I met a friend in Istanbul for a long girls weekend. We picked Sultans Royal because it had good reviews on TA and seemed to be in a safe location. We were blow away by how great our stay was. I arrived very early on Thursday morning (way before normal check in time) and they were able to check me in almost immediately and offered me breakfast while I waited (only a couple of minutes) for them to get my room ready early. That was a huge plus for me, especially after 10 hours of travel!! The breakfast buffet was wonderful with tons of different options to choose from. I would have gladly paid for this breakfast each morning but it was included in the room price! The front desk reception during the day (Ersin) was so great. He gave us detailed maps to get everywhere we wanted to go, told us how to use public transport to get places very inexpensively, knew the best times to go certain places and discouraged us from any of the tourist traps which we told him we would like to avoid. All of his suggestions were awesome and lined up perfectly with what we wanted to do on our trip. He was a huge help and allowed us to squeeze in a ton of different activities into our quick 5 day trip! I also wanted to comment on how great the location is. For 2 women traveling alone, it was very important that we be in a safe place where we are safe to walk around during the day and at night. The Sultanahment area was perfect, we always felt secure being out at night and we got back to the hotel there was always someone at the reception to open the door and greet us. It felt like they were genuinly interested in our well being and wanted to ensure we got home safely each evening. They knew our names and always asked how our day had been. So refreshing compared to some stuffy hotels where the front desk doesn't even look up when you pass by! Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is clean, quiet, beautiful furnishings, safe, amazing staff who are always there to help you and in a perfect location between the 2 biggest mosques. Thank you to all the Sultan's Royal staff and Ersin especially. I will definitely be back to Istanbul soon as it was such a wonderful experience;)
