Sultan Tughra Hotel
Ranked #121 of 1,175 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 March 2014

The location of this hotel is great for all the key sites of Istanbul - the Ayia Sofia, Tokapi Palace etc and the surrounding area is safe and lovely to explore - right in the heart of Sultanhmet. The décor of the hotel is amazing and runs throughout the hotel. The rooms are vibrant and elegant and extremely clean (although they could do with a bit more light!). Mert and his staff are extremely attentive and can help with all your needs from an omelette at breakfast to organising a trip to a local hammam or an airport pick up. A great place to stay - I hope to visit again soon!

It is a nice hotel,very clean,good,very helpful personnel.The decoration is a bit exaggerated.
I wanted to explore Sultanahmet area and grand bazaar ,so specially stay thete for 2 nights.
It is very touristic area,full of historical monuments but a bit out side the daily life of the İstanbulite.

Sultan Tughra is located in Sultanahmet area (old city) on the doorstep of all the main attractions Ayia Sofia etc. It does not offer 5 star chain hotel sizes. Instead you can enjoy continuous boutique style personal attention from Mert and his staff. They satisfy needs you didnt even know you had. Coming back from a long day walking and sightseeing in cold weather you are warmly greeted and offered a free warm cup of tea (even if you have already checked-out in the morning). Breakfast room is small but cosy with all the range of a big breakfast buffet. Wifi is free of charge and you can get it anywhere (room, lobby or diner). If you are lucky you can be upgraded to the suite upstairs with a jacuzzi bath and excellent matress!! If not, you will still be accommodated in a small but cosy bedroom with traditional style velvet red and gold decoration like you are in the harem. Bed was excellent and so was room temperature. We didnt take any of the suggested tours as we thought they seemed very touristic to us. Do take the airport pick up though if you can afford it. It's an easy way to reach the hotel's little alley and also the co-driver will share with you a few tips of what to do in Istanbul. Or even which area of the city goes for Fenerbahce and which for Galatasarai.

The hotel is very well situated - short walking distance from the main sights, but in a quiet street, so it was very calm and peaceful. The service was excellent and very friendly and discreet. The room we had was quite small, but lavishly decorated to the smallest details as the photos show and very clean. Breakfast was nice, both European and Turkish dishes. All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much.

This hotel is a small but very nice hotel, almost like a bed and breakfast. We had a great time, great staff and unlike what other people have said, we found it very close to all the important sights. Keep in mind that since it is a very small hotel, privacy depends on what room you get.

Sultan Tughra is delightfully decorated in harem style - lots of red and gold, with mirrors on the ceiling. It is clean, comfortable and reasonably priced, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is also located within five minutes walk of Sultanhamet and ten of Ayasofia.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs. The ones downstairs don't have windows.
