My experience with this hotel is that the hotel staffs are extremely rude. We always avoid asking them even for a simple thing as very unhelpful and very stressful to talk to them. The room is very small, Air condition was not working and the bed is old and uncomfortable. No privacy as housekeeping enters room without knocking the door...

We enjoyed our stay here. After a mixup with the booking. Initially the room was book via booking.com but was cancelled by the hotel 2 weeks prior to our visit. After contacting the hotel direct, they gave me a better room rate offer with a sea view. Breakfast was good. And the roof top deck is a pleasant place to...

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.
