    Location 7.37 /10

    The Romance is in Sirkeci area on the slope of the hill that descends from the Topkapi Palace right down to the Marmara sea. You are 5 minutes' walk from the palace and mosques and 25 minutes by taxi from the airport which is 11 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 63 rooms are big and clean, even though the carpet needs changing. They have air-conditioning and satellite television, a telephone with direct line, and a small minibar. The double glazing reduces the street noise. Only the rooms on the 5th floor have a balcony. The large bathroom has a bath or shower, toilet and hair dryer. Room service means you can order a sandwich or snack after 11 pm.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Built in 1996 and renovated in 1998, the Romance is a modern 5-storey building. As its name suggests, the hotel has a romantic appearance. In the style of old Ottoman residences, its facade is painted pink. The reception opens out onto a large lobby furnished with wicker armchairs and glass tables. The hotel's small bar, which is charmingly decorated with terracotta tiling, is at the far end of this lobby.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The hotel's unique restaurant serves breakfast buffets (standard). For the other meals, there are two set menus (fish and Turkish specialities) and an a la carte menu of international dishes. The a la carte menu offers a choice of 11 starters, 11 main courses, 4 soups and 6 desserts. It is good to have it there in case you do not have the opportunity to eat elsewhere.

    To know

    During summer, the hotel opens its terrace bar on the roof. This is the best way to make the most of the "happy hours" available to the hotel's residents from 4 pm to 6 pm (50% reduction on all drinks).

      The Yasmak Sultan is a nice hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet. In summer there is a beautiful panoramic terrace with a great view of Topkapi, the Saint-Sophie Mosque, and the Bosphorus.

      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.

      • 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.
