Small rooms but comfortable. The hotel is in front of the light-rail tracks so it is convenient to travel on trams. I like the restaurant on the 7th floor. Good food and warm hospitality. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good location for shopping and sight-seeing.(review from a Hong Kong tourist)

The hotel is conveniently located in the historic center. The lobby and bar are decorated in the "orient express train" style. The restaurant is located on the terrace and offers a magnificent view and a very good choice of food. Breakfast room is very pleasant and the buffet is royal: variety of hot and cold plates. What makes this hotel...

Stayed in the Orient Express for 7 days (10.23.07-10.30-07) on a mix of business and pleasure. Booked my room as a package through United (actually Luftansa). Here is my review: Hotel caters to large tours, so expect large groups to come and go. Had a room on the first floor above the lobby, facing the street. Room was small (10'-12'?)...

I like to travel so much.And this time decided to go to Istanbul. It was not my first trip to that wonderful city. And first of all I wanted to choose a hotel that is located close to the main historical places. It is one of the advantages of Orient Express. It is located only in 5-10 min. far from...

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.
