The location was amazing, just one step outside the door and wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, shops, bazar and historical attractions within walking distance. The hotel was clean and the service was top and the staff was very kind and helpful. The breakfast was a bit poor. Overall we had an amazing stay!

I stayed here for one night when i visited istanbul for 2 days, it is a 5 minute walk to all the main attractions. The hotel is very cheap to stay in, but that does not make a difference to the service and quality. The quality is amazing, i stayed in royal alhambra palace in antalya the days before i... More

Friendly stuff, good (free) breakfast and a nice, safe area. This hotel is walking distance (five minute) to most of the major sites in Sultanahmet. It was a good choice and I'll advise you to stay there when you are in the amazing Istanbul.

From the moment you check in and until you check out, the team at Senatus really does their job in making your stay with them as comfortable and perfect as possible. Breakfast has a wide selection of food and the food at their restaurant is fantastic. Bedrooms are clean and spotless. My husband and I were fortunate to have our... More

Senatus is walking distance to most of the major sites in Sultanahmet. Staff is friendly and breakfast and wifi are included, which is definitely a plus. However, the hotel desperately needs soundproofing. On more than one occasion I woke up in the middle of the night due to people speaking or moving about inside the hotel, and I am not... More

In and of itself, there was nothing wrong with this hotel. The rooms are clean and nice; the view of the old wall is interesting; breakfast was good. But it somehow lacked any character or charm. I could have done without the hard sell when we arrived, trying to persuade us to book personal guides as "the queues were so... More

We had a round trip ticket from NY to Istanbul and a few days booked, out of a 2.5 week vacation, at Hotel Senatus. Once in Istanbul, post jet lag, we'd start looking for a place for a longer period. That never happened. We stayed there for the entire first week in Istanbul. The staff was wonderful and incredibly helpful... More
