What a beautiful hotel with lots of Turkish character. I went there with my husband for our 16th wedding anniversary, staff was very friendly and helpful, we did have a couple of little issues but it was resolved very quickly and efficiently. Breakfast choice is amazing with homemade butter, honeycomb, chefs making omelettes and scrambled eggs. Hotel is located in a hart of Istanbul with lots of very good restaurants just step away. I loved my stay there and thank you to all of the staff was looking after us.

Good location being close to the superb tram system. Only a short walk from most of the traditional attractions, but also to the Galatta Bridge and the ferries (ps use the public ferries - really cheap and more room than the boat trips).
The staff were brilliant. You always felt that they wanted to be friendly/ helpful, without being intrusive. There is also no doubt that the front of house managers are really smart and experienced people - they put their top people into these positions. I particularly mention Himli who was always interested in giving a personal insight into a country that he is so proud of. I should add that it was obvious that all the staff were affected by the miner tragedy, although they were far too professional to let it get in the way.
The restaurant was very good and we ate in the main rooftop Olive Restaurant one and downstairs in the bar twice (we were unusually there for 10 days and so got to know the area really well). For me however the highlight meal of the day was breakfast. If you are just looking for the standard bacon and eggs then the hotel is probably not for you. If however you want to be able to take your time over: a good collection of cereals, cold meats, local veg delicacies, honey on the comb etc then it is great.
The spa and gym were good.
We were there for 10 days so did some more interesting things. Himli got us tickets to a local basketball match which was a unique experience. I would recommend the ferry to the Anatolian side Kalakoy. Also using the ferry to the Princes Island (only 5 TL.
We also thought that Istanbul Modern was a fantastic use of a couple of hours.
If you have kids take them to the Panorama at topkapi tram station. It's a fantastic representation if the siege of Constantinople.
Any way hope you enjoy it as much as we did

This hotel offers a very warm welcome, the rooms are well equipped (like all hotels, it could do with more drawer or shelf space), the breakfast buffet provides an excellent start to the day, and the Olive restaurant with the rooftop panorama offers more excellent service and a good menu.
The icing on the cake is the location - easy walking distance to all the amazing sights of old Istanbul, and a tram stop just around the corner for visits further afield, plus a huge array of restaurants right outside on the street.
For the service, and the location, we couldn't have made a better choice.

Room Tip: A triple room will give you that bit more space to spread out.

We came to the Hotel Sultania last weekend for a mini break with friends. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were made to feel special. Every staff member that we spoke to in the hotel was warm, friendly and attentive. The attention to detail was amazing...from the welcome treats in the room...to the extras to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The yummy breakfast, fantastic location and mini gifts that topped off our stay! Thankyou !!

Room Tip: All rooms seem a good size. We had a double and a triple, both were pretty spacious.

The hotel is very clean and comfortable. It is an easy walk to the most popular attractions. We paid to have breakfast included in our stay. The breakfast each day was excellent.

The bed and pillows were very comfortable.

When we arrived we were greeted warmly and offered a beverage immediately. My first time having a Turkish Coffee was very good.
