Hotel Megara Palace Old-City - Istanbul

3 star Hotel Istanbul

Ishakpasa Cad No 8 - Istanbul

Price starting from TRY 226 .62

A top location! You won't find a better place to experience one of the most impressive sights in Turkey, when you book into this distinguished 3 star hotel next to the Topkapi Palace. The Hotel Megara Palace is just footsteps from the main walls, and the entrance is only 250 metres (273 yards) away. It is hardly surprising that this affordable Istanbul Sultanahmet hotel attracts visitors who appreciate a great location coupled with superior standards of hospitality.

The Megarara Palace hotel sits on a street which runs downhill alongside the Topkapi Palace - home to Ottoman sultans for nearly 400 years - before reaching the shore of the Marmara Sea, and treating you to fabulous views of the Bosphorous along the way. Numerous other attractions are within walking distance in Turkey's most cosmopolitan city, including the famous Sultanahmet Square in the heart of historic Old Istanbul. Here you can find the breathtakingly beautiful Blue Mosque, the Byzantine Hippodrome, and the impressive Istanbul Archeological Museums. Restaurants galore await you, along with the chance to enjoy the rich, colourful cuisine which Turkey has at the heart of its community.

If you are looking for a feast for your eyes as well as your appetite, head to the authentic cafés of the Grand Bazaar, followed by a shopping extravaganza. This is one of the world's largest covered markets, with over 4400 shops, 64 streets and 22 gates, and offers a dizzying choice of bargains, including jewellery, silk carpets, leather coats and fake brand t-shirts! Why not take back some spices from the Egyptian Bazaar to put some heat into your cooking back home? After all that footwork and haggling, you will surely be in need of a little relaxation. Turkey is famous for its traditional Hammam, which are a social custom as much as anything. In Istanbul you will find several historical Turkish Baths near to the Istanbul Megara Palace Hotel.

Airport transfers available for a stress-free journey! Offering expertise, enthusiasm and a genuine desire to create the ideal environment for travellers, staff at this hotel near the Hagia Sophia are delighted to attend to your needs with service 24-hours a day. Don't stress about your arrival either. The team can arrange for you to be collected from Ataturk International Airport less than half an hour away, as well as from many other destinations - so please feel free to ask! The Sultanahmet Hotel Megara Palace is everything you could want from an Istanbul competitively priced lodging, which combines quality with a prime position.

Magnificent rooftop views! Whether you are enjoying a fresh lunchtime salad or an evening feast of national specialities, you won't find a better accompaniment to your meal than the spectacular views from the rooftop restaurant. Satisfy your culinary curiosity with a variety of delicious cheeses, smoked fish, meat dishes, and Turkish and Mediterrenean mezes. The sunny open-air terrace overlooks the glittering Bosphorous and the Topkapi Palace, and is a wonderful spot sure to enhance any dining occasion - especially washed down with a fine wine from the wine list, for the perfect end to the perfect day!
