My husband and I spent three nights at this great hotel before taking a bus tour around Turkey. We booked this hotel because of the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. If you are looking for big chain hotel atmosphere and large rooms, don't come here. If you are looking for quaint (but clean and comfortable) and staff that make you feel completely at home, then this hotel would be perfect for you. On our tour we stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels around the country and we both agreed that none of them could compare to Hotel Sapphire.
The location is fantastic! It is an easy walk to the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, etc. There are lots of restaurants close by. Our favourite was the Faro Restaurant, just around the corner. For a change from Turkish food, try their pizza. It was the best we have ever had. My husband and I found ourselves looking forward to it after eating gas station lunches and buffet dinners for two weeks. I would also recommend the Cappadocia stuffed veal. Delicious!!
This hotel really helped make our stay in Istanbul a memorable experience. We would certainly recommend it and will stay here again.
