Score from 8 reviews Exceptional
Very good and helpful service, room cleaning every day, changing towels, adding shampoo etc. Breakfast was enough - eggs, sausages, bread, olives, cucumber and tomato, 3 different kinds of local cheese, fresh applejuice, free cofee any time you want. Absolutely no problems whatsoever, we had a very nice stay!
Location. Close to almost all the landmarks in Istanbul. Staff. Wi-fi very good
Nothing to complain
We had four wonderful days at this hotel. The owner and staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was rich and tasty and the hotel is situated 5 minutes from the historic town center. We can recommend this hotel to anyone. Shermon and Irma Martis.
Thanks a lot to Mehmed and all the staff for awesome service, something which is rarely seen these days. They pay attention to every detail, anticipate your whishes and make every effort to make your feel at home. We were staying there in the beginning of November.
hospitality. International minding of the owner.
Location. It was our first time in Istanbul, so we wanted to stay in the monumental, and yes the touristy area of Istanbul. Yet the hotel issituated in a slightly less busy street than those around Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The owner, Mehmed, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful without being invasive or pushy. Just the right tone. They even managed to give us a decent breakfast before 7 am on the day of departure. on the other days breakfast was delicious. The hotel has eveything you need, and is clean and comfortable. Tea and coffe avaiable around the clock. Very good value for money.
The rooms are quite small and we would have prefered a chest of drawers instead of the spare bed which we did not need. But we used that for some of our clothes. You do wake up with the prayer calls from the Blue Mosque which is just around the corner. But that is part of Istanbul and after a few nights and a wonderful hamam experience, I even slept through it!
Excellent location, nice clean street with several good restaurants, 200m from Blue Mosque. The hotel is clean and quiet considering the central location. The staff is very friendly and helpful. warm welcome and cstomized care
Perfect location, good sized room, very comfy bed, good breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff, recommended
Mehmet, probably the owner, who is always ready to give genuine local advice. This helped a lot to make the best of our three days of work plus leisure. Very friendly and efficient staff. Good location within the old city.
hospitality of staff, nothing too much trouble.above and beyond the normal courtesies. location couldnt be better for exploring the old town.hotel clean comfortable excellent breakfast spread,free coffee machine and water a nice touch
Staff is *very* kind, they even made us find a bottle of red wine and two glasses in the room when they knew it was our anniversary
Breakfast was rich and very fresh, just lacked something sweet. Very good anyway.
Staff and location were excellent
Beds: you feel the spiral metal Safety box: old style with a large key lock Laundry; lack freshness and need special attention Breakfast: basics and served for each table individually.
The Sultan Mehmed was a lovely family run hotel. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful in every way. The breakfast was first class and beautifully presented in the most delightful garden area at the rear of the hotel. It's in a great location, near to the Blue Mosque and ideally situated for exploring Istanbul. I would certainly recommend the hotel to all my friends.
The only negative comment I can make is that we were in a room facing the road, and the noise from the traffic kept us awake.
Breakfast area was different, comfortable. Room clean.
Location was perfect. Modern rooms. Owner - Mehmed - always at hand for helpful tips and advice. All staff were very helpful, friendly and responsive. Lovely breakfast.
The performing staff, the location and the excellent service.
The service was outstanding, Mehmed and his staff are exceptionally responsive and attempt to provide an exceptional tourist experience. The one day it rained and the staff sent up an umbrella for me.
Efficient airport shuttle, friendly and helpful staff, fresh modern rooms, outdoor cafe
The staff were amazing! They helped us located a rental car, sim card etc and on leaving gave a hamper of food for me as they knew I was pregnant and didn't want me to be hungry during the car ride. Had great conversations with the staff members and they were extremely warm and friendly! Great place to stay, would definitely recommend it!
The hotel is beautiful and close to everything in a fine location.The owner Mehmet is very healpful and realy wants to make you feel welcome to his city (not only the hotel). The hotel staff is also exelent. The room is money worth. Breakfast very good. We recoment it to every one !!
Turkish hospitality at it's best!
My husband and I stayed here in July and loved it. It's a small, quiet hotel only 5 minutes away from the blue mosque and other tourist attractions. Mehmet and his team were helpful and attentive. Mehmed gave us tips on what to see and where to go and eat etc. He wasn't pushy in any way. The breakfast was superb. You get eggs, cheese, olives, tomatoes, fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juice. The servings are very generous. The room was clean, bed comfortable, wifi working properly. I really loved the hotel. If I go back to Istanbul, I'll definitely stay there.
If I try real hard to find something negative...the room was a little small, but we only needed it to sleep. So it wasn't a problem at all.
I stayed at the Sultan Mehmed Hotel with my wife and children (youngest 10 years and eldest 26 years) for 4 days and it was one of the best hotels we've visited. The rooms are spacious enough and very clean, beds are comfortable (even the extra child bed) with great housekeeping services. We also enjoyed the home-style breakfast and the coffee and Turkish delights around the clock. It's a walking distance from Aya Sofia, Topkapi, the Blue Mosque, and other attractions. There are so many very delicious local restaurants around the hotel, as well as other services such as supermarkets and laundry (they have a seamstress which is a plus.) As for the owner and staff, they are very friendly, extremely helpful, and just pleasant to be around. I highly recommend this boutique hotel, whether it's a couple or a big family (like ours).
The location and staff was excellent! They make you feel like you are part of the family.
The staffs and receptionists are very helpful. We enjoyed staying this hotel with spacious room.
The room facing roadside is quite noisy because of traffic from early in the morning.
