Friendly staff, especially Ms Serap at guest relation. She is good. Cosy room, comfortable bed, reasonable location. Room is small with damp odor for > USD 350 per nite. This is my first stay for three nights in Istanbul and would try other hotel as there are many good recommendation at Tripadvisor.

Sultania is most likely the best hotel you'll find in Sultanahmet, the number of positive reviews have a reason.
The location is ideal, a minute walk to Gulhane tram stop and a few to the major attractions of the old city Agia Sofia, Top Kapi etc.
Rooms are spotlessly clean and so is the whole hotel, breakfast is superb and waiting stuff were efficient.
The decoration of the room was simply GREAT and since it´s always a main reason to choose accommodation we were easily impressed once we got in. There is an ottoman touch everywhere from the sofa to the sink, five star amenities and the room we stayed at 1306 was very very spacious (bathroom was small but that´s ok) with even speakers above our bed. Honestly one of the most well decorated rooms I have ever seen. Tv is a bit small though and the dvd player provided looks outdated.
What needs to be fixed is their elevator which is tiny and we had to walk down the stairs most of the time, but they are working on it I guess.They also charge you for the Hammam and Sauna and that´s due to the number of hotels using the common facilities there.

Last but not least is our impression for the rest of the stuff.
They totally met all our requests and the main guy at the front desk cleared up a misunderstanding regarding our accommodation´s extension within a few minutes.
HOWEVER boutique hotels are not Hiltons or any other 300+ room hotels so maybe they should be more focused to every individual guest and that's something we didn't quite feel.
Our unique Guest Relation, Concierge and Hospitality person there was Semih who communicated welcome with a smile and made us feel like home.They also offered gifts at the time of departure which was a nice gesture.

Overall a unique and unforgetable experience in the city of the cities

I've just returned from a weekend in Istanbul staying at the Hotel Sultania.

The hotel & room were lovely, with nice touches such as complimentary drinks, pastries & Turkish delight on arrival.

All of the staff were lovely and extremely helpful. Helping with directions, tips on how to get around the city and arranging cabs.

On arriving back at the hotel late one night, when the staff realised I was celebrating my birthday, they brought out into the reception area the most delicious birthday cake with candle and sang happy birthday!

We had drinks in the roof top restaurant at the hotel next door (great views but slow service).

Room had a interesting bathroom arrangement with the door to the en suite doubling as the shower door, which took a few moments to work out.

Great central location - walking distance to the Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, cisterns and grand bazaar.

Would go back to Istanbul and stay in this hotel again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

We have just returned from a four night stay at this hotel.We were given an excellent welcome with a complementary drink on our arrival. All the staff were most helpful,the rooms are quite unlike the usual you get in most hotel chains, each having some unique features. An Iron and ironing board in the wardrobe was a useful feature.The breakfasts offered great variety and the service was generally excellent. The location is excellent with most of the cities historic sites within walking distance.

At arrival we were surprised with coffee or thea and cake, during the time we were registered as a guest.
We had a room for three persons next to the elevator, so we thought this would give a lot of noise, but we didn't here it once. In the room there where a double and a single bed (real bed) with indirect lighting beneath.
The room was spacious and very clean.
This hotel has also a very good restaurant (olive), which has a normal european price but now with great food.
Other restaurants are also good, and somewhat less expensive, but the quality of the Olive restaurant is very good and it has a very nice view of topkapi and Aya Sofia.

The breakfast in the morning is incredible! I would like to point out that they have honey directly from the honeycomb (very special and delicious).

The only small negative point was the quality of the sound from the seperate speakers (above the main bed).

When we went home we got a nice present and when they said goodbye it felt like leaving friends.
