“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Stayed five nights at the Sura. I can't say enough about it. Central location, very close to Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia and a short walk to the Grand Bazaar. Many good restaurants very close by including the hotels own restaurant.
Concierge was great, worked hard to please.
All the staff was great and helpful.
Our room was really nicely decorated and modern.
I would definately recommend this hotel, good value.
Next time I'm in Istanbul, I will definately stay at the Sura.

Room Tip: Upon arrival our taxi driver had a hard time finding the hotel, directions in Turkish are a good ide...

Been there last month .. it was for 5 nights; I had two connected rooms in the 2nd floor. Lovely clean spotless room. Modern amenities and great service. The food; breakfast was excellent plenty of option with fresh juice and bakery and an eggs station. We had dinner at the Sura Kebab House it was just great fresh and testy. Location is perfect a few steps from Aya Sofya – Topkappi Palace – blue Mosque – Grand Bazar is about ten minutes away. I really recommend it for family and couples as well. I am sure coming back to Sura Hotel.

The location is excellent with 5 minutes walking distance from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, hippodrome, Asrata Bazaar, Tram Station, Topakapi Palace and 15 min walking from Spice Bazaar and Grand Bazaar. Well designed hotel, stylish and sleek. Rooms are fairly sized though a bit congested if you are triple sharing. The reception staff and concierge are all nice and very helpful for all your needs. The only let down for our stay was the room service and house keeping. It took 5-6 calls and one and a half hrs to get a cup of milk and some tea bags. As our room was triple sharing, everything should have been 3 in number. However, they always kept 2 cups, 2 glasses, 2 towels etc.. I had to call up couple of times for the third ones which actually should have been taken care of automatically. Over all, I would recommend this to a couple, double sharing guests considering they improve their room service or that is not a botheration for the guests staying. Breakfast spread was nice and fulfilling.

Room Tip: Couples can take rooms with a bathtub in the room and a balcony overlooking the garden.

We stayed for 4 nights on our trip to Istanbul and Cappadocia, and the hotel was fantastic. It is on a street that, we discovered, was the best location in Sultanamet. The design of the hotel was ecclectic and fun and the staff were great! They went out of their way to prepare the perfect "surprise" evening for my wife's birthday when I asked them to prepare dessert for two in the gazebo in their garden. It was an unforgetable ending to her birthday in Istanbul and our trip to Turkey...we both loved the hotel and would recommend it others...Great, great hotel.

Room Tip: We felt that the terrace rooms in the back, overlooking the garden, were worth the upgrade.

We only stayed in this hotel for a couple of days, however, found it to be outstanding. They have done a fantastic job on the decorations of the hotel, and the rooms were surprisingly big. We had been cautioned about staying in the old city, due to being woken by the call to prayer - however, we did not expereince this problem during our stay at Sura. The staff are very friendly, and offer great advice. Also, the restaurant staff are friendly and helpful in advising wht to choose from the menu. The location is also outstanding, really in the heart of the main attractions in the old city. Plus, manay different restaurants to choose from within 100m of the hotel. All in all, I would definitely recommend.

Note: as the hotel is only 1 year old, and is not in a main street, I would recommend you bring a printed map to show to a taxi driver when you first go to the hotel.

This hotel was absolutely lovely - from the gentleman who checked me in through the helpful staff, excellent view and comfortable room. Based on other reviews I upgraded to a garden view balcony room which was WELL worth the money - I had a great view of the Blue Mosque. As a female traveling alone I was concerned with location and safety - I felt extremely safe and walked to everything - the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Cistern, Grand Bazaar, etc. Highly recommend. The room decor isn't exactly my taste but it did seem very Turkish. Daily breakfast was good but not amazing. Only complaint on sleep quality (which will happen anywhere in Istanbul) is that you are woken up by the Call to Prayer before dawn. The room was exceedingly quiet other than that.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the room w/ balcony.
