Great Location! Jul 17, 2014
I stayed in the hotel last December.

I had arragned for airport transfer in advance by email. Arriving at Ataturk Airport just before 4am, earlier than the scheduled time, and going out to the arrival lobby, I found the hotel driver had been already there. Arriving at the hotel around 4:30am, I had to ask for an early check-in, but all of a single room I had booked was occupied at that time. So I would have had to wait for a regular check-in time. However the staff kindly offered me a triple bed room with no extra charge. I luckily stayed in the room for three nights. The location of the hotel is perfect. Most major tourist spots like Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia etc. are within a walking distance. Also, a tram station is just near the hotel. You will have easy access to Eminonu Pier and New City. Location, price, service, etc., all things considered, I would highly recommend this hotel.

you can find everthing you expect from a hotel Sep 17, 2012
This hotel's decoration is wonderful. traditional Turkish style paintings. rooms are comfortable and it is very close to everywhere in the main historical part of Istanbul.

Also view from the roof, where you can have your breakfast and dinner, is wonderful. You can see Bosphorus, Mosques, Anatolian side...

There is a light railway next to the hotel... with that transportation mean you can reach most places you may want to see.

Try to make your reservation in advance not to face with the room availability problem. especially in the season, it is full.

A Recommended Hotel to stay in Sultanahmet Mar 20, 2011
During my visit to Istanbul I was staying at Rast Hotel in the Sultanahmet region. The boutique hotel was one out of plenty of its kind in and around Old Istanbul area. I love this cute hotel. First of all, they offer a free airport pickup, which was so useful for me as a solo traveler new to the city. The hotel driver holding a piece of paper with my name on stood by the arrival gate to meet me at the airport. When I arrived in the hotel the hotel reception helped with my checkin and room situation. I arrived before the checkin time so they needed some time to clean my room. They sent me to the hotel rooftop restaurant overlooking the famous Blue Mosque to enjoy welcome tea. My room was on the 5th floor overlooking the historic Sultanahmet area. The room was excellent: very clean, flat TV, hot water, temperature, etc. During my visit to Istanbul, it was 46F, so I was very comfortable with the hotel.

I had a slight problem with the WiFi connection on my laptop that made it l unable to detect the hotel wireless connection. But it was my own laptop problem. Other people's laptops worked fine. The hotel staff tried to help me figure out what was going on with the connection, but was not successful. Fortunately the hotel had an 'internet corner' by the reception area. Two flat-screen monitor computers were available for any internet-related purposes, which I eventually used.
