“Once again...Excellent stay!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Simply perfect! I returned to Istanbul to spend vacations with my friends and had the same excellent experience as my last trip in September. Last time we stayed at the Diamond building. Now we stayed at the Gold building. The suite was more spacious. Housekeeping and Customer Service was excellent!

Special thanks to Mustafa and Joy for making our stay an incredible one.

We stayed here for a week over the New Year period for 130E per night. Our family of five squeezed into a standard suite – one bedroom, one sofa bed in the lounge/kitchen area and a single fold out bed which we chose to put in the hallway.
Pros
Helpful staff and good location. We think it is better to stay in the Sultanahmet area rather than near Taksim Square as most of the main sites are in the old city. This saves time on travel and allows a return home during day to drop off purchases etc.
It is easy and much cheaper to get the tram and train to the airport compared to a taxi. The nearest tram stop is short but steep walk uphill to Divan Yolu Caddesi.
Short mostly uphill walk to Hippodrome, lots of restaurants around. Quiet area of town. Good bathroom. There is a café downstairs but we did not need it. Breakfast seemed expensive when cheap street food is readily available.
Cons
The kitchen was ill equipped in terms of utensils/crockery/cutlery but did have a microwave and four hot plates. It was hard to cook a decent meal but nice to be able to make breakfast and tea at will. The walls are extremely thin with no hope of sleeping through the 6.15am prayer call. We could hear movement from upstairs clearly.

I stayed twice. The only downsides were that the first room was across the street from a hostel that had a barking dog. The second room did not have hot water; after no one could figure it out, I was moved to another room. This is why I ranked this four dots instead of five.
Overall, it was a very good experience and I would return. These are called suites but not regular room sized. However, they did have a kitchen sink, coffee and tea pots, burners and a small refrigerator.
Sultanahmet is spread among four buildings which have been beatifully restored. Bed is very comfortable and the overall facilities are very nice. There is no breakfast included, but that is fine with me because I paid only $40 a night and there were good places nearby.
Location is excellent for tourist attractions. The people who work there were helpful. Again, if I head to Istanbul again, I would not thing twice about staying there again.

Travelled here in the off-season. I booked this place online after favorable reviews. The only downside was that there was a slight funk in the bathroom. This was not an issue as we were able to keep the odor contained with the door. And its generally a non issue, as it is Europe, and really if you are traveling any city around Europe you need to be okay with slightly suspect smells. Enough of that though. the staff were uber helpful, the place was a short walk to most of the attractions, yet not on too busy of a street so we could go to normal priced kebab shops and bakeries. Had my laundry done by a lady down the street. And easy (relatively) parking ( 5 lira/day) within a block. We had a balcony and a view over the sea. It was beautiful.

I work as a hotel manager which means my expectations about hotel service when I'm on vacations are high. My friends and I stayed at Sultanahmet Suites Diamond Building and the experience was magnificent! We were a total of 4 and stayed comfortably in the standard suite for 9 nights. I want to start mentioning that the staff was very friendly and helpful. Maid provided clean and fresh towels every day. The bathroom was always impecable same as bed sheets. Kitchennette includes microwave, small stove, mini fridge, and sink.

The hotel is located upon walking distance from the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Ayasofya Museum, Topkapi Palace, and Basilica Cistern, among others. If you are staying for many nights you may buy groceries at a nearby mini market. Also there are many restaurants around. Our favorite restaurant was BB'Q House (american name but totally turkish) located in the same street as the Basilica Cistern.

Overall experice...Fabuleux! We are planning to return to Istanbul again in February and definitely staying at Sultanahmet Suites.
