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!

We spent 4 nights at Saba Sultan and really enjoyed it! The breakfast was good, the staff really nice, the rooms are beautiful, very clean and with fantastic view. Great roof-terrace. Many restaurants/pubs in walking distance. Highly recommendable!

We are just back from the Saba Sultan, and on the whole, would recommend it for its location, amazing roof terrace views and the lovely Ramazan on reception. We would not however recommend it for its breakfast. I think they should just stick with the buffet which was OK, rather that offer "omelettes" which were a one egg concoction made... More

Location was great - Blue Mosque, AyaSofia, Little Sofia, Topkapi Museum and the tram station are walkable. Lots of restaurants in Akbiyik Caddesi that are two streets away. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff were great - especially Tuba and Yunus who were very friendly and helpful. Tea and cakes were served in the afternoon. There was a... More

This was my second time in Istanbul. Last time I went to Istanbul I had booked Hilton Hotel - though it was a very good and truly 5 star hotel, but way too crowded and noisy for my liking. It was like visiting a mall every time I was in Hotel and getting breakfast in the morning was more like... More

We really had a lovely stay at the Saba Sultan Hotel. The hotel is near the Sultan Ahmet square and there are a bunch of great restaurants near the hotel. The hotel is clean and the breakfast is great. The employees are really helpful and nice. It was a great time!

My mom and I traveled to Istanbul in May and stayed five nights at the Saba Sultan. Although the cab driver had a hard time finding the place, it was in a great location with many restaurants on the next streets and just a few more blocks to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The Golden Horn and Bosporus were... More

We recommend this small hotel in touristy Sultanahmet for its perfect location, nice and clean rooms, generous breakfast and coffee break and lovely staff (special thanks to the young woman at the reception). Backyard rooms also have a nice view on the Bosphore.

This location was great right by old town and within walking distance of many historic sights. Many great restaurants within walking distance. The staff of this hotel was great and very helpful with all needs. The room had a great view of the Bosphorus. The room itself was very nice and recently renovated. They put on an amazing breakfast spread.... More
