Location is just 1 or 2 minutes from Çemberlitaš station also you can get to Sultan Ahmet by walk about 5 minutes. Room and bath is also clean. Price is also too cheap I think. The best thing at the hotel is Super Kind Staffs. Their english is good. It was my perfect holiday.

The hotel has a good location. It's 5 min walking from the most important sightseeing in Istanbul (Sultanahmet - Blue Mosque). The staff helped us calling the shuttle to go to the airport. However, the breakfast is basic, kind of poor for a 3 star hotel, it doesn't have a selection of teas (not even 2, which is weird considering...

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.
