“Excellent hotel, skip the hotel transfers...”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

The hotel is a must-stay while in the old city. The rooms are perfect for a vacation, where you spend little time in your room.

The service rivals that of a huge hotel. They will answer all your questions, give you advice, and do whatever they can to make your trip perfect.

With only 7 rooms, you feel as though you're their only concern.

The free breakfast was delicious each morning and had plenty of options.

The only negative is the hotel transfers. They cost 30 euros (currently 90+ TL). Skip this and take a taxi. Our taxi back to the airport was just as nice as the transfer van to the hotel and was only 40 TL. Even with traffic a taxi will be less than 50TL. There's a taxi stand 2 blocks from the hotel and a cab will be there in less than a minute. Save the 40-50 TL from the transfer price and do something else.

Everything else was perfect!!!

A lovely little hotel in an excellent location, just a few minutes from the big sites in old Istanbul-easy walking to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and beyond, yet tucked away. Our room was immaculate, with an exceptionally comfortable bed, much needed after walking round the city. Very good breakfast in a lovely, light rooftop room with terrace and sea views, and staff for whom nothing was too much trouble.

This hotel is a gem. The service was friendly and extremely helpful. Location is in the middle of the old quarter, so easy acess to Blue Mosque and other sites. Went to a recommendation from the hotel for dinner, around the corner, and the food was to die for. Rooms very comfortable and quiet but with heaps of character. Don't pass up this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up to get the view

Great location right in the heart of Sultanhamet, round the courner from the Blue Mosque and the Topkapi Palace: indeed, a strategical position to discover Istanbul.
We enjoyed the fact that it is not a huge hotel: a reasonable number of rooms and therefore people.
Staff was lovely and always happy to give a hand.
Our room was very clean and tidy.
My personal tip: take some time off and enjoy the magnificent view on the Bosphorus from the hotel terrace.
We'll definitely come back in our next trip to Istanbul. Cheers

My husband and I, plus another couple stayed in this hotel at the weekend for 2 nights while visiting Istanbul from London. We booked the hotel because of the great reviews on trip adviser and was not disappointed. The hotel owner was really friendly, offering us lots of tips and adviser on what to do, where to eat etc.

The hotel itself was very clean and in a great location for exploring. It's a 5 min walk to the blue mosque and 10min talk to lots of the other sites. It's also just of a main road which has lots of nice places to eat.

I would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone to stay in and would return again.

Room Tip: We loved Tria Elegance restaurant which the hotel recommended and would recommended to everyone else...

I was in Istanbul for just one night on a stop-over between Germany and the US, and I decided to stay at the Osmanhan based on tripadvisor reviews. I was very pleased with my choice. The staff are friendly and super-helpful. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet, and the hotel manager even upgraded me to a bigger room for free due to a cancelation. The taxi initially had some trouble finding the hotel so I recommend printing a map.

What a great little hotel! The reviews that this hotel receives on TripAdvisor are thoroughly deserved. The team that run the hotel are gracious, the rooms are comfortable, the local restaurant recommendations reliable and the position of the hotel is excellent. I was there on a short business trip, but for tourists, the hotel is well positioned in the old city of Istanbul. I can't see why anyone would want to stay in a more expensive or fancier hotel.

I very much look forward to my next visit.
