I found this hotel on a beautiful street in Sultanahamet. I walked in and the lady at the front desk 'Ashley?' was very helpful. I told her that I was traveling on a budget and she offered me one of their semi basement rooms. She also sat with me for 1/2 hour and helped me to plan my visits in...

We booked a room in the Star Hostel on Internet and stayed there for my first night in Istanbul. The night clerk demanded to know as I checked in how long EXACTLY I would be staying; my reply of 5 to 6 days was not acceptable to them. My room was tiny, overlooking a backyard with trash on the floor......

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.
