The Arife Sultan is a great bet if you're looking for a clean, modern room in an excellent location a block or two from the Aya Sofia and metro. The staff is friendly, the rooms are impeccably kept, but tiny... not a problem for me, but worth being aware of. The breakfast was a nice bonus. Solid bet in often-spendy...

My friend and I stayed here from 28 October 2015 till 05 November 2015. It is conveniently located in the center of all the sightseeing areas. Just seconds away from the Bacilica Cistern, Hagia Sophia, and Blue Mosque. Traditional Turkish breakfast in the morning with many lunch and dinner options just steps away. We had an amazing time.

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.
