The hotel is as close as you can get to Blue Mosque...it is centrally located to all the attractions. I would definitely recommend this to everyone who is looking to stay in center and enjoy Istanbul. Hotel staff is great ..specially Mr. Onur..he has been a great host. Me, my wife and infant daughter were there early December.

The hotel is inexpensive, very centrally located. Staff is very nice, helpful and friendly. Breakfast is excellent. Good heating, so rooms are very warm in winter, too. But it has poor sound isolation. The morning prayers from the Blue Mosque are very, very loud (can be an issue if you have arrived late and want to sleep a bit longer... More

I visited this hotel in November 2014. The hotel is excellent, great location, very clean, nice breakfast, hotel Internet was great. Also a big thanks to the receptionist Onur and lady Hana, and other staff as well. If I come back to Istanbul I will choose this hotel again and would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

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
