I had booked this hotel via booking.com for more than 4 months. I received an email from the hotel confirming everything was fine and we even agreed on an airport pickup.

I booked a room at this hotel 8 months ago through booking.com. The booking was confirmed. Five days before I was due to fly out the hotel emailed me and requested I cancel the booking. They claimed a new receptionist was readjusting the prices. It is clear they could rent the room for more than was agreed on my contract....

We spent 4 days in Istanbul in Feb 2013. The staff was extremely friendly. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. The only thing is if you are light sleepler, make sure you contact the hotel and request a room that will have min impact from the morning prayers.

We arrived to Istanbul on February 4, 2013. We requested to be picked up from the airport by the hotel and we are glad we did so.

We had a very positive experience at this hotel about 2 months ago during our brief visit to beautiful Istanbul. Our sea view room on the 5th floor was luxurious, comfortable and very clean.

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.
