We had a wonderful stay at the Esans Hotel. They were able to arrange a private airport transfer. Their stay was incredibly friendly and accommodating to us on our short stay in Istanbul. I would definitely stay with them again and highly recommend this listing.

Spent a week here over Eid in order to see the city. The location of the hotel is excellent and there are plenty of shops and restaurants within a few minutes walk.

We liked this small special category Hotel because of its great location very close to important historical monuments like Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia and Sultan Ahmet (Blue) Mosque. The staff was very friendly, helpful and always available to answer any questions or provide recommendations. At Esans Hotel we really felt at home with our family.

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.
