This is our second trip to Istanbul and we loved this hotel. The room is very small, but well appointed , spotlessly clean and the beds are excellent. I cannot believe that some reviewers complain about the early call to prayer. Maybe they should stay safely at home. It's like staying near Big Ben and complaining about the clock chime.... More

Mr Onur is so helpful. 10/10 for location and service. Wonderful location. It was our first visit to Istanbul. All main attractions within short walking distance such as Blue Mosque Haggia Sophia Topikapi Palace and tram so near.

Right in the center of Istambul's historic sites this little hotel offers a lot, other houses can not provide. The view from the rooftop restaurant is simply breathtaking. The small staff is extremly friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but clean and with all the usual comforts. The cuisine is excellent.

The hotel is excellently located for the first time visitor to Istanbul. Literally steps away from Blue Mosque, you can walk to most attractions of the historical district. Rooms are small, understandable due to location, but very clean. Small breakfast room on the rooftop offers excellent view of the Blue Mosque and the sea. Onur, the young man at the... More

We booked a double and triple room for 4 nights with my family. The location of the hotel couldn't be any better to explore most of Istanbul's sights. Staff is friendly, rooms are quite simple but clean, most of them are a little small. Tv didn't seem to be working but in fact there is so much to see and... More

We enjoyed our stay at this Hotel Spectra. The location and price was ideal. The blue mosque is visible from the hotel and is about 200 meters away. But more than anything we were delighted by the wonderful service from the Manager, Mr. Onur who assisted us in many ways... The rooms were comfortable and well worth the price. Mr.... More

Spectra has become home away from home. It has been......several stays. Why? Location. Cleanliness. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. That's why. This charming renovated Ottoman building has recently had a serious face lift. New larger rooms with brand new bathrooms. It is located on a corner of Sultanahmet's hippodrome. Very convenient. On one side you're a hop from sites and the... More

The hotel is perfectly located in the Sulthanamet near to all the major attractions. We stayed in the family suite 4 night with kids and had the best stay. The hotel staff Mr. Onur and Mr. kazim were very helpful and made our stay comfortable.
