Location location location. Professional and knowledgeable staff, ready to assist. Modern Hotel, very clean and comfortable, contrary to other reviews the room was very quite and we slept very well. Breakfast was sumptuous and lots of variety. We shall recommend to our family and friends in Canada.

You will not go wrong with this hotel, but beware there are other hotels that go by the same name ! Great service, great rooms and great breakfast,, all in the centre of the old city, surrounded by tourist attractions and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Modern decorated and in excellent location. Good restaurants nearby eg Istanbul enjoyer, Old Ottoman Cafe. The receptionists spoke good English and were friendly. We bought the Istanbul kart from the tourist information counter in Airport. Good to buy before your journey. We took a train from airport, get out at 6th Stop Zeytinburnu, and took the Eastbound tram to Sultahmet.... More

This hotel provides a memorable experience. The location is particularly great, by a metro station, the Blue Mosque, and if course, the Hagia Sophia Temple Museum. The hotel has a great complimentary spa with salt room, steam, sauna, tea areas. We were impressed with the complimentary breakfast and messe (hummus, bread, olives, tea, etc) through the day. But, the main... More

You can't get a much better location in the old city. The hotel is only about 10 years old and is in great shape. Our king sized bed was very comfy. The staff were very helpful at all times. The only complaint is that the room could get too warm despite the thermostat. Setting. But we opened a window. We... More

First time in Istanbul so we chose to stay in Sultanahmet near a lot of the tourist attractions. Was very impressed with this hotel for a number of reasons. Location was absolutely perfect, right next to Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, short walk to Topkapi palace and Grand Bazaar. Sultahahmet tram station is just around the corner which provides direct transport... More
