Hotel Spectra is on a perfect location, right in the heart of Sultanahmet, very near Blue Mosque, Hippodrome and other „must see“ attractions. It is small hotel, simple, very clean and cozy, with lovely restaurant in front and beautiful roof terrace view. Hotel staff is very kind, professional and always helpful, especially Onur and Hasan, but also Ozan and all... More

We stayed here in June 2014 and enjoyed our 5 days enornously. The location would have been improved only if we stayed inside the Topkapi Palace itself (which was a short walk away, just like 80% of Istanbul's world-famous attractions). Despite being so compact, Spectra offers comfortable and very clean rooms. We could see the Blue Mosque from the windows... More

The main floor restaurant had excellent food and the servers... More

The hotel staff especially Onur was very helpful in guiding us about which places to visit etc. The rooms were clean and well equipped with all amenities. The location was excellent as it was right outside the Blue Mosque. The Sultanahmet street was 2 mins walk away and hippodrome... More

Beautiful hotel, great attention to detail and amazing view of Sultanahmet Mosque from our room. Istanbul will always be a bitter sweet memory for us. Hotel Spectra is in the perfect location to so many wonderful and... More
