    Very good compromise between price, quality and location. I booked a double room with private bathroom... clean, with conditioned air, secure and quite. The staff in the reception or for the breakfast (included in the reservation) is very open and friendly. I recommend the place.

    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

    A combination of the tram(above ground) and subway (below ground). You can buy tickets at the station once you get there. You will get off at the Sultanahmet stop and walk to Sultan from there. Hope that helps!
