“Great Holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

The hotel is amazing, clean and modern. The staff made everything to make our stay as special as it could be. The location? It's impossible to be better - for those who intend to stay for a short period and are willing to see the highlights of Sultanahmet.

Highly recommended.

A really nice boutique hotel, well maintained, clean, and quite stylish.
The best part about our stay was the quality of service. Utterly impressed by all the staff who made our stay exceptional.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in sutanahmet.
Well done and keep it up.

I spent a weekend in this hotel during my first trip to Istanbul, and the first impression was absolutely positive starting from the reception. The stuff is very helpful, kind and supportive when you need any information to explore the city. The location is perfect, within a reach to the most attractions of the ancient city, to public transportation, and to many restaurants and cafes with various food choices. The modern style quiet hotel is a fabulous place to stay within the old surroundings of Istanbul. I would stay there again, no need to look for anything else regarding all the values.

Boutiqee St Sophia is a perfect value for money hotel at a brilliant location with very friendly staff, nice rooms and a good breakfast. All key places of interest are pretty close and accessible with a walk. If I have the possibility to return to Istanbul, I'll choose this hotel again for sure.

This small, modern hotel situated by the Hagia Sophia was a delight. Well designed interiors and ever helpful staff made for a pleasurable stay. Also, given its location, it was remarkably good value.

After 30 hours of travel this was a little slice of heaven. Friendly staff who spoilt guests from check-in's complimentary drink all the way through till checkout. Nothing was too much trouble. Wi-fi was perfect enabling me to conduct business over SKYPE. The location was sensational and they did an amazing and great value arrangement for a personal tour guide. The Bulgari bath products were extra opulence consistent with Istanbul. Hope I get to sleep here again one day.

Room Tip: Corner room on 3rd floor was sunny and bright - beautiful views.

A modern European hotel with a gracious and helpful staff is near-perfectly located next to Hagia Sophia, right on the metro line and across the street from the ornate exit of the Basilica Cistern, built in 532 A.D.. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: If you need a spacious room with a large patio/balcony, ask for their suite overlooking the interior...
