Sumengen is a very nice small hotel in the old town. Very conveniently located within a quick walk of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the tram stop, and the Bosphorus. Many good restaurants and small shops are nearby. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and pleasant. The breakfasts are delicious with olives, yogurt, honey, breads, fruits, meats. Can't imagine...

My partner and myself are travelling Europe for ten weeks. We were in Turkey (Istanbul ) for two and a half days, we were worried it wouldn't be long enough but in Istanbul it was. We got to see and do everything we wanted to. We stayed at this hotel, we found the staff to be fantastic, so helpful and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sumengen hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they helped to arrange taxis,sight seeing trips and restautants for us. The location in the old city is very good, with many restaurants and main sites within walking distance. We would all stay here again!

We stayed at the Sumengen six nights while on a tour of Istanbul with RickSteves.com and found it to be a fabulous choice. Location, location, location! Just a few short blocks to the Blue Mosque, Haiga Sofia, Topkapi Palace, etc. Also, it is located right at the start of “restaurant row” in the old City. When you enter the hotel... More

Great location, very nice and clean hotel - we had a tripple room for a very reasonable price and it was comfortable and nice, quiet. Old town and sights within walking distance, hotel easy to find. Breakfast was very good (although I missed some famous Turkish pastries). Staff very helpful and friendly. Will come again.

- The receptionist is beyond arrogant. He doesn't know how to interpret and paraphrase in customer service relation. - The wall between each room is so thin. People walking in the corridor, people talking, etc. We can hear what is the next room doing all the time, including going to a toilet in the middle of the night or early... More

We were warmly greeted by hotel staff on arrival. Our room had a view of a quiet courtyard shared by two other small hotels. The room itself was clean and comfortable. They even had a water kettle with tea and instant coffee. One of the few places I have stayed that provided Coffee Mate, which I much prefer to liquid... More

Although we arrived after 6 pm, it seemed our room was part serviced as there were no towels and the shower was damaged. The staff fixed these quickly though. We enjoyed the breakfast and particularly the view at night from the roof terrace. Majestic scene over the Sea of Marmara, and in the other direction the Blue Mosque is magnificent,... More

The staff is friendly and the rooms are very nice. It is also an added plus that breakfast is included, tea and sweets are available all day, and the location cannot be beat. I would definitely stay here again.
