Despite having expectations of a decent accommodation experience at this hotel, I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival and throughout my stay. I was a first time visitor and found this hotel through extensive online research. I had limited knowledge of what Istanbul has to offer. So to make a safe decision, I searched for 5 star hotels with excellent reviews near Sultanhamet Square (which seemed to be the location that was most recommended by other visitors). I specifically chose this hotel as it offered lower prices relative to other options nearby that had the same ratings and amenities. I was not able to find much information online on what the hotel and the surrounding areas look like from the outside; but decided to rely on the fact that the reviews indicated that the location was perfect. The location is in fact not only perfect; but it is also extremely charming. The hotel is within walking distance of all must visit sites and on an an old narrow street (which makes it difficult to photograph from the outside) surrounded by restaurants and Cafes. The staff are extremely nice and professional and speak English fluently. The rooms are fairly modern and very clean (the decor is a bit 'out there' and fun). The breakfast buffet is exquisite and diverse. I also noticed that snacks were offered throughout the day. I also recommend using the hotel's own cab service. They are trustworthy and reasonably priced; and the Sura Design restaurant across the street has excellent food
The whole experience was great. The hotel is really pretty and unique inside. It makes you feel on vacation and itself will be a good memory. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The location is amazing, in a nice location that when entering and existing l, you feel like your in the old Istanbul.
No complaints. The Guest Relations Manager was very helpful. His useful initial tips on what to see and how to get to those places made the whole visit so much easier - thank you Cam. The food and service in the restaurant was great, regretted not trying it out earlier, wasted time looking for great food at a reasonable price and ambience when it was right in the hotel.
Our stay at the Sarnic was excellent! At check-in, the staff informed us of tours available and provided us with maps and how to navigate through the city. Breakfast was plentiful and offered a wide assortment. I highly recommend this hotel for it's location and staff!
I took my husband here as a gift for his 50th birthday and I was not disappointed fantastic hotel and centrally located to old town via tram and walking distance to Galata Tower and shopping street. Perfect.... will stay again one day.
