“Great hotel and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Hotel is ideally situated, in a quiet part of the old town, with the major sights 10-15 minutes walk away. There are plenty of restaurants in the immediate vicinity too. The rooms have everything needed, with efficient aircon, comfortable beds, great breakfasts, and wonderful service generally. They arranged our transfers ( from the airport, and to the cruise terminal ) and all went without a hitch. I'd definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again without any hesitation.

We were collected in the complimentary pick up from the airport punctually and our first view of the quiet cobbled street and leafy vines, with the bright modern lobby shining in the twilight was a relief after the hustle of Istanbul. The hotel is conveniently situated round the corner from the tram stop and cashpoints and a 10 minute walk to bazaar and mosques. The Room was lovely, even better than it seemed in the photos, and quiet despite overlooking the street. The air conditioning was so efficient despite it being the middle of summer that we even turned it off at night to sleep in the already cooled room. We enjoyed the complimentary cups of water placed daily in the rooms, and the afternoon tea waiting in the lobby after a busy day sightseeing. We tried and liked the bijou Turkish bath in the basement, and the herbal tea and fresh fruit after the massage. The breakfasts had more food that we could think of and the staff were tolerant when we fed their fine buffet to the restaurant cats outside. The lift was adequate for us and our four suitcases. Our only regrets were minor, we felt the quality of the rooftop restaurant did not match the price (but it was Ramadan) and in both restaurants we had a couple of linguistic misunderstandings, and the constant change between Euro and Turkish Lira was confusing. We were presented with charming exit presents and the hotel overall was amazing.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor at the front near the lift and loved it

from the moment we walked into the lobby to the time we departed we could not fault sultania.The young staff were so welcoming,after a week we felt we were leaving people who really cared.We were part of a group of 8,4 of whom stayed elsewhere.They were made welcome when we met up each day to plan our activities.We did not use the spa facilities,too busy but they looked wonderful.Breakfast was a feast as was dinner.Our every whim catered for with immediacy and care.The hotel may rate 5 stars but the staff were a 10.We agree restaurant opposite was good and great fun.Highly recommended in all areas.

More than helpful staff at any moment make you feel welcome
Hotel is located close to tram line and within 5 minute walk to Topkapi Palace but thanks to the location in a traffic free street it is very quiet!
We booked Sulatnia room and it was just as it was presented on the website including the very special lightning.
We booked a scrub and massage at the hotel spa and I can recommend it, the staff there were also very professional and helpfull
Excellend breakfast buffet served with the smile and with attention to detail

Best room , best staff, best location !!! We were so thrilled with our stay . Everything about this hotel caters to the Istanbul explorer . We would come back after 7 hours pounding the pavements and be greeted by the staff at the outdoor tables with water wine and delight that we had enjoyed their city so much . I cannot wait to get back to Sultania on my next Turkish adventure

I've been visiting this hotel for the last five years. It is my best hotel ever in Istanbul. It is located just next to the Gulhane metro station and walking distance from most POIs in the area. Staff are so welcoming and helpfull. Rooms are very clean and thier designs are fabulas.

We loved staying at the Sultania! Perfect location: close to all attractions, restaurants, and the light rail line. Welcoming and wonderful staff. Fun room. No traffic in front makes for a quiet stay. But, a bit difficult to find at first.
