“Our strong recommendation”
Reviewed November 8, 2009

We stayed here three nights and were very pleased with this new hotel. Great location in Sutanahment (the historic distrcit) - perfect for seeing all the major sights by foot. Lots of restaurants and shops on the surrounding streets. Very, very clean and well run property. Comfortable beds. Excellent service and friendliness from staff. Very good breakfast on a terrace with a view. WiFi in rooms and they let you use a computer, if you don't bring your own. Also, the price is very good when compared to comprable properties.

Stayed here for three nights having stayed at their 'sister' hotel the Agora the first night when the Osmanhan was full. From the very start Fatih, the manager was friendly and helpful, offering tips and advice to us. On our last night he upgraded us to another room at no cost. The rooms are small, but tastefully decorated with free Wi-Fi, air-con, flat screen TVs with several English Language channels, the bathrooms are recenly renovated and evrything is very clean. Breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely - wih lots of choice and there was an inside section with bifolding glass doors so that the views could be enjoyed indoors when the weather was not so good. Excellent location only a five minute walk from the Blue Mosque and about seven minutes from the tram stop where you can quickly find your way all over Istanbul. A follow up e-mail from Fatih on our return to England is yet another example of the personal service that you get at this small guest house. We hope to return soon and would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here. Excellent location; new, clean property -- very well run by nice, helpful people. A good value for your money. Good breakfast selection. Our room was rather small, though -- and there is no elevator, if that is a problem for you. (You can get a lower floor room, I suppose, but breakfast is on the terrace.) So, it may not be for everyone, but all in all a good choice for this area, since the location is perfect for walking out to the major sights.

We had a great 5 days in Istanbul and Osmahan Hotel and Fatih were a big part of that!
Great, relaxing place to return to when the hours of walking around Istanbul sights and markets gets too much.

Breakfast on the roof-top terrace is really a GREAT way to start the day

We would highly recommend the Osmanhan as the best place to stay in Istanbul. The service from Fatih on the front desk was excellent. Fatih spoke fluent English and couldn't help enough. We arrived a day early and he did everything possible to find us a room elsewhere in Istanbul as the Osmanhan was full. The room was lovely, and the open air breakfast terrace had amazing views over the Sea of Marmaris. We were allowed to take our own wine and beer onto the terrace in the evenings. Location was excellent - close to all the main attractions and restaurants - about 5 mins walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. The only issue we found was it was a little noisy outside our window at nights, as our corner seemed to be an informal cab rank.

I have only positive things to say about the service at Osmanhan Hotel! Fatih was so good and helpful to us. He is EVER so accommodating! The room was very clean, and everything worked. Its close-in location in Sultanahmet made touring on foot a pleasure. And the Turkish breakfast on the top-floor, open-air terrace with views onto the Sea of Marmara was a treat each morning. But I want to mention the service again: Fatih is the consummate host -- considerate, pleasant, and helpful!! My wife and I enthusiastically recommend the Osmanhan Hotel to anyone visiting the Sultanahmet district of Istanbul.

I stayed in this hotel for 5 night towrads the end of October 2009. I had to go to Istanbul on business and a work colleague recommended this great hotel to me. He was really raving about it so I decided to check it out. I really was quite pleased in having done so.
I must say that this Hotel is really quite superb. I was really happy with the standard of my room. The room was so spotless. The room had all the amenities that you would need. It had air conditioning , LCD TV with a built in DVD , telephone , wireless internet and a very nice ensuite bathroom. There was also of plently of clean fresh towels everyday.
The hotel is located right in the heart of the oldtown where all the top sites are. The Blue Mosque , Aya Sofia and Topkapi Palace are all within a 3 minute walk.
There is a very nice breakfast every morning on the roof topwitha fantastic view of the Mamara Sea and the Blue Mosque at the back. What lovely sites to see while eating breakfast.
I also made good use of the hotel facilities. It was very nice to unwind in the evening up on the rooftop . There were books to read and DVD's to watch on the big LCD tv while lounging around on the sofas. I found this to be very relaxing
The staff were really great too. They were extremely helpful when I asked about sites to see and excursions to do.
I would really recommend this as a good place to stay with visiting Istanbul whether it be for business or please.
I would really like to thank everyone especially Nadir , Volkan and Cem for really looking after me while I was there
