I agree with the recent reviews posted, the hotel offers an extremely helpful and friendly service and is well situated for all the sites.

Great location and superb staff - special thanks to Mr Yasar Özpay at the front desk for his service with a smile. The view from the hotel's roof terrace is simply incredible. Our room wasn't huge but spotless: the hotel was surprisingly quiet given its very central location at a 10-minute walk from the Aya Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the...

I had been there for a business trip a month ago (Oct, 2009). First off, I can tell that the atmosphere that the hotel provides to its guests is priceless. You feel like you are in Istanbul. The history of this city makes it mysterious and Istanbul is a place where you can basically look at a scene and hear...

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.
