Cafes, restaurants and shops are all around within 1 min, although the hotel is located in a quiet small street which makes it away from any possible...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 October 2016

Very accommodating. Treated us like royalty. From the minute we arrived and they took our bags to our room until we checked out they did everything to make us comfortable. Made special effort to provide gluten free breakfast items for my daughter. Very helpful in finding places we wanted to go. It was a great experience. Would definitely stay here...

The hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to many attractions. Close to mosques for those who need to pray. The breakfast area is very nice and good food served. There is a roof top terrace for sight seeing.

Nice hotel within walking distance of all major attractions. Staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The view from the roof terrace was great (especially at sunrise). The room was perfect, mine had a small french balcony.

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.
