This wonderful little very clean, comfortable hotel is in a wonderful neighbourhood of old wooden houses, a very nice park. And decent restaurants nearby, the sea only 5 minutes away, the Blue Mosque only 15 minutes away. The Saruhan is a sanctuary , a real home away from home. Safe streets with no pesky carpet salesmen, just folks living their... More

Clean hotel. Nothing fancy - you need a bed, a shower and breakfast and that is what you get. Getting a room at the backside is recommended if you want to sleep calmly. However our room could have done with a chair to sit in. Breakfast on the terrace is great. Extensive, and managed by a lady with the sweetest... More

We did enjoy our stay of six nights on our first visit to Istanbul. There is a noticeable and welcome attention to detail in the services in the room and at breakfast. The space in the bedroom was good for a big city; the shower and water pressure kept us happy; the WC was a bit cramped. Harun at reception... More

Very comfortable rooms, the size of the bathroom was a nice surprise. Everything was clean! Cheap drinks in the minibar. Breakfast was okay and enough choice, although it wasn’t really my taste. The location of the hotel was a big plus! Friendly receptionists. I recommend!

Hotel rooms were very clean as well as the bathrooms. Breakfast on the roof with views of the water was perfect, also plenty of food. Reception was very informative and offered assistance whenever needed. Left my ipad charger in the room when I left and when contacted by email responded very quick even with a photo of the charger to... More

We spent four nights here this month. Their highly recommended sister hotel was full so we accepted this alternative. It's a very convenient location in a typical residential area of the city somewhat less touristy than others. Plenty of interesting local restaurants in the neighborhood. It's a ten minute walk to Sultanahmet area. It's steeply downhill from the tram through... More

Small, family hotel situated at 10mn by foot from Blue Mosque, with beautiful view of the Bosphorus from the 4th floor terrace, where breakfast was served, and where we were allowed to pick-nick in the evening. Very friendly staff, nice size rooms and bathrooms. Aircon a bit too cold, but we managed to fix it to suit us, after a... More

We booked a triple room for 2 nights. Clean and pleasant. Great basic accommodation if you're planning on spending most of your time exploring the city. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast on the terrace was great. Once we got our bearings the location is great for exploring the main tourist sites in Sultanahmet.

We stayed 5 nights in this hotel with friends and family. The staff was kind and helpful. Self service breakfast was amazing with a wide variety of jams, yogurt, salads, fruits and bread. Starting the day in the roof-top terrace was really nice. We also found the location very convenient for visiting the city. Overall, a great value hotel.

Great location in a predominantly residential neighborhood yet short walking distance to all of the key sights in Old Istanbul. The premises were clean, the staff was great and always accommodating and the breakfast was supper. I love the roof top deck.
