What makes Sultan House so great is the staff. As they said, "think of this as home, not a hotel." Everything we asked of them, they did with a smile. They were full of suggestions, help and humor. My daughter stayed at a nearby youth hostel and they welcomed and helped her, even allowed her to nibble breakfast, without a thought. The hotel is about 2 blocks from the main square in Sultanahmet, near Topkapi and Hagia Sophia. You do need to be prepared for very small rooms, and tiny bathrooms, though. You can not get two people in the bathroom. The bed's blankets don't cover a 6 foot person. It is very old style European, with cramped accommodations, but clean. They serve breakfast, but don't have a restaurant, just an eating area. No pool or exercise. Again, just a classic "vertical" small European style hotel. So, even though the room was small, the ambiance, vibe and people made it a wonderful stay.
