Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A small boutique hotel located in Sultanahmet. Apparently it used to be a home before converted into 2 separate hotels (one of them is Sumengen Hotel). We stayed in deluxe room facing the street. Can get quite noisy at night as the opposite are restaurants. However it didn’t keep us awake. Bathroom had a bath tub and has reasonable water pressure. Room had basic amenities like mineral water (first day only), coffee/tea, tv, WiFi. Brekfast at rooftop and buffet spread was acceptable. Turkish style. Location is good as is close to tourist attractions and shops. If you walk uphill, there’s also a bazaar which means if you’re short of time, there’s no need to go to the Grand Bazaar. Generally it was a pleasant stay. If any complaints would be I asked if concierge would help me post 2 postcards (already stamped) for me as we were in a rush. The cards did not arrive to the destination. Lol Would not mind staying here again. The restaurant opposite has served yummy food too.

This was an outstanding hotel. A reasonably sized room, very comfortable and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was one of the better Turkish breakfasts that we had on our stay in the country. A nice view of the Bosporus at breakfast. The location is superb, within an easy walk of many of the important sites in the Sultanahmet district. I would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I just stayed seven nights at Sumengen Hotel and had a wonderful experience. The front desk staff were so helpful and the free breakfast was excellent: fresh each day and so many options. Our room on the fourth floor had panoramic views of the Bosphorus - magic to wake up to each morning. We invited some friends to join us for three nights and the hotel gave them a beautiful room on the sixth floor. I would stay again here next time. The Sumengen is ideally located within walking distance of great restaurants, tourist attractions and the tramway. So happy we stayed.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Ahmet and the other guy who worked at night I think he said his name was Bilecik were very helpful. They advised me and my friend on how to travel around Istanbul via the Metro. Also I was interested in watching Turkish football again Ahmet was informative on how to travel to the stadium and to purchase tickets. The hotel was clean the breakfast staff were lovely too. I liked the fact it was literally round the corner from the Blue Mosque and it made my week very memorable. I would definitely visit again. The hotel had Inci Bazaar round the corner which had everything you could purchase from Ornaments to Turkish Delight and Turkish Coffee. It had a roof top view of the Blue Mosque and the Bosphorus.

Actually, I can say that I found this hotel by chance. I had made a reservation for another hotel before I came to Istanbul, but when I got off the airport, my reservation was canceled by the hotel. I started looking for another hotel. The Sümengen hotel appeared in front of me, I called the hotel and without prepayment, the friends at the reception made a reservation and arranged a transfer, so I will come to the hotel from the airport. This was very important. I stayed 3 days. The hotel was very clean, the breakfast was excellent and the staff was very helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect. I would like to thank Melikşah and Enes for their help. I will come with my family next year. In a word, everything was beautiful.
