      Excellent location of the hotel which is very close to most of the historical places. They are of walking distance. It's located just behind the Blue Mosque and facing the Marmara see. Clean hotel with balcony to sit and enjoy the view. After going around perhaps this is the best hotel in best location for the price what you pay. My wife and I enjoyed the stay at Sultanahmet Palace Hotel

      Pole position in the old centre of Istanbul next to the most important historic buildings and the basar.phantastic view of the Marmara Sea.WiFi free of charge. Free pick-up at the airport.

      High price compared to similar hotels.No health-club, unattractive restaurant. Always troubles with taxis called by the hotel reception.

      position, friendly staff, views, convenience to sights, the way the staff did their best to do all the 'back room' stuff that makes a hotel stay good without being seen and so well, the room was always beautifully clean, everything in the right place etc. laptop internet access for those, like us, who do not travel with computers for free, dining room views of the bosphorus. our room view of the blue mosque, immediate reply to e mails before our stay, organisation of trips for us, room decor, general appearance of all public areas

      we were not there long enough

      excellent location if you want to get aquainted with historic center of the city, close to Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia, interesting design with original turkish touch

    • Older travelers

      Views from the balcony and restaurant were wonderful! The Blue Mosque one direction and the Sea of Marmara the other. There was much to walk to in 15 minutes and a tramstop for getting to other places. Hotel has a lovely garden out front which is a pieceful place to sit. THere is wifi through out the hotel and a computer/printer in the lobby for boarding passes and directions. The concierge was helpful in making reservations but also left us on our own we wanted the adventure of figuring it out ourselves (a Bosphorous cruise). The room was fresh and a good temperature when we arrived (not stuffy like it hadn't been opened in a while). Comfortable bed! Nice sitting area in our room. Shower with a view of the sea of marmara.

      Drain in the corner of the bathroom had a bit of a funky smell.Our balcony door opened to a rooftop restaurant so when our curtains would blow open our privacy faded quickly.the balconies all connect so we had to decide when we could leave the door open and when not.

      Their Deluxe room was the most enjoyable we have experienced anywhere for the money. It was roomy (400+ sq ft), well appointed, the bathroom included an new upscale glass enclosed hot tub with rain shower. For us a key feature was the spectacular panoramic view of the city and Sea of Maramar. The staff proved most accommodating and helpful when needed. Breakfast was complete with more options than found elswhere. Obviously, it is a great location for tourists.Our place to stay in Istanbul.

      Perhaps the lack of an elevator. However, the stairs were very managable.

      The location was excellent and the view from the room was great. Services and staff were good.

    • Group of friends

      Breakfasts and meals were very nice. The location was great; very close to the Blue Mosque and for vigorous walkers close enough to get to most central sites and to tram stops. Airport pickup included was appreciated.

      No complaints

      Fantastlic view of lue Mosque rilgh outside our window. Helpful staff, nice restaurant with good food and nice view of Marmara Sea. Room itself was tired and dated, TV didn't work, but overall great experience.

      Room appointments were outsdated and tired, TV didn't work.

      The location of the hotel is splendid, with views of the Blue Mosque from one side, and of the Manamara sea on the other side. The restaurant shares the latter view. It is in the heart of the old town, so that the major attractions are within walking distance. Despite being so centrally located, it is an oasis of calm. The staff are friendly, the rooms are kept spotlessly clean, the breakfast (buffet) offers a large choice. I lunched there on one day in the terrace garden, enjoying the sun, the views, and also the quite seclusion. There is even free wifi throughout the hotel, a nice extra.

      The location and view from the room

      the loud heater and the lack of information on use of safe, TV etc provided

    • Couple
      8.8

      The location is perfect- not noisy, but in the very center of the old town. The view from the balcony was amazing- Blue Mosque on the right, Bosphorus on the left. Around 300m till the Aya Sophia and Tapkapi Palace. Also there's a Bazaar just across the street. In the room we had a traditional turkish bathroom - which was increadable! It was such a pleasure to relax on the warm stone sits and to pour hot water on yourself. The stuff was very polite, helpful and perfectly spoke English. 1 time transfer from the airport is free of charge.

      Breakfasts could be more various, but basically it was enough. Fruit salads were very nice. The room was small, but if you use it only for spending the nights (because there's so much to see - you spend all day long outdoors), it's quite enough. The view and hamam campensate the size of the room anyway.
