A mix of fine and not so fine. Visually splendid Turkish vegetarian buffet breakfast on top floor with stunning view of the water and playful wild dolphins. I was on my own in a standard room, with view of neighborhood hanging laundry. Was hoping to stay for a full seven days, and tried to negotiate a better price (238 euros...

With all our respects to our guest’s comments and feelings, we must admit that our standard rooms don’t have a special view but we offer Sea and Blue Mosque views from our Superior and Deluxe rooms. On the other hand, we serve the breakfast at the Terrace where you can enjoy the magnificent views of Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia...

Design wise, you're...

The best part of this hotel is location, the traffic around the old city is terrible, if you go to Istanbul for a few days is a must to stay in the old city, if not you will spend lots of your precious time getting in and out. Just getting out of your hotel and walking for 3-5 m to...

We enjoyed our 5 nights here. The rooms were pristine and comfortable. The buffett breakfast was excellent with an extensive variety of foods including halva and turkish delight! The hotel was slightly off the main drag with a short walk to plenty of restaurants and all the historical sights. Free Wi Fi. It was only 8 degrees outside and the...

All the receptionists spoke excellent english and friendly. We asked them some advises about sightseeing and they proposed correct information and gave us suggestions with patience. Also they handled all our demands efficiently. The room was a little small for three persons but very clean and confortable. Our room was at the second floor. We could see the beautiful Marmara...

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.
