The hotel was very modern and clean. Room was a reasonable size but about on par with European hotels. Staff was very friendly, helpful. Bathroom could have a little more space to put things and to hang towels. We would certainly stay here again.

Stopped here one night whilst in transit, I would like to return & stay longer. The hotel was close to many key tourist sites. It was surrounded by lovely restaurants & interesting shops & an easy walk to river. The staff were outstandingly welcoming & helpful. Our room was very nice & immaculately clean.

The hotel is very good overall in terms of location (minutes away on foot from most historical attractions in Sultanahmet), cleanliness and staff. The only draw back is the small size of standard rooms, but this is expected given the fact that the hotel is a restored historical building.

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.
