Sultanhan Hotel - Special Class

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Sultanhan hotel is a great place to stay in old town Istanbul . Hotel is clean , staff are friendly and professional. Location wise , it is walking distance from Ayasofia and Blue Mosque and Grand bazar . I would recommend this hotel to all who visit Istanbul.

The staff was very generous and helpful. The breakfast buffett was good, with a wide selection of offerings. The room was comfortable and just what one would expect at this price point. The only negative aspect, was a complete lack of any English language television channels in the room.

I stayed with my wife and our son at Sultanhan for 4 nights the best ever stay we could dream of. As everything in the hotel was more than excellent starting with the friendly and warm-hearted staff and ending with the comfortable room and the full-table breakfast. We would definitely stay there again when we visit lovely Istanbul next time.

Amazing and very courteous staff. They are very helpful and makes you feel that you're like a family. Location of this hotel is just steps away from the public transportation. Major attractions are just few minutes walk distances. Nice and clean rooms with adequate decorations.

very good and had good time. stayed for two nights and three days in Jan 2016 on our way from India to USA.

Hotel is very convenient location. Good restaurant with outstanding view. The room has certain Islamic charm, decent Internet. However, tv is small and out-dated and hard to find English speaking channels. Their turkish bath facility is very disappointing and small. A bit stingy about late check out.

We had a layover in Istanbul on our way back to the United States from Spain. We wanted to stay somewhere safe, clean, and walking distance to the sights. This hotel had it all! And the decor, oh, it was just so lovely. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a classical Istanbul experience! Also, it has a sauna and Turkish bath in the lower level!

This hotel is beautiful, clean and very well-situated close to Sultanhanmet. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Lovely hotel in all respects, staff was excellent, close to main tourist attractions

This hotel had a modern but also old world charm about it, and we liked it very much. From a quiet single lane street outside the hotel, a very short walk to the main road became a different world of access to tram transport, restaurants, shops and bakeries. 5 minutes from the blue mosque. It was the perfect spot for exploring.

Hotel is in a great location central to all the must do sights in Istanbul. Very good room and away from main road traffic.

Great place, great location, great staff, great history.

The hotel is located in the heart of the most-visited tourist attractions in Istanbul. It is clean, and the staff was quite helpful in arranging tours.

Rooms were large by European standards. Breakfast was diverse and plentiful with long hours for early risers and sleepyheads. Wait staff were attentive and helpful.....no hesitation in using the tip box! The view ffrrom the terrace made for a nice breakfast. Lobby is spacious and lovely. Airport transfer (for six travelers) was a bargain, and the van was a new Mercedes. We will almost certainly stay there on our next visit to Istanbul. On the down side, the wifi required an annoying log in each time it was accessed and, once connected, was not especially fast. The open wifi from the hotel next door was often available and was very fast. The spa access was uninviting and discouraged us from using it.

Nice upscale hotel in a fabulous old city location. Easy walk to all of the must see sites in the old city.

Best thing about this hotel is its location. Next door to the Grand Bazaar and 5 min from Blue Mosque, Haja Sophia, Topkapi Palace. No gym or other services to speak of. Overpriced but convenient if you want to be in the area. Took 4 taxis and non new it by name so make sure you have the address and phone number with you.

The Hotel Sultanhan is very conveniently located just off the main thoroughfare of Sultanahmet, Istanbul's "old city". The staff are very friendly and helpful and competent. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was good and hot and the room was comfortable with the French door kept open. The location near a tram stop and within easy walking distance of all the major sites was perfect. It is pricey compared to many hotels in this area, but you definitely get what you pay for. I would stay there again.

Located on a relatively quiet street in the heart of the old city. The hotel is an ideal base for exploring the historic mosques and bazaars. Clean, well appointed rooms, excellent breakfasts on the scenic rooftop terrace. The staff is generous with their time giving directions and making arrangements. We would suggest rooms on the higher floors many of which have views of the Bosperous and are quieter than lower floors.

generally excellent needed a better hairdryer better computer to borrow too
