I would highly recommend the Ares Hotel in central Istanbul! Ahmet and the rest of the staff are very friendly and helped me get settled quickly. Great service and free wifi. Within 1 minute walking distance to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sopia. The terrace has fantastic views of the Hagia Sopia, topkapi palace, and basilica sistern.

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.
