Hotel Peninsula served as a perfect springboard for my first trip to Istanbul. Travelers can often be spoiled for choice in Sultanhamet but this hotel is a great selection. It is maybe a five minute walk to Sultanhament Park where you can see the Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and Hippodrome. The tram station is also within... More

When planning our trip to Istanbul, my boyfriend and I wanted to stay in a centrally located boutique hotel. While we don't need a lot of bells and whistles, cleanliness, convenience, value, and comfort are important to us. Hotel Peninsula had all of this and more. Prior to arrival we had arranged for transfer from Ataturk airport. We were pleased... More

More than friendly staff. 3. Very, very clean. 4. Cozy atmosphere. 5. Feeling safety and feeling like I am home. 6. I can't wait to... More

This place is clean, the staff are kind and helpful. Breakfast is the standard Turkish breakfast and is complimentary. The hotel reps suggest great and cost conscious Turkish baths, tours and restaurants. Area is safe.

My wife and I spent 8 nights at this small, basic, but clean hotel in Sultanahmet. As far a being well located you can not ask for better - 100 metres from the Topkapi Palace, The Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Surrounded by dozens of restaurants and touristy shops on your door step and close to the tram, you... More

We loved staying in this small hotel. We chose it because it was close to the main sites and convenient to travel to all the places we wanted to see. The young men at the front desk made our stay most welcoming. They were helpful in organizing shuttles and tours while we were there but were also so prompt at... More

This hotel is in an attractive and quiet part of old Istanbul near the Sultanahmet Mosque, Topkapı Palace and Hagia Sophia. Our first floor room was very comfortable and a good breakfast was served on the terrace which had a view of the Sultanahmet Mosque and the Marmara Sea. There were hammocks on the terrace and I could have spent... More
