This hotel has an amazing location - you are within close walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Haya Sofia, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace. The staff are wonderful, very friendly. The rooms are rather small (and so it the doublebed) but this is an historical area and the hotel is set in an old house so you cannot expert huge suites.
The only downside is that if you are a light sleeper you will be woken up very early (5 am) by the very loud call to prayer from the Blue Mosque, by loudspeakers. At the same time it's great to stay so close to this historical area and it certainly adds to the atmosphere (but not to the sleepquality).

We stayed in the hotel for three nights in the very end of March.
We were surprised with how close it was to the Blue Mosque: it is literally just around the corner ans some 20 meters more.
The room was clean, authentically furnished and moderately small. Although, visiting friends who stayed in other hotels (even the 5-stars ones), I could see that the rooms do not get much bigger at all: must have to do with how packed the whole area of Sultanahmet is.
Other things worth mentioning are the terrace with an incredible view and the staff of the hotel - friendly and amazingly helpful.
Hotel Sultan Hill is a very peaceful nook, both cosy and charming.
P.S. a dog called Caramel is one of the biggest attractions of the City. She can also be found around the hotel.

We found this hotel from the Rick Steves book, which got us a 15% discount. The hotel was clean, and the location was great. The Blue Mosque was right across the street, so we heard the call to prayer early each morning (which might bother some people, but we enjoyed it). Free wifi in the room, and breakfast was included.

We'd never been to Istanbul so we lucked out by finding what turned out to be the perfect hotel! Hotel Sultan HIll is perfectly located. It sits on a quiet, picturesque street, but is just a few minutes walk to the Hippodrome, the heart of Sultanahmet. There are so many things to see right there: the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, the Underground Cistern, the archaeological museum, Topkapi, not to mention the park itself. And from there you can hop one of the ubiquitous trams that will whisk you to any other part of the city you want.

Aside from the location, the hotel itself is a jewel. Pristine clean, a fabulous breakfast in the atrium, and a rooftop terrace with a view of the Blue Mosque (especially at night) that will simply take your breath away. The proprietors are so nice and accommodating. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Istanbul!

I believe I found out about this hotel from a Rick Steves review; it did not disappoint! I was only booked for a 3 day stay at the hotel, however, due to the Icelandic volcano that shut European air traffic down, my trip was extended to approximately 2 weeks. The hotel staff was so incredibly accomodating and made room for my prolonged stay.

The location was within walking distance to all of the major sights. Breakfast was delicious, and included in the room rate (along with wireless internet included). My absolute favorite part of the hotel was the amazing views from the rooftop. It overlooked the beautiful Sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque. The scene was so beautiful, it was surreal for me.

I would definitely return!
