Not too much to say. It was a nice hotel, within walking distance of the main attractions, and had high ceilings and functioning WiFi. Breakfast (included) was at the restaurant at the front of the hotel and the wait staff was very attentive. On the first morning, I ordered a second black coffee after the first which seemed to take... More

Well located just minutes walk to Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace and on a street full of bars and restaurants, something to suit everyone. We were upgraded to fabulous room, very large and comfortable, and found the staff to be unfailingly helpful, polite and welcoming. Gave us great recommendations for where to eat as well as arranging a guide for... More

This is a basic hotel with good standards. The rooms are an OK size,clean and well serviced. The plumbing is when next door is showering. If you like a soft bed it isn't the place for you, but we were ok. The breakfast is good, but food not great in evening, mind you finding good food in istanbul isn't easy.

Especially Canberk. He was helping me a lot (over mails ) even before I reached Istanbul. And not to miss out Gorkem as well. I know... More

There is an elevator! And the room and bathroom are large by Istanbul standards or average by American standards. It is conveniently located on a vibrant and touristy restaurant row within a 5 minute walk uphill going towards the Blue Mosque. Even though it can be loud in the evenings the rooms are located on the side away from the... More

Senatus hotel Good hotel, but with a couple of flaws My husband and I stayed here for six nights in early September when we visited Istanbul. Senatus is a pretty good choice. Its location in Sultanahmet - just a block from the Blue Mosque and the Agia Sophia - makes it an ideal base for exploring, most of which you... More

The hotel is a small charming boutique hotel - very central in Sultanahmet, you can reach everything easily by walking. The hotel is very nice and clean, Breakfast is average., but maybe because I am a foodie, regardless even as a vegetarian you will have choices. The whole staff and the service are excellent and beyond words. Its like you... More
