Hotel was very chic and clean, great music in lobby. Staff was average, rooms were very nice with balcony although the door was a problem at times. Great location and awesome breakfast. I went with a friend from New Orleans and we recommend this hotel. Amazing view from roof top terrace. Beds were super comfortable.

The hotel is well situated, however rooms really small and the bathroom cramped. Average breakfast - not much variety. Rooms even though small are neat and cleaned every day. The wifi is excellent. View from our room was a dilapidated building.

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.
