Average Hotel- NOTHING SPECIAL

VERY small room- minute with a small bed for 2. Hotel staff tried to assist us but English was not good. Bathtub needed fresh grout- towels gray and dingy. I would not recommend this hotel.

Wonderful Istanbul

The Sultanhan Hotel is well located in Sultanahmet, just a block from the tram stop. The roof dining room offers a wonderful view of the city and the Bosporus. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and arranged pick-up for us at Ataturk Airport. I would certainly stay there again.

Great location

Location on small street with no through traffic (one way in and way out) close to all sites in Euro side and tram one block away to travel to other parts of city. Breakfast selection outstanding and staff more attentive than the best US 4 star hotels. Room with heat turned off was still on the warm side . Can't say this was an economic bargain but their was value for dollars paid.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

Through out the city are small design boutiques selling metal bowls/jewelry/clothing/turkish towels of superior quality than the Grand Bazaar which is really only good for the experience of sight seeing.

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.

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.

A delightful escape.

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

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.
