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!
Next door to our hotel ıs the beautiful Mehmet Sukulu Pasa Mosque! 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, believed to be the Hagia Anastasia, it also has a very peaceful cemetary and courtyard. While you are staying with us make a visit part of exploring our local neighbourhood!
Children play in the cobblestone streets nearby, 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!
For a few days you can become part of our community and see and experience things you will not see in other parts of Istanbul. You can wander the streets and see life going on around you. Sit in the peaceful i courtyards of our local mosques – Sokulu Pasa and Kucukayasofya mosques are just nearby.
Ayasofya Hotel is a 3 star Special Class Hotel located next to the ancient Hippodrome walls, called the Splendone. Your can be part of living history and the REAL Istanbul.
We have a variety of accommodation available ranging from Suites and Apartments to Standard Double and Single Rooms.
