I found this little hotel to be centrally located and within walking distance from ALL tourist attractions. The rooms are clean and fully air-conditioned. The staff in the hotel are always available to assist with queries and have a cheerful attitude.

We stayed for a week in October, this hotel was a great base for our first visit to the city. Walking distance to all the main attractions and the tram network, there are a number of restaurants and a small shop if you want to buy any snacks or drinks to take back to your room. The room was small... More

We love this place! It's like 5-10 mins walk to every major attractions. Staff (esp Sophia, a beautiful Armenian lady) are very friendly and helpful.

The Merial is a small hotel with limited facilities but it is an absolute bargain. Breakfast is served at a partner hotel just 20 yards away and is an excellent buffet spread. The hotel itself seemed to have only about 10 rooms but there is a front desk and a friendly member of staff always around. Rooms could probably do... More

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.
