I cannot compliment this hotel enough. Centrally located and within minutes walking distance from all the main attractions in Sultanahmet (1 min walk to the Blue Mosque using the shortcut!) The staff were very friendly and more than willing to go out of their way for us. The hotel is very clean and each of the rooms are named after a city instead of having room numbers.
The staff are very knowledgeable about the local attractions and assisted us in finding great deals on excursions and even helped book us in for a Hamam bath at an alternative place for half the price offered in the local Hamam!
We were always welcomed with tea on arrival which went down as a treat in a cold January especially on the days it snowed. Breakfast selection was very good considering the size of the hotel and Ahmed was always on hand to make us fresh omelettes or to cater to any other needs. We had a very quick response to all the room service requests and the bedding, towels and rooms were cleaned daily. There was a beautiful view of the Bosphorus from the rooftop breakfast room which was a great start to out day.
Our experience of Istanbul wouldn’t have been half as good if it hadn’t have been for the great hospitality. A very big thank you to Cengiz, Ahmed (who also become known as MATRIX), Mr Maşallah and his brothers who make a group of 3 girls feel so at home!
We will be sure to visit Istanbul again and will pick Hotel Broken Columns every time.
