I only stayed there for one night but I enjoyed the service. The hotel's location is perfect: near to all attractions (in the heart of the old medina) and easily accessible and at the same time in a very calm and hidden corner far enough from the noisy places. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was so...

This hotel is close to almost all attractions. Everything is within walking distance. The staff is good and helpful. One thing that I didn't like about this hotel is the restaurant. It is small and a bit crowded.

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.
