The Ottoman Hotel Imperial was the perfect place from which to explore the Old City in Istanbul. Literally across the street from Hagia Sophia, it is steps away from Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Archaeological Museum, Hippodrome, and easy walking distance to Grand Bazaar and all the other old sites. The light rail stop is around the corner. We were greeted... More

We stayed for 4 nights in early April 2015. The good: The location is fantastic. Everything that we wanted to do or see was either a short walk or a short tram ride away. The Aya Sofia is just across the street and there were dozens, if not hundreds, of restaurants within a 15 minute walk. For destinations that required... More

Ottoman Imperial is a cosy hotel just beside Aja Sofia. The location is great if you want to stay in Sultanahmet. Rooms are not so big but comfortable, the best thing about the hotel is the great service provided by the staff.

This was a late booking for us, but we were really happy with the location (near Hagia Sophia). It's located in the old town - the area is touristic, but the hotel is quiet and peaceful. Despite that, it was impossible to stay/rest between 11.00 and 18.00 as there is some construction work going on (so be aware) You will... More
