Friendly and helpful service, delicious breakfast with Turkish specialties. Impressed by the night porter who made us coffee and small cakes very early in the morning before going to the airport. Everything is very... More

Arrived at the small and cute hotel a bit late, but their was someone to help us. Next day got intensive info about the city after breakfast. Good place to stay for a city trip, close to the major highlights! And also close to eating facilities. Nice rooms and friendly people.

While on vacation in Istanbul I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel in the old city, less than a mile from the extraordinary Blue Mosque and a sister facility in Taksim, the modern upscale side of the city called Villa Pera. The service was excellent, Baruck, Faruck and Alper were wonderful hosts who went out of their way... More

Highly recommend to everyone, especially to the couples! Very warm hospitality and excellent service! As for the bedroom with the bath... simply WOW!!! The owner also provides you with a transfer if you need it. The hotel is located very close to the general sightseeings of the old part of the city. Here I made a proposal to my girl... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and it is one of the best places we have stayed in Europe. We mentioned we were on our honeymoon and our room had a rose petal bath, candles, wine and chocolates. It's a gorgeous room with a super comfortable bed. The breakfast was also really special with home... More

Villa Hagia Sophia is a special location in the old center Sultanahmet. It's more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel. They have 4 rooms that are beautifully decorated. The breakfast is simple, on Sunday, for example, there have no fresh bread. I found the room (downstairs) were noisy, sounds came from inside as well from outside. The windows... More
