Boutique Saint Sophia Hotel

Reviewed 15 May 2014

The location could not be better, although most cabs have a hard time getting to it because of the restricted traffic in this central area - literally steps away from the Aya Sofya and the Blue Mosque. Downside is that you get a bit of the clacking of the trams. Service was excellent, every staff member I encountered was friendly and helpful. Only think that could be better was breakfast, in the sense that it's not included in the room rate. I'd still stay there again, though!

The hotel is so close to the centre, that taxis or drivers have difficulties to access. However the service is extremely personal and friendly and the hotel rooms are chic and modern. Breakfast is uniquely served - you will enjoy it. A champagne comes at the end.

We stayed in boutique st Sophia for 3 nights , the room was well decorated with modern style, the location was central in sultanahmet, few minutes walk to all the sight seeing such as Hagia Sophia , Blue mosque, Tokapi palace and underground cistern . But most of all I like the service of every staff I came a crossed. My luggage was delayed by the airlines from the connecting flight and the hotel coordinated very well with the airlines staff and keep following up and make sure I get my luggage on time. I really appreciated their service . The feeling of the staff that they gave me was A HOME away FROM HOME. I would recommend Boutique st Sophia to every travelers who wish to stay at a place that is centrally located , beautiful modern hotel and awesome service .

We stayed four nights at this boutique and loved the location. right next door to Aya Sophia and just a couple of minutes walk from the Blue Mosque. We found the staff to be most welcoming and helpful.

The rooms themselves were modern and clean with everything needed for a lovely stay. Bathrooms were well presented.

Whilst the hotel is lovely, its really the location that counts here and it couldn't be better, right in the heart of the old town. Particularly enjoyed a tour of the old Cistern over the road.

Room Tip: Some rooms have views of the Blue Mosque, ask for a higher floor for better views.

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.

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.
