We hesitated to give our advice on the Sultania, for fear that too big a popularity would spoil this excellent hotel .
We had selected the Sultania after having read the very positive comments on Trip Advisor and have in no way been disapointed . This boutique hotel, ideally situated in the old town, close to the major sightseeing places, is a little gem . You statrt with a most friendly and professional welcome . The rooms, tastefully decorated in Ottoman syle are large enough, many of them with a balcony overlooking the Bosphorus . The marble tiled bathrooms are worthy of a 5 star palace .
Although there are more affordable hotels around, this one will give you excellent value for money and you will leave it with regrets, promising yourself you will come back ( Istanbul is a magic place you can visit a dozen times without getting bored ) .
The service again is simply perfect with attentions that make you feel more like a friend than a guest ( do you know many hotels who send you a mail after you left to make sure you had a safe trip ? ) - with a special mention for Ms Özlem Kaya, Guest Relation Mgr .
Any "negative" comment ? Well, the Sultania seems to become very popular for Gulf visitors and somtimes the lobby looks a little bit "veiled" - but this adds some "Topkapi's harem" touch ...
We just hope the Sultania will be as pleasant when we come back !
