Sultanahmet. Clean. Toiletries, tea/coffee plentiful; substantial breakfast. Pleasant staff. Great view of Marmara from restaurant right on top, which has excellent food and is open all day (closes at 11 at night). Minibar stocked. within walking distance of Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi, Cistern and tram lines. In spite of Ramazan, the place was quiet, even after Iftar (breaking of... More

It's difficult to give this hotel any more than 2 out of 5 due to several reasons. We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014 and paid £82 per night for the privilege. Pros: Service from staff was very good. They were helpful, attentive and some spoke very good English like the guest relation staff member. Nothing was too... More

Fantastic location right in the heart of things, literally a few hundred meters to all the main attractions. The hotel staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms are small, however, they are spotlessly clean and more than adequate for a city break. We stayed for my wife's 40th birthday and was offered an upgraded room... More

I stayed with my two siblings in the junior suite on the second floor, although it said a "sea view" we didn't get one which was disheartening but the room was lovely and it paid off. The staff were amazing, really helpful with the best ways to get around and what places to visit. Location was perfect too, a 3-4... More

We stayed at the hotel for a weekend break and found it perfectly located for the main attractions in the old city in Istanbul, just minutes walk from the Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and many other attractions. The breakfast buffet was extensive and the bread to die for. The staff were very helpful. When we arrived our room... More

If you are in Istanbul for a few days, intending to see Topkapi, the Mosques and Grand Bazaar, then you really couldn't do better. It's really close to all of these, in a safe area, surrounded by many good eateries. The hotel also arranged for us to be collected from the airport. The rooms are quite small though, as others...

The hotel was a good stay. Location was very good regarding it's distance to the main attractions of the old city, Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, Sophia Hagia, cistern basilliica etc.... Are all walking distance. The hotel rooms are not that big but I think that is to do with old city itself as they can't make much changes to hotels... More

We thought this would be a fantastic Hotel, according to location and appearance in the web site. Big mistake. Location is good: in the middle of a live street with plenty of restaurants and bars. The flip side: difficult to sleep at night due to the noise from those places. We had a big issue with the reception due to... More

Kadir manages the best spa. small, intimate with easy access to shops and restaurants. Value for money packages, suiting everybody. I was impressed by the services level. Very clean Spa, great hamam. On this occasion I did not stay at the hotel.

We went in a large group thinking it would be a comfortable experience as per reviews but were shocked to see the condition of the rooms. Whatever you do, never ever take the 01 and 02 series of rooms. We were given the most horrible room 402 inspite of paying for standard sea view. It just looked like a dormatory,... More
