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

I was pleasantly surprised that the staff spoke English. The staff are very helpful and nice. They went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. The breakfast is better than most of the 5 star hotels I've visited. Great location. Lovely helpful staff and good food (2 thumps up)

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
