Rooms were small but the amiable staff and their helpfulness overshadowed the size of the place. Location is excellent, within walking distance of all the tourist sites in sultanahmet. Breakfast was okay, they...

The staff was very friendly and helpful apart from the breakfast help who seems to be annoyed by guest or at least made this impression. The room was just OK(ish). Good breakfast. While hotels are generally expensive in Istanbul, I still expect certain things when booking a room at this price. The hotel needs a general dusting/cleaning as did our...

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.

“Choose the rooms on the top floor with a terrace and view. Those are the best rooms; though its a steep climb up the stairs to the 3rd floor. NO LIFT.”
