Avicenna is a magnificient small hotel that combines the traditional 19th century architecture with today's facilities. It's located to the beautiful area of Sultanahmet, very close to the sights of the Blue Mosque, Santa Sophia and Topkapi.

I strongly recommend this hotel to everyone who plans to visit Istanbul!!!

GREAT BREAKFAST, FRIENDLY STAFF

Gorgeous little boutique hotel 300m from the Blue Mosque! Staff are very friendly and organise tours for you at a moment's notice - lots of little restaurants and bars/outdoor pub areas just near the hotel - walking distance to mini marts for water and snacks etc.

Unique Quality: Lovely view of the Bosphorous from the restaurant on the third level.

Directions: Blue Mosque - 300m

Aya Sofya - 500m

In Sultanahmet

I like the Hotel Avicenna because it's a richly-restored Ottoman-style building with all modern comforts and conveniences in a quiet location on Amiral Tafdil Sokak (No. 31-33)for your info Amiral Tafdil is the grandfather of my wife... just a few minutes' stroll from Istanbul's Byzantine Hippodrome and Sultanahmet Square.
It's also an excellent choice for single women travelers. The Avicenna's 49 rooms make it large enough to host small groups and meetings, but small enough to provide personal service.
Guest rooms are on two sides of the building, and on several levels. Many of those facing east have balconies with views of the Sea of Marmara. Some of those facing west have views of the Blue Mosque. The sea-view rooms are a bit larger and a bit higher in price.
All rooms have modern private bathrooms, air conditioning, satellite TVs, direct-dial telephones, and minibars. Wireless Internet is available throughout the hotel.
The top-floor Terrace Café-Bar and the pleasant Garden Restaurant have fine Sea of Marmara views. The ground-floor breakfast room has garden views.
To find the Avicenna, just walk along Mimar Mehmet Aga Caddesi—the street running by the Blue Mosque on the Ayasofya side—follow it downhill to its end, and the Avicenna is on the right.
When you leave the hotel to see the sights, it couldn't be easier: walk out of the hotel and straight along Mimar Mehmet Aga Caddesi and after less than five minutes you'll bump into the Blue Mosque!

Unique Quality: (I hope that )The hotel manager, Ms Esra Kizilkaya, makes sure that women travelers are especially comfortable and secure. The neighborhood is tourist- and female-friendly.
