Very pleasant stay at your hotel this past week. The exquisitely simple and beautiful room, the impeccable service and above all the cheerfulness of the staff have made the time we spend there truly memorable.We are happy to call Turkoman our Istanbul home.

Happened onto this place through a recommendation in the Lonely Planet, Small, friendly hotel centrally located near the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, and Aya Sophya (all the must-see places, that is) in Sultanahmet. The hidden treasure (not so hidden if you get to know him) is the person manning the front desk, Tumay, a young fellow who radiates friendship and goodwill and is an excellent English speaker to boot (London accent, spent most of his life there). He will do all in his power to make your stay one of the most enjoyable ones you've had anywhere. Thanks so much, Tumay!!

İt felt like ı was at home with a very welcoming staff , the breakfast was a star it gave me a very good start to a long day so make sure you dont miss out the breakfast .They have a bar at the terrace it was one of the best views ı have seen,with a blue mosque and the marmara sea.The room was comfortable and they had free wfi in the room and air con so it was a relaxing room with a blue mosque view and the marmara sea. I also had a free pick up service from the airport becuase ı stayed for 4 nights. ı would highly reccomed this hotel.

I would not recommend this hotel, for various reasons. The room was shabby, the lobby was dull and uninteresting, and the location was very mediocre, as it faces an empty lot. The breakfast was really crummy -- stale food, ill cooked, flavorless. Yes, the view from the terrace is amazing - but that does not overcome the lousy decor and service. Also, you are so close to the big mosque that the muzzein call is deafeningly loud. Overpriced for what they offer.

This small hotel is located in the old city and perfectly located for walking to all the great sites in the old town, including the Blue Mosque (see picture), Agia Sophia the Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. The rooms are pleasantly old-fashioned and quirky, and while not large are comfortable and clean. The roof has a cafe with great views across the Bosphorous. The staff were very accomodating, hospitable and organised a return to the airport very early (04:00 a.m.) with no trouble. There are plenty of eating places around, also with roof terraces. A good hole, as my father would say.

sI've just returned from Istanbul where a friend and I stayed at Hotel Turkoman in Sultanahmet. I will definitely return to stay here. This was my 4th visit to Istanbul and although I've never had a bad stay, the staff at this hotel stood out! I have yet to meet friendlier and more accommodating staff. Although everything about my stay here was good, I would go back for the staff alone.
We were served a more-than-lovely breakfast buffet with a range of goodies including halva and fresh cherries to add to your yoghurt, fritters, boiled eggs, sour cherry juice (yum) - too much to mention. A sea gull joined us on the balcony - with a GREAT view of the Blue Mosque - and ate with us. (S)He called his babies over from the adjacent roof and they came squawking to join the party though they kept their distance.
Our luggage (very heavy, I might add) was carried around; they obligingly allowed us to shower although we had already booked out... I could go on and on.
