It is incredibly reasonably priced, amazingly located within walking distance from all the main attractions, helpful and welcoming staff, tasty included breakfast, and an incredible rooftop with scenic views that will take your breath away. It's a modest hotel with an amazing value. I even got to meet the owner...

The staff were extremely helpful and spoke English well. The rooms were very nice and lovely decorated with large bathrooms. Nice roof top for smoking or checking out the view, where you can see Hagia Sofia and the old city and the surrounding water. The breakfast was nice, nothing extraordinary, but with scrambled eggs (actual eggs), and fresh bread (not...

I trip often in Istanbul for work and I like to try different hotel. This hotel is in good location and clean. Breakfast is simply and essential. The price is also good. I don't think it is the best hotel in this price range. Point of strenght the terrace, great.

I would not hesitate to stay at the Nowy Efendi Hotel again on my next trip to Istanbul. The room was spotless, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was beautifully presented, with something new added to the buffet every morning.

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.
