Good location, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Good breakfast in turkish terms. Aya Sofia 300 meters, Topkapi 400 meters, Blue Mosque 200 meters. Decent street, quiet surroundings. Although windows overlook on a train line not noisy. Seagulls are much noisier :)

The hotel is very clean, staff are so friendly and breakfast fast terrace is lovely. Highly recommended for honeymooners. Very close to the Istanbul historical area (hajia sofia, topkapi & sultanahmet).

The atmosphere may feel a little fussy, but if you're looking for a clean, well-run hotel in Istanbul, this is the place. Our room was clean, warm and comfortable. The breakfast room was on the enclosed rooftop. Heat lamps kept us comfortable as we enjoyed incredible views of the Sea of Marmara and a plentiful breakfast. We were able to... More

We stayed here over Christmas, and loved it. The wifi was a bit slow, but it was a temporary problem (and didn't affect our stay too much). The hotel is lovely, and the free breakfast each morning was delicious, served on the roof with a gorgeous view. Location is also a huge plus - very close to the Blue Mosque/Haggia... More

We stayed at this hotel between 30/12/14 and 2/1/15 and sad to say we weren't the slightest impressed with the level of service provided. For the price we paid TL300 per night, we were offered room 201 for the 3 of us. For a start, the door couldn't lock properly, the TV wasn't working (batteries in the remote were dented),... More

Large and spacious room and bathroom. Friendly staff who helped with the luggage and taxi bookings. Hotel interior is nicely decorated with paintings and furnishings. Located in a safe area close to the Arasta Bazaar. The only downside was the free buffet breakfast. It was the worst we've encountered during our travels in Turkey. The bread and the biscuits were...

The Romantic is a little hotel in the Old City of Istanbul a couple of blocks from some good restaurants, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. It's a location that is ideal for first time visitors to Istanbul as my wife and I were. Moreover, the roof top breakfast looks over the Bosporus, breathtaking. The rooms are clean and the... More

We stayed in this hotel in the Sultanahmet for 11 nights, making it our base for exploring Istanbul and vicinity. This is a small European-style boutique hotel on a quiet street filled with similar boutique hotels. As in all real estate, location matters. This one affords beautiful views of the Sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque from the pretty... More
