Excellent hotel and great location. Located right behind the Blue Mosque and views of the Marmara sea. Bulent and Maria were very helpful and nice. A very good stay for cheap price with a great breakfast. Good value and great location near all the main attractions. Will visit again soon. Thank you. Regards. Nayaab.

I've stayed here three times now in the last three years in both the hostel-style rooms and the hotel rooms. The hostel rooms are about what you'd expect: average, but they're also very cheap. They don't have AC, the bunk beds are short, and the bathroom is all-in-one with the toilet, sink, and shower-head all in the same area. The...

If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the old city this is good value and perfect location - 2 mins to Sultanahmet Square and Blue Mosque . We needed to add extra days to our booking at last minute and they were extremely helpful to find us rooms . The owner Bulent, his family and staff are charming...

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.

“Buy water to take with you as you are advised not to drink the tap water. Plan to spend as little time in room as possible.”

“Hostel rooms don't have AC and are way less comfortable than the hotel rooms, but that is to be expected with hostel rooms. For hotel rooms, try to get a room closer to the front of the building (southwest side) and away from the back (northeast side) as the early morning prayer is louder in the back rooms.”
