There are several hotels in old Istanbul with the name Sultanhan but this hotel is different from the rest. The Reception area of the hotel is large and marbled with arabesque decor. Above the reception desk is an engraved wood carving which is actually a portion of an ancient wood door carved by artisans in times past. The reception area... More

This is a very late review - we stayed here for four (4) nights in April/May 2013. Hotel is in a fantastic location - very easy to walk to most places or to catch the tram if you wish. The hotel staff members are all very friendly and can speak good English. Lovely breakfast served and a great roof-top bar... More

A calm, wonderful little hotel to start the journey into the city. Ideally situated near the big mosques and Topkapi, it also has a perfect tramvay connection into the other part of town. All you need if you are tired of the huge anonymous hotel buildings.

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great room with a delicious extensive breakfast every day. The location is excellent, and we loved walking along the cobblestone streets to the mosques, underground caverns, and even to Galata Tower. The service was excellent, in-room Wi-Fi very convenient.

We spent the last five nights of our three weeks in Turkey at the Sultanhan—and it turned out to be a perfect choice. Don't expect anything slick or reminiscent of fancy chains: This is a grand old lady that has been nicely maintained. The location is perfect: Just a short walk to the tram and most of the major attractions,... More

The location must be the best point for this hotel. Close to all the main sites in the Old City, it is an ideal spot for walking or catching the tram (3 TL). We had a triple room on the 2nd floor (209) for 3 of us and found it very comfortable. The beds were firm and supportive and extra... More

We went down many narrow streets to get to this hotel and it was well worth it. Situated in the heart of the old city, it was within in easy walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar. The hotel itself is lovely and clean, though the first room we stayed in had no view and... More

Our first hotel stay in Turkey was here, and it was a wonderful introduction to the country. We could easily get to so many great restaurants and special highlights of Istanbul. The breakfast buffet on the top of the hotel was delicious, and the view splendid. The service was always nice. We were very happy here!

As a usual business traveler, we stayed at this hotel because of the reviews suggesting a great location. The reviews are correct, superb location and convenience for all of the usual tourist attractions here in old Istanbul. Make no mistake, this is not luxury upscale hotel. Everything here is quite average. The hotel itself is a little tired around the... More

We stayed here for a long weekend, and found the hotel to be welcoming, friendly and in an amazing location, just 10 minutes walk from all the major attractions in the old town. The gentleman on reception couldn't have been more helpful in translating for us, booking restaurants and giving advice on the city..thank you! Although it's location is right... More
