“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

Sultans Royal is a nice small hotel in Sultanahmet. The hotel is located on a quiet street a short 5 minute walk down the hill from the Blue Mosque. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast included many fresh grilled vegetables, olives, breads and jams. The room was small with low ceilings that caused a few headaches during our stay. Bathroom was also small but functional. My only complaint was there were no washcloths. Air con and wifi worked well. The room walls are paper thin so plan accordingly.

The Sultans Royal Hotel made us feel like their family. The staff were friendly and they happily accommodated us off an early flight with breakfast and our room.
The front office staff our fantastic, especially Ersin Cicek. He made our stay so easy. He suggested local places to dine, how to get the museum card, how to use the transit system and places to go and see. A wealth of information. A credit to the hotel.
The hotel is located in a great area of the old city. Not too busy, but close enough that you are central to all of the sight seeing, but tucked away that you have the quite you need to get away from it all.
The rooms are good, clean and comfortable. We were on the top floor with a terrace.
As a family we would recommend this to families.
Enjoy Istanbul and this lovely hotel!

Sultans Royal is a wonderful hotel. I was there with my parents for a family vacation, and we spent 5 nights here. Not only is Istanbul beautiful, but this hotel is in the perfect location for the major sights in Istanbul. Located in Old Town, close to the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Aarcheological Museum and great walk to the Grand Bazaar. There are wonderful restaurants all within walking distance from the hotel. One of our favorite "neighborhood" places was Karina Fish House 3 buildings from the hotel ! It is about a 7 min walk to the tram to get to New Town, and the transportation is very easy. Even announcements in English for the stubborn Americans not willing to try to learn a bit of Turkish.
One of the best parts of the hotel was Ersin. He was so helpful to find the local good spots, Kokoreç and with is fantastic sense of humor, he became part of our family very quickly! He was very patient with me while helping teach me a few key phrases in Turkish.
So glad we stayed here and cheers to new friends and a great place to come back to !

This small hotel, tastefully converted from a pretty house, is in an ideal location in a quiet street close to the Blue Mosque. It has excellent modernised rooms with air conditioning and double glazing. The rooms are not large but very well appointed with good en suite bathrooms and free wi-fi. They serve a really good Turkish style breakfast in a small but bright dining area. The biggest single plus is the overall genuine friendliness of the staff who could not have beem more helpful. Very highly recommended.

The best thing about this hotel is the location -a quiet street close to the Blue Mosque but there are many similar hotels in the neighbourhood to choose from. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean.But I expected more for the price.
Is has been recently renovated but not stylishly -glitter on the ceiling decorations, tacky coloured glass etc. Furniture is basic in the small rooms- a small wardrobe with six hangers for two people,two small drawers -that is all the storage space! The shower was in the bath [which had no plug,nor had the sink].The bed was very short.The small vase of flowers was left throughout our stay tho' all the petals had fallen.The walls were so thin i could hear the person in the next room snoring!
Having read of the great breakfast I was disappointed to see old omelettes on a warming disk and orange 'juice' which was cheap orange squash. A choice of four types of olive didn't compensate.All the while loud music videos play on a large screen.The bread ,honey and tea was good.
Overall a disappointing stay.

Sultans Royal provided *the* best service out of all the hotels we stayed for this trip (which spanned 4 cities across Turkey, including a 5-star property.) We got to know 3 of the front desk managers and they all had good spoken English and were very helpful. Like other tourist-oriented hotels there were sightseeing packages available at the front desk, but at no point did the staff get pushy when we indicated we were free-and-easy travelers.

We had to check out at a very early 4.30am on our final day, and the front desk even proactively asked if we'd like to have complimentary packaged breakfast! We found the location excellent for sightseeing around Sultanahmet (short 5-10 minute walk to the Blue Mosque) yet well insulated from the early morning and evening calls to prayer. There literally isn't a negative thing to say (ok, if we had to nit-pick, the WIFI was spotty at times.) Highly recommended, and we'd go back without hesitation if visiting for sightseeing again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 205 and found it excellent and spacious. Third level facing the street is apparent...
