Ideal gelegen

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: die zentrale ruhige Lage und die Frühstücksterrasse.
Cons: ein reichhaltigeres Frühstück anbieten und unter den Betten wischen sowie neu Bettdecken.
Location: sehr zentral in der Altstadt, Besichtigungen, Essen
netter Empfang, Zimmer sind sehr sehr klein, aber sauber, nur unter den Betten könnte einmal gewischt werden. Frühstück ist sehr einfach, dafür war der Blick von der Frühstücksterrasse auf die Hagia Sophia einmalig. Das Hotel ist ideal gelegen, 5 Min. Wegstrecke zur Hagia Sophia und zu einer der beiden Metro Stationen und nur je 8 Minuten zur Blauen Moschee und zum Topkapi Palast.

Welcoming hotel, great locatıon.

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Pros: Location and staff.
Cons: My husband would have lıked a table lamp on hıs sıde of the bed as well!
Location: In the heart of the historıc centre, moments away from some of the most awesome buildings and locations ın the world.
Fantastic servıce from a courteous, good-humoured,professıonal staff, made us feel thoroughly comfortable, and at home. Problems wıth the water pressure ın our second floor room were attended to ımmedıately and to our satısfactıon, and we enjoyed returnıng to our room after frequent forays in the cıty. The room was small, so those wıth lots of luggage might struggle ın the space, but we were fine wıth one large suitcase and one small one. The location ıs unbeatable, and our first view on leavıng our room to go down to breakfast was the Aya Sofya, framed ın the window by the staircase - sensational. I've been to İstanbul many times, usually stayıing wıth friends, but at several hotels when there with my husband or family members. This will now be my hotel of choice. No need to look around anymore!

same price, a whole different class

Posted Aug 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
it was nice, but, even if you pay almost the same price you pay in North America, don't expect the same comfort. The location is great, the personal is great too, but the room itself is sooo small and basic... the shower is like a vertical coffin, barely having enough space to move your arms and so is the bathroom. The breakfast is ok but it was EXACTLY the same everyday...not one change.

Incredible location

The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was especially nice to be able to have breakfast outdoors on the terrace. The owner was often around during breakfast, and he was a genuine and lovely guy.

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!

Posted Jun 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
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.

Highly recommended

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.

Lige i smørhullet

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.

Litet personligt hotell med mkt vänlig hjälpsam personal. Tyst läge, utsikt mot Hagia Sofia, nära spårvagn och Topkapi. Återkommer gärna!
