“Absolutely STUNNING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We are currently staying in Sura Hotel and we are loving our experience. Not only is the hotel in the perfect location but the staff are absolutely wonderful! We have traveled to many different countries and stayed in many hotels and Sura Hotel is definitely one that we will come back to! It is purely mesmerising being in Sultan Ahmet and after a long day out sight seeing, it is great to return to friendly and very helpful staff members!
Their open buffet breakfast is lovely with a very good variety. We also enjoyed dinner at the hotel's restaurant as they make good quality clean food!

I will definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and family members back in Oz and we will be back!

I just got back from an exotic trip to Instabul. I was impressed by the old city of Sultanahmed. With regard to the Sura Design Hotel, although I did not stay there, I would definately go back just to stay in one of its rooms. I visited the hotel in seek of a reliable place to eat turkish dishes with a touch of european mentality and I was impressed by the location, the design of the reception room, the professionalism of the personell and the well cooked dinner I was served. It seemed to me that this hotel offers the full package for its guests at reasonable prices and is a place worthvisiting for a splendid dinner or even better for a full stay. Congrats for your professionalism.

The hotel and staff were incredible. The staff was so attentive and professional. The property itself is very cool. They rooms have some very nice features. I especially liked the "pillow menu" which was complimentary. We also enjoyed the sound system in the room. The tv speakers are located in the light fixture.
You could not ask for a better location. If you exit the hotel and turn right the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia are just a brief walk. There are tons of restaurants and cafes in the area too. The only down side are the restaurant employees trying to get customers. You cannot walk 10 feet without numerous people bothering you. This is obviously not the hotels fault, but worth noting.

Room Tip: The call to prayer each morning might wake you up.

From the moment we walked into reception, we knew we'd booked the right hotel. The greeting from reception was a very friendly one and this continued throughout the weekend. We felt we could always ask reception any question, whether about the hotel, the location, excursions or where to eat!

The location was amazing! We couldn't have wanted for better. It is on a nice little cobbled street with a few restaurants along the way, and only a short walk from all the main attractions.

The room was excellent! Suitable for any Diva! We loved the décor and the lovely shower.

Sometimes it not about whether there is a problem or not but how the problem is dealt with. Some times faults happen. We had a problem with our door not shutting properly. We phoned reception and they sent a maintenance man up to the room straight away. When it looked like it couldn't be fixed easily we were moved to the room next door, they even helped us move our already unpacked things! In some hotels this would have caused a big problem, not here, it was dealt with professionally and quickly.

Paraphrasing ChicagoJanice, Sura is an oasis in Sultanahmet district. I cannot say enough about this delightful hotel and the wonderful staff. The location is phenomenal. The room was interesting, in a good way. The staff consistently went above and beyond to meet our every need and want: A very special thank you to Turan, whom we could never thank enough. Ask for a room on the garden side, you will be shocked to find this tranquil space off this busy street. Hospitable, clean, well priced, desirable location: What are you waiting for? Sura is a MUST hotel in Istanbul. I know I will be back.

Spent a couple of days in the sura hotel which was recommended by a friend of mine.
Comfortable rooms very modern style and a nice cossy restaurant with great deco.
Friendly service from the reception desk to the housekeepers and the waiters.
My compliments to Kostas for his excellent services always smilling making our stay unforgetable.We will definately return to Instambul at the sura hotel.

Room Tip: For a good room make sure you talk to the reservation manager. She is very efficient at all times a...

Wow, what an amazing hotel, not only for location but also design. We stayed on the lapis floor in the garden deluxe room which was fantastic. Our room have a wonderful view of the mosques and garden. Although in saying this the street view rooms would have also been great as the street would only ever see about 3 cars a day.
The hotel has a fantastic bar/drawing room to sit and relax in. Wonderfully designed and decorated. A must thing to do after a long day walking around the markets.
Breakfast was wonderful. Loads of choice and even the taste of Istanbul can be had.
