The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and food very delicious and the service was great. We took the tour package and it was worth it, they showed us most of the city and great views. The hotel is very centrally located with walking distance to grandbazar, mosque and other places. The light rail stop is also walking distance...

I made a reservation for 7 days on booking.com with free cancellation and the pay later option. Since I found a much better hotel I cancelled the room at Santa Sophia yet they charged my credit card although I was supposed to pay at the hotel and not in advance. As if this weren't enough they changed me even more...

Hotel is located in quite good place, close to all important landmarks (Hagia Sophia Museum, Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque etc). It's a nice hotel for short visits. Breakfast is simple. Taxi from hotel to Ataturk Airport costs around 15 EUR (45 lira).

We stayed in the "Family room" with 2 bedrooms and 2 restrooms. Our family included 3 adults and 1 boy of 12 years old. This room is the best choice for a family up to 6 persons. I confirm also all good reviews concerning location and hospitality of this hotel. Highly recommended for a family accomodation.

Fast check in, and out. Small, uncomfortable design bathroom. Delicious, breakfast but very small capacity internal restaurant, (around total 10 tables) as some guests need to wait other to finish before they could start!. But all in all still within average.

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.
