“Great value and hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Fantastic location 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque, great yet simple breakfast, clean (smallish) room with a comfy bed and a nice shower, very friendly and thoughtful front desk staff! Easy access to the airport and to the central tram.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor, which we were concerned would be a bit noisy, but we didn't hear a...

We booked a family room at Sultans Royal Hotel from my country and were not disappointed. This hotel and the people of this hotel are truly amazing. They are extremely friendly with my 8 year old son and everyone is so nice. They give something extra which is difficult to explain but after the trip makes you truly satisfied to choose such a lovely hotel. The hotel helped us arrangingband suggesting several trips. Our room was at first floor, very nice. We took a extra bed for my 8 year old son but didn't need it as my son wants to sleep with us. But I would suggest to take that extra bed for small children as it is a bit crampy. We had most of our meals in Doy Doy restaurant, 2 min. Walk from the hotel, which was very nice as well. The best thing I liked in this hotel was the staff, they add something extra. Also everything worked well in the room and the toilets were clean and nice. If we come again in Istanbul we will definitely stay in this hotel

Room Tip: The hotel is in the quite area of the Sultanahmet street so room preference doesn't matter that...

This hotel had the friendliest staff I have ever experienced. I am happy to call them my friends after our 6 night stay at the hotel. The breakfast and housekeeping staff always welcomed you with a genuine, warm smile. Words cannot express how well I was treated, and It was a great feeling knowing that they would help me with anything, anytime, without question. All of the front desk staff were very helpful for finding attractions and restarants, and willing to have a conversation about anything. However, Ersin and Serkan went above and beyond this with their kindness and hospitality. Ersin gave me his email and phone number to contact him if we needed help with anything. We became good friends very quickly, and meeting him was one of the best experiences of our European travel that lasted over 5 weeks. He is truly a great person.

The hotel was very, very clean. Every inch was spotless! The rooms were great, they even painted the ceiling! They were large, with plenty of space to unpack. Most importantly, the wifi was very fast!! The bathroom was large as well with a blowdryer, shampoo and any amenity you would need. The mini-bar had very resonable prices, although we did not use it. The breakfast was fresh, diversified and delicious. Every type of food was available, and the breakfast room was very clean as well. Both the housekeeping and breakfast room staff were also very courteous and friendly.

The hotel was able to give me a late checkout, which helped a lot because I was running behind; the staff was willing to carry our bags and load the shuttle busses without asking for a tip. We used their shuttle busses coming from the SAW airport, and going home through the TAV and both shuttles were great. We were offered Turkish delight during our ride!

The value of the hotel was great. Having friendly staff is priceless, and the rooms and quality of the hotel should have demanded the highest prices in Istanbul, and yet The Sultans Royal was a fraction of the price.

Our room was very quiet, and the beds were very comfortable allowing us to have great sleeps to re-energize for the next day of seeing the beautiful city of Istanbul.

Room Tip: The room that we stayed in faced the back of the hotel and it was very quiet.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Sultans Royal Hotel. We found it situated in walking distance to the Blue Mosque and other tourist sites. The staff was very friendly, and helpful regarding tours and restaurants. Our room was clean, comfortable, and a delicious breakfast was served every morning. I usually woke up at 5am, and walked the streets without any worry. During our 5 day stay, I made friends with the hotel staff. One of the staff, Ersin, owned a '70s Fiat. I told him I like classic cars. We posed for pictures in front of the car, and he offered to give me a ride in it. On the day of our departure, we left at 6;30 am. The staff made us an early breakfast, which was very kind of them. Upon leaving, we hugged and shook hands with them. We had tears in our eyes. Because of the staff, it was the best hotel I've ever stayed in. They made our time in Istanbul truly enjoyable. If you go there, I suggest you dine at the nearby Seatanbul and The Babylon. Both have terraces overlooking Istanbul and the sea.
