Good location, near the historical center; a fine room and a good breakfast; warm and helpful staff; and a silent place at night (except for the proximity of a mosque, but of course that's not their fault). I recomend the place, without hesitation. The most important atractions of Istambul are easily accessible by foot or by tram.

Everything is just a stone throw from this place. Clean is the key factor. The only negative side is that the steep road to the hotel. The airport transfer also very cheap and the driver is polite. Great choice for budget travellers

Located very near the most famous sites of Istanbul, this hotel was very comfortable for our week long stay. Bathroom was roomy and clean, provided a hair dryer and basic toiletries. The staff was very friendly and helped with our taxi to and from the airport. The surrounding area has convenient shops, a fruit stand and tons of restaurant options.

I stayed two nights in this hotel. The reception desk was very nice and welcoming. The room I reserved (budget room in basement, no windows, which wasn't specified when I booked on hotels.com) had trouble with hot running water so they gave me a free upgrade for the first night and told me the hot water issue will be resolved...

Pros: Great, spacious room, good wi-fi, clean Cons: Shabby locality, staff could be more friendly The room was great, WiFi was good. Everything inside the hotel was clean.

The hotel is near the train station, taxi stand and a short walk away from the tram station. It is also very close to some good, traveller's pocket friendly restaurants and provision stores.

Clean, and centrally located. Fresh towels and cleaning service every day, good breakfast. Helpful staff. They also arranged private transfer for a reasonable price plus gave us a better room compared to what we have originally booked and paid for.

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.
