A Fine Hotel

Located on a relatively quiet street in the heart of the old city. The hotel is an ideal base for exploring the historic mosques and bazaars. Clean, well appointed rooms, excellent breakfasts on the scenic rooftop terrace. The staff is generous with their time giving directions and making arrangements. We would suggest rooms on the higher floors many of which have views of the Bosperous and are quieter than lower floors.

Great location, breakfast and quiet.

Rooms were large by European standards. Breakfast was diverse and plentiful with long hours for early risers and sleepyheads. Wait staff were attentive and helpful.....no hesitation in using the tip box! The view ffrrom the terrace made for a nice breakfast. Lobby is spacious and lovely. Airport transfer (for six travelers) was a bargain, and the van was a new Mercedes. We will almost certainly stay there on our next visit to Istanbul. On the down side, the wifi required an annoying log in each time it was accessed and, once connected, was not especially fast. The open wifi from the hotel next door was often available and was very fast. The spa access was uninviting and discouraged us from using it.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eat at Fuego, Khorasani and Kybele hotel reastaurant (thisis funky, no view, but neat). Karadeniz Kodenz (not sure of the spelling, but across from the Karadeniz Dolphin) is not a great dining experience, but OK. The very nearby Pierre Loti Hotel is a great rooftop drink experience, but the food there is not great.

Dinizen, an ex-pat American owned cafe offers great food at reasonable prices. They have installed a water filtration system that enables you to eat cold foods/vegetables cold.

A delightful escape.

We were overall pleasantly satisfied with the hotel and our surroundings but were disappointed that the 'Hammam' was under renovation.

Perfect Location

The hotel is located in a quiet spot in the centre of the old city of Istanbul about midway between the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) and Grand Bazaar. Best method of arrival is by Metro then tram (T1) from the airport disembarking at Cemberlitas. Recommended.

Great location in old city

Best thing about this hotel is its location. Next door to the Grand Bazaar and 5 min from Blue Mosque, Haja Sophia, Topkapi Palace. No gym or other services to speak of. Overpriced but convenient if you want to be in the area. Took 4 taxis and non new it by name so make sure you have the address and phone number with you.

Very nice, convenient spot in the center of Old City Istanbul

The Hotel Sultanhan is very conveniently located just off the main thoroughfare of Sultanahmet, Istanbul's "old city". The staff are very friendly and helpful and competent. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was good and hot and the room was comfortable with the French door kept open. The location near a tram stop and within easy walking distance of all the major sites was perfect. It is pricey compared to many hotels in this area, but you definitely get what you pay for. I would stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy an "IstanbulKart" the plastic smart card for public transportation at the airport or transport terminal. We put 50 lira on it and used it the whole time for buses, trams, metro and ferry boats which saved us a ton of money on taxis and time not buying separate transit tokens every trip.
