Exceptional 9,6 From 93 reviews

Good 6,0
Elegant but overly simplistic
One should be aware that he/she should not expect all levels of confort by chosing this atypical hotel: no elevator, no tea/coffee machine in the rooms, rather simple.breakfast. However it does allow to plunge into another era especially through the beautiful antique furniture and the decoration making the accomodation itself to be part of the touristic journey. Everything is clean. The personnel is helpful yet far from overly cheerful.

Great service and location in a tight space
Great service and nice hosts. Very clean and well maintained. Close to the major sites: Top Kapi, Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmet etc. Very small standard room; narrow vertical spiral staircase leading from the front desk / entrance to the rooms. Beautiful garden on the dining room level, but of little benefit in the winter time. No TV nor radio in the room, but excellent WiFi

Brilliant hotel - highly recommended! Will be back
Great location for walking round the historic cultural centre of Istanbul, across to Galata and transport options beyond. Absolutely amazing boutique hotel with a unique shady, private garden for evenings over a g+t and breakfasts too. Buffet breakfast delicious, with freshly baked pastries, wide range of cheeses, fruit and some cooked dishes too. Staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, giving recommendations for eating out locally and in Galata beyond the tourist trail. The hotel arranged a private taxi from the airport and back too. Couldn't give a higher recommendation!

Spectacular stay
The Sultanhamet location was in the heart of the city’s history, it was an immediate immersion in the story of Istanbul. The walled garden where we had breakfast and drinks was a delight. The staff were both attentive and discreet. Altogether the hotel was much more than a base for the Istanbul experience, it was an important part of the experience itself.
