Well the double room we were given wasn't very impressive, shower was small, bed was king bed but also kind of small. However the Hotel's location is perfect, the breakfast is very good, room service is very good, 2 free small water bottles every day. I would recommend this hotel but always check the room.

Let me start with the positives, The location is amazing, the views from the 6th floor breakfast room are amazing, and they provide a free ride from the airport (but not back). On the other side, the rooms are warn out, torn wall paper, worn carpet, dirty bathtub, pretty unimpressive breakfast, and a staff that seems disinterested. I struggled choosing...

Nice Hotel, great location, friendly staff, ok breakfast, good wi fi, and the free massage chairs are amazing! The single bed mattresses need upgrading to memory foam or something. Decor is grand/fancy which I really like more than modern, lobby area looks posh.

We stayed 6 night, pick up from the airport was complementary. This hotel is a gem in the best position close to the main tram line and historical old town. The room cleaning services were however, poor however. The terrace breakfast became rather repetitive and boring. I wouldnt stay here longer than a couple of nights next time. The best...

Rast Hotel is very conveniently located in Sultanahmet with super easy access to all important must-see places in Istanbul. Our favorite part though was the roof-top terrace where you can have breakfast or just have a drink. The pictures does not convey well the experience of being in this terrace. One word only: AMAZING. Staff was very friendly and helpful....

Taxi drivers in Istanbul are crazy. The ride to this hotel from the Airport was pretty interesting. Beautiful views on the ride to this hotel and it was at least a 25 minute drive. The hotel is located in the historic district of Istanbul on the European side. The hotel is on a brick side street within a few feet...

I had a long layover and didnt get to my hotel until ~10:30/11 pm - by this time, their restaurant was closed and no room service. The staff had an excellent recommendation for a restaurant just around the corner that I definitely enjoyed. The room was tidy, but was a little old appearing and there was mold in my shower...

I've stayed here twice and both times I was very impressed with the quality available for the price. This isn't the cheapest hotel you're going to find in Turkey, but here is why I think it's worth the extra money: Location: This place, first and foremost, is easy to find. If you've ever wandered up and down and all around...

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.
