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.

The exchange rate is better in Istanbul and you shouldn't have too much trouble finding places to change money. Just take enough with you for the first day or so.

"Try to book a room on an upper level which may be quieter. I was on the first floor and it was a bit noisy."
"The elevator is noisy so rooms away from it are better."
"Large rooms, wide space. Perfect for family, couples and adventurous people. Great quality services."
"Avoid the front street, it can be noisy with traffic."
"If couples only, request one double/king bed only"
