So its not a 5* in fact if you are one of those who count the stars please dont visit this boutique hotel because the beauty of this hotel is in the way its so original, small & artsy. The area is extremely convenient in terms of catching a train, visiting nearby tourist attractions, the markets..everything I'll never be able... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for a week and found it to be perfectly suited for getting around Istanbul. It is a realistic 5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, and the Sultanhamet tram line. If you want a taxi, just stand on a nearby corner and wait a minute or two since they... More

The Sumengen Hotel is literally a 5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque. From the roof top patio at night, the views are spectacular. The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and the lights from the Asian side of Istanbul are just spectacular! Inside, the view at breakfast is also lovely, but beware of the occasional gull who might want to share... More

Not the least or the most expensive hotel in Istanbul, Sumengen is perfectly located 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, the Hippodrome, and the tramway. The Grand Bazaar is 10 minutes away by foot. The plumbing is modern, showers hot, breakfasts varied and delicious. Free WiFi of course. Bed was clean and very comfortable. The... More

We went as a group of three in March 2015 on a leisure trip and really enjoyed the location of the hotel right in the historic centre of Istanbul, the clean, pretty room (although room 401 is right beneath the breakfast room and can get a bit noisy in the mornings), the breakfast buffet, late check-out til 12 lunchtime, and...

We just had a wonderful five night stay at the Hotel Sumengen in a large seaview room with spa. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere, well maintained, clean and spacious room with everything you could hope for. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with great variety and amazing view over the Mediterranean Sea overlooking the rooftops of the old city.... More

The hotel interior and rooms are on the good side of average. The staff is very helpful but the location is the reason you want to choose the Sumengen. It's a few feet from the Arasta Bazaar. A five minute walk to the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Five minutes to the Ala Turca Cooking school (which I highly recommend).... More
