Room (standard) was tiny and seemed quite outdated! This was surprising because the open areas were quite nice. Under the stairs so could hear all the footsteps. The hotel sits on a road just behind the Aya Sofia, so a nice quiet location. So quiet because the road is closed during the day. Hard to find a taxi to deliver me there, and the hotel reception was of no help. Staff from my other hotel walked me and my luggage to this one. Staff, except front desk, were exceptional though.
Wow. We are family with 3 teen kids. We stayed in 5* hotels in Europe, USA, Moscow & Middle East - this is our happiest hotel experience ever.
Not more glamourous than 5* - but a happier experience.
I cannot understand any negative review about this hotel (we also have very high expectations)
Staff love each other like they are from one family! They work together on issues, help each other to make the vistor happy. This changes the atmosphere from only a hotel to a beautiful experience.
They listen & were serious about anything we asked. When we were unsure of route to Grand Bazaar a young member came to walk with us to it.
Muhammet talks Arabic, Turkish & English, the most incredibly helpful & caring person I have met in any hotel – he is a true star.
Ebru the caring young lady on reception was always happy to talk & make recommendations and arrangements.
Vedat is a great manager / organiser & ensures that everything is working well & has picked a great team. The night-staff Omar is helpful throughout the night too.
Best location... 4 minute walk to Blue Mosque then Hajia Sophia & Sultan’s Palace after that. Grand Bazaar is 10 mins walk.
3 local grocery shops open until 3am next to you & cafes restaurants at the end of the road and neighbouring streets, but the road is not busy and is always calm.
Décor is new, furniture new and elegant & bathroom is new & high quality - very clean.
Breakfast is great Turkish style with very nice omelettes too.
If you are Arab
- location: 5 stars
- staff : 5 stars
- breakfast : 3 stars

- renovated old house, so some room faculties do not function properly
- new different experience for me and my wife, living in an old renovated house, but it was a good one
Ottoman Hotel Park is a beautiful place in Wonderful area, surrounded with all the required facilities, delicious resturants and more. The staff are so friendly and helpful, they highlighted our experience in the hotel! The view from the restaurant is extremely beautiful with a delicious traditional Turkish food and of course with Turkish tea..
The Sultanahmet district is the centre of Old Istanbul, home to many of the city’s most famous attractions.
