The hotel is in a convenient location.Near there are museums, mosques and many different restaurants.The hotel is clean and comfortable, friendly staff.For breakfast was a great meal choice.With the Internet no problems.

We were warmly greeted by the front desk. They were nonetheless impeccable in service. They would greet you upon entry and exit. Our room had an amazing view of the Hagia Sophia. The interior of our room was very luxurious, beds were comfortable, shower was amazing & complimentary bath robes were a nice surprise. The breakfast is the only reason I gave 4 Stars, flies were visible on the food which was very off putting. A very big thank you to the front reception again.

The hotel has a enormous breakfast, they provide free water. And they are walk in distance from many historical locations. Also they have good restaurants nearby. However some rooms shell cigarette ( they changed us with no issue) And they have a entire floor that smell cat. And the room we stayed looks some dangerous to take showers as you have a bath tube, a glass doors and you have to make acrobacy to go in and out.

This is a nice hotel in the best location if you want to visit old Istanbul. Everything is on your doorstep. Breakfast has a good selection and you can sit outside and enjoy views of Hagia Sophia. Our bedroom had a view of Hagia Sophia too.

Walk to all of Istanbul's favorite sites from this lovely hotel. Accommodations were great and the breakfast selection was also lovely. Stay here if you want to be close to all the tourist attractions!

Beautiful beautiful stunning views of bosphoorus. Many Islamic relics in the harem room. Everything well preserved. Gives you an idea what life was like in that time. Different sections to this palace. Book a 5 day pass much cheaper. Includes all museums in sultanahmet. Otherwise you are going to pay separate for all. Which will work out more.

Beautiful and a good hotel to stay with a decent breakfast. Near to tourist attractions area. Sultanemet area. Haghia Sophia & Sultan Ahmet Blue Mosque. Garden between the two. Easy access to tram ride.

If you are looking to stay in the old city, then this is one of the best option you can find in Istanbul. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazar, Spice bazar, and many other which are the biggest tourist attraction of Istanbul are all WALKING DISTANCE. The tram is just 2 min walk , You can get a nice view of Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia from your room (If you choose room with the view.) We got this hotel on a bargain (around USD 60) per night. We stayed for 4 nights. when we arrived the way to the Hotel was barricaded (It is made Walking Street) We called the hotel, and in just a Minute the boy was there at our taxi to pick the luggage. the check in was smooth, they have a nice restaurant , open air out side the hotel which is connected to main building. The room was really big , spacious with all facility. The most unique feature was , the LED/LCD tv was inside a mirror/ glass wall. if you switch the tv off, then you cannot find the tv in the room. !! they had motorised curtain in the basic room also. The location is Superb 5 Star for location. Breakfast was good. Dont forget cherries and Baklava The only thing which disjointed me was, We are vegetarian, as the occupancy of the hotel at the time of our visit was very low, having short of vegetarian option in breakfast, we requested chef, it would be nice if can prepare a 1 or 2 more vegetarian dishes for us in breakfast. He could have just given some reason and said no, But he was like mad on the waiter from whom i got the request to him. We could almost hear his shouting in the breakfast restaurant. Apart from this , I would highley recommend this hotel , if you are looking to stay in the LAP of luxury in the middle of every thing in Istanbul. Also i Forget to mention, There are more than 100 places to eat in radius of less than 500 Mts around the hotel, where you can find all types of Cusines.

stayed here from 16th to the 19th of jan 2017. excellent location near the blue mosque and hagia sophia as well the tram t1 line which was convenient going to taksim. really nice and polite staff , were helpful with everything I needed.the rooms were modern and clean. Make sure you tell the taxi from the airport where exactly you are headed instead of just sultanahmet, costs about 60 liras to get there.

I have stayed for a week time in Sura Hagia Hotel (last week of November) The hotel location is perfect and near all facilities and major historical sites and Mesueums, at 150m from Sutanahmet tram station where you can have connection with other parts of Istanbul. The personnel in the hotel are so friendly, the breakfast is very rich and the restaurent staff are the best :) My stay in Sura Hagia Sofia was one of the best ones.
