metropolis was our first stay in Turkey. Located approximately a 10 minute walk from Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia & other sites of Old Town. Very clean hostel. Staff were friendly. Basic breakfast included. Didn't realise how good we had it until we stayed at a cheaper hostel in Taksim. Definitely recommend!!

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.
