4.7/5 Exceptional! (847 reviews)
The Hotel Sultania offers a high level of service in a boutique hotel environment. The staff, from check-in to the restaurants and health facilties, are friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable.
The rooms are very clean, in working order, and themed after wives of the Sultans of the Ottoman Empire. The rooms are on the smaller side but offer just enough room to be as comfortable as they are stylish. Well-lit, clean, soft beds, good linens. I enjoyed the room very much.
There is a spa, pool, sauna, hammam facilities on the premises that are clean and well attended. I used the hammam and massage services (Sultan package). The hammam offered was fairly simple, and the massage was of decent quality. Pricing was comparative to other services I saw offered across Istanbul. Covid precautions are prevalent throughout the property.
The hotel is well placed in the center of the old city, within easy walking distance of many historical sites, transportation, restaurants, bars, and shopping. The concierge is knowledgeable and extremely helpful for food and activity recommendations.
Overall, I felt like I had a home run with this property. Its placement, service, facilities, and pricing were extremely attractive. When I return to Istanbul in the future I would gladly stay here again, or when recommending Istanbul to others, I would strongly suggest Hotel Sultania.
