We stayed at the empire palace during our visit to Istanbul. Suleman, at the front desk did an excellent job trying to accomodate to our needs and provided excellent customer service. Addittionally, the hotel is very well located, walking distance to all main historical attractions on the old city the bule mosque, grand bazaar, Sofia, etc..... Definately recommend this hotel...

The services of the hotel are great, special thanks to Suleiman, Zakaria and Hasan. You can get benefit from the Tram for transportations and from the nearby stores to buy anything you may need. The breakfast is rich with vitamins and proteins.

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.
