“excellent smart hotel in the Old City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We have just returned from a 1 week stay at this lovely hotel, near to all the wonderful sights in Old Istanbul. We were met at the airport as promised, and the hotel is not too far from the Airport. on arrival quite late at night, we had a friendly efficient welcome. Our room was on the 3rd floor, street facing, and with a balcony...we could even see the dome and minarets of the Blue Mosque ! There was a welcome basket of fruit, and also some Turkish Delight in the room. Our room was lovely, clean, and comfortable, and also free Wi-fi which meant we could keep in touch with family and friends easily. Breakfast was served in the lower floor, and there was enough choice , buffet style, to satisfy everyone, and also fresh fruit - it was a good way to start the day. The staff at reception and in the breakfast room were always efficient and helpful . The hotel is very close to many of the most popular sights , including the Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, and Topkapi Palace. Also very close there are many good restaurants, and we also managed to visit a Hamam just round the corner. We enjoyed our stay in Istanbul very much, and the hotel made our stay even more enjoyable. We would certainly recommend this hotel. Best wishes

Room Tip: Top floor, street view, balcony .....well worth any extra charges

Excellent service and hospitality by the receptionist. Good breakfast and other arrangements. Rooms nicely done and very cosy and affordable. Nice location too.
Would stay again definitely if I come back to Istanbul.

Sultans Royal Hotel was quite difficult to find but it is actually really convenient and close to Sultanahmet. The service was really really good - friendly staff, and very helpful. The bedroom was a little small, but cosy and had the feel of Istanbul about it whilst staying modern.

Breakfast was varied and very good although their coffee was instant and a little watery.

I recall seeing a roof garden in a review somewhere but there is none.
WIFI was very inconsistent - you have to log in every day to use it and the connection does drop quite often so don't rely on it too much.
Hotel is at the bottom of a hill, so you will always be heading upwards, to get anywhere so not one for the elderly perhaps.

Overall I would recommend the hotel as it was really nice but if I were to choose a place more convenient I would pick Taksim for the people that are interested in nightlife, or a spot near the Grand bazaar for walking distance to all the attractions in the old town and the bridge. You can pretty much walk everywhere.

We stayed here for 4 nights on our first trip to Istanbul last week. It was very clean and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast was generous. The location is absolutely perfect for exploring the main sights. (There is about a 10 minute hilly walk to Blue Mosque etc so maybe its less suitable for less able travellers). I absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Istanbul

As 3 friends (our second visit to istanbul individually but first time together), we stayed for 6 nights in a triple bedroom which was spacious, very well maintained and it had a balcony from which we watched the beautiful sunset. They kindly left a kettle, free tea bags and cupcakes daily. There was also a collection of fresh fruit left for us on the day of arrival.

The staff were extremely friendly, approachable and helpful. They gave us tips and advise frequently, even when we didn't ask. The breakfast was varied and catered for different tastes.

We would definitely choose this place over any other if we were to visit again. Already missing it!

Each member of the staff was very warm, kindly and they gave us usefull information every day. Location is one of the best, very close to the Blue Mosque, but not on a crowded street and very quite during the night. We received a one way free transfer from the airport and an 8% discount for cash payment. The only minus could be the breakfast if you stay longer because they don't offer to many options. The room was big, cosy and clean, nice bathroom.

very well placed close to the Blu Mosque, quite silent, clean, large bathroom with many towels and bathrobe. Good breakfast and very friendly staff. The double bed is slightly small by european standards.
