Very convenient location near the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and other Old Town sites. Good dining choices nearby. All of the staff are courteous and very helpful Cons: No elevator; the stairs are steep.

I stayed at the Romantic Hotel during my trip to Istanbul. While there I became ill. The staff was extremely solicitous and helpful. Thank you Ayesha for the Tea and concern. The location is perfect for a solo visitor. The hotel is charming. I will definitely return to both Istanbul and the Romantic Hotel. RTMudrak

We booked a room last year for October 2014 with the nonrefundible prepaid rate but then I unfortunately had to cancel due to knee surgery.

Stayed here several years ago for a short stay while in transit. The location in the Old Town cannot be beat, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the included breakfast from rooftop terrace is more than sufficient. However, the rooms and such are showing some age and need some refreshing, especially the bathroom...thus the overal rating downgrade. I'm... More

Very nice hotel at a great location. Four blocks from the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sofia. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to many restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in the upper floor suite. Big enough, but everything was worn & not clean. Mold in the shower. Noise from chairs being moved in the breakfast room directly above.

First the positives. The Romantic Hotel has a great location just a few blocks from Sultanahmet Park, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia. Plus the view of the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara from the rooftop breakfast patio are excellent. However, these pluses did not do enough to offset the negatives for me to recommend this hotel.

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.
