When I arrived I was shown a very small room and asked if there was a larger room. The next day they moved me in to very nice room that was just perfect for one person. I had a desk and armoire and private bathroom. It had a balcony and a view of the water. They did not charge me... More

An extremely Turkish appearance outside but rather dated and decrepid inside. Our bedroom was at the rear of the hotel and it was somewhat gloomy. The bathroom was ancient and smelled damp although it was all in working order! However, that said, the hotel is perfectly placed for all the wonderful buildings and historic sites Istanbul has to offer, being... More

This is a budget hotel. The location is on a quiet street but walking distance to Haggia Sophia and the Tokapi Palace is great. My room was small (there was a bed but no chair), however the bed was comfortable and the bathroom efficient. The room had a view of the sea. Breakfast, which is included, was on a roof... More

Firstly, for the money you pay to stay here, this hotel represents excellent value. The Nayla Palace is a short walk from the biggest and best tourist attractions in the old city and some really good restaurants. The only negative thing I can think of to say is that the rooms are on the small side, but they're comfortable and... More

This hotel can be an inexpensive base to explore Istanbul. We paid only $56/night (breakfast included). It was a basic Turkish breakfast (tea, bread, butter, jam. olives, hard boiled eggs, juice, cucumbers, tomatoes, and sometimes melon), but a great way to start the day. It was served on a rooftop with a great view of the Sea of Mamara. We... More

In the first place, you have to realize that this was not built as a hotel - it was a private house, probably a pretty nice one. Therefore, some of the rooms are wonderful, some of the rooms a horrible, and everything in between. We were somewhere in between, but managed to sneak a peak at the nice rooms when... More

Dirty, terrible place. They gave us a room that was a corridor with 2 beds, with a kind of bathroom where you couldn' t stay sit on the toilet and close the door...we complained and they changed our room...the new room was underneath and not cleaned.

When I arrived in Sultanahmet I had no accommodation booked and was in search of a Hostel dorm, however as I passed Nayla Palace I was offered a private single room (no bathroom) for not much more than what the dorms down the road were asking.

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.
