I have stayed at the Hotel Sultania several times now and have found it nearly perfect on each occasion. I just returned from Istanbul and I'm planning a return soon, staying again at the Sultania. It is a medium sized hotel with very stylish rooms. It's a short walk to most of the major attractions and an easy distance to haul bags back from the Grand Bazaar. There are a wide variety of rooms and I think I've figured out my favorites. Each is clean, modern with an Ottoman flare and most of them have these beautiful glass shower enclosures with Ottoman harem scenes. The lighting in the room is also terrific with multiple configurations possible...much better than the usual overhead+lamp+vanity combo. The linens are lovely and the pillows were very comfortable. The room had a coffee maker, new windows that protect you from most of the street noise, good water pressure and the heating/cooling system was great. This comes in very handy as Istanbul can be cold/hot/cold all in the same day. Some of the rooms have balconies, some don't. I arrived late at night during the Taksim problems and the unbelievably accommodating staff let me look at 4 rooms before I made my choice. I extended my stay twice that week and due to prior bookings in my first room (a huge suite/family room) I moved to two more rooms during my stay. I must have been annoying but you'd never know it by the graciousness of the staff. They even showed me the Honeymoon Suite. As a solo traveler, it was a little too extravagant for even me, but I'll keep it in mind if my social situation changes! The breakfast offered both international and Turkish selections and served until 11 am. There was fruit in the lobby and on a rainy day when all the umbrellas were gone, one of the staff even offered me his personal umbrella. I am very choosy about where I stay and with a thousand cute hotels in Sultanahmet I usually don't like to stay at the same place twice. For an experience like this I will make an exception.
