Lovely mid range hotel, decent breakfast and accommodation is clean with staff that can not do enough for you. The positions is brilliant, just a short 5 min walk to the major attractions. The only thing I can say is that the bar fridge did not work and on the third day the air conditioner stopped working, only a minor setback. When mentioned they said they would fix straight away, don't know if they did.

Recently returned from Istanbul and stayed 1 night at the Ferman Sultan hotel prior to catching our flight back - beautiful room and great breakfast. The wi-fi was a bit iffy unless you were sitting in the lobby, however this is a nit pick from my perspective. The hotel was extremely clean, close to the tourist attractions in the old town area. The gentleman manning the counter was extremely helpful and anxious to make certain we enjoyed our stay. We spent 2 weeks in Istanbul and at the front end had an apartment for several days and after staying at the Ferman Sultan, wished we'd just spent our time there instead. Would recommend to others and will plan to stay there if a return trip comes up.

Room Tip: Appears that larger rooms (we had one) were at the front of the hotel. Room 201 exceeded our expect...

Very close to blue mosque. Serdar the manager is very helpful won't say " no" to most of the requests. Other receptionists Mert is helpful but can sometime have problem understanding English. Buffet breakfast was good and had enough variety. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

4th trip to Istanbul, first stay at the Ferman Sultan....very pleased. Location was great, close enough to the Blue Mosque/Aya Sofia but also really close to the grand bazaar. Front desk staff (esp Serdar) were absolutely fantastic! Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was wonderful, and the elevator up to the roof for a glass of wine was nice after a long day of walking! Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: the suite rooms are lovely - big rooms, huge bathrooms and jet tubs!

The hotel is very near the most important places of the Town.
Simple, good, clean. The breakfast is very good.
A 50% of the relax you can enjoy there is due to the kindness and professionalism of Mr. Mert.
