You could not hope for a better location - right next to the Hagia Sofia. But be careful choosing a room !!! The Standard rooms on the second floor are tiny and in great need of an upgrade. We chose to upgrade to a 3rd floor superior room which had an over the roofs view of the Blue Mosque. We... More

from the juice offered at check in to the desk staff's help with bookings, this hotel had a warm welcome and great location. We were very happy with the rooms facing the tram line, double glazing meant the room was as noisy as our london flat - easy sleep. These rooms have the added feature of a birds eye view... More

We spent 5 days here on our Istanbul private tour. The location is perfect, right behind the Hagia Sophia on a pedestrian street that leads to the center of the district. The only warning it that the rooms, at least ours, were quite small and took some cleverness to deal with our luggage and things. And the only useable seating... More

you cannot beat the location of this hotel and our experience with the staff was wonderful. As a prior poster noted-there can be a slight sewer smell in some areas-mostly the back wing off on the back I think. We were not in the room enough for it to matter that much as the hotel is SO CLOSE to ALL... More

Really wonderful place to stay in the Sultanahmet! The staff are friendly and most helpful. The room was spotless. The rooms have a safe, not that we attempted to use it. Really great breakfast offering from 7:30-10:30 daily.

Small boutique hotel with friendly staff. You cannot beat the location. Close to everything (no more than 5 min walk to all the great historic sites) but just off a side street making it nice and quiet. Not much of a bar scene and there isn't really a place to sit outside, which is my only complaint. Rooms are average... More

Our travel agent booked us into the Ottoman Imperial Hotel as her second choice after the Sultana Hotel in Istanbul, which was fully booked during the September high season. That is a first clue to the reason for this less than stellar rating. The hotel's location is superb, no question, for walking to the principal attractions of the Old City.... More

The Matbah restaurant in also excellent and remarkably good value, Also the staff are also very very helpful. If you are looking for a well... More

We returned back to Istanbul, having previously stayed in new town. No comparison !!! So much better holiday, and loved Istanbul old town. Hotel is perfectly placed. Really warm reception, and all services. Definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is so close to all the major attractions in Sultanahmet and a tram ride away from the Grand Bazaar and Taksim. The rooms were very comfortable and staff are quite friendly.
