This hotel has an excellent location, just a short walk from Haghia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the center. The staff is really helpful and friendly, and our room was fantastic. I really liked the paintings on the wall. Although the view was not very nice, but i think it depends on the room.

It was nice and clean hotel. The location also very strategic, near the shops, restaurants and public atractions. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only one thing that we barely can sleep because near shops and restaurants.

What a wonderful place. My wife and I recently enjoyed an idyllic three-night stay at Star. The rooms were clean, well outfitted, and charming. The hotel is ideally located in Sultanahmet within a short walking distance of Istanbul's major (and quite majestic!) sites. More than anything else, we appreciated the service. The service staff and hotel owner were wonderfully friendly...

It was more than OK. Super location. However, in the summer it may be a bit to loud at night. I got a room in the basement but as it was an economy room and I only used it to sleep, it was just fine!!

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.
