Very Happy with my Stay here ! A Small, Clean and Comfortable Hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful, they make you feel at home, specifically Abdullah a very enthusiastic person. Breakfast is ok, something they should work on improving. The hotel is walking distance to Blue Mosque, Sofia and other tourist attractions, so a good location.

This is a cute little hotel not far from Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. My iPhone GPS both using Google maps and the iOS map app didn't quite bring me here. The GPS thinks it's around the bend at an empty lot. Keep walking. The staff is quite friendly, welcoming and helpful. The wifi worked well. Breakfast is so... More

Sphendon is a very charming and cozy hotel in the heart of Istanbul - just a few minute walk from the Hagia Sophia or the Blue Mosque. Our cute little room was very clean, the crew changed the towels and cleaned up after us every time we left the hotel. From the very first moment we entered the charming building,... More

We stayed in this hotel March 26th 2015. It has got the best location near the blue mosque and grand bazaar. Walking distance to all attractions. But the best part of the stay was the customer service we received from the manager and staff. They are so friendly and polite. The owner himself even sat down and chatted with us.... More

Stayed there 3 nights and was really satisfied with absolutely everything: rooms are clean, staff is friendly and helpful, breakfast is fine ( buffet style with a variety of olives, fresh veggies, eggs, sausage, bread, pastry, cornflakes, coffee and tea). The room we stayed in was small but very cozy and stylish with a nice bathroom. There is no elevator... More
