Ayasultan Hotel
Ranked #355 of 1,173 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2011

When the Q Inn Old City was overbooked, they moved us to the brand new Ayasultan. It was definitely a step up.

The location is fabulous. You are literally steps from the heart of the action, but on a quiet street. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to consider ear plugs though. The building's sound-proofing is not the best and is across from a mosque, so the Call to Prayer is quite loud.

Breakfast is included, and you can enjoy it inside or out on the fifth floor with a nice view of Istanbul.

I think the beds in this hotel were by far the most comfortable I encountered during my travels in Turkey. It was hard to get out of bed, even with a great city light Istanbul to visit.

You can easily get around on foot but the Sultanhamet tram stop is very close. Just keep a close eye on your belongings, particularly while on the tram.

The hotel staff were very helpful and will provide a city map if you don't pick one up at the airport or tourist information.

You can travel from Ataturk Airport by public transportation fairly easily. If you have lots if luggage, the hotel can also arrange a shuttle bus at set times for 10€ (25 TL). A taxi will cost 40-45 TL and takes about 30 minutes (barring heavy traffic) to get to/from the airport.

I would highly recommend the AYASULTAN hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul.

We were SO lucky to literally stumble upon this hotel while wandering the streets of Istanbul. Only a month old, the rooms are pristine, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The only thing better than the great price, was the ultra-ideal location - the hotel is right in the center, but its side-street location meant the rooms were as quiet as could be. The staff was extra friendly too. The only downside - we stayed on the fourth floor, right beneath the rooftop terraza (where free breakfast is served!), so in the mornings we could hear the table chairs skidding on the floor, making it impossible to sleep any further (a simple fix, I think, if they just put some pads on the chair legs or something). I'm ULTRA picky when it comes to hotels, and I would 100% recommend this one!

I've been to Istanbul with my family this july . we needed 2 rooms , a single and a double with extra bed . Mr. ABDULSALAM was more than helpfull since he had agood command of english which is not so common in Turkey . He shifted up our stay at the hotel from gest level to a feel at home . Even modefied my other reservations at Bursa and booked ferry boat for us . We recived an e-mail to check on our trip home after our return . I feel this hotel is like home and the manager is my friend . The location is at wher youwant to be ,heart of sultanahmed . Short walk from every where as well as transports . Clean quick and efficient survice . New furneture , classic and modern if you prefer . I'm positive Ayasultan will be your anual distenation Istanbul .

Room Tip: Just explain what you need and the front desck will arrange .
