This is small boutique hotel in the Sultanahmet area. The location is perfect: just a very short walk to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Also, the hotel is close to a number of restaurants and shopping opportunities. Staff is very friendly as well.

The Esans staff are really friendly, polite and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are spotlessly clean and ever-so comfortable. We stayed for four nights and really appreciated the tiny size of the place (only eight rooms), which means that the staff really get to know you, breakfasts are quiet and there's never any noise or hassle. Highly recommended.

Absolutely loved our stay at the Esans Hotel. The "Harem" room was spacious, quiet, and comfortable for the 3 of us. Everything was perfect--from the optional airport pick-up/drop-off, easy check in, lovely room, delicious breakfast, and especially the rooftop terrace with the view of the sea. One night we ordered take-away from a restaurant close by and dined on our own private patio with the spectacular view--great option for travel-weary guests. We could not have asked for a more ideal location--easy walk to the "blue mosque", Topkapi Palace, Aga Sophia, and both markets. The service at the Esans is exceptional--fresh-squeezed oj at breakfast, beautiful artisinal soaps in the bathroom, and a super friendly staff. Would definitely recommend the Esans Hotel.

My Mum & I spent 3 nights at Esans & absolutely loved it. It was recommended to us by a friend & we were so happy we stayed here. The rooms are beautiful, big & clean, its a small hotel, only 8 rooms, which is lovely. The staff are wonderful - super friendly & helpful, especially Edin, who was amazing. Breakfast was delicious, lots of variety. The location is fantastic - right by all the major sights of The Old Town & close to streets & streets of restaurants. I'd easily stay here again & wouldn't hesitate in recommending others to do the same!

Room Tip: If you can, requested a room on the upper levels as the walls/floors are quite thin so you can hear...

We really enjoyed staying in the hotel. Everything was excellent including the service, sleep quality, value and cleanliness. above all, the hotel was near most tourist attractions and that's what made our trip comfortable. we can't forget the staff was very nice with us.

Room Tip: higher floors have the best view to see the sea.

If you are only going for a couple of nights this is the area to stay in as all the old town sites are close by. This is a traditional hotel so don't expect glitz and glamour - it is furnished and run on traditional lines. Our room was spotlessly clean, quiet, with air conditioning and windows that opened. The down side as it was small and the bed very hard. The staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

Room Tip: Ask for first or second floor and a room with a larger bed
