I stayed at the White House for two nights in August. The location in Sultanahmet is walking distance from many of the historical sites and the tram. Rooms are clean and the staff very attentive and courteous. Breakfast spread provided a good selection of tasteful local offerings and a view of Haghia Sophia. Complimentary Turkish delight is a nice touch.

We stayed at the White House in late July and had a terrific time there. We wanted to stay in the Old Town area near the historic sites and this location couldn't be more convenient. The rooms were very comfortable and a good size. The staff was very helpful and accommodating and we particularly enjoyed having a coffee or glass...

My adult daughter and I chose the White House Hotel for its location and reviews (and the prospect of the rooftop breakfast overlooking the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque). Hotel more than lived up to its reviews. Perfect location for Sultanahmet sites. We chose to walk everywhere including areas across Galata bridge (about 2 1/2 miles each way to Istanbul...

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.
