This was our second stay and again - we were more than satisfied.
Staff is very lovely and helpful, the rooms are very nice and clean, breakfasts are yummi, the location is fantastic (quiet street but right next to main attractions - Blue Mosque, Cistern,..), you can also walk to Grand Bazar or to embankment - we never needed public transport.
Price is reasonable - you get exactly what you pay for.
I am sure there are plenty of similar hotels, but I dont have any needs to try different one, I love this one:).

I found it very tricky to book a hotel for Istanbul as there were so many on offer all boasting to be the best however after much deliberation I chose to stay at the Modern Sultan Hotel and I can safely say I made a perfect choice.

Firstly, the location cannot be beaten, its a mere minute walk to the top 3 sights and with incredibly views to match.
The service was amazing, staff were so friendly and very keen to help me with any queries of what to do or see. They went way beyond the call of duty and made me feel so welcome and at home!
My room was a very generous size with a fantastic view and nice bathroom with all the extras you might need. It was also very tastefully decorated which is more than can be said for most of the other hotels I looked at.
Free, fast WIFI and a lovely home cooked breakfast where an extra bonus!

And all this for an incredibly good value price, I will most certainly be coming back here soon!

Best feature of this place is location. Walkable distance from Istanbul main attractions such as the Blue Mosque and Haya Sophia. In the heart of sultanahamed. Extremely friendly staff. They can arrange shuttles from the airport, which is the best way to get there. Taxi drivers got lost twice as we tried to find this hotel. Price reasonable considering you can walk everywhere and traffic in Istanbul can be very chaotic. We recommend it.

A good hotel with friendly and very helpful staff in a central location. An ideal place to stay and see the sights of Istanbul. Nice room, nice breakfast and very good value all round. A lot of the sights are within walking distance and the trams run nearby. There are also plenty of restaurants close by.

Would also recommend Frommers Istanbul Day by Day guide book with its maps. Their 'best of' sights for 2 days, and their Eminonu to Sultanahmet and Beyazit neighbourhood walks. Found there was more than enough to do staying in the old city, along with a trip across the Bosphorous in a traditional ferry too.

Our stay at Modern Sultan was very nice thanks to the friendly staff. The location is excellent very close to Hagia Sophia and other historical sights. The room with occupancy of 3 adults was nice. Toilet slightly small but clean.

Can't say enough about Istanbul and the Modern Sultan is perfectly located. Next Hagia Sophia and easy walk to all major sites. Tram station two minutes away for longer trips.

The staff makes this colorful, fun hotel a gem. I arrived in Istanbul with two issues. My medication as being held hostage to UPS and Turkish customs and my son's backpack strap ripped. They spent over an hour on the phone with UPS and took the backpack to be restitched at no charge. Amazing!

I stayed 4 nights in late Sept. The location in the heart of the old city was convenient for all the sights, and my room had a direct view onto Aya Sofia that was extraordinary.
The room was small, but spotless and nicely decorated. Friendly and helpful staff.
