My Son and I visited Istanbul twice the past week. We ended up staying at Antique Hippodrome hotel both times. The rooms are basic but absolutely clean and de beds are good. The location of the hotel is nice, there are some restaurants and shops but the people in the area are not pressuring to get you inside. It's a...

I stayed here in the beginning of December when the street in front of the building while arriving looked like a fairy-tale with all seasonal decorative lights and Christmas tree in front of the place, side by side with the cosy restaurant, which also belongs to the same very likable owner. The location is superb, situating in the heart of...

very good location at the middle of the centre of Istanbul. A comfortable room for a good (low) price. The room was clean and there was an opportunity to have dinner in the restaurant of the appartment.

Arriving at Antique Hippodrome after a 24 hour flight was like the first bite of a hamburger after being stuck on an island for 3 months. The owner is kind and generously helpful. We had a private room with shared bathroom, but we basically had the place to ourselves. It's in in the heart of Istanbul so we could walk...

We had booked a high quiet room.All that was available was a twin roomed apartment (room 301)on the top floor. This was allocated to us on the understanding that we might have to move later.As it...

Hippodrome Apartment (aka Antique Hippodrome) is either an excellent value or an ok value depending on which room you get. The first two nights of our stay, we had pre-booked online and got a superb en-suite AC room with all the amenities you'd expect from a much more expensive place in the same area (see Room Tips). We decided to...

The owner is very helpful and the stay was nice in all ways. The taxi driver didn't find the place since there are many Hippodrome hotels in the area, so you should bring a good map with you. The area is nice and quiet, and it's easy to access all the main tourist attractions. The room was nice and clean....

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.

“The double en-suite AC rooms are the best value (definitely worth it to pay the extra for one). If you have a choice, the corner one facing Kucukayasofya Cad is very nice. Try and avoid the shared bathroom rooms facing the side street, particularly if it is a hot time of year.”
