    The staff was friendly and spoke excellent English. The breakfast buffet was a sumptuous delight. The location was superb: a few moments' walk from Aya Sofie and very close to all the other main attractions: the Blue Mosque, the Turkish and Islamic art museum, the tram. The rooftop restaurant had a stunning view of an illuminated Ayasofia at night, and the friendly cafe next door had very good food at good prices.

    The elevator didn't go all the way to my room,and the last staircase was steep and narrow, but I have found this problem all over Europe, so this is not really a complaint.

    Superb

    We had a lovely mini-suite in what is a delightful, family-run boutique hotel in the heart of the historic Sultanhamet neighbourhood of Istanbul. It's perfect for going on foot round the cream of Istanbul historic and archaeological sites. The area currently suffers from a positive blight of coaches - especially tour coaches from ever more gargantuan cruise ships - but this only affects the arrival and departure timings to the hotel and will in time be sorted out by plans to pedestrianize part of the area. The hotel itself is located in a very quiet street and suffers little or no noise disturbance. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants location and unostentatious comfort.

    We were very fortunate to have been upgraded to a suite room with a private balcony, beautiful bathroom and bedroom. It was really a highlight of our trip to Turkey. We were completely relaxed and felt very well cared for. Thank you so much for a wonderful memory!

    Great aspect both outside and inside. Excellent position to visit the city. Excellent breakfast. Not really inexpensive but good value for the money. Very clean, good bathroom. Convenient limo to airport for 25 Euro.

    Superb

    Have stayed in this hotel three times and it is always a totally enjoyable experience. On our recent stay we were joined by our son and his wife who were made especially welcome - our rooms were of a high standard and fruit baskets were provided. The breakfasts are fantastic with a huge selection of foods; we dined twice in the rooftop restaurant which was good too and the view at evening and at night superb. Location is all one could wish for being close to all attractions in the Old city and a short walk from the water front activities. Staff are efficient and friendly, also knowledgeable about which attractions are open when. Not to be missed.

    Fabulous

    Generally pleasant and comfortable with helplful staff but see below

    Advice by Aziz to take a day tour as we had limited time was bad advice as time was wasted reaching the meeting point through awful traffic conditions. Staff should have known that it was the first day of school and that many cruise ships had arrived. Prices in euros were unhelpful and expensive for those starting with uk sterling. I felt that I was misled and almost cheated so despite the comfort and good location I would only recommend the hotel with some warnings.

    Perfect location and very friendly and helpful staff. You are in a walking distance from the most famous Instabul attractions and also from the tram stop . Beautiful hotel , very good breakfast , nice terrace on the top floor , with amazing view of S. Sophia. Rooms and bedrooms are clean.

    We hot a triple room , with beautiful view , the 3 bed is smaller than a normal ones, but very confortable anyway . Better to ask for a room not close to the elevator , sometimes you can hear the noise .

    Good

    Location, small hotel off the main noisy streets, cleanliness, decoration,good breakfast, polite staff

    Booked a de lux room for 3, but the bathroom did not have a extractor fan. This is un hygenic and we resorted to use the public toilets in the hotel, which incidentally had extractor fans! there was no rubbish bin in the room, just one small one in the bathroom. on speaking to a receptionist we had one placed in our room, only to be taken awy the next day!

    Superb

    Its position in sultanhamet was perfect. The outlook over an officeblock and carpark not so good. The breakfasts were very good

    Our room was just below the rooftop balcony and chairs being scraped along it kept us awake.

    Fabulous

    We enjoyed our stay at the Celal Sultan very much. It is easy to find by public transportation. The location very convenient for the most famous sight seeingh places in Instanbul. We appreciatet the quiet street very much, although the rooms are not sound proof to the neighbour room. Good recommondation for a City Trip

    We stayed in the suite with a beautiful view of the Haija Sofia from our balcony. The staff were very nice. The hotel manager met us at 3:00 am after 30 hours of travelling at the front door! He also arranged our flight from Istanbul to Izmir. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It was very central to all of the historic sites of Istanbul (Cistern, Blue Mosque, Haija Sophia, Spice Market, Grand Bazzar, Bosphorous Sea, old town, etc) Rgds Trace Bromhead
