“Happy Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed at this little family hotel in early May 2014 for 4 nights. It was clean, quiet, friendly and homely. Wonderful breakfasts. Pity about the weather but there wasn't much they could do about that!

I booked this based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel is in a perfect location, just five mins walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern, etc. Our room was on the first floor at the back and was extremely clean, spacious and quiet. Air conditioning, new furniture, nice tv, shower but no bath. The staff were extremely friendly, particularly at the restaurant, and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were lucky enough to be staying when the restaurant was hosting a party with a belly dancer and other entertainment; it provided a great atmosphere with everyone getting involved in the party. We ended up eating at the restaurant three times within the week, something we'd never normally do but we always felt like we having the best time at the liveliest place on the street. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Istanbul for cleanliness, price and location.

Room Tip: Upgraded to standard room from economy for a little extra. The room was a good space with a sofa/ben...

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was our third visit to Istanbul. The hotel is in a great location and the staff are very welcoming. This hotel was by far the best we have stayed at in Istanbul.
The rooms are comfortable and well designed (the shower was especially lovely!)
The television also had a very good range of channels. The staff were always quick to help with any enquiries and give advice with regards to your stay in Istanbul.

We were not that impressed with the breakfast but that is down to personal taste, and there are many places in the area to eat (which are also affordable).
Overall, it was excellent value and we would happily stay at Senatus again.

Hotel is in a good location close to the Blue mosque and tram stop.
Rooms were very clean and modern with nice shower facilities.
Reception had English speaking friendly staff.
We choose bed and breakfast but the breakfast buffet had little choice, a few fruits, cheese bread and egg.
Not sure how the cleaners used to clean, we had a mark on our duvet and the cleaners just turned it over.
Overall a great hotel would stay again if cheaper.

Room Tip: Rooms on level 1 are pretty quiet to outside noise.

I have to say that me and my family had a great time at this hotel. The staff especially Canberk was of tremendous assistance. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a stay. That was the greatest Istanbul trip for me and my family.

We stayed 4 nights in Senatus hotel last week. The staff helped us with the map, which boat to take, etcetera. Very friendly! For the first night we had dinner in het hotel, which was very good (also because you get a drink for free ;) ). The room was very clean, and perfect. No balcony though but thats ok. The best thing I liked was walking to the hotel, passing by the Blue Mosque every night and relax every morning outside in the restaurant with a nice breakfast planning the day ahead.
Have a great trip! Berber

Room Tip: Senator room is perfect, in the back no nice view though.
