    Location 8.66 /10

    The Celal Sultan is located in the area of Sultanahmet, right by the Great Cistern and near the old town's main historical sites. Allow 25 minutes for the transfer to the airport (11 miles).

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Like the communal areas, the 34 rooms are finely decorated. Wood dominates, from the floor to ceiling. They have air conditioning and double glazing. They have air-conditioning and satellite television ,a telephone with direct line, mini-bar and hairdryer. Most of the bathrooms have a shower cubicle. Some of the rooms on the first floor have a bathtub but, in these rooms, the buildings opposite block the view and make the room darker. Room service can provide sandwiches 24 hours a day.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Opened in 1996, the Hotel Celal Sultan is a set of two ancient Ottoman town houses renovated with taste. The façade is painted white and highlighted in grey. The interior decor is reminiscent of a cottage (wooden furniture, small rooms, exposed beams...). Next to the small lobby there is the hotel bar and its four bar stools. The top floor terrace has a nice view over the entrance to the Bosphorus, the Saint-Sophie Mosque and the Topkapi place, which are close by. In summer it is arranged with nice garden furniture so you can have a drink while enjoying the sun and the view.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Breakfast is served buffet-style in a country-style restaurant room. You can have your breakfast and dinner in another room, with more refined decor. The menu offers a choice of some twenty Turkish specialities. You can also choose from snack menu (salads, sandwiches, omelettes...).

    To know

    If you want a room with a view over the Saint-Sophie Mosque, request a standard De Luxe room.

      A set of four buildings from the 20s, the Merit Antique is a hotel full of history. It is also the most charming and comfortable place in the Laleli district, in the old town, a few tram stops from Sultanahmet.

      This is not a luxury hotel. Its location is perfect for discovering the town (on foot or by taking a tram or taxi).
      Maybe choose to have lunch and/or dinner away from the hotel, as the food services here are limited, without forgetting the bar, which isn't very attractive.

      This modest hotel has the advantage of being close to the centre of Istanbul. It is also located near Gülhane Park and the Galata Bridge, where groups of fishermen supply the restaurants below.
      It is an establishment that will suit those who do not have high expectations and are just looking for budget accommodation for their stay in Istanbul.

      • Value for money 6.79
      • Location 9.44

      The Golden Horn Sultanahmet is stylish but suffers from too much decor. Nevertheless, it does offer the considerable advantages of a very favourable location, fine panoramic views from its rooftop terrace, and a few ground floor guest rooms suitable for guests with reduced mobility.
      The standard rooms are fine for couples but if you are bringing your children you might find them a bit cramped. In this case, you'll be best off opting for rooms in the superior category, which are more spacious and more appropriately designed to the occasion.

    • Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water

      • Value for money 7.34
      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
