If you don't want 5 star and the full glitz & glamour (& why would you want to in Istanbul) then look no further. Fabulous location, amazing breakfast, great dinner location on rooftop, very clean roomy rooms etc. etc. We stayed for 5 nights to meet up with our small group tour of Turkey & wanted for nothing more.

We found the staff very helpful, and most speak good english. The rooftop restaurant serves good food, with beautiful views uphill to the Blue Mosque, and...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. The location is in Old Town, just inside the old city walls. It has wonderful views of thewaterfront in one direction and the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia in the other, all of which you can see from a very pleasant rooftop Terrace restaurant/bar. Everything of interest in Old Town is...

The hotel was clean, the staff were very friendly, the roof-top restaurant overlooking the water was outstanding. Prices were very reasonable and in general it was a great value. Especially liked the old Ford Convertible sitting in front of the hotel. It brought back many memories. Hotel was within easy walking distance of the Blue Moque, Topkapi Palace and a...

The Armada Hotel is located in a unique area, actually a bit on the other side of the tracks from Sultanhamet and all the sights...about 10-15 minute interesting walk will bring you to the heart of the historical area. The immediate area of the hotel is very run down but not dangerous at all...lots of local charm with apartments,small food...

I felt I was really in Turkey and in a lovely, peaceful setting in the heart of old Istanbul. I was not in a generic hotel that could be anywhere. It is charming and unique with wonderful service.

The ambience of the hotel is very charming. It reminds you of the time of the Orient Express. The location is also great as you are very close to the Blue Mosque. The rooms are not large but are comfortable. The Turkish/Ottoman breakfast is truly outstanding. The hotel staff is also very friendly and helpful. I cannot think of a...

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.
