Score from 415 reviews Very good
Very Good location, almost close to Tram Station, very close to mosaic market, restaurant, good view room found in Annex building, Good range of breakfast @Azade Hotel just opposite to the hotel, 3 mins walk to Blue Mosque and 5-7 mins walk to Topkapi Palace. Excellent staff support.
Wifi sometimes disconnected in the Annex building, not having good signal always.
Although the building was old, the room itself was clean and very comfortable. The interior was nice and bathroom also clean. The main reception was friendly.
The receptionist at our building (not the main one) was quite intimidating and did not speak much english.
1.5 Star hotel by international stds.
Beds, Room, Bathroom, Noise, No customer service.
Good hotel location. a few minutes to Blue Masjid and Hagiya Shopia
Staff reception is not patient to serve just because some doubts from the guest to be asked
The prime appeal is the location and included breakfast. The room was small but comfortable.
The wifi wasn't very reliable.
1- the best thing about this place is its staff and if it wasnt for them we wouldnt have stayed in the hotel especially haydar that we met the first night and sorted everything out and basically saved our trip 2- the location of the hotel is convenient close to the sultanahmet trumvay station and hagia sophia topkapi palace blue mosque archaeological museum and basically every historical place in sutanahmet is within 4-15 min walking distance
the hotel feels old and doesnt have the small hotel vibe the rooms seem run down and the toilets are a disaster ( vent didnt work the tub felt like its made from plastic and the closet was hardly attached to the wall ) --we ordered a family room for 5 adults ... 1- the hotel has 2 sections, the actual hotel with the reception and and apartment building which is a separate building with no elevator --the 5 person family room was in the separate building there were 1 double beds 2 twin bids and one added bed arranged in a manner that there was no space between the beds, id say the room can fit maximum a family of 4 with 2 toddlers and it is not fit to have 5 people in it -- we were offered a roon on the top floor of that building which was bigger and had 2 double beds with wooden door separation between the beds and a balcony this is a nice room but we couldnt take it since there was no elevator and it was on the top floor id say it fits a family of 4 perfectly --we got moved to the hotel building and got 2 bedrooms room 302 the vent in the toilet didnt work and when taking a shower it got really stuffy when taking a shower , the bathtub is really poorly made and felt like it was falling apart room 101 and 103 the beds are stiff but room 103 is bigger **summary and suggestion : in turkish standards for the price you can find better options and a better experience
The triple room in the apartment section with stone wall was very pretty and very comfortable for the 3 of us. The staff was outrageously kind, courteous and always ready to help out. The location was perfect for those who want to get everywhere without a car or taxi. Everything in the old town is in walking distance.
Lovely little hotel in Sultanahmet, a stones throw from the Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque in a quaint little street. Best place for visiting the area Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, always smiling. Breakfast is across the street, wonderful spread.
Nothing. Maybe wifi was a bit spotty but that seems to be the trend everywhere we go in Turkey

Location, cleanliness, service, value
Please change the Shuttle bus time It shows 08:30 but bus arrived around 09:00
This is our 3rd time. We were upgraded and stayed at one of the sister's hotel. Love it so much, little bit spacious compared to our previous one (travel with small children).
Location is good, 5-10min walking distance to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, and tram station. Very near Arasta Bazaar and plenty of mini marts to get amenities. And breakfast was splendid. Recommended to those who want a decent place to stay, not 5 star level, but definitely a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
The rooms are close to one another, and i'm actually unsure how soundproof the walls are. Just a minor negative point though.
Location of the hotel Service of the staff Buffet breakfast
Internet speed could be improved
Within a walking distance to many places of interest such as Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, Grand Bazaar and City Center. Very good view surrounding
The room seems small especially the bathroom. The wifi line signal was poor. The hotel location however is near to places of interest in Istanbul
Clean, comfortable and nicely decorated rooms, excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, restaurant on top of the nearby building with phenomenal view.
Birds in the restaurant.
Location ,, location . Staff
The room is small but it's ok with me and I don't need more space, the breakfast in another building but it's ok you walk 24 meters only
great people great services
good location, breakfast included and very kind staff
the non smoking room had a bad smell
Very helpfull staff
Cleanliness of the bathroom, (flusty shower) Don't operate or very difficult Wi-Fi accessibility
it was good
The location is absolutely perfect. The room was really nice. The bathroom was a little small but the staff, the location, the room...it was all perfect.
The hotel is steps away from the Blue Mosque and easy walking distance to historical sites. The staff is exceptional in every way and attentive to the needs of guests.
My room was on the top floor and the signal dropped out.
The staff are both accomodating and friendly, if you're after somewhere quaint, authentic and right in the heart of sultanahmet, the Hippodrome hotel certainly won't disapoint.
1. Easy to find. 2. Staff are very helpful. 3. Breakfast is included. 4.Easy drop off (no traffic congestion) 5.Walking distance to Blue Mosque, Top Kapi, Arasta Bazar etc
