A little Overpriced. I've been to another hotel in sultanahmet and enjoyed that one much more. Check in was ok (asked for extra key, he said to come back later). Asked for a map - he wanted me to buy it (other hotel gave it for free). The rooms are nice, pillows sucked very flat, you need 3 to equal...

This is a boutique hotel on a main artery in Fatih, Istanbul. There is a subway station very nearby which means easy access to several places when the heavy traffic of this wonderful city scares travelers. In accordance with its name this hotel is decorated in a rather ornamental design in Ottoman style. I enjoyed a cosy room and comfortable...

Room interior are uniquely design. However the bathroom was very small. Bath tub comes with built-in screen to prevent water spillage but the screen door is rather small. If a person is very fat or obese, you wont be able to enter the tub to take a shower. Hotel is by the roadside but hard to locate. Breakfast was delicious!

I liked the location of Ottoman's Life Hotel which is in Fatih. It takes about 10 minutes to reach the major sights in Sultanahmet by tram. From Ataturk Airport it is a direct ride on Metro Line 1A (Aksaray Station). Historia shopping mall is on the opposite side of the road. The lobby and rooms are nicely furnished in an...

We traveled to Istanbul in June 2012 with our 2 year old twin boys. The hotel was nice but the rooms were very small and cramped. The staff was helpful and friendly and assisted in planning our daily travels. The room could have looked bigger and better had the furniture and decor not been so loud and garish in their...
