So, where to start with the Sultania..honestly cannot fault the stay at all.

From check in and general day to day banter with the reception staff especially Kahamran (hero) and Ramzaan, to the exceptional service and attention to detail by Birgul and the lovely politeness of Ozgur in the restaurant - the Sultania is BEAUTIFUL but its staff are honestly gems.

Within walking distance of Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Haghia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and Topkapi Palace, the main sites are at your feet!

Set on a very Italian-esque road in the heart of Sultanahmet - a must if visiting Istanbul. Gym is good, staff open at any time should you require, breakfast is buffet style (but there are delicacies such as homemade butter and FRESH honeycomb!), rooftop restaurant is very quaint.

We would not stay anywhere else when we visit Istanbul again (and we will be back!).

To the staff - thank you for making our trip so exceptional and for our presents. Birgul - we are practicing making swans and turtles!

My wife and I had a very comfortable stay in Hotel Sulatania for 3 nights in August 2014. Having read the reviews, we chose the suite room which was spacious and very comfortable with a good jacuzzi which was essential at the end of a long day visiting the historical sites of sultanahmet on foot. The location cant be beaten as it is probably the nicest place to stay closest to all the attractions from the Topkapi Palace to Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar and Spice Bazar, Galata Bridge etc. The only time we took a public transport was to Taksim Square from where we walked back. The staff are very helpful in advising you re your sight seeing itenary. Basically a homely small Boutique Hotel with all that you need including a great breakfast, spa, swimming pool, restaurants and a good breakfast to start your day.

We stayed at the Hotel Sultania on our first trip to Istanbul. We were admittedly a bit nervous, this being our first time to this large city, famous for how easy it is to get lost in. The Hotel Sultania was perfectly located within walking distance of everything that we wanted to see over the course of our stay,... Hagie Sophia, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, the Spice Market and the Grand Bazaar were all less than 15 minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean, and kept that way for our entire stay as well. The staff were also excellent, and helped with all of our questions. The unexpected highlight was the breakfast in the hotel. Fantastic every day with an enormous selection of fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese and cooked food. Would definitely recommend staying this hotel to anyone.

Stayed here 3 nights. It was PERFECT. location was perfect, service was amazing, room was very nice and I loved the seating area by the window. Wifi and business center came in very handy too. It's right by some great restaurants like Déjà vu and within walking distance to basically all the major sites. I will stay here again next time I'm in Istanbul!

Tip: if you need quiet to sleep, request a room away from the strip with restaurants. Our window was facing that strip and we had a hard time sleeping at times when people were loud. Even with this, I LOVED the hotel.

Stayed here for a short four-day citytrip, room on the fifth floor (Hammam style). While most Turkish hotels and restaurants give the uneasy feeling of being "overly friendly" for commercial reasons, at least these guys give you the feeling it's genuine and they enjoy looking afer you.

The hotel itself is on the smaller side, and part of a chain of two or three hotels in the same area (they also share the pool and fitness downstairs). From check-in to check-out, everything is done with a smile and friendeliness.

Our room was spacious, both bathroom and sleeping accomodation. The breakfast buffet is sufficient, they try to do it a bit continental style but a rather limited choice of things. The restaurant on top (Olive) is above par when it comes to service, the food itself is good and very tasty but not Michelin-star quality. Nevertheless, I would recommend for one evening. The city offers too much taste and options to only eat in.

The one downside are the trips you can book through the hotel (not the hotel's fault, but the company hosting the trips). We took the full day tour, worst tour ever. They rush you to all the landmarks, you have little time to absorb or ask questions. Felt like an Asian tourist who only have time to take pictures and then move on.

Location wise you could not ask for better. In walking distance of all major landmarks, also close to tram and taxi stops.

Clean, well decorated & maintained, great breakfast, central location (but without any excessive noise). Really friendly staff - especially Hilmi who helped track down my wife's baggage after it went missing on the way into Istanbul.

A nice boutique hotel suited to couples. We stayed here for 1 week and found that the location was quite convenient with the trams located just at the bottom of the walkway. The breakfasts were amazing with a good selection of fresh produce and staff friendly and accommodating. We had a deluxe room which was clean and cosy; however I feel that for what we paid I would have like to have a balcony or view of some sort and maybe a slightly bigger room. I would call what we had a studio sized room as we just had a window and the room was quite small for a “Deluxe” description. Our room was on the 3rd floor. The only other downfall was that the lift is quite small and sometimes you may have to wait a few minutes for it to come back. It is only a smaller boutique hotel so this is not a huge problem. If you are looking for an authentic experience this hotel certainly provides that and the restaurant just across from the hotel has amazing authentic Turkish cuisine which is nice to sit down to after a long day knowing that your hotel is just an arm stretch away.

Room Tip: Ask for more detail on the delux rooms, I recommend next grade up.
