3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I enjoyed my stay at hotel saba it is close to everything blue mosque haggia Sofia etc... I stayed in a room with balcony an amazing view of the marmara des and all the monuments. A special thanks to Suzan who made sure I had everything I needed.

Great location 30 seconds from Hippodrome . 2. minutes from Blue Mosque. Staff were friendly, chatty and helpful. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was typically Turkish but plentiful. Great breakfast view as was the view from my room.

A bit of a tired hotel, but the location more than makes up for it. Breakfast room has a sweeping view of the sea, the blue mosque, aya sofia - wonderful. We had an end room which was okay for our family. We were there on the first day of Ramadan, so we felt like we were truly in the heart of Istanbul. Call to prayer constantly, blue mosque just up the street, easy walking to everything.

We stayed in this comfortable hotel for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were very well looked after by the staff and were thrilled with the roof terrace dining room. Never have we breakfasted with such stunning views - in this case over the Blue Mosque, the Hagya Sofia and the Marmara Sea. We should add that that the breakfasts we enjoyed were both generous and delicious (eating halva for breakfast was a definite first!) A huge plus of this simple hotel is its proximity to all of the major 'must see' sights as well as to the tramway and the harbour. There are also lots of great eating places nearby, perfect after a tiring day of being culture vultures!

it was clean and staff was 100% helpfull. Location is also perfect. Breakfast --> 10 Room is every day cleaned --> 10 Breakfast at the top is with seaview and the blue mosque. Sometimes is wifi not very fast.

This is a reasonable hotel in a great location , close to all attractions including the blue mosque and Grand Bazar the hotel has decent rooms but beds are not comfortable and no facilities except the breakfast room at the terrace, which is the best place in the hotel with very nice views Hotel staff are very nice and helpful and probably the best about this hotel do not expect your normal five or four star hotel, this is a basic bed and breakfast we liked the location and it served its purpose

A perfect base from which to explore many of the city's prime attractions, many of which are quite literally on the doorstep. The hotel itself is comfortable and boasts a fantastic top terrace with breath-taking views over the tops of neighbouring buildings towards the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sofia mosque and the Sea of Marmaris. A generous breakfast is served up here each morning and if you are lucky, you can eat it out on the open part of the terrace .... but watch out for opportunistic seagulls just waiting for you to turn your back on yiur plate of food! The staff were helpful, attentive and very friendly. Altogether a great place to stay!

We stayed three nights and was very happy with room and staff. Room was clean and fresh, staff very helpful and nice. Location is the best for exploring old city - everything is in walking range. They have shuttle to airports which was in time and very fast. A little bit disappointed by breakfast tho...

I enjoyed the clean, comfortable room, but it was the balcony that was fabulous. I could see the Blue Mosque, Haggia Sofia, and the sea. A great place to unwind while enjoying the changing colors of sunrise or sunset. Views from the rooftop terrace/room (where breakfast was served) were even more spectacular! And the food was delicious, too. Hotel staff were helpful and informative, and the location was at once quiet and convenient. I will definitely return if I'm lucky enough to make it to Istanbul again.

I think it's the best location in the old city where your could access easily to all the most important monuments and places (Aja Sofia, Blue mosque, Grand Bazaar etc). Nice Medium sized hotel with good accommodation, excellent service and the best price quality ratio.
