“Good Stay ONLY for a few days”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Had a good stay at the Sultan Palace Hotel a week back for 5 days with my wife. Overall I would rate this place as an average Hotel as if you choose the normal rooms its like your in a cage too small except if you choose to stay in the Deluxe Superior rooms where the rooms are a bit spacious with an open balcony facing the sea which is not a good or great view as its quite far away. This hotel is quite affordable if you not looking out for any amenities, the location is quite good as most of the attractions are walking distances.
While I was there I did get attracted and found more hotels in the city centre which I would recommend you to check before choosing this hotel.
The Owner is quite friendly and a great person for advice.

Hotel has good location, only 5 minutes walking to Sultanahmet square. Room was clean, large enough and air condition worked properly. They have a very nice terrace which offers great views. Value for money was perfect my stay. Recommended.

This hotel is very nice, clean but very tiny room, which is not unusual in Turkey. You shouldnt be worry about the standard, cleanness and sleep quality. If you like the pictures and the location you will not be disappointed when you arrive. We stayed there 2 nights, June 2013, and liked it very much. The day after we found a similar hotel but a little bit cheaper in the area so we left.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in May and really enjoyed it. The location was perfectly close to the Blue Mosque, Cistern and other sites we visited. In the other direction was a more authentically Turkish neighborhood that we ate in and walked around on most nights.

We were upgraded to a room with a terrace upon arrival -views of the sea and the mosque next door were stunning. My favorite part of my time here was listening to call to prayer from several different mosques at once while out on the terrace.

The hotel is situated in the middle of a hill, causing us to walk uphill both ways on most days. This is pretty much unavoidable in Istanbul though.

Breakfast was decent. Fruit was always available for me to take an extra piece for later.

Would definitely stay here again.

Great service and location, only 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque. The rooms are clean and the rooftop terrace offers some great views. The owner is also really helpful. I would definitely recommend the Sultan Palace to anyone looking for a good value hotel in Istanbul.

The hotel is in old city, and very close to Blue Mosque and other historical sites. However, it must be kept in mind that the hotel is on a steep slope. Most hotels in that area are on slope. Rooms are clean and staff is really helpful. All amenities are available including free wi-fi in room. Breakfast is decent. Overall it a good hotel for the price.
