About Sultanahmet

Sultanahmet is known as the “old city” for good reason. When building the subway station in 2004, workers uncovered archaeological artifacts from about 8,000 years ago, making the city one of the oldest in the world. And because of this, the area is one of the most historic places in Turkey with many ancient ruins, mosques, tombs, and palaces. You’ll also find many of the country’s museums and monuments in Sultanahmet tucked in between the more modern eateries, shops, and pubs. 

The architecture alone in this community makes it the perfect place for selfies and photos to share on your favorite social media sites. Because this is a tourist attraction, it does get crowded during certain times of the year so plan accordingly. However, with so much to see and do, you should not have any trouble getting in and out of the places you want to visit. 

Surrounded by water on three sides, including the Golden Horn, which is a major waterway in Istanbul, there is always a beautiful sunset to be seen in the evening. When paired with the beauty of the old walls and monuments, this is probably the most attractive place in the country. And it does not hurt that they have a plethora of souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, and malls to entertain you. There are plenty of parks to enjoy here as well with lush greenery and vibrant flowers. 

Fun Fact: The Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque) was named after Sultan Ahmet, who built a place of worship to vie with the Hagia Sophia.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
