The three most outstanding features of this boutique hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet are: Its location, its staff and its views from the roof terrace.
From Sinan and Erol on the front desk and Jerry at the bar to Sezgin and Dariya in the 5th floor lounge and terrace, the staff could not be friendlier or more accommodating.
Views from the terrace – whether over the wonderful breakfast buffet prepared by Dariya and served by Sezgin or with a glass of wine at sunset – are breathtaking.
Located not 100 meters from the Sultanahmet tram stop, it is within an easy walk to virtually every principal site in the old city or a short tram ride to everything else.
The rooms are small, but comfortable – and can be noisy (especially on lower floors) at night due to the lively night scene.
The staff also provided helpful advice on everything from how to use the transit system to sights to see and places to shop. (The latter, however, should be taken with a large grain of salt – this is Istanbul, after all!)
We would stay there again and recommend it without hesitation.

To really enjoy the hotel you need to be good on stairs and hills. The great feature is the lounge/breakfast room on the fith floor. And the setting amongst steep streets in the heart of the antiques district.
This is urban life. Not a tourist artificial world.

Had a lovely time in Instanbul and staying at the Celine Hotel. Can't recommend it enough. The location was perfect for sightseeing in the old town, but the best part really was the lovely staff who went out of their way to make our stay great. For us, this echoed the overall friendliness of the people in Istanbul.

I stayed in the hotel for a few nights as a lone traveler and I was made to feel very welcome and was given all the information I required during my stay. The rooms are immaculate, the staff are very friendly and helpful and it is very reasonably priced - I will definitely be staying again!

This hotel is a small scale boutique offering. The staff were very helpful and made transfer arrangements from and the airport in advance of our arriving. They made great restaurant recommendations and helped us navigate the city. The hotel is steps away from everything you want in Old Town Istanbul, with tram access also very accessible. The terrace restaurant over-looks the Blue Mosque and the food and setting were excellent.

The reception team was very kind and helpful! Excellent customer service! a little bit disappointed with the breakfast buffet. Not a lot of choice. The bed was comfortable but we felt the room was small even for 2 people.
The room was very clean everyday!
