“Awesome experience ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

My cousin and I (two girls) decided to do a 9 day trip oversea and to start off our trip we went to Istanbul first... So here is the review in my opinion for this hotel...
Location - great location to everything, I mean like walking distance... If I brought my running shoes I could had done a morning jog along the water with an awesome view.
Breakfast - was provided... And one morning we came back really late (early morning) and ask for breakfast earlier, they were very accommodating in doing so.
Wifi - was provided for FREE as well, but wasn't as fast as it would be in the US.
Comfort of room - we got one of the smaller room which was more than enough for my cousin and I. With awesome view from the bedroom and the bathroom especially when we were getting ready in the morning. We opened up the windows because it was a quite street with nice weather and view.
CUSTOMERS SERVICE - ** the most important aspect of my review ** now customer service is very important to me, especially in a foreign country... You wonder "can they speak English, will I be able to understand them, and etc...." Let me start off by saying this whole 9 day vacation I did with my cousin, Istanbul was the best part of it all. We got to meet such a wonderful person "Ersin" he works at the hotel, was very knowledgable and helpful throughout our trip. We was patience with what my cousin wanted and helped her out with suggestions and information on where to go and what to do.
OVERALL I WOULD DO IT AGAIN!!! we will be planning another trip for sure to Istanbul again so we can try to see and experience things we didn't get to do on our last trip...

What a great find. We wanted to stay walking distance to all the sites but not where we could hear all the noise. Sultans Royal Hotel gave us that. Clean, safe, and friendly staff, this will be our go to hotel for our future stays in Istanbul.

Stayed at Sultan's Royal on recommendation from a friend who had stayed there at Easter.Asit was my first trip to Istanbul and I was travelling alone I decided to use the hotel pick up service from the airport. I received a warm and friendly welcome at the hotel - reception is 24hrs which is nice when returning late to the hotel. Room and bathroom was spotless, bed very comfortable. The dish of Turkish delight was a treat! The late and early prayer calls did not bother me but may be an issue for some - and while I did hear travellers checking in late - I was so tired after a day of walking I fell back to sleep easily. Hotel is easy walking distance to the metro, Blue Mosque and other sights in the Sultanamet area - I even walked to Grand bazaar and onto the Spice bazaar, across the Galata bridge and back! Heaps of little cafes/restaurants around the corner . Lovely staff - will certainly stay there again.

This small hotel is a wonderful oasis from the bustle and grit of Istanbul. It is on a quiet sidestreet, much preferable to the many hotels on the surrounding busier streets in this neighborhood. Our room, although the smallest available, was plenty roomy, including a sitting area between the bed and the bathroom. The bath was lovely, and we particularly loved the built-in sitting area in the shower (very nice after a long, hot day of walking!). Everything was immaculately clean, and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, without being intrusive. The breakfast spread was generous, from fruit, vegetables, and yogurt, to eggs, bread, cheeses, and all kinds of delicious spreads. Istanbul is an intense city, and we found the Royal Sultans to be a relaxing respite after long days of absorbing everything. Both a terrific value and a delightful experience.

I booked this hotel for my Mother and Sisters who needed somewhere local and convenient to stay as it was their first time traveling to Istanbul. I spoke with a lovely gentleman names Ersin who upgraded them to a family room. The room had a balcony, free Wi-Fi and were very clean to a high standard.

The location of the hotel was excellent and well within reach of all tourist areas and shops. The breakfast was catered for all different tastes and the staff were very welcoming.


The transfers were pre-booked which I am glad we did and the service was on time and efficient.

I would truly recommend this hotel to anyone that is visiting Istanbul. You will not be disappointed. :)

Room Tip: The family room was great because it had a good view of the street with a balcony too :)
