Great location and service

Great location for a short break as everything we wanted to do was close by. The staff were really helpful with any queries at any time of day or night. Great city - would definitely go back and stay here again!

A delightful escape.

We were overall pleasantly satisfied with the hotel and our surroundings but were disappointed that the 'Hammam' was under renovation.

Perfect Location

The hotel is located in a quiet spot in the centre of the old city of Istanbul about midway between the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) and Grand Bazaar. Best method of arrival is by Metro then tram (T1) from the airport disembarking at Cemberlitas. Recommended.

Tolle Ferien

Das Hotel hat eine gute Lage in Sultan Ahmet und ist direkt mit ÖV zu erreichen. Leider haben Taxis Mühe den Weg zu finden. Gutes Preis-Leistungsvergleich mit freundlichem und hilfsbereitem Personal

Toller Familienurlaub

Das Hotel ist sehr gepflegt und sauber. Das (Frühstücks-) Restaurant im 5. Stock bietet grandiose Aussicht über die Altstadt und den Bosporus. Die Speisekarte ist nicht gross, die angebotenen Speisen aber sehr lecker. Der Service ist sehr aufmerksam und zuvorkommend. Das Receptions-Personal machte zwar manchmal einen leicht gelangweilten Eindruck, war aber jederzeit hilfsbereit und erfüllte alle Wünsche umgehend. Das Hotel liegt optimal, um die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Altstadt zu erkunden. Grosser Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Cisterna Basilica (unbedingt besuchen!) und die blaue Moschee sind alle in wenigen Minuten zu Fuss erreichbar.

Voyage découverte

L'hôtel est très bien situé (proche de la Mosquée bleue, de Ste Sophie et du Grand Bazar), dans la partie ancienne de la ville et dans un endroit calme. Le tram, moyen de transport très bien adapté, est également à deux pas de l'hôtel. L'intérieur est toutefois vieillot et peu dynamique (manque de lumière, de vie d'une manière générale). Idem pour les chambres qui sont très sombres et auxquelles il manque une touche de modernisme.

Super Lage - Preis/Leistung nicht befriedigend

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt im Sultanhan Hotel. Es hat an nichts gefehlt, Hotel ist sauber und funktional. Die Lage mitten im historischen Zentrum ist perfekt, alles ist problemlos zu Fuss erreichbar. Es handelt sich hier aber ganz klar um ein drei Sterne Hotel und sicher nicht um ein fünf Sterne Hotel - Preis/Leistung ist daher nicht sehr überzeugend. Personal an Empfang war sehr freundlich und sehr hilfreich. In diesem Sinn absolut ein sehr gutes Hotel das empfehlenswert ist für Aufenthalt - aber bezüglich Komfort und Küche, inkl. Frühstücksbuffet nicht zu viel erwarten.
