In a neighborhood surrounded by many much more expensive hotels, the Apricot was delightful. It's a five minute walk to the Blue Mosque and to the Tram, which takes you anywhere. Mohammed, the manager, who is always at the front desk, was very helpful with directions, technology, and even lugging baggage, although they installed a lift while we were there....

We loved the Apricot hotel. The staff and management were really friendly and ensured we had a good visit. It is centrally located. Be aware you will hear the call to prayer, but I found it lovely to listen to. The rooms were comfortable and clean.

We have been staying at the Apricot Hotel for years, beginning when it was in a different location nearby. Have always loved it for its location and for its staff----feel as if we are coming home.

A small, well located hotel with a relaxing environment that is perfect for touring the major attractions, within 5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque. It is located in a quiet street with lots of other hotels. The hotel room was small and simple, but clean and comfortable, with a/c, fridge, and tea/coffee making facility and the bed very comfortable....

It was my second trip to the Apricot hotel. Needless to say I am more than satisfied as I am a returning visitor. I go there as its right in the centre of tourist district and yet a little away from the madding crowds. The street it is located in has a romantic and trendy feel and yet the place...

Nicest staff imaginable :-) Very friendly and helpful. Breakfast included tea, coffee, orange juice, boiled eggs, cheese, meat, tomatoes, other veggies, olives, etc. As an older female traveling alone, the area felt safe, even after dark. The hotel is located near the Blue Mosque - go left from hotel, go left at corner. Follow street 3-4 short blocks into Arasta...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
