an advice ! do not book in this hotel, go your way, you will be relocated to the blue hotel while you have to pay at the santa sophia. Don't waste time in this hotel, it gets better and cheaper. Run away if you are with your family or girlfriend

The hotel is perfectly located, also reachable by taxi, and the rooms are clean, with comfortable beds. There is also a fridge and the breakfast is ok. It is perfect for a couple or friends with not expensive budget to visit the old part of the city. I recommend it. However, booking.com does not work in Turkey, so you may need to find another way to book a room.

I have stayed at this hotel several times during my business trip and my experience has been superb. The staff treat you like friends and family and help with everything especialy Mr Diyar..The manager are excellent friendly people. The rooms are very comfortable. All in all this is the place to live in Istanbul.

I am not too demanding but I am very disappointed with the attitude of some front office people who are less professional in working more proactively in greeting. I am very grateful to Sahet, Dilek and his mother, Koan and I forgot the name of the house keeping person who is another, Mr. Muhammad (manager) in appreciating guests. I know this is a three-star hotel but at least please care more about guests, where guests bring profit for your company to work, bring the good name of Santa Sophia, especially if we stay 20 days at the hotel. Sorry for my advice because even though it is a 3 star hotel but if the service is good it will feel more comfortable than a 5 star hotel
