Best Hotels in Sultanahmet

Here are the best Sultanahmet lodgings based on feedback from Turkey Travel Planner users:

Luxury

Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul, on Tevkifhane Sokak, may be the best deluxe hotel in Turkey. Bosphorus views from the rooftop terrace, and it’s perfectly located within a few minutes’ walk of the city’s top sights. It’s often fully booked, so reserve well in advance!

Spectacular Location

Mavi Ev (Blue House) is just excellent, with smooth, friendly staff, modern comforts, and a location—right across the street from the Blue Mosque—that is nothing short of spectacular.

Family-Run Boutique Inn

Sarı Konak Oteli is really elegant for a small, family-run inn: tastefully furnished, with all the conveniences, and Byzantine ruins in the tiny terrace garden.

Ottoman Inn

Dersaadet Oteli is on quiet Kapıağası Sokak just a few minutes’ walk from the Blue Mosque, with a refined Ottoman boutique-hotel ambience and friendly staff.

Value-for-Money

More than you bargained for: the Apricot Hotel is convenient, comfortable and friendly, and the owner is out to make guests feel they’ve received more than they’ve paid for.

Inexpensive

Terrace Guesthouse is tiny, but surprisingly inexpensive, given its perfect location just around the corner from the posh Four Seasons Hotel. It has what the Four Seasons conspicuously lacks: a grand view of the Bosphorusfrom its breakfast terrace.

In Beyazıt

The Hotel Niles in Beyazıt has both regular rooms and beautiful Ottoman-stylejunior suites with superb marble bathrooms and fine decoration, all in an interesting neighborhood close to the Grand Bazaar.
