“Ideal for all the sights of Istanbul”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Osmanhan Hotel is ideally situated in the Sultanahmet district of Istanbul within a short walking distance of Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. A street of restaurants is just around the corner so the location is excellent. The best thing about the Osmanhan Hotel is the friendliness of all the staff who go out of their way to be helpful. The rooms offer space and comfort and the entire hotel is spotlessly clean. Breakfasts at the top of the hotel are ample and delicious.
This hotel is to be highly recommended.

I had an amazing stay at Osmanhan. All of the staff were helpful and friendly and the room was charming and comfortable. I had to catch a taxi at 3 a.m. to make my flight, and they still packed a breakfast for me, tea and all. Hamit, one of the owners, also owns an antique rug shop nearby. I did NOT think I would buy a rug because I had been warned about the difficulty of finding authentic rugs, but he is the real deal (Google "Motif Collection and National Geographic"!). He had WiFi in the shop, and I Skyped with a friend to show her how cool carpets in Turkey were--and she ended up buying a rug as well! I recommend Osmanhan with no hesitation.

A lovely old building very well placed for sight seeing, spotlessly clean and very good choices for breakfast. Ilknur only too willing to help with sightseeing and always enquired if a good time was had. All staff very welcoming and friendly. The plumbing was excellent. We had a standard room which some people may think a bit small but we found it adequate (and we had large cases). We spent four days and every day was exciting and pleasurable. Ilknur recommended The Tria restaurant just round the corner which was excellent. He enabled us to make the most of our time. The view from the terrace where you have breakfast is lovely, and there is a facility to use a large fridge in the kitchen and crockery if required. Well recommended.

We chose Osmanhan Hotel by reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were very happy in this hotel. The roof-top terrace has a super view of Marmara. Our room was well-equipped, clean and comfortable. We slept very well.
The owner Mustafa and staffs are very kind and love to make customers comfortable.
We enjoyed sight-seeing by walking to every places as Blue Mosque, Topkapi Place, Aya Sofya, Grand Bazaar, etc. We also enjoyed eating and drinking because there are all kind of cafes and restaurants around Osmanhan.
If you want to save your time and stay at a comfortable place, you should choose Osmanhan Hotel.

The Osmanhan hotel lived up to its reviews and more. Friendly staff, always willing to go above and beyond to help. A scrumptious breakfast buffet on the rooftop terrace. A superb location, steps away from the Blue Mosque, the Cisterns, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi. And within walking distance of the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market. Tram is nearby, too. A block away from Akbiyik St., home to some of the finest restaurants in Istanbul – Kathisma, Rumist, Alora. The rooms are spotless, the mattresses excellent. The hotel emailed us a few days in advance of our stay to offer taxi service from the airport – 30 EUR to be included on our hotel bill. Take it. We were pampered with spring water, Turkish delight, and a guided tour of some of Istanbul’s sights. Ask the front desk about the hotel owner’s carpet shop – Motif Carpets (20% discount for hotel guests, on the level, and a good place to get educated about hand-woven carpets).

Room Tip: This is a small hotel. Book well in advance.

This hotel has our 5 star recommendation. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, clean, brilliant roof top breakfast with magnificent views , fabulous shower and a firm mattress (so important to us!). There was always someone on reception when we past (we understand this is staffed for all 24 hours) , so we felt secure . And finally the hotel recommended a brilliant restaurant for our evening meals -we went there all 4 evenings

The rooms are small and that does not matter as everything else is so excellent - and you do not go to Istanbul to spend all day in a hotel room! Disabled people will need to check access issues as there are many steps to get to the upper level bedrooms and to the roof top breakfast restaurant

Many thanks to IBRYAM and the rest of the team

This is a small hotel in easy walking to the main sites in old town. Very charming, clean, quiet with excellent free breakfasts, free wi if and a roof top deck with spectacular views of the Bosporus. We stayed at the beginning and end of a tour of Turkey just a couple of weeks ago and at that time that great roof view was ours alone. Imagine your own private deck! The staff suggested we get a bottle of wine and enjoy. Very notable...the most helpful friendly staff. We really enjoyed our stay here much more than the "luxury" hotels the tour booked for us. Stay here!
