Great location for walking to the main sights. Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable rooms. Really good buffet breakfast with lots of choice and good quality. The staff are obviously proud of their Hotel and want their guests to have the best possible stay.
You could not find a better location for staying in Istanbul, it is very convenient for Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar etc etc etc. The spice Bazaar is a mere 5 mins leisurely walk. There are lots of local restaurants, shops, bars...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.

Yes, the transfer fee to the hotel is free with 3 day + stay. You have to pay for transfer back to the airport. I did not reconfirm before arriving. I do not recall a city tax which may mean there was none or that it was not a large issue. Be sure to go to the restaurant right across the street and just to the right as you go out the door. It is run by a man and his 5/6 sons. I am sorry I cannot recall the name. Have a great time.
