Hagia Sophia Hotel Istanbul Old City

0.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The reception staff was very warm, friendly and helpful. The room was a basic economy room but was very spacious and well maintained. The beds were comfy as well. The breakfast was amazing and plentiful. The location was smack in the heart of old town Istanbul within a 5 minute walk of all major attractions! I will definitely stay here again on my next istanbul visit! Very satisfied and highly recommended :)

My experience is very nice with the hotel it is very close to the tourist area just a 2 min walk

DEFINITLY WOULD STAY HERE ONCE AGAIN NEXT TIME, REALLY HELPFULL HOTEL STAFF, SO CLOSE TO THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS OF THE CITY

The hotel is a pleasant modern surprise. The room is large with comfortable furniture and had a great view of the Blue Mosque. The ac was both effective and quiet, and the windows open for when you want fresh air. The staff were nice.

Stayed there is December with a great rate. Excellent location, nice room and full body shower, best wifi, and good service. Recommend.

This hotel is located in the Old City, only a short walk to the Cistern, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia Museum, and lots of restaurants. It took about 20 minutes to walk to the Grand Bazaar. It may not be a five star property, but it's very clean and comfortable. The hotel has a bar resembling an English Pub with comfy chairs. The front desk and bellman staff are so friendly and helpful!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hagia Sofia to my family and friends.

Clean Hotel, Nice Location Nice room, Hagia Sophia Hotel is right across the street from the museum-mosque, one garden away from the Blue Mosque. The tram linking the historic Sultanahmet Old City to Pera - Galata

Hagia Sophia Hotel Istanbul Old City is located 5 minutes walk from Sultanahmet Square/The Hagia Sophia/Hippodrome/Cistern/Blue Mosque and the Palace. You don't need to take a cab to visit these sites. The Hotel has very comfortable and sparkling clean rooms, 24 hour room service and an excellent front desk/concierge service that assists you in making tour reservations. The location is excellent.

We booked this hotel because of the 5 stars and the pictures on the website look so majestic, but when we got there, it looked like a regular three star hotel. The location of the hotel is EXCELLENT. So if you don't care about staying in a nice place, then it's ok for you. But here's the bad: Super dirty rooms (so dusty it was gross), the hotel staff, specially at front desk were super unhelpful and not nice (which is weird because people in Istanbul are very sweet), very little amenities, only 3 cable channels, and just overall a very basic simple old hotel. I wish I would have been warned :(

The hotel is located superbly near the Hagia Sofia, Sultanahmet Mosque and Basilica Cistern. It has many wonderful eateries around it and the tram station is less than 5 minutes away. The rooms are superbly decorated, air-condition cool enough for a warm day and has a nespresso machine to boot. Thumbs up and will definitely return!
