Room interior are uniquely design. However the bathroom was very small. Bath tub comes with built-in screen to prevent water spillage but the screen door is rather small. If a person is very fat or obese, you wont be able to enter the tub to take a shower. Hotel is by the roadside but hard to locate. Breakfast was delicious!

We booked the hotel for 5 nights in the first week of April, being under the impression that it is a "5 star boutique hotel" as advertised. It was one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. Please be aware that this is not a 5 star hotel and unless you want a 2 star experience for 5 star... More

I liked the location of Ottoman's Life Hotel which is in Fatih. It takes about 10 minutes to reach the major sights in Sultanahmet by tram. From Ataturk Airport it is a direct ride on Metro Line 1A (Aksaray Station). Historia shopping mall is on the opposite side of the road. The lobby and rooms are nicely furnished in an... More

We traveled to Istanbul in June 2012 with our 2 year old twin boys. The hotel was nice but the rooms were very small and cramped. The staff was helpful and friendly and assisted in planning our daily travels. The room could have looked bigger and better had the furniture and decor not been so loud and garish in their... More

My wife and I booked this hotel through Priceline's Name Your Price deal. We picked the Sultanahmet neighborhood, but this hotel is actually in the Fatih district. We stayed at this hotel for three nights. In hindsight we would have much rather stayed in Taksim (where all the action is). 1st night: When we arrived at the hotel for check-in... More

Stayed at this hotel which is situated in the Fatih district (about 10/15 min tram ride into the Sultanahmet area). Found it for relatively good deal on Agoda. Good place to stay if you want to be outside all the chaos and harassment that was incessant in Sultanahmet (I was traveling with my sister and as two young girls in... More

Nice hotel, but a little far from the centre of things. Also, the google maps location is nowhere near the actual location, something to bear in mind if you're walking!! The rooms are nice, different decor which is good. Staff friendly, not great english. The wifi is a really annoying system, where you have to get a new alphanumeric password... More
