The Osmanhan is the complete package: Central location, safe street, well appointed spotless small rooms with free tea/coffee/water, free wifi, beautiful bathrooms with a luxurious rainshower, excellent water pressure, towel heater. There is some minimal noise at night given its central location, but there was significantly less noise than other centrally located hotels, many of which seem to be built alongside an extremely noisy tram that runs from around 0545 to 0100. Luckily, at the Osmanhan we couldn't hear the tram at all. After staying at another highly ranked hotel in the Sultanahmet area, we thought the Osmanhan was an oasis of quiet in comparison. And all this comes at a fraction of the price of most of the surrounding hotels, many of which offer far less by way of amenities and value.
What makes the Osmanhan truly special though is the people. Hamit the owner, Fatih, and all the other staff that we interacted with were some of the most genuinely nice people we had ever met in our travels. For example, during my husband's first stay at the Osmanhan as a solo traveler, he had gone down to ask Fatih at the front desk what his favorite cheap eat restaurant was. Next thing he knew, Fatih had ordered a meal from there, had it sent up to my husband's room, and wouldn't hear of my husband paying him back. This trip was no different- they all truly strive to go above and beyond here. For that reason, this was our favorite hotel of our two week trip, even though one of the least expensive. Book early- they were so full that even two months in advance we could only get one night there.
Would also highly recommend their carpet shop, Motif Collection, if you are looking for one. We went to many during our trip and found that we got by far the best value there. There is no pressure to buy anything- the hotel never even mentioned the store to us other than in the standard booking confirmation email. You do get a 20% discount for being an Osmanhan guest.
