He ensured a private transfer was waiting at Ataturk Airport and that the room we specified was ready. The staff are very helpful and try their best to make sure you are very...

Excellent location - all tourist attractions within short walking distance. Bit of a walk though to grand bazaar especially if you've done a lot of shopping! Breakfast is plentiful and welll...

And so my two week stay in Istanbul is sadly drawing to a close and it's time to write a little about the Celal Sultan Hotel. For the first week I stayed in a premium room, after which I upgraded to their suite, so those are the only rooms with which I can address. The premium room was more than...

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.
