Hotel staff are generally unfriendly and answer "no english" when you try to complain about anything. Rooms are dirty, unsafe, smelly and not like the photos in anyway. The shower smelled terribly when you used it and there was hair in the drain and on the bed sheets which also had holes in it. No help with my luggage on...

Worst place on earth. I booked 8 nights but was obliged to leave after my 2nd night. Dirty rooms, it smells like sewage inside. I got bed covers with pee on it. There are pee stains on the matresses No breakfast served No room cleaning (unless you request it) Staff members smoke in the reception hall

Staying here for one night on a flying visit to Istanbul was fine. Great location a short walk to the Blue Mosque and other attractions. The hotel staf were friendly and helpful and breakfast on the roof terrace was very good. Can only rate as average because of the tatty rooms; wires hanging from walls, funny smell in our daughter's...

Hard to find hotel is located pretty close to Sultanahmet and major sightseeing of Istanbul. Small street down the hill is full of similar style small hotels and AST group us just of of them. The best of the hotel is its staff and a nice terrace upstairs. As elevator hardly ever works you have to climb the stairs. However...

Location was just fine, very close to every point of interest in the Old city part, 5 minutes away from Blue mosque and Aya Sofia. Stuff was very nice and polite. Breakfast was fine as well. The hotel was in the middle of renovation works - they were changing our door one day, the next day they were doing something...

Small basic hotel in the Sultanahmet area, location is good, the place however is not quite what it shows on booking.com. Room is small but ok, except for the window that cannot be closed fully and seems not very well sealed, therefore can be noisy. Rooftop bar is rather just a rooftop terrase where they serve (basic) breakfast, no cover...

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.
