Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

The hotel is small, clean, modern, and Very close of Saint Sophie (20 meters). It is ideal for resting after visits to near Big Bazar (10 minutes walking), The Cisterne (1 minute) ,Blue Mosque (2 minutes), or the several mágic places of the históric área where the hotel is situated.
The Turkish breakfast...nice...but I prefer the spanish ;)
At 2 minutes you can take The tram which goes to The Galata Bridge (a lot of restaurants for visitors) and Galata Tower, an old tower where you can see the infinit landscape of Istambul and Two continents!!!!
Resume: A wonderful hotel in a wonderful city with wonderful people. The best location where I have been ever.

PS: The first call to pray for muslim people is too early and too long...but is part of the sensations that Istambul is unique. Enjoy it ;)

The Boutique St Sophia Hotel is exactly as its name says, Boutique in every way. From the staff to the soap it was just fantastic. The staff were amazing, always professional and ready to assist you with a smile on their faces. The rooms were lovely with really great linen and super comfy beds that await you after a long day of haggling and sightseeing. They knew it was our anniversary and went the extra mile to make our stay special. Thank you Boutique St Sophia for making our stay so memorable!!

Room Tip: Not sure about the other rooms but our room was on the Road and it wasn't noisy at all. It is not big but it is very comfortable.

Rather than repeating all the kudos already showered on this lovely hotel, let me just point out the two most outstanding points. The location is probably the best in the Sultanemet...at the top of the town, no hills in the heat, right next door to everything.
A lot of other hotels claim to be 'steps away' or 'right beside' various sites, and look it, on a map, but are, in fact down the incline of a steep hill and require a lot of hiking. Also, the quaint little streets they are on are, indeed, full of restaurants and shops....and each one has a guy standing out front, hustling you to come in and eat or buy or just look at something, anything...so getting around is like running a gauntlet!
Not so, here. Just saying.
Location is one thing...but the service also sets this place apart. They simply cannot do enough for you, in a kind, professional way. Makes a big difference from the usual Istanbul-style you will become familiar with as you go about your explorations.

We just came back from spending 2 nights at this fab Boutique hotel. This is an exceptional hotel, in a great uniqe setting. The hotel itself is very well run, and provides fantastic hospitality full of nice touches that make you feel appreciated. The rooms whilist not huge are adequte and well designed. The location is ideal for exploring the area and the rest of Istanbul. I certaily would go back to the hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor

Individual service as it should be! Great hospitality! Usually I prefer to open new place for staying when return, but I certainly will stay again in Boutique St Sophia Hotel next time in Istanbul. Such disadvantages like water being effluent out of the shower tray to the floor are minor vs great design, excellent location, staff advertency, and a lot of small pleasant moments, you'll discover while staying here (like live harp music on breakfast, bvlgari accessories set, "birds trill" at opening of doors, DND funny switch instead of common tag etc). I had everything to feel myself as a VIP person for 3 days with "everything you want" attitude
