Great position in the old city. Situated on a car free road allowing you to walk freely around the shops and restaurants. Close to the Blu Mosque and Sofia Maria Church and also the port, all walking distance. Staff were helpful, when a tour bus failed to pick us up on our last day the reception manager personally tracked them...

This hotel is a little old fashioned and basic but is clean and is fine for a short over night stay. The single rooms are very small and dark but have good showers, toilets and basic air conditioning. The staff are friendly and the location is ideal for walking to any of the main attractions. The breakfast buffet is also...

I have stayed here so many times. Friendly staff, fine aroma for sleep, nice breakfast. But there is not a private park place of hotel. Be aware of mafiatic parking parasites.

Metropol hotel is close to the riverside and is 1-2 kms from Aya Sofiya and Blue Mosque. The rooms are clean but very tiny, elementary and do not have any amenities for Tea/Coffee etc. The whole place has a old, worn out feel to it. Located in a congested narrow lane the view from the room is very bad, mostly...

Its really old and the rooms are dated. Our bathroom was pretty bad - the shower door was cracked and came off the rails easily. Breakfast is ok. The hotel manager was very helpful and very nice and the location is excellent. The hotel isn't too bad, its just I didn't think it was very good value for money. Shop...

This hotel is in a great location. It is close to the Tram, and major througfare. Major attractions are within walking distance. The breakfast that was provided was adequate, and staff was helpful. The rooms are rather tiny but clean. Biggest complaint was the construction of the tunnel nearby that went on all night and the rock hard mattresses. Would...

My wife and I stayed here after a hiking holiday. It is cosy and welcoming. The main attractions and bazzars are all within walking distance, we did 4 major attractions in one day! Breakfast is basic but OK - juices are dreadful and coffee is weak. Most staff are helpful but a few .. well not everyone loves their job.

Location to all major Istanbul attractions including: Grand Bazaar, Spice market, blue mosque, topaki palace, cistern & bosphorous, were all within walking distance. Plenty of places to eat. Rooms we had were all good size. We would...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“We were on the 1st floor on the front side of the hotel and had no issues with noise unless the window was open!”

“If going in the winter time. The hotel has continues heat running there is no way to control it.. So if it gets too warm turn on the A/C or open the window. I would choose quadruple room as it has separate room with a double bed.. Which gives you ample of space if traveling as family of 3.. Otherwise triple room there are 3 beds in one room which can get cramped with the three peoples luggage.”
