Spent two nights at the hotel. Can't beat the location. Literally across the road from Hagia Sophia. Easy walk to Sultanahmet attractions: Basillica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Topkapi, restaurants, tram, Big Red Bus, etc. Good breakfast buffet included. Friendly service. Clean. Good beds. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for two nights in room 203. We found the staff friendly and welcoming and the room clean and comfortable though rather small. The window overlooks a narrow laneway and has limited views. The shower is located over the deep spa bath which is difficult to get into and out of as there are no grab-rails. The hallway is...

The location, being close to all historic and cultural sites is excellent. Staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Good breakfast and good overall value. Particular thanks to Erhan Handan for his help with our luggage. Taxi drivers need good local knowledge to get to the front door

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.
