Location - Perfect. Located just around the corner from Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cisterns. Blue Mosque is a 5 minute walk. From the rooftop restaurant you have a great view of Hagia Sophia Staff - Very friendly. They kept the key for us each time we were out and remembered us each time we returned without even asking the room... More

If you want to stay in the old city with all the tourist highlights within walking distance, Celal is a very good midsize hotel with reasonable prices. Friendly service. We had to leave for the airport quite early in the morning and almost two hours before breakfast time. But no worries, the staff prepared the breakfast buffet at 05:45 instead!

Celal Sultan Hotel was one of our greatest discoveries during our visit to Istanbul and we were glad we could find such a great place to stay in! We were booked at a different hotel in Taksim area but we didn’t like it much and decided to change. As it was during Christmas, most of th places were booked up... More

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

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
