If you like your space and prefer to self-cater on vacation, then book into Topkapi Apartments, near the Blue Mosque.
This gorgeous four-story Turkish home is owned by husband and wife Hamza and Yukiko and has one large unit per floor with a bedroom, seating area, and kitchenette. Free Wi-Fi and air-conditioning are also provided throughout, making it an ideal home away from home for couples and families.
Do as the locals do and shop at the Wednesday market in Sultanahmet right near the apartment. Buy crispy fresh vegetable and farm-to-table produce to cook at home and consume on the rooftop terrace with views over Sultanahmet and the Marmara Sea.
Apartment prices are possibly the best value accommodation in Sultanahmet for size and location.
