An excellent boutique hotel, handy to attractions and restaurants. Very comfortable rooms. The staff were terrific. They were all very friendly, and had that great turkish sense of humour. They also introduced us to our wonderful guide, Fatih Cekin. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Hotel Sultania to celebrate a 60th birthday. It offered everything other reviews had claimed: a warm welcome; a beautifully clean, attractively decorated and stylishly furnished room with every facility one would expect including tea and coffee making equipment and a very comfortable bed; helpful advice on where to go and how to get there, as well as help with bookings; and a complementary birthday cake complete with candle, on the appropriate morning.

Hotel Sultania is perfectly situated for visiting many of the best known attractions in the city, only an easy walk away (even for OAPs!).

This is not a cheap hotel but we felt it gave good value for money and have no hesitation in recommending it to other people.

Sultania is superb! The staff is very friendly, helpful and give a good service! The receptionist and concierge were very helpful and polite , they offered us a welcome drink and showed us the most important attractions on a map.

The room was very clean , spacious and well decorated! warm feeling. the bed is very comfy. bathroom is small, but very clean.
tip : i was there with a friend , in most rooms the sink is in the bedroom, out of the bathroom, but if you send a mail , they offer you a room with sink in the bathroom!! we stayed in room 1201.

breakfast : very good, all sorts of bread, cereals, jam, nutella choco, fresh fruit, fresh orangejuice, meat, fish(even smoked salmon) , cheese, eggs and the chef makes every morning fresh baked waffles! very good!

the location is great! could not have been better, only 5 min.walk to all important sights and nearby trams. close to many restaurants .

in the afternoon : in the lobby , there is a little buffet with tea, coffee, cake , cookies... (all included!)

We had a great time and we would definitely stay here again!!

My partner and I stayed at the Sultania for a recent long weekend break.

It is a very impressive hotel inside and out. Our first impressions as we walked down the narrow little streets in Sultanahmet towards the hotel was "wow that's a nice looking hotel". The inside is even more impressive.

The staff are really attentive and friendly and want to help.

The rooms are clean and modern but with a wonderful Turkish look and feel.

The breakfast is incredible. Lots of food to choose from but I especially liked the frame of fresh honey lifted straight out of the hive earlier that day.

The hotel has its own hamam, spa, gym and swimming pool so there is no shortage of activities to de-stress and relax after a hard day's touring the city.

Stay here. You won't regret it.

My husband and I had a great stay at the Hotel Sultania. From the staff at the front desk, to the concierge, to the restaurants - it was all terrific!! You really felt like family, and they would always greet us by name when we returned from our days of sight seeing. You couldn't ask for a better location, walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Spice Bazaar and Grand Bazaar. We took a cooking class at their rooftop restaurant Olives which was one of the highlights of our stay. It was fun, informative and best of all, we got to eat our amazing creations after the class. We also stayed at the Four Seasons Bosphorous and while it is a beautiful hotel, we enjoyed the Sultania more and wished we had booked the Sultania for the whole trip.

The Sultania lived up to its reputation: clean, comfortable rooms in a great location that allows you to walk to all the major sites. It's just fabulous, particularly if you are a first time visitor to Istanbul. More impressive however are the staff - what a great bunch of people! Professional service staff in very way but so incredibly happy and friendly. Nothing is ever too much trouble - they are five star in every way (particularly the wonderful Goysan [hope I spelt that right] who personally walked us to get a doner kebab at 11pm one night to ensure we picked the 'best' shop after a very long day tour to Gallipoli. And the lovely Sara who dealt with the Turkish bank after the ATM failed to give us any money...and the terrific breakfast staff who always remembered how we took our coffee.....and the list goes on). We loved Istanbul but we loved it more because of the Sultania.

Room Tip: The deluxe double room with terrace gives you just that little bit more space - both inside and out...
