“Quality hotel in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

To be honest we did not know what we were going to run across, we had done our homework, but as you know what you see on the web etc.. sometimes are different when you arrive. We were were happy when we arrived , the hotel was just as we has expected, it's in wonderful location, has great staff who are very friendly and helpful, spot on location, near all the main attractions to visit, good transportation link if you wanted to experience outside of the Sultanahmet area, rooms are nicely decorated, furnished, bright, clean and comfortable. Good variety of food on buffet for breakfast.

Could not have asked for a better location. All the attractions we had in mind to visit were a short walk away, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque as well as the famous Grand Bazar. Rooms are well portioned, good size bed , comfortable and clean. Staff look after you very well, always willing to help out with any inquries you might have, they also have some good suggestions when it comes to where to go and how to get there.

My partner and I absolutely enjoyed staying at Ottoman Hotel Imperial and the wonderful hospitality shown towards us. The staff were just charming, helpful and friendly.

It is has a great location, in the centre of the old town, very short walk to all the main sights and close to many restaurants and cafes. It is also close to a tram stop if you want to travel to other areas of the city.

The rooms are nicely decorated with flare, very comfortable and clean, bathroom was large and well equipped.

The breakfast buffet was lovely offering a wide range of options.

My first business trip happened to be in Istanbul, booked Ottoman Hotel Imperial based on positive reviews on this site also it's close to all the major attractions I thought I would have a chance to visit before I returned back but unfortunately time ran out.

It's a wonderful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, stayed for two nights , all positive, rooms are well prepared, good size bed, comfortable, clean, good wifi in the room. Good selection for breakfast. Would stay here again one day when I return back for a proper visit.

This hotel is in a great location - it is near the tram, behind the Hagia Sofia and a quick walk to Topkapi Palace gate and everything else. A couple days I would pretty much roll out of bed at the last minute to hit the sights since it was so convenient. The hotel has a pleasant covered patio restaurant and indoor breakfast area - great on sunny days. The breakfast buffet has pretty good offerings including little simits, cherry juice and other turkish specialties along with western food - I ate way too many potato croquettes. Staff is friendly. If you are a light sleeper - I would definitely recommend requesting a room on the more quiet side. My room faced the street - I was fine with it since noise ended around midnight and wasn't that loud - but various noises included the tram running and club noise across the street. The location is off a small street on the left side of the Hagia Sofia (when you face the entrance gate), the same road that the tram runs on. I found that not too many knew the location on my first day - but once I was settled it was easy to get around.

My friend and I absolutely loved this place and its wonderful Turkish hospitality. The staff were just amazing - charming, helpful and friendly.

It is in a fab location in the centre of the old town. It is a very short walk to all the main sights and close to a plethora of restaurants and cafes. It is also close to a tram stop if you want to travel to other areas of the city.

The rooms are nicely decorated with an ethnic flare, very comfortable and clean and our bathroom was large and well equipped.

The breakfast buffet was lovely offering a wide range of options. We ate so much that it kept us going all day.

A really special hotel, we couldn't fault it.

This is a great hotel for a few reasons:

1.Top location- stones throw from all tourist sites.
2.Amazing staff.
3.Comfortable clean and nicely decorated rooms.
4. Luxury bathroom.

There is also a fabulous terrace, too cold for us to eat there but would be beautiful in the spring/summer.

Strongly recomended.
