This is an extremely basic hotel without much to offer except a pleasant breakfast room. The A/C they claimed to have was absolutely ineffective, so we spent two sweltering nights with the windows open to the very noisy street. We would have left after the first night if we could have done so without losing our money. In retrospect we...

We recently stayed at Artefes hotel while on holiday in Istanbul. The gap between our expectations based on the hotel website and our actual experience was enormous, and not in a good way. It was very hot during our stay and despite the claims on the hotel website that there was air conditioning, there was no AC - just a...

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.
