Old City Accommodation

Sometimes, looking for a great place to stay can be tough. Luckily, that's not the case in Old City. Here, you'll be able to pick from no less than 607 options. Expedia's the place to go for the greatest cheap holidays and luxury getaways.

On the hunt for a decent room with an economical price tag? Check out the Azade Suites (Mimar Mehmet Aga Cad No:31 Sultanahmet) or the Georges Hotel Galata (Serdar-I Ekrem Sokak No:24). Both have good reviews, and they don't cost a fortune! On the other hand, we all like to splurge sometimes. So, for a little elegance, the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet (Tevkifhane Sokak No. 1) is an enticing option. Alternatively, see what's on offer at the GLK PREMIER Acropol Suites & Spa (Akbiyik cad. No:21).

Staying within easy strolling distance of the Hagia Sophia will prove very handy when you're ready to check out this not-to-be-missed attraction. Check into the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites & Spa or the Senatus Suites and you'll be able to saunter over as often as you like.
