“Michelle ROCKS !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Been here for a couple of weeks, and it is very nice. And Michele is always helpful and friendly, and also VERY professional. The very best way to describe Michelle is, in my opinion, "On top of her game".
It is clean here and nice and quiet. Landscaped well and also convenient to transportation as well as food and shopping. GREAT location!!!!

Room Tip: Go for the King or King with double beds. It's quiet and secluded in building three. Roomy for...

A comfortable hotel within easy reach of the Istanbul attractions. Friendly staff and a great roof terrace with Panasonic views.Ideal for 3/4nights stays. The rooms were clean and comfortable although there were no views from the room but the roof terrace more than made up for this.Would definitely reccommend

An absolutely great hotel!
The view is awesome, next to the Blue Mosque and the hippodrome, with the Hagia Sofia in the distance, as well as a view of the Bosphorus where you'll see the boats pass by.

The breakfast was very elaborate: Fruits, vegetables, meats, cheese, cereals. (The only downside is that the coffee is really bad, more like coloured water, hardly any taste)

The room was clean, large, with big tv, airconditioning (with remote), big balcony with a great romantic view, watercooker, etc.
And the staff was great and really friendly.

The location is abolsutely suberb, you're right in the middle of the main attractions and the public transport at 5 minutes walk.

All in all a great hotel, with a great value for money.
I give the maximum rating (even though the downside being this close to the mosque is the muezzin at 6 in the morning on friday)

Room Tip: I cannot stress this enough: Get a room on the fourth floor at the front. There are only two and r...

The location is simply fantastic, next to the Blue Mosque. Our room had a balcony overlooking the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Marmara Sea.
The hotel is a bit old, but no problems.
Just outside the hotel, at right hand side, do not lose Denizen Coffee.

Room Tip: Request room with a sea view on the top floor (4th) because they have the best view. Rooms 402 and 4...

Hotel Saba is perfectly located for seeing the sights of Istanbul's old town. Down a little side street off the corner of the Hippodrome, it's close enough to all the highlights but quiet enough to get a good night's sleep. The view from the roof terrace is spectacular, overlooking the Blue Mosque and out over the Bosphorus. Our room was at the front of the hotel and was large and bright, but other rooms we saw had only internal windows and seemed a bit dark and poky. The hotel is clean and the reception staff friendly.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel are large and spacious and light, others are internal and a bit...

We chose the Saba hotel for its superb location and enjoyed the view from the top floor breakfast room every day. The staff was very helpful and gave good suggestions for short excursions and eating places. The breakfast was good and the beds comfortable, but for the Bosphorus view from our room we had to stick our head through a small window and look sideways. But hey, this is not a five star reconverted yali charging outrageous prices. It was just fine for us.
Thanks Meyrem and friendly colleagues. We will be back

we just got back from Istanbul and we stayed at the Saba Hotel, the locations was the best,
wall distance to Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Haga Sophia, restaurants, shopping and every
thing I highly recommend this small hotel if you are looking for location and affordability.
the staff was very helpful and the breakfast was fresh and lots of different dishes.
If we go back we stay there; that's for sure.

Room Tip: overlooking the Marmara sea and Blue Mosque.
