Excellent place to stay.
The people at Senetus are extremely helpful and really wants your stay to be comfortable. Mr. Ismail and Rajab are very good people. They upgraded my room at no extra cost, directed me where to buy and change money. The breakfast have variety. The location is central. If I visit Istanbul again, I will want to stay at Senetus.

Best Hotel in Sultanahmet
This is my second time at the hotel and it did not disappoint. The rooms are newly renovated and spotless. Location is 5 minute walk to Sultanahmet Square and hotel is surrounded by restaurants. The best one is Albura Kathisma which is attached to the hotel! Food is amazing with no hassle and service fantastic. The hotel manager Ismail is so kind and both Hasan and Mete gave smart city advise on tours and how to get around. I would not stay anywhere else.

Fair 4,0
Great hotel but very noisy at night (bars area)
Nice staff and the room was great. However the hotel is located in a bar area and there is very loud music (including loud bass) until 2 am, at least every night that we stayed there including friday, saturday, sunday and monday. We were in the highest floor of the hotel and we could still hear the music and feel the bass using earplugs...

Good location and friendly service
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel during our recent holiday in Istanbul. I booked 2 rooms. One of the room was very small and it was not too comfortable over 3 nights. Otherwise the front desk staff are very helpful and friendly. Hotel is located within walking distance to Haga Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi and even Grand Bazaar. Lots of tourist class restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Exceptional 10,0
Hands down my favorite place to stay in Istanbul. You can’t beat the location. The street it is on is loaded with very cheerful restaurants and bars and they have a restaurant they are affiliated with right below it that we love. Within walking distance of the main sites and shopping. Hotel staff is very accommodating and hospital. We’ve stayed here probably five or six times in the last few years. I noticed the room we were in last time could probably use a coat of paint around the edges but I’m sure they will refresh it at some point soon. Comfy beds and again, can’t beat the location. About a 45 minute to an hour long ride from the new airport. We usually arrange for a pickup through the hotel (60 euro) since I’ve not had the best experiences with taxis there.
