Beautiful city Istanbul, worth a visit. Good hotel to stay as it's close to all the sites we wanted to visit. Aya Sofia is across the hotel and other sites as Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque are walking distance away. Rooms are adequate, clean , cozy and comfortable. Nice staff, very helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet was ok too.

Great little hotel, superb location. Yes, it's not the usual luxury chain hotel candidate, but instead it's a lovely little boutique hotel. You cannot beat the location: The Hagia Sophia is literally 15 feet away!!! The tram stops are a mere 5min walk away, Topkapi Palace also 5min and so is the Blue Mosque. The breakfast is lovely, good selection...

We enjoyed our stay at Ottoman Hotel Imperial , excellent location, we were able to walk to all the important sites, tram stop is about a block away. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms and the bathroom area are a bit small, but then again we were only in the room to go to sleep.

This hotel was great. All the historical sites were within walking distance as were restaurants, shops and cafes. Tram stop was only a short walk away to get to the famous Grand Bazar if you decide to take the tram or it takes about 15 minutes if you walk. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was plentiful with good...

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.
