I was a bit taken back by the room we were given, very small, and the hardest bed I have ever slept on. The worst part was the nights since it was so loud due to the street traffic and people. It was very hard to sleep. As this was such a poor choice my wife wanted to return home... More

We booked through hotels.com. Ended up with the basement room. No bed bugs, but felt a bit like a dungeon. Cleanliness was poor, found old hair in the shower drain. Noise from the street was very loud, kept us up some nights. Area is convenient to main attractions, but be prepared to walk up hill. Breakfast was good one day... More

Walking distance to the Bazaar and the Hagia Sofia . Theres no lift so ask for first floor, as climbing to 3rd is a bit tough with luggage. Magnificent view... More

Stayed at this hotel for 10 days and must say haven't had any problems whatsoever. The staff and management are very helpful and welcoming and even though many can't speak very good English, they tried their best to answer any of my queries. The rooms are clean and tidy and I think it is very good value for money accommodation.... More

We only stayed one night in this little hotel in the old parts of town. The room was ok for hotels in Istanbul with working aircon and a good bed and nice bathroom. The staff in the reception were two youngsters, who were green but very friendly and helpful. This isn't a luxury hotel, but very good value for the... More

I visited Istanbul with my boyfriend for 4 nights at the end of May and we both very much enjoyed our stay at the Magnificent hotel. It is a small hotel, but seems quite spacious compared to the other shops and spaces in Sultanahmet, which we thought was a great place to stay since there is much more to do... More

We stayed at Hotel Magnificent in Sultanahment, Istanbul for two nights and we had pretty good time. Cons: 1. The receptionist and hotel management spoke very little English which made it difficult to get help in navigating the city or any specific requests we had. 2. The hotel was very difficult to find in the maze of sultanahmet for us... More
