Found Grand Peninsula in Lonely Planet and we were not disappointed! You cannot beat the location of this hotel; in the Sultanahmet area just below the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. 5 minute access to the tram for getting to other places, including the airport. Sapo, Ahmet, and Ramazan are the hosts and are all prompt with email responses when...

The Grand Peninsula has a friendly and helpful staff; they made our stay there a positive experience. The room was neat and clean. The location is perfect for walking to many important sites like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and Topkapi Palace in addition to restaurants, grocery shops, and shopping venues. Breakfast is tasty with a variety of foods to...

We spent only one night on a long layover. Grand Peninsula was recommended to us by a friend. Price was very reasonable ($120/3 people, 1 room, single beds) but this was during slow season. Location is ideal - 20-30 min from the airport and in the heart of the Sultanahmet district. Istanbul's top sights are within short walking distance (Blue...

The great thing about this hotel is its location within the Sultanhamet area. Haghia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque and the Basilica Cistern can all be reached within 10 minutes (walking). The hotel itself is nice, quite clean but very basic. The staff is helpful and the buffet breakfast is satisfactory. There is no lift to reach the upper...

You can walk to all the major sites, breakfast is substantial, rooms well appointed, clean, spacious enough and quiet. We checked in early and had extra complementary buffet breakfast on arrival. Staff helpful and friendly. Reasonable price. No lift so some steep stairs up to rooms and dining area.

This hotel has an outdated style, and quite bad rooms on the lower floor, with paint peels, and door knobs ready to come off. The staff is helpful, and the breakfast is good. For the price range in the same neighborhood, you can find a better one.

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.
