Owner Irina was a most extraordinarily kind, caring and giving host, helpful in the typical ways, but going several steps beyond, to make sure the traveler has the best experience and is well-cared for. LOVED the interior--all the rooms are beautifully unique with amazing carved wood and museum-quality artifacts, Clean, comfortable rooms. Fine breakfast. Loved the exterior, the gentle tortoise...

Unlike most hotels that look the same, this one has a real charm. The rooms are very spacious, and the location in close to the old city monuments, but in a place you can also get a feel of the local life. The downside is the shower - plumbing is old and it takes forever for the water to get...

This old and well kept house gives a great character to your stay. Rooms are pretty big and clean. Breakfast is good and abundant. The owner is always kind and ready to give you good suggestions to make your stay in Istanbul more pleasant. They provide fresh towels everyday. Location is great, literally a 5 min walk from Haya Sofia...

We were astonished by the beauty of this old Turkish stylish mansion... it was a trip back in time but with the comfort of today... it was like being at home away from home... the owners are extremely kind and ready to serve you at any time, although we were almost the only ones in the hotel...

We stayed at the Turkuaz for 5 nights over New Year's Eve. Pros was the excllent and helpful live-in staff and the location which is close to local foodie places including an excellent local pizza place and lokantasi. Cons are the building is falling apart. Although the sheets and towels were clean and the staff try to keep the building...

The charm of this place reside in two things: the building and the management. The building is a pearl and it seems like sleeping in the rooms of the sultan's castle. They are very heavily decorated, but charming. The management is very helpful, charming and welcoming. They helped us in anything we needed. Be aware though that the bed in...

This old Ottoman house has become a delightful bed and breakfast in the Kumcapi area of the Golden Horn, within walking distance of all the major antiquities of Istanbul. The décor is definitely old world, with wonderful Venetian glass chandeliers, painted wood ceilings and ornate furniture. It is easy to see an opulence that existed 100 years ago. This was...

I also went through many hotel listings looking for a nice play to stay within a certain price range in the Sultanahmet part of town. I read some great reviews of this hotel and found it referenced in some guidebooks on the area as well. I was a bit surprised by what was actually offered. It was an excellent area...

I went through many, many hotel listings in Istanbul looking for somewhere both affordable (under 100Euro) and with character. This hotel has many great reviews, so I was confident all would be fine.

My brother and I stayed here at the start and end of our trip around Turkey. Maria and her family gave us the friendliest and best service of anywhere we stayed and even looked after some of our luggage for over two weeks in between our time in Istanbul. It is a perfect location near the Little Aya Sophia and...

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.
