            Great Location, Helpful Staff, Comfortable Stay

            We had a lovely time at Hippodrome Hotel. It's situated in Sultanahmet, near the 4 must visit places in Istanbul - Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, as well as conveniently located near the tram station. At night it does get noisy from the restaurant next door, and also, on the last day of our stay, the electricity in our room couldnt be switched on. They offered to change rooms within the hour, but then we were leaving already to catch our flight. Overall comfortable stay.

            location, walkable to almost all major attractions in the old city and to the tram, great value

            Had a suite that shared with adult children in a separate area closed off by a sliding door, for almost the same price as a regular hotel room! Was on the top floor of another building nearby, partial views of the water on outside balcony and window view of the Blue mosque, but climbing 3 flights of stairs every time came back from walking after a long, hot day was tough. The hotel was a bit dated, but rooms were clean, air-conditioned and beds very comfortable. Breakfast was in a third building which offered great views and nice but average food. Best place for staying with a family for a great price.

The hotel is at the bottom of the hill in Sultanahmet, quiet and convenient, but also within walking distance to Blue Mosque and Hagia sophia etc. the room is cosy but comfortable enough for our stay. The staff are very helpful, giving us suggestions for our on going tour but not hard selling. Breakfast is on a rooftop restaurant and it is great!

            As far as location is concerned, it doesn´t get much better than this. Hippodrome Hotel is located in quiet downhill road only minutes on foot away from the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Little Aya Sofia and the Basilica Cistern. The rooms on the top floor have access to a terrace with views to the Sea of Marmara and an unobstructed view to the Blue Mosque. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is good, and served in a top floor restaurant down the street, again with superb views. Good access to public transport.

            We had 4 nights at the Hippodrome Hotel, staying in their Azade hotel at the end of the road. Great roof terrace for breakfast, which was a good Turkish breakfast with average coffee. Room was clean and spacious for three of us, with AC and ensuite WC and shower. Staff were helpful and the best bit, the location! Situated in the old part of Istanbul, right next to the Blue Mosque. With the Sultan Ahmet tram stop on the other side of the mosque, getting around Istanbul was easy using the Metro and Trams.

            Hotel is very close to all of tbe historical places, 3 min walk from blue mosque and hagia sofia museum. Breakfast was also awesome. The only issue was the room size, rooms are too much small. Not as mentioned at the agoda. I booked room of 20m² but actually it was 10m². Same is rooms are at much cheaper rates than hippodrome.

            As other people's reviews are too good, I expected an excellent room. It is, in fact, a simple, minimum and clean room, which is totally comfortable, especially you are out for sightseeing almost all day. It is just too high expectation due to excellent reviews. Breakfast is served at a hotel nearby. You can enjoy the view of the Mediterranean at breakfast.

Location was excellent, walking distance from plenty eateries and main attractions (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofya, Bascilla Cistern and Grand Bazaar). Staff was very cordial especially Mehmud. Hippodrome will certainly be a choice keeping in mind the convenient location in Sultanahmet.

            Location, great breakfast with wonderful view, good price

            We stayed here for a couple nights while looking around Istanbul for the first time. It's hard to imagine a more perfect location. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room a bit small (but who's going to sit in their room all day when you're in the middle of the old city of Istanbul!), though it was clean and cozy with everything we needed. The breakfast is down the street a short walk on the roof of a neighboring hotel that has a stunning view of the blue mosque, the Golden Horn, and the mouth of the Bosphorus. Awesome location. Lots of great restaurants within a few steps of the front door. And in five minutes you can stroll up to where you're standing between the Blue Mosque and the Aya Syofia. Also, it's easy to get airport buses to pick you up right in front of the door. Perfect!

            It was wonderful stay in this hotel. We reserve two rooms and asked to be close to each others. We have got two rooms with doors opposite to each others. Good reception when arrived to the hotel. Rooms are comfortable but one is more spacious than the other one. Staff are friendly especially Mr. Caner who has a very pleasant personality and always offer his assistance and useful information to Hotel's guests. Staying in this hotel for us is another reason to revisit Istanbul in addition to Istanbul itself which it is a great and beautiful place to always visit.
