As college students, this was a welcome break from dull and dirty hostels and it was well worth the extra money to stay at the Hotel Sultania! The staff was very friendly and helpful -- they were happy to point us in the direction of a number of tourist sites and they also booked us for the tours we were interested in taking of Istanbul. The location is great and it is super close to all the sites in historic Istanbul. The beds are to-die-for comfortable and they even have a pillow menu. The breakfast was delicious and had a huge variety -- try the traditional pistachio/sesame paste called Halva and the breakfast buffet had the most beautiful and giant strawberries I have ever seen! The food at Cafe Sultania was very delicious. We did not get to dine at the rooftop Olive Restaurant, but we popped up there to check out the views, which are exquisite. Definitely have dinner at the Olive Restaurant so that you can enjoy Istanbul all lit up at night. The staff at Hotel Sultania was also happy to recommend a number of yummy restaurants nearby. The spa/hammam at the Hotel Sultania is also great and relaxing-- it is smaller and more private than most of the spas/hammams in Istanbul and the staff is very helpful. There was also a great variety of people staying at the Hotel Sultania from families to young professionals. Overall the quality of the Hotel Sultania was superb and we would definitely visit Istanbul again and stay at the Hotel Sultania!
