This boutique hotel was recommended by a friend who stays there when in Istanbul on business. It is in the Old City where all the historical sights are. Everything is in walking distance. The staff are so friendly & accommodating. Mention must be made of Rambo, the restaurant manager; Serkon, Mahmood & Ilke on the front desk, & Faizal the... More

My daughter stayed at this location before and wanted to stay again when I met her in Istanbul. Amazing location next to the Hagia Sofia and view of the Bosphorus. Lovely seating at the top for breakfast and afternoon coffee. We liked the 3rd floor green rooms. Great location to explore Istanbul.

Unfortunately my attempts to get a room here failed, so I caution anyone from trying. There are way too many hotels in Istanbul's Sultanahmet district who can doubtless provide better service. My experience was that I emailed the hotel directly and asked very simple questions (e.g. "Can we use the free airport transfer to go *to* the airport rather than... More

The hotel was perfectly located, in a few steps from the door, we arrived at Topkapi palace entrance. Sultanahmet Park is very easy walk from there. It is not in the street where all the hotels and cafes are located, but with 5 minutes walking. So we don't have all the noises.. especially with all the cafes having FIFA World... More

My friend and I spent the past 8 days staying at this bijou property bang in the heart of the Old city of Istanbul. From our arrival to our departure yesterday the service we received was second to none! We were upgraded to an apartment located next door to the hotel, as my friend wanted us to have separate rooms,... More

This was an incredible hotel and we could not have been happier. If I ever go back to Istanbul, I won't stay anywhere else. The view from the terrace at the restaurant is breathtaking. Rambo and his staff do a wonderful job in the restaurant. They do a fabulous job with the presentation of the breakfast and Rambo had such... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights when we stopped in Istanbul while returning from a visit to Europe and we couldn't have chosen a better place! It is about 30 minutes' drive from the airport. Taking a taxi would cost you somewhere around 40-50 Turkish Lira (depending on traffic). The hotel also offers one free transfer (from/to the... More

At the end of May we stayed 5 nights in a triple room on the second floor at the front of the hotel. Though the front of the hotel was at times noisy, the room was a good size with comfortable twin beds and good pillows. Room had excellent air conditioning and small safe. Hotel is in a great location... More

I just returned from my 3-week Turkish holiday. The Valide Sultan was the perfect hotel to stay at in Istanbul for one last experience of genuine Turkish hospitality. Serkan was so helpful and truly wanted me to experience the best of Istanbul during my 4-night stay. He offered me tea and a chat each time I returned to the hotel... More
