My husband I stayed 3 nights at Hotel Sultania during our first trip to Istanbul. The hotel is ideally located to tour many of the main attractions of Istanbul - Hagia Sophia, The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cisterns are all less than 10 minutes away and the Spice Market, Ferry Ports, and the Grand Bazaar are easily walkable. The hotel itself is on a pedestrian street with a lot of restaurants which is convenient. As it's in the heart of the tourist sector, it does indeed feel touristy but that will be the case anywhere in the Old Town.
The room was clean and comfortable. They're decorated with a big of a Middle Eastern feel and perhaps a little kitschy. The sink is located outside of the bathroom and had minimal counter space but aside from that, we found the room perfectly functional. We slept well and were taken care of well by the staff.
This is a great hotel choice if you want to be right in the midst of all the main tourist sights. If you want something with a more authentic feel, you might want to venture across the Golden Horn.
