This restaurant's service was very bad. (Maybe it's specially to the asian guests. I feel the manager ignore me, and it seems to that they do racial discrimination.) Only the view was great.

We booked based on the positive reviews and were not disappointed. The location was perfect for our short stay (3 nights) and we walked everywhere, although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. The room was clean, spacious and well laid out for our family of 3 (we booked the suite with balcony). Everyone at the front desk was beyond helpful from... More

The Seven Hills Hotel is in a perfect location for anyone wanting to explore the historic Sultanahmet district of Istanbul with the iconic Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace all minutes walk away on relatively flat streets. Hotels nearer to sea require some fairly steep hill climbs to reach the main touristic areas and therefore the Seven Hills is... More

This is our third trip to Istanbul, so we knew what we wanted in a hotel. Previously we had gone to hotels which had been recommended by our travel agent, but last time we found this hotel opposite the Four Seasons and after inspecting their rooms and rooftop restaurant, we decided that the next time we came to Istanbul, we...

This hotel is in a great spot, directly across the street from the Four Seasons. Walking distance to many historic attractions the Mosque, Palace etc. and the tourist district. The rooms are nice - nothing special, but the real draw here aside from the location is the open air roof-top dining and views. The restaurant at dinner is packed around... More

It was our fourth stay in this nice hotel in Sultanamet/Istanbul. During the last eight years, the whole area has obviously become cleaner and more quiet. The traffic is almost non-existing and the only cars around are only bringing guests from the surrounding hotels. The nearest neighbour is the Four Seasons Hotel and their guests do certainly not make any... More

Outside our usual travel budget, our second stay of almost a week at the Seven Hills Hotel made the stay in Istanbul extra special. If you’re going to a special city like Istanbul, why not make it extra special for yourselves and indulge a bit? The magic of historical Istanbul is the skyline, the amazing architecture interposed with bridges, the... More

We didn't stay at this hotel as a guest but we visited in a afternoon the rooftop for a drink and a brunch. My husband saw the rooftop from the street...

If you like to be near Ayia Sophia and Blue mosque on the East side of Istanbul is the best location. Clean and simple! Breakfast just fine ...could be more fresh ....Restaurant food just ok....nothing Special! The view is fantastic from the restaurant!!!!

This small hotel is just what a new traveler to Istanbul should stay in. The staff is friendly & helpful, the rooms are very nice and the rooftop restaurant is such a treat first thing in the morning while you enjoy coffee and a lovely breakfast buffet. The view is spectacular in all directions. We had our windows open the... More
