The staff were helpful although our breakfast lady seemed to be coughing... More

Stayed for two nights and was very pleased. Location is great and the ocean view from our room was spectacular. There is a spacious roof terrace too that nobody was using and you can have a wine watching over the city at night. The room was a bit small but very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast buffet is very... More

Stayed at the Saba Sultan for six nights, booked thru Expedia. Had two rooms, and a baby crib was provided for free. No problems were encountered at check-in or check-out. Its a small hotel, less than 20 rooms, more like a bed n breakfast. Rooms were comfortable, with free wifi, minibar, fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, and a tiny balcony overlooking... More

Booked this hotel through lastminute.com and chose it from Trip Advisor reviews. Great location in Sultanahmet (the old town). Walking distance to Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque) and just a minute from Akbiyik Street which is the 'main drag' in this area with lots of restaurants and bars. The hotel is small (boutique type) and clean, with... More

This hotel is located in the immediate vicinity of Hagia Sophia. From the balcony you have a beautiful view over Sultanahmet. The rooms have a wooden floor and everything is clean and new. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I can really recommend this place!
