    Location 9.7 /10

    The Hotel Ferhat is situated in the heart of Sultanahmet, a few feet from the Blue Mosque and other sites of the historical centre of Istanbul. The airport is 11 miles away. Allow about 25 minutes for transfers.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The 64 rooms of the hotel offer a basic level of comfort. They have air conditioning, satellite television, a small fridge and a telephone with direct line. The small bathroom has a shower cubicle and toilet.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1991 and renovated in 1997, the Ferhat is an austere modern 4-storey building (with lift). Its large lobby is dominated by a staircase leading to a mezzanine. To relax after a day of sightseeing, have a drink at the bar or take tea in the Turkish salon, which is decorated with false windows and artificial flowers.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The hotel's restaurant serves very simple breakfast buffets. For lunch and dinner you can choose one of the dishes on the small set menu. Do not expect room service to provide food outside restaurant opening hours: it only provides drinks.

    To know

    Despite the immediate proximity to the Sultanahmet sites, the views from the rooms are totally uninteresting.

      • Value for money 6.74
      • Location 9.75

      The Fehmi Bey is a modest hotel built in 1996 in an exceptional setting near to the city's historical monuments. The Blue Mosque is only 2 minutes away on foot! The district is lively, and ideal for walking around both by day and night.

    • Golden Horn Sultanahmet Golden Horn Sultanahmet Golden Horn Sultanahmet
      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 6.79
      • Location 9.44

      The Golden Horn Sultanahmet is stylish but suffers from too much decor. Nevertheless, it does offer the considerable advantages of a very favourable location, fine panoramic views from its rooftop terrace, and a few ground floor guest rooms suitable for guests with reduced mobility.
      The standard rooms are fine for couples but if you are bringing your children you might find them a bit cramped. In this case, you'll be best off opting for rooms in the superior category, which are more spacious and more appropriately designed to the occasion.

    • Daphne Boutique Hotel Daphne Boutique Hotel Daphne Boutique Hotel
      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 6.92
      • Location 9.53

      A quiet, discreet little place at the heart of the old town, the Daphne guarantees a relaxing stay in one of the most charming parts of the city.
      In terms of design, the decor here is rather old-fashioned and never too busy. The hotel climbs up towards the Blue Mosque, its entrance met with cobbled streets that look truly magical when lit up at night.
      It's a good choice for those travelling as a couple.

    • Arena Hotel Arena Hotel Arena Hotel
      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 7.06
      • Location 9.58

      The Arena hotel is nestled in the little streets leading up to the old town, behind the Blue Mosque, and is a real flashback to the atmosphere of Istanbul's past.
      It is a timeless hotel with an inescapably intimate feel thanks to its past as a private residence. The ambience is relaxed and the staff welcoming. Many of the visitors here are foreign, and guests can often be seen with their noses in books.
      This is a boutique hotel that has stayed true to its word when it comes to delivering luxury, while also adding a family feel and a hint of preserved traditions.
      What is more, the only noise to be heard (although it is quite some noise at that!) is the muezzin's call to prayer from the Blue Mosque that stands at the top of the hill.

      • Value for money 7.08
      • Location 10.0

      The Maisons de Sainte-Sophie are definitely one of the best places to stay in Sultanahmet, a few steps away from the Topkapi Palace. This set of Ottoman residences, with its multicoloured wooden walls, is reminiscent of a charming village of doll houses. The interiors are refined and tastefully decorated. A great place if charm is more important to you than comfort.

    • Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water

      • Value for money 7.34
      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
