Next door to – and clearly in hot competition with – the Orient, this place has been renovated in the past couple of years and rooms are cleaner and better maintained than those next door...
There are plenty of family-run pensions in Sultanahmet, but few can claim the Marmara's levels of cleanliness and comfort...
There's no design-driven minimalism at this Bauhaus. A small and slightly chaotic operation, it stands in stark and welcome contrast to the huge institutional-style hostels found on nearby Akbıyık Caddesi...
Located in a quiet street far enough away from noisy Akbıyık Caddesi that a good night's sleep is assured, this friendly place offers a mix of dorms and rooms – all with comfortable beds and private lockers...
This friendly place has lovely dorms that are worlds away from the impersonal barracks-like spaces so often seen in hostels. Bright and airy, they feature wooden floorboards, rugs, lockers and comfortable beds; most have air-con...
This unassuming place doesn't have features such as a rooftop terrace, but it's clean and offers the cheapest dorm bed prices around. There's a small breakfast room with sea views.
Hotel Sari Konak
This is a truly classy joint. The deluxe rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, the superior rooms are nearly as nice, and standard rooms, though small, are very attractive...
Agora Life Hotel
Opened in 2010, this hotel in a quiet cul-de-sac around the corner from the Cağaloğlu Hamamı isn't aiming for hip hotel status, instead focusing on service and quiet elegance as its signatures...
Designer style and budget pricing don't often go together, but the Nomade bucks the trend. Just a few steps off busy Divan Yolu, it offers simple rooms that some guests find too small – book a superior version if possible...
This well-run hotel off Divan Yolu is notable for its convenient location and its excellent customer service...
Emine Sultan Hotel
Solo female travellers and families will feel particularly at home here because manager Özen Dalgın is as friendly as she is efficient, and the rest of the staff follow her lead. Rooms have a pretty cream-and-pink decor and some have sea views...
A large wooden house adorned with flower-filled window boxes, the Artefes is almost a prototype of a safe midrange accommodation choice. It offers clean, sun-drenched rooms featuring amenities such as satellite TV and hairdryer...
Grand Peninsula Hotel
A sister hotel to the Hotel Peninsula, a few streets away.
Hallmarks here are friendly staff, comfortable rooms and bargain prices. It has a terrace with sea views and hammocks, and a breakfast room with outdoor tables. Basement rooms are dark, but have reduced prices (d €35–50, f €60–90)...
The gilded exterior of this small hotel (peacock blue with loads of gold) reflects the decor inside, which features hundreds of coloured lights, wooden floors covered in rugs, and antique furniture and curios...
In a fantastic position up the hill a few steps off the Hippodrome, this renovated 19th-century building features rooms that are simply but tastefully decorated with kilims, reproduction antique furniture and brass beds...
Sultans Royal Hotel
Restrained but elegant decor and quietly efficient service are the hallmarks of this recently opened hotel in the peaceful Küçük Ayasofya neighbourhood...
Decorated by Nikos Papadakis, who did such an inspired job with the initial rooms at the Hotel Empress Zoe, the Ararat is tiny, but its charming host Haydar Sarigul and cosy rooftop terrace-bar in the shadow of the Blue Mosque make it a popular choice...
Worth considering for its comfortable bunk beds (all with lockers underneath) and clean, modern bathrooms. Drawbacks: an inadequate number of showers and toilets and a lack of natural light in the basement dorms.
Sokullu Pasa Hotel
Sokullu Pasa Hotel has luxury accommodation with free Wi-Fi and a restaurant serving Turkish specialties. Facilities include a tour desk. The Hippodrome is only 500 metres away. The air-conditioned rooms of Sokullu Pasa have an elegant interior...

Ayasofya Hotel Old City
This private Ottoman house is quietly situated in a cobblestone street, just a 7-minute walk from Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The hotel’s bar terrace overlooks the Marmara Sea...
