Slightly on the pricey side but totally justified by the stunning views or the city. We watched the sunset in awe.

It was the best coincidence i've ever stumbled upon. We were were taken up an elevator to their roof top for brunch. When i stepped... More

I got the kofta and chips and it was the best I've ever had! My husband got a lamb steak which was cooked to perfection. To top it off the view is absolutely breath-taking! You are literally sat between the Haga Sophia and Blue mosque and also have a brilliant view of the sea. Would definitely recommend!

As always we came for dinner and lunch at this restaurant. It has probably the best views of the Bospherous, and is in the middle of the Blue Mosque and Aiya Sophia. They also have a rooftop bar and cafe. If visiting to take photos please be respectful and have at least a drink if not a meal. It must... More

Food is nice. Service is not so polite in general but of course this is also a matter of the waiter. Overpriced but you should go there in spring early afternoon...Unbelievable view between Agia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.Very romantic when night starts to fall and the lights are turned on.

Indeed as many reviews have mentioned, "The Best Views of Sultanahmet". The food was typical turkish fare and we enjoyed it. The service was attentive as the ladies got knitted wraps as the evening... More

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.
