I read the other reviews of the Nowy Efendi, and agree with all of them. The main reason for our highest review is the staff. We stayed at the Efendi in May of 2014 and the front desk staff remembered when we walked in this June. TWO YEARS!! Wow, we were welcomed with a smile and help with the bags...

Excellent super clean and very central stay. Extra friendly and helpful. We felt special every day. Great breakfast and rooftop area with view of all the major attractions as well as the Bosphorus strait. They go the extra mile. Aircon a great plus.

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.
