We arrived 7AM very tiered on the day of our booking (2PM), but mr. Irfan gave us the room immediately and added an extra breakfast - both whit no extra cost. The hotel is clean with comfortable beds and very friendly service. It well placed within walking distance from many of the most important sights.

We were so happy to have picked the Empire Palace Best Western. The staff was very kind and accommodated us in every way. We loved the food especially too! Waiters gave wonderful suggestions and breakfast had a great variety of food. Very delicious! We were able to walk to many places to see and catch the tramline very close too.

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.
