The location is fine to visit the old city. The SPA with Hammam is little but nice: quite surprisingly, it is open ony from 10am to 6pm, which makes it unavailable at the times when you most would like to (i.e. before going out and after coming back from visiting the town.

I stayed at the hotel for three nights after checking out from another Best Western hotel which was of a very poor standard.

We arrived by taxi from the airport so there was no problem finding it. The lobby & breakfast area was decorated in fine Ottoman style, which gave it a nice atmosphere, as you are located in the Old Town right in with local residents. If you have a room at the front of the building it will face a community...

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.
