Ayasofya Hotel is located in a very unique area of Sultanahmet.
Athough just a few minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the tramline with Topkapi and the Grand Bazaar within 10 minutes walk our Hotel is also part of a local community!
Ayasofya Hotel is a 3 star Special Class Hotel located next to the ancient Hippodrome walls, called the Splendone. When you stay with us you become part of living history and the REAL Istanbul.
Around us you can see and meet our neighbours going about their business. Children play in the cobblestone streets, street vendors go past with their carts of vegetables, fish and old wares. The shoe shine man comes by every now and then. The weekly village market is just around the corner on Wednesdays. Sometimes on a Saturday a neighbourhood wedding takes place!
You can get to know our neighbourhood and have a difference experience than just the normal tourist hussle and bussle!
Nearby our hotel are two beautiful famous Mosques The incredibly beautiful Mehmet Sukulu Pasa Mosque which was built in 1571 this mosque is arguably one of the most beautiful in Istanbul with its supurb Iznik tiles and carved woodwork! Formerly a Byzantium Christian site of Hagia Anastasia, it also has a very peaceful cemetery and courtyard. 150 metres away is the Kucuk Ayasofya Cammi - previously the Byzantium Church from the 4AD – the Church of St Sergius and St Bacchus! Now commonly called the Small Ayasofya it is older than its famous neighbour Hagia Sophia! It is visible from our Hotel Terrace! Take time to sit and reflect in their beautiful courtyards!
