Sultans Royal Hotel is totally weak, narrow rooms, Heating is so bad. Unfortunately is not considered more than an apartment I don't know how this bad place receive a good evaluation unless there is cheating in the evaluation The hotel on a slope and far from Sultan Ahmed Mosque. In the Future I will never consider that bad place.

Loses points for a below par breakfast spread and no swimming pool. The location and service were up to scratch but the local restuarants over charge because of the number of hotels and tourists. You have to take a walk to find more reasonable eats. Convenient to reach the bazaar and landmarks.

The Sultans Royal is nothing like its name. It is a cozy inn with clean rooms, a decent breakfast, and very good and friendly service. Good location. Close to everything. Very reasonable, and many rooms have balconies.

I booked this hotel for myself and my husband to celebrate his birthday. The hotel was very well run, the staff very helpful and pleasant. The rooms were serviced every day. Breakfast was continental and available in a bright and airy breakfast room, which was reached by a lift.

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.
