My (now) fiancee and I traveled to Istanbul during the middle of January of 2010 and I have to say that the staff and management of this hotel went out of their way to make our trip unforgettable. They were helpful and accommodating at every turn. The gentleman at the front desk could tell we were young "love birds" and...

We booked this hotel for 12/31 to 1/8. When I arrived on New Year's Eve, they had overbooked, so they had to put me up at one of their other hotels down the street. Of course, I was not happy about that, BUT, they did make it up to me by upgrading us to the honeymoon suite for the rest...

Lovely hotel within walking distance of the Topkapi museum, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Rooms were spacious, clean and well-decorated. Staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast buffet could have been a bit more varied, but there was still a fair amount to choose from.

We stayed 4 nights at this little gem. The room was elegant, the staff gracious and accommodating, and the location was perfect for seeing the sights. A full breakfast was included, and many restaurants nearby of evening dining. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

We stayed at the Regency Suites for 4 nights over the Eid holiday in September with 2 young children. The hotel staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The room was spottlesly clean and had extra beds for both our children and the location is perfect for visiting the main sights of Istanbul. However, a couple of warnings. First, a suite...

My husband and I recently returned from our first visit to Istanbul where we stayed at the Best Western Regency Suites. We are Gold Crown Club members because we have found during our travels in the United States and Europe that Best Western is usually best in value and service. The Regency Suites Hotel is located in Sultanahmet, the old...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Istanbul Art De Vivre!Located at he heart of Istanbul between Europe and Asia, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa commands an extensive view of a relatively small area that has nonetheless witnessed 2000 years of the history of some of the richest civilisations humanity has ever known: Ancient, Greece the Roman Empire, The Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire!It is only a few steps from the Blue Mosque, Saint Sophie and Topkapi Palace. The hotel, a lovely mansion built in 1905, is a listed historic monument today. The elegance of its origin is still amply visible in the neo-classical moulding on the facade and the solid wood or beige Bursa granite floors. Numerous details and features in the house bear witness to a world of such sophistication that its sultans are portrayed holding a flower.The hotel's rugs, like the motifs on the walls, seem to have stepped straight out of the Topkapi Palace.As century old traditions require, the hammam of the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa features a suite of three rooms with different functions: hot room, warm room and cool room.The hotel is equally dedicated to maintaining state-of-the-art international hotel standards, which rather than detracting from its historic past, leave its guests free to savour and appreciate this heritage.In this way, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa distils the quintessence of Istanbul's distinctive lifestyle, particularly from its 16 suites:the dome of the Blue Mosque surrounded by six slender minarets, the monotonous chant of the muezzin, the enchanting hush that reigns over the city in the morning, the sweetly scented Topkapi Park, the view of Bosphorous or the Marmara Sea on which the Prince's Islands seem almost to float or its mouth-watering exotic cuisine, etc. The justly dubbed 'Golden Horn', which the hotel overlooks, sumptuously sums up the inexhaustible wealth of this matchless location. ... more   less
