The service was outstanding, the rooms extravagantly beautiful. We (thankfully) booked transportation from the airport through the Sultania. The airport was a zoo; it would have been very difficult to obtain a taxi. The cost was 40 euros total for 4 people; and worth every cent. This hotel is within walking distance to most of the major attractions. I suggest obtaining a guide. The hotel managed this for us also; and we were very pleased. Our guide, Sema Uysal, was also outstanding. We highly recommend her. On our last night the 3 women in our group wanted to go to a traditional historic Turkish bath. Our hotel managed to arrange this for us; but then went above and beyond by insisting that one of their staff meet us afterwards at 10pm and escort us back to the hotel, at no charge. As I said before the service was truly outstanding .

This hotel is in a really good location to explore the old part of Istanbul. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, my room smelt of stale smoke and the bathroom smelt a bit too. The toilet was not 100% clean either.
The room was lovely but very small. It had a small fridge /safe /TV -but no place to put suitcases except on the floor where they were always in the way. Breakfast was not my favourite but there was enough of a selection that you could put something together.The staff were excellent. We arrived at 7 in the morning. We were told that a room was available and that breakfast was on the house as soon as we were settled.
