Excellent location. A very comfortable and pleasant hotel. Rooms were clean and adequate. We had a front room but did notice that some of the other rooms did look smaller. Whilst the breakfast itself was quite ordinarily, the breakfast area on the roof had amazing views. The hotel offered free wi-fi in the foyer area only. The staff were particularly... More

The location of the hotel is great, the staff are generally friendly and happy to help in any way. Great place to base yourself in the old city and the breakfast room has one of the best views over the hippodrome out to the blue mosque and aya Sofia.

Our room was small and furnished with what I would describe as fairly old but serviceable Turkish furnishings, which contributed (in my opinion) to the sense of "place". Because we were in an inner room on a lower floor,... More

The Saba is a lovely place to stay. The staff was very friendly, helpful and patient with me while I would attempt to learn certain words in Turkish :<) This hotel has loads of character (you'll love the elevator!) Meals on the balcony were outstanding, the fresh fruits, eggs, cheeses and herbs were so good. The view of the Sea... More

Couldn't have choose better! Awesome location from the main touristic landmarks. The hotel has a very nice atmosphere and a great breakfast room with a magnificent view of the sea and city. The room was clean, tidy, good shower and silent. Personnel was friendly and helpful.

As a first time visitor to Istanbul, I wanted to make the most of my time there, so I chose a good value hotel right in the heart of the Old Town, Sultanahmet. I chose very well! Hotel Saba is less than 30 seconds walk from the far edge of the Hippodrome and no more than 2 minutes from The... More

The rooms are clean and big and also very well isolated, the water is hot, the view from the terrace is amazing, a perfect location,... Just the breakfast gets a little boring after a few days and for me... More
