I did not book this hotel and had to transfer from the Ottoman Park. Although the Ottoman Hotel Park arranged transport the taxi could not deliver me to the Imperial due to traffic restrictions. A 10 minute walk with my suitcase, not happy by the time I got to the hotel. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Room was... More

Our private tour guide from All Right Travel in Istanbul, booked us into this charming hotel immediately next the Hagia Sophia, in the heart of all the major sites. The staff is magnificent and eager to assist in any way possible to ensure a great stay. We spent three nights at the beginning of the trip in one room, a... More

Excellent location. Just behind Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace. Right on the tram line. Easy walk to Galata Tower. I stayed in a room with 2 single beds which was definitely on the small side, but rooms were very clean. Breakfast buffet is excellent with fresh fruits and salad, honeycomb dripping with honey.

After an emergency meant my 90yr old father and I had to find an additional night's accommodation in Istanbul on a few hours notice, the Ottoman Imperial was our place. Other than it was available we had no expectations, and it was simply wonderful. The service when we arrived, ill and bedraggled, was welcoming, polite and swift. We were quickly... More

The hotel is perfectly located, next to main attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum, Basilica Cistern or Blue Mosque. Nice and clean rooms. Very friendly support at the main desk and by the room service. Not to forget the super porter. He was outstanding!! The breakfast gives some opportunities to improve. In total great place to stay @ a wonderful city.

This is my first time visiting Istanbul from the United States and I was unsure what to expect. When we arrived at the busy Atatürk Airport, we were greeted by a driver and taken straight to the hotel. The Ottoman Hotel Imperial is a wonderful boutique hotel located centrally to every major sightseeing destination in Istanbul which makes it amazing... More

This hotel is in the most amazing location and just a stone's throw from everything you would want from the city. When we checked in the staff could not have been friendlier and although I'm sure they were busy they took time to sit with us and show us on a map all of the essential highlights of the city...

Great boutique style hotel with an amazing location in the heart of Sultanahmet. 5 of Istanbul's main attractions are within 1000 meters of the hotel. The Hagia Sofia is literally right across the street, Basillica Cistern is a one minute walk down the street, the Blue mosque, hippodrome and Topaki Palace are no more than a 5 minute walk in...

As everyone else has said, the location of this hotel is amazing, next to all the top attractions. The downside of this can mean that taxis and pre booked airport transport can be very delayed in heavy traffic. For everyday getting about this is not a problem as there is a tram stop close by which is simple to use... More

This hotel's excellent attention to detail and outstanding location helped make our stay in Istanbul a most memorable experience. A room on the 2nd or third floor facing Hagia Sophia Museum costs more but the spa bath/shower, double glazed windows (noise protection) and larger space certainly increase the comfort factor. The bed linen was luxurious. The hotel's dining and breakfast... More
