Große Zimmer in zentraler Altstadtlage

Posted 25-Mar-2015
Pros: Große Zimmer, zentrale Lage in der Nähe von vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten
Cons: Eventuell die Sauberkeit der Zimmer, teilweise waren Kleine Dinge beschädigt, ein paar Empfehlungen zu Restaurants in der Nähe bei Anreise.
Location: In absoluter Nähe zu den Touri-Attraktionen, es ist jedoch etwas schwierig gute und bezahlbare Restaurants zu finden.
Wir waren zu zweit in einer der Standard Suiten und waren überrascht, wie groß das "Zimmer" ist: wir hatten eine Zweizimmerwohnung mit kleiner Küche nur für uns. Die Einrichtung ist schnörkellos aber zweckmäßig. In der Küche waren Gasherd, Kühlschrank, wasserkocher, Kaffeemaschine... Klimaanlage und Heizung sind vorhanden. WLAN ebenso. Es wurde täglich gereinigt und neue Handtücher / Bettwäsche gab es dann auch, aber wenn man genau guckt findet man noch den ein oder anderen Krümel. Der Service war trotzdem zuvorkommend und umfangreich. Es gibt keine Mahlzeiten, was man natürlich mit Selbstverpflegung gut ausgleichen kann, aber ein gutes und bezahlbares Restaurant zu finden ist in dem Viertel nicht ganz leicht. Zur Lage: es gibt 4 unterschiedliche Häuser, daher kann das etwas variieren. Man fährt erst zum Büro und wird dann zu Fuß zum eigentlichen Appartement begleitet. Es sind aber wirklich alle ganz in der Nähe - keine bösen Überraschungen also. Bei meinem nächsten Urlaub würde ich vielleicht ein Hotel in Beyoglu suchen, aber die Vorteile von Sultanahmet sind die Nähe zu fast allen wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten und, dass es doch deutlich ruhiger ist (wie gesagt: cave! Ich kann nur über unser Haus sprechen) Alles in allem ein empfehlenswertes Hotel. Wir waren zufrieden. Teşekür ederiz!

Explanation of the Sultanemet Suites.

Posted 19-Mar-2015
Pros: Helpful staff.
Location: Lots of kebab shops however I suggest walking a bit as the meat isn't that great.
We stayed at the Emerald part of the hotel which is situated approx 2 minutes walk from the main hotel and reception. There are three parts to this hotel offering varying levels of facilities and comfort. The Emerald suite is not disimlar to a studio apartment with sufficient cooking facilities, a small dining table and an end suite shower room which was spacious. Off the room is a terrace overlooking a park and from here it is possible to see the everyday hustle and bustle, which to be honest can be nosiy; despite this it is a nice facility to have. We actually chose the seaview terrace but it appears that this may not exist. The location of the hotel is approx ten minute walk to the main strip however those with issues physically may find this an issue as there are a lot of hills! It did take us our weeks stay to figure out the best route to avoid too much of an ascent. The room itself was clean with room cleaning daily. This provided fresh towels daily and clean linen if required. The hotel staff were polite and only too willing to help schedule attractions to visit which, to be honest is very helpful as there is so much to see. If you are solo females beware....particularly when visiting the Grand Bizarre and they are trying to sell you items. Be assertive and its worth learning one or two Turkish phrases to make your point otherwise you will be harrased. All in all a good trip and hotel.

Schöne inländische Flair

Posted 19-Mar-2015
Da die Fenster nicht dicht waren hat Mann jedes Geräusch von der Straße mitbekommen. Da zu Reisezeit Winter war ist die Zimmer sehr kalt gewesen obwohl Klimaanlage im Dauerbetrieb war.

