It was really great week in this hotel. The staff were really so friendly and helpfull. They cleaned our room every morning, and the breakfast was also so tasty. And the place of the hotel is just in the middle of Sultanahmed. You can walk to any historical place. I would love to have another week in here.Thanks alot.

We've stayed there 10 days to visit almost all the ancient history around the area. I have to admit that the hotel has a great location! It is right in the middle of the Sultanahmet Square and Beyazit area which is very close (5 min. walking distance) to Grand Covered Bazaar, Blue Mosque, St.Sophia, Museums etc. I can say we...

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.
