This lovely hotel is opposite the Hagia Sophia and only a few minutes walk from Blue Mosque, Basilica Cisterna..it's right on the tram line so you don't even have to walk the 10 minutes to the Grand Bazaar or Spice Bazaar..great location, quiet. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Breakfasts good and dinner in the Matbah restaurant was probably the... More

I don't usually write reviews, but i simply had to because the staff were so attentive. The budget hotel rooms were a 3.5/5 and thats only because the rooms are of a vintage nature (not an acquired taste for myself) and abit small. In our case we had an issue with the room, so we just told the guest relation... More

the terrace restaurant is quite good but the rest was just awful : room , service , breakfast. Just pick up another hotel..! The location is ok but with the number of hotel around , I would highly recommend you to avoid this one , unless you go for a tea

We stayed at the Ottoman Hotel Imperial for four nights recently. The hotel is lovely - it has a wonderful location, right next to all the important sights in Istanbul. The hotel itself is quiet and has wonderful, friendly staff. In particular, I would like to thank Rustem who was terrific at Reception and patiently answered a million questions from... More

Our group of six stayed at the Ottoman Imperial Hotel and were very pleased with the friendly and attentive staff, in particular a gentle man named Erhon Deger. He went out of his way to insure that our needs were met. The rooms were small but tastefully decorated. The bathroom was small also but serviceable. We had drinks in the... More

I was fortunate enough to stay at this Hotel in early October. It made my few days in Istanbul very enjoyable. It was immediately across the cobblestones from the Hagia Sophia and very close to everything else such as the Blue Mosque and general hub of Istanbul. My room was small but comfortable and the bathroom was very nice. The... More

This was our second time to stay at this charming hotel across the street from the Ayasofya. For a comparable price of many other hotels in the city you are in the heart of the Sultanahmet Square... so convenient to everything. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful and the rooms are very comfortable and have a wonderful charm... More

I stayed with my wife in Ottoman Imperial three nights from 3rd Nov 2014. The location is great, right next to Hagia Sophia. I did read reports in Tripadvisor. Contrary to some, yes the room was small but elegant and clean - absolutely OK it even had a choice of different pillows. Also the breakfast was good. Many varieties hot... More

Traveled here with my group of 12 and couldn't be happier! The hotel itself is stunning and the rooms are very comfortable and am so happy I chose this small, historic hotel that is steps away from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and much more in famous, best heritage district . Customer relations desk had all answers for everything... More

Stayed four nights on way back from Nepal. Attentive, friendly staff. Unbelievably we were remembered from our stay five years ago. Perfect location across the street from Hagia Sophia, central to the tram. The room was a bit small, but all the amenities were there for a boutique hotel. Will definitely stay again when in Istanbul.
