Pleasant atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed

Above all, staff is very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive or annoying. My room and bathroom were very clean and offered good comfort. The hotel's restaurant and breakfast room is situated within the court and invites to a rest from the busy outside environment. Food was very good. The Blue Mosque can be reached by a five minutes walk.

confortable but problematic

It was a pleasant stay but with one very big minus- when I arrived- they did not have a free room at the hotel which I reserved and they offered me a room smaller and at the very top without elevator. I said no and was very angry because I already payed for a specific type of room in advance. So after an hour of discussion, they arranged a room for me in neighbor hotel and I spent one night there. I think its a awful practice- the hotel management cannot do such things with clients. Also their standart (they also have lower class -budget- but dont take it) room is ok for a single person but too small for a couple. Otherwise the breakfast is pleasant- its in the garden outside, and the airconditionning worked well and soundless. The location is ok, I would say not bad for old town. On the quiet old little street close to Little Ayasofia. The hotel dont have turkish bath, and no fitness as well. But they have a good wifi, everyday a free bottle of mineral water, a basket of fruits and half a bottle of vine upon arriving and tea/coffee maker in the room. So could be a good choice of accomodation in Istanbul if they dont play games and give you immediately the nice room with great view.

Clean, Comfortable, Close to Sites -- Solid Value

We booked 3 rooms for 5 days. Everything was very clean, beds were comfortable, staff was helpful, and the breakfast buffet was great. All the Sultanahmet sites are within a 10-minute easy walk. We had a couple of small plumbing issues like slow drains and slight odors from one of the rooms' bathroom -- but nothing that I would consider a deal-breaker.
