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

I spent 4 days in Istambul in the last days of February; i found this hotel for the position: it's very in the centre, very close to Aya Sophia, Blu Mosque, Gran Bazar, Galata Tower and much thinks. The place is inside in the historical area of Istanbul and really u can go everywhere just by walk. I went also... More

Do yourself a favour and take a look at the pictures of this place. It is a fine little boutique hotel. Great rooms, location and breakfast. WARNING: for those trying to find it using google maps - some idiot has labeled a location half a mile away and down a warren of streets as Villa Hagia Sophia. The only reason... More

You cannot reasonably wish for more: - Super friendly staff, both before and during your stay - Perfect location, within walking distance of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, still in a very calm street - Very cosy and nice breakfast room, incl, fresh fruit and nicely decorated little buffet - The total hit is the room: Full of very...

We stayed for 3 nights at this lovely place, would have stayed longer but fully booked. We enjoyed the fact that it is very personal, just 4 rooms, great breakfast! The location is excellent as well just in a few minutes at the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and much more. Istanbul was since a long time on my wish list,... More

great... Room and breakfast were great, hosts as well, location close but not too close to the center, small store across the street, restaurants and bars around the corner, information up the street... Comfortable, cosy and peaceful. Could not make payment with Visa Electron online.

It is always difficult to predict if your hotel will turn out to be the way it is advertised online. We were slightly worried about booking Villa Hagia Sophia as it is not the cheapest hotel and we didn't want any disappointment... Well...This amazing boutique hotel is everything and MORE!! We have received truly exceptional hospitality during our stay. Nothing... More

I stayed in this hotel on June 23-25, 2012. It was one of the most romantic places I stayed in - ever. This hotel is for those, who have been in Istanbul several times and adore the city. It is a little farther off the main roads of Sultanahmet (it takes some 10-15 minutes of slow walk to get to... More

I stayed over there mid-September. it was warm with nice breathe in Istanbul. I arrived in Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport where it's pretty far from city centre (40-45min taxi drive). I was planning to meet my girl friend there and spend a short romantic weekend together. Villa Hagia Sophia was a bit difficult to find for airport taxi driver (tip:... More