Nettes Stadthotel

Posted 18-Mar-2015
Pros: Das freundliche Personal, dass einen direkt mit Apfeltee begrüsst hat.
Cons: Hier und da kleine Schwachstellen, wie leichter Schimmel in der Dusche, oder ein loses Regal. Für einen einfachen Städtetrip aber völlig ausreichend!
Location: Blaue Moschee, Topkapipalast, Hagia Sophia, Taksim für Shopping, Fähre über den Bosporus auf die Asiat. Seite (kadiköy) auch sehr schön!
Die Sultanahmet Suites sind der ideale Platz, wenn man keine super hohen Anspürche hat und sich an einem einfachen Stadthotel erfreut. Zu beachten ist allerdings, dass ein "normales" Standardzimmer wohl wie schon in vorherigen Bewertungen geschrieben wurde, im Keller liegt und auch keine Küche besitzt. Bucht man ausdrücklich ein Appartment, dann kann man eine kleine und saubere Küchenzeile mit Wasserkocher, Herdplatten und Kühlschrank erwarten. Dazu gab es bei uns einen kleinen Küchentisch mit zwei Stühlen, ein schönes Sofa und ein kleiner Flachbildfernseher. Das Bad war zwar eher klein, aber hatte eine große Dusche, ausreichend Handtücher und war mit einem kleinen Föhn ausgestattet. Das Schlafzimmer hatte ein wirklich sehr bequemes Kingsize-Bett mit Klimaanlage. Generell war unser Appartment sehr hübsch typisch "türkisch" verschnörkelt, teilweise mit Stuck und goldenen Ornamenten, was uns sehr gefallen hat. Die Zimmer sind Nichtraucherzimmer. Von der Lage ist man ca. 10 Gehminuten (berghoch!) von den wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten und zur Metro (Station Cemberlitas) entfernt.

nice and comfortable appartment in the old centre

Posted 25-Feb-2015
Pros: Just a few hundred meter from the crowded city centre you stay in a quite appartment opposit a small park. Beds/matresses are, as promised, great!
Both location as well as the room were perfect. A perfect location to visit alle the typical historical and cultural places in Istanbul. We plan to get back in springtime and hope to stay in the same place. Hotel staff was very friendly and delivered a perfect service orgnising the tranportation to the airport.

Worst hotel I've ever stayed in!

Posted 22-Feb-2015
Cons: All the amenities in each room should be the same. You shouldn't have situations where one room has a soap dish, and another room doesn't.
Location: About 10 minutes walk to Grand Bazaar (Kepali chachi - English pronunciation) About 10-15 minutes walk to Blue Mosque.
This is the worst hotel/apartment I've ever stayed in! We were here for 8 days, booked only 1 room, but stayed in 2 rooms (due to water leakage) 1) There were not enough electrical sockets, so when I needed to power my appliances, I had to remove one of the lights beside the bed. 2) TV had a lot of static (reception not adjusted properly?) 3) 1 manager kept offering tours to us (as if that's all he cared about) 4) We were tricked (the facilities listed a laundry facility, but we couldn't find any.) You can walk to a laundry shop less than 10 seconds away from the office building, and another laundry shop less than 5 minutes away. 5) The wallpapers were peeling off. 6) There were renovations going on for at least 5 days (making us wake up early, feeling very irritated) 7) There were holes somewhere in the room because we could feel cold draft coming in from outside. 8) The shower door couldn't close completely. 9) There were insufficient curtains in the bed room. 10) On our last few days, both the bedroom's ceiling lamp and smoke detector were leaking water, so when we pointed this out to the manager, he relocated us to another room. The following comments are for the new room we were relocated to after water leakage was discovered. 11) The new room did not have a soap dish. 12) The curtain wasn't fixed in place, so it fell off easily. 13) Batteries were missing in the TV or air con remote controls. 14) Nearly broken chair!

Hostel NOT a Hotel

Posted 21-Feb-2015
Don't ve decieved by the website and Expedia profile. The first room I was placed in is not fit for habitation: in the midst of one of the heaviest snowfalls in Istanbul in decades the heating and insulation in the room was wholly insufficient and would not pass most European inspections. Granted the building is a listed heritage site, it is certainly not four stars in any regard. The facilities have been made to look the part and that is where it ends. The noise levels from the street and adjacent school are unbearable and incessant throughout the day and night. Pedestrian passer-by's conversations can be heard throughout the building. The street sweeper passing by at 02:00 may as well be in the room. Other than a good location, there is no recommendation to stay at this hostel unless there's absolutely no other option. The beds and linen are old and need replacing. The rooms are 'cleaned' daily but never thoroughly as would be expected in a "4 star" property.
