Very good hotel by Topkapi Palace. Rooms clean with en-suite bathroom, TV, A/C & fridge. Quiet location with good views of the palace wall & sea. Enjoyable buffet breakfast on the terrace with pleasant view. Friendly, helpful staff. There is no lift but it wasn't necessary. Free Wi-Fi available.

We stayed almost two weeks. The hotel has a perfect location in a quiet area, in the old city. Ayasofya is only one minute away. The rooms are clean and the stuff is friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast because the view is wonderful. The hotel is a good option for anyone and we will be back soon.

It's a small botique hotel that I stay 1 night. Not a high class hotel but with friendly personnel and passable services and facilities. Room was also small but comfort enough. Located in a quite street in Sultanahmet district.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
