Highly recommended hotel.
The hotel is in a great location, really close to all of the Sultanahmet attractions such as the Blue Mosque, only a few minutes walk away.
The rooms are nice and the breakfast is fantastic. Lovely grilled veg, breads, jams, etc.
Good speed, free wifi in the rooms too.
The great thing about he hotel is the staff, all the staff are really friendly and very helpful.
We stayed more than 6 days and got free pick up and drop off to Attaturk airport.
btw - if you are a fisherman, make sure you have some pictures of your fish on your phone to show Ersin :-)

I found this hotel quite by accident on Trip Advisor and choose it for the reasonable rates. I was travelling with my snowboard team to Russia and we had a long layover in Istanbul so we decided to spend the night and take in some sightseeing.

We arrived at the hotel and Ersin greeted us like we were family. Everyone at the hotel was so friendly and accommodating. They supplied us with tons of information on what to do and were genuinely interested in getting to know us.

The rooms were spacious, bright and clean. Breakfast was great with tons of variety. Overall, a great little gem among many to choose from Istanbul. I highly recommend!

The first thing I would like to comment on in agreement with most other reviewers is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at this hotel. Whether it was behind the reception desk, servicing the breakfast room or cleaning the bedrooms, the service at this hotel was excellent. Having stayed at much larger establishments recently, I had forgotten what it was like to be treated as a treasured and welcomed guest. Whether it was ordering taxis, preparing sandwiches for an early morning trip to the airport, providing us with an Istanbul card (10TL deposit usually needed), supplying a bowl of complementary fruit for our room, the staff at Sultans Royal Hotel could not be more obliging. As for the hotel itself, it has been recently refurbished so all features are new and modern. It is situated close to the Blue Mosque and other major tourist attractions but in a quiet street away from the usual tourist-studded avenues. Our room was en-suite with both bedroom and bathroom being of ample proportions. The upper rooms have balconies to the front but I do not know anything about the interior sizes. There might be some external air-conditioning action going on in the summer from other buildings so an upper room might be preferred for the lighter sleeper. However, the street to the front appeared to be reasonably quiet. Breakfast is plentiful and varied and should cater to all tastes. We stayed here for four days and after long hours spent sightseeing, returning to this hotel really did feel like coming home. Highly recommended for location, service and accommodation, all for a very reasonable price.

I will gladly add our voices to the many highly favorable reviews of Sultans Royal Hotel. What a fine place. It is located practically in the shadow of the Blue Mosque in a great neighborhood. The staff is so friendly and helpful! The rooms are small but very modern and clean. Breakfasts are excellent. We really like everything about this place and will certainly stay there on our next trip to Istanbul.

We stayed at this lovely small hotel from 9th February till 11th February 2013, we arrived late at night and were starving after a long journey, but the staff at the hotel knew how to make us welcome and made sure we got something to eat at almost 2 a.m. The room got cleaned and fresh towels and bedsheets changed every day. This place is highly recommended and perfectly situated nearby Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque etc..

We spent four nights here in August 2012. The hotel staff is extremely helpful and friendly; they go out of their way to be of service. The room was spotless and comfortable, with a nice bathroom, and the AC made for a fabulous refuge after a hot day of sightseeing. The breakfast room was clean and welcoming, and the food was delicious and plentiful. Prior to our arrival I was disappointed that we didn't book a hotel with a rooftop terrace, but the Sultans Royal Hotel made me completely forget about that. You can easily walk to all the wonderful Istanbul sites from here (the Blue Mosque is about 10 minutes walk), plus there are good restaurants and little grocery stores very close by. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

Hotel is small but rooms are comfortable and clean. Position is perfect and staf is very kind and helpful, especially Ersin. Breakfast is cold and it is only reproach. Next time I visit Istanbul I'll stay there.
