Osmanhan Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Osmanhan Hotel is delightful. The rooms are lovely - lots of natural light, pretty decor and comfortable beds. The rooftop breakfast is delicious, and the location in Sultanahmet means a short stroll past cafés and shops to the tourist "must-sees" such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The real treasure of Osmanhan, however, is the people. All of the staff work hard to make sure that their guests are welcomed and looked after as if they are part of their own family - Engin, in particular, was my PA and saviour when I lost the plot and missed my flight :) Thanks again Engin! It feels safe and special to stay there. I would love to go back to Istanbul, and I will definitely stay at Osmanhan for longer next time.

This hotel was in a perfect location to Sultanahmet Square and surrounding sights. I loved being able to walk to the square to watch the beautiful sunset and hear the call to prayer between the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. The hotel had an great rooftop breakfast with views of the sea. The rooms were very comfortable and the owner and staff were always so helpful. I ended up extended my trip and was easily accommodated. I enjoyed talking with the son that runs the hotel who shared with me about his family and tea business. He also gave a great recommendation for seafood one evening. If you want to stay in Sultanahmet area this is the place.

The title says the most. The place is definitely recommended! However it is not as good as it used to be. I stayed here five years ago, and it was a notch better. This time more ...relaxed in the approach to the customers. Breakfast and the morning terrace are great with lots to get you started - and a great view as a most welcome addition. Great way to start your Istanbul day. Rooms are comfortable and you can't really blame anything there. I know it was special conditions, but we did have a transfer issue. Osmanhan has delegated the transfer to some other company and that is bad. Again, it was special conditions with heavy rains in the city the day we arrived, but the transfer never materialised and we ended up in a reckless (pre-paid) taxi and - without Turkish Lira in cash - suddenly set off in front of a tram stop. Not once did the hotel acknowledge this or try to make up for it - eg as in offering a transfer back to the airport. That was actually disppointing. So no 5* rating this time - and we will probably find another hotel next time.

This hotel is wonderful and very well situated in the old city. The hotel is very cleaned, beautiful and cozy. I was feeling like home. This hotel is a family business and their services are so personalized. They make you feel so special because they are respectful, kind and helpful. I had to go to Istambul airport and my shutter never showed up because the flooding that a rain caused during the night. Musfat one of the owners of the hotel took me to the airport in spite of the bad conditions of the flooding in the city. He was my hero. Nobody wanted to pick me up because of the flooding. Musfat took me to the airport and i could not even pay him because with the rush and the stressed of not loosing my flight, i never paid him. Musfat thank you so much for all your efforts to get to the airport on time, THANK YOU OSMANHAN HOTEL. I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL OF YOU. ALSO, MY APPRECIATION TO OMER, HE WAS SO KIND,RESPECTFUL AND HELPFUL. THANK YOU GUYS :)

The service was extremely friendly, they gave us loads of advice and we were told we're part of the family. The location was fantastic - close to all the main attractions. It was really nice how they let us in to our room when we checked in at 7am. Our 11 year old daughter slept on a foldout chair but that was fine as she said 'it was really comfortable'. We had a lovely simple Turkish breakfast up on the roof and just wish we could have stayed longer than one night. Next time we're in Istanbul we'll be staying here!

I can't enough great things about this hotel. It's wonderfully situated right by all the main attractions, a beautiful view of the sea from the rooftop terrace, free breakfast, clean, and a super friendly staff that is fluent in English and is incredibly helpful. It's very reasonably priced. Next time we are in Istanbul, we will stay here.

With so many reviews, all positive, you don't need me to tell you this place is extraordinary. It is in the perfect location, offers superlative rooms and the staff...oh a life time spent traveling these people are first rate hosts. Head and shoulders above a world filled with mediocre hotel staff, Osmanhan offers a quiet civilized refuge with welcoming and kind staff proud of their city and their hotel. No problem is the motto and they are words to live by. Cold air conditioning, hot water from a powerful shower. Want to bring back food to the room? No...problem. Need help choosing a place to eat? No ...problem (trust them on this one!) and so forth. We watched them handle an embarrassingly obtuse and loud woman from Australia and they won my admiration for their patience with their handling of a ridiculous complaint (the tour group was too big - not a hotel problem but ... no problem!). Visit Istanbul it is lovely. But stay here for serenity and comfort. First rate hotel.

We wanted to visit İstanbul very much but because of the terror incidents we kept postponing it but terrorism isn't just in İstanbul it's now all over the world, İstanbul is very safe in my opinion, the turks are very warm blooded. There was 2-3 hotels we wanted to stay in but we chose osmanhan, they was a very nice , warm atmosphere the lady who worked with the breakfast was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was brilliant and the hotel had an amazing sea view. The hotel has a great location is very near to the ayasofya and the famous bazars. The only problem was the the stairs, other than that everything was amazing the cleanness, breakfast and staff. The staff was helpful with every question they gave us great information, you could ask them questions 24/7. Thank you osmanhan! Thank you İstanbul!

Our stay was amazing we stayed 5 nights, the staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, the view was amazing you could see the Bosphorus, the breakfast was very yummy and delicious. The location of the hotel was amazing it is in the heart of İstanbul, Istanbul is very safe and heart warming, İstanbul has always stolen my heart and always will. I and my family would like to thank all the staff for our great stay! We would definitely come again!!

I give Osmanhan Hotel 5 out of 5 willingly. I was very very satisfied with this lovely and comfortable hotel. The staff is all professional and kind. The person at the reception has mach knowledge about Istanbul and gave me exact information for sight-seeing. The room and breakfast are excellent. And , as the many other guests have written, the roof-top terrace is amazing. I loved it so much. When I had breakfast and watched the super view from there, I forgot to go out for sight-seeing! I made wonderful memory at Osmanhan Hotel and in Istanbul. I'll stay at Osmanhan Hotel again.
