This is our favorite place to stay anywhere in the world,. Hotel Peninsula is Istanbul's great bargain. We have stayed here many times over the last five years, and will go back as often as we can. Located in a short side street right off the main street in Sultanahmet, it is both in the heart of things, and quiet....

We booked this hotel earlier this year. It was chosen primarily because its location puts you within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, & Topkapi. It's an older district with an abundance of reasonable restaurants and a quiet charm. When we made the reservation the price for the twin-bedded room (with a buffet breakfast on the roof patio overlooking...

Such a wonderful place in the best neighborhood in Istanbul. Near everything but nestled in a quiet corner of SultanAhmet. I can't say enough about how great the staff is: super friendly and helpful.

When we arrived, Sabo (the host) greeted us and informed us that he was giving us a free upgrade. We got two rooms on the terrace rather than the basement. The rooms were a good size and clean. This hotel offers a free breakfast, so that was a nice touch. All the staff is very friendly and helpful in answering...

This hotel is almost perfect - it is centrally located, near the tourist attractions, has a great view from the restaurant, good staff, very clean rooms, free a/c and wi-fi, good buffet breakfast and despite all the pluses, it is still very cheap. I would highly recommend it, unless you have problem with stairs (which I don't). There might be...

This hotel is a gem. It is location centrally located to everything, reasonably priced, clean and the staff is excellent. Amenities are basic but exactly what I look for when I travel.

We had a daytime layover in Istanbul from 8am to 8pm. We needed a convenient base to leave our bags, take a shower and explore.I chose this hotel on booking.com because it had an early check in time (11am) AND a great Sultanahmet settiing AND rooms for just 31 Euro. In the event, we arrived at 9:30am and Sergei the...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Hotel Peninsula in Istanbul. We are a small boutique hotel, nestled quietly at the end of leafy laneway. We are nestled amount this city’s great historical landmarks and you will instantly transport your mind heart upon arrival. When you go to buy your morning paper, you stroll past our 489 year old Turkish Hamam, tangled with vines and moss. This truly is an immersion into an oriental parallel, and we are pleased to be able to offer you warm, friendly accommodation during your journey here. The Peninsula has become a cultural institution over the years and we look forward (“wait with four eyes” in Turkish) to welcoming you to our extended family. ... more   less
