This was our first stay in Istanbul. The hotel is ideally situated in the old city centre. It's a literally a minute walk away to the Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, and Hagia Sofia. As a long-time establishment, the rooms aren't new or modern but it's clean and the guest service is decent. However, the best thing about the hotel is its... More

We stayed for four days in late December 2014. The location is excellent, just one minute walk to the Hippodrome and the Museum of Turkish-Islamic Arts, three to the Blue Mosque, five to Haghia Sophia, seven to Topkapi, and ten to the Grand Bazaar. The balcony on the top floor offers a great view of Sultanahmet and is superb for... More

I was really surprised by both the size of the room and the cleanliness, it is also extremely close (walking distance) to a lot of the tourist attraction including the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and both Bazaars. When we arrived the elevator was not working, but we were on the first floor so it really wasn't and issue. There is... More

Booked at Emirhan for 2 bedroom apartment for 5 days, but as all booked, I was provided the chance to stay at their sister hotel (Saba). There are 2 rooms that has a good view to outside (403) and the 500 floor. We were given the 403 and we asked for additional beds (make sure no additional fee) as we... More

This Hotel is exactly as it looks in the photos shown on booking.com! The view in the double deluxe room es brilliant, and the balcony looks more like a terrace! Many small restaurants nearby, close to many attractions!

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.

We spent 3 nights at the Hotel Saba in June. The location is fantastic. We walked to all the major attractions. 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
