The hotel is quite and suitable for couples and romantic stay. The hotel is in the vibrant area of sultanahmet area. the staff are friendly and trying to help and direct me especially... More

Experience at Hotel Spectra was incredible. Amazing service, hygiene and food. A shout out to the receptionist Mr. Onru. His politeness made our experience ever more comfortable. In a place where we struggled with the language barrier, his English skills helped us tremendously. We're thankful for your hospitality and recommend all to choose Hotel Spectra.

This is my umpteenth time at Spectra. It is my home away from home. Perfectly located in a corner in Sultanahmet's hippodrome, you're walking distance from the Blue Mosque, Agia Sofia, the tramway stop, Basilica Cistern, the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, the archaeology museum and Gulhane Park It is a converted Ottoman mansion and has been recently renovated. The new... More

Very polite service and value for money. Helpful people, clean atmosphere, amazing location literally on the doorstep of blue mosque. Breathtaking views from both the room and Hotel in general. Wide variety on the breakfast buffet. Would recommend to anyone who visits Istanbul and would definitely stay here again. To be honest wouldn't even think of looking elsewhere

Shopping around online I booked a room at the Spectra for 2 nights in late-October for a very good price. You won't find a more central hotel than this, right on the corner of the Hippodrome in Sultanahmet, our room looked out onto the Blue Mosque (in fact we were woken at 5.20 am by the call to prayer from...

We booked this hotel because we wanted to be close to the main attractions of Istanbul. Looks like we got it 'spot on'. Any nearer and we would be on the stairs of the Blue Mosque. From arrival to departure, the staff all of whose names I didn't get, but Onur, Alec and Doktor seemed always on hand. The other... More

This was a very short visit to this city and very worthwhile. The hotel could not be in a better location for all the tourist attractions. The hotel is small, rooms were clean and tidy but the bathrooms were rather small. Reastaurant was very good same menu in the main area as on the terrace with fantastic views over the... More
