The hotel is very close to all the main sights. The street it is on contains many restaurants but even so is not particularly busy or noisy; and our rooms had good double glazing which kept out any noise at night. They also had good air conditioning and were very comfortable despite the heat. There was a generous and wide-ranging... More

Very helpful staff, even when we checked in past midnight due to probs with flights. Varied and delicious breakfast bouffet. Located in a lively but not particularly noisy street within minutes of Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Arras Bazar

Location was ideal. I think any hotel in Sultanhamet is a 5 minute walk from the major tourist spot, Byzantium wasn’t any different. We got an amazing offer on Booking.com for 2 nights in a Junior suite facing the sea. Room was quite big and well furnished. In fact, one of the shopkeepers nearby was telling us Byzantium has the...

Stayed two nights prior to cruise, upgraded to a suite, can't fault the breakfast a great selection hot and cold. Fantastic roof terrace with views over the bospherus. Would definitely stay again due to location only 5 minutes from the major sites.

I stayed in a room facing the street - the appointments were quite nice, bed was comfy - but even with the air conditioner turned on, it was not enough to keep up with the heat generated by the sun and the mini-fridge in the room. We had to keep the windows wide open to make it tolerable. Also, while... More

I went on a bargain price trip with British Airways for a long weekend. The staff at the hotel were great and breakfast was more than enough. Do go to the roof top terrace with views of the Blue Mosque, the Aya Sophia and the Sea of Marmora. Topkapi is in walking distance and there are lots of bars nearby.... More

The staffs are helpful. Location is great in walking distant to most landmarks. Stayed there for 2 nights. They gave me a quiet room facing the seaview. First night was still relatively quiet, but the second night can hear very loud noise of other AC when I keep the window opened.The breakfast has wide selection. Weak Wifi signal, small room...
