Beautiful hotel, beautiful and spacious room. Rather quite. Friendly hotel staff. Best location--right next door to Hagia Sophia, 5 minutes walk to Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque. I wish the buffet breakfast offers some changes. We stayed there for 5 days, basically the same breakfast. Also, their wifi was not stable. All in all, we were very happy with the... More

Have stayed here from 16-18December'14. The hotel is strategically located closely to the mosques, churches, museums, tram and eating area. They are just a walking distance to each other. I like it a lot cos the hotel is on a quiet lane (but very safe to walk at night) just off the main road. The staff were friendly and helpful.... More

In terms of location -- you can't beat it. Helpful staff. Breakfast buffet is average for the price - I would have expected better from the "luxury" rating. The rooms are smallish (as least mine was) and be prepared for paper thin walls -- especially if you're near the elevator as my friends were. That, combined with neighbours who's snoring... More

It was the second time in Istanbul, I really enjoyed staying at Ottoman Hotel Imperial. They have lovely staff, location is superb just next to Hagia Sophia, looking over this old mosque/church at night from our room when it is lit up was surreal. Their restaurant is really good in a lovely garden. By the way, thank you guys at... More

My girl friend and I stayed here in June. Very nice and welcoming. They told us they spoke English, but it was broken and hard to understand. They gave us wrong direction.

As the other reviews attest, if you want to be in the center of the major tourist attractions such as the Hagia Dofia, the Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, and the Bazaar, you would be hard pressed to find a better location. Besides location, the hotel is clean and actually with very attractively decorated rooms. The staff was friendly and... More

Incredibly, this hotel actually faces the back of one of Istanbul's main sites, the Hagia Sofia. The reception staff are smilingly helpful and the Visitors' service is excellent in helping you to work out your sight-seeing schedule and buying your tickets so that you don't waste any time in uncertainty.

After a long trip, we had a short layover in Istanbul. This Hotel was perfect and an amazing value. By "amazing value", I mean we got to stay in a luxury hotel, with our own in-room hamman, free breakfast, and on a secret cobblestone street abutting the Hagia Sophia. By being centrally located, we were able to see as much... More
