Can't say enough about how fantastic it felt arriving to the cool and uniquely decorated lobby at Sultan Tughra after what may have been the most unbearable/terrifying airport shuttle in my lifetime.
Nurcan and the staff were extremely kind and willing to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Given I was 16 wks pregnant at the time, the unexpected extra care and consideration they demonstrated was really appreciated.
We stayed for 4 nights, upgraded to the King's suite for 2; both rooms were very nice despite being a little small overall. Beds are comfortable, clean and warm. Our first room in the basement was preferred only because it would be darker in the mornings, a lot faster to cool with AC, and had a great shower. But, it had zero counter space to store our toiletry items and being next to the utility room, we heard the cleaning staff quite early.
The King's suite had a great big bathtub and nicer bathroom, a little more furniture and was very quiet being on a floor all to itself.
The breakfast buffet was good. We could get a hot omelet with cheese made to order in addition to the number of cold items; fruits, salads, cereal etc. They were in the process of upgrading the facility when we left, hopefully that made the flow of coffee machines, hot water dispensers and the like a bit more organized, as it seemed a bit cramped and unorganized.
The hotel is located well, took us 5-10 minutes to walk to the main square between the Haiga Sophia and the “blue” mosque, it’s also quite close to the water in the other direction. There are plenty of standard restaurants, hooka spots, random cats, and shops along the way to make the stroll pleasant.
Istanbul is such an incredible city to visit and explore, but I loved coming in from outside to the serene peace and quiet of the hotel. Felt like coming home after a hectic day at the office. Would highly recommend!
