This hotel was in the old city of Istanbul. It was a small hotel but the staff was excellent. The rooms were small but all you do is sleep I definitely recommend this hotel. When I return I will be staying here The restaurants and the shops around the hotel and the place makes it a great little hotel.

Stayed there on each visit to Istanbul. The staff is very helpful and informative. The quality of the breakfast is good, and I enjoyed the ambience in the historic hotel. If one is interested to visit the main old sites of Instanbul, such Aya Sophia, the blue mosque, the Basilica cistern, the Topkapi palace, and the crypt of the 5... More

It is tucked in lane just behind Blue Mosque. The views of mosque and bosphorus are not that great from the hotel but its so close to actual thing that you can walk across. There are numerous roof top restaurants around to enjoy the same views by night. The staff was helping and gave some really nice advices. The only... More

We stayed at the Historia Hotel for 6 nights in June 2015 and would highly recommend this hotel to everyone! The location is perfect, only a few minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The Grand Bazaar is a 10 minute walk.The tram line is also only a few minutes walk away if you want to... More

This was a spur of the moment trip for me....I had 1 night in Istanbul and needed a quality hotel, near the main tourist attractions. The Historia had good reviews on TA and fit the criteria. I emailed the hotel several times, while working off a pc in Africa, where connections can be dicey. My emails were responded to immediately... More

This is the second time I stayed at the Historia Hotel in Sultanahmet. I highly recommend it to travelers, especially women traveling alone. The staff is excellent and the location is perfect for seeing the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, and the bazaar. There are lots of good restaurants in the area and you are awakened by the call to prayer from... More

A hotel with charm. Very friendly staff helping you to get your boarding card, giving you tourist information, booked hamam and always offered you some tea or coffee with a smile on there lips. Wi-fi in the reception. Nice place ( a little backyard) to enjoy your breakfast. Sun in the morning.

Hotel Historia is located in the middle of everything. When my legs are tired from having visited all Istanbul's highlights, Historia is just around the corner and offers me the possibility of sitting at my own balcony with a smoke, a drink and a view to Bosperus - which is worth gold. The service is perfect, the rooms are clean... More
