After researching Istanbul I came across a small boutique hotel which is a stone throw away from all things amazing! The hotel is located a street away from the Blue mosque and you can find Sultan Ahmet palace at the bottom of the street! The staff are sooo friendly and very helpful! Major plus was that they spoke English and... More

As a frequent traveler, I've stayed in many hotels in various different cities across the world. Senatus is by far my top favorite hotel. Affordable, EXTREMELY clean, perfect location and friendly, helpful staff. I will recommend Senatus to anyone and everyone. No matter if you are traveling on a budget, or looking for luxury, Senatus offers it all.

We stayed at Senatus Hotel for a long weekend and it was the perfect choice. This modern and clean Hotel is situated right in the Old City in Akbiybik Street which is buzzing with bars and people and just a minute from the must-see sights. Still, it is quiet at night! The staff was very friendly and extremely helpfull. Breakfast... More

The location was perfect, within a few minutes walking distance from major tourist spots in the old Sultanahmet (OS) area. One can find enough restaurants, patisseries, etc in the OS area as well. The staff was very courteous and helpful and gave a few good travel suggestions. However, I would suggest travelers to ultimately take an independent decision as the... More

I'm an international flight attendant so have seen countless hotels around the world! This genuinely was one of the best! It's small & quaint but everything you would possibly want or need in the heart of Istanbul! The staff are fabulous! Canberk especially, went OUT of his way to make our stay perfect & even improved our own plans by... More

I was so impressed immediately buy this hotel, the staff were magnificent especially the manager Canberk. He was so helpful, welcoming & just overall a godsend! If I was to come back to turkey again this will be my choice of hotel. I loved the location, nice and close to everything important. Take me back to turkey!

Have just had a great stay in the Senatus Hotel and would highly recommend it. A superb location, nice rooms, spotlessly clean and staff who did everything they could to make sure we had an enjoyable stay.

We stayed at this little family hotel in early May 2014 for 4 nights. It was clean, quiet, friendly and homely. Wonderful breakfasts. Pity about the weather but there wasn't much they could do about that!

I booked this based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel is in a perfect location, just five mins walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern, etc. Our room was on the first floor at the back and was extremely clean, spacious and quiet. Air conditioning, new furniture, nice tv, shower but no bath. The... More
