“Hotel Sultanahmet Palace a special hideaway”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

A very special place in the old part of Istanbul - Sultanahmet Square.
Small hotel, former city house of a noble family, it has a special atmosphere. You can't find a better location as a start to visit the sites of old town. After a hard day sight seeing you can relax in the garden. You just have to do bookings early enough, as it's mostly fully booked, when you want to make a reservation just short term in advance.

Stayed November 2013, travelled on business

Whenever i visit Istanbul the Sultanahmet Palace Hotel is where I stay. I have been there now three times and each time it was a pleasure. I am sure it has happened to some of you that you come back to a place you liked and it is somewhat a disappointment. Not the Sultanahmet Palace Hotel. Clean rooms, great breakfast, centrally located and reasonably priced. I enjoy it every time and can highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean (Sea of Marmara) are quieter.

I visit Istanbul every year on business and Sultanahmet Palace is always my hotel of choice. The hotel ... her professional staff ... the wonderful view ... The "hamam" bathrooms ... the delicious restaurant ... the lovely garden, the perfect location ... What is not to love?

We're a family of 5 from Toronto Canada, who visited Turkey in May 2014 and loved this place. The restaurant is located right in front of the Sultanahmet Mosque and there is a small Bazar just a few walking minutes away. You can also easily get to Hagia Sophia and Cisterna Basilica. The rooftop patio was amazing with views of the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque as well as the waterfront. The best part was the service and wonderful staff. We were travelling with three young children and they were so nice to them. They entertained them, let them go back to the kitchen and just had a lot of fun. They had a pizza that the kids said was the best they'd ever tasted as well. Great wine too. We had 2 dinners in the restaurant and an afternoon drink on the rooftop. A great start to our whirlwind 16 day travels around Turkey

Room Tip: We didn't stay in the hotel, but loved the restaurant!

We arrived in Istanbul at the ferry docks early in the morning and walked from there through the ancient streets until we arrived at the hotel. We knew it was too early to check in (around 10 am), but hoped to be able to leave our small bags there, while we continued our walkabout. The polite & professional gentleman behind the desk let us know that, yes, that would be fine - however, your room is ready and by the way, we've upgraded you to the Blue Mosque room. Wow, quite the reception! We were led to the room and again, wow! Beautifully appointed with large tapestried headboard, gracefully curved daybed, marble lined Turkish style bathroom. When the window shades were pulled back - there, perfectly framed, was the incredible Blue Mosque. Yes, as others have observed, the call to prayer was definitely part of the ambience of the room, but for me, it lent to the exoticness of the whole experience and I wouldn't have missed it for anything (and, truth be told, I didn't hear it with the windows closed early in the morning, but that might just be me). The grounds of the hotel were beautifully maintained with gardens and fountains. The lobby is large, nicely outfitted and has an incredible staircase - the whole setting makes you feel like you just stepped into a great old movie. The buffet style breakfast was served in a semi-detached building towards the rear of the hotel with a nice view over the water. Walking distance to just about everything in the Old Town. We certainly hope to get the chance to return.

Room Tip: Blue Mosque room if you don't mind a bit of a unique experience

The hotel is situated right beside the blue mosque and location wise is unbeatable, all the main attractions in sultanahmet are within walking distance. The hotel itself is nice, clean and quite and the view from our balcony was simply stunning. The rooms were of a good size and although the bathroom could have been slightly bigger it was not a major issue. Service was excellent and things like free wifi/free breakfast on the terrace etc all elevate this hotel, will definitely be staying here again!

Nice small Hotel with flair and charme close to the places to visit (sightseeing) and easy to leave for restaurants/ shopping and nightlife.
Perfect view (in case of balcony) in two directions (180°)!
Good breakfast which you need to take outside (terrace!)

Easy to go there, just take the tram #T1 and leave @ Station Sultanahmet. Enjoy the short walk through all the tourist places.

Room Tip: You start with a nice view when you have breakfast or leave the hotel... And you go to bed the same...
