All reviews blue mosque turkey this family run hotel turkish coffee within walking distance grand bazaar home away from home minute walk no elevator old city small hotel hagia sophia major attractions yogurt airport pickup breakfast spread wonderful city
Neat and clean rooms adequately furnished, delicious breakfast and located very close to all the tourist attractions, most friendly managers in my entire trip (both saleem and omar) and speak good english, something you will rarely find in turkey.
I booked this hotel based on Booking.com rating of 9.3. In fact I had canceled the other bookings when I found out about this hotel so generally the expectations were quite high. It’s commendable that all the staff members were very helpful, friendly, courteous and...More
Nice hotel in a very strategic position next to the main attractions and to the tram station. The room was comfortable, the staff was great (thank you again Omar for all your tips) and the breakfast was fantastic!
We stayed here as a family group. The hotel is in a great location for sightseeing and Omar and the other guys in reception are extremely friendly and helpful and will give you tips on sightseeing. The buffet breakfast has food to appeal to all...More
It was a pleasure to stay with them.
Rooms are very nice, breakfast was full of choices and very close to the blue mosque but the best part of our stay was definitely the staff members. I've never met someone like them, so nice and...More

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.

The hotel can arrange a transfer on a minibus - there is also a travel agent almost opposite who also advertises transfers. Price - from memory it was around U.K.£10.to Ataturk. stature is on the Europe side. The same as via a travel agent. There’s a timetable.
(There’s another airport on the Asian side and that ismuch further away. The guy (s) on Reception at the hotel are really helpful ... for example they said don’t buy anything in the Grand Bazaar as it is a tourist rip/off area. The little shops are outdide the Bazaar are more normal prices. The Spice Market is good value and really worth going to. Enjoy your trip. Julie
P.S. the tram/metro are great for getting around the city.
