    Location 9.67 /10

    The Sultanahmet Palace is just behind the Blue Mosque, on the slopes of the working class, historical area of Sultanahmet. So it is just a 3 minute walk from the main historical sites of the town. The airport is 11 miles from the hotel. Allow about 25 minutes for transfers.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The 36 standard rooms of the hotel are set over two floors (with no elevator). They are spacious, immaculately clean, and elegantly decorated. They have air-conditioning and satellite television, a mini bar and telephone with direct international line. The really original part of this hotel are the bathrooms which are like a miniature hammam in greyish-blue marble. But that is just decoration: instead of a steam bath, there is a shower. The Bathrooms have a toilet and a hair dryer.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1999, the hotel was built in the Ottoman style. The interiors are elegant and decorated in the Byzantine style: a large marble staircase, columns, friezes... The spaces are airy and painted in warm colours. The building is located just below a small floral courtyard surrounded by pergolas. In the middle is a marble fountain whose burbling noise is refreshing. You can have Turkish tea on one of the little tables outside.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    You can have breakfast as a buffet in the panoramic restaurant, with a view over the Marmara sea and the Princes' Islands. You can also have lunch and dinner there. The menu has a variety of local specialities with a choice of 10 starters, 6 main courses and 4 desserts. In summer, breakfast can be taken in the hotel's garden.

    To know

    The rooms offer different view. Avoid the rooms with a view of the parking lot, and go for one with a sea view or a view of the gardens and the Saint-Sophie Mosque.

      • 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.

      The Yusuf Pasa Konagi hotel is one of the nicest places in old Istanbul. Do not expect great comfort from this Ottoman residence - rather, try to appreciate the colourful atmosphere in the neighbouring streets. A family hotel for those on a tight budget.

    • Kalyon Hotel Kalyon Hotel Kalyon Hotel
      • Easyopinions 3.50
      • Value for money 6.99
      • Location 8.28

      The marvellous view over the Bosphorus, the welcoming ambience and the excellent restaurant combine to make this hotel a real winner. Indeed, it is when you are in the restaurant or piano bar that the establishment can really be enjoyed in all its splendour.
      However, in order to truly attain the status the hotel might otherwise deserve, it could do with gym and spa facilities.
      This is a sophisticated establishment, but it has the potential to be even better.

      • 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.
