The place has a strategic location that is in the centre of the most historical places. It's accompanied by the beautiful gardens, hospitable staff with nice food. How can I forget Ela's welcoming smile and jolly face, so beautiful.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel is the place to stay when visiting Istanbul on a vacation especially if you are a couple or Family. The hotel has a rich history and is literally located next to the Hagia Sofia Mosque and the Topkapi Palace. The rooms and suites are amazing along with the scenic F&B Outlets. I stayed at the hotel with my girlfriend and we were treated with the warm Turkish hospitality. Mariya, Cihad and Mehmet from reception were fantastic and assisted us in every aspect. The Chief Concierge is very friendly and helpful, who assisted to arrange a tour of Istanbul. Our tour guide Rukiye was very detailed and rich with information about history and the locations. The breakfast is one of our favourite times of the day where we get served by a friendly and hospitable team and get a fantastic view. Suzan, Mesut, Hanife and Nursu from the breakfast team are superstars. Also it is must to dine at the Sarniç fine dining restaurant where Ayhan and team give an exceptional service which adds value to the experience.

We were warmly welcomed by the hotel’s guest ambassador Ela, she is a true epitome of kindness, hospitality, warmth, and professional. She made our day colorful with her beautiful smiles, so lovely. We would wish to have her in Australia to work in our hospitality industry as she holds guests with high regard and sincerity. The way she handles the guests come from the heart. She is so sweet. You discovered a treasure!

We were booked into the Hagia Sofia by our travel agent. How lucky we were. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are drop dead gorgeous. And the location makes walking to everything possible. Don't forget to reserve a time in the cistern pool. Lovely.

My husband and I stayed there June 8-11 as it was our first visit to Istanbul. Pros- location- walkable to all the major sites- Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi palace less than 5 minutes walk, so it was great for sightseeing! When it go too crowded or hot, we retreated to our room and went back later. We ended up getting an upgrade to room because the bathroom sink was leaking in our first room. Jacuzzi- 10 Euros per person- good price concierge Misfir was very helpful Cons- Some rooms are 2-3 flights walk up, no elevators so difficult if you have bags or disability.

This property is unique in Istanbul, a group of 19th century homes next door to Hagia Sofia, and close to many of the European side's greatest sights. We woke up looking up and out at Hagia Sophia, (probably 500 feet away). The side street the hotel is located on is private and quiet at night. The Hippodrome, Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar are approximately 5-10 minutes away. Even more importantly even though there is foot traffic on the street in front, one feels isolated from the pulsing energy of Istanbul. Access to the Beyoglu, the Asian Side, the Bosporus and the elegant neighborhoods to teh north of the Old City is also easy. The rooms were well laid out, decorated in a style in-keeping with their history and yet modern and up to date. The baths are luxurious.

Perfect location, very walkable to most sights in Sultanahmet. Hammam treatment was out of this world. Prices were in Euros but paid in Lira on checkout which worked out cheaper. Be sure to book your (private)Cistern pool time advance Quiet location (we had a 2nd floor mansion) but you will hear the call to prayer, as it’s quite loud, given the proximity to the Hagia Sophia mosque (and any other hotel in Istanbul I suspect too) . Spread out across multiple locations but all easily walkable; buggies available if you prefer. Breakfast (choice of items and service) needs some work. Even though it was quiet, the waiters weren’t very attentive, cooked items took ages, had to ask for cutlery, and there was rarely any labels on the (limited) hot food items. Disappointing, but compensated by the view, which was lovely. Would give this hotel, a 5/5 and consider staying again if they improved the breakfast offering.

I stayed at this hotel for six nights (April-May) and it was pure pleasure. Nestled at the heart of old Istanbul, this hotel offers not only an unparalleled access to the nicest neighborhoods of the city but also a service of the highest standards. The rooms are huge and very cozy, the spa was outstanding with the best Turkish Hamam I've ever had. The breakfast was very delicious. I would like to commend Ozan and Youssef for their help and constant smile.

We visited 5 cities during our trip in Turkey and this was the best hotel by far. It was not only incredibly beautiful but it had the most amazing service. All the staff was nice, supportive and doing their best to guarantee we had the best time. Breakfast had a lot of different options and it was really good. The location cannot be beaten. It is in the center of Sultanahmet and near to every main attraction such as Topkapi Palace, basilica cistern, blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. We did everything by walking. Also, the tram is really close. The decoration of the hotel is unique. It has such amazing and bright colors and prints to make you feel in a palace. Its amazing. Bedrooms are big and comfortable and the bathroom is the most beautiful bathroom I’ve ever seen. Their spa and pool section is also great. The pool has thermal water and its reserved only for you so you have like a private experience on this beautiful cistern like pool. It was a highlight in our stay. Be aware that you will be able to hear the call for prayer at prayer times including 4am. We didn’t know that so we were really surprised and a little disturbed the first night but the other 2 nights it happened really fast and actually didn’t bother us. Its part of the experience. Overall, our stay was great. We didn’t want to leave. I highly recommend!
