Hotel Saint Sophia, hotel in Istanbul

Set in a 19th-century building and totally renovated in 2013, Hotel Saint Sophia has views over Hagia Sophia courtyard and offers luxurious rooms decorated with marble and teak wood.

Location: The Hotel is located smack in the middle and right next to the most popular tourist attractions. It took me literally less than 3 mins to walk from the hotel door step to the entrance of Haiga Sophia entrance, and about the same time for TopiCapi Palace. I was able to walk to Blue Mosque or Haiga Sophia for all 5 prayers. Staff: Another reason i would rate the property very high is the staff. All the people i interacted with are extremely polite, very helpful and always looked for an opportunity to go above and beyond to help me with my needs. Special shoutout to Enes, Taha and the Managers (i forgot the names) working.

Basilica Cistern

This cavernous space is the largest remaining Byzantine reservoir in Istanbul. Constructed in the 6th century, it originally provided water filtration for the Great Palace of Constantinople, and continued to supply the Topkapi Palace from 1453 until the modern day. Opened to the public in 1987, you can now explore its lit walkways and be amazed by the decorative, water-worn columns.

    We have spent 4 nights in Mytra Hotel and have to really recommend this accommodation. The hotel is in a great area, in the walking distance to Sultanahmed Square and many sightseeings (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Tokapi palace and many more), surrounded by many restaurants. We felt really safe. The staff was really helpful, they gave us many good tips and ideas on how to spend our limited time in Istanbul to its fullest.
