It was wonderful to feel welcomed by the Sultania hotel’s staff. A special gratitude to Mr. Süleyman who welcomed us and was always very gentle providing great tips to know the best places in Istanbul as well as for the remaining staff who made us feel so welcomed! A special care in every detail, from the lovely aromas across all areas of the hotel, the cleanliness of the rooms and delicious breakfast, we loved all. The location is suburb; it is on a walking distance to the main Historical Center and served by the metro line which takes us to the remaining attractions in Istanbul, but benefits from being in a pedestrian street which is very nice, especially if you want to start the day having your breakfast in a fresh ambiance.
It definitively made the difference staying at the Sultania hotel as part of our wonderful experience in Istanbul, a special thanks to all the staff!

This was my second visit to Sultania, the first one being on juanuary, and all i have to say is that the hotel is excellent. Location is perfect, dozens of restaurants are nearby and it’s close to the main attractions (10 min walking to Topkapi palace and Aya Sophia) and 5 min away from the tram station. Although it is in an animated street, it’s a quite place & what’s most important is that it’s 100% safe.
The rooms are of standard size and are just beatifully decorated. I loved the sultans theme. The mini bar is reasonably priced and the breakfast is wonderful with a good selection of cheese, fresh fruits, jams, pankackaes and waffles, fresh made pastry, cereals, fresh yogurt, all kinds of hot drinks are available upon request…..and the list goes on. Besides, they had tea time, kind of complementary breakfast everyday.
The staff is very courteous and helpful. I think i found my perfect spot in Istanbul, so without any doubt I’d definitely go back there.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner rooms in the 3rd floor, they're bigger.

We had booked to go to Istanbul for our 25th wedding anniversary and it really was an experience to remember. The reception we got on arrival was 5 star and we were made to feel special the whole time we were there. Helimi spent the best part of an hour talking us throuhg our stay in istanbul and making personal recommendations and giving us invaluable advice. The room and the facilities lived up to the hotel's reputation. Serap, Guest relations officer, was brilliant at foreseeing our needs and making bookings at restaurants and excursions. Sehmi smiled all the way through our holiday. Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful. They couldnt do enough for us. The Olive restautant offered us beautiful views and and equally beautiful food coupled with brilliant service and the breakfast in the hotels restaurant in the mornings was enough to feed a small army with a wonderful choice of iems. The omelette chef offered tailor made o melettes delivered to your table. A definate for anyone travelling to Istanbul. I will most certainly be going back nex year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely. If you can, try to upgrade to the Sultan Deluxe room for somethi ng really special.

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
