Only a few footsteps away from Hagia Sophia and close to many of the important historic sites the Sultan Zeynep Hotel really pops out with a modern look, pretty stylish rooms which, especially after the recent renovation, are a good choice for people who like a peaceful atmosphere. Friendly staff, good breakfast, not much more to say... One little minus:... More

We stayed at the Zeynep Sultan hotel at Sultanahmet in Istanbul for a week. The hotel overlooks the Hagia Sophia, which is among of the oldest monuments in the world. The blue mosque is 5 minutes walking distance. The hotel is just 3 minutes away from Gulhane tram station with easy connections to the rest of the city. The Gulhane... More

Location is walking distance to most attractions in Sultanahmet area. Otherwise, the nearby Gulhane tram station takes you to most of the major locations in Istanbul. Staff are friendly, speak perfect English and very accommodating (we arrived a little bit too early but they let us in our room anyways).

Recently renovated hotel close to the main historical monuments, museums and shopping areas of the Old City (Sultanahmet). Rooms rather small but comfortable and tastefully decorated. Breakfast room on the roof (you can have breakfast indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather), with a beautiful view of Hagia Sofia? Nice and helpful staff. Surprisingly quiet, while being in the middle... More

Newly renovated with a silver grey colour scheme the hotel is slightly nicer than the pictures show. A little glitzy for my taste but more subdued than a lot else you will find. The rooms are small but everything one requires is there and works perfectly. Immaculately clean and well run with friendly atmosphere. The best however is the location,... More

Stayed here last week on a 4 day break to Istanbul. The rooms have recently been renovated and were tastefully decorated to a high standard. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the location is right at the heart of the old town - 1 minutes walk from the Ayaspohia and 5 from the Blue Mosque. I would have... More

I booked a room a month before arrival and got a 30% discount. I spent most of my time exploring the city so didn't care much about the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room and the bathroom were spotlessly clean. While having breakfast on the terrace, I saw a splendid view of the Hagia Sofya. Breakfast... More

I have stayed in this hotel in 2012 and it was already lovely then. Now its even better! The rooms are renovated and everything is completely new! The rooms are a bit small, but it was not a problem for us. The location is fantastic. You don't hear any noise, yet you are 5 minutes away from The Blue Mosque... More
