This inn was amazing. The staff was super nice and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the breakfast was really good. It is also a plus that the inn is located in a very safe neighborhood. (This is coming from a female who was in Istanbul by herself for 3 days.) The inn is centrally located in the...

It's a nice little hostel, secure, clean, and the swedish buffet style breakfast is a good way to start your day. Good wi-fi, the rooftop terrace and lounge is amazing. Great location, 5 mins' walk to Ayasofya or down the hill to the Marmara Sea's shore. Definitely recommend to others!

It's down a quiet street in a beautiful area with easy access to the nearby attractions like the blue mosque, topkapi palace and haya sofya. Plus it has a brilliant view from its rooftop patio. I would 100% recommend this place.

My girlfriends & I stayed at this wonderful guesthouse in the end of March 2014. Its location was perfect - right in the middle of Sultanahmet - the city centre, where most of the sight seeing happens from. Vahap & Gokhan (Manager & Front Office Desk) were wonderful. Not only were they helpful and accomodating, they went out of their...

Stayed here twice for almost a week each time during my 3 weeks in Turkey. The guesthouse has both hostel dorms and privates. I was in a 4 person dorm which was quiet, clean and cheap. The bathrooms are spotless and well-maintained. The staff is super friendly and I had a great time hanging out on the rooftop terrace with...

We had a nice stay at the Agora Guesthouse. We booked a double room with a private ensuite bathroom and were surprised to see that we had a lovely view of the ocean and the Asian side of Istanbul. The guesthouse was very easy to walk to from the tram and was steps away from tons of restaurants. Nights were...

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.
