Hotel Sultana House is located few meters from Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmet Mosque and ancient Roman horse-chariot stadium. The tram is about 1000 meters from the hotel.
The hotel itself is apartment turned into hotel and I would say it is 3-stars hotel. Price is extremely affordable and includes breakfast. There are few restaurants and grocery stores nearby which is a great help.
I would recommend this hotel because the staff take care of you. I wanted to see Istanbul by night, so, the receptionist came up with several package tours. I selected a boat tour with dinner by night. I did not make mistake. The dinner was healthy for both vege and non-veg clients. The drama and plays backed by Andalusian/Turkish music was pleasure to hear. Belly dancer could beat any dancer I have seen in Cairo, Egypt (the home of belly dancing).
From this hotel I also took a tour of Galata Tower from where legend says that the man took a flight in the 9th century and landed successfully about 2 kilometers away across Marmara River. He made his wings inserting eagle feathers.
I also took tour of cemetery of Imam Abu Ayub Ansari mausoleum. Ansari was the companion of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and was the chief commander of the army to conquer Constantinople.More
