Just got back from Istanbul. My husband and I stayed at the boutique st Sophia hotel. The room was a little bit small but very comfy and neat. The hotel location is near to all the historical places in Sultanahmet area. All the staff were very kind and helpful. Will definitely stay there again.

Stopped here one night whilst in transit, I would like to return & stay longer. The hotel was close to many key tourist sites. It was surrounded by lovely restaurants & interesting shops & an easy walk to river. The staff were outstandingly welcoming & helpful. Our room was very nice & immaculately clean.

The hotel is very good overall in terms of location (minutes away on foot from most historical attractions in Sultanahmet), cleanliness and staff. The only draw back is the small size of standard rooms, but this is expected given the fact that the hotel is a restored historical building.

Stayed here in June this year. Nothing compares to sleeping literally right next door to Hagia Sofia to be woken by the muezzins call to prayer... Open the window and see the minarets... Deeply touching... Turkish ice cream vendors downstairs... Aside from everything else this is a stunning boutique hotel with 5 star offering at very reasonable price

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.
