My wife and I spent 10 days with the Sokullu Pasa Hotel. Not my first trip to Istanbul. When you come to Istanbul you want a good quiet room to come back to after long days wandering the streets and sites of this most amazing of cities. You want an excellent breakfast that has a variety of traditional offerings and plenty of them. Most of all you need a tourist friendly-professional service oriented hotel with staff that understands what service means. I don't think you can do any better than this excellent small hotel. Without doubt we will stay here again. We believe we made some friends among the staff and their help in arranging tours and transportation were invaluable.
This is an adult oriented place. Comfortable and lovely decor throughout the hotel, and unlike anywhere else.. be sure to get a room toward the street..there is no noise on this street. Clean, comfortable, friendly, service oriented, all the while putting the guest first. Breakfast is to die for, a drink in the lobby after a long day, whether apple tea or something a bit more potent, is very welcome. The desk is knowledgeable and very helpful. The quiet walk up the hill toward the Hippodrome takes about 10 minutes and takes you past a few good restaurants..you will enter the Hippodrome on the far end side from Hagia Sophia ..so every night when you return..you walk past the many fountains, the Blue Mosque, Justinian's Obleisk, the German Fountain..the walk down the hill toward the hotel was welcome every night..It's a perfect location in Sultan Ahmet. As to value for money..we definitely got what we paid for and you always know when you don't, right? No worries here..
I can't thank our manager, Feta, enough for his help and friendly conversation..although he deals with hundreds of people every year..he still reserves a smile and a wealth of information to make your trip enjoyable..I know that you will treasure this hotel..and it makes the Istanbul experience all the more enjoyable.
