    Profile: Sultanahmet

    Central Istanbul neighborhood Sultanahmet—in the Fatih district—is home to the awe-inspiring pinnacle of Byzantine architecture, the Hagia Sophia, one of the most impressive and innovative buildings of its time. At Topkapi Palace, marvel at the gems, gold and, priceless works of art in the Treasury, and visit the Harem—once home to the sultan’s concubines.

    The Blue Mosque, with its 6 towering minarets, takes its name from the myriad of blue-green tiles interspersed with stained-glass windows of its interior. The Istanbul Archaeology Museums house spectacular exhibits from various ancient civilizations across 3 separate sites in the neighborhood.

      Vriendelijke en zeer behulpzame personeel, kamers iets aan de kleine kant maar wel schoon en netjes. Maar over het algemeen een goed hotel.
