"The receptionists were quite helpful as was the support staff. They managed us a airport shuttle while checking out in a moments notice. The view from our room was amazing and the view from the terrace is worth the admission price. great views of the bosphorus, as well as ayasofia & Blue mosque. It was a 5 mins walk to the sultanahmet square and the road is filled with restaurants. The breakfast was great with decent variety. 2 things which bothered me a little, only one complimentary bottle of water for a 3 night stay & small bathroom. Apart from these 2 nitpicks, Amazing!"

"I used to study World History starting when I was just 8yrs old. Istanbul is an excellent place to put ones very own feet and understand how history books are telling us. Having said in that perspective needs someone to stay in a place where studying gives you a serene and nice ambiance while keeping yourself relaxed walking in the vicinity during night time wondering how people in the Byzantine and Ottoman period would have been - without being exhausted and starved; cafes and restaurants are just few steps away. Walking some 4-5 minutes up the terrain will give us the flamboyant view of the magnificent Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque) and the renowned Hagia Sophia. Standing at the Arasta Bazaar gave me a better view on how this historical area; the Sultanahmet, it gave me a better look upon the Marmara Sea, the Bosphorus & the Golden Horn and understanding how people centuries back and today appreciate the place. Far along the road on my sight is the signage " Hotel Sumengen". This makes anyone feel the real essence of being a traveler and a tourist. This made Hotel Sumengen an excellent place to me apart from the very warm service; I’ll be back to Istanbul, and I’ll be back to Hotel Sumengen."

"Location of this hotel is superb! Only 2-3 minutes walking away from Sultanahmet gardens, where you will directly access to Hagia Sophia and The Blue Mosque. I was traveling with my 79 yo Mother, using a wheelchair occasionally. We booked triple room type to get extra space for our luggages and her wheelchair. Room has window but the view was in fact decorated wall. Bedroom was clean, bed and pillows were comfortable. Bathroom with shower cubicle was clean. Our toilet bowl was a bit of a problem as the water kept running after we flushed but technician managed to fix it. Breakfast variety was great for us! They alternate eggs menu every other day, which was good for us. Staffs were helpful and friendly, as they were trying their best for us to check in, especially by look at my old mother who needed to rest and refresh upon our arrival at the hotel. Overall our experience was great! We liked the hotel, we recommend it to friends and family. Thank you!"

"This hotel is centrally located if visiting the Old City sights is your main aim. The breakfast terrace - with views of the Sultanahment mosque and the sea - is a pleasant place to start the day, or to lounge at any time. Our room was neat and impeccably clean, with a great view of the Sultanahmet mosque. The neighbourhood is quiet (except for the calls to prayer) as it's at the quieter end of the Hippodrome, but within easy reach of all other areas of the city."

"Staff are very nice and helpful even through we faced a bit of language barrier. The hotel is in remote location where you can walk to Blue Mosque and other attractions in 7 to 10 minutes. Budget room on ground floor is clean through a small part of the wall needs to be repaint but I am totally fine with that. The room on the third floor has view toward the ocean; facing the same direction with the rooftop where you can have a stunning view toward the sea side. Recommended! "

More about Sultanahmet

Sultanahmet – Old City is the focal point of the European side of Istanbul, once ruled by the Byzantine Empire. This is where most tourists stay while visiting Istanbul, and there is an extensive selection of accommodation in Sultanahmet – Old City.

The entire neighborhood radiates around the Hippodrome, which was once the centerpiece of life in the Byzantine capital. The main structure is gone, but the garden of sculptures and monuments here date as far back as the 4th century. The crowning attraction of Sultanahmet is Saint Sophia (also known as the Hagia Sophia). For a full millennium, this basilica held the world record for largest enclosed space, and it’s still a dramatic and impressive site.

Istanbul may have first flourished as under the Byzantine Empire, but there were just as many impressive developments under the Ottomans. The greatest Ottoman addition to the Old City is the Blue Mosque, built in the early 17th century. It’s still an active place of worship, but visitors are welcome outside of prayer times.

It takes days to properly explore and appreciate the Old City, strung with cafés and restaurants serving a heady mix of European, South Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Fare. Visitors can explore Divan Yolu Street with its maze of side streets to find carpet merchants, hookah bars and Turkish coffee shops.

The tourism industry in Istanbul has grown substantially in the last decade, much to the benefit of hotels in Sultanahmet – Old City. The best selection of new or newly renovated hotels is on the south shore of the peninsula, while a few are located to the north where they offer fine views of the Hagia Sophia. Options range from grand five-star enterprises to historic boutique inns.
