-Genuinely can't think of anything.
The staff were so helpful. The breakfast was great and the rooms were lovely.
The pillows were hard!
Everything was perfect.
Just a minor issue regarding the air conditioner that sometimes was not reliable.
nice location, good service, free coffee in the lobby, cheap shuttle service to the airport
wlan didn't work very well
Pool and sauna in the basement, a great surprise Great staff! Very friendly and helpful. They gave us a lot of good tips and recommendation, helped us with reservations etc. Very good value for the money
The hotel offers airport shuttle and I wished that they informed me about this since they sent me 4 emails upon arrival anyway. Breakfast good, especially the omelet. But nothing cold to drink since the water was old and the juice… let me call it special …
Very friendly desk managers, comfortable room, good Wi-Fi signal, excellent location, outstanding service.
Very helpful staff Arranged airport transfer Central location close to Hagia Sophia and main bazaar The price Amazing breakfast - best ever!
the location is perfect - within the walking distance from all major touristic places, the hotel staff is friendly and helpful would reccomend it for sure
The staff were extremely helpful but not overbearing. There was a also a lovely gesture of a leaving gift of Turkish apple tea with two cups.
Nothing in particular but the decor was a little eclectic and might put some guests off!
Location, plenty of hot water
Bar could have been a little more intimate with the tv a little less obvious but we still used it nevertheless! Bathroom was a little shabby.
noisy aircondition,slow wi-fi(1,5 Mbps) dirty bathroom,small room,
Staff is very nice and helpful , good location, great information from the staff
1. Location - very conveniently located, walking distance to Sultanahmed Palace, Hagia Sophia and other historic, must-see places in Istanbul; 2. Attentive and friendly personnel, especially reception desk
1. Many suites are divided between themselves by thin inner doors - you could hear everything what happens in the adjacent suite and other guests can hear you, total absence of personal privacy - which is not comfortable at all; 2. Rooms are very small - this is the problem of majority of hotels located in the Old City in Istanbul, not only Sapphire; 3. Poor breakfast, both the quality and variety of food; 4. Room service - floors were cleaned poorly, shampoo, shower gel, other bathroom accessories - were not replenished on a daily basis, they were provided only on the first day and never replenished afterwards - we had to buy in a regular shop outside of the hotel our own shampoo, shower gel, other bathroom accessories.
Just about everything one would want and should expect from a hotel.
The staff were very friendly and very helpful
I have no criticism of this hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is ideal for restaurants, sightseeing and transport links.I have stayed in several hotels in Istanbul and this is the one I will return to.
shower fitting was insecure. Very high step into, and particularly out of bath.
Nice friendly staff who were happy to help. Only 10-15 mins walk to Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar so ideal. Tram runs close to Taksim Sq if you want to travel a bit further. Plenty of local restaurants to choose from at night so all in all a nice hotel.
Our room was tiny and although we booked 2 rooms back in March when we booked in we were on separate floors. we also bought tickets from the hotel for the Palace but although we paid the top price we only got the basic ticket and needed to pay again to enter other parts.
Breakfast, plentiful and varied Well staffed and helpful
The "more" than warm welcome from Deniz, Masood, Onour, Ali (just to name a few), warm welcome drink on a cold evening, fast service, accommodating to requests eg tv programmes, change for room with view, street directions given & tours to take. Surprise "farewell gifts". A wide selection for breakfast buffet.
Cars cannot enter the street. so having to drag luggage bags on cobbled road, in the rain at that, was most "tiring". Patrons need to be informed as how the hotel could be of service. Saw many patrons exhausted when checking in!!!!
the staff were friendly , helpful & knowledgeable .the rooms are modern & of a good size .. there is a free 1 way transfer if you are staying for over 3 days & a free soft drink & turkish delight are given upon arrival also they can organize some quite excellent city tours for you
