We had 3 wonderfull days in Ottoman Imperial, a very cosy, quiet, well situated and - most important - with extremely warm personel. Just besides Agya Sofia Museum, in the heart of the old city. Everybody has a smile for you, even after midnight !!! We would definetely stay there next time we will visit Istanbul.

Ottoman Hotel Imperial is trully a quality hotel, located in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul, near Hagia sofia, Topkapi palace, Blue Mosque and close to Grand Bazar, Spice Market and the famous Bosphorus.

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.
