The hotel is small, but very good. Great service, great room - we had room on the top floor which gave us a view of the river, and looking back, you could just about see the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The room was good & my wife loved the spa. The only downside was the breakfast - not great,...

A hotel suite is normally means a connected series of rooms to be used together and not a single room as was provided. I booked what was described as Suite Executive Room and expected what I would normally get from a suite: a separate bedroom and other living area. I wanted a larger room because I was staying 8 days....

Dear All It is known by everyone that satisfaction is a relative concept. In addition people may like black or white maybe both. This is a matter of preference. People always have the right to choose, if someone do not love a place, instead of staying 8 nights, they don't stop there even for 1 minute.We are in the hotel...

Fabulous position just behind the Blue Mosque, in friendly street filled with local character. Very friendly and professional staff with informative advice for all matters be it conference location, restaurants or districts to visit. Great traditional foaming Turkish massage. Much better than my last choice of accommodation in Istanbul despite same 5 star rating. Executive twin room was spacious compared...

We had the pleasure of being guests at the Best Western Premier Regency Suites, Sultanahmmet, Istanbul during May 2009. We had been on Seabourn Spirit for three weeks and were absolutely spoiled. The pampering continued at the Best Western Premier Regency Suites for a further four days. The rooms were spacious and clean, the service from the staff at all...

The hotel was very good. Clean with very friendly staff. The room was a good size and was very clean. The location is great, just a few minutes walk to the Hagia Sophia and the Blue mosque. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the old city.

I stayed at the Best Western Premier with two friends from April 25 through May 3, 2009. This is a relatively new hotel on a busy, primarily pedestrian street in the Old City within a few blocks of the major Sultanahmet tourist sites. A tram system stop is located about 3 blocks away, but we found ourselves walking to the...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Istanbul Art De Vivre!Located at he heart of Istanbul between Europe and Asia, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa commands an extensive view of a relatively small area that has nonetheless witnessed 2000 years of the history of some of the richest civilisations humanity has ever known: Ancient, Greece the Roman Empire, The Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire!It is only a few steps from the Blue Mosque, Saint Sophie and Topkapi Palace. The hotel, a lovely mansion built in 1905, is a listed historic monument today. The elegance of its origin is still amply visible in the neo-classical moulding on the facade and the solid wood or beige Bursa granite floors. Numerous details and features in the house bear witness to a world of such sophistication that its sultans are portrayed holding a flower.The hotel's rugs, like the motifs on the walls, seem to have stepped straight out of the Topkapi Palace.As century old traditions require, the hammam of the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa features a suite of three rooms with different functions: hot room, warm room and cool room.The hotel is equally dedicated to maintaining state-of-the-art international hotel standards, which rather than detracting from its historic past, leave its guests free to savour and appreciate this heritage.In this way, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa distils the quintessence of Istanbul's distinctive lifestyle, particularly from its 16 suites:the dome of the Blue Mosque surrounded by six slender minarets, the monotonous chant of the muezzin, the enchanting hush that reigns over the city in the morning, the sweetly scented Topkapi Park, the view of Bosphorous or the Marmara Sea on which the Prince's Islands seem almost to float or its mouth-watering exotic cuisine, etc. The justly dubbed 'Golden Horn', which the hotel overlooks, sumptuously sums up the inexhaustible wealth of this matchless location. ... more   less
