We stayed here for a week arriving late night Monday 18 April 2016. The staff quickly took our bags from the cab and straight to our room. The stay includes a breakfast buffett which we only had once but it was very good. We had three cats that we shared our breakfast with. The room was clean and spacious. The... More

كانت رحلتي رائعه جدا للفندق، كان الترحيب جميل جدا و الاسعار مناسبه، و اعجبني تحديدا جوده الاكل بالمطعم. كما يوجد بالفندق موظفين يتحدثون العربيه بطلاقه. 😊😊 My trip to the hotel was really amasing, every one was welcoming, the food was great and i liked that the staff knew many languages.

A small ole world establishment, in a great location. As others have mentioned no elevator, but what do you expect in the ole homes (as they were) in Sultanahmet. Staff extremely friendly and courteous, always ready for a chat to make you really feel like you're welcome. Bathrooms need a little attention but they work and that's what matters. You... More

The hotel is nice in general. It is near the tramway station and the blue mosque . The staff are really friendly and the rooms are moderately clean in general. The terrace had an amazing view. However, our suit was on the last floor and there was no elevator... So we would think twice before going up or down. 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.
