This hotel is a real gem in an excellent location. My sister in law and myself more than enjoyed our 5 night stay in this great hotel. We were greeted at the airport then by the excellent reception staff who supplied us with a welcome drink, a small gift, maps and very useful details about Istanbul. Our room was spotless... More

This hotel certainly lived up to all the good reviews I had read. The position is excellent, in a pedestrian street lined with restaurants near Gulhane Park. It is only 1 short block from the major tram line which takes you to all the major sites in the old city and to the Grand Bazaar or to Dolmabahce Palace if... More

We found the hotel through good ratings of tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Hospitality was there by well trained staff and the feel of the hotel seemed to be of a well founded establishment. Our pleasent experience with the hotel started before or stay. We were in the vicinity before we booked so dropped by. Hotel was little off... More

A friend and I met up in Istanbul for a few days of vacation and chose the Hotel Sapphire based on previous positive reviews. Overall, I would say that we made a good choice and that the reviews for the hotel are accurate. We stayed in a twin room that was a bit on the small side based on North... More

While the hotel room itself was average in terms of decor, the room was neat and tidy. I did have an issue with my shower not draining and the water not being hot. However, when I told the staff, they got right on it, and by the time I returned from sightseeing, everything was fixed and running smoothly! The real... More

The hotel is quite good. The service and the personal of the hotel is very friendly and hospital. We had a worm greeting with a small present at the moment of check-in, and checking out of the hotel. The breakfast is perfect: a great variety of everything. A small bemol: the rooms are quite small and dark even in the... More

Situated in a pedestrian street very close to the Topkapi Palace, Hotel Sapphire is ideally located. Step outside the door and there are two restaurants highly rated by Trip Advisor reviewers within two minutes walk (Pasazade and New Hatay). From the Sapphire it is about ten minutes walk to the Haghia Sophia, Blue Mosque and the Basilica Cistern and there... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel staff picked us up at the airport, which was nice, because the city layout can make it confusing. Our flight was late, so it was very nice that their staff waited for us. The hotel is great and location fantastic for walking to all of the main sites; the... More

Great location, really charming staff and room 505 has a glimmer of a view of the Bosphoros. Breakfast offered a great choice with attentive staff. Sauna and pool a real delight and opened late...great holiday hotel.
