Really lovely hotel, right in the heart of the old city. Extremely convenient location. Two-minute walk to the Sirkeçi tramway, which takes you up to the Agia Sophia, Sultanahmet Mosque (known as the Blue Mosque), Topkapi Palace, and Basilica Cistern in just a few minutes. A couple of stops further on the same line, and you’re at the Grand Bazaar. From the hotel, you’re also just a five-minute walk from the Spice Bazaar (Egyptian Bazaar) and the ‘New Mosque’, and the ‘ekmek balik’ (fish sandwich) sellers by the Galata bridge. Our room was characterful, well-appointed, and clean, with very cool vaulted brick ceiling (the hotel is a converted tobacco warehouse). Quiet room, even with Istanbul’s traffic, and the call to prayer from the New Mosque very close by. The breakfast buffet was truly excellent. Great variety and quality. You have to try the honeycomb with Turkish yogurt. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would be very happy to come back here again.

The Regie Ottoman is a perfect hotel for first-time and return visitors. Exceptionally-well located, this is a boutique hotel with high standards of service and a splendid Turkish breakfast to start the day. The concierge, Gokhan, is worth his weight in gold. He went out of his way to make sure all our needs were met during our six night stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and well-appointed. The wonderful mattress was perfect after our 12 hour flight. Highly recommended for anyone interested in visiting the historic sites of the old city and the areas around the Golden Horn.

Let me start by saying that this hotel has been one of the finest properties with the best value, location and staff as I have experienced in my world travels. I am happy to recommend the Regie hotel to anyone planning to visit Istanbul; you will not be disappointed! From my experience (travelling as a couple), here's why we loved it: Staff: Gokhan and the entire staff here are fabulous (he is famous on TripAdvisor reviews for a reason!). They went above and beyond to answer all of my tourist-related questions prior to arrival and organized top-notch taxi transfer service from the airport which made the commute fast and easy. We ended up experiencing an unforeseen situation and they were beyond empathetic and flexible to meet our needs -- these are the times when you can truly tell if the people/company are authentic and caring --- and they are! Their hospitality truly made us feel so welcome in Turkey. Hotel: Rooms are very sophisticated and upscale; we had a standard room, so I can only imagine the superior suites! Everything was spotless and the bed was comfy. Breakfast was in a beautiful room and had a good variety on offer each day. Wish we would have had time to use the complimentary sauna downstairs! Location: Prime location within walking distance of all tourist sights in the Sultanahmet area. It was on a side lane of a popular street, making it easy to access, yet sound-proof from the city noise. We felt completely safe walking home at night from dinners to this location, which is super important. As a side note, I'd used Google Streetview to preview prior to booking and it was hard to get a true vibe of the area. I can attest that it is an excellent location. All in all, if we ever get the pleasure of visiting this marvelous city again, we will 100% be return guests at the Regie Ottoman.

Stayed for 5 days in September at the Regie. What a fabulous experience! I picked the hotel after zillion hours of research because we wanted: top location as first visitors to Istanbul, personalized service at boutique hotel, chic stylish accommodations, and great breakfast. The Regie exceeded our expectations in EVERYTHING! Will summarize: 1. Location: From the Regie it was so easy to reach all the major sights in Istanbul we wanted to see in 5 days. We mostly walked to everything in Sultanahmet: Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Spice Museum, Blue Mosque and the Museums are all located no more than 15 min walking. We also walked over to Galata and Karakoy as the bridge that crosses over is just minutes from the hotel. For sights like Dolmabahce Palace and others we found the tram the most convenient way to move around. There are trams just every couple of minutes and a stop just a couple blocks from the hotel. The Eminou ferry terminal likewise is only a few minutes walk from the hotel and we took ferries to the Asian side and to ports along the Bosphorus from there. The Regie’s location allowed us to do so much more than I thought possible without being exhausted. 2. Facilities: The hotel is small but quite chic and stylish. We stayed in a Superior Room that was just the right size, had tall ceilings and plenty of light from tall windows. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was modern and the linens and furniture all quite stylish and tasteful. We love boutique hotels that have rustic/antique/old world elements but have been updated with modern furnishings and confortable touches. The Regie is just that! 3. Service and Staff: The hotel offers personalized attention and the staff is always eager to help in anything you need. The manager Gokhan is fantastic! He made recommendations for us that were right on the spot! Everyone did everything to ensure us a fantastic stay, going above and beyond. We are also very grateful to Melissa and Kerim who greeted us every morning with the broadest smile possible, and to Mustafa who cleaned our room to perfection, and also to the rest of the staff that unfortunately cannot remember all their names. 4. Food. Simply amazing! The Regie’s was one of the best breakfast we had in Turkey, every day they had different warm dishes, theirs were the best Menemem eggs we had in all of Turkey over 2 weeks, their fruits and breads incredible fresh. We had 5 breakfast at the hotel and we always had something different to try and enjoy. We also had dinner one night at their Michelin restaurant Ocak. (We learned that Rick Steves had dined there the night after us!). I highly recommend dinner at Ocak, a memorable experience in a lovely setting. If you like stylish but unpretentious luxury boutique hotels, personalized service and attention, and the best location in Istanbul for first (and even second or third) travelers, this is your spot!

Regie Ottoman is a great find, a small boutique hotel in an old Ottoman building fantastically situated within a 15 mins walk to siltanhamet (or quicker by tram) and 5 /10 mins from the ferry, Spice market etc. Rooms are small but comfortable, well designed and quiet. Regie Ottoman also features a great value Michelin starred restaurant (Ocak) serving tasty ottoman. It also serves an excellent and varied buffet breakfast. The bar (Brasserie Roi) is a fun spot to enjoy the world go by with a cold draft beer or cocktail. Staff were very friendly and more than happy to help with good suggestions.

What a fantastic hotel. Perfect size and great standards of service throughout. The bed was so comfortable and the facilities perfect. Breakfast was high quality and unhurried. The hotels front staff were particularly helpful and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for them even the barman was brilliant. I have to say that Gorkem is an amazing asset to the hotel on the concierge desk. Always happy and helpful. Situated in the old town area it is a perfect location.

Excellent Hotel, Excellent Staff, Excellent Location We stayed here for 7 nights and couldn't be happier with our lodging accommodations. Our room is very nice, clean, comfortable, with a mini bar fridge and complementary instant coffee that wasn't too shabby. The staff were very friendly and answered all of our questions, gave us great recommendations for restaurants and booked our airport travel. We were also very happy with the breakfast selections! A wide spread that varied slightly from day to day. You absolutely cannot go wrong with the location as well. If you're in good walking shape you can reach a majority of the old town district. The areas we took public transit were the ancient city walls (not the sea walls), and Taksim square (for the shopping district). Also, getting a metro card and crossing town is fairly easy for here.
