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. The hotel manager as well as all the receptionists are very kind and helpful, they will try their... More

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

The location of hotel was much ideal for me. I able to visit almost all historical places during my short trip. As hajia Sofia, blue mosque, museum, river trip and grand nazar was on walking distance. Single room was too small and even difficult to stay a long even for one person.

The Perfect Boutique Hotel (just the way you think of it) in the Perfect Central Location (walking distance from everywhere) with the Perfect Smiling and Helpful Staff. I travel a lot. And it is not common to find the above three things together. Last but not least... PERFECT BALANCE BETWEEN COST AND QUALITY- I LOVED IT

Bed was more comfortable then in most other well known hotels. Only negative thing to say- breakfast was lacking any meat other then cold cuts, and... More

This hotel cannot be beat for location, our room literally overlooked the Hagia Sophia and it was a short stroll to all the main attractions. We felt very safe here as two women traveling alone and the staff made us feel very welcome, especially Ozghar who was very helpful and welcoming to us. They provided good information and advice.

Great boutique hotel located close to the major sites! Staff were excellent and very helpful and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this hotel to all. The staff bent over backwards to help us - advising on what to do when and organizing taxis etc. First Class!
