My family(wife and 2 small childs age 1 and 5) and I stayed at Kumru hotel for 4 days and 5 nights. The hospitality provided by Melissa and Abdurrahman was great, Melisssa was even so kind to take us the hill that goes to the Blue Mosque area. It saved us a lot of energy, what with carrying baby cars...

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and thank you for all of your comments, the complimentary as well as the constructive ones. We have recently added a shuttle service to the hippodrome for customers who, for whatever reason, do not want to navigate the hill from our hotel to the main sites so we...

The room was excellent and Abdul had apple tea delivered to our room in the evening, a nice treat. Initially we were going to have to...

My family & I stayed here 8 nights, occupying all 3 rooms on third floor, 1 Deluxe Suite & 2 Standard Rooms. Given the length of stay & the number of rooms Melissa negotiated a very fair, discounted price with us... excellent value. As mentioned repeatedly, Melissa & Abdurrahman are outstanding hosts!

We were a group of 19 people, 11 adults and 8 kids. We stayed at Kumru for 3 nights in June. I must say for a new hotel, the hospitality was above and beyond. We had pretty much all the rooms in the hotel and Melissa, Abdul and their staff (and son) took care of us like family. They tended...

We spent four days in Istanbul at the beginning of June, as part of a two-week trip through Turkey. And the Kumru hotel was a highlight. The place is beautifully maintained, the breakfasts are to die for, and the owners...I have never met owners so willing to help with whatever you need. Advice, laundry, luggage, transportation, etc. Also, their advice...

We were a party of 4 on our first trip to Istanbul and to the Kumru Hotel. Both experiences were first class with the Kumru Hotel well deserving its rave reviews.I can but believe that any adverse review is the result of a misunderstanding or some other nefarious reason, because the Kumru is nothing but outstanding and great value for...

We stayed here for 5 nights in late May 2012 and the Kumru is absolutely phenomenal. It has eight rooms with breathtaking and stimulating décor, and the atmosphere is serene and welcoming. The rooms are very big by European standards, are well lit with lots of light fixtures and big windows, the pillows are like clouds, and the beds are...

Our one night in Istanbul and we chose Kumru Hotel, which is a recently established boutique guest house in the residential part of Sultanahmet. From the get-go, Melissa and her partner, Abdul showed an amazing amount of personal service that followed us through the entire length of our stay. They, and their smiling team, are what will make this venture...

What a cosy place! What warm-hearted staff! This place is very charming and clean. The beds are comfortable - good sleep. The owners are responsive to every question at every time. My friend and I were quite amazed. Breakfast included a good variation from salty to sweet. Loved the fresh orange juice every morning. I can strongly recommend that place....

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.
