We stayed at Azade Hotel for seven nights and were completely satisfied with our room, the wonderful and attentive staff, and the generous breakfast in the rooftop restaurant. The staff was friendly, courteous, and always helpful. Our room was clean, quiet, and the air-conditioning worked well. The view from the rooftop restaurant is of the Blue Mosque and the shipping...

I stayed here with my parents back in September, and am just now getting to a review. We had a great stay here, mostly due to the staff that worked at the hotel. My dad loved the gentlemen that worked the front, and they are always so helpful and accommodating to us. We stayed in a room with a double...

Reviewed 19 May 2016

We stayed here for four nights. Couldn't think of a better located hotel--easily within walking distance of most of the tourist spots in Old Istanbul. (Although the area abounds in many hotels) . Breakfast is sumptuous. The hotel does not have a restaurant (or room service). This is rarely a problem though since cafes and restaurants are aplenty all around....

Excellent location in old Istanbul. Just blocks from the Blue Mosque. Great restaurants and shops within easy walking distrance. Rooms were small but comfortable and beds were nice. Only minuses - you should not drink the tap water and none other is provided in the room - you need to get your own. It would be nice to have a...

No crowds! No lines at the historical attractions! No waiting for a table to dine at any restaurant and sample excellent food. Excellent and alert police presence throughout the country! ...and I did find a superb restaurant serving traditional food outside of Cappadocia named "Obam." Hotels, shops, attractions, and restaurants are very clean and the Turkish people are very professional...

We very much liked this hotel and they were very attentive & helpful when I fell and broke my foot, although our excellent tour guide facilitated a lot of the efforts. The breakfast was lovely with a rooftop eating area with glass surround and a view of the Sea of Mamarra and the Bosphorus. Close to Arasta Bazaar, too!

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.
