We stayed for over 1 week at Hotel Grand Peninsula and it made our Istanbul-Sultanahmet experience that much better. The staff were all exceptionally warm and friendly. Breakfast is an absolute highlight - so much variety, and it may be the best we've seen. Highly recommended and thank you for everybody....

The Grand Peninsula was a delightful discovery. It's very clean; showers, etc. function well; the staff was very helpful; the roof terrace was a nice to haver breakfast in the morning and before dinner drinks in the afternoon (although the view of the Sea of Marmara is not completely unobstructed). Worthy of special mention are, first, the very nice lady...

I do not believe the adverse review of the 14 May fairly reflects what is offered by the Grand Peninsula Hotel. Rooms vary and so does the price. If you want a view particularly in addition to accommodation then obviously those rooms are more expensive. I stay at the hotel about 4 times a year and have done so for...

Our lasting memory from the hotel is by far the front desk guy Ramazan. He was incredibly nice, recommended some great places to eat, made sure we saw everything in town, and got us discounts for a boat tour. He was excited to tell us about Istanbul, the history, and even told us about his home town of Mardin, I...

I was in Istanbul to attend an international conference held in an international hotel.

It was a brilliant decision. Grand Peninsula is clean, very friendly, tasty fresh...

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.
