Last year my family has visited Istanbul and stayed at White House Hotel. We were very impressed and decided to stay at the same place during our second Istanbul visit. Although we have not arrived at Ataturk Airport, we have been offered one way free shuttle service from Esenler Bus Station. Thank you very much for that Harun Cadirci! This...

The White House Hotel in Istanbul is a gem in the heart of Sultanhamet. It is located just a few blocks from Aya Sophia and is just a block from streets full of wonderful restaurants. The rooms are very clean and well appointed, although not overly spacious. The best part of our three night stay at the White House Hotel...

I was in Istanbul for 12 days and spent my entire stay at White House Hotel. The location is excellent- walking distance to the top tourist attractions in Sultanahmet, and multiple good restaurants and cafes literally all around the hotel. And despite the central location, the street noise around the hotel is minimal. (If you wanted, you could even walk...

By far the best place to stay in Istanbul, centrally local to the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazar. The staff is friendly, and willing to stay up a chat with the jet-lag travelers until 2am.

Great location. We were on a oneday stopover from Asia to Brasil and managed to see the Hagia Sophia, Cisterns, Topkapi and Blue Mosque in a single day (tiresome, I know but we only had a day). All are walking distance form the hotel.

In my view a boutique hotel is small and luxurious, with exceptional service, food, furnishings etc. The White House is small and the service is truly exceptional. It is however not luxurious.

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.
