Best location in Sultanahmet, next to Four Seasons Hotel - one block to Haghia Sophia and Blue Mosque. I have stayed here every year for 12-15 years. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are simple and very clean. It is always a good value.

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.

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.
