Hotel Peninsula is located in Sultanahmet behind the blue mosque. The rooms are of varying size and have air conditioning and clean bathrooms. The rooms themselves are clean and rather spartan, but why watch television in your hotel room when on vacation? We really enjoyed the hospitality throughout our entire stay, including the breakfast on the upper terrace in the...

We stayed at two hotels. Both in the same area. This one was very quiet, despite being just a block off from the main street. We stayed in the basement, which seemed to help with the noise. Also, the staff blocks of the street to auto traffic. The location is great. You spend all your time outside the hotel, so...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Hotel Peninsula in Istanbul. We are a small boutique hotel, nestled quietly at the end of leafy laneway. We are nestled amount this city’s great historical landmarks and you will instantly transport your mind heart upon arrival. When you go to buy your morning paper, you stroll past our 489 year old Turkish Hamam, tangled with vines and moss. This truly is an immersion into an oriental parallel, and we are pleased to be able to offer you warm, friendly accommodation during your journey here. The Peninsula has become a cultural institution over the years and we look forward (“wait with four eyes” in Turkish) to welcoming you to our extended family. ... more   less
