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

We had a fantastic stay at the Senatus hotel in the amazing city Istanbul for about a week at the end of September and are still talking about it! To start with, it's at a great location. It's on a lively street filled with cafes and restaurants in the old town, and the top touristic sites of Istanbul are all... More

First time in Turkey and Im really glad that I chose Senatus. The entire staff are very courteous and helpful. Advised on the perfect hotspots in Istanbul. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Perfect location away for the city noise and very accessible to many of the historical sites. Highly recommended to stay and will surely choose Senatus if ever... More

This hotel made us feel at home so far away from home! They were so good to us and we didn't have the opportunity to say goodbye and thank you to them because we were rushing off to catch our cruise! They even helped us pack!!! If I go back to turkey I will absolutely revisit this hotel. I'd like... More

We had a very happy week at the Senatus hotel. We wanted a hotel that was within easy reach of the sights in the old centre of Istanbul, and the Senatus was ideal, as it was only 10 minutes' walk to the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sopia and Topkapi Palace. We visited all these and a lot more, as... More

Not too much to say. It was a nice hotel, within walking distance of the main attractions, and had high ceilings and functioning WiFi. Breakfast (included) was at the restaurant at the front of the hotel and the wait staff was very attentive. On the first morning, I ordered a second black coffee after the first which seemed to take... More

Well located just minutes walk to Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace and on a street full of bars and restaurants, something to suit everyone. We were upgraded to fabulous room, very large and comfortable, and found the staff to be unfailingly helpful, polite and welcoming. Gave us great recommendations for where to eat as well as arranging a guide for... More

This is a basic hotel with good standards. The rooms are an OK size,clean and well serviced. The plumbing is when next door is showering. If you like a soft bed it isn't the place for you, but we were ok. The breakfast is good, but food not great in evening, mind you finding good food in istanbul isn't easy.

I chose this hotel based on the review in TripAdvisor and Booking.com. This was a perfect choice for my trip. Excellent hotel. The room was clean and nice looking. The staff are simply superb. Especially Canberk. He was helping me a lot (over mails ) even before I reached Istanbul. And not to miss out Gorkem as well. I know... More

There is an elevator! And the room and bathroom are large by Istanbul standards or average by American standards. It is conveniently located on a vibrant and touristy restaurant row within a 5 minute walk uphill going towards the Blue Mosque. Even though it can be loud in the evenings the rooms are located on the side away from the... More
