If Istanbul had a Tourism of the Year Award, it should be given to the Hotel Sultan Zeynap and to the owner Ibraham and his amazing staff. Safe, Clean, Convenient, Friendly, Quiet and Comfortable are just the beginning adjectives. Here you are not just a room number, but more of an invited guest. Not a tourist, but a traveler.
We spent four and a half glorious days discovering the city and the whole adventure was made sweeter by the time spent visiting with Ibraham and his nephew and staff. History and politics of the city, local customs, restaurants and must-do tours were all discussed at breakfast on the terrace each morning. Where to go, how to get there, "wait a second, I'll show you," "let me get you a taxi," "when you are at the Topaki Palace, have lunch in its reastaurant. It's touristy, but the view is great and you are already there."
It would be easy to continue singing the praises of this hotel, but why go on, I think you have the picture. Why would anyone want to stay anywhere else. Thanks Ibrahim. We will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The cradle of civilization...Turkey...From Hitites to Urartus, Phrygians to Lycians, from Romans to Seljuks...They all lived here. A city that gave birth to and fostered three glorious empires...The East Roman empire, the Byzantine empire and the Ottoman empire...Once the capital city of these empires, Istanbul is still alive and breathing a mystical blend of air, weary of the contemprary urbanization and cultural clashes. Zeynep Sultan Hotel is where you will blend a magical potion from a Roman hippodrome, an Egyptian obelisque, a Byzantine Church and an Ottoman Grand Bazaar. And maybe you will top it with the Blue Mosque or the Topkapi Palace... ... more less
