We stayed at the Sarnic Premier for two nights and found the reception staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were tight, but we had a room on the 2nd level, building above the breakfast area. There were three windows we could open if needed, but generally closed them overnight due to the prayer loud speaker at 5.00am... More

Stayed with my wife for 11 nights, really shouldnt have. When we got to the hotel late at night, we were given the so called 3-star Sarnic hotel room instead of what we had booked. The room looks like a 2 star room, basic and with many things unusable or in very poor condition. I must mention the bed was... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with us 11 nights. I am sorry but I think the main problem is you booked wrong location not hotel. Sultanahmet is historical/old city of Istanbul where you can visit all historical places by walking very easily. It is the safest place of Istanbul. There is no official star hotel in Sultanahmet and there... More

It was our first visit to turkey in Istanbul. We stayed for 5 days in Sarnic Premier hotel. The hotel had a great location, and is only a walk from the touristic areas. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, we enjoyed it a lot. The food was amazing and we had a great view... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the Sarnic Premier Hotel in Istanbul and enjoyed it very much. It was a great location to walk to everything we wanted to see in the historic section of the city. They arranged getting us a river tour on the Bosphorus since we were there too early to get into our room. The staff... More

The location is excellent, walking distance to everything in Sultanahmet. The rooms were also good and clean, the maids were very polite and friendly too . cheating us every morning :-) The other hotel staff (breakfast/counter) were a bit more cold and a bit too formal - could have been more friendly and welcoming. I had to say "good day"... More

Our travel agent suggested this hotel. I must let her know not to. The location is great, granted, and only a short stroll to the Blue Mosque etc. The rooms are very small, the bathrooms TINY, VERY basic and the shower leaked every time. The breakfast (and breakfast room) was not very good at all and barely adequate. The staff... More

I chose this hotel because it came up as being on the same level as Celal Aga Konagi, which I had stayed at before and has luxurious rooms with an extensive breakfast buffet, but it was not the 4 star experience I expected. The driver who did the airport transfer didn't speak any English, which isn't a big deal (he... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago -How they get a 4 star rating is a mystery. The only positive thing about this hotel is the location - on arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a suite - this sounded good, however all I can say is I'd hate to see what the standard rooms were... More
