Because the people were so friendly! All the staff of the Star Hotel made us truly feel like close friends. We spent 2 brilliant weeks experiencing the...

The hotel is located in a cosy, lively street. Some people may find it a bit nosy in night-time, but we didn´t have any problems sleeping when we closed our window. The room itself was nice looking, the only problem for us was that it was heavily attack with mold, especially the shower. It smelled really bad, not nice if...

This hotel is very nice and located in the heart of Istanbul. The personal of the hotel are very friendly and hospitable. You will feel yourself as at home there. And if you will come back to that hotel again they meet you as best friend or the part of their big family.

We loved our stay at Star Hotel and Guesthouse. 5 nights at this small hotel, perfect location for sightseeing (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace) and restaurants. The cobblestone street has busy and animated night life. Make sure to ask for a room that is not "street-side". We had absolutely no noise and slept soundly every night. The room was...

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.
