Nice hotels preferably in Sultanahmet area smoking rooms

Hi everyone! I'm planning a trip with the family next week to Istanbul and am really struggling to find a good hotel, preferably in the Sultanahmet area which has smoking rooms. So far all have a strict non smoking policy. Even a room with a balcony will suffice. Please help as I have to book and very little time. I'm open to hotels in another area as long as they're not too far from the major sights. Thank you!

Lash7, welcome to Istanbul.

Nena Hotel, "tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g293974-d294930…", and Niles Hotel at Beyazit, "tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g293974-d625168…", have small balconies. You can try these hotels. However you must secure their permission to smoke at the balconies, and not to carry any ashtrays or cigarettes into the room.

This is a response I received yesterday from the Erboy Hotel

Thank you for your email. We do have both smoking and non smoking rooms.

If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact to me.

Kind Regards

Yasemin

Whether you would get a room there at this late stage is obviously the issue.

hallyboy, Erboy is a great hotel recommended by many travellers: "tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293974-i368-k6452…". So if they have a place for you for your dates, then grab them.

I didn't lucky in either unfortunately. Either fully booked or nonsmoking. Will keep searching. Thanks again!

Try the Emin hotel in Sirkeci. Perfect location, and they do not mind if you smoke.

I've made a tentative reservation at Best Western Premier Senator Hotel Istanbul - Old City. Good rates plus smoking rooms. Is this hotel fairly close to the main tourist sites? Thank you!

I don't think it's a good location for a first time visit to Istanbul..There must be something closer available!

Edit: I just noticed that you're visiting Istanbul next week.You have left it very late since May is considered high season..If a smoking room is a must for you,then go for it..
