“The best Istanbul hotel I have stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I have visited Istanbul 15-20 times and stayed in 7-8 different hotels. Yasmak Sultan Hotel is clearly my favourite after my last visit. Friendly, service-minded and professional staff. Personal follow-up by very nice guest-relations manager. Excellent food in marvellous roof-top restaurant. Clean room and bathroom. No traffic noise, slept very well. Very close to tramway station Gülhane and all major Sultanahmet tourist attractions.- Highly recommended!

Room Tip: 5th floor was practical and the view was very good.

Our stay in Istanbul was enhanced by staying at the Yasmak Sultan. The location, the helpful staff, the amenities, the restaurant, and the proximity to public transport all made it ideal for us. We can't say enough about the helpfulness of Guest Relations Manager Zumre. She was full of suggestions, explanations, solutions, and just delightful. We enjoyed the pool, although we didn't take advantage of the spa. Breakfast was generous and varied and the view from the top magnificent. We were able to walk to almost all the sights we wanted to see in the old town, and public transport (tram, bus, ferries) were all easily accessible.

We enjoyed very much our 4 night stay in this excellent hotel. Its location is ideal for seeing the most famous sights or catching the tram to other points of interest. The food provided in the roof-top restaurant was delicious - very good breakfast buffet and an excellent dinner menu with superb fish dishes. The hotel staff was efficient, helpful and friendly - particularly the charming Guest Relations Officer Zumre who could not have been more helpful. I would recommend this hotel as a comfortable base for those visiting this fascinating city. RMC

We had a wonderful time in Istanbul, the Hotel was fabulous, breakfast unbelievable with so much choice, and all facilities were of an extremely high standard and very clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the wonderful Guest Relations Manager Zumre was a real key to our enjoying the city of Istanbul in the short time we had there. We would highly recommend this Hotel if you are wishing to visit Istanbul.

Didn't really appreciate the central location of the hotel until day 4, as we were on an organised tour for first 3 days and had this day to ourselves. We realised just how close we were to the tram, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque & Spice Market etc. Staff at reception, in restaurant and generally around the hotel were helpful, courteous and fluent in English. There was free Wi-Fi and I could use the internet in the business centre to check in online and get a print-out free of charge. Food in the roof top Olive Restaurant was excellent - we had breakfast every morning and 2 superb evening meals at compatible prices to restaurants nearby, with an amazing view of the city day and night. As we were checking out at 5am and would miss breakfast, a breakfast box was given to us to take to the airport. Zumre (our Turkish Meercat), the Guest Relations Manager, is a real asset to the Yasmak Sultan Hotel. She was extremely helpful when we were planning the non-tour part of our visit and gave us great advice on where to go and how to get there. Her bubbly personality and super sense of humour made conversations with her interesting and great fun. On our return to our rooms on our last night, we were thrilled to find a lovely surprise and a personal card wishing us a safe journey home. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and would stay here on another visit.
