Right in the heart of Sultanahmet (old city). Very easy to access the highlights, restaurants and tram. The open buffet breakfast was plenty was also nice. The room was so clean and the staff was very helpful. Highly recommended...

This hotel is on the doorstep to so many things to see and do, plus places to eat and the great Grand Bazaar. The hotel is easily accessible by the tube and tram from the airport making it easy and stress free and the hotel is located around the corner from the Basilica Cistern. A couple of minutes walk from... More

Really liked this place. It was so close to everything in Sultahnamet. My husband and I walked everywhere from her. It's like a 1 minute walk to the cistern and 2 minute walk to Hagia Sophia. So many restaurants close by . And the tram is right there too. Excellent breakfast with lots of choices. Comfortable bed, but room was... More

We spent 5 days in the real center of sultanahmet, few minutes walk from all important to visit. Side street, thus calm with partial view of hajja sophia, except maybe from the terrasse but only if weither allow it. Very small room but with all comfort except basically cleaned ( hairs every where) and you could hear you neighbors talking... More

We stayed At Celal Sultan Hotel in Istanbul , it was everything I imagined, get past the porter who may try to forbe you off with a tiny room, which did happen to us, I said this is no good, immediately got a much larger room at no cost. I think this is just part of the everyday hustle that... More

This hotel is situated minutes away from all the main attractions in Istanbul. Hagia Sofia, hippodrome, blue mosque , basilica cistern all walkable distance. The hotel has reasonable sized rooms and they are clean. The breakfast bar had everything you need, hot cold buffet. On arrival we were treated to a run down of package trips for sight seeing, this... More

We chose this hotel because it is within easy walking distance of all the main attractions. It is a very comfortable, attractive and clean hotel; reasonably priced and all the staff are very helpful and friendly (and speak very good English). Our deluxe room was very pleasant and I could see (most of) Hagia Sophia just laying in bed. It... More

This small hotel is in a quiet side street, with a fabulous view of the Hagia Sophia from the restaurant area balcony. The room was smallish but comfortable, and the hotel was very close to the major sites in the Old Town, as well as the tram stop for travelling over the river. Great breakfast, and a number of good... More

We stated for five nights at this hotel in a superia twin room. The location is perfect and you just can't fault the hotel. The rooms are cleaned every day and there is a lot of choice for breakfast, its a little oasis in the middle of Istanbul. Our cases were taken up to our room for us and the... More

This hotel is charming. Beautiful both outside and in and very much in Turkish style - not the 'could be anywhere' style of hotel. Furnished like a home, great breakfast, very helpful staff, opening windows, great breakfast, superb location within close walking distance of major sites (Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Blue Mosque), good shopping and restaurants. Our room was... More
