“Excellent hotel in Sultanamet, Istanbul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We stayed our last two nights in Istanbul at this charming hotel in Sultanamet, close to the Arastas Bazaar. Our room was lovely, on the 6th floor, with a jacuzzi tub. The roof views are almost 360 degrees and are beautiful. The staff was very helpful, even stored a bag of ours for 12 days. The only thing that wasn't quite up to par with the rest of the hotel was the breakfast. After 18 nights in Turkey experiencing many breakfasts, we felt that for the price of the hotel, the breakfast could have been a little better. But we still highly recommend the Sumengen.

Although short (1 night) yet it was really exciting to stay at Sumegen Hotel: the friendliness of the staff, the cozy atmosphere, the nearness to splendid historical landmarks, and the quick on-spot upgrade we enjoyed at the moment we entered the hotel gave us a very exciting and coformable feeling that lasted & will last until we make our next visit to Sumengen Hotel, Istanbul.

A travel advisor recommended the Sumengen Hotel to my wife: great location, very nice hotel and great value. We were advised that the "special room" with the hot tub and view of the water was worth the extra money(see photo). It definately was. The location is very nice and walking distance to the major sites as well as good shopping(see Google Earth photo). Walking distance is very important in this area as traffic often doesn't move. A Taxi driver actually suggested that we get out of the cab and walk the rest of the way back to the Hotel. We did and had fun shopping. I especially appreciated the very nice breakfast in the Hotel: I was very surprised how nice it was; it was a great way to start the day. If we get a chance to back to Instanbul, we won't even think about where to stay, we will try to get this room again.

Our first visit to Istanbul we spend a 3-night stay at Sumengen and it was the best accommodation decision we made. Sumengen has a very welcoming approach and is situated walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, tram line stop, City Windows Hop-on-hop-off pick-up point and many other lovely places of intrest, cafes and restaurants.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed a good breakfast every morning overlooking the Marmara Sea. The bedroom was very clean and welcoming with it's Ottoman style interior and so was the rest of the Hotel.
We would definitely recommend Hotel Sumengen! Thanks to all the staff for making our stay a very memorable one.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor room 205 - no seaview.
