My fiance and I had an excellent 4 night stay at the Hotel Sapphire. It is relatively easy to find if you are arriving in the area via tram. The local shop and restaurant owners are very kind and can help point you in the right direction if you're lost. The hotel is very clean and situated in a perfect... More

Location superb for the major sights and local restaurants, you simply couldn't be better placed - when on a short visit you need to be able to get to the sights easily without hassle and from the Sapphire hotel you can walk and be in the hub of the beautiful history in minutes. The rooms are clean fresh we even... More

The Good - Hotel located in old city on a pedestrian friendly, no car street w/ lots of eateries and other hotels. The street and surrounding streets are very charming. Staff - always helpful, especially Hilal (spelling?) who was super sweet and helpful. When we landed he provided us a map and an intro to the city. He did try... More

Great hotel to stay at with very reasonable prices. The breakfast was included in the room and had a wide selection all of which were good. The staff were excellent and friendly and the location is perfect for the old part of the city and only a twenty minute walk to the newer galata. Overall I'd be very happy to... More

Stunning value for this excellent hotel where the service is first class and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are comfortable though not huge. Breakfasts are included and are standard but good quality. I cannot fault it.

When searching on the internet for booking in one of the most visited places of the world, one surely seeks for quality, good price, closeness to various attractions. I have to say that this is what we found when staying in the beautiful Sapphire Hotel, in Istanbul, a 3-plus star hotel in the centre of old Stambul. The historical sights... More

Stayed here in late June 2014. From Ataturk airport it was easy to take the metro to the tram stop stop (Gulhane) nearby. Upon arriving we were given fresh juice and a turkish delight. The hotel had the best breakfast of any hotel we had stayed at in Turkey. You won't go hungry and it is very healthy. Note the... More

After staying for several nights earlier in the week at the Antea Hotel, we decided to change our reservation to the Hotel Sapphire. The staff was courteous and friendly. The rooms were large, clean and quiet (as compared to the Antea Hotel). The breakfast selection was very good (my husband was thrilled with an omelette station) and the food was... More
