Profile: Sultanahmet

Profile: Sultanahmet

Central Istanbul neighborhood Sultanahmet—in the Fatih district—is home to the awe-inspiring pinnacle of Byzantine architecture, the Hagia Sophia, one of the most impressive and innovative buildings of its time. At Topkapi Palace, marvel at the gems, gold and, priceless works of art in the Treasury, and visit the Harem—once home to the sultan’s concubines.

The Blue Mosque, with its 6 towering minarets, takes its name from the myriad of blue-green tiles interspersed with stained-glass windows of its interior. The Istanbul Archaeology Museums house spectacular exhibits from various ancient civilizations across 3 separate sites in the neighborhood.

    Definitely worth the price

    It is a very basic establishment in a dog-eared part of town, but it is a surprisingly decent place to stay. The room is sparse, but very clean. And the rooftop terrace has wonderful views of the Bosporous, but man, could it use a bar......or at least a cooler with a few beers.

    The only choice

    Staff at the hotel are incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast has a good spread with something for everyone. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The hotel is in a superb location for sightseeing. If we come back to Istanbul, we wouldn't look to stay anywhere else.

  • 8,0.Very good

    A nice, economical hotel within walking distance of some of Istanbul's major sites. Small, basic, clean room. Nice roof terrace with a view of the sea of Marmara, but steep steps and no handrail makes it difficult to access by elderly patrons. The usual breakfast. Very nice and very helpful staff made our stay very enjoyable. Particular thanks to Serkan, Batu and Charlie (excuse the spelling) for all they've done for us.

    Great but bed not comfortable

    Everything is great service, breakfast, cute small hotel, clean but the bed is very uncomfortable and the cover they give you is nothing and it has holes in it, they need to update the beds and their covers.
