Our room was very clean and quiet, and the location can’t be beat for old town charm near the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and Topkapı Palace. The bed and bathroom were very average, and there were some marks from old water damage on the walls....More

Great hotel close to all major tourist attractions. We had walking distance to most places and thanks to great staff, we also learnt how to use Turkish public transport with no problems at all! Definitely worth your stay in Istanbul.

About
Description
Artefes Hotel is located on walking distance of such historical and major city sights as St. Sophia (Aya Sophia/Hagia Sophia), The Blue (Sultanahmet) Mosque, The Cistern Basilica (Yerebatan Cistern), Topkapi More Palace, The Grand Bazaar (Kapalicarsi) and Spice bazaar) Misir Carsisi. Old City and its palaces divide the historical peninsula down the middle and lead guests directly from the hotel into the heart of Sultanahmet. Less

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
