We selected the Osmanhan Hotel due to its location and various recommendations in tripadvisor and other guides (Merian). What we found was not only a very hotel but Turkish hospitality at its best.
We stayed in the Osmanhan Hotel for a long weekend. Despite the location – it is just a 5 min walk from the Blue Mosque – the hotel is located in a rather silent corner of Sultanahmet – so the location proofed to be well selected. The rooms (we had #32) are reasonably spacious, clean, nicely decorated and contain everything one needs for an extended weekend trip.
For me the best ‘thing’ in the hotel was the roof terrace on which we benefitted of breakfasts, the watching of sunrise and sunset, the boat traffic into the Bosphorus and moments of introspection and relaxation.
For breakfast we were spoiled by lovely Fadima (who also speaks very well French) – each day she prepared on place some new treasures.
But all the features of Osmanhan Hotel are nothing compared to the hospitality we experienced here in this oasis. This hospitality is shown by all staff members – but it is induced by the manager of the house Fatih Ozer. From the very first email contacts to the last good bye we felt at home in Turkey from the very first moment. Fatih helped us to discover in the very touristy area of ‘Sultanahmet’ places that are still frequented by the Turkish population, gave us tips for our visits and trips and made us rather feel like friends than guests.
Thank you very much – Claudia and Michael
PS: Luckily we trusted tripadvisor – as the hotel website does not well describe the hotel.
