We stayed in the top studio with terrace. Had everything we needed, and more, Kitchen with everything you need to prepare and cook, Free WiFi, with strong signal. The host Saban is amazing, nothing is too much trouble for him. Looks like a private apartment from outside with your own key for entry. Will definitely be staying here again

The location is excellent due to nearby attractions. Apartment was clean and and nicely decorated specially family room with nice sectional sofa and kitchen equipped with crockery. I find the washroom may be little tight on space for overweight people. Saban owner of Ekim apartment was able to accommodate all needs during our stay. Nice accommodation within budget.

Great location , and great set up if you're traveling with kids. We had 2 bedrm ground floor. Clean, great sized bathrm, and we were able to whip up breakfast, and snacks in the kitchenette. There was no desk service to give recommendations for sights or restaurants. Overall it was no frills and no flaws, simple.

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.
