Above average hotel
- the location was fine. - the reception and staff are helpful but: - it is worth mentioning that the photos are photoshoped and not real. - the room service staff would keep on knocking the door in order to clean your room even if you asked them not to. - the toilet door has no lock! - water flows out from the toilet to the room carpet and start to give bad smell.

Turkish adventure
The hotel was fantastic! Upon checking in we got upgraded to a sea view deluxe room, During our three nights stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. On top of that the rooms had daily cleaning which was really nice. For breakfast we got a variety of local foods, everything was fresh and delicious. The only minor problem was that the bed wasn’t very comfortable because there were 2 single beds moved together in a one king size bed. We highly recommend this hotel for a nice holiday! M&M

Quality service
Initially had problems with room, but everything was eventually sorted and staff was very accommodating and even gave us discounted spa treatments. The hotel spa is also very professional and helpful and is a must visit if you are in Istanbul. Upon leaving we struggled getting a taxi and one of the hotel staff stood in the rain walking up and down trying to get us a taxi. Would definitely visit again.

5 star amenities for a 3.5 star price
Great location, beautiful furnishing, great value for a five star hotel. History lesson in every room. Good breakfast. Needs just a little bet of work on the roof top. Sevice can be a little bit more personalized ( was not treated in a special way or upgraded in spite of being a regular ). Was also charged 50 euro extra for a guest. If it was not for that it would have gotten a stellar 5

Great hotel in Galata
The hotel was perfect and the staff were amazing. They were trying to help us figure out what was vegan and what wasn't on the breakfast buffet and helped us out with anything we needed. The location is just perfect! It's a walking distance from anywhere you want to go in Istanbul and the neighborhood is both trendy and friendly.

Nice hotel and staff, some areas of improvements
We wanted to give a favorable feedback despite some shortcomings. We felt like hotel staff were very helpful and tried their best to accommodate our needs. Hopefully this feedback will help the hotel provide the 5-star service it claims. - The room and hotel are comfortable and the Sultan theme is beautiful. Breakfast is acceptable but Turkish coffee is extra. - The room will take a while to get to the appropriate temperature after the power is activated with the room access card. - We noticed that bathrobes were missing and asked for them. They were delivered immediately but they were missing the belts. - In the next morning the shower handle broke off. The hotel personnel advised that repair service was on it's way. After we came back at around 5 pm, the repair was not done yet. We were then asked to wait as the person was on it's way. The repair was done within an hour but the shower and bath floor were left dirty after the repair man left. - On the next day, I notified the hotel that the toilet seat was loose but this was not fixed. I have to mention that drawer handles are also loose. - Even though the room was non-smoking, smoking smell is noticeable and we felt like it was coming through the air vent. - On the second day, there was very little toilet paper left and room service did not replace it or leave some extra. It was however delivered right-away after we asked for it. - The TV is not facing the bed for the type of room we selected.

Excellent view. Great breakfast.
Magic view, great breakfast, the hotel needs some maintenance and updates, bad coffee bar in the room, comfortable bed, staff need some training. Overall good , but could be better

A 3 star hotel in a great location.
The hotel says it’s 5 star, I would say that it is 3 star. The decor is very dated, the staff are friendly and breakfast is good. There was confusion when we arrived as I booked a twin room which they did not have. The receptionist said that there was no note on the booking. But surely by booking a twin room is all the note we needed to do. So we had to spend the night in a double then move rooms the next day to a twin. This was a pain but the hotel did resolve the issue as soon as they could. The hot water in the shower takes a while to come through. When it does the shower is either cold or hot you can’t have it in the middle.
