Reviewed 30 April 2014

The historia hotel is a very wonderful hotel in the middle of Sultanahmet! Sultanahmet is very nice! You have many tourist attractions in this quarter for example the blue mosque or the hagia sophia. For me was Sultanahmet like the heart of Istanbul. The location from the historia hotel is absolutely a dream. You are very fast in every quarter of the city and it's not loud, it's very quietly! The historia team is very friendly! I have never been to Istanbul before and the receptionist took time for explain us the different ways to the tourist attractations, restaurant etc. We wanted to learn a little bit turkish and the waiter cetin was very friendly and helped us to learn a little bit turkish.

Now, I recommend you to choose the historia hotel for you stay in Istanbul! You don't regret it! Believe me! :-)

To the historia team:

Her şey için teşekkür ederim
(Thank you for everything)

The hotel was recommended to us by previous guests and did not disappoint. The location is excellent with many of the main attractions within walking distance. Our room, while not spacious was clean and comfortable with a balcony with views over both Bosphorus and the main street. The manager and all staff were extremely friendly and helpful and contributed a greast deal to making our stay a pleasant one. We had problems with luggage not arriving at the airport and they sorted this out quickly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble from recommending restaurants to booking tickets. Breakfast offered a wide choice of excellent food and the outside eating area was pleasant. We would happily return and recommend the hotel to others.

Room Tip: A room on the top floor with views over the Bosphorus and a balcony.

I stayed at this hotel Sunday, March 9 - Wednesday, March 12 in a quad room. Our room had two twin beds and one queen bed. It was a lot of furniture in one room (there was a cute little seating area with two chairs and a table) but it worked for us. The bathroom was a little cramped but I was expecting that. The staff was super friendly and helpful when we needed recommendations or directions. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was decent - there were many options for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. The best part about the hotel is the location. It is such a short walk to everything you want to see - the Arasta Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the streetcar. We were there during a very rainy season and the hotel provided umbrellas if needed. The call to prayer was barely heard from our hotel unless we left the windows open at night and the train outside our window was really quiet. For the price, the location and the comfort of the rooms, I really couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Would definitely recommend this to friends or future travelers to the area.

Room Tip: If you have four guests, the quad room is an excellent choice. We had a room facing the back of the...

We spent a great long weekend in Istanbul without any regrets regarding our choice to stay at Historia Hotel. We found everything as advertised – even the airport pick-up service was easy despite our delayed arrival. The hotel is quite, clean, with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast is included and offers a variety of choices, including fresh omelets and fruits. The location is also excellent, only a few minutes away from the famous Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia as well as a tram stop that brings you down to the Bosporus. We had a great time and would definitely come back!

Just back a few days ago from a short break in Istanbul with 5 friends. Requested 3 twin-bedded rooms close to each other and that's exactly what we got. Loved this small hotel, staff very friendly helping with places to eat (and arranging for pickup and return). Very clean ,all the facilities you need including coffee making often not provided in Turkish hotels in my experience. Very close to all places of interest in Sultanahmet. Would happily stay again.

Excellent hotel with friendly and helpful staff in a great position in Istanbul. Rooms are a little small but think this is typical for Istanbul. We upgraded to sea view with balcony and it was worth the extra 20 euros per night. For shopping take the ferry to Kadikoy (55 pence each way) for bags and shoes (and kebabs) Less hassle, more choice and cheaper than the grand bazar.

Room Tip: We upgraded for 20 euros per night for balcony with sea view and it was worth the extra spend. We pa...

We recently stayed at this hotel during our recent visit to Istanbul. The hotel is located near heart of key location and it is walking distance to all the key attractions. The hotel staff was always there to help. They help us with all the transportation during our stay in Istanbul. The hotel is very comfortable. However rooms are very small and you can hear your people staying next room. We enjoyed morning breakfast. I would recommend this hotel for people who wants to stay near key attraction. This hotel helped us store our luggage while we travel other cities in Turkey.
