Hotel close to major historical places

Posted Apr 4, 2014
The hotel, it's location and the staff were excellent. The downside is the wifi, absolutely awful and no sound proofing as you can actually hear the people in the next room talking and late at night. The opening and closing of the door rooms would send our door shaking as if it were being opened. But if you don't mind the above then it is a great place to stay ;)

很好的酒店

Posted Apr 4, 2014
Pros: 经理人非常好,有耐心,态度又好,又亲切。可以说是在土耳其十几天遇到最好的酒店,木有之一。
Cons: 已经很好了:)
酒店地理位置不错,走去蓝色清真寺最多10分钟。 我们坐完过夜大巴7-8点到酒店。boy很勤劳,说搬行李没几秒,2个大箱子+大袋子一转眼就被存起来了,很效率。 经理让我们先去餐厅吃早餐喝茶休息一下,回头再给我们介绍酒店、房间和其他信息。 休息完才10点都不到,经理就提供了2个房间给我们自己挑选,顿时觉得好温馨好人性化哦。这服务态度实在没话说。

Great location, helpful staff

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: Location, staff
Cons: Breakfast
It's a great location right in the old city and walking distance to the Blue Mosque etc. The building is really beautiful and the rooms very comfortable with a modern bathroom. Only downside is the breakfast which isn't very good. (Bad coffee, cold eggs but lots of salad type ingredients). Staff were very helpful and all the recommendations for restaurants were great.

Great hotel for newbies to Istanbul!

Posted Mar 28, 2014
Pros: Please see above.
Cons: Not much really. Maybe better lit hallway, but it's motion sensored which saves energy.
Location: Please see above.
The hotel is a lovely place, very nice room, very clean and well kept, comfortable with the NICEST staff who will help you in any way they can. This was the kind of place i needed after my 10 hours of flight and 6 hours layover in Houston. The breakfast is delicious and traditional to Turkey-- any country that has olives on the breakfast menu wins in my book. Oh, and SO close to the Aya Sofia, palace, Blue Mosque, etc. Great area too, it is safe and lovely.

Helpful staff

Posted Mar 22, 2014
Pros: See comments above.
Location: Blue Mosque. Sofya . Galata Tower. The Ottoman palace.
I forgot something and the staff was extremely helpful in solving my problem within an amazingly short time. The location is fabulous too as it's very close to the major tourist attraction sites and it is very quiet at night as well. I would definitely use this again and recommend this to those who want a nice hotel with good services and great location. The breakfast buffet had a variety of food as well.

Great experience! Perfect location, great staff

The place is perfectly located ... All main attractions are 5 minutes walk! and the neighborhood is beautiful. The staff is really friendly, helpful and respectful. The hotel is clean and very well kept and the breakfast is also good. I will come back every time.

Good location, rest just ok

Posted Feb 19, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Breakfast.
Location: Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace all a short walk away.
There was nothing really wrong with the Sultan's Royal Hotel, but it was not stellar, either. Staff were polite. Breakfast was fair, but not exceptional. The location, just around the corner from the Hippodrome, was quite good. Would likely not stay here again. If breakfast were better, I might. Many items just not palatable for a western diet. Olives and cabbage salad, for breakfast? I tried them, but would have been happier with cheese, fruit, and better bread selections.
