The hotel is smack in he middle of the old city with all the historic sites at an arms length. Friendly staff and the only draw back is the cramped rooms. The hotel overlooks the Haggai Sophia which is an added bonus for art lovers.... Llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

The Zeynep Sultan Hotel is a very nice little hotel, with clean, comfortable rooms and an amazing terrace with view on the Aja Sophia. The toilet was a bit small, but perfectly clean and functional. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The only downside, the rather simple breakfast buffet. Some tahin, better local cheese and some home made jam... More

Other reviewers have highlighted this small boutique hotel's strengths. In short, excellent value for money, staff that go out of their way to be helpful (Ibrahim, the gregarious Turko-American owner, freely offers his advice on how best to plan your day) and location (a short stroll from Aya Sofya the Blue Mosque - and the nearest stop for the tram...

We stayed for four nights in May for my husband's nephew's wedding, along with our two adult children. The rooms were quite big enough (in fact our children's room was very big, and had 3 beds so they had plenty of room for bags etc) for a short stay, and the bathrooms, though small, were fine, and everything worked.

There are many options for staying in Istanbul, and I’ve stayed in at least seven different hotels there. But for me the Zeynep Sultan Hotel has become my home away from home whenever I’m in Istanbul. It’s a simple place but I find the rooms comfortable enough and the small showers and bathrooms all I need. It’s always been clean... More

I always stay at this hotel when I go to Istanbul. I was there again in April for a week. Returning to this hotel is like coming back to see good friends. The owner Ibrahim always made time it talk to my wife and I, whether it be at the breakfast room or the front desk. Imre and Yusuf were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The cradle of civilization...Turkey...from Hitites to Urartus, Phrygians to Lycians, from Romans to Seljuks...they all lived here. A city that gave birth to and fostered three glorious empires...the East Roman empire, the Byzantine empire and the Ottoman empire...once the capital city of these empires, Istanbul is still alive and breathing a mystical blend of air, weary of the contemprary urbanization and cultural clashes. Zeynep Sultan Hotel is where you will blend a magical potion from a Roman hippodrome, an Egyptian obelisque, a Byzantine Church and an Ottoman Grand Bazaar. And maybe you will top it with the Blue Mosque or the Topkapi Palace... ... more   less
