From the time they picked us up from the airport Ottoman Hotel Imperial staff made you feel right at home till our last day. Staff are great, very helpful, friendly, excellent service. You can't beat the location either, right in the middle of Sultanahmet close to all the important attractions. Our room was over looking Hagia Sofia, clean and comfortable.... More

I enjoyed my stay, the service is mostly good and the rooms are decent - good size flat screen TV and a jacuzzi bath tub :-) I had a view of Haya Sofia from my window, and it´s fairly easy to get around to the tourist spots around the city. Only issue, it is far from all non-touristy things like... More

We spent 6 nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is good being close to attractions, the own website descriptions are entirely accurate. The staff could not have been more helpful, cheerful and generally charming. The terrace is a delight whether it be for a cool drink, tea in the afternoon or dinner in the evening.... More

We were met at the airport by our driver who took us direct to the hotel, this was included in the price. After a good welcome and check-in we were taken to our room which although not large was well-equipped and had a good bathroom. The room was equiped with air-con and the usual astronomically priced mini-bar. The only down... More

During my business trip to Istanbul I stayed at Ottoman Hotel Imperial for 2 nights, to bad I didnt have much time to see any historical sites, because this hotel is located close to all the historical sites. Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Underground Cistern all within short distance away, you're not far from restaurants and shops of Sultanhamet.... More

Short and sweet, very lovely hotel, ideally located in the old part of Istanbul, you can reach all the important historical sites within minutes. Staff are very helpful, polite, spoke excellent english, rooms are clean, decent size, comfortable, breakfast choice was good, nice terrace to lounge and have your tea or a drink, good value for your money.

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.
