The hotel/hostel was clean and neat. The room was reasonably sized and served with free bottled water. Staff were very nice and helpful. We enjoyed our breakfast and had a nice conversation with the host. We specially enjoyed the spectacular panoramic view from the roof-top terrace of the building. The sea view was wonderful and the Blue Mosque and the...

We were so happy we chose to stay at Berk guest house. Tucked away on a quiet street in Sultanahmet opposite the Four Seasons the location was perfect. We could walk easily to all the major Istanbul attractions and we did. The roof terrace allowed for great views of both Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The room was comfortable...

Berk Guesthouse is in an ideal location for visiting the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace and the Sultan Ahmet Gardens on foot. Easy to find, directly behind the extremely more expensive "Four Seasons Hotel" This is a true guesthouse, where we were treated like old friends, breakfast in the quaint garden room or a coffee on the...

Have stayed at this guest house many times now. Hosts are extremely welcoming and helpful and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Environment is cosy, comfortable and brilliantly located. Amazing terrace views. Great breakfast, wonderful people. Will always be my first choice when travelling through Istanbul.

That was my first time in Istanbul and the choice of Berk Guest House didn`t frustrate me at all! Really good location! You can investigate all popular touristic places just walking. When I wanted to go somewhere further, the staff of the hotel helped me, gave me all directions, maps and every advice was very helpful to me. The room...

I stayed at the Berk Guest House for two nights with my partner and couldn't have been happier. - The location is perfect: centrally located and about as close to all the Sultanahmet sights (Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia/Topkapi Palace etc) as you can get - The staff are very friendly and helpful. They really went above and beyond, making sure we...

I've stayed with my mother and sister for 4 nights and we couldn't have asked for a better accommodation.

Berk Guesthouse was the absolute best all around! The staff was wonderful, the rooms were big and clean, the location was maximal. The hotel was walking distance (probably about 50 steps!) to the Sultanahmet area where the Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia/Topkapi Palace are located. The rooms were very clean with AC and WiFi. Jinet, the manager, was absolutely lovely and wonderful...

The Berk Guesthouse is a family-run B & B with renovated rooms, an elevator, and a roof top patio with a breath taking view of the old city. The location is ideal: equidistant form the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sophia and near the tram. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had a thoroughly enjoyable visit to Istambul.

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.
