Having stayed in other guest houses in Istanbul, this guest house stood out in many ways. It did not feel like a hotel, but more of a home-stay. Upon arrival, the host took extra time to welcome us and gave us a list of things to see and places to eat. Our room was very spacious, clean, and elegantly decorated... More

We selected Villa Sphendone for a 4 night stay and we were delighted with our choice. Our room / suite was spacious and comfortable with every amenity found in top quality hotels. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was prepared to order and nothing was too much trouble. All staff were very attentive and... More

I've been lax in entering my reviews from our trip last July. We had a lovely stay at this B&B. While it does appear to be off the beaten path and in a neighborhood rather than a bigger touristy area with large hotels - don't let that fool you about the quality and service. We were traveling as a family... More

Room ambiance was great, but location (downhill) and breakfast options for the price paid were not up to par. Sites were all walking distance and decent options for food and coffee all around. It was hard for taxis to locate, but if you don't mind walking (uphill), then the tram stop was 10 minutes away.

Wonderful hotel situated in Sultanahmet, perfect location close to some of Istanbuls amazing attractions. The hotel rooms are spacious, cozy and beautifully decorated giving a real authentic Turkish feel. The hotel staff are great, very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

We really enjoyed staying this wonderful boutique hotel in Sultanahmet. The rooms are large as is the bathroom. They are clean too. The staff is the highlight here. So helpful with any extra things we needed (we needed a cot and they brought one up) as well as directions and tips to see Istanbul. We actually wanted to stay longer... More

This Hotel is in easy reach of the attractions and places of interest in and around Sultanhamet. It is situated on a quiet little street. The rooms are very nice, with large comfy beds and traditional furniture, and we were able to sit and relax. We stayed here for 4 nights in February. Breakfast was okay, but we got less... More

The room was comfortable but the bathroom smelt disgusting - a damp, mouldy smell which permeated the entire suite. There was mould growing around the bath tub and on the shower curtains. Really unpleasant. Despite complaining, nothing was done to fix it. On a positive note, the staff were very friendly, the bed comfortable and the breakfast was ok. The... More

This little hotel located in the Sultanahmet district of Istanbul is the perfect place to stay- convenient location, yet out of the hustle and bustle that can be overwhelming at times in this great, vast city. The rooms themselves are beautiful, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The staff were genuinely kind, friendly, and very helpful. The breakfast, a traditional Turkish... More

We had a great stay at Villa Sphendone. It is in Sultanahmet but away from the crowds and noise. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. The staff was very helpful and I recommend this small hotel for visitors to Istanbul.
