We stayed here by mistake. We had originally booked another hostel (Minel) that was closed down at the time of our visit and transferred us to this one. Despite not knowing what to expect, the hostel is a calm and comfortable place to stay. Very clean, nicely decorated, enough space in the room and even soap/shampoo was provided. The house is an old ottoman building just two steps from main touristic attractions but in a very quite alley. The breakfast is more than enough with cereals, toasts, selection of cheese, fruit, cake, coffee, milk and tea. Overall, an excellent location, clean and quiet at affordable prices, so a perfect hostel to stay in Istanbul.

Great location being a very short uphill walk from the Gulhane tram stop. The airport is about an hour away by tram with metro transfer. The basement room was cozy, but the shower was not cordoned off from the rest of the bathroom, so water would easily escape and flood the toilet area, rendering the floor mat useless. The high humidity and lack of windows has created some mould stains, and I caught a few ants trying to feast on the water. Wifi was also very weak downstairs, something reception acknowledged they knew beforehand. There are no elevators, but reception was more than happy to help move the luggage along the stairs.

Wonderful stay at Anatolia Suites St Sophia. Sevim could not have been more helpful in every way - walked us to a nearby restaurant (Ziya) which was excellent, waited with us for taxis and even let us store luggage with them while we travelled around Turkey. Nothing too much trouble and genuine, friendly service above the norm. The room was small, but spotless with a recently renovated bathroom. Typical Turkish breakfast was great in the cafe next door and a laundry service about 50 m down the road. To top it off, a fantastic location - easy walking distance to all the attractions in Sultanahmet and close to a tram line for any that are not. There was even a pub (the North Shield) about 200m away that was showing the AFL finals, but also shows basically any top sporting event. Highly recommended.

Even before we arrived we had several emails from Sevim helping us. Once we got there we were very impressed and pleased. The rooms were spotless, the breakfast fine, the staff goes out of their way to help with recommendations, reservations, they mailed our postcards and kept our luggage for a week while we went to Cappadocia. It's 5 minutes from everything you want to see plus excellent restaurants. Definitely recommend!
