Armada exemplified customer service and comfort in every way. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful irrespective of the hour of the day. I will definitely recommend Armada to my friends and family who are planning to visit Istanbul. Also, Armada is located in the heart of the old city so it was really easy for us to walk...

The hotel was great! Rooms were very comfortable and the bath robes, amazing! Location is very central to the old city - 5 minute walk to the main sights. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We had dinner at the roof top restaurant and it was one of the best meals we had in Turkey! Absolutely amazing!

I recently stayed at the Armada for eight nights, and only have positive things to say. Every single person at the front desk, in the restaurant, and other staff (cleaning people, bellhops) were helpful, polite, and friendly. The room was not huge, but was very comfortable, large enough, and very clean and in good repair. I loved the location as...

In the heart of Old Istanbul there is this great little hotel with the best and most friendly staff in the world. It is within walking distance of The Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. It is surrounded by great little restaurants and nice shops to get a bargain. The rooms are charming and quaint in the traditional Ottoman style. Would...

We stayed 6 days and our stay was without fault. Located within 5 minute walk away from Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. We wanted to experience the historical element of the city and found the hotel to be at the ideal spot. It was clean, breakfast was good with a fantastic view of the blue mosque and Hagia...

I've been here at least 20 times and i come back every time. Good price and location. Hotel reception area very very nice, rooms quit small and not very modern. Still, during the last 5 years the hotel changed a little bit in very good way. Top floor breakfast area with a perfect view and a very very very rich...

So, we stayed here because all of our friends were staying here. It takes like an hour from the airport. The location is weird because it is nice and its not. There is many ruins and left behind spaces around the hotel that make it not as motivating when walking around. Other than that there is many restaurants in area...

We have just returned from a 5 day stay in the Armada hotel. I will start with the hotel accommodation then the location and then talk about Istanbul. We travel a lot and in the last 2 years have visited Prague, Vienna, Bruge, Rome, Athens and now Istanbul. We have stayed in some very good hotels but I think this...

Staff is amazing, patient courteous and accommodating. The roof top restaurant is not to be missed with great views of the sea as well as the blue mosque, the food is amazing. Several people in our group were vegetarians and were surprised at the options and flavor. The rest of the menu is just as appetizing. The rooms are nicely...

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.
