The hotel is very comfortable and well priced. The patio for outside dining has one of the best views in Istanbul of the historical attractions and the water. The breakfast is a delicious spread of food with something for everyone. The staff is helpful and thorough. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Istanbul and hope to stay...

Very good hotel. Big and ver very clean rooms. Amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner and the service was simply perfect, for example you can ask them to change your bed if you feel that it's too hard or too soft. Also, they told us lots of suggestions about places to visit, how to move on the city, restaurants, etc... In...

I'm not easily impressed but this was a top, top hotel. It wasn't the most expensive option but it was in a great spot, with views from the terrace over the sea in one direction and the old city and mosques in the other. Service was spot on, the whole place was very clean, breakfast and dinner on the roof...

If you don't want 5 star and the full glitz & glamour (& why would you want to in Istanbul) then look no further. Fabulous location, amazing breakfast, great dinner location on rooftop, very clean roomy rooms etc. etc. We stayed for 5 nights to meet up with our small group tour of Turkey & wanted for nothing more.

It has wonderful views of thewaterfront in one direction and the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia in the other, all of which you can see from a very pleasant rooftop Terrace restaurant/bar.

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.
