I stayed in villa Pasha 7 nights in December; the hotel has a great location in Sultanahmet, just few minutes walking to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and most important Istanbul’s historical attractions. I really liked the room’s furniture, decoration and cleanliness, the food and atmosphere of the hotel’s restaurant “Turquoise”, but of course the friendly and helpful hotel staff especially Mr Mehmet CAN, Fekri (Fiko) and Suat from the restaurant. Thanks for you all for the nice stay and will be back again inshallah :)

Villa Pasha was on a backpacker street behind the Blue Mosque, lots of bars and restaurants, lots of cheap hostels. So I wasn't sure what to expect. But Villa Pasha was surprisingly nice. The room was clean and someone had done it up in a basic fashion but with some care. The linens were clean, the comforter was really nice. Everything smelled clean and fresh. The bathroom was particularly nice. The cubicle was small but it had 3 functions. You could use the handheld shower, the rainforest shower (which comes straight down from the ceiling) or there were also 12 jets installed at varying heights that would spit water straight out at you. It was awesome. Hot water, relatively fast wifi (for Istanbul), big flat screen TV and just a 5-minute walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. Mehmet at the front desk was also very helpful. Free breakfast was good, too - unlimited fresh bread, 2 types of cheese, olives, honey, butter and jam.

We stayed here for a few days in October 2009. The rooms are nicely decorated with plany of space compared to a lot of other hotels in the area. The Hotel has a room terrace with a sea view (not a view of the mosque), but most hotels in the area have some kind of roof terrace. The Suite rooms are particularly good, however there is a very busy (and very good) restaurant downstairs, the suite we stayed in was directly above the restaurant which meant if we wanted an early night it was really rather noisy. The other room we stayed in at the back however was much better. The host is incredibly helpful and as i mentioned the restaurant downstairs is very good; in fact it may well have been the best food we had in Istanbul. I would recommend the hotel but i would say if you are looking for early nights then request a room at the back. Oh and don't expect much from breakfast....

Very nice hotel in Sultanahmet, great value and very friendly staff. Very clean and modern look. The greeter downstairs can be moody if you rub him the wrong way, but the owner and rest of the staff are extremely nice and friendly. Highly recommended.

I've been to Istanbul many many times over the years and used everything from 2* to 5*. This is my favourite. The location, in a pedestrianised street centrally located in Sultanahmet (old city), is perfect - minimal noise. The restaurant has a fantastic ambience and the staff are exceptionally nice - friendly but not overly pushy. Great food (for the aficionados, Iskender kebab is on the menu). Wi-fi enabled, which is important for me. Highly recommended with fond memories...
