My family and I were there for 5 days (late May). Initially, our first sight of the exterior of the apartment reserved for us was disheartening but when we got in - it was like stepping into a different world. Every room in the apartment was clean and maintained as such throughout our stay. The staff was friendly, reliable and...

A family reservation was made at the last minute and we received prompt collection from Management of Ekim Apartments. We were collected by taxi and escorted directly through the historic area to find ourselves in beautifully maintained and well equipped apartments that were peacefully quiet inside. The bustling shopping and commercial areas are within a reasonable walking distance. You will...

We stayed for a week in April in the Marmara apartment on the top floor, with the balcony and view of the sea of Marmara. The location is perfect, with just a short walk to the Blue Mosque and all the standard attractions. It's a mixed neighbourhood with restored buldings cheek by jowl with decrepit wrecks of buildings. As others...

We spent 4 nights at the "Basileus Apartment" which is in the cellar of the Ekim apartment building. The place was roomy enough for our family of four (Two adult children) as the inside room had two bunk beds.

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.
