“enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Nice hotel ,pleasant and helpful staff, food was as good, and inexpensive as most other restaurants . Excellent location, I would definitely like to use it again. I see some criticism about the noise from the Mosque in some reviews, why on earth would anyone holiday in a Muslim country if they did not expect to hear the call to prayer.

Room Tip: best rooms would have sea view and be farthest away from stairs

Everything was more than perfect. The location of the hotel was perfect, it 's close to all the nice sights (Blue Mosque, aja sofia, roman tanks, the see, the restaurants, the metro station, etc..)
We couldn't receive a room with a see view, but the standard room was very good too. The room was big and very hygiene. The room smelled always great. There's no pool, but a traditional hammam instead. It was fun !!!
The breakfast was delicious and the see view of the terrace made it even more romantic.
The crew was excelltent and very friendly, specially the recepioniste "Cevat". He had a lot of positive energy and gave us good tips and recommandations.
Thank you Sultanahmet palace for the great stay in Istanbul.
We felt so much like home, that we even forgot the keys of the room with us. :-)

A positive - location. Right between the Bosphorous and the Blue Mosque. Ask for room on Bosphorous side away from the mosque as the call to prayer is VERY LOUD! Close to lots of interesting things. Lovely view of Bosphorous from roof top.
Many negatives - food wasn't great. The internet was TERRIBLE - didn't work half the time and when it did - it as weak and sporadic. Had to go down at 2 p.m. to ask for my room to be cleaned. The 'cleaning station' - where cleaning staff gathered and sheets etc kept - was right across the hall from our room - and the staff that were in there on a regular basis during the day were also very loud - visiting and chatting while guests were trying to sleep. Bought soccer tickets from man at front desk - as in he arranged for us to buy them - paid through the nose, didn't have seats per se - he didn't tell us it wasn't the normal stadium but a stadium that was over one hour by cab away, etc. The television was a joke - few channels, tiny and crappy.

We had four nights at this hotel while in Istanbul recently. 5 min walk through the Arasta Bazaar brought us straight to the Blue Mosque and all the other main attractions in the old city.
Beautiful gardens in front of and down the side of the hotel. Lovely decor in the main foyer and bedrooms. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the Maramara Sea was a great start to the day.
Staff weren't particularly friendly - just did what they had to; but everything else made up for their lack of service.

Room Tip: try and get a room on the top floor on the side overlooking the sea.

We had a great stay at this Hotel. Travelling with a 10 mnth baby we had certain demands, which was all met professionally by the staff. We have visited IST many times before, but this was our first stay at this Hotel. We will definately stay here for all of our coming visits. Great experience in every way!

The location in almost unreal. Ask for a room with balcony

Located close to major attractions inc. Blue Mosque, Spice market, Grand Bazaar. Very comfortable, nice breakfast. Stayed with two other couples and it was a great base for our stay in Istanbul. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Bosporus side I suspect were the queiter ones away from the street.

Lovely hotel in Byzantine style, with a roof top restaurant overlooking Bosporus, where breakfast is served. The rooms are nothing spectacular, but very clean. The announced hammam in the room was quite a disappointment as we could not figure out how to use it properly, but as the bathroom was tiny, presence of hammam made it inconvenient to take regular shower.

Due to extreme proximity to the Blue Mosque (the view is absolutely stunning) be prepared to wake up with the first prayer at 4 AM, which was quite unexpected. Closed windows and turned on AC do not muffle the sound.
