Great location. Not 5 star.

Expected to book a 5 star hotel. Turns out this was more of mid range 4 star at best. Shower could not produce hot water. Rooms are dated and not cleaned to a high level. Location is fantastic. Staff were helpful and tried their best to make my stay enjoyable. Would probably stay here again.

Excellent Hotel

The hotel is well run, the staff polite and efficient, and the rooms though a bit small are well designed and appointed, and very clean. The breakfasts are good value with a wide range of food. But the biggest plus is the 2-minute walk to Aya Sophia and the major sights.

Die Lage ist spitze. Vom Personal sind wir enttäuscht. Unfreundlich. keine Begrüssung & desinteressiert. Unser Zimmer war nicht bereit. Wir konnten zwei Tage nicht duschen. Wassermischer hat nicht funktioniert. Buffet ist mager.

Dear Our Guest, First of all thanks for stayed in Hagia Sophia Hotel İstanbul Old City. Maybe you know, Sultanahmet is a very old city. And all hotels are small in this location. There is not allowed to constraction for high buildings. Our hotel is 3 floors and we have 2 type of the rooms. Superior and Deluxe Room. Superior room is looking to back side of the building and Deluxe room is looking Hagia Sophia Museum. So there is no chance to change of the view in Sultanahmet. If you want to see some view, please walk 1 minute from the hotel to every historical place. Because our hotel is in center of Sultanahmet. Our guest's comments are very important for us. So when you come to our hotel next time, we will solve your all problems. Thank you very much for taking a time to write a review about our hotel anyway. Best Regards, Front Office Manager

Hyvä hotelli

Yöpyminen hotellissa oli yleisesti hyvä mutta henkilökuntan valitsemiseen voidaan silti panostaa enemmän. Henkilökunta sanoi meille että aamianen kuuluu mukaan, joten lähdin aamulla aamiaiseen ja huomasin että henkilökunta kirjoittaa huoneen numeron. kävin puhumassa respan henkilökunnan kanssa (Serkan-niminen, sama henkilö joka sanoi aamiaisen kuuluvan huoneen hintaan) ja hän vastasi että " en minä niin sanonut ja teidän on maksettava 100 TL" epäkohteliasta eikä myöntäny virheensä.!
