This hotel is so nice. Super clean rooms. Interesting and helpful staff. Very close to all places you need to be. I can't list all names but I could recall Hager the sweet manger; and Sultan Suleman (hhhh) and the wonderful helpful man Arfan . Those guys will tell you how to save your money and where to go. Thanks...

The hotel is great, the staff here are very friendly and helpful. They gave us a lot of tips of travelling around in Istanbul. Plus a late check out for us, which is very helpful since our flight is at night. The facilities here are also good. Location is great too, all the attractions in old town are within walkable...

This was our first visit to the hotel and the staff immediately made a great impression and continued throughout the trip. Rooms were clean and cost, breakfast was perfect each day and the staff were abundantly hospitable in guiding, helping, serving and making our stay enjoyable. Definitely the place to stay in central Istanbul and walking distance to everything around...

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.
