“Well placed”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

Well within walking distance for most of the major sites and adjacent to a major eating area.
10 mins with a suitcase from the tram line and access to the airport [I'd suggest medium sized wheeled case would be many folks limit though].
Quiet site in cul de sac, friendly, competent staff.
Rooms small but perfectly adequate, comfortable beds, bathroom rather cramped but plumbing good with excellent shower.
Sea view from the roof terrace but the properties in between have seen better days.

Just 5 minutes from the Topkapi palace entrance, this B&B hotel was ideally placed. Plentiful help-yourself breakfast on the terrace, with views over the Bosphorus, to set you up for all the sight-seeing. Double room big enough but not huge, cleaned every day. Friendly and helpful staff and airport transfers arranged.

This sweet little hotel is a real gem. It's located very conveniently to the old city sights off a lively street (on a quiet, cobbled street that does not allow cars). The staff was very personable and helpful- Especially Cezer! The breakfast deck on the roof had great views and a big spread of yummy food. Our room was a little small on the ground floor and a bit noisy due to the active restaurant scene around the corner but it was great. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone.

The sebnem has many great features, including very nice (if a touch small) rooms, amazing rooftop views and generous breakfast spreads. As almost everyone has said, the staff at this place get a special mention for being some of the friendliest and most helpful we've come across. The only downside we had was unfortunately not the hotels fault, but came from the rear neighbors, the local hostel, whose bar blared music out until all hours of the morning. Great place to stay, but request a room on the front side!

This hotel is a great value for the money. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast spread is lovely. You are also given a free turkish coffee on your first night, and it's lovely to drink this from the roof-top dining area. The location can't be beat as you are within walking distance to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and all places within Sultanhamet. Our room was a bit on the small side, but this is the norm for Istanbul. Overall, highly recommended!
