“A small hotel with friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

The staff at the Sultanahmet Park Hotel were friendly and helpful, although there are a few points travellers should be aware of. The hotel has a great location in Sultanahmet, the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque are in easy walking distance as are the trams. Like any hotel of this period it suffers from things they can do little about. The lift is for two persons only and a tight squeeze. We had a room facing away from the Blue Mosque which was fine, we didn't need the views, but our local mosque was the other side of the road, and the minaret and its speakers were about 50 yards from our window. If you fancy a doze in the afternoon ( and who doesn't) you might need ear plugs.The road past the hotel is one of the busiest cross town traffic routes in this part of the city and is in constant use. Turkish drivers like their horns, and are not afraid of using them, at any hour of the day our night. The hotel can do nothing about this, it's not their fault but is something to be aware of. Breakfast was included in our deal, and is on a self service basis. For just a little outlay it could be so much better. What passed for orange juice, was more an orange drink, and several other guests mentioned this to us. It would be useful to have some description available to non Turkish speaking visitors of what the dishes were. No problems with breads or jams, but what were some of those things in dishes, and the dark pink meat that looked like spam...what was that? If you want a beer ion the hotel it's going to cost you, 10 Tlr for a small tin of Efes local beer. There are a couple of supermarkets near by where you can stock up on soft drinks, beer and snacks at much much lower prices. The hotel offers breakfast next to its very small garden. The photos on its website of this area are several years old, and whilst the garden is OK sitting out there is not a real pleasure....it should be!
The hotel arranged an airport transfer for us, and several taxis. All were fine.
Tuba is lovely, but she speaks the best English of any of the staff. Smoking in the garden area is a constant occupation for the younger members of staff, and at times I did ask myself what they all contributed to the running of the hotel.
Finally the bill was mostly in Turkish, and I had to use google to find out what Aciklama and Borc mean (although I am still unsure).

Room Tip: The rooms at the front will be far noisier than those at the back of the hotel

My husband and I plus a friend went there in April which is the best time of the year, not to hot/cold. Lovely hotel with very helpful staff that speak English. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable with on suite. The view from our window was priceless as it was overlooking the Blue Mosque. The breakfast is self serve and very good. This hotel is a very good choice as it is in the heart of Sultanahmet (Istanbul). It is within walking distance to all the main attractions and the tramway. Our thanks toTuba hanim, Ugur bey, Ali bey and Aziz bey for making our stay pleasant. I recommend this hotel for good service and accessibility. Istanbul is a magical place that is very busy and full of life but is hilly and uneven pavements but once inside the hotel you feel safe and secure.

Room Tip: Room 502 was overlooking the Blue Mosque.

I went to Istanbul last month with my family. Staff was very nice! Tuba and the others made all seemed like a real family...breakfast was a little bit poor but good, you can try Turkish tastes with those dishes. The room was too small but pretty!
I suggest you to put your hearphones on because you could be waken badly because of Turkish prays' announcements.

Very pleasant hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet (Istanbul). It is only 2 minutes from the Blue mosque, Aya Sophia and the tramway station. The rooms are clean and some of them offer a splendid sea view. The hotel also has a beautiful veranda and a garden where you can have breakfast. Moreover, the staff is very helpful and welcoming. Sultanahmet Park Hotel is the perfect hotel for an unforgettable stay in the Bosphorus city.

I went in that hotel in on March. Good location ( near Blue Mosque and other monuments ). The staff was very friendly, the room was very clean but too small for three person. The breakfast very good. In my opinion, this hotel is a very good choice for who go in Istanbul for holiday. If you send an email for book, don't forget : Tuba is a (very nice) MRS, not MR !!!
