Very nice hotel in a convenient location

Would recommend Tue, Sep 9, 2014
I took my daughter to Istanbul for a long weekend to celebrate her 21st birthday - it was an amazing place with lots of interesting sights to see. As two women travelling alone we quite safe and found the locals very helpful. We were disappointed that the hotel wasn't able to offer us a twin room and moved us across to their sister hotel (Hagia Sophia). We much preferred Sura Design Hotel & Suites to Hagia Sophia (which was not as friendly, much noisier and not as nicely decorated). Make sure you make any requests clear at the time of booking.

Excellent hotel - one of my favorites

Would recommend Tue, Dec 4, 2012
I checked in late (after midnight...had a delayed flight). The night manager was extremely friendly and accommodating. He helped with setting up internet, providing a local map and giving suggestions on where to start my sightseeing the next day I can't say enough about the location. From my balcony (definitely worth upgrading to the garden balcony room!) there was a view of the Blue Mosque. I walked everywhere - The Blue Mosque, Haiga Sofia, Basilica Cistern, Suleiman Mosque, Topkai Palace, Spice Market, Grand Bazaar, etc. The Blue Mosque, Haiga Sofia, Basiclica and Topkai are less than a 5 minute walk. Additionally, the road the hotel is on has several restaurants with outside seating. I don't remember the names of them but I ate at a different one each night! The hotel itself has a unique decor...the room decor made me think of being in the world of the sultans. Not necessarily what I would want in my house but fine for a hotel. Beautiful marble bathroom. And I definitely recommend upgrading to a room with a balcony!


You can take a ferry across the Bosphorus to the Asian side of Istanbul. There are a ton of intertwining streets with great restaurants throughout once you get a block or two away from the port.

Not a 5 star or even 4 BUT ... great location

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 31, 2012
One thing the Sura is decidedly not, is a 4/5 star hotel. Its a decent 3 star hotel with a great location but if you go expecting the 4 Seasons or even a Westin, you'll be disappointed. The room was small and oddly shaped. It was disconcerting to have someone banging on the door at 2 pm (siesta time) and then coming in for a "mini bar control". The shower drained slower than molasses and the elevator call buttons needed that special touch - sometimes they cooperated and sometimes they didn't. I'm not sure how much a garden view room would add to the experience. On the plus side, the location couldn't be better without actually living in the Hagia Sophia. Its right next to a tram stop, 4 minutes to the major historical attractions and the front desk was helpful even though they struggled with English. In short, I'd recommend staying here if you're on a budget and can get a room cheap but don't be mislead by the star rating.


Go down towards the 4 seasons in Sultanahmet and walk down to the water from there. Its a nice long walk and there are some really good fish restaurants along that section of the waterfront
