This is my third review of the Sebnem and suffice to say it is still at the top of the class. Spotless, great breakfast, wonderful staff, well situated, a real island of calm in Istanbul. If you are staying in Sultanahmet you can't go wrong at the Sebnem.

On the plus side 1. Steps from Topkapi Palace, Aya Sophia and Blue Mosque 2. Staff is friendly and attentive 3. Excellent breakfast with outstanding coffee and juice (best on our two week tour of Turkey) 4. Rooftop bar/restaurant/lounge is a great place to chill any time of day - morning coffee, afternoon snooze, cold beer in the evening. 5.... More

So cute, classy, tasteful. Perfect location, a short walk to the blue mosque. Cobblestone streets, lots of cafés. Our room was so clean and pretty. We had a great view out the window. Helpful staff as well.

My family and I (2 adults, 2 kids) had a wonderful stay at Hotel Sebnem. It is a sweet boutique hotel in a quiet street. The photos on the website are true to life. We had the family room - double bed, 2 singles. The room was impeccable, and the bathroom small but perfectly fitted. We were made to feel... More

It is on a quiet side deadend street, but close to numerous restaurants and shopping at the Arasta Bazaar. The hotel has an excellent buffet breakfast and provides guests with filtered drinking water... More

Hotel Sebnem's website gives you a great idea of the place. The rooms, rooftop, and street front are absolutely as picturesque as the photos they post. Stayed 5 nights in two twin rooms in May 2014. The rooms were tighter than I expected, but they were super clean with a simple charm. The rooftop breakfast is the best you will... More

We stayed at this hotel two seperate times while we were in Istanbul. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast on the rooftop terrace was fresh with a large choice of things to eat with fresh orange juice each day.. The hotel is located behind Aya Sophia and is an easy walk to everywhere within the old city. Around... More

This is a small hotel on a side street in Sultanahmet. Very nice staff that were very helpful to us during our stay. They arranged transportation to and from the airport for us and moved us to a larger room which was great as we were staying a week. Some of the rooms are a bit on the small size.... More
