We stayed at Sultans Royal for a week earlier in March this year. It was a family trip to celebrate my dad`s 70-s birthday, first time in Istanbul for all of us and staying at Sultans Royal became one of the best experiences & great memories from this trip. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, “home feel” kind of place to stay with a great value for the money – this hotel is a perfect choice. We chose it mostly based on the traveler`s reviews & couldn’t have been happier, it ticked absolutely all boxes for us. Easy to use website/ reservation system with a very personalized & proper follow-up from the hotel (we booked directly on their website), airport transfer (free from Ataturk Airport) was there on time to pick us up at 5:00am on Sunday, the hotel is very new (complete renovation less than a year ago) so rooms even if on a smaller side were very clean, comfortable and had everything necessary, quiet neighborhood, really nice daily breakfast buffet and fantastic location – 8-10 min walk to Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia & tram as well as many good restaurants & coffee shops. And I have to say that for us the biggest gem of the hotel was definitely its staff, all the lovely people working there that made us feel so welcomed, almost like we were staying at home with family & friends. The most attentive & friendly people ever, you made our trip to this beautiful city even more special, and your hotel totally deserves all the great reviews given here on Trip Advisor.

Stayed here for my 30th Birthday. We were greeted and welcomed from the moment we arrived. Staff were helpful and thoughtful. Our room on the 3rd floor was open, airrey, bright and modern with our own balcony too. Location was perfect, close to the main tourist spots but in a quiet street. Handy for everything.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It is a great location as it is within easy walking distance of all the historical sites but is on a quieter street. We had a room on the 3rd floor which had its own outdoor terrace with a table and chairs. The room was a good size,modern,clean with all the standard amenities. The breakfast provided was good and had lots of variety. The staff at the front desk were very helpful. On our 1st day Ahmed gave us an orientation of the city which was very useful. My only confusion now after reading other reviews is that we were not offered a free transfer from airport but paid for both ways so I would clarify this. Definitely would recommend Sultans Royal Hotel!

Been there in March 2012. Rooms are not very spacious, but very clean and have all necessary amenities. Bathroom is convenient (no problems with the shower). There is no heating (except air-conditioning), so there is a choice between fresh air and comfortable temperature.

Location is perfect for Old City, but is quite far from main entertainment area (Taksim), though tram stop is within 5 minutes walk from the hotel.

Most of the personnel is very helpful and would help you whatever you need. All personnel is English-speaking. Breakfast is ok. Wifi is free and speed is very good.

If you pay in cash you will get 7% discount, also there is a free transfer from the airport if you stay for 3 nights or more.

Room Tip: Room on the first floor is ok, there is no noise from the street

We stayed at this hotel for 2nights. It was a little difficult to find but location was good.
Receptionists was friendly and gave us much information for sightseeing. Thanks to them, We really enjoyed Istanbul efficiently.

The Sultans Royal is located in walking distance to the Blue Mosque and other points of interest. Many excellent restaurants are located nearby. There is a taxi stand approximately 100 feet from the hotel, though the taxi drivers were certainly the worst part of Istanbul. The tram station is also close and only about an 8 minute walk away.

The hotel was very clean and was recently remodeled. The rooms are an adequate size and larger than many other rooms found in Europe and Asia. I am not sure how the views are from other rooms but our view was the back of an old building. Free breakfast was provided downstairs every morning.

The customer service is outstanding. All personnel at the front desk went out of their way to assist us with everything we needed. In particular, Ersin was extremely friendly and an excellent source of information. We have added a picture of him at the front desk of the lobby.

The hotel provided a free hotel transfer from the airport and would have provided a round trip transfer if we had stayed for 7 days. We thought it was an excellent value at $88/night considering the location, quality, customer service, and complimentary airport transfer.
