I stayed at Senatus Hotel a couple of weeks ago with my partner, we couldn't have been happier with our getaway. The hotel is located in the old city, just minutes away from the main attractions. The reception staff at the hotel couldn't be more helpful in organising a private guide to show us around the city on our first... More

Across the street from the Best Western Acropol where we stayed our first night in Istanbul is this sister property. It's a 22 room boutique property. We moved at the request of the hotel and as I'm a travel agent I accepted the change so I could experience a second property. Where the Best Western is traditional this property is... More

We had a marvelous stay in Turkey at Senatus Hotel. Wonderful interiors, very good service and some excellent dining too, must recommend the hotel's Esenin Restaurant for the blini and caviar and some exquisite salmon dishes. Very reasonably priced too for a luxury hotel. Hope to see and check in again here next time!

The rooms in the hotel are very, very small. And wifi does not work all the time. Very unreliable. The bottom floor is the basement and has no windows. You'll feel trapped. We requested ahead of time to be on the same floor as the friends we were traveling with, and they had said it would be possible, but when... More

Most ambient and pleasant street in Sultanahmed and very close to most historical monuments: Topkapi palace, aya sofia, The blue mosque, Citern..etc. Also, metro is nearby to reach to taksim and the European side of Istanbul...

Second time around staying here and absolutely loved it! Very clean and amazing service. The staff members are easy to talk to, funny and informative. The hotel is located at a great location…literally neighbours with Ayasofya, Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque. The only down side was it was sad to leave.

Where to begin... When me and my husband booked our hotel room for 4 nights in Istanbul, we were not sure if we made the best decision as there are lots of hotels in Istanbul by sultanahmet. When we arrived to Senatus Hotel, we felt lucky as it turned out to be what we expected:) the staff greeted us and... More

Istanbul was the last stop on honeymoon after Athens and Santorini and we definitely saved the best for last! Upon our arrival at the Senatus Hotel, the staff immediately greeted us in a welcoming manner and offered us beverages. They assisted us immediately with planning our few days by setting us up with a private tour guide and a Bosphorus... More
