The guesthouse has a great location, just steps from Sultanahmet but on a quiet street with a few nice restaurants around. Dogan and Kemal, who run the guesthouse, are unfailingly friendly and informative. I had a great room with a patio, tv, and wifi for...More
Stunning views from the terrace of the Sea of Marmara, Asian Istanbul, Aya Sofya and the Blue Mosque. Dogan and Kemal were great sources of information about how to get around and what to do in the fascinating city of Istanbul. I must have asked...More

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.
