We stayed here between 8-14 Jan 15. This family run hotel is a stone throw away from the Blue Mosque and within walking distance from other attractions within the sultanahmet area. Its a cosy, quiet and clean establishment. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, and the continental breakfast was satisfactory. Many thanks Aydan, Sadat, Behruz, Ergun and all the other...

We stayed here on a 3-day trip to Istanbul. Excellent location, right in the Old City and near Blue Mosque. Room was in the "boutique" part of the hotel...which is the cheaper part. There is a "Premiere" hotel by the same name, and attached. Our room opened out onto an unheated corridor, so basically you had to go outside to... More

I have been four times in Istanbul and usually turkish people are very friendly, unfortunately it was not the case with this hotel. The hotel is very well located, next to Blue Mosque, but the rooms are noisy especially if you are on the first floor. They start setting the tables for breakfast very early in the morning, around 6... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night at the end of December. The hotel staff was very helpful and very accommodating with any request that I had. The room was in a good condition and suited my needs well for one night. The hotel was located right off the main Hippodrome square within an easy walking distance to many... More

No lifts only a spiral staircase to 4th floor. Broken showere recess with dirty water. The carpet was stained and dirty. Sometimes the wifi did not work properly in the room. The breakfast was not to the mark and the value of money which I paid was lots and over paid. The hotel is close to a Mosque and our... More

We stayed two nights at Sarnic Hotel in old town Istanbul. We chose the hotel because of the Rick Steeves comments. It is indeed close to the mosque and the Hippodrome. Our room was on the fourth floor overlooking a small courtyard below. The room needs some tender loving care. There is a wide crack in the vinyl flooring, some... More

My toddler son and I stayed here on a long layover in Istanbul. For full disclosure, my son had a stomach bug the whole 13 hour flight, so my review might be a little colored by the sheer exhaustion of that. The man on the desk when we arrived very late was very kind and helpful, even taking us to... More
