This hotel is only a few minutes' walk from Topkai Palace, Ayasofia, and Sultanahmet in a very cozy side street. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They make you feel at home and serve a very good breakfast. If you need help with transportation or tips about sightseeing they will help you as well....

The location is perfect. The owners are very kind and helpful. Isim even lent us her travel card for the tram and bus service so we didn-t have to buy one. The breakfast was great. I would definitely stay there again if I go back to Istanbul!

The location is near all the major attractions (Sultanahmet/Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia are just a 5 min walk). The room was very clean - and cleaned daily. The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

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.
