Booked a Superior Double Room with Agoda on a 50% discount rate so I guess that was why I was given a small room (2 twin beds joined together) in Basement 2 that could fit 2 adults and maximum 2 large luggages (1 luggage on the rack, 1 on the floor) without obstructing the passage way and wardrobe. Was disappointed... More

We stayed here 24-28 Feb. Not sure about the hype on previous reviews though. I booked it after reading them but I think the best thing about the Sumengen is the location. To be fair we had a large and light room with a large bed but I would hardly call it a Superior room. The bathroom had a decent... More

VERY warm welcome and HUGE smiles from the moment my wife and I walked in. The staff from the front door to the rooftop restaurant were very helpful and obliging on all counts. Our room was clean & tidy but looked a bit tired, the same goes for the rest of the hotel, but this should not at all dissuade... More

- excellent service. We booked a standard room and upon arrival Kerem (the receptionist) upgraded us to the deluxe suite with a jacuzzi and sea view at no extra charge. - central location. 5 minute to Aya Sophia and Blue Mosque. - clean and well-decorated hotel and good food. The breakfast room overlooking the Bosphorus was a real bonus.

Sumengen is the perfect choice for a stay in Istanbul . Situated in a quiet corner of Sultanhamet, location is excellent. Located in a traditional building, it has a beautiful, authentic feel. The rooms are also superb, well appointed and cosy. Looking at many other options, many seemed 'over-decorated' , but Sumengen is tastefully appointed, traditional and comfortable.

We stayed in this cosy hotel for 4 days after NY 2014. All our impressions are positive - the location is the best possible without a doubt ( Aya Sophia , Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, a lot of restraurants and cafes are just "round the corner"), the service is unobtrusive but careful, we've got a spacious apartment with large bathroom,...

hotel is located center of Istanbul and within walking distance to Blue mosque and other sightseeing spots. Hotel staff are all very nice. We didn't have a chance to enjoy breakfast at the balcony because of rainy weather but view is absolutely fantastic from the balcony in a sunny day.
