Boutique and unique

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Located in the heart of Sultanamet with views of the Blue Mosque from the room balcony topped off the excellent first impression this hotel gives on arrival. Staff couldn't have been more welcoming explaining the layout and facilities. This hotel is directly opposite its larger sister hotel which houses the breakfast room and pool area but in my opinion the Sura Design is the better option, rooms are unique and the service so much more personal. The Sura Grill Restaurant next to reception produced excellent food from its open plan kitchen. Definitely on my way back here.

Great hotel with an Amazing Staff

Posted Jul 4, 2016
Sura Design is not anymore a hotel for my wife and I , it became a second home. After a lovely stay , my wife had a medical condition and had to be rushed to the hospital. We have received an amazing treatment by the entire staff. They were extremely helpful and manager sent someone with us to stay beside us and help in translation he was calling every couple of minutes to ensure that everything is ok. it is great to enjoy the facilities of any hotel but when great facilities come along with an amazing staff , it results in a second home Thanks Sura Design for everything

5 Star hotel!

Posted Jun 21, 2016
A 5 star quality hotel in the centrum of Istanbul was quite amazing, service was incredible. Staff were very accommodating. It was a great option to use the amenities from Hagia Sophia Hotel. The breakfast buffe was unbelievable amazing..so much varieties. Such a fun area to try all kinds of different Turkish food, and enjoy entertaiments. We will stay there again, and recommend friends for sure. Thanks for making us have a great time!

Centraal gelegen goed hotel

Posted May 5, 2016
Goed verzorgd hotel op een korte afstand van de Sultanahmet moskee en het Aya Sofia museum. In de buurt van een heleboel bezienswaardigheden en met de tram om de hoek. Lekker en gevarieerd ontbijt en met vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Schone en ruime kamers. Absoluut een aanrader!

Best hotel for a trip in Istanbul

Posted May 1, 2016
Pros: Services, breakfast
Cons: Housekeeping services.
Location: Very close to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, don't require transportation. Grand Bazaar , 10 minutes walk, it's a pleasure.
I have stayed at this hotel for three nights. The hotel is right in Sultanahmet, very close to all points of interest. Moreover, is very quite, despite of the busy location. Upon checking in, our host Özkan was excellent, he offered real 5* services. Breakfast was amazing, a great variety of choices, which many items that are changed daily. There is a person in the breakfast area which can cook what omelette you like, while you wait at the table. The room with balcony is perfect for serving a tea or coffee. I would definitely recommend it and probably I would stay again here.
