I love this hotel!! Honestly I cant say enough in praise about the hotel and the wonderful, helpful, and friendly staff. It is a GREAT hotel; very clean and quiet and great location; being very close (walking distance) to major sites and attractions in the Old City and also to public transport, and also adjacent to a wonderful dining street....

Stayed 5 nights 1st stop in Istanbul. Location perfect for visiting the Old City sights, shopping and casual restaurants. Fabulous roof terrace, lovely atmosphere. A delight to go home to after a big day out.

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

After pondering a seemingly endless number of options to stay in Istanbul, we finally settled on this small, quiet hotel on a side street in Sultanahmet, within easy walking distance of Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, good restaurants and terrific shopping. The hotel was clean, tastefully appointed, and the rooms somewhat larger than many in this part of town. We... More

We stayed at the hotel 3 nights in May. The location is in walking distance from the Blue Mosque, Haya Sofia, the Grand Bazaar etc. Very friendly staff, wifi working easily, nice roof top terrace with great views of the Bosporus strait. Great for breakfast and a drink in the evening. The uniquely decorated rooms, the winding corridors and a... More

Sebnem was a great find for us and we were warmly welcomed and well looked after. Yes, as many reviewers have said, the bedrooms are fairly small but they are perfectly formed and we didn't really expect otherwise in an old building in the historic centre of a city. We had a standard double which was very comfortable, had satelite... More

If you are looking to stay in the Sultanament District (near the blue mosque and aya sofia) then I suggest you stay here. No need for the upsell on the "Garden Room" - we had to stay there as they did not have any other rooms available. The Garden is nice but we did not once use it as we... More

We stayed a total of six nights here, at the beginning and end of our round Turkey trip. Excellent location, within easy walking distance of the main sites, a useful tram route and dozens of restaurants (recommend Aloran for a casual meal and Albura Kathisma for something a bit fancier). We were in the same room both times (18) which... More

This was our third stay at Sebnem and it always fits our needs perfectly. The staff is very friendly and helpful.. and always seem to have a smle. We love the rooftop terrace and this time we were able to spend a little extra time relaxing and enjoying the view. The breakfast is excellent with many homebaked goods. They also... More
