Fantastic little hotel, with great staff and amazing location, overlooking the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Stayed on the 3rd floor and the hotel gave us free late check out. But it does have a few drawbacks though, cars can't stop outside the hotel due to the location of the hotel, breakfast can get a bit tedious after a few...

There is very few things that can be said for this hotel that has not been said already. It is a majestic hotel in the centre of Istanbul next to Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque. Definitely recommend for all tourists as most attractions within walking distance from the hotel.

Great location close to attractions and public transportation. Excellent service, very helpful and professional staff, true to Turkish hospitality. Rooms are not very large but have all the amenities the modern traveler needs. My room had an amazing view of Ayasofya Museum. Great sight to wake up to every morning. Highly recommended.

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.
