Lovely quirky hotel. The rooms are small very clean but comfortable. Right within walking distance of all the great tourist sights. Excellent location for sightseeing. Free WiFi. Breakfast is more than sufficient
I have stayed in this hotel with my husband last July, we stayed there for 4 nights. We tried to change the hotel after the 1st night we spent there but all hotels were booked and the available ones were very expensive and that's the...More
We picked this hotel based on the advertisement that it had an amazing rooftop beakfast and bar at night. It was closed. The rooms are tiny and bathroom door has a hole in it. The staff is nice and the location is good but it...More
For the price and location, this has good value. It's minutes away from the major attraction such as the basillica cistern, Hagia Sophia, the blue mosque, hippodrome etc. We even walked across bridge to Galata Tower in ~35 minutes. Facility is pretty standard, nothing impressive...More
I last stayed at this hotel 12 years ago when I arranged a 60th birthday. Like me it's aged a bit but, unlike me, not so much that it shows. The rooms, at least the superior ones, are spacious. Both the showers and the air...More

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.

Perfectly safe. In fact I'd say all of the areas making up the Old City are perfectly safe. Personally I walked from Sultanahmet to the Fathi Mosque, Chora Church and almost everywhere else I went during my recent stay, as well as walking the entire Theodosian Wall, making sure always to keep to the back streets and alleys.
I traversed a lot of poor and run down areas and a number of areas with a high refugee population, I always walked alone and I never felt in the slightest danger. In fact I felt far more safe than in many areas in large European cities, let alone the many areas in US cities where I would never dare set foot. The worst thing that befell me was that I sometimes accepted too many glasses of tea and at times had trouble finding a convenient toilet. Hard to blame that on anyone but myself though.
Don't make the mistake of thinking that the snippets of awfulness you see on the news constitutes the full reality on the ground. If that was the case you couldn't exit the front door ever unless living in a remote wilderness.
Hi. Yes you can take Metro from airport to Sultan Celal station. You can search complete route on google. Taxi is much expensive compared to Metro. Once in Istanbul buy metro pass which can be used throughout your stay and... More
