This is a great small hotel. Right next to the Topkapi Palace in Sultanahmet. Our room was on the smaller side but was impeccably clean. Service was great; front desk extremely helpful with travel tops; breakfast was excellent and amazing views from dining area; wifi in room. Great value. Would recommend Valide Sultan Konagi to anyone who enjoys boutique hotels.

We have had a wonderful stay at this lovely, friendly hotel. Mahmut and his staff truly treated us and our party like family. The hotel's rooms were very nicely decorated and comfortable with all you could require. The rooftop restaurant with panoramic views of Istanbul, the Bosphorus, Islands, Hagia Sophia-being just a stone's throw away!, serving delicious Turkish dishes by... More

We have stayed at and visited this fine hotel twice, as well as having enjoyed their excellent restaurant a number of times. There is no better location for visiting the Sultanahmet District with the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Arasta Bazaar, the Topkapi Palace, and many other museums and historic sites. The staff are extremely supportive and kind. They... More

Located 2 minutes away from Topkapi palace, the hotel is very nice. The building is completely renovated and appears as a typical ottoman house. The staff is very kind and especially Ferdi is ready to assist you at any moment with a lot of practical information about the city, the services and whatever else you might need. He can give...

We have just returned from a fantastic 3 night stay for our 25th wedding anniversary and joint 50th with a group of 18 friends. Mahmut, in reception was an absolute star and couldn't do enough for us, arranging our fabulous boat trip, giving us company and guidance around Istanbul, arranging transport to wherever we wanted which was no mean feat...

We came across this lovely hotel by happenstance and stopped in for a glass of wine after touring the historic sites. Restaurant manager Rambo escorted us to the balcony terrace with its panoramic views. Delightful hour spent overlooking the Bosphorus. Will certainly book our this hotel for our next visit to Istanbul.

The rooms were spotless,and the shower great, breakfast each day was excellent, huge choice,... More

They were much better than expected. Everyone went out of their way to help us in many ways. Location was great, near many mosques. Would stay there again. The breakfast had a great selection of food.

Small, family owned, hotel which is ideally placed to visit most of the main attractions by foot. Hotel is cleaned, maintained and decorated to a very high standard but has a homely ambience. Staff are all friendly, willing and have a good command of English. The restaurant gives an excellent choice for buffet breakfast and lunch with tea or coffee... More

It was a small but quaint room normal per european standards. Very close to the attractions,wifi, great view of the Marmara sea, good traditional breakfast and a really nice... More
