“Good hotel for the price bracket”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

We had a very comfortable stay here. It's a slightly further walk than a lot of the other old city hotels, but I think that's reflected in the slightly lower price. The pictures look somewhat garish, but in fact the decor is nice and original (when you're there). The staff were all great - helpful and courteous.

Room Tip: I didn't see the other rooms, but we were on the first floor and the rooms were a good size. Fro...

We stayed in Istanbul for a weekend in January and found this nice hotel. The stuff was always friendly and helpful, we had a really warm welcome. The rooms are quite small, but cosy and equipped with love. We always had the feeling of being welcome. We really enjoyed the breakfast which was made in a adequate Turkish manner. The hotel is quite central, you can walk to the most famous places in like 5 minutes. They have free WIFI and all together a really warm and charming ambience. We look forward of visiting this beautiful hotel again soon.

My husband and I stayed five days in September and felt pampered by the staff. We enjoyed the small size of the hotel, the decor, and the breakfasts; the room was comfortable and clean; and the location was within easy walking distance of the historical attractions and the Sea of Marmara. We felt transported to old Istanbul and recommend the Sultan Tughra wholeheartedly.

I spent a week at this beautiful Ottoman style hotel straight after the new year, and I was looked after like a true sultan! The Manager Mr Mert is very kind, efficient, professional and he truly cares about all visitors, making sure they are comfortable and happy. Mert and his staff make the environment very relaxed, and keep this small boutique hotel in an immaculately clean condition at all times. The decoration shown in the photos was the main attraction before I booked to stay, but seeing the decor in real life is mesmerising! I absolutely LOVED my stay here and I will return as soon as I can :) I highly recommend this perfect little palace, as a get away from the stress of everyday life. Thank you Mert, and all the staff for giving me a great start to 2014, S.H - London - UK

Charming little hotel, literally a couple of blocks away from the Blue Mosque. The hotel is located on a quite side street. You are greeted with some Turkish Delight and a bottle of wine, and the staff is alway very eager to assist you with any questions or requests you may have. The room we stayed in had a large mirror on the ceiling as part of the decor, which may or may not be to everyones liking :). If you do stay here, and are planning to travel by taxi, have a print out with a map and the hotel on it. Not all taxi drivers know the hotel or the little street that it's on.

Sultan Tughra hotel is a small boutique hotel, only 9 rooms and all of them are decorated in a "sultan style", lots of deep red and gold is every where, the wall papers, the big mirrors and lovely old style phone.
The bath room has a shower only with a very strong stream of hot water- that was lovely.

We were afraid that the red and gold  would be over the top for us but it was the opposite, we loved the decoration.
In our arrival we had a lovely red wine - supplementary along side with some nuts.

The rooms and the hotel is heated 24 hours and it felt very Cousy. The receptionist - Mert is a lovely guy that would help you if you need any help or have any request, always with a smile and if it's appropriate he will joke with you on whatever subject. ( I learnt from him a word or two in Turkish in exchange to okey dockey, which he said that he will never forget).

Our stay was great, but there are a few little things that we think that can make the experience even better; the breakfast is a bit boring and a bit basic: small pieces of cheese, tiny pieces of bread, eggs... It could be nice to get the option for big slices of bread and a toaster, or a fruit salad, or anything sweet to finish off the breakfast, different cheese everyday etc.
Also we got a towel with a big hole in the middle- a shame to miss it.

Overall, lovely hotel, perfect for couples who want to have a relaxing in a quite
Area. 
   

Room Tip: The hotel is located down hills, not good for people with foot problems
