“Quaint friendly hotel!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

This was my first trip out of the country traveling alone. I was a little apprehensive but it turned out to be my favorite destination. The Romantic Hotel arranged my ride from the airport to the hotel. At the hotel everything was perfect - clean, good food and friendly atmosphere. The staff and especially the manager Atilla were friendly and were very helpful by pointing out destinations and explaining the culture. The hotel was within walking distance of most Sultanahmet sights and was surrounded by restaurants and quaint shops. I will definitely stay there on my next trip to Istanbul. As an extra bonus they were very pet friendly!

Placed on a highly touristic area, this small and appealing hotel, mesmerized my wife, and myself. Only 10 minutes walk from Blue Mosque, the hotel is surrounded with restaurants, cafeterias, and other boutique hotels. The receptionists (Serdar and Orhan) are very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, we missed the breakfasts due to the fact that we overslept. The reason were the long and delightful walks, together with the quiet and comfy rooms. I highly recommend this hotel for couples.

Literally steps away from heart of Sultanhamet, Romantic Hotel is an oasis of calm. From moment you walk in, you can see the visual references to an charming and romantic concept. The check in area is staffed with friendly and smiling faces. Go up to your room and you will find spaces designed with attention to every single detail, all combined with the comfort and total cleaning. Unique the top-floor terrace for breakfast with a view without equal on Sultanahmet. We discovered Romantic Hotel a few months ago. It our choice place to stay when we come to Istanbul. Over the years we have stayed on many other hotels in Istanbul. We keep returning to Romantic Hotel because it is really in the center of all, it is quaint, quiet and charming, and it does feel like home when we are in Istanbul. Our best choose in Istanbul...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel in hear of Istanbul last week. It is ideal for your city break and close to all major attractions that this great city has to offer. We went for the sea view suite and had amazing views of the Bosphorus.

PROS:
Great Location
Lovely quaint feel to the place
Ideal for couples

CONS:
Poor bed sheets that resembled a large towels
Customer Service was ok
They had a beautiful parrot in reception looking rather bored. I asked if she is allowed to fly and the receptionist replied that they had its wings clipped so it is unable to fly. This left me with a sour taste in my mouth and would rather see it in the wild!

Room Tip: See view is well worth it
