This is not necessarily THE best hotel in Istanbul BUT I think you would be hard pushed to find one that is better located!
The rooms are clean. Our family room was small but adequate for the 4 of us. The breakfast terrace has wonderful views of the Blue Mosque and surrounding area.
Staff at the front desk are friendly and you can pay by credit card.
Unique Quality: Lovely views from the terrace.
Directions: on the tram line opposite Sultanahmet park/Blue mosque
Very clean and cheap
I stayed at Star Holiday Hotel, Sultanahmet, Istanbul. To me, this is the best budget hotel to stay in Istanbul. I paid 18 euros per nite (Nov 2008) plus breakfast for 3 people (dorm for 3). Breakfast is okey – bread with butter, chocolate and jam, hard boiled egg, fruits, salad, coffee and juice. Even though it’s a budget hotel, but the decoration looks like a mid range hotel. They have a nice lobby with a big TV for guests to relax. The staffs are great – Altin, Yassin, Thamar, they answered all yr questions with smiles. Internet is free for guests. They also let me use the staff’s kitchen, so I cooked everyday when I stayed there. Location was perfect. It’s only about 50 meters from the Blue Mosque, 80 meters from Aya Sofiya and Palace Cistern. A cheap grocery store is about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The tram stop is about 3 minutes walk. I will definitely come back !!!
Directions: From Eminonu pier, take tram to Sultanahmet. Exit right at the stop. The hotel is only 50 meters away (next to a restaurant).

Re: Istanbul hotels
Just returned from turkey and stayed at Side hotel. Excellent location and clean. Walking distance to grand bazaar, blue mosque and Saint Sophia. Around $60.00 Euro/night. We stayed there 5 nights and were very pleased. It is just a small hotel, Very safe area.
Re: Istanbul hotels
