The hotel is in great location. It's very near (just a 5-10 min walking distance) to the great attractions in Istanbul. You can easily find nearby restaurants, cafes and shops. The neighboorhood is safe. We were out very late and did not encounter any problem. The staff were nice and they really tried to make things easy and comfortable for... More

We loved our stay at Ayasofya Hotel. It's so close to everything in Sultanahmet, but separate enough from the noisy bars and restaurants. The room was lovely, with the charm that hotel chains lack. The staff were super helpful and friendly. Definitely recommended.

Nice location and welcoming staff worked hard to please us. Yet, quite a few problems including poor internet access throughout our week-long stay, lack of hot water every now and then, and on one day lack of water altogether so we had to change rooms after a long argument with staff. Beautiful Istanbul made up for hotel experience. Would not... More

We recently stayed three nights at the Ayasofya. It is an excellent location close to the sights of Sultan Ahmet but relatively quiet and away from the crowds, in a once-poor but now upcoming and perfectly safe neighbourhood with a large number of small hotels. The hotel has a family atmosphere and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly, with... More

Quiet hotel, great staff, close to Topkapi, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Hippodrome, Justinian Cisterns, etc., - all walkable from the hotel. Spotless rooms and fabulous breakfasts. Having small children with us turned out to be a bonus, as the staff made them their favorites while we were there - even taking them by the hand and walking them to our... More

My Husband & I have just spent 3 days at the wonderful Ayasofya Hotel. The location, comfort & attentiveness of staff cannot be beat! Easily within walking distance to the star attractions, and the tramline. Gaye Reeves the proprietor is ever helpful, pointing us in the right direction several times. It seems that nothing is ever too much trouble for... More

This was my second stay at Ayasofya. This time I took my husband and son. I was so excited to bring them to this hotel as I had told them how great the Aussie owner and her staff were. It felt like coming home, they were so warm and inviting. The hotel is in a great location and easy walking... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this delightful hotel and would highly recommend it. It is positioned within easy access to all that Istanbul has to offer. It is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The breakfast provided was by far the best we experienced in travelling around Europe for five weeks. The staff went beyond what we would have... More
