Hotel is very close to Sultan Ahmet (Topkapi, Yerebatan Sarnici, Aya Sofya and many more) which is a great advantage. The room is normally quiet and clean. The shower, the most important part of a hotel, is very clean and nice. Television is limited to turkish broadcast. The breakfast is normal. The staff is very friendly, but Canberk is superb....

Senatus is right at the heart of the beautiful historic part of istanbul, just a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, buzzing restaurants and bazaars. We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay with great service. The hotel's restaurant is also definitely worth trying! We would also like to say a big thankyou to the guys at reception for helping...

My friend and I have both traveled extensively and took a lot of time to review hotels prior to booking. We love to get a good deal for our value and that we did. The Senatus is a small boutique hotel. The rooms are extremely clean and modern; we were even upgraded without even asking. I'm extremely picky with cleanliness... More

On arriving we found out our reservation had a problem (I had booked 3 nights in June instead of July by mistake). The manager, Çan, solved it right away and he even sent us to a superior room, with a view to the lovely street and every amenity you can need. The hotel is located few meters away from all... More

I showed up at 9:30 am to see if the hotel would hold my luggage until check in time, but they had a room available and let me have it right away for no extra fee! The staff were extremely friendly and answered all my questions about airport transfers and anything else I needed. I also had dinner at their... More

The room was stunning and looked so new. It was spacious and even had a lounge for extra space. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and I had the best nights sleep. Location wise, it is fantastic for getting to all of the main tourist spots, and the street that the hotel is on is lined with restaurants so... More

We stayed our first 3 days in the Double Tree as a safe option. We wanted to see the boutique hotels first hand before committing to one. Once we visited Senatus in person booking the last nights of our stay was a no-brainer. The hotel is located near all the main sights and restaurants. The rooms are not small like... More
