Sitting in front of a community soccer field, this quiet small typical street opens up to a grand vista The overall theme is that of opulence and understated luxury. It exudes comfort from the Hamam downstairs, to the tiles in the bathrooms. The furniture is Gand Ottoman, but the comfort is all present. Not only you get a computer connected...

This hotel is few minutes away from the Roman Hippodrome and Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Blue Mosque), one minute away from the Kucuk Aya Sofya Camii (ex Church of SS Sergio and Bacco) and two from the Sokollu Mehmet Pasa Camii, in a very quiet residential area of Sultanahmet district.

This hotel is located in the Sultanahemt area, about 5-10 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and the main attractions. The walk is uphill, which can make it tiring, however it is geographically near.

The location is fine to visit the old city. The SPA with Hammam is little but nice: quite surprisingly, it is open ony from 10am to 6pm, which makes it unavailable at the times when you most would like to (i.e. before going out and after coming back from visiting the town.

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.
