Reviewed 21 March 2012

Invited by friend in Turkey and stay for 1 week.
Cool places near hotel to feel the Byzantine!
Clean, great service in front desk.
Also, this hotel has the best restaurant in Istanbul. I really enjoyed the food.
Recommend to all the travelers who's planning to visit Istanbul!

Can't comment on the hotel because I only used the restaurant , food, service, staff were incredible... It was a pleasure to dine at the Sura and will certainly visit this establishment again. Probably the best food I have tasted during my time in Istanbul !

We did not stay here but dropped in for lunch midweek, about 1400. Only two other tables were being served and we experienced a lovel lunch: service was GREAT and meal was first-rate in every way (especially the soup and stuffed eggplant). It is only a few blocks from the Sofia on an interesting street in an active retail neighborhood.

Sura design hotel is a sweet, upscale boutique hotel in the best location to see all of Istanbul's amazing attractions. My room was lavishly decorated, with a balcony looking out at the Blue Mosque. What a site at night! The staff was so eager to please that I felt like a queen and the front desk people--Hassan and Neil--couldn't have been more helpful. They suggested restaurants, called for a taxi, and went out of their way to help when I needed it. An historic hammam is connected to it as is a restaurant and cafe. It is in walking distance to Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc. Right in the middle of everything with great restaurants all around. It has just officially opened and the roof terrace hadn't opened when I was there but it will have a fabulous view when it does. In crowded Sultanahment, the hotel even has a garden and cafe exposed to the outdoors. It's design is high end (with a touch of over-the-top), stylish and creative.

Room Tip: Try for a room with balcony with view of the Blue Mosque.

We were a group of 28 running the Istanbul marathon and staying there for 4 days.
The hotel is brand new, pretty luxurious but a little bit ostentatious. Still some things are missing, no curtains in some rooms ...
But the real issue is the service, if you need nothing you can ask the reception unless you will be disappointed. Service people are not speaking very well english, they don't really care about the comfort of their hosts, if you ask something you will be told that it is not possible or you have to do it by yourself ...
Let's hope they are just starting and need to warm up.

We are in the hotel now as I write this review and the hotel just opened yesterday. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are larger than normal. The staff is trying oh so hard to please and they are very nice. The issues are related to the hotel being new. So far the Internet connection is not on par with what is expected. We get 2 bars on the connection so our VoIP telephone won't work. They keep promising to have someone correct the problem but so far (2 days) no luck. There is no terrace or patio available yet as those are under construction. However the area is beautiful and close to everything you could want to see. We will be here 1 month more so will add to this review as we progress. So far though we are happy with the hotel and do recommend it.
