After reading TRIP ADVISOR reviews we booked this hotel online direct with the hotel. And we were not disappointed! Efficient & friendly booking service - great rates, very helpful front desk, great breakfast, nice clean rooms. Plus a free pick up at the airport made this a perfect visit. It's walking distance to lots of 'must see' spots as well... More

Wonderful hotel, what a great value for your money. We booked a triple room. Because many rooms were available in this period, the staff offered us a double and a single room at no extra charge! Both of these rooms had a wonderful décor with a spacious, squeaky clean bathroom. The decorations of the lobby, breakfast room and hallways were... More

We have just returned from a week in Istanbul staying at the Hotel Sapphire, which was superbly located within very easy walking distance to the main cultural venues of Haghia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the Bazaar Quarter. It was also ideally located for the railway station, ferry ports and the Galata bridge to Beyoglu. It is set in a... More

This wonderful hotel and the friendly and helpful staff (especially Engin) helped make our stay in Istanbul thoroughly enjoyable. However it could have been much worse; no thanks to EasyJet and their hotel affiliations. Originally we were booked into another hotel, booked via EasyJet, which we were told was central to everything in Istanbul, but was actually miles away as... More

Well situated hotel in the old historic part of Sultanhamet on a charming cobbled street restricted to pedestrians. Staff are very courteous and eager to make your stay comfortable. I stayed in a room that has been very recently renovated so everything was new and well appointed. Good breakfast food selection.

Hotel Sapphire is one of the best hotels I've been stayed in and one of only a few hotels where I've been treated like VIP.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
