Friendly staff and a very good, very genuine home-style Turkish breakfast with excellent fresh coffee collude with an exceptional location just meters aways from Hagia Sophia and the Cisterns for what could ... or should be an exceptional small hotel. I stayed at the Han Hotel for 10 days about 2 years earlier and enjoyed this great, cosy spot in... More

I stayed at Hotel Han for a week and I really cannot say enough great things about my stay there. I chose this hotel bc of the location is within a short walking distance to shopping and historic sites. The street is calm and restricted to local traffic so you do not have to worry about traffic keeping you awake... More

Room are mostly small but enough to stay comfortable. WC and bath with all facilities are clean and warm. Rooms cleaned every day with total change... More

I have a very mixed filings about our stay. First thing I need to say that the location is outstanding and stuff is great. In the very hear of Sultanahmet, less than 5 minutes to the trolley and major attractions. I felt really safe coming back home late at night. The hotel has an excellent restaurant on the first floor.... More

The location, the beautiful staff and the atmosphere of the hotel made our stay quite extraordinary. The caring and sympathetic staff helped us right from the beginning in the task of finding the island Grandmother had been as a young woman in 1905.

The twin room we had was smaller than expected but the hotel is in such a great location so we barely spent any time there and it met our needs. Clean and nice decor, also a fridge in the room. Breakfast was lovely and a good spread, we did not need lunch! (Maybe just a mid-afternoon Turkish pastry!). There is... More

First of all, this is the smallest room I've ever stayed in, at a hotel. Despite that, there's still a good touch to it. Clean room, good people, great location...breakfast dish is mad boring, same plate of food every morning. Pretty central spot within Sultanahmet, which makes it ideal for those that want to easily access most parts of the... More

The room was dirty and had an odor. I even had a smelly cat in my room. Although the staff had taken it out, the smell remained. The mini-bar was empty. The staff was completely unfriendly and in the end, I had my money stolen.

We put up several guests here for our wedding in Istanbul. They all said they had a great time and especially appreciated the service/help from the staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is excellent. Middle of Sultan Ahmet region with a short walk from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and all the other great sites.
