This hotel is great and we can't say enough about it. We stayed in a suite with a nice balcony. The room was spacious and clean, with a comfortable bed. Breakfast and wireless Internet were included. Breakfast was very nice, with a nice selection. We requested a late checkout and they were able to accommodate. Had an excellent massage in the spa.

We should also mention that they picked us up at the airport free of charge.

We would stay here again.

Loved the hotel Sultania! Near the Topkaki Palace. The bath room is a little odd, with the shower door and bathroon door the same door. It swings one way or the other. You have to like your roommate! Otherwise, great hotel. Give you an example. When we left, the bellman mistakenly onitted one suitcase from our taxi to the airport. We didn't notice enroute to the airport. The hotel called our taxi driver and made arrangements for another taxi to bring the missing suitcase to meet us at the terminal. How's that for responsibility? I was entirely impressed with that level of care. Very nice stay. Loved it and Istanbul.

Room Tip: The sink area is a little dark. Not so great for your make up.

we just loved this place!! i found this hotel after we stayed 1 night in the dodgiest place ever and needed a change asap. my husband who is a turk never heard about this place before so was quite skeptical but even his jaw dropped when we just entered the lobby.
first of all location, just 10 minutes walk from Hagia Sofia. not far away from old bazaar AND starbucks (that my hubby) made Sultania an excellent choice already!
Cozy, luxurious lobby with excellent check-in team. rooms... i don't think i have ever made so many photos of the hotel room ever!! granted, not very big in size, they are all so stylishly, smartly and tastefully decorated! everything is thought of and all that small space is very smartly arranged and organised. rooms are named by the names of sultanas, which is another small thing making this hotel different from anything else.
breakfast was lovely with good variety and quality of food was excellent.
there is also a terrace on the top of the adjusted hotel with great view and fine food and service for dinner.
i would be back there definitely. just waiting for the high season to end and prices go down a bit. our winter rate was excellent but looking at these summer rates make me shiver and feel so lucky that we stayed in Sultania in winter :)

At the end of a Black Sea cruise my wife and I spent three enjoyable days in Istanbul, one of our favorite cities in the world. The Hotel Sultania is on a quiet pedestrian-only street in the middle of everything. It is a 10 minute walk to the Haghia Sophia, Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace. The hotel is well-appointed, the rooms comfortable, the staff most helpful and courteous. The breakfast room is comfortable with cafe seating along the quiet street; the food is good. There are good dining selections right along the same street. Room rates are reasonable. It is a delightful spot and we plan to return.

Room Tip: Go for an upper floor with a window over the street.

We had the good fortune to stay at Hotel Sultania in early July and liked it so much that we stayed there again at the end of our trip, having originally booked another hotel. Ozlem in guest services is very friendly and helpful as is the rest of the staff. The rooftop terrace is a gem with a fantastic view of Hagia Sophia. The breakfast buffet is outstanding. The hotel's central location makes it very convenient for getting to all the main sites. I would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I were first time visitors. We were a little paranoid about the hotels in Turkey, however we booked at Hotel Sultania. Turned out to be one of the best hotels i have ever stayed at, also its close to everything... we are a picky couple when it comes to hotels!..definitely recommend to all..

Oh and there is this lady who is in charge of providing all kinds of information for people who stay at the hotel... she is AWESOME!! a great team of staff to be fair...but she was the best!!

What can we say that hasn't been said already !!!! Fantastic hotel, not for a moment did we think it would be half as good as we were led to believe. The room was just lovely & very comfy, we were a bit shattered after an overnight trip to our departure airport & on arrival the lovely Ozlem, made us feel increadibly welcome & continued to do so for our entire stay. The rest of our visit was great, very close to everything, saw as much as we could but didn't have enough time so will be back, will only stay at the Sultania now, we have been spoiled & don't think we would consider anywhere else in Istanbul.
Will see you all hopefully sometime in the New Year,
Many thanks for a wonderfull stay, big hug for Ozlem you are fantastic.

Room Tip: All rooms really good.
