The SAH Otel Apartments were just ideal for our 5 day stay in Istanbul.
Located centrally in Sultanahmet within 75m of the Hippodrome/Blue Mosque, a 3 minute walk to the tramway, a 5 minute walk to the esplanade and surrounded by a wonderful collection of restaurants, cafes and shops, the SAH was a good choice for us. Also being in a busy tourist precinct we had no issues about safety at any time of day or night.
This family run apartment complex has three rooms, each occupying a floor above the family's carpet business (from which they don't attempt to sell you anything...ever) with a wonderful large 24 hour terrace on the top floor offering panoramic views of Istanbul.
The rooms are very large (our’s having a double and single bed), a kitchen area, dining table, fridge, and separate bathroom. Presented immaculately, the rooms were cleaned thoroughly each day when we were out. The owners were always extremely friendly, helpful and generally went out of their way to assist, greeting us warmly when we were going out and repeating the same when we returned - but only if they had interpreted that is what we wanted. They even took care of our laundry when we enquired about local laundromats. Great service!
There is a huge range of hotels and apartments in Istanbul. Some flashier and more expensive, some less fashionable and cheaper. For the price we paid, this quality hotel offers exceptional value for a stay in Istanbul in our opinion. Staying in an establishment where the people who run/manage the facility are the owners and have a vested interest in who and what you are is refreshing.
