If I were to write all the things we liked in details it would be very long review. I'll try to be as quick as possible: 1) very friendly staff that will always try to help with any of your needs 2) great location, only couple of minutes walk from Sultanahmet, yet in very quiet neighbourhood 3) room spacious, very...

We spent five nights here and were totally pleased with our experience. The hotel staff were warm, inviting, friendly and helpful. The room was fine, although the bed was a bit stiff. When I couldn't figure out how to make the TV work using the remote controller, one of the staff came up and showed me the newest invention: an... More

The hotel was in a great location, just a short stroll from great restaurants and the Blue Mosque. The room was clean, the bathroom newly renovated. The bed was extremely hard and the wi-fi not great. Also don't book the airport transfer, we waited 40mins then had to order a taxi to make it on time for our flight.

The Ipekyolu is a quiet, comfortable, affordable little hotel within walking distance of Topkapi Palace, the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Just across the street from the train to everywhere. Simple furnishings, spacious rooms. Lovely view of the Bosphorus from the terraces. Shopping and many restaurants all around. Be sure to get a waterview room!

Light, bright, newly refurbished, spotlessly clean room; friendly, welcoming and helpful staff; good breakfast; short walk from Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace & Blue Mosque; local cafes adjacent; nicely away from the main hotel & restaurant drag. Brilliant!

The best things about this hotel are its location--it is right across from the Cankurtaran Train Station (near the Marmara Sea) and at the bottom of a hill that leads up to Sultanahmet. There is a city-subsidized eating facility (Cankurtaran Sosyal Tesisi) on the Marmara sea side (with the famous Kennedy Avenue or Coastal Road running alongside). It doesn't serve... More

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.
