Staff great and the rooms good. No problems at all with this hotel but this is a tourist hotel and - I suspect very unusually - I was staying for business. That wasn't a problem except that everyone else seemed to be on weekend time and I wasn't! Next time I'll stay as a tourist...

The hotel location was excellent. Staff were very helpful, especially Ms Ercan at reception who was fantastic. The city attractions are within a few minutes walking distance of hotel, don't waste money on a tour guide. Would recommend using the tram to visit the beautiful Dolambache castle ( Kabatas stop ) and then experience the nightlife at Taksim (a short...

I spent a Weekend there with my family. The hotel is actually good located, nothing to say about that, but not so easy to find for all the taxi drivers we took during the weekend.

An excellent hotel (although tea-making facilities in the rooms would have been appreciated!). Staff were very switched-on and helpful. Even the proprietor bought us a drink! Very clean, quite plush and very comfortable, with small indoor pool and sauna. Walking distance to many of the attractions.

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.
