We stayed in Nowy Efendi for our wedding Anniversay this weekend gone. My husband had notified the hotel that we were celebrating our Anniversay and they were meant to have decorated our room. Their advertisement says they offer a fruit basket and wine. While we are Muslims and didn't expect wine we didn't think the fruit basket would be withdrawn...

Great staff (extremely kind and helpful). Location is very close to major attractions, surrounded by many restaurants. Family apartment with connected 2 bedrooms was perfect for a couple with 2 children. I just do not recommend to go by car because the street is very narrow and there are frequently vehicles parked in the middle of the street.

I MAY have mixed up the Nowy Efendi with another hotel in a previous review. If so THIS is the straight scoop. The hotel was clean, well run and we enjoyed our stay there. The staff, Ercument in particular, was excellent. Ercument went above and beyond in providing help and advice. Good location and easy access to public transport and...

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.
