Reviewed 13 February 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and my birthday at this hotel. We stayed for 7 nights. The location is excellent being on a traffic free avenue in the heart of the old city just a few minutes walk from the major attractions and the tramway. We stayed on the 5th floor which had a balcony the room was a good size and very nicely furnished.
The best part of our stay at the hotel was the staff. Customer service at its absolute best. We would like to thank Hilmi, who arranged a surprise birthday cake at breakfast with candle and sparkler, we also got a rendition of 'Happy Birthday' from the staff.
We would also like to extend our personal thanks to Suleyman who was brilliant and helped to make our holiday a memorable one. An excellent ambassador for the hotel. We would love to return to this hotel and do not hesitate in recommending it.
The restaurant opposite, The New Hatay, is well worth a visit. It was good fun and good food. Thanks to Habib for contributing to a wonderful holiday

Room Tip: Choose the 5th floor with a balcony

Highly recommended. From start to finish the staff were very friendly and helpful without trying to sell you tours and extra services. On first email contact with the hotel we were sent detailed instructions on how to get from the airport to the hotel along with a map of the transport services.
The hotel is located in the centre of the old town, close to many local attractions, restaurants and tram.
We were greeted on arrival with a drink of our choice and given a brief introduction to the hotel. The reception area was open and pleasant, along with the nearby dining room. Bedrooms were large, centrally heated and beautifully decorated. Room and bathroom was cleaned every morning. The bathroom had an excellent shower and everything was spotless. Lots of hot water.
Large comfortable beds and no noise ensure a good night's sleep.
Breakfast was excellent with a varied menu, hot and cold food and drinks. Fresh fruit every morning. Hot food cooked to order. Friendly efficient waiters and chefs.
We did not eat in the Olive restaurant upstairs but it offered a very full menu at a reasonable cost, as well as a roof top view of the city.
We also used the swimming pool, but this was a bit too cold for us. Many spa services were on offer. Again everything was very clean.

Room Tip: I feel sure that all rooms are the same high quality

Me and my wife stayed at Hotel Sultania in January 2014 (6 nights) based on recommendation. We stayed in a room on the 5th floor. The room itself was clean and creatively decorated in Ottoman style and the bed was comfortable. However, the highlight of our stay was the customer service - there was always a member of staff on hand (day and night) to answer any questions (the hotel reception is manned 24 hours/day). The breakfast was also wonderful offering a choice of hot and cold food. The hotel is located within Sultanahmet, approx 5-7 mins walking distance from Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and approx 10 mins walking distance from the Bosphorous/Galata Bridge. There are a number of restaurants nearby that we visited and would also recommend - Olive Restaurant/Eon Dreamers Kitchen/Blu Kitchen. If I was to return to Istanbul, I would definitely stay here again. A special thank you to Serap, Gursoy and Ramzan for all their help in making our stay extra special.

I loved every single thing doing my stay in this hotel. People are very helpful. Decoration is amazing a true ottoman experience.
Buffet is wonderful, complimentary snacks and coffee in the afternoon. Will never stay in any other hotel in Istanbul. And I dont think that its overpriced. its well worth the money although I dont thinks its very expensive

My husband and I recently stayed at Sultania. It was recommended to us from a friend but after staying we realized why. The rooms are beautifully and creatively designed with many small details that helped make it an enjoyable trip. The beds are comfortable and we slept peacefully with no noise from outside or the hallway. The shower is strong and the lighting through out the room adds a nice touch. There was enough space for the two of us as we were touring around the city throughout the day anyway. It is in a safe area, Sirkeci, as we walked around at night to Hagia Sophia and blue mosque. We enjoyed the restaurant Olive as well as a late night drink at the pub around the corner. The staff was very friendly and we must say the breakfast was wonderful. It was good for people from every country with a full selection of hot dishes. If you want to be within walking distance of the historical district, grand bazaar, the spice bazaar, and galata tower and still able to easily travel to the Bosphprus side, Sultania Yasmak Hotel is the best choice!

Came with my two sons and stayed at the  Sultania for four nights. This hotel is very centrally located close to many important sights and the breakfasts cater for every single taste with a huge selection of hot and cold foods.What makes it special however is the staff, they are exceptionally kind and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them and they will go out of their way to make sure your stay is a happy one. They take pride in their work, the chambermaids give a different finishing touch to your bedspread every day, the waiters in the breakfast room are extremely attentive in the nicest possible way and the reception managers are always happy to spend time advising and helping you.

The only disappointment was the cost of spa facilities, cheap if you have a simple sauna but very expensive if you have any extras.

If the Sultania did mid-week (or anytime) packages, we would definitely come to Istanbul more often.

A wonderful hotel.

My wife and I spent a week at this hotel after reading all the excellent reviews, we were not disappointed. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, including one member of staff specifically dedicated to advising on tourist information, the room was spotless and there was plenty of choice from the buffet breakfast. The hotel was situated within easy walking distance of all the historic attractions with plenty of restaurants locally.
