This visit was a return trip for us. We really enjoyed the visit as much as we did the first time, in fact, we were allocated the same room. The breakfasts were good and the view as we ate was sensational. The staff were friendly and if we had a problem it was fixed promptly. We will stay there again...

Star Hotel is a descent place to stay. The lobby is nothing fancy and the rooms are nice and clean. I enjoyed the details such as the lavender pouches, the extra pillows and the slippers which aren't seen in many hotels these days. You could tell that the places needed minor fixes but nothing major. The rooftop terrace is always...

I stayed at this hotel for one night before my tour and it was surprisingly very good. The staff are very accommodating. Carried my bags upstairs and gave me free tea.

It's extremely comfortable and feels like home after a while. The breakfast on the roof with a view of the Bosphorous started our days there. The hosts are friendly and warm. Plus, it's located in the heart of the Old City and all the major sites are at a walking distance. No one shall regret staying here. Missing Istanbul!

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.
