lovely hotel, large room and pretty. Although, the bar has been turned into a juice bar; Concierge was VERY helpful and recommended guide who truly made the trip memorable; location is perfect - easy walk to everything city center.

beautiful hotel with a glamorous entrance and reception area. Staff couldn't be more helpful when we arrived. The room was in a quiet spot, clean and comfortable with a laptop safe, minibar, air conditioning and TV.
The rooftop terrace was a delight and we ate breakfast there each morning. Nice selection of breakfast regalia. Take ur photos up on the top terrace!
This is a hidden gem in a quiet cobbled avenue away from the hustle and bustle.
5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque and other historical attractions. Restaurants 2 minutes away.

Will definitely return to this turkish hotel.

This was a great find and we spent a terrific three nights in the Sultanhan as a prelude to a 10-day cruise on the Aegean. The lobby was warm and inviting, in an old-school European sort of way, and the front desk folks were very friendly and helpful. The English was pretty good, but could have been a little better, in our opinion. The room and bath were fine: clean, bright and nice size. The rooftop restaurant had absolute stunning views over the Sea of Marmara and the Bosporus to the north, and the Istanbul skyline all around. Domes, minarets and an enchanting skyline...especially at sunrise and sunset. The included breakfast buffet was inviting, with a nice array of cheeses, cold-cuts and fruit. Some unusual but tasty items too, including olives, dried fruits, and lots of things to put in your yogurt. No bagels (duh!) but some interesting baked goods. But the location was the key advantage to the Sultanhan: a quiet street (didn't hear much traffic or the frequent calls to prayer but just a short walk to everything, including the main tram line. This was a great spot to be in, and it made our Istanbul visit a pedestrian joy,.

This hotel is beautiful and worth the price, the rooms are large and clean,the location is amazing, the staff are lovely and helpful, the breakfast is nice too with a large variety of choice, the only thing I noticed is that you cannot hear the Adaan (muslim call to prayer) so some people might prefer this.

I hardly know where to begin on this one. Location? The Sultanhan Hotel is within easy walking distance to all of the major attractions from the Grand Bazaar to the Topkapi Palace. Rooms? When you look around, you KNOW you're in Turkey. It's not some sterile, soulless chain hotel. Breakfast? Their roof-top buffet breakfast room offers a huge selection of delicious options. Ambiance? In walking the half block from the Divan Yolu (main drag through the tourist area) you go from near chaos to peaceful serenity. Cleanliness? This place is spotless. We took the back stairs instead of the elevator from the Roof Terrace to our room. Back stairs tend to not be very attractive. This one consists of marble white floors and walls that glimmer and look like they were just polished. Friendly? When I commented that my iPad worked in the lobby, but not in my room, the clerk at the desk dropped what he was doing and came to my room and fixed the problem in minutes. And finally, the decorations on the walls in the lobby, halls, and rooms could easily be hanging in a textile museum. BTW, when other hotels claim to be within walking distance of the main attractions, they often omit the fact that the walk is up steep, winding streets. The Sultanhan is pretty much at the same level as most of the attractions. Plus, it's 5 minutes away from a tram stop which provides access to the Galata Bridge and the New Town. Yes, we really liked it!

This hotel has a perfect location for a visit to Istanbul. Very central, within walking distance to all the main sights...Ayia Sofia, the Blue Mosque. the Grand Bazaar and yet perfectly quiet...in a pedestrianised street. Spotlessly clean, and with a wonderful staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views
