Location a few minutes walk from all the attractions of Sultanahmet. Towels were changed every day. I traveled with a cat and there was no problem. Varied breakfast. Very friendly staff. Free parking is on a street; however there were no problems. WiFi pretty bad. Outside AC unit very noisy. We stayed on the top floor (the stairs are very... More

Our shuttle driver had trouble finding this hotel on it's narrow, quaint street in the old part of Istanbul. When we arrived it was worth the trouble! The young man at the front desk was very accommodating, even helping me print boarding passes for our next day's flight. The breakfast was delicious and varied. After checking out, our taxi never...

Sur Otel was a great stay! The staff here were tremendously friendly, and spoke great English for travellers of such origin! The hotel itself is an old Turkish house by the looks of it, and offers a very cosy, family oriented stay. The breakfast was prompt and offered a plethora of delicious dishes, including eggs, and traditional turkish dishes. The... More

When we arrived at this place, I was really skeptical about the location. It was in the middle of Sultanahmet in an alley. We were greeted with smiles and immediately the staff offered us with refreshments during our check in. Throughout the stay, the staff made us feel right at home. Every breakfast, the waiter will go up and down... More

I stayed in their suite for 4 days and it was perfect. Although the room layout was a bit strange, it was large and airy and perfectly comfortable. It had five opening windows looking out on to the Marmara sea, a minute but adequate and well stocked bathroom and was spotlessly clean. The breakfast buffet was very good, with Turkish... More

At first I had some doubts about this hotel when I booked it, because last time we were in Istanbul and stayed at a hotel with the same prices, it wasn't very good. But I was so wrong! The hotel was just amazing for this price. Besides they pick you up and drive to Ataturk airport for free depending on... More

I read a couple of reviews where people said that they felt like home at the hotel and I just couldn't imagine how that could be. It is true. When I first checked in, they took me to a room at the very top--a part of the breakfast room. It was a bit odd cause when I walked out of... More

I think I was more than lucky to book at this hotel not knowing much about it and then experience it's excellent services and location. I stayed only 5 nights from the 23rd of March and I enjoyed staying there all the time. Room and bathroom are very clean but it was clear that the whole hotel was spotless and... More
