We stayed here for 6 nights and it was wonderful. It's a full service hotel with the warmth and friendliness of a small B&B.
The hotel staff are very friendly and efficient. In most luxury hotels, you often get porters hanging around after they bring your bags hoping for a tip. Not here. The staff sort of magically vanish once their job is done, leaving you with the impression that your luggage has appeared in your room by magic. What also impressed us was the manner in which they treated our friends and family who visited us (they were staying at another hotel). They were treated with the same warmth as if they were staying at Sultania which we deeply appreciated.
Staying in the heart of the old city, we were prepared for a tiny room. However, we were amazed when we checked in to this massive suite. So massive that we had a tea party one afternoon and invited the 6 other members of our group over to the room! 8 large adults comfortably fit in and one gentleman was so comfortable he actually fell asleep in the chair.
The bed was of excellent quality. Truly the type of bed where you can hold a trampoline jumping party on one side while your partner sleep soundly uninterrupted on the other side. We woke up each morning feeling very refreshed.
It was amazing to have a Jacuzzi in our en-suite bathroom. We didn’t know we would get one until we checked in. As we stayed for an entire week the two large wardrobes were a godsend.
The breakfast spread is a real feast. There are so many delicious things to choose from that it’s almost and attraction in itself. Also, the hotel has guest relations officers who go round the tables chatting to guests during breakfast to provide tips and help on your plan for the day. We found this extremely helpful for exploring the city as we were able to move around the city like the locals do thanks to all the advice.
Lastly, the location of this hotel is superb. It’s literally on the doorstep of all the major attractions in Istanbul such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi palace. The Gulhane tram stop is a 2 min stroll down the street and there are countless restaurants in the area.
True gem of a hotel and highly recommended for a stress free holiday.
