We stayed at the Blue House at either end of our trip, four nights in all. Loved it. Room clean and comfortable, everything worked. Delightful, helpful staff who spoke good English - why should they ? When we returned for the second stay, we were greeted like old friends. Perfect location and what might just be the best view in... More

I didn't stay here but I ate the restaurant on the rooftop terrace. The view is simply spectacular! The front staff and the wait staff were all pleasant and accommodating. The food was superb and the view - unbeatable! You can see the Sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque, and even the small bazaar across the street.

We went on the look out for a meal with a view of Istanbul and this one is hard to beat, however the food left a lot to be desired. Every meal we have had in this city has been top notch but here we were disappointed. This is a great location being wasted.

A beautiful small personal hotel within 300 yards of the Blue Mosque. Arrived on last few days of Ramadan so an easy walk to fountains and park are between Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Do need ear plugs for quieting the call to prayer. Breakfast was great and roof restaurant can not be beat.

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.
