Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We absolutely loved this place. Everything was spot on. There is a character that is easy to indulge in! Breakfast was rich. Hospitality of the management team was of high standard. Hotel is well situated and you will not be far from main attractions in the city. Well done!

We stayed three nights at the Sultan Tughra hotel and had a wonderful welcome from Mert, who was always ready to help. He has an excellent sense of humour.
The hotel is small with commensurately small bedrooms but with everything we needed and a comfortable bed. The hotel is ideally placed for all the main istanbul attractions - 10 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque. The decor is remarkable - very ornate. Breakfast was very good, the Turkish coffee which Mert produced with no encouragement was delicious and there was a constant supply of Turkish Delight.
An ideal place to stay while visiting the sights of Istanbul.

My friend and I just came home from an exciting trip to Istanbul. We stayed three nights at Sultan Tughra. The staff was helpful and very patient with our ongoing questions about sights and how to get to... they were so sweet to us and we felt welcomed.
The rooms are clean, not that big but spacious enough for a pleasant stay. Besides that the decor underlines the story of the Ottoman Empire. Red carpets, glitter and gold.
The hotel is perfectly located in the charming and quiet area of Sultanahmet. Close to the grand sights such as The Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar etc.

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor. The basement rooms are bigger but have smaller windows.

I recently stayed at this hotel and from beginning to end I had a great experience. The staff including Mr, Mert was excellent. He made sure that every guest was taken care, whether it was booking a tour or arranging for a car to take you to the airport customer service is their number one priority. This hotel reminds me of the bed & breakfast hotels we have here in California. The decor and cleanliness of the overall hotel was perfect. My room was downstairs from the main floor. In spite of being close to the stairs it was almost always quiet. My room was small as most rooms in Istanbul are but it was just me so I didn't mind. Every morning I was greeted by Mr. Mert who remembered by name and knew exactly what I wanted to eat including the very delicious Turkish coffee. Since the hotel is off the main tourist street you don't have to listen to the street vendors or drunken tourist shouting in the middle of the night. All in all I enjoyed my trip to Istanbul as well as my stay at the Sultan Tughra.

Quaint hotel with interior decor in traditional Turkish style. Our room on the 1st floor was't the most spacious , but it was always well cleaned and bed comfortable with lavish furnishings. Staff warm and friendly and in particular Mert or Matt who is always helpful. Hotel located within walking distance of all major attractions in the Sultanamet area.

Upon arrival, we were welcomed by Mert who was all smiles and extremely helpful. He offered us turkish coffee and turkish delight and even asked if we would like some breakfast. We were upgraded to the king suite, which was a pleasant surprise too! The room was extremely clean and extravagant. The bathroom was very large and the bedroom was a good size too. We were very comfortable and slept very well. Breakfast was very good and they make delicious eggs upon request at no extra cost. Mert and Mehmet went out of their way to make us comfortable throughout our stay. The location is very good, just a short walk from the main sites.
