Finding the hotel was an experience of its own! Expect to carry bags up narrow stairs, 6 rooms on three floors. The room was large enough and had a turkish old charm. Clean, inviting linens! Reception and breakfast areas are on third floor, our room was on second floor. Very friendly atmosphere, boutiques nearby, park setting off hotel, centrally located.... More

Cannot find something to discourage traveller to not book a room in the Antik Sofia Hotel, which is located accross the little Hadga Sofia and in the centrum of all. Few minuts to the Blue mosque and to all incl. Grand Bazzar and with a street car for about one dollar you get to the harbor for a boat sightseeing... More

This small but nice hotel is perfectly located. Close to all Sultanahmet highlights and on a nice grass square, facing the small Aya Sofia. From the breakfast room you can see the boats coming on to the Bosporus. The owners were very nice, kind and helpful. The rooms were clean and well kept. Sheryl (the owner) is American and has...

This was a fairly average budget accommodation hotel. The rooms were clean. It had free WiFi that was moderately fast (good enough for video calls). The breakfast was good (the French Toast was a welcome surprise and deviation from standard continental fare. For the price I paid (120 TL a nigh) it was pretty cheap for Istanbul in Sultanhamet. It... More

Recently met my daughter and friend met here after their semester at sea. The biggest plus goes to the location and friendliness of the staff. One of the owners is English speaking and was quite accommodating by providing recommendations for activities and side trips. She coordinated a wonderful side trip to Cappadocia for us which we are still talking about.... More

We had to move to this hotel for two night when our flight was suddenly cancelled. Surprisingly it appeared much better as compared to all photos that we saw in web. In fact it is something between guesthouse and hotel. The location is excellent it is right in front of Aya Sophia, there is a terrace with a sea view... More

The room was so small that our luggage was occupying the whole free area of the room (even though we only had one suitcase). Manager/owner was alright - helpful and nice. The location is perfect for sightseeing the historic part of Istanbul. Bathroom is kind of gross but usable. Our room faced the small street where the hotel is located... More
