Reviewed 27 April 2014

Staff at the Senatus went out of their way to make sure we had a good stay. We partic appreciated being allowed to check in 5 hours early after a loooong journey. Rooms are nicely decorated and spotlessly cleaned every day. We had several good meals in the restaurant too (try the sea bass and king prawns) and loved the breakfast. Hotel is right in the middle of Sultanahmet so 5 mins walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia. Street has a touristy but not a tacky vibe. We weren't disturbed by noise but were at the back of the hotel. We'd definitely stay again and would recommend it.

The Senatus couldn't be located in a better spot. All the main sites are within 5 minutes walk. The rooms and facilities are very clean and modern, all the staff are really friendly and helpful. Hotel organised airport for us and made dinner reservations. The hotel restaurant and bar are really comfortable and great for after tourist drinks. The buffet breakfast is perfect for a day of visiting all wonderful tourist spots.

This hotel is a terrific choice and the previous reviews are accurate. The location couldn't be better ...right near the big SOS like Hagia Sofia but on a beautiful quaint street. Clean modern rooms with bare floors which is essential for me, great luxurious showers with hot hot water, clean linens, small fridges in the rooms, very nice staff, and a nice breakfast buffet. Small improvements could be made in improving the comfort of the beds and diversifying the breakfast options and coffee quality.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators

Very welcoming. Staff super attentive and helpfull. Perfect location, with one of Istanbuls best restaurants literally right across the street (Magnaura cafe & restaurant).
Rooms are very small, walls are very thin (so I guess it's not the best place for honeymooners) but as clean as nothing else I've stayed at.
Breakfast is excellent (except for the "orange juice").
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Economy is small and without a view, but still nice.
