I'm a travel agent and stayed at the Saba Sultan Hotel in June together with friends. It's a brand new hotel located in the sultanahmet area (best location in Istanbul), very nice rooms and friendly staff! Breakfast buffet is small but definitely OK, nice restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Roofterrace with seaview, perfect to enjoy the sunset. Best hotel in Istanbul within this pricerange, I recommend it to al of my clients!

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the hotel have better views and mostly with balcony

We stayed here for the second time and again had excellent experience. The hotel is in an ideal location for all the historic sites (Topkapi, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Archaeological Museum etc) and also convenient for traditional bazaar shopping and public transport to explore further afield. Local good restaurants abound, with plenty of choice of traditional turkish and more international cuisine. The hotel itself serves a traditional turkish breakfast but with lots of choice. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, with safe and fridge for cold drinks. Clean linen daily. Only criticism was not a great deal of clothes storage space. All staff friendly and very helpful. Would certainly stay there again a 3rd time.

We found our 4 day stay at Hotel Saba Sultan in the heart of old Ottoman Sq, not only amazingly central to all we wanted to see, but very clean and friendly. What the bedrooms and bathrooms lacked in size was made up for, by the views and the quiet location, and amazingly friendly staff.we enjoyed the homely, though typical Turkish daily breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a view over the Bophorus. Higher levels probably best

Excellent hotel.We went with a 9 month baby, had no problems at all.The staff was very helpful and courteous.The rooms are not small as ours had a baby cot and still it had alot of space.The hotel is only 5 min walk from the blue mosque so perfect place and the tram station is 10 min walk so you can go anywhere.
Will definitely recommend it.

My husband & I (no it's not the queen) stayed here in June & enjoyed our stay very much. The location is great for the blue mosque, sultanhamet square, topkapi palace & the hagia sophia. Its also not too far from one of the tram stops to get you to further attractions such as Galata bridge. its about 10 minutes easy walk to the above mentioned places & 30 mins stroll to Grand Bazaar, maybe less if we knew where we going.
The staff at the hotel are very friendly & helpful. The ladies in charge of the very good breakfast buffet are also very helpful & will make omelette to order if asked. There is plenty of choice of cheese ( some very salty but I guess its traditional Turkish cheese) plus some cold preserved meats, very fresh tomatoes & cucumber. A choice of 3 cereals, bread & sweet bread, yoghurt with lots of syrup flavours & honey, dried fruits tea & coffee.

The hotel room was very comfortable but it is the first place that we have ever stayed in that did not have any toiletries whatsoever, not even soap, just towels & toilet paper. I don't know if this is the norm for Turkey but as we travelled with just hand luggage it was a bit of a surprise not to find shampoo.

The bed was very comfortable & clean, there was some noise from the street, bottles in bins & at one point a turkish soap opera of women shouting in the street, not under the control of the hotel I know. There was noise from the room next door but I don't know if that was because of thin walls or a very inconsiderate guest having his TV on extra loud at 1 am.

The tea & coffee facility in the room does not include milk again as is the Turkish way.
All in all highly recommended.

Room Tip: take your own soap & shampoo.

I've stayed in this lovely 4-star boutique hotel for 4 nights with my two friends. We all had our own room on the 1st and 2nd floor which were decorated in a different style. The Aya Sophia, Topkapi Palace and The Basilica Cistern are only 5 min. on foot from the hotel. I would recommend dinner on the roof of surrounding restaurants and hotels like the Seven Hills. We would also like to thank all the staff for their genuine smiles and helpfulness. A special thanks to Ms. Tugba Gayret who made us feel very welcome. We couldn't praise her enough for her professional approach and kindness. When waiting in the lovely, colourful lobby we were offered complimentary tea and coffee and received some great tips on what to visit in pitoresque Istanbul. I would definitely recommend this hotel as it has only 17 rooms, hence service is very personalised, location is perfect, rooms are typically squaky clean as one would expect in Turkey and most importantly staff are polite and smiley.
