My husband and I had a wonderful three days in Istanbul, thanks to the staff of the hotel. The manager Mr Ulu, the bellboy Nahid, receptionists Guyen, Arzu and the waiters Onur, Barush and Abdul Rahman made our stay enjoyable and memorable one. They went out of their way to accommodate us and were very genuine in their efforts to...

We arrived to find that our on-line booking agency had only booked one room rather than two. This was no problem for the reception staff who immediately allocated two rooms even before confirmation by the agency. The rooms were very clean with excellent facilities. The hotel has a pool and a fitness centre which were very good. The location is...

Our stay at Best Western Antea Palace was by necessity; our flight out of Istanbul was cancelled after many delays. We found Antea Palace on Trip Advisor while still waiting in the air terminal. We didn't arrive until after 10:30 p.m.; however, the nightshift staff were incredibly helpful, specially RESAT. He had a room for our family of four quickly...

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.
