Must be one of the best 3-4 star hotels out there. The 3 best things about the hotel were Location, Location, Location. Its a 10 minute walk to most attractions from the Blue Mosque, to the Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, to the Bosphorous Cruise, etc. It is also located on a nice, quaint street with great restaurants and even a...

This hotel was by far the best hotel we stayed in on our trip around Europe and almost the cheapest, Selcuk was a fantastic host, who helped us with every nothing from a room upgrade (thank you!!!) to finding good restaurants. This hotel was so reasonable and of highest quality. The private sauna room was simply bliss after a long...

Having visited Istanbul previously I knew that this hotel was very well located in a good area. I emailed ahead to ask for separate beds for my daughter and I and we were given an absolutely wonderful room - in fact the best room in the hotel :) It had a really laid back vibe, everything about it was perfect....

We were really pleased with this hotel. It was clean, the staff were friendly (particularly Selcuk), the showers were great, and the food was good. The hotel is located on a busy street but the rooms were surprisingly quiet (we didn't even hear the Blue Mosque which is just outside the window). Don't let the fact that this doesn't have...

Great value - in general, Turkey is a very affordable destination but this hotel was by far one of the best bangs for our buck. We booked the Imperator room (#407 - which is on the top floor) and we were not disappointed. Very spacious with lots of cupboard space and room to move around - it felt truly luxurious...

Senatus Hotel is the best value hotel in the Sultanahmet area. Besides its convenient location in the Sultanahmet area (and all the advantages that it brings), this hotel probably features the largest rooms of all the boutique hotels in the Sultanahmet area. We were blown away by our corner room which boasted décor reminiscent of the Four Seasons, a picture...

I recently traveled to Istanbul with a large party. We all stayed at the Senatus Hotel. The hotel is small and located right in the heart of everything. Within walking distance to major sites, shopping and restaurants. We received a friendly greeting, easy check in and had a really adorable and comfortable room. We were pleasantly surprised since we didn't...

Cosy, clean and chic hotel in the heart of Istanbul (old city). We could walk to all the key attractions in the city. Very friendly, attentive staff - we changed our itinerary last minute to fly to Cappadocia in the middle of our stay, and they accommodated us by holding our luggage safely and making sure we had a room...

Brilliant location and walking distance of all local attractions and huge choice of local restaurants in the quirky old town of Istanbul. We stayed on the fourth floor at the front of the hotel which we recommended by other travellers. No real noise issues apart from a wedding party that travelled through the street honking horns at midnight. Didn't really...

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.
