Enjoy your stay in Istanbul!
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.

MARVELOUS owners and staff, rooms and garden, breakfast, MARVELOUS location for touristing ! Shall return with friends in spring 2019. Cannot imagine staying in a traditional, Hilton, Marriott type hotel when there is the HOTEL EMPRESS ZOE!
We enjoyed our time at the Empress Zoe, a small, comfortable, extremely well located boutique hotel. The breakfast in the garden was lovely and of high quality. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. Our room, one of the suites,was very comfortable and well appointed....More
We stayed here as our first stop in Turkey for two nights and the location suited our purpose very well as it is literally right next to main tourist sites. However, I would recommend another location if your stay in Istanbul is any longer (perhaps...More

Hello, I am Ann, the owner of Hotel Empress Zoe. Three of our standard doubles have balconies. The special top floor double has a terrace. If a balcony is important to you then you need to specify that need when you reserve, and we may not always be able to accommodate that request especially for weekends and short stays. The Sultanahmet tram stop is not a long walk, but I would really recommend booking our pickup service from the airport as it is not much more than a regular taxi and gets you easily from the airport to our door - otherwise you can waste time on crowded public transport and there is a change at Aksaray. If you have luggage it is just not worth it. Happy travels !
