I recently had the pleasure of staying at Osmanhan Hotel for over two weeks while seeing Istanbul in full. I can tell you wholeheartedly that I felt more at home there than any other hotel I have been in my entire life. Firstly, the location in Sultanahmet is literally perfect, a very large amount of main attractions are only 2-3 minutes walk away, including Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and included all amenities that I needed plus more. The area is close to a busy street filled with great restaurants and things to do. Yet the room always was quiet and I never had trouble sleeping, no noise reached! Above all, the staff is what made my stay extraordinary, I'd like to mention especially Fatih, Mostafa and Mehmet who were magnificent! From what I've read in the other reviews of Osmanhan, everyone agrees that Fatih is simply the best! He knows everything about Istanbul, ask him about history or where to go or where to eat!
Breakfast is superb, Mehmet and Mostafa (the owner) were both there each morning to greet me. The service was top notch here as well, and of course the food was fresh as well as tasty! (Try the cold cuts!) On top of everything, breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace, which shows a brilliant view of the sea as well as Sultanahmet.
This was my first visit to Istanbul, and Turkey in general. I can also say that I will be staying here every time I visit Istanbul. I would highly recommend Osmanhan to ANYONE visiting Istanbul! I have never met such generous, gracious and kind hosts before, truly a magnificent hotel and staff!
