I should have written this some time ago so apologies to the Sultania for not doing so. The Hotel Sultania is tucked away in a beautiful (and quiet) part of the Sultanamet close to everything you would want to visit. The service was impeccable and what impressed me most was how clean, modern and spacious the rooms were. The hotel has the 'Olive' restaurant on top (with a roof terrace bar overlooking the Agia Sophia) which provides fantastic food and amazing views. It was full of Turkish groups and couples which is always a good sign. Amazing value for money and would say it's well above its star rating in comparison to other of the so called top end hotels we've stayed at in our time.

sultania is a great hotel for a romantic weekend away. funky rooms - everything has led 'back-lighting' / mood-lighting. facilities include free wifi, as well as pool (but buy / wear a swim-hat at reception). exceptionally friendly / helpful staff. good location (nearish grand bazaar, main mosques, etc). be warned: so comfortable / luxurious you may not venture outside much! oh, but somewhat 'thin' doors / windows mean noise can cause problems.

What a fantastic hotel.... It was close to everything. Whether you are walking to all of the sites in the old city, or need to jump on a tram, it is in the ideal location. The breakfast is awesome, the staff is EXCEPTIONAL, and we will stay there again on our next trip. Now, what you may or may not like.... the matress is hard. Since there is no smoking in any restaurant, people smoke outside.... so if you open your window at night... all the smoke from outside finds its way up and in.... that is my only negative.....
You must go to one of the old Hammams. This was in the top 10 experiences of my life! If you like to shop.... you will need a day in the old bazaar. Do not buy anything your first day. I waited till my 3rd day to find the best quality and the best prices. Do not worry that it is very high pressure.... I had my husband trail along and in Turkish say " no money"....by my 3rd visit, we got fabulous things at great prices.... much less than I would have paid if it was my first day. Do not miss the Harem section of Topaki Palace. This is a must. If the market is too overwhelming, start with the Spice Bazaar. If haggling is not for you.... the prices in the stores are the same as the best prices at the market. Just you will not find the selection. Alcohol is heavily taxed! Buy at the airport... drinks are more expensive then the most expensive restaurants in NYC...

Location right in the middle of the historic part of the town (if you are looking for a proper night out and shopping it might be slightly more convenient to stay in Beyoglu or Taksim, although I think the 5 EUR taxi ride over to the Sultania are worth it), very friendly staff offering great service (early check in at 7:00am for free, coffee voucher, free DVDs, fixed a loose TV cable within 5 min), nice Spa with a little pool and gym, roof top restaurant with an awesome view, amazing breakfast and the rooms are new, very stylish, clean and offer all amenities you need (flat screen tv with sourrond sound, free tea/coffee, safe, Ipod docking station, pillow menu, minibar and so on).

Before I decide to make my booking via the hotel website I have seen too many reviews here saying that this hotel is really over rated , sometimes when you see something which seem to be TOO MUCH , you have some concerns , when I went there , I just discovered that all the positive reviews I have read were true and this hotel deserves to be over rated as in simple phrase ( Everything there is just perfect ) !.
