Reviewed 27 April 2014

Weirdest part: our bathroom had a see-through door. Not to sound modest or prude, but this made times in our room a bit unnecessarily complicated at times. We ended up using the bathroom in their restaurant as much as possible. I still have not figured out why this room was designed with a see-through door.

Otherwise, the guys who work at the desk were super helpful and amusing; their dry humor and knowledge were a great combination for exploring this fascinating city.

The location cannot be beat. Also, be sure to check out the daily happy hour if you're around, which is a great deal and a nice break from vigorous sight-seeing.

I'm not sure if all bathrooms have the same set-up, so if you make your reservation, be sure to find out if you can get a room with a solid door.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has a bathroom with an opaque door

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
