In the center of the historic peninsula of Sultanahmet, Amiral Palace Hotel is only a 5 minute walk from Hagia Sophia. It offers guest rooms with free Wi-Fi and has a Turkish restaurant.
Score from 165 reviews Very good
Hosts were super-helpful and just all-round nice people. The room was somewhat small but spotless and excellent. This is the fourth hotel I've stayed at in Istanbul but by far the best.
The breakfast selection was a bit basic. The location is a minor nuisance. While it's very close to the likes of Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet, it's a bit of a hike from the nearest public transport.
Quality of service and staff. Location-it's in quiet location but also within a short walking distance from many restaurants and major tourist sites
Room, although nice, was a bit cramped for 2 adults and 2 teenage boys.
This hotel has a central location, very close to all touristic sites but on a quiet street. The rooms are very comfortable and I really want to thank all the staff who made our stay unforgettable. We travelled as a family and the staff went out of their way to respond to any request we had. The breakfast is diverse and good and is on a terracce overlooking the bosphorus which is really nice. It's a small hotel which feels like a home away from home and we really appreciated that.
Nothing, everything was perfect. I very highly recommend this hotel and will stay again at Esans with no hesitation if I return to Istanbul.
We enjoyed our stay at Esans Hotel. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The staff was great. They ba e attention to personal service and always with a warm smile. They arranged for transportation and recommended restaurants and travel routes. We will book them again when we travel to Istanbul next year. E
Breakfast was downstairs - but there is a beautiful roof terrace that could have some coffee or somethings up there as well.
This was our first trip to Istanbul. The staff were so accommodating, basically treating you like one of the family. They recommended good ares to visit and looked after all of our needs.
Esans Hotel is a perfect choice for traveler's looking for a personal, lovely small hotel with an authentic feel in Sultanahmet. It's tucked away on a quiet street and is just a short walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, parks, shops, restaurants and many historic sites. We found Esans through the internet and are so glad we did and would return. Engin and the staff were very hospitable and helpful. They immediately sent us travel information about Turkey, Istanbul and Sultanahmet when they received our reservation. They arranged our pick up from the airport and it was easy and efficient. They went out of their way to make sure our room accommodations were as requested and we had a large lovely room overlooking the sea. Their traditional Turkish breakfast each morning was delicious with so many choices, lots of fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff was extremely polite and unfailingly helpful for making reservations and anything we needed or asked about.
The hotel is located in a former historic building- the home of a perfume maker for the Sultan. This of course is part of its charm - the rooms, beds, airconditioning, bathrooms and amenities are great- the only thing to know is that if stairs are a concern - there is no elevator. It was not a problem for us.
The people were so friendly and accommodating. Very helpful and hospitable. They couldn't do enough for you. Very proud, and rightfully so of their little hotel. Good location - a bit hidden - but you felt like you were going home.
Different people recommended different restaurants or hammans - sort of feel like their recommendations are based on special "cooperation" with the restaurants/Hammans and not necessarily best value and/or guest feedback.
We stayed in a room on the top floor with a view of the sea that was lovely. The room was small but clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was quite nice. The staff was friendly and helpful and arranged for our airport transportation and tickets to see a folk dance show. The location was great to explore all of the Sultanahmet area, and there are lots of restaurants nearby.
The air conditioner in the room didn't do much to cool off the room, so it was a little too warm at night. Also, be aware that the spiral staircase up to the rooms is very steep!
I felt to very welcome in this hotel. The breakfast was super and the rooms were nice and clean and decorated nicely. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
excellent hospitality. nice rooms and clean washrooms. location was ok if u wanna enjoy sultanahmed...5 min walk to hagia sofia and metro station.
no lifts,we have to check in the next hotel for one night as they were overbooked.breakfast need improvement.location is good .
The staff were extra friendly and went out of their way to give advice about dining and seeing the sights of Istanbul. Our room was spotlessly clean, and the breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious. Esans Hotel is within a VERY short walking distance of many major historical sights, eg. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace. We loved this hotel.
Everything. cannot say enough about the staff. Also, usually when people say "great location" they mean in the heart of the places you want to visit, which this is, but moreover, it's the bars and restaurants around it that make it unbelievable.
that we eventually had to go home.
The hotel was very well located within short walking distance of the main tourist attractions of Hagia Sofya, the Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet area. The hotel was quiet and well maintained. The staff were helpful and friendly always polite and eager to help. The rooms were neat, well furnished and clean. I would definitely stay here again if I visited Istanbul in the future. Highly recommended!
Great location. Very close to Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and lots of restaurants. The staff is super friendly and makes sure you are set for your day giving you directions, maps and suggestions of where to go.
Loved, loved, loved the service there.We actually went to the lobby one day early to drop off laundry ( from a ship) and everyone was quite helpful. After we checked in, even more so. They did everything to insure our time in Istanbil was well spent .Breakfast was ok for a foreigner. Lots there but we eat different things. Location was great.
As an older person, the steps upstairs were a pain, but thrtr wad always somrone to help if you had packages.
Fantastic breakfast with freshly sqeezed orange juice, one morning my room was decorated with rose petals, really nice! Great localisation, v quiet but close to restaurants and main attractions. V friendly staff :)
Slow internet connection, would be lovely if terrace could have beach chairs to relax after long day in town :)
Great location...few mins from Sultanahmet Square with several major attractions like Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace within walking distance. The street behind the hotel has great restaurants and night life. The rooms were also well appointed. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast spread was also nice.
Supper location . A very brightful room with very comfortable bed. The prayer Voice is highest however we closed the Windows and opened their strong air condition. Their wifi is fast. A nice terrace and very friendly staff
The location is excellent. Only Couple of walking distance from Topkapı place . The room is big and very colorful decorated. Breakfast tasty and Rich. Working staff is so much friendly and definitly recommending
Close to Hagia Sophia and restaurants, very good breakfast and friendly staff
Fabulous location close to so many of the most visited sites. Best breakfast we had in the whole of Turkey!! Loved the frexh juice and fruit. The staff were very helpful with all aspects of our stay.Quiet.
Quiet location, close to center. Friendly stuff.
Everything! from the moment we booked the service was excellent. We received a welcoming email with all the explanation needed upon arrival and general turistic information for Istanbul. We arrived with the taxi booked directly with the hotel (I would recommended it, as the fix tarif can be useful in case of traffic like we had and the car was really nice) and were welcomed with tea really nicely. I found it really nice that they offer to carry our luggages as there was no elevator. The room was really nice - just enough space for what we needed and really confortable. Stunning view from the terrace and really calm space to relax The breakfast was excellent, turkish specialities and everything fresh the staff of the hotel was really nice from the receptionnists to the cleaners/cookers - really welcoming and friendly, and as well really helpful with some advice about what to visit and where to go And finally the location is perfect - really not even 5 min walking for topkapi and Hagia Sophia
Nothing - I would definitly like to go back
The staff, location were excellent, rooms were clean, cosy. Views to sea. Roof terrace where you could bring and have your breakfast. Again excellent and friendly staff
Breakfast: there were olives, hummus, cous cous, different types of jam, orange juice. But no bread, and I am not sure whether olives is a good breakfast choice, also food didn't look fresh and the whole breakfast room was in the lobby. I still don't understand why can't they serve breakfast in the terrace and have all the breafast facilities there instead of of the lobby room?
