Sultans Royal Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stayed at the Sultans Royal over Easter Weekend. The hotel and rooms are in very good condition and well maintained. The staff is very friendly, always had a smile for every guest, and was very willing to help with recommendations and information about the city. The buffet breakfast has a lot of variety and many Turkish dishes that we enjoyed. There are a couple of nice restaurants close by and it is only a short walk to street of very nice restaurants. It is very well located close to attractions and we were able to walk everywhere.

There are only two points to be aware of for other travelers. Noise travels easily through the walls and we found that some early rising guests tended to wake us up. Yet I believe this is likely to be the case at all boutique hotels in the area that have been converted from existing buildings. If this will bother you, then consider seeking a more commercial hotel. Plus we found the beds very firm and we had a difficult time sleeping as our personal preference is for a softer mattress. If you enjoy a firm mattress then this is unlikely to be an issue for you. It is likely that the noise affected us more because we struggled with the mattress.

Overall, we had a positive experience at this boutique hotel and would recommend it to other travelers.

My family and I actually booked with this hotel because of the recommendations on TripAdvisor. I am happy to say that TripAdvisor did not steer us wrong! This hotel was absolutely great! It is perfectly located within walking distance of all the major attractions in the Old City (including the Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia), lots of restaurants, and a nice little convenience store. The rooms are large and very comfortable. They also feature painted ceilings (which I really liked). I think the best part of this hotel, though, was the friendly and super helpful staff (especially Ersin and Ismael)! They were all incredibly nice people and made us feel right at home.

This is nice three star hotel with 16 rooms in the sultanhamet district. Tons of boutique type hotels all over so there are a lot of choices. Love the cobblestoned streets... Our room ( was on the side away from the street-so our view was that of the rear of buildings and alleys) was spacious with good bathroom, shower and tub but average amenities....Housekeeping did a fine job - room was always clean.
TV is small and hardly any English channels, but in Istanbul - TV is not necessary (there is always a lot to do). Breakfast was excellent - with grilled veggies, bread, dried fruit, french toast, eggs etc....and was always being replenished.
Great staff - they were always very attentive.
Great location - 5 min walk to Aya Sofya,Blue Mosque,Hippodrome and market.

Room Tip: Room 205 for a quiet sleep.

This is a very nice boutique hotel in the heart of the Istanbul area. It is conveniently located within walking distance of most of the must see sites. The hotel is close to good cafes. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed and spacious for Europe. The staff are friendly, extremely helpful and make your stay that little bit special. Would gladly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in the family suit which was 2 adjoining rooms. We enjoyed the room very much.

When we travel overseas, we never make reservations, we just wing it and go to the location we know where we want to be and then go hotel to hotel until we find just the right one for just the right price. We stayed here the week of Thanksgiving. This hotel was in a perfect location near the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Palace and Bazar. The staff were very friendly, they helped us arrange a trip to Ephesus. The breakfast every morning was fantastic. As with any hotels in Europe, the rooms are small, the beds were small. We viewed many other hotels in the area and for the price, this was by far the best!

Our family spent six nights at this hotel and we were extremely pleased by every facet of the hotel. It is very well situated - within a few blocks walk of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. It is in a very quaint area, shops and restaurants nearby, but very quiet at night. The front desk is extremely helpful - they book tours and make dinner reservations and provide advice and recommendations as to what to do and where to eat. The rooms are very nice and well decorated. The hotel itself is relatively small (16 rooms; 3 levels) and it has a very warm and friendly and charming atmosphere. Overall, our family would highly recommend this hotel. I cannot think of anything remotely negative to say about it.

We stayed at this hotel in February and were pleased with our choice of hotel . The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good hotel close to the attractions.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are very small.
