A five-star Istanbul hotel with its own museum collection, perfectly located in the historic district

The Lowdown

Located on the site of Istanbul’s Great Palace, in the city’s historic Sultanahmet area, Eresin Crown Hotel gives you a fascinating insight into Turkey’s history without you even having to set foot outside the front door. Housing a private museum featuring pieces from the Byzantine, Roman and Hellenistic eras, this boutique museum hotel is beautifully adorned with eye-catching art and artifacts.
However, you surely will want to venture into this fascinating city, and when you do, this five-star hotel’s prime location makes it easy to see the sights. The Underground Cisterns, St. Irene, St Sophia and Topkapi Palace are all easily walkable, at less than a mile away, while The Blue Mosque is also an easy reach.
Despite its history-rich nature and historic-district locale, the hotel is packed with modern luxuries. Rooms come with Jacuzzi tubs, Wi-Fi and international satellite channels, while double-glazing keeps the hum of the city at bay. The stylish Mosaic restaurant serves delicious Turkish and international dishes, with a choice of the elegant interiors or views from the terrace as your backdrop. And after a day’s exploring, you can enjoy a glass of Anatolian wine in the opulent Column Bar.


 Superior rooms are elegantly furnished, featuring neutral walls and parquet flooring. Take some time out in your room, making the most of the Wi-Fi, international satellite channels and multi-video and music systems. The Jacuzzi bath and high-end toiletries in the bathroom up the luxe factor.


Mosaic Restaurant serves international options to suit just about everyone, as well as delicious Turkish specialties. For al-fresco dining, the terrace offers views over the Marmara Sea and mesmerizing minarets of the Blue Mosque.


Located on the site of Istanbul’s Great Palace, in the city’s historic Sultanahmet area, the hotel couldn’t be better situated for sightseeing. Within a mile of the front door, you’ll find St. Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Underground Cisterns, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. Venture slightly further afield to discover the Egyptian Spice Bazaar, the Textile Center Beyazit and Taksim Square.

Stayed here for 3 nights in June. Perfect location for visiting the famous Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and other sites. Walking distance to a lot of great restaurants, although a bit touristy, but still good. Staff here were so friendly and helpful. Had a problem with checking in for a flight and front desk staff extremely helpful. Great view from bar located on upper level. Excellent breakfast with a superb variety. Water always provided in the room. Good internet speed. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Top location, with so much to do within a very short walk of this hotel, with a lovely view from the room of the Blue Mosque and the river to the other direction (and from the roof terrace also). The staff are very welcoming and helpful, even lending us a Metro Card for our stay - made getting around Istanbul so easy on the trams, train and ferries.

This hotel was perfect for viewing the big three sights in Istanbul. The Blue Mosque was 400 yards away, with the Hippodrome and Hagia Sophia nearby. The rooms were clean and well appointed and Wi-Fi was free. The staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us advice on restaurants to go to and even lent us a card to use on the metro( well worth using because it was cheap and avoided the traffic jams). My only disappointment was the restaurant. We ate in the first night and the choice was a bit basic. Other than that I thought the hotel and its staff were excellent.
