“Great place to stay in Instanbul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Whenever you go to a new city in another country you are always apprehensive about what you will find but our stay at Sultan Tughra helped put our worries to rest. We received a very warm welcome and the staff worked hard to meet our every need. The hotel itself has a unique charm and is quite comfortable and clean. Breakfast was made to our order every morning. The location is within walking distance to the main sites. All the staff were very attentive but we must make a special note for Mert. His attention to detail and his wonderful sense of humour made our stay a truly memorable experience.

We absolutely loved this place. Everything was spot on. There is a character that is easy to indulge in! Breakfast was rich. Hospitality of the management team was of high standard. Hotel is well situated and you will not be far from main attractions in the city. Well done!

We stayed three nights at the Sultan Tughra hotel and had a wonderful welcome from Mert, who was always ready to help. He has an excellent sense of humour.
The hotel is small with commensurately small bedrooms but with everything we needed and a comfortable bed. The hotel is ideally placed for all the main istanbul attractions - 10 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque. The decor is remarkable - very ornate. Breakfast was very good, the Turkish coffee which Mert produced with no encouragement was delicious and there was a constant supply of Turkish Delight.
An ideal place to stay while visiting the sights of Istanbul.

My friend and I just came home from an exciting trip to Istanbul. We stayed three nights at Sultan Tughra. The staff was helpful and very patient with our ongoing questions about sights and how to get to... they were so sweet to us and we felt welcomed.
The rooms are clean, not that big but spacious enough for a pleasant stay. Besides that the decor underlines the story of the Ottoman Empire. Red carpets, glitter and gold.
The hotel is perfectly located in the charming and quiet area of Sultanahmet. Close to the grand sights such as The Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar etc.

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor. The basement rooms are bigger but have smaller windows.

I recently stayed at this hotel and from beginning to end I had a great experience. The staff including Mr, Mert was excellent. He made sure that every guest was taken care, whether it was booking a tour or arranging for a car to take you to the airport customer service is their number one priority. This hotel reminds me of the bed & breakfast hotels we have here in California. The decor and cleanliness of the overall hotel was perfect. My room was downstairs from the main floor. In spite of being close to the stairs it was almost always quiet. My room was small as most rooms in Istanbul are but it was just me so I didn't mind. Every morning I was greeted by Mr. Mert who remembered by name and knew exactly what I wanted to eat including the very delicious Turkish coffee. Since the hotel is off the main tourist street you don't have to listen to the street vendors or drunken tourist shouting in the middle of the night. All in all I enjoyed my trip to Istanbul as well as my stay at the Sultan Tughra.

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights here during our first ever Istanbul trip. The place is well decorated with Ottoman colours and furniture. Tughra means the Seal of the Ottoman Sultans which is depicted in the monogram of the hotel. The rooms are a bit compact but good enough to spend the night in. We were first placed in the basement but requested a room on the second floor which the Manager agreed to. The bed was very comfortable and within a 19 bed hotel it was very quiet at night. The hotel is in a little alleyway devoid of any vehicle traffic and noisy neighbourhood. The trek to the core of all the attractions takes about 10 minutes up the hilly terrain so better to be in your runners. The rooms were smartly cleaned daily and the shower, AC and WIFI connection were excellent. The three storey hotel does not have an elevator. The breakfast in the spacious dinning hall was adequate and one could order any type of freshly made eggs. Mert, the young manager was very helpful, spoke good English and always had a smile on his face. Right behind the hotel through the alleyway is the Bosphorus seafront. Make sure you walk along it for some fresh breeze. This hotel is not a bad place if you can get a good deal depending on the season.

Quaint hotel with interior decor in traditional Turkish style. Our room on the 1st floor was't the most spacious , but it was always well cleaned and bed comfortable with lavish furnishings. Staff warm and friendly and in particular Mert or Matt who is always helpful. Hotel located within walking distance of all major attractions in the Sultanamet area.
