Incredible staff, really helpful and nice. They make you feel like home. The location couldn't be better, very central but quiet neighbourhood, close to the main atractions, restaurants and to the metro.

We had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at this guest house over 2 occasions during our holiday. On arrival from Istanbul airport we were met at the door by a lovely lady Malisa who bent over backwards helping us settle in, advising us about the city, and generally keeping us entertained. It would have been quite a challenge as...

No doubt a great guesthouse in a strategic location as most attractive sites are just nearby. As we are coming from Sabiha airport, it took a bit long to reach the hotel, with bus and then taxi. And, offered more varieties to choose for breakfast compare to other hotels that we stayed in Turkey.

We spent two nights in the Berk Guesthouse. The hospitality of the owner and of all the staff were excellent, they were very helpful, nice and made us feel like at home. The location is great as it is only 5 minutes walk from the major attractions (topkapi palace, blue mosque, agia Sofia, etc.). We slept in Room 42 which...

After concluding a business trip with my wife in Taksim, I had an extra night to spend in Sultanahmet. I was at first drawn to Berk House by its location: hard by the Four Seasons and only blocks away from the area's major attractions, Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque & Topkapi. Although check-in was at 11:00, my room was ready...

We loved this hotel! Located close to tram station and all the major attractions in Istanbul. When I mentioned it was our honeymoon, they went out of their way to make our experience special and memorable, which they did. We got the beautiful room with a terrace from which you can see the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sofia. Rooms...

Our two night stay was a little short...but it couldn't have been in a better place: location, service, staff and breakfast- all good. What topped off the experience was a surprise birthday gift- thanks to Berk guesthouse for the rest we needed and the convenience we wanted.

Just returned from a wonderful stay in the Berk Guest House. The hotel is set in a great location in the Sultanahmet district and only a 5 minute walk away from the major sights (Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque and many others).

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.
