Located in the Old City of Istanbul, this hotel is within walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Best Point Hotel Old City offers air-conditioned rooms. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel.
We booked here a one night stay at the end of February 2020, during a layover flight from Tbilisi via Istanbul to Riga. We booked a family room which included a really comfy bed (s) and even a private hammam (Turkish sauna).
Our price about $95 per one-night stay (additionally we paid about $90 for a transfer back and forth from Istanbul airport, transfer was organized with the help of hotel).
We like travel to Turkey and Istanbul in particular, when we do we look for a stay in Sultanahmet area. Besides Best Point hotel I could also recomend Dosso Dossi Istanbul Old City Hotel in which we have stayed in the past, or alternatively see Top 20 5-star hotels in Istanbul, Turkey
