Ah, what wonderful memories we have of this hotel with its over-the-top decoration in white, gold and deep red. Although we booked a standard double room in the basement (which would've been tiny, but adequate), Mert (the well-spoken and very helpful hotel manager) kindly upgraded us to the room off the Reception which had an exotic interior, small yet very...

Although tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Sultanahmet, this Ottoman inspired hotel is no less of a sensual experience. The rooms are wonderfully over the top (even the complimentary nuts are served in felt lined bowls!), but extremely comfortable. The staff more than match their surrounds. Mert - the manager - made us feel very welcome, and the... More

A fantastic little hotel in a quiet neighbourhood but very close to all main attractions. Mert, Hakan and the rest of the staff treated us like princes and made our stay at the Sultan Tughra a splendid one. Very nice ad light room, good bed and delicious surprises for breakfast every day. Will definitely consider to come back to this... More

We spent 4 nights in Room 21 in the basement which is probably the smallest room in the hotel. It is really very small however for us it was not a problem as we spent most of our time in the hotel in the lounge which has 24 hr tea/coffee/juices. The breakfast each day is different and very good. Azizeh... More

This hotel is small. The rooms are small. The decor is over the top and wonderfully kitsch. The service is extraordinary. Mert, the manager, made us feel at home immediately. He insisted we never hesitate to ask for any help (he quickly straightened out a miscommunication we'd had with our van pick up). Mert helped us with arranging a tour... More

When my friends & I first arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by the hotel staff, Mert, who was very welcoming. While working on the check-in, we were served coffee by the friendly chef, really nice & heartwarming. The room was pretty small but very clean & well-decorated. Location-wise, I'll consider it convenient with restaurants/cafes close-by & about 10mins... More

What a gem of a hotel from the moment you enter the reception till you check out the staff make you feel very welcome. Mert the manager could not do enough for us asking if there was anything we needed every time we returned to the hotel and the complimentary basket of fruit when we arrived added that personal touch...

Hotel quite small, decorated in glitzy "Arabian nights" theme. Rooms very small. Excellent location, close to all attractions in Old Town -- although a bit difficult to find. On the plus side, breakfast room open all hours, with self service tea and coffee. Hotel very clean, with excellent bed linen, changed each day. A major plus was the staff. Merd,... More

We stayed for four nights and had a very good experience. The location is great, 10min walk from the Aya Sophia, but the hotel can be tricky to find without a good map. Easier with a car as it's just within the walls from Kennedy Cd. Though local taxi drivers may want to charge you too much blaming congestion (not... More

We stayed at Sultan Tughra with some friends 5 nights in the middle of may. The hotel is perfect for a visit to Istanbul. Situated in the old town with walking distance to most of the places to visit. The rooms are not the biggest but with good beds and changing of towels and linen every day. And what a... More
