An amazing experience due to Semih that really put a big smile on our faces. Walking distance for many attractions. The most beautiful rooms I've ever seen around. Awesome and relaxing moments in this lovely evening: two thumbs up :)) highly recommended

Sadly we were only here for one night but thanks primarily to the staff the stay was a memorable one. From the moment we entered we were made to feel special and appreciated. We stayed in a standard room which was well equipped but a little small. Breakfast was great with a good choice of foods. The hotel is centrally located which probably explains why there is no parking nearby.

Everything was perfect! I love the room, the accommodation, the services and the people here ( especially Semih - ( girls he is sexy!! :) . The spa also is a place of heaven. I strongly recommend!
Ps: I almost forget about the roof top restaurant - the atmosphere is very nice and the view is amazing!

Our trip details - 2 nights in August 2014 in double room with balcony. My wife and I went for a few days break in Istanbul. If, like us, you have never been to Istanbul before then this review is for you:

1. You need to be based in the old city. Sultania is simply perfect for this, as it is in some charming narrow streets (traffic-free) five minutes walk from Sultanahmet, which is where you will need to be. It's also very near tram stations which will help you get around cheaply and easily if you want to go further afield.

2. Istanbul is frankly mad and you need an oasis of helpful calm with good English-speaking staff. Sultania has that and is staggeringly quiet. Once in our room we heard nothing. Even the aircon was whisper quiet and easily adjusted.

3. Breakfast was exceptional and varied, served by highly attentive staff. We also had tea and coffee facilities in our room (unusual in Turkey I believe).

4. The room was really big, well equipped and superbly decorated (exactly as shown in the room picture associated with this hotel entry on Trip Advisor). The bathroom was perfect with an enormous walk in shower, great for two people!

5. The roof top terrace restaurant and bar is lovely, has great views of the seafront and Hagia Sofia and, for us as visiting Brits, was really pretty cheap (I guess because the exchange rate works in our favour). Note that alcoholic drinks are European prices but that is normal in Turkey and this hotel is the same as everywhere else in that regard.

6. The restaurants opposite and next to the hotel (one serves good, traditional Turkish (kebabs etc) and the other serves Ottoman cuisine) are both fantastic and really well priced at less than £10 for main courses. There is little need to go further for food for a few days.

Overall this is one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had and I simply cannot fault it with one tiny exception: The 'creamer' provided with the tea and coffee facilities in the room was disgusting and made my tea taste vile. Take your own! In every other respect - PERFECT - and would gladly go back. THank you Sultania.

Room Tip: Use their offered transport to/from the airport. It's reasonably priced and good quality.

Just got back from Turkey and our stay at the Hotel Sultania in Istanbul. The hotel is in a perfect location for visiting the main historical sights of Istanbul. It is in walking distance to the Blue Mosque and the water front. It is in a great location.

Breakfast was the only meal we ate at the hotel but it was excellent. A good choice of hot and cold food. I especially appreciated that the hot menu was changed everyday we were there. We stayed three days.

Our room was 1504 and I can highly recommend it. It was on the top floor and away from the street. It was quiet and the private patio, while not having a view was comfortable and quiet. The bed and bathroom were great. The only thing I did not like was that the tv was built into a mirror and was small....but that is a minor complaint.

The spa was nice, small and quiet. The service in the spa was good.

Overall this is a terrific small hotel with excellent and friendly staff.

Looking for the perfect hotel in Istanbul then look no further than the Hotel Sultania. Located on a picturesque street in the heart of the old city it is within a 15 minute walk to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and Galata Bridge and ferries. The Covered Bazaar is 20 minutes or three stops away on the tram (fare: two Lira). The Gehane tram stop is five minutes away. As for the Sultania, it is more like a boutique hotel. The rooms are modern with all of the conveniences and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms are excellent with great showers. We had one of the smaller rooms with a balcony, but we thought it quite spacious Opposite the bed was a large mirror that turned out to be a television screen. The décor of the room was very tasteful. The bed was very comfortable. It was very quiet so one can have a restful night. The hotel provides a buffet breakfast that should satisfy with a huge variety of items including freshly made waffles. Service is very friendly and efficient. The neighborhood is very quaint and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. Exiting the hotel to the left and walking two blocks will bring you to Hoca Pasa Street which is like a restaurant row with reasonably priced food. All in all, the Sultania is a marvelous place to stay to enjoy this fascinating city.

Room Tip: We had a room with a terrace on the fifth floor. We understand that there are also rooms with views...
