nothing special, just like others
we booked a double room, they gave us a twin room wifi was bad
Location absolutely brilliant, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast enormous.......buffet with all sorts of scrumptious food. The hotel was good value for money and I would definitely stay here again. Lots of lovely restaurants close by for dining out and we just fell in love with Istanbul.
I really liked the location!
Although no transport to door the reception sent a porter to the taxi where we parked closeby when helpful taxi driver rang everything about the hotel represented exquisite decor and old world charm and manners. Very happy to stay there again
Only thing that could have gone wrong would be the inability to take a taxi to front door. But is was no problem on the day
Fabulous location Really helpful staff Great breakfast Really quiet rooms
Loved the rooms, the atmosphere and most of all the staff. I was made to feel so welcome
Room could be smelly at times. Probably from the location of the air conditioning air inlet.
Room a bit tiny
The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. the hotel was walking distance to most of the attractions in the old city and very close to the tram station. cleanliness, breakfast, and service was all exemplary. It was also great value for money. All together a perfect hotel for tourists to Istanbul.
couldn't be there longer
Hotel Sapphire is amazing :) everything was perfect :) thank you for all :)
Friendly, helpful staff Close proximity to all Old City sites, tram, and numerous restaurants Room was small, but very comfortable (A/C, toiletries, shower) Amenities were great (WIFI, breakfast, welcome drink and thank you gift) Felt very safe and comfortable as a single, female traveler
Great location, near the most important things to see. Very cheap.
Rooms are a bit small. Pool does not look inviting.
The hotel is in a great location in the old part of Istanbul. I loved everything about this hotel especially the service and exceptionally professional and helpful staff. Will always stay here in the future when in Istanbul.
The rooms are a little on the small side but we knew about this before hand and to be fair is typical of most of the hotels in this part of Istanbul so I wouldn't let it put you off unless you like particularly large rooms.
Excellent location. Fantastic staff. Lovely swimming pool, sauna & Jacuzzi. Comfortable reception area to sit down. Good variety for breakfast.
Nothing - would highly recommend this hotel.
The staff was so kind and the pool its good too, bed was so comfortable
Rooms looked more beatiful on the web
The location was good as gold close enough to walk to all the major tourist attractions in the old city. The staff kind and go out of their way to help organise your travels if you wish, Thanks to all the staff,
The internet in our room was weak.
Lovely room, excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff, lots of choice for breakfast
Comfort and convenience
Noise - strong noise from neighboring rooms and the street. Air conditioned - cant be used at night as far too strong Rooms are small, corridors look dingy and are narrow Breakfast looks rich but is of average quality.
Lack of attention to cleanliness of room
- Perfect location, only 5 minute walk from historical sites - Nice area with many nice restaurants and shops - The staff is super friendly and willing to help whenever they can
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is great for both proximity to tourist sites and restaurants.
We had several hotel staff enter our room, some without knocking, while we were in the room (some couldn't speak English to explain why they wanted to enter our room). The pool is in the basement and so during summer it's a sauna and not very enjoyable.
Good location Very helpful staff Good amenities Good breakfast
The staff was the greatest part of my stay at this hotel!! They are very hospitable and helpful with any questions or concerns that may arise. I forgot one of my bags in the room and didn't notice until I was back in America. I contacted them and they were very friendly and agreed to send it to me. I am impressed with how professional they are. Also, The location is the best!! I absolutely recommend staying at sapphire hotel and I will definitely be returning!
