Clean & friendly with a gem of a restaurant- Rocket Bar & Grill, definitely recommend, the staff are friendly but don't speak much English. Beautiful roof pub, excellent service with a relaxed atmosphere. Well situated in the old town where walking to main attractions is easy and scenic.

Great stay in Istanbul. Rooms and bathrooms large and exceptional service from staff. Remember to take a swimming cap as you will not be allowed to swim in the inside pool without your pink cap. Great Turkish bath, steam room and rooftop views of the River. Can certainly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I were in Istanbul for business and checked into this hotel for a planned 6 nights ( we had spent the first 4 in a different hotel) because our host preferred that we stayed in the centre- Sirkeci area.

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.
