Not expensive and well situated, with seaview (but not a breathtaking seaview), this hotel is reasonably comfortable, but you should not expect luxury. Friendly but totally inefficient staff. Very noisy with the big road in from of the hotel. If you are sensitive to noise and have difficulty to sleep with big trucks passing by regularly, avoid this hotel.

I love this hotel because of its location. It is a walking distance to many of the Istanbul attraction. Their buffet breakfast every morning was the highlight of my day. My room had a great view because I paid for it but trust me, it's worth it. Super friendly employee who they all speak English.

The Kalyon is beautifully situated right along the water and has beautiful views of the Sea of Maramara (across from Kennedy Avenue, that is!). It is a peaceful and quiet place and has a nice back gate that allows you to easily get up to the cobblestone streets that snake up into Sultanahmet. It is a hike if you are...

You are in sultanahmet but you are away from the hustle and the bustle. You are just a 10 minutes walk away from all the amazing restaurants coffee shops and souvenirs and yet you have a nice view of the Marmara from the window. The hotel seems like a small establishment but protocols are established, practiced and maintained like a...

Hotel closed to the sea, not so far to Yenakapi Ferry boat pier. Closed to blue Mosquee, and oldest places. Everything by walk. Room space is good, welcome is nice, and manu taxis closed to the hotel. In synthesis I recommand. I waked up too early to taste breakfast but you can ask something to bring.

Friendly staff, great breakfast, nice location walking distance from Hagia Sophia and good restaurants. Hotel is right on the water with great views. Only downside is that beds are really firm. I stayed here for work travel but would come back again on vacation.

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.
