Love this hotel with its eccentric decor, especially nice in the colder autumn weather as the thousands of hanging lights make it cosy & warm. Its the 3rd time i have stayed here. walking distance from all the best sights and the Grand Bazaar. the new Mameray train makes it easy to zip across to the other side.

We loved staying in this quiet well located hotel and were well looked after by the friendly and helpful staff. I would highly recommend staying here. Interesting and mildly eccentric decor makes for a nice change from the usual bland, banal and pastel environment of many city centre hotels.

When in Istanbul I always stay in the same wonderful room in the Kybele Hotel. Here one is treated as a family member and no effort is spared in making guests feel comfortable, as if in one's own home. The food is excellent and there is no better location in Sultan Ahmet for visiting historical sites in the ancient city... More

The first time I went to Istanbul I ate at the restaurant at Kybele Hotel, and the food was so good I came back for my last dinner two days later.

If you're looking for a completely individual hotel, this is your place! Loved it and everyone who worked there. Rooms are TINY but over-the-top and wonderful. The restaurant serves delicious food but the breakfast is lacking. IF you're looking for a nowhere-like-it-experience the Kybele is your place....

This is my second time staying at Kybele Hotel. You will never find a hotel with such unique decorations. The staff is friendly and helpful and the location is perfect! Try the restaurant at least one evening!

Friends from home recommended the Kybele Hotel and we were able to stay for 5 nights in October. We did use their very affordable and convenient airport service. The hotel is a totally charming environment of red wallpaper, antiques, and collectibles on every floor. Lots of tucked away areas to sit and read or have tea. We enjoyed a top... More

I just returned home from 6 nights with two friends at the Kybele Hotel. Istanbul is a beautiful and fascinating city, but for someone like me who is not used to big cities, it can feel a bit hectic at times.

The Kybele Hotel- What a charming place to stay in Istanbul. The food is fantastic, the staff is wonderful and the location is perfect. This hotel is close to the Blue Mosque and other historical sites. You will definitely want to go home with some Turkish lamps. Make sure not to miss the garden seating upstairs for lunch or dinner.

I have been to Istanbul twice and stayed at the Kybele Hotel both times. It is conveniently located in the Sultanahmet district, a very short walk from the Basilica Cistern, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia. Each of the hotel's rooms is uniquely decorated, but the entire hotel features a multitude of colorful lamps hanging from the ceiling - unlike... More

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.
