This was the first time I have stayed for the second time, and for a good reason! A charming, perfectly located hotel in the best of Istanbul season AND FOR A VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE. Hasan the receptionist, Ilias the waiter/handyman and gentle Leo-the-boss. Generous breakfasts, rose-bushes decorated Bosphorus-view terrace relaxation, free hammam for over-the-three-night-stayers, Artefes is definitely not to be...

During 4 nights they didn't change bed linens (there was a stain on the cushion). I kept leaving tips for them but even this didn't...

We booked economy room and it was better than we expected. Small clean room with everything you need: double bed, kettle, safe, minibar. Towels were changed daily. Breakfast was ok. But make sure to come early otherwise you can miss something. Nice view from the terrace.

We spent five days in Istanbul, it was very good. The hotel is in the center, the staff is kind, the breakfast was delicious, everything is ok. We tried the sauna, it was warm and clean. From the roof the panorama is nice.

Artefes hotel has excellent location and that's therl reason we picked it. ,All services such as room service, front desk, breakfast, taxi, etc were great. They can even arrange a shuttle to the airport. Rooms were small but that's pretty common in Europe. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that when I booked a room I was...

Small but clean rooms with average breakfast. They have special offer on their web site (10% discount when paid with cash, if book more then three nights you got free Turkish bath or airport shuttle), but in reality this is not true, you get nothing of this. On way home almost miss the flight because on reception forget to book...

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.
