This is a basic hotel, with good sized rooms, adequate ensuite, a good breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. It's location is perfect. It's right on the tram line and is within walking distance of Sultanamet, AYA Sofia, and other attractions. There are good eateries nearby, and it's easy to buy tickets for public transport at the tourist office... More

Location was amazing. Walking distance to all the sights in the old town. Staff were very friendly as well. Rooms were clean and shower size was great which is a huge bonus. Air conditioning kept the room very comfy

A non-fancy, but adequate hotel. Most of the top sights quickly reached on foot, plus the tram line outside the hotel door takes you to the Dolmabahce Palace. And there's a metro station 2 blocks away. Check your allocated room - we swapped for a roomier one facing the busy Sircesi, which was quiet at night (double-glazing) and bustling with... More

Excelent location in you of the main street of the old town, near the galata bridge, Ayasofia, Blue Mosquet, Yemi Cani, etc...The view from the terrace is great also for a good breakfast. Try not to get the room in the last floor...because of the elevator.

We spent 5 days here and had amazing time. Staff is very courteous and helpful. All the major attractions are nearby. Room was very quiet to ensure good sleep. Breakfast had huge variety with breathtaking view. The woman on the counter guided us very well about public transport. We would definitely stay there next time.

The Hotel is located very close to the most touristic places and this is a good start. There is no need to use public means because restaurants and pubs are just there. The breakfast it's huge and vary, the sight of the terrace it's great. Regarding the accomodation the rooms are cheap and the restroom it's claustrofobic. If you have... More

Booked for three nights for six. I already knew the location so was no mystery to me concerning location. Rooms were comfortable and were equipped for function and not luxury. Exactly as the cost would suggest. Rooms were spotless and cleaned very well every day. Breakfast was a running buffet which was more than adequate and had enough choice available... More

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.
