We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It is in a perfect location; walking distance to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi Palace. Our room had a view of the Hagia Sophia.

UPDATE SINCE 2007 REVIEW: The Valide Sultan Hotel is still our home in Istanbul, where we have traveled 30 times in the past 15 years, and have probably spent a cumulative total of at least nine months or more at the hotel. It is one of the "special class", or "charming" hotels, a converted Ottoman mansion. The location is fabulous,... More

I found this hotel through Rick Steve's book and one off the things he intimated was that this place is a bit "tired". We didn't find that to be the case at all! Lovely interior, extremely clean and tidy, large windows that open either to the very close Hagia Sophia or the Bosphorus. The call to worship is very up... More

The hotel is very centrally located, 5 minutes walk from Topkapi, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. It's an old and cozy hotel. The staff is just wonderful and they make you feel at home.

Excellent Hotel from top to bottom. On arrival, the desk clerk Ferdi was a goldmine of information. He really took the time to get us acclimated to the town, gave us our first Turkish Tea, and made us feel very welcome.

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.
