You can't get any closer accommodation to Sultan Ahmet Camii.
A little bit of street noise, but expected being in the narrow streets of the old city.
The staff, room and location
The facilities and size of the lobby
Rooms were clean and well appointed,good shower, but all rather small. Breakfast room was small but the view was good. Location near to Hippodrome good.
Noise - difficult to sleep cos of noise from street, cars and restaurant downstairs. We paid over £80 a night and this was massively overpriced.
The location wise is very convinient! Walking distantance to most tourist attraction in old city. Nearby to a tram station also!
• Location was excellent for those visiting Istanbul for the historic places. • Staff were very helpful especially Kazem. • Although the price is a little bit high, but compared to other hotels in the area it's fair.
•Breakfast is good, but needs more verity.
is very expensive compared with the other hotels the owner very rude just he's looking for money It is only looking for money and not to please the customer. Also, there is a bad smell in the rooms and did not clean the rooms just they come to put poor soap and did not change the sheets for five days until I asked for change. the breakfast poor and old however musty found in the juice and breakfast includes eggs, and old cheese only . I do not advise this hotel it is a waste of money
Really good place to stay especially when it comes to have a good location, 5 minute walk to the tram station (Wich takes you straight to the other side of Galata´s bridge). Located just in the corner of the Hippodrome, 5 minutes away from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Good restaurant offers near by. Clean rooms, totally renovated on 2014 and nice and helpful staff. I totally recommend this place to stay.
The location was perfect and central. My favorite thing to do each morning was just grab a tea in the top floor with a perfect view to the Blue Mosque.Hasan and other staff were very kind and helpful in all of my needs. And for a solo traveller, the place had a bar/resto downstairs with just enough buzz and social life to make you feel surrounded. Overall, a lovely experience. Will definitely come back !
The elevator is a bit small but it wasn't too much of a deal for me as I was on the 2nd floor. It did have some technical difficulties on the second day so moving the luggage down was hindering. The staff however was very attentive.
location was perfect . Very Close to all historic places in old city.Staff was very coperative.
A bit expensive .
Loved how close we were to everything. Super breakfast which was included in price and great wifi which was free. Staff were helpful too.
Location and very accommodating staff very especially a young employee Mr Onur at the front desk who was very helpful indeed in all that we required giving us a feel like home.A few negative points were quickly fixed & He always gave excellent advise of how to go where and save money.
The fact that the breakfast attendant did not wear any gloves while handling food and picked up everything by bare hands to arrange on buffet plates !.We informed the management & they promise to take care of it The good thing is they were very prompt in taking action . Which is very important .
I enjoyed stay in the hotel .the stuff were very good but the receptionist was fantastic in how for his kindness helping me every day to find great deals around and for anything. Great man and with fantastic professionalism.

Very good location next to the Hippodrome square in front of the Blue Mosque. Main attractions within walkable distance. Room small but clean. Good breakfast on the terrasse with a stunning view of the Blue Mosque and very nice staff. Good quality/price ratio.
The location of this hotel was perfect as it is situated right next to the main square. Main attractions are only a few mins walk away. The hotel itself is good and rooms are cleaned regularly, wifi is good too, staff didnt speak much english but enough to get by and were happy to help. Overall i would definatley recommend this place
Breakfast could have done with some fresh juices but cant really think of anything else and anyway the view for from the breakfast terrace was amazing
Great room Large breakfast selection Nice helpful staff Loved the restaurant and serving staff Perfect location to tourist sights
We stayed from 10th August to 14th August and we were a family of family of 5. The breakfast to start was good and adequate. The rooms were a bit small but were comfortable and cleaned regularly everyday. We stayed in rooms 101 and 103. 103 waa relatively bigger and i would reconmend that. The bathrooms were clean too with hot water coming through out. The staff was extremely helpful in guiding is where to go in Istanbul and the cheapest route to take etc. The restaurant downstairsbhad amazing food and good music playing.
This was one of the best hotel we have ever been! I strongly recommend it to any age group. Ideal location and walking distance to four main attractions Blue Mosque, Ayasofya, Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazar. Every staff member we encountered was friendly, pleasant, and helpful (Especially Unor).

The hotel and resteraunt.
No facilities to make tea/coffee in the room
The hotel is located in a very heart of Istanbul. The main attraction sights like Sultanahmet Mosque and Ayasofya are just withing a couple of minutes walking distance. The hotel itself is just after renovation - very cosy modern rooms. The turkish breakfast is served on the teracce with an amazing view is a great start of the day. And big thanks to front office staff Kazim and Onur for making our stay home like. They were very attentive and helpful throughout our entire stay. Highly recommend Spectra Hotel for all groups of travelers.
