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.

Meet Istanbul and be awed by her jewels, attitude and food. Energy pulsates through her veins and along her arteries run modern trams and traditional wooden carts. She speaks a thousand languages and loves cats.

We had already stayed at the sister hotel, the Marmara in Sultanahmet. The huge self-service breakfasts at both are fabulous - notably the choices of home-made jam - but the Saruhan's was the best. This hotel is a little further out of Sultanahmet, in a more residential district, with great architecture - near the Kucuk Aya Sophia - and the... More

The staff speaks excellent English and is incredibly helpful. My room was truly lovely with a little balcony. I came in one afternoon and 2 doves were sitting on the railing. Breakfast is on the roof terrace with a view of the Sea of Marmara. The hotel is located in a charming old neighborhood but easy walking distance to the... More

This is a small simple place, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast is served on a roof top terrace that provides views to the Bosphorus, whilst basic it is tasty and better than many other place we have encountered whilst in Turkey
