Premium Room & Premium Location...

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 20, 2015

The Ottoman H. Imperial is not close to the mesmerizing Hagia Sophia but right next to it! I mean when you walk out the front door, actually the wall you see is just the wall of Hagia Sophia, it could take you only 30 seconds to get in, which is amazing. Frankly speaking you can not beat the location! We had booked a premium room which was big enough and facing the Hagia Sophia so it makes you feel like you just get into its garden. It may take you only 2 min to get to the closest tram station which gives you access to every single sight in the city. The hotel has a restaurant dealing with the Ottoman style cuisine. I mean if you wanna try sth different, just end up there at least one night, you will not regret! I really loved the introduction talk given by the guest relations people upon your check-in regarding what to do, what to see and how to get there. It saves you more time than you think given that the city is so big... All in all great place to stay with...

Great Find!

This hotel was a great find! All the historical sites were within walking distance, as were shops and restaurants. The tram was only a short walk away and you could take that quickly to the other side of the Golden Horn. The rooms were somewhat small but clean and comfortable. Many amenities were included, such as a mini bar. The hotel has a Turkish feel to it rather than that of a large chain hotel, which was wonderful. I did not go to Istanbul to swim or exercise in a workout room, so I did not miss these amenities. I got my exercise walking around the beautiful historic sites in Istanbul. The staff at the hotel were the greatest! I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Unique Quality: The breakfast buffet was plentiful and good and the outdoor terrace was wonderful for dinner. The staff was outstanding. They stored our luggage while we took a sidetrip to Cappodocia, and went out of their way to help us find what we were looking for as far as shops, entertainment, and restaurants. I cannot say enough good things about the staff! We were in room 406 which was a corner room with windows on two walls. It was bright and cheerful. I would much rather stay in the Sultanamet area than other areas of the city due to the feel of truly being in Istanbul rather than in an area of large, modern hotels like any other large city in Europe. We walked around at night with no worry and found everyone helpful and friendly. English was spoken and we were made to feel as though we were part of a family. Great hotel.

Directions: Near Hagia Sophia and Sultanamet Square
