Kupeli Palace Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 March 2013

My husband and I stayed in the hotel 5 night. The room was comfortable, but very small (mini bathroom). The hotel is very clean, the stuff very helpfull and the position very close to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Thought not suitable for persons with walking dissability, I can not mention another reason for not staying here. We would love to return.

We were in Istanbul for a week over Christmas and spent three nights at Kupeli Palace. We booked the Deluxe Double Room and were upgraded to the Suite! Needless to say we were well chuffed! The room and view as amazing. Service was fantastic. The room was cleaned daily and the staff were polite. Traditional Turkish breakfast was served everyday. Location is great and convenient, on a less touristy street. Would definitely book to stay again when we return to Istanbul.

Everything was just great about our experience at the Kupeli Palace Hotel. From the Hotel Manager Izzet to the room service staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Location is perfect as it was very close to the Sultanahmet Masjid etc. It only takes a short walk and you're at the heart of Sultanahmet. Breakfast was very good and even if they finish the breakfast they will make you some very nice omelette. This was a very heart warming hotel in Istanbul that we stayed in. It was a great way to start our first vacation in Istanbul. There was a good WIFI connection. The hotel was very close from the Ataturk Int Airport via a shuttle bus which took less than 30 minutes. I am very thankful to all the staff at the Kupeli Palace Hotel especially Mr Izzet who looked after us a lot and gave us all the advice we needed to have a great time in Istanbul.

We stayed in a double room with a jacuzzi bathroom. The hotel was an old wooden house that has been converted into a 5 floor hotel, including the basement which was the area used for the morning breakfast and gym/spa. Myself and Jasmine loved the memorable stay at the hotel and Allah willing we shall return and stay at the very same hotel.

A big thank you to Izzet and his staff!

Room Tip: Double room with a jacuzzi is a nice selection. If you have difficulty climbing staircases then avoi...

Kupeli Palace Hotel was the perfect choice for our trip to Istanbul. We really enjoyed every bit of it. Hotel Kupeli Palace is situated in a cozy part of Sultanahmet in a beautiful white house, that looks clean and welcoming from outside as well as from the inside. The hotel staff make you feel very welcome and can not do enough to help.
The rooms are spotless and cleaned every morning with the sheets and towels replaced. The beds in the hotel are the comfiest I have ever experienced!

The hotel is in a perfect location with only a short walk (10 mins) to get to the main attractions such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. However if you wish to get a taxi the hotel can arrange one for you with a wait no longer than 5 minutes and they are very cheap.

The hotel is situated in the heart of Sultanahment and is surrounded by some lovely authentic Turkish restaurants.

If I was to go back to Istanbul this would me my first choice and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Istanbul especially if they are looking for good value for money!

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors will be quieter and the WIFI doesnt seem to work on the 3rd floor

I recommend this boutique hotel as a great place to stay and visit the local attractions. This hotel is definitely good value for what they charge. The hotel is situated in a quite area of Kadirga surrounded with a mix of local life and small hotels. The staff was extremely helpful, polite and courteous. Breakfast was good and it was refreshing to have fresh healthy food on offer. The rooms are small but adequate, most importantly the room was very clean. The only down side was that the rooms were very noisy as you can here people talking and going up and down the stairs.I was there with my daughter and felt very safe whilst out and about. However, always be vigilant no matter what gender you are. Avoid eating at the posh restaurants and try the local small places where the locals eat. Try and visit the Eastern side of the Bosphorus. Taxis and trams are cheap to get about in.

Room Tip: Don't get a room near the staircase

What a wonderful stay we had in this hotel! We really enjoyed every bit of it. Hotel Kupeli Palace is situated in a cozy part of Sultanahmet in a beautiful white house, that looks clean and welcoming from outside as well as from the inside. The hotel staff makes you feel very welcomed and special, helping you with everything you need, very promptly and always with a smile. The room we had was small but furnished with great taste. It was very warm in the room despite the January snow. The breakfast was healthy and plenty and the breakfast room with an open terrace is the most enjoyable space of the hotel. I recommend this hotel because of its homy atmosphere and unique character.

The only drawback is that it is situated at the foothill, so you are facing a trip up-the-hill each morning if you want to reach places like Grand Bazar or Aya Sofia on foot. But it is all right if you are fit enough and enjoy walking. Plus taxis are cheap and very quick to get, once you ask the hotel reception for it. We waited for our taxis not longer than 2 minutes.
