I chose this hotel due to the prior reviews which were not wrong. Since I was traveling by myself and this was my first trip to Turkey I wanted to be someplace that would also offer guidance. I have never stayed at a place that...More
This hotel experience was one of the best. Not only because it is a perfect location and comfortable rooms and affordable price, but the service really made a huge difference. Omar and his partners take care of you personally, point you in the right direction...More

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 hotel can arrange a transfer on a minibus - there is also a travel agent almost opposite who also advertises transfers. Price - from memory it was around U.K.£10.to Ataturk. stature is on the Europe side. The same as via a travel agent. There’s a timetable.
(There’s another airport on the Asian side and that ismuch further away. The guy (s) on Reception at the hotel are really helpful ... for example they said don’t buy anything in the Grand Bazaar as it is a tourist rip/off area. The little shops are outdide the Bazaar are more normal prices. The Spice Market is good value and really worth going to. Enjoy your trip. Julie
P.S. the tram/metro are great for getting around the city.
