We stayed 5 days in Sultanhamet in Istanbul. The hotel is literally a few minutes walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. All the tourist visiting places are close by. We upgraded to the sea view room which was very worth doing.
We enjoyed the breakfast buffet every morning, however, it does get boring eating the same food as the buffet choice was the same each day. The staff are very friendly, only a few speak good English though. The rooms were cleaned every day, the shower room is very clean as well. Overall it was a lovely experience and we would definitely recommend and we would stay there again.
"Convenient location near the must-see Hagia Sofia."
Good location to see the main sights in the old city. We walked easily to most places but the hotel is also good to catch the tram to reach other locations on the other side of the Bosphorous. The street parallel to the hotel's street is packed with places to eat and drink, touristy but fun. The hard-working staff in the hotel are super helpful for the first-time visitor, always friendly and patient with any questions you may have. Rooms are air-conditioned and bathrooms have good showers, but I wouldn't rate this a top 4 star. Towels had seen better days. However, we did opt for a standard room which I think was the smallest with no view at all from the windows so it was dark, and it was sometimes street noisy. I was disappointed that the roof terrace wasn't open because the views would have been good. There are many places nearby that offered terrace views where we often had a evening drink. Breakfast included was fresh and plentiful with help-yourself honey dripping from a standing honeycomb!
