Thanks to the great staff we felt completely welcomed and at home at the Zeynep. They have a great terrace, and a very nice breakfast spread with hard boiled eggs, cheeses, olives, tomato and cucumber, cereal, etc. The rooms are small and basic, but extremely clean, and the showers have great water pressure with no shortage of hot water. Ask...

This makes the 3rd time that I have stayed at the Zeynep Sultan. Each time I have received the same warm service and hospitality provided by the staff. Yes, the rooms are small and the bathrooms even smaller, but everything is impeccably clean and in good condition. Most of the hotels in Sultanahmet have breakfast terraces on the roof, but...

We stayed 15 days in hotel Zeynep Sultan and only have good words for the hotel. Very helpful staff, especially Yusuf who helps with every information you would want about trips,etc. Now 15 days is a longer time than most tourists in Istanbul do. Therefore you would need a good room and a good bathroom for such a period. The...

Absolutely great location on a very quiet street without traffic about two blocks from the entrance to Hagia Sophia. Our room was very quiet except for the call to prayer. But, we must have been very tired because after the first morning we slept through the morning call to prayer. They have a terrace that has a very nice view...

This is a reasonably priced boutique hotel in a good location. We stayed here for a few nights because we planned on site seeing most of the time and just wanted a hotel to sleep and get breakfast at. The place is great for that purpose. No frills accommodations with a free breakfast (love the simits) right in the heart...

A small family run hotel, where nothing was to much trouble, the bathroom was smallish but more than adequate. The breakfast/Bar had both indoor and outdoor areas with wonderful views, particulary of the Aya Sophia. Comp internet a bonus. Good shoping in the local area and good restaurants of all price stuctures.

Very nice and clean hotel with perfect location and beautiful views. The service was good, althogh I have some notes about their manager) The manager promised to help me with ferry+train tickets to Izmir, but suddenly simply forgot about that and went to check that out when we have already arrived to Istanbul.

The hotel is in Sultanahmet, which is the touristy area of Istanbul, and is close (5 minute walk) from Blue Mosque, Spice Bazaar, Grand Bazaar, so good area to walk around. Rooms are small, but everything is clean, air con, tv, minibar and thats about it. No safe in room (perhaps they have one in reception?) Free wireless internet through...

This hotel had the perfect location as it is a stones through from the Hagia Sophia Museum. The biggest problem was the mosque next door which started their singing at ~4:45am, however we didn't get to concerned with it as we used it as an early morning bathroom break. The hotel had a modest breakfast which was free so we...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The cradle of civilization...Turkey...From Hitites to Urartus, Phrygians to Lycians, from Romans to Seljuks...They all lived here. A city that gave birth to and fostered three glorious empires...The East Roman empire, the Byzantine empire and the Ottoman empire...Once the capital city of these empires, Istanbul is still alive and breathing a mystical blend of air, weary of the contemprary urbanization and cultural clashes. Zeynep Sultan Hotel is where you will blend a magical potion from a Roman hippodrome, an Egyptian obelisque, a Byzantine Church and an Ottoman Grand Bazaar. And maybe you will top it with the Blue Mosque or the Topkapi Palace... ... more   less
