I was only here for one night. It is a few minutes walk to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. I had to leave early the next morning and they went out of their way to fix me breakfast before I left even though it was a couple hours before they normally serve breakfast. They also have a rooftop bar.

This hotel is situated a few steps from Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia in a street with attractive cafes and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home. It is very good value for your money and definitely recommendable for a stay in Istanbul.

The hostel is in the historic centre: only 5 minutes walking by the blue Mosque! the most famous monuments are very close to the hostel, you don't need to take taxi o bus, just walking. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is Turkish with some international auditing. I recommend it to everybody!

Orient Hostel - the best choice I could have done in Istanbul. Low price with breakfast included (I could eat my meals on the rooftop terrace with beautiful views on Haga Sofia, Blue Mosque and The Bosphorus).

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.
