I joined Tripadvisor specifically to praise this hotel. I travel over 30% of the year for work and this is one of the best hotels that I've ever stayed in. The rooms are immaculate and the employees went above and beyond my expectations. I arrived to the hotel at 7am and while it was too early for me to check... More

This was our first time in Istanbul, and the staff at this new boutique hotel (less than a year old) welcomed us like family. Our room was one of the "Dominus" rooms, and as such was quite spacious. Bathroom had whirlpool tub. Everything was spotless. Our window opened onto the bustling street below, but when closed couldn't hear a peep!... More

This hotel is practically brand new in 2010. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Rooms are relatively Spartan, not super luxurious, but we don't care because everything is clean, the linens, etc, and room itself are nice (though not huge, since we purposely booked a smaller room). There is an elevator and complimentary Mediterranean breakfast. Free bottle of water... More

Stayed for 7 days at the Senatus Hotel and my experience was fantastic..! Rooms are nicely decorated, nice queen bed, and clean. Eventhough, rooms are not big in size they are well distributed. Breakfast is included, with some variety of things to choose from. Senatus, is located in Sutanahmet, and that's where you want to be to start exploring Istambul.... More

This is a perfectly pleasant little place - but nothing much more than that. With its undeniably great location, one of the standard rooms represents good value for money. The Imperator room is more pricey and then the experience is a bit lacking for the price. In my opinion it is not one thing or another - lacks the style... More

I had just one evening in Istanbul before heading off to Kayseri at 6am the next morning. This hotel was clean, lovely glamourous room, great shower, friendly staff. The location was in walking distance of the historic part and so I made maximum use of my 3 hours in the city. They have a taxi to the airport, reasonable charge... More

We originally had a single night booked at the White House before starting our tour but needed to extend it one more night. The White House was full the seond night so we got a room here based on good Trip Advisor reviews. This is a very physically nice hotel; room much larger than the first one we had at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Senatus Hotel for seven nights. You have a lot of options while staying in Istanbul but we were lucky to have picked this hotel. The staff was friendly, professional, and willing to help you enjoy their beautiful city. The room was clean, quiet, and nicely decorated. The one thing that we loved about... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Senatus - we were there for five nights and were disappointed to leave! The rooms are generously sized, well thought out in decor, great qualty, fantastic staff...Cagdas and Selcuk, the desk staff, were superb and Umut the manager made us feel welcome and all were very attentive. Walking distance to major sites - Blue... More
