“excellent hotel, best location!!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

I loved the Hotel, very clean, excellent service, awesome breakfast and the best location. I traveled by myself to Istanbul and the hotel was everything what I was expecting to have. They provide me full information (location, transportation, and schedules) and a map for all the main places to see in Istanbul. Everything was so close that I was able to walk or take the train if I needed it. I was provided with transportation airport-hotel. I am a very picky eater, as a vegan I was able to start my day with a great breakfast because the big selection of delicious and healthy food at the restaurant. The room was always clean, with tv, internet, clean towels, A/C, a little refrigerator full of drinks, and a view to Hagia Sophia !!! The personal at the hotel are always very friendly and ready to provide information about Istanbul. I do not have any complaint. This is the hotel to stay in Istanbul, close to all the temples, museums, bazars, shops, nice restaurants and cafes. Even though the hotel is located in the middle of everything, the area around the hotel is very quitted. I can't wait to come back again !!!

This hotel was perfectly situated to see all of Istanbul's highlights. The Hagia Sophia is a ston'e throw away, while a walk to the Egyptian market will take onl 15-20 mins. The personnel were professional and friendly. The rooms were clean, and inviting. Turkish tea and Turkish delights were provided on arrival! Plus, the breakfast included in the price of your stay was delicious, and served on an outdoor terrace overlooking the city.

So please we chose this lovely hotel for our few days in Istanbul, it's so close to all the special places of interest. The staff were superb and couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was on the small size, but the comfort of the beds ensured a good nights sleep and the cleanliness of the room was excellent. The breakfast varied each day and was scrumptious. We would strongly advice visitors to the city to use this hotel as a base.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear of the hotel overlook the street, so the noise of the trams passing by tend to dis...

If you enjoy boutique hotels, the Ottoman Hotel Imperial is for you! Try for the Sultan Suite with a view directly out over the cobbled street to the Hagia Sofia. The staff is incredibly friendly and professional, rooms are lovely and service is great. Breakfast included every morning in the hotel is a mix of local flavors and basic western breakfast. Outstanding experience - looking forward to returning to this little jewel in Istanbul!

I loved everything, delicious breakfasts and friendly and helpful staff. I especially enjoyed the location - walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Cisterns and even Topkapi Palace (I didn't like Topkapi Palace- it was overpriced by the way).
I will be coming back in fall.

Room Tip: Choose the room with Hagia Sophia view,

We arrived in Istanbul on 14th of February 2014, and were given a room over looking the main road. We asked if we could have our room changed and really wanted a view of the Haghia Sofia! The hotel was really busy but the Manager Erhan said that he would do his best in the morning. And he really did we had the most amazing room with an amazing view of the Haghia Sofia! We were so happy! The hotel is located so well and all the main sights are only 5 or 10 mins walk! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
