Stayed here 4 days waiting for my companions to catch up with me for start of a long vacation trip. The front desk staff are all fluent in English. Excellent advice is given about various excursions that can be arranged. They do all the work for you, arranging for taxi or shuttle as the case may be. The hotel likely... More

Cleanliness requires improvement, but very friendly staff. Bit of a trek to sultan ahmet. Overall a good experience and the swimming pool and turkish bath were a lot of fun, especially for the kids. Recommended mostly because of the helpful staff.

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.
