I loved the location. 5 minutes from public transportation and close to the sights. I booked a small room, but got much prettier and more of it. Clean, friends, and peaceful place. Nice and friendly staff. Only the view from the window I do not like it, but everything else is good. I would go back there again!

I believe this should be your top choice for Istanbul. Nice cozy room, good location (you can literally walk to all the sites in the old city), and an amazing cost-benefit. The staff was also nice and helpful. Felt like a Sultan!

I like the facilities the room and the area where this Hotel is located, right in the middle of all historical places. Only the view could be something confusing because it is advertised that rooms have a city view, that you might see on your booking page, but when you get there we were offered an upgrade (not for free)...

So far it was good for room and food with low price but maybe you have to increase the service excellence of the staff. The internet was good too. The staff was difficult to smile, not friendly. We thought may be they were so tired because doing many jobs. Cooking and cleaning room were doing by the same person.. I...

Small cozy location of the hotel but rooms and staff are good. Helped us lot in guiding out tour. Breakfast was good. Most imp was it is so close to Sultanahmet Square that you go and come number times. Many small restaurants are near by where you will find good quality food. So over all a good place to stay.

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.
