What a great hotel! Two nights; right in old-town. walking distance to Hagai Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, train station. Breakfast included at Best Western 50 feet away. Free wi-fi. Super friendly staff. Great restaurants all around. Inexpensive (US$10 dinner).

This hotel is perfectly situated between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophfia and just 8 min walk from the Topkapi entrance. There are at least 20 good places to eat within 2 mins walk as well as bars and small food stores. The hotel is small but looks good both inside and out and unlike some in the area...

The staff is without exception extremely friendly and goes out of their way to help. Location is unbeatable right next to the market and 5-10 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The breakfast was very nice and I enjoyed the quick stroll (about 1 minute) across the street to the rooftop restaurant with a view of istanbul....

My husband and I had booked three nights in the Hyppodrome hotel and when we got there they told us that we would be staying in the appartment section of their hotel. The room was very nice, clean, good size and with a decent-sized bathroom. The staff were really friendly and helpful and seemed delighted to see us every time...

Just a compliment to your staffs for their help and brilliant service during our stay in Istanbul especially for Arzu who helped us a lot in finding the right room for us. Superb service and the view from the top floor of the apart room, fantastic. So is the view from the breakfast terrace. Thanks.

My first week in SultanAhmet for our 3 months holidays in Istanbul. It was about midnight when we finally found the hotel. My husband wasn't happy with the room cause the bed is such as the sofa bed.

Based on information from Rick Steves' Istanbul, my girlfriend and I booked a double room (two twin beds) in high season for 80 Euros a night, cash, for 9 nights.

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.
