We spent a long time researching where to stay in Sultanahmet and this place came up trumps. From the moment you arrive there is consideration and a sense of calm expertise - coffee/tea and a really informative lowdown on Istanbul. We just got the sense the staff - special mention to Hasan and Ulas - take real pride in their... More

The service is excellent and so is the location. Rooms are a little tired. The toilet flushing mechanism was broken and the hotel tub cover kept falling off to expose the plumbing, but it wasn't that big of a deal. Hasan was so helpful and great breakfast included.

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.
