“Location, Comfort, and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed at the Muyan Suites for 4 nights in July 2013, and it was an excellent choice for us. Here is why:

Location: Besides the close proximity to the best historic sites (short walking distance), the hotel is on a very quiet side street, hardly any cars pass on it, so it's great for getting a good night of sleep. Some reviewers didn't like the street because it isn't "pretty", but it is authentic, not dressed up for tourists, which we liked. On the street right behind the hotel is a good little super market; great for buying some non-touristy food souvenirs (bring your translation book). Walking distance to some good restaurants (see my other reviews), the tram, etc. Note: the little side streets are cobble stone, sometimes steep, and not good if you aren't in good shape. Fortunately this wasn't any problem for us.

Comfort: We're a family of 4 people, and they accommodated us well with a large suite. The bedroom had a large bed for the parents, and the living room (separated by a door) had a large sofa bed, more than adequate for two older kids to share. Each room had its' own a/c which worked great. The bathroom shower had great water pressure. There were a couple of broken things when we arrived- the toilet paper holder, and one of the bedside reading lamps. They did not fix the reading lamp (a minor annoyance), but otherwise the room was in excellent condition, clean and comfortable, with a refrigerator and (free) bottled water. The bed was firm (standard in Turkey) which we were quite happy with.The breakfast was outstanding- a large selection included eggs, meats, yogurt, roasted vegetables, olives, cheese, many fruits (including cherries, peaches, plums, etc.), various breads, jams, honey, and even homemade cake. The part I liked most was that at breakfast, they offered to make me the coffee drink of my choice (cappuccino, espresso, Turkish, etc.) and it was divine.

Service: The care and helpfulness of the staff is excellent. They provided us everything we needed in terms of directions, a map, advice about where to go for dinner, and help with transportation (to/from the airport), calling taxi service and advice about taxi's, etc. In addition, they helped us with some special requests...thank you Aslan!

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Very good location - walking distance from all the points of interests. The manager (Aslan) and the rest of the crew are superb as well. The rooms are big / spacious, especially considering the location. The breakfast in the AM in included and is a big buck-saver. There are umpteen restaurants in the vicinity and lot of public transport pickup point at a walking distance.

Parking space is a challenge, so dont go with a rental car.

Loved the stay, safe and happy.

The Muyan Suites hotel is wonderfully located in Sultanahmet, Istanbul, a very historic part of the city. It is close to the Grand Bazaar, the Spice Market, the Four Seasons Hotel (formerly a Turkish prison), the Blue Mosque, with plenty of wonderful shops close by. A great place to walk and discover this part of the city. Right next door is a wholesale shop for Turkish lamps which will be packed and delivered to your room. Located on a sloping hill, you also get good exercise. Rooms are well kept with good amenities. Staff is very helpful and courteous.

Room Tip: Suites are very spacious, choose a view of the street.

Great location close to the major sights. Good resuarants within walking distance. Bathroom could do with an update. Hotel staff were excellent and helpful. Breakfast could have had more pastry variety. Overall a very good place to stay.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. It was close to the major attractions of the city. Aside from having all the great amenities that you get from top notch hotels, this place gives you a personal at home feel. One in itself is a good enough reason for my family and friends to stay here again but combine all is a major plus. The other edge that they have is their staff, they made sure all your needs are met and more. Asian the manager met us very warmly, he gave a great synopsis, entertained our questions and provided suggestions and solutions. Ms. Tugba who took care of us in the morning made sure all of us were well fed (my family being 10 members). It is the staff who gives the Turkish people a wonderful impression. I could go on and on with our wonderful experience with this hotel. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to other people and given the chance again when I go to Turkey, I will stay with them again!

My wife and I spent 3 nights in Istanbul with being our first visit to Turkey. After a number of days in rather small and cramped hotel rooms in Western Europe we arrived in Sultanahmet to experience the absolutely delightful Muyan Suites. Aside from a wonderful location close to the major attractions around the Blue Mosque, and our fantastically sized room, we were simply overwhelmed with the best customer service we have experienced in many years. And I travel a great deal. The hospitality was outstanding from welcome to goodbyes - what an example for others to follow. Superb Muyan Suites. Bravo. Mike & Toni from New Zealand

Room Tip: Our first floor room was wonderfully quiet.
