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.
