“Great Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 15 December 2009

Very lovely hotel, we stayed for 4 nights and everyone in the party were very happy with all aspects of the hotel. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable, do recommend paying a bit extra and take the larger room. No complaint with the location as it's near all the sites we wanted to visit. Staff are very nice, breakfast bufe had a good choice of food.

Bunch of us came down to Istanbul for a long weekend gateaway, we chose this hotel to be honest with you for no reason at all but I'm so glad we did. This was our first visit to Istanbul and the hotel staff made our visit one to remember for a long time. I thank all the personal for a great experience, they help organized very lovely activities. Excellent location, near to all the important sites, next to Hagia Sofia, close to Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazar, oh yehh the Grand Bazar, be careful dont get ripped off, you must bargain strongly is also close by. Rooms are in good size , ours was fine but couple of other friends had small rooms. Good food choice for breakfast.

This hotel was an unbelievable find. It has an amazing location (walking distance from Hagi Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, etc...!).

The staff were outstanding... friendly and charming. They were really welcoming and it almost felt like a home away from home. They helped plan our days and were always available for a friendly chat and advice.

The room (triple room) was nice and had plenty of room for the three of us. They were comfortable and clean with a very nice en suite bathroom.

I would definitely recommend the hotel and if I were to go back to Istanbul I would not hesitate to stay there again!

Thank you Ottoman Imperial staff... you are all wonderful and we will always remember our trip because of you!

Hotel staff were amazing, they made us feel like we were at home. They went out of there way to make our stay an enjoyable one, thank you so much. It helps the hotel is located near to all the sites we wanted to visit. Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque are few minutes away, Hagia Sofia is right next door, matter affect our room was over looking Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazar is about 20 minutes walk away but you could take the tram , it only takes 5 minutes. Spice Bazar is within walking distance, Bosphorus is within walking distance, to be brief location is excellent. We had a great room , comfortable and clean. Do try the hotels Padisah restaurant one night, delicious food.

First of all I dont know why this hotel is not rated higher , it's a beautiful hotel with amazing location, in the old part of the city, accross Hagia Sofia and close by to Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar ( be strong here when you bargain ). Rooms are ok, clean , comfortable but it was on the small side, we could have upgraded to a superior room but no big deal as most of the time we were out sightseeing. Very helpful staff, polite and professional.

I stayed at this hotel few days when I first arrived to Istanbul also on my last say before I returned. I have no complaints, good staff, clean and pleasent room, good choice of food for breakfast, location is excellent in the heart of the old city almost next door to all the touristic sites. Would recommend it.
