Zeynep Sultan Hotel was a perfect place to stay during a trip to Istanbul. It is very well located, two steps away from Topkapi, Ayasofia. Superb terrasse with a view on Ayasofia. Emery, Duran and all of the stagg will provide you with great tips on the city and do numerous efforts to help you on future reservations.

The Zeynep Sultan Hotel is in the heart of the old city. You cannot beat its location. It is 2 blocks from the Sultan Ahmed Square, the TopKapi Palace, and the Byzantine Cistern, Dan Brown's book "Inferno". And, there is an extra surprise in the basement, the owner will be happy to show you. The rooms are comfortable, the staff... More

We enjoyed very pleasant and helpful staff at the reception and in the cafe. The hotel has perfect location and is very quiet - no muezzins in the morning even if a camii is 30 m away from the window. Thank you for making our trip nicer! :-)

Ideally located in the old town, it served perfectly our purpose. Great location close to everything, very friendly and helpful staff and a super cute cat living in. The room had everything we needed, plenty of storage space and very comfy beds. The only downside is that the walls are rather thin, especially in the bathroom, and you can hear... More

Zeynep Sultan Hotel in Instanbul is a great place to stay. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and are committed to making your stay in their great city easy and pleasant. Great European breakfast on a beautiful patio overlooking an old mosque. English is spoken which is a great help to us monolingual Americans. Great location to all attractions... More

I have come here on and off for the past couple years. It's always been competitively priced, clean, and needless to say it's in a great location. The staff is friendly and the free breakfast is great. The rooms are a bit small, but for travelers who plan to spend most of their time out and about that shouldn't be... More

The hotel has an awesome location near Hagia Sofia, the Basilica Sitern, SultanAhmet mosque and on walking distance to the Grand Bazaar, spice bazaar and Eminönü (Where all the buses are, the closest Tram station is Gulhane, only minutes away from the Hotel). The staff is very nice and helpful. The hotel is pretty clean. Most would say the breakfast... More

We stayed in February, 2014. The staff was very friendly and all were fluent in English and very helpful. The rooms were tiny, but you are (just barely!) in Europe, so this is what you should expect! Excellent location. If we return to Istanbul, we would not even bother looking elsewhere. Bonus - the shop down the street selling ceramics... More

Very conveniently placed in the Sultanahmet area, very close to the Basilica Cistern and most downtown attractions. Extremely helpful staff, Rooms are small, but furnished in good taste. Breakfast average - but plentiful + a great view of Hagia Sophia from their terrace

This B&B I would recommend to everyone. You can't get a more convenient location than this. No more than a 10 min walking distance to any of the attractions - aya sofiya, blue mosque, topkapi castle, the ferry port and grand bazaar, gulhane park, etc. The hotel is in between sultan ahmet station and gulhane station. The metro station is... 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
