Saruhan is a lovely, peaceful hotel which is a nice escape from the main tourist drag. We were not disturbed by noise other than the sea birds and calls to prayer. Rooms on either sea side or town side are nice, and don't worry which you have as the roof top (breakfast) has a great view of both. Rooms are... More

Excellent budget-saver. Upper floors have excellent views of Bosporus (in front) or "exotic" Istanbul rooftop neighborhood to the back. Located 3 minutes walk from "Little Sophia" Mosque. And about 15 minutes' walk up the hill to all the famous spots. Great local restaurants, cafes, shops all within very short walks. Mornings the place puts out a great, huge breakfast served... More

I don't believe that the Hotel Saruhan really needs another raving review, but here goes. We stayed a week. felt like we were finally home after some travel in the EU. The beds were not great, the bathrooms and the rooms were. We stayed in two rooms during our visit. Both large, the second one a seperate suite from the... More

Our stay here was an amazing experience. From the first moment I felt I came to a welcoming, amazing place where everyone is friendly and tries to accommodate my family the best possible way. Hotel is in a quiet, old neighborhood in Old Town - Sultanahmet district, minutes away from the Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), Hagia Sofya Museum, Topkapi Palace,... More

What a joy it was to stay at this small family run hotel, great sized room, comfortable beds. Great central heating (It was a bit chilly in Jan) We were initially there for 2 nights before going on a brilliant 9 day tour that was organised by Melahat of Shashot travel, a sister company to Saruhan. We returned to the... More

We stayed at the Saruhan Hotel in Istanbul in August, 2014 and I still enjoy thinking about the gracious hospitality we enjoyed there. (It is now January.) The location was optimal - we were right in the touristic area and everything was closeby - a charming walk away. Our room was comfortable and there was a delightful breakfast served on... More

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
