We loved the location and the wonderful terrace in this small, quaint hotel in the historic district. Our room had a beautiful sea view and the usual ammenities you would expect in a hotel in this class. There is an ample breakfast served on the terrace and beautiful views of both the Blue Mosque and Haiya Sophia. Unlike some of...

Location is good...a few blocks from Ayasofia and Blue Mosque. The room was clean and had ample room but the walls are thin and the front desk staff is not friendly. The restaurant on the top floor had good breakfasts, including eggs, meat, yogurt, lots of different types of bread, figs, cereals, and toppings for the yogurt. The "orange juice"...

Located on a shabby street in Sultanahmet but walking distance to all the cultural sights (purpose of trip). Hotel was very plain and a bit dreary, not the boutique hotel it was sold as. Absolutely no charm. Breakfast was mediocre but with coffee that resembled light tea and orange juice that was clearly TANG. Staff/service was inconsistent with breakfast staff...

My partner took me to the Obelisk Hotel as a suprise weekend in Istanbul for Valentine's Weekend. The hotel is above average in many ways and it is certainly very well located, just a short stroll from the Blue Mosque and the Ayasofia. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable but our biggest problem was with the terrible soundproofing. We...

This hotel has just been refurbished. We booked with Last minute.com and were very pleased. The pictures on the hotel website do not do the place justice.

The hotel is undergoing a renovation and it's almost completed. We stayed there as part of a tour group from the U.S. The hotel is in the Old District of Istanbul just a short walk from the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and Haia Sophia. However, don't waste $$ on a Sea View Room unless you get to see it beforehand....

The room was large, comfortable, well maintained, and very clean. The breakfast was generous and Turkish (not American). The staff was courteous and helpful, particularly Mr Turkmas. The only downside was the hotel provided (at high cost) car to take us TO the airport - a very rude driver! On the other hand the driver of the car (provided free...

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.
