Pros: Location. Minutes walk from Sultanahmet The street on which it's located is very nice with quaint eating places and cafes Decent price Wifi Cons: Staff not great. They'll see you carry your stuff and struggle into the hotel but won't help! Rooms small and dingy 'Something' about the rooms doesn't feel entirely hygienic

This was the best stay ever .Almost a dream for me to wake up and see the top of the Tomb of Rumi from my window every morning. Everything is walking distance and it is very centrally placed. The hotel staff also are very friendly and helpful.

Pros: Location: Absolutely perfect; close to Sultanahmet Mosque/Hagia Sophia etc. This is pretty much the best selling point of this hotel. Hotel staff are friendly. View for breakfast is amazing.

Travelled to Istanbul with Atlas/Global airline from Luton, which turned out to be excellent value. It included a meal on the flight. Stayed at the Mevlana Boutique hotel in Sultanahamet. We booked an economy room - which was small, but had everything you would expect, daily cleaning and changing of sheets, good clean bathroom/shower and very friendly staff. Small point,...

And to be honest you don't even need an alarm clock here, as our room 204 was upstairs right next door to the lift/elevator and the human traffic started at around 06.00, including the ignorant door slamming from other "Guests" right through the morning as this was the way up to the little restaurant above. Having said that, this hotel...

Checked in to Mevlana for 4 nights last week with a friend. Location - great, literally 4-5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque. The tram line is just outside the mosque. Lots of shops near the tram line. Booked an economy room and that's what we got - an economy room! It was small but that's what I paid for....

Amazing location, and incredibly helpful staff. Emre was welcoming and gave us all the information we needed. Really appreciated the stay we had here, and we'll be back soon, inshaAllah (God-Willing)! Rooms were comfortable, and clean. The tramway stop is a close walk, which gives you easy access to Istanbul and the major attractions.

We had a great time in Istanbul and this hotel was in a super location in the old Part of town, literally down the road from the Blue Mosque and Hagai Sofia, perfect to explore the local sights and loads of restaurants. It's a pricey area so be prepared to spend a bit more on food and accommodation here. The...

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.
