“Nice stay”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Breakfast aside, which can be a bit unorganized, the staff are friendly and efficient and the hotel in amenities and location is very good like most other reviews suggest it will. The point I will make here is that it seems the majority of people who write a review on here are those whom have read the reviews on here first before they book, hence the reviews are very similar and complimentary. While I can recommend this hotel, it deserves its praise, there are much better hotels in Istanbul that are rated worse, the Tripadvisor effect indeed.

This hotel was one of the big reasons I fell totally in love with Istanbul. The location is so great (to be in the neighborhood of Topkapi Palace and the Aya Sofia is amazing) and the staff are simply awesome. Sultania is in a neighborhood also of hotels, restaurants and shops, but its elegance stands out. And it is within easy walking distance of the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar. I actually walked many times during my stay of 8 nights to Taksim Square from the Sultania - a beautiful walk.

The breakfast is great, as is the cafe at lunch time. And it's a great base for women traveling alone - the staff are extremely kind. Your trip to this beautiful city will be enhanced by a stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: It looked to me like many of the rooms were similar, but I'm guessing that from the 4th floor yo...

What can I say. This hotel is just awesome. We got the honeymoon suite and I was wowed by the traditional decor. The staff were lovely and there was a good range of food for breakfast. The location of the hotel meant we didn't need to catch a taxi to see all the lovely sights of Istanbul like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar and Topkapi Palace. The bed was so comfortable and there was no noise at all from the streets as I had been led to believe by some reviewers. We were there during the Ramadan celebration so there was a lot of activities around. We cant wait to go back and this time we will definitely will be spending all my time staying at this hotel.

We've just returned from 5 nights at this hotel, and it pretty much lives up to the comments on TripAdvisor. We received a very warm welcome on arrival (probably a bit too warm for my British sensitivities) and had two rooms on the first floor overlooking the street restaurants. I was a bit nervous but there was no noise in the room at all; with the windows closed and the air con on we had perfect undisturbed sleep. The rooms are a bit small (especially by American standards), but the room was clean, the beds were comfortable and there was enough space to store clothing for 5 nights. The breakfasts were good too and everyone at the hotel was very pleasant. The hotel was conveniently located for all noteworthy places to visit, everything (well nearly) was within easy walking distance. It's a very pleasant place to start and end your day, and who visits a city like Istanbul to stay within the confines of your room ...

The hotel is brilliantly located, within walking distance of Topkapi, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. There is a tram line only a few hundred metres away with direct links to the Grand Bazaar and the Galata Bridge.

The staff are, probably, the best we have met anywhere. Professional, friendly and super-helpful.

Our room was a decent size and interestingly decorated. Each room is dedicated to a different Sultana(no, not a raisin).The AC worked perfectly but the wash hand basin is inside the room, separate from the toilet and shower facilities which are located in a glorified cubicle. A bit of a downer.

Breakfast is copious and caters for most tastes. The roof top restaurant is fairly priced with views of the Bosphorus and Hagia Sophia and the food is tasty and varied. The only fly in the ointment, but this is true of all restaurants in Istanbul, is the extortionate price of wine. Once again, the restaurant staff are superb.

Can't say enough about Sultania. From the moment you are greeted at the desk, to the really nice Turkish themed rooms, to the location, you can't miss with this hotel. It is located right in the old part of Istanbul just a short walk to the Blue Mosque area, close to the Golden Horn, right near many very good restaurants (Hatay being our favorite which is right out the door), and a very short walk to the Spice Bazar and Grand Bazar. Breakfast was always pleasant with a great staff serving you. When going to Istanbul, this is where you want to stay! Thanks Sultania for making our trip fantastic!

We spent our honeymoon in this beautiful king suite..its a lovely place, very friendly and helpful staff. Though the suite did not have a beautiful view, the room was so beautifully lit with lights. The complimentary breakfast was good too. Its centrally located which makes it an accessible place for all the attractions nearby. Really loved the stay there
