Simply Wonderful

This was a great hotel. I spent 3 1/2 weeks in Turkey at 5 different hotels on a faculty study tour, so I saw the range from not so good to really great. I decided to end my trip with one week in Istanbul to sight see and meet with colleagues. I knew nothing about the Yasmak Sultan and relied heavily on Internet reviews like this one. I stayed 8 nights. It was simply wonderful. All the reviews are right. The location is fabulous -- one block from the tram. It was near the Topkapi Palace but not in the middle of the hordes of tourists just a few blocks away. The hotel was quiet, on a small street with tons of restaurants in small streets nearby. And that's just the location. The hotel itself was a great facility. I expected my room to be be small, but it wasn't. I had a nice view of the street, but when I closed the window the room was so quiet! The air was good, but really not needed because the weather was perfect. They even let you pick your pillows from 5 different choices! Front desk staff -- helpful. Morning breakfast buffet -- yummy. Hospitality - my favorite was the concierge. She greeted me my first morning there at breakfast (I was traveling alone, a rarity in Istanbul. She was so helpful! It's important to note that the Yasmak had visitors from all over the world, different faiths and languages. She just was so wonderful with everyone. My only suggestion for improvement -- I kept getting knocked off the Internet. A stronger signal would do the trick. A small price to pay to be in beautiful Istanbul. I hated to leave. This was a GREAT HOTEL.

Go to the nearby museums (Topkapi Palace, Archeological Museum) in the morning. They get really busy around 10:30. Do not miss the harem.

Perfect location, great view from the roof and the luxury of the Hamam!

The hotel is conveniently located in Sultanahmet, close to the major attractions, but in a quiet street. It is at walking distance from Topkapi, and very close to the tram stop Gulhane, perfect for those who want to explore the city by tram. Though the bathrooms can be small, the bedrooms are pretty comfortable. The panoramic rooftop restaurant serves delicious food, and for a reasonable fee one can enjoy Turkish bath, sauna, and aromatic (and energic!) massage. Finally, for those who prefer to eat out, the little streets around the hotel (like Ibni Kemal Caddesi and Udavendigar Caddesi) are full of restaurants. Free Wi-Fi internet and extremely friendly, professional staff contribute to make it a very enjoyable hotel. I would certainly recommend this hotel!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Most of the restaurants are popular with locals and offer delicious seafood, included the inexpensive balik ekmek (grilled fish and bread), and traditional dishes. Some cafes have cozy, soft cushions outside, to seat comfortably while enjoying an aromatic whiff from a narghile (water-pipe). Just stroll along and choose the place you like best!

yasmak is located in a nice corner

yasmak sultan hotel- a) receptionist is courteous. b) breakfast buffet- lacks of selection. 1) i find this property has low level of western health code...salami & cheese platter is not placed under ice, it's just sitting there in room temperature for several hours. i did not enjoy the morning buffet. 2) restaurant host lacks health code as well. 3) this hotel didn't even have straws. c) hotel is kept neat d) rooms- 1) only had a thin blanket and did not have a sheet between the blanket and bed sheet. who knows if hotel even change the sheets between customers. bed lacks hygiene code as well. 2) room only had a little tv 3) room did not have a clock 4) bathroom - a) face cloth (towel) was placed on sink counter also lacks hygiene code b) bath towel are too thin. i've paid too much for this property.

Great Location at a Good Price

The Yasmak Sultan was a great hotel for the value. Located only a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and most other locations of interest, it was the perfect place for my visit. It is also located only a block from the tram station, which was very easy to use as a means of getting around the city. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially when arranging car service to and from the airport. The service, however, was not included in the price because the reservation was not made directly with the hotel. My room was very small, but it was clean, comfortable, and always well maintained. Everyone on the staff was friendly, especially those working at the rooftop restaurant. The continental breakfast was included in the price of the room and was surprisingly good. It was a great way to start the day! The surrounding neighborhood was full of restaurants, internet cafes, nightlife, and shopping. It really was the perfect location and contributed to a near-perfect visit.

Istanbul's efficient tram system was literally a minute from the hotel's front door. Affordable and perfect for getting to all points of interest.
