“The heart of Sultanahmet”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is hands down one of the most recommend hotels in Sultanahmet, Istanbul. I (me and my family) stayed there for 2 weeks. The staff were exceptionally helpful and very friendly. The service simply couldn't be better. Once we arrived there we felt like we were at home. The comfort was totally present and even touched the roof: the rooms were magnificent, equipped with whatever you would need in a hotel without any deficiency. In the rooms, there was no noise from the outside nor from the air-conditioning inside, which made night-time very restful. The hotel also offers you an open buffet in the morning with plenty of very delicious food. Without further do, the title of my article exactly describes the hotel: it's in the middle of Sultanahment, which makes it a lot easier to get to the sights. Also, if you would like to go to further places, there's a metro not further than 10 minutes walking by foot. Again, a big thanks to the staff including Ersin çiçek, Erdal Bakar and of course all of the rest. If you want to have a great time in Istanbul, then I highly recommend this hotel without any doubts!

We stayed here for 4 nights. The following is our review:

Pros:
1. Location is central to all of the top attractions at Sultanahmet area.
2. Bedroom is very good, with quiet air-conditioning unit and quaint decor
3. Comfortable bed.
4. Clean.
5. Excellent customer service, very polite reception, breakfast staff and manager.
6. Free wifi is reliable and fast.

Cons:
1. Shower is a little small.
2. Breakfast (included in room rate) is average but for the price you pay is acceptable.

Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel for couples or families.

Stayed in the sea view terrace room for 4 nights. There are many similar hotels to choose from in this area, but frankly if I return I would stay here again.

Easy 5 min walk to the restaurant and bar strip, Sofia Hagia etc. in the old part of Istanbul, several quiet fish restaurants within metres.

Service was extremely helpful and breakfast a nice, varied, continental treat.

Not sure how much fun any of the other rooms would have been on warm nights while we were swinging in the love seat and watching the ocean - the balcony was a winner.

Recommended nonetheless.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the sea view terrace

We stayed there (girlfriend and I) for a week in July. The staff were exceptionally helpful and very friendly. The hotel was clean and well-organised and our room was regularly cleaned to a high standard. The road and area near the hotel are quieter than the obvious tourist traps elsewhere in the vicinity, and offer some nice places to eat and drink.

The bedroom was a decent size and included air-con, which was a relief given the temperatures outside in the street! The bathroom was lovely and big. The breakfast was excellent, with lots of choice. Also free WiFi with good strength signal in our room.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of all the main attractions in the Old District and it is also really close to the T1 tram line (5 minutes walk to Sultanahmet stop), so it's easy to get around to other parts of the city and Ataturk Airport.

The staff even surprised my girlfriend with a birthday cake one evening (without request or prompt!) as it was her birthday while we were in Istanbul.

I'd highly recommend staying here!

Two friends and I stayed here for a couple of nights prior to joining an organized tour. While the hotel is located right in the heart of Sultanahmet, in fact a five-minute walk from the Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque and from the Arasta Bazaar, it was on a very quiet street. In fact, my room was on the first floor and faced the street, yet I heard little noise or traffic. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the rooms were modern and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and substantial, and kept us going well into the afternoon. The WIFI was free and had a strong signal. On the day we were to move to our hotel for the tour they kindly let us keep all of our bags at the Sultan's Royal, then called us a taxi when we came back to them up. I would definitely stay there again upon a return trip to Istanbul, and would have no problem recommending the hotel to friends or family.

Room Tip: While my room was nice, if you want a room with a view you have to book one of the deluxe rooms on a...

If you are looking for a place to stay in Istanbul that is affordable and right in the middle of everything, this is it. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and gave us some fantastic restaurant choices. They arranged a private guide service for us, which saved us both time and money. The rooms were small, but very clean and modern. We will definitely return to this hotel when we come back to Istanbul.
