Celine Hotel

Peykhane Cad. No:28 Sultanahmet, Istanbul - Map
 
 
"Fantastic Hotel in the centre of old city"
The Celine Hotel is the perfect location for all your adventures in the old part of the city. With the Sophia Square only minutes walk and the both Blue Mosque and Sophia Mosque round the corner. Even the Topkapi palace is only 10 minutes away. Lots of cobbled street so wear good pair of trainers for your walks around this beautiful city. Virtually everything including the grand bizarre is walking distance. If you don't mind the walk you can easily get to the ferry area and catch a Bosphorus tour boat. Don't book any excursions beforehand. Get to the sites early and pay at gate you will enjoy the visits so much more. The tour guides rush to much and you learn nothing from them but random dates that you will no doubt forget by the time to leave the site. Topkapi palace requires at least half if not a full day. You can never get lost lots of sign posts with area names so as long as you remember which general area your in you can get around. Didn't try the taxis although some one mentioned they where given a long ride for a short journey. The trams look like the best bet get a card and top up just like the Ouster card in London. You pay for your journey its apparently quite cheap. Eating places everywhere try not going in the places where there are lost of tourists there more expensive, go the ones the locals go there better value and probably have better food. The food is very nice but a little bland really expected a bit more spice in Turkish cuisine. Would go again!!!

"Friendly and good location."
Very helpful bunch of guys. Friendly. Great breakfast. Very close to main attractions and short walk to baths, metro and grand bazaar. Metro takes you to Taksim, Galata/Beyoglu and ferry for Bosphorus cruise. Restaurants, bars and convenience/mix grocers nearby. Some people may think it is in a too quiet spot. It isn't. It is quiet to be in and several steps to the noise and bustle when you step out for the night.

"Great place to stay"
I returned here for a few days on my way out of Turkey, and all of the staff somehow remembered me 20 days later! The manager was really nice and gave me a free room upgrade from a budget double to a suite, which was such a nice room. The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished, breakfast is one of the better I've had in 10 hotels in Turkey, location is perfect to see the sites, and the staff goes above and beyond.

"Nice Hotel-good location: Will NOT give refunds"
We were a day late getting in because of several delayed flights (never fly Delta) and so we checked into Sarnic, a historical building converted into a hotel. The staff there spoke English well and were extremely helpful and polite, our room was clean, well-decorated, and on the first floor. Overall, our experience was pleasant, however it irks me to no end that I have to pay for a night that I did not stay at this hotel for no other reason than an airline's fault (I'm a college student and their no refund policy kills me). Regardless, the location was magnificent-we could see the Blue Mosque from the terrace restaurant. Walking around was fun, and we could stay out later because the hotel was so close by. The wifi was spotty, but the experience overall was definitely worth the trip, and all things considered we did get a good deal through Expedia.

"Hard to beat the location"
The reason I would recommend this place is because of it's location. It was very easy to get to via the metro from Ataturk airport (just one transfer). It takes about a minute to walk to one of the most popular tourist spots, the Blue Mosque, and about three minutes to walk to the Hagia Sophia. That is if you are walking at a leisurely pace. The downside, the room I stayed in had very thin, uninsulated walls and windows that didn't keep any sound out. I could hear the people's conversation in the next room clearly and the noise from the street right outside the window.

"Great Location"
The Golden Horn was perfectly situated in Old Town Istanbul; the Blue Mosque and Hague Sophia were within a 10 minute walk and provided the view from our rooftop breakfast table. Unfortunately they stuck us in a ground floor room so breakfast was the only time we had a view.

"Great Hotel in Sultanahmet"
This hotel is only a short walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Hippodrome, Cisterns, Topkapi Palace and all the other things you would want to see in the old town of Istanbul. The staff were great, the room clean and well appointed (plus A/C). Breakfast was great but gets a bit boring after a few days as there is little variety. The hotel is located on a quiet back street and with the double-glazing is always quiet (even during the "call to prayers") Lots of good restaurants nearby or only a short walk up to the Sultanahmet restaurant area around the team station. Marabella Restaurant was our favourite and is only round the corner.from the hotel.

"Convenient location near the must-see Hagia Sofia."
Good location to see the main sights in the old city. We walked easily to most places but the hotel is also good to catch the tram to reach other locations on the other side of the Bosphorous. The street parallel to the hotel's street is packed with places to eat and drink, touristy but fun. The hard-working staff in the hotel are super helpful for the first-time visitor, always friendly and patient with any questions you may have. Rooms are air-conditioned and bathrooms have good showers, but I wouldn't rate this a top 4 star. Towels had seen better days. However, we did opt for a standard room which I think was the smallest with no view at all from the windows so it was dark, and it was sometimes street noisy. I was disappointed that the roof terrace wasn't open because the views would have been good. There are many places nearby that offered terrace views where we often had a evening drink. Breakfast included was fresh and plentiful with help-yourself honey dripping from a standing honeycomb!
