I had the chance to stay twice in this hotel within a span of one week. Irfan, the receptionist has been exceptional in his service. He was ready to go an extra mile to help the customers. In my case when I was having difficulty calling home, he even lent his mobile. Other staff members are also excellent: the manager... More

We, Irfan "my brother" and I, go back a long time. He has developed into a knowledgeable receptionist with a good heart, eager to help where possible. So don't hesitate to stay at Legend hotel! The hotel is located right in the old centre of Istanbul.

The positive things about the hotel, or actually the Motel were friendly staff, clean room, good location. However, I was scammed and was charged $150 a night at the airport hotel reservation. I could have stayed at a much nicer hotel for the money had I booked on line. Learned my lesson. It is nice to be nice, but becareful... More

We stayed here as a group of 3 friends during a weeklong visit to Istanbul. The hotel is very close to the Blue Mosque, which is a short walk away, thereby making it within walking distance to all the key attractions in that area such as the Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazar. The reception is very welcoming and the... 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.
