“Nice cosy hotel with friendly staff”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

We stayed 6 days in Hotel Saba Sultan Sultanahmet. The location of the hotel is super - in the middle of Sultanahmet, two steps away from the main tourist attractions.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel has only 17 rooms, so that the atmosphere there is really cosy. We felt home there.

We would definitely recommend Hotel Saba Sultan Sultanahmet to our friends!

Very pleasant visit. Rooms very large, well presented and clean.Very close to all attractions and transport was within walking distance.The views over the Bosporus were exceptional from the terrace.The staff were really friendly, specially Tubay, who went out of her way to help.
The breakfast was good except for missing fried eggs.Would love to visit again one day...

The hotel has a perfect location in the historic old city centre. Many sight seeing attractions are within reasonable walking distance. A friendly welcome awaited us on arrival and indeed every day. We also enjoyed the breakfasts.

I'm delighted, you had such a lovely time and enjoyed your breakfast.Even now, we are making fresh pancakes everymorning according to your wishes.
We are delighted to hear that you found our welcoming team to be attentive and friendly.
We wish for you to think of Saba Sultan as a home away from home.

I stayed at the Saba Sultan hotel for a week! And it's one of the best decisions I've ever made! Walking distance to all the attractions and restaurants in the Sultanahmet area. Its the perfect hotel if you're on a sightseeing holiday but also want a hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful rooms that are kept clean and tidy.
Breakfast is in buffet style every morning with a good selection of cold meat, cheese, fruits, dates and syrup etc. And oh! omelette is available on request! You can either have your breakfast in the well presented breakfast room or at the rooftop terrace overlooking the Bosphorous and breathtaking view of the Blue Mosque and the Topkapi
Palace!
The staff are excellent especially Tuba and Hilmi whom I found to be very helpful and friendly! Many thanks too to Younis and the housekeeping staff for all their hardwork.
I will definitely stay at the Saba Sultan again! And I recommend you do!

We visited in august of this year. found the hotel easily and it has great location for sightseeing. just around the corner from the fantastic Sultan ahmet. All the staff were Very helpful and always pleasant. good varied buffet breakfast, and we even made it to the roof top to enjoy our first breakfast! ( bit of a climb in you have young children, but well worth it ). the rooms were very clean and everything worked perfectly. One staff member on the desk booked a show for us on the front row, I was delighted.
