The location of the hotel is just perfect! It is in a quiet street 5 minutes walk away from the centre/sights/shops/restaurants. The hotel has only 4 rooms, therefore the atmosphere is very calm and friendly. Our room was beautiful and well eqipped - a giant bed, enough space for our stuff and clothes, place to sit and relax, nice rugs...

Very cheap holiday (under 40 euros per Night for two person). We stayed in big suite called "Topkapi". It was large and had nice jacuzzi in it. Staff was friendly and helpful (let us keep our packs in safe place after check-out because our plane left at evening). It was nice, cheap little hotel in quiet area right next to...

This very small hotel on a tiny stret in Sultanahmet was a perfect place for a 3 night stay in Istanful. A very good breakfast with eggs cooked to order. The proprietor runs a tour service specializing in the Christian sites across western Turkey, and speaks decent English. They were very helpful on several occasions. Highly recommended!.

My entire family- 10 people in ages 68 to 5 - went on holiday to Istanbul and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The rooms are fully equipt and clean and the location is close to all the main sites but also on a small and quite street. I would like to especially mention the owner who took the...

Having stayed in other guest houses in Istanbul, this guest house stood out in many ways. It did not feel like a hotel, but more of a home-stay. Upon arrival, the host took extra time to welcome us and gave us a list of things to see and places to eat. Our room was very spacious, clean, and elegantly decorated...

I've been lax in entering my reviews from our trip last July. We had a lovely stay at this B&B. While it does appear to be off the beaten path and in a neighborhood rather than a bigger touristy area with large hotels - don't let that fool you about the quality and service. We were traveling as a family...

Room ambiance was great, but location (downhill) and breakfast options for the price paid were not up to par. Sites were all walking distance and decent options for food and coffee all around. It was hard for taxis to locate, but if you don't mind walking (uphill), then the tram stop was 10 minutes away.

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.
