Pros: The location, for been close and well communicate to everywhere within walking distance and for been on a typical Turkish area. Cons: The Staff needs to be proactive, it's not acceptable that they don't check what's working or not in the room before giving it to a Guest! Location: The things to do are endless, I advise you take...

However the hotel itself is very dated , velvet curtains , velvet headboard , velvet everywhere looks like it's in the 70,s, very old decor and rooms are depressing looking.

The interiors were so nice and the hotel was gorgeous. Room was spectacularly luxurious. Breakfast spread was not that good. There was variety but very abrupt and didn't compliment the other things on the menu.

This hotel is very close to the attractions in Sultanahmet area. It has a sea view and the hospitality is really good. Breakfast was complimentary and had many options. The staff at reception especially Mesut helped us manage local tours and recommended various attractions nearby and offered them at a reasonable price. The only disadvantage is that though the Sultanahmet...

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.
