    Location 8.72 /10

    The Sokullu Pasa is located 655 ft from the coast of the Marmara sea, to the south of Istanbul, behind the Sultanahment area, the old working class district of Istanbul. The hotel is close to the main historical sites in Sultanahmet (a 15 minute walk away). Allow 25 minutes for the transfer from the airport (11 miles).

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 37 rooms of the hotel are set over three floors (with no elevator). They are classically decorated in yellow and red. Most of these are air conditioned (there is a fan in the others). They have satellite TV and a small mini-bar. The bathrooms have a shower cubicle, toilet and hairdryer.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The Sokullu Pasa is a former Ottoman residence from the 16th century, which was completely renovated in 1986 and again in 2000-2001. Its wooden face is painted pale pink and outlined in white. The entire interior of the hotel is in yellow hues, like the lobby, which is simply and soberly decorated with an Ottoman dressing room. Behind the building you can rest in the little garden, unless you prefer to unwind in the pretty little hammam.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The dining room is on the garden level. It is vaulted and the walls are decorated with fake stones. The wooden furniture gives it a more rustic than Ottoman feel. Here breakfast is served buffet-style. For lunch and dinner, choose from 8 starters, 13 hot dishes, 12 meat dishes and 6 desserts. In summer, you can also eat in the garden.

    To know

    The hotel was built on the exact site of the residence of Sokullupasa, a great Ottoman Vizir (1512-1560).

      • 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.

      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.

      A charmless but functional hotel which has the major advantage of being almost on the esplanade of Sultanahmet and a stone's throw from the small restaurants of this area.

      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.

      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.
