very friendly staff, but not great accommodation

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: staff, they were very friendly
Cons: breakfast, linens
Location: Location is great, close to all the sights in Sultanahmet
We really liked the staff and the cleanliness. Location is very convenient. But the room was pretty minimal, no view at all, very small, two twin beds pushed together. Window facing into tiny courtyard, you hear everybody if you open the window. And the breakfast was the worst I had in Istanbul, this is my sixth trip. Not a relaxing place. Would be good for young single people or couples who need a very basic place to sleep for the night.

Location, location, location!

As one might expect in a boutique hotel in an old-world city, the rooms were relatively small, the showers were very small, and amenities were limited. However, there was free wi-fi, an amazing view of the Hagia Sofia from the third floor window, and helpful staff (they booked airport returns and a Bosporus cruise for us). The hotel was comfortable. The A/C worked. The third floor room was a bit larger than the first floor room. But, this is about location, location, location. Staying in the Old City, one block from Hagia Sofia, for an affordable price is amazing! I would happily stay at Zeynep Sultan again.

This is a small, unpretentious hotel in the heart of the old town, whose resident owners made our holiday. The breakfast room on the roof is the perfect place to start your day, where the owners not only personally serve you breakfast, but provide advice on everything from the weather to the best time to visit the most popular sites and all the best places to eat. And you can walk to everything. Why would you want to stay anywhere else?

Hotel had an excellent location for walking to all main sites with an awesome view from the terrace, good access to public transportation, friendly and very helpful staff, excellent breakfast, room basic but comfortable. Only negative is that the vent in the bathroom seemed to transmit/receive sounds from other bathrooms. However, I would stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Perfekt lille hotel midt i alt det man skal se i Istanbul. Super service og imødekommenhed i det lille hotel med 24 værelser og en hyggelig morgenmadsrestaurant på tagterrassen. Og så bare en halv time fra ataturk lufthavnen. Kommer helt sikkert igen.

Welcoming hotel right by Aya Sofia

Posted May 28, 2014 on Hotels
Lovely rooftop terrace for breakfast. The room was basic but comfortable. I couldn't get the TV to work. The bathroom was tiny, but clean and everything worked. The biggest selling point is the location, right by Gulhane Park and Aya Sofia - really couldn't be bettered in the old peninsula I think - it's a quiet back street, so there is hardly any street noise. We are a married gay couple and we were made to feel extremely welcome by the staff and the owner.

Gutes Hotel am Goldenen Horn

Posted May 1, 2014
Liegt mitten in der Altstadt am goldenen Horn. Praktisch: die Nähe fast aller Sehenswürdigkeiten. Einzig meine Dusche war etwas klein. Wer das türkische Frühstück mag ist gut aufgehoben, es gibt eine Dachterrasse für das Frühstück. Bahnlinie auch in Gehweite. Vom Flughafen braucht man mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln etwa eine Stunde und kostet wenige Türkische Lira.

Great Location!

Posted Apr 18, 2014 on Hotels
This hotel is in the heart of the old city, 2 blocks from most of the tourist sites. My wife and I had a wonderful stay there. The hotel room was clean comfortable, and exactly what we expected. The breakfast was delicious, with good choices. The owner is outstanding and the staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a safe area. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Istanbul.
