Accessible Hotels in Istanbul

Finding handicapped accessible hotels in Istanbul is far more difficult than in most European destinations. While we were performing accessibility research in Istanbul, we had to travel all over the city to find the handful of accessible hotels listed below.

Many websites like and list dozens of handicapped accessible hotels in Istanbul. When we visited them, at least 70% had doors that were too narrow for a wheelchair, ramps that were too steep for wheelchair users to get up, or no ramp at all.

The hotels that we recommend all meet basic accessibility standards. There is a step-free entrance to the hotel and the doors are wide enough for wheelchairs. A few have roll-in showers. Almost all of them are located in flat neighborhoods.

The hotels we list below are a part of our Istanbul Accessible Travel Packages which provide you with everything you need to visit Istanbul with a disability. Our expert accessibility advice, accessible taxis, and accessible tours will make your trip to Istanbul the trip of a lifetime.

“We can only describe the Hotel as wonderful, and as a bonus it is set in the heart of the old city and just a gentle 600 metres walk up to the main historical sites of Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and the Hippodrome. A convenient tram stop is literally just around the corner to provide access to the waterfront on the Golden Horn and the rest of the city. From the moment we arrived the level of service and courtesy of the management and staff was outstanding. The room was immaculate and was enhanced by a range of lighting including a rope light under the bed!” – Rob Brooks
