The sound proofing of the rooms was great since the Tram runs right in front of it and the noise isn't noticeable. The receptionist was nice and friendly and spoke...

The hotel is next to Hagia Sophia. My family and I checked in late in the evening. The staff was very accommodating and made our stay memorable. We have an early flight to Ephesus and the front desk made sure our taxi ride was ready for us. Thank you Boutique Saint Sophia.

Boutique saint Sofia is a very comfortable, well situated hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet next to Ayasophia. What made it exceptional for us was the service, specifically Kenan at the front desk.

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.
