The KAFTAN Hotel is a boutique Hotel, located in the heart of Istanbul ; Sultanahmet Area which is known as "OLD CITY" The Sultanahmet district is the heart of historic Old Istanbul, what 19th-century travelers used to call "Stamboul." This is where you'll find Topkapi Palace, Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia), the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii), the Byzantine Hippodrome, Yerebatan Saray (Sunken Palace Cistern), the Istanbul Archaeological Museums, Great Palace Mosaic Museum, and several lesser sights (see map below). It's your best base for sightseeing in Istanbul. For a rundown on things to see, go to Istanbul Sights. Luckily for our visitors, the district of Sultanahmet (sool-tahn-ah-MEHT, named for Sultan Ahmet I, builder of the Blue Mosque) also has a number of serviceable restaurants and dozens of good stores in all price ranges. Blue Mosque Istanbul's imperial Mosque of Sultan Ahmet I (Sultan Ahmet Camii) is called the Blue Mosque because of its interior tiles, mostly on the upper level and difficult to see unless you're right up there with them. Forget the blue tiles! The mosque (built 1603-17) is the masterwork of Ottoman architect Sedefkâr Mehmet Aga. It's built on the site of the Great Palace of Byzantium, on the southeastern side of the Hippodrome. With its six minarets and a great cascade of domes, the mosque is a worthy sibling to Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia) just a few minutes' stroll to the north. The Blue Mosque has fascinating secrets revealed in my travel memoir, Bright Sun, Strong Tea, and on the Magic of the Blue Mosque page. This is one of Istanbul's premier sights, and you're welcome to visit at most times of day, for free... - Blue Mosque 2 minutes by foot. - Hagia Sophia 3 minutes by foot. - Topkapi Palace 4 minutes by foot. - Underground Cistern 3 minutes by foot. - Grand Bazaar 5 minutes by foot. - Archeological Museum 5 minutes by foot. - Anatolian Civilisation Museum 5 minutes by foot. - Spice Bazaar 20 minutes by foot. - Suleymaniye Mosque 15 minutes by foot. - Dolmabahce Palace 15 minutes by TRAMWAY. - CNR Exhibition Center 25 minutes by car. - TUYAP Exhibition Center 40 minutes by car. - Abdi Ipekci Arena 15 minutes by car. - Tramcar Station 5 minutes by foot. - Seabus Station 15 minutes by foot. - Bosphorus Ferry Station 15 minutes by foot. - Ataturk International Airport 25 minutes by car. - Istanbul Modern Arts Museum 15 minutes by car.
