Good location in the old city within walking distance of a lot of attractions and restaurants. Excellent internet, charming staff. Tried to email the hotel prior to departure from Australia reference airport transfers and unfortunately got no reply.

We stayed six nights in this charming hotel. On arrival we were given a room with a very small bathroom with a hamam in spite of telephoning the day before to say we would like a shower. When we took this up with the front desk the next morning they very kindly gave us a superior room on the top... More

After staying a few different places in Istanbul, I now only stay at the Sultanahamet Palace Hotel. The location, right next to the Blue Mosque in the Old City, is excellent from which to walk to see all of the highlights of the Old City. The hotel has a very reasonably priced airport transfer service with a hotel van. But... More

A very special place in the old part of Istanbul - Sultanahmet Square. Small hotel, former city house of a noble family, it has a special atmosphere. You can't find a better location as a start to visit the sites of old town. After a hard day sight seeing you can relax in the garden. You just have to do... More

Whenever i visit Istanbul the Sultanahmet Palace Hotel is where I stay. I have been there now three times and each time it was a pleasure. I am sure it has happened to some of you that you come back to a place you liked and it is somewhat a disappointment. Not the Sultanahmet Palace Hotel. Clean rooms, great breakfast,... More

I visit Istanbul every year on business and Sultanahmet Palace is always my hotel of choice. The hotel ... her professional staff ... the wonderful view ... The "hamam" bathrooms ... the delicious restaurant ... the lovely garden, the perfect location ... What is not to love?

We're a family of 5 from Toronto Canada, who visited Turkey in May 2014 and loved this place. The restaurant is located right in front of the Sultanahmet Mosque and there is a small Bazar just a few walking minutes away. You can also easily get to Hagia Sophia and Cisterna Basilica. The rooftop patio was amazing with views of... More

We arrived in Istanbul at the ferry docks early in the morning and walked from there through the ancient streets until we arrived at the hotel. We knew it was too early to check in (around 10 am), but hoped to be able to leave our small bags there, while we continued our walkabout. The polite & professional gentleman behind... More
