Boutiqee St Sophia is a perfect value for money hotel at a brilliant location with very friendly staff, nice rooms and a good breakfast. All key places of interest are pretty close and accessible with a walk. If I have the possibility to return to Istanbul, I'll choose this hotel again for sure.

This small, modern hotel situated by the Hagia Sophia was a delight. Well designed interiors and ever helpful staff made for a pleasurable stay. Also, given its location, it was remarkably good value.

After 30 hours of travel this was a little slice of heaven. Friendly staff who spoilt guests from check-in's complimentary drink all the way through till checkout. Nothing was too much trouble. Wi-fi was perfect enabling me to conduct business over SKYPE. The location was sensational and they did an amazing and great value arrangement for a personal tour guide.... More

A modern European hotel with a gracious and helpful staff is near-perfectly located next to Hagia Sophia, right on the metro line and across the street from the ornate exit of the Basilica Cistern, built in 532 A.D.. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Very good hotel with a perfect location. Friendly staff, clean rooms. I had some problems with the internet connection (interrupted quite often) but this was a minor issue. I would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone interested in a good value hotel with a perfect location on Istanbul.

From the moment we were picked up at the airport the Boutique St. Sophia Hotel was outstanding. The hotel's location to major historical attractions, restaurants and the transit system is perfect. The room was modern, spacious and very comfortable. I think what distinguishes this hotel from all others is the friendly, courteous and helpful service provided by an excellent staff.... More
