Editorial review:

The four-star hotel Ottoman Imperial recently opened in what used to be the main youth hostel. After a major renovation, it serves up the classic Ottoman style, with Ottoman ceramics, textiles and traditional Turkish marbling. This is a comfortable hotel with great service. Some of the rooms offer Aya Sofya views (try and grab room 406). Amenities include an elevator, a lovely rear garden with restaurant and bar.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          The location is very convenient to walk to the places I wanted to visit.

          My room was facing the main road and the traffic was too noisy to sleep. There is no lift and the bathtub is too small.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Very quaint hotel is a superb location.

          We were originally put in non-renovated rooms on the bottom floor of the annex building. Not at all what I expected given the recommendations from Rick Steve's and Lonely Planet guide books. Very, very small rooms - very tiny, inaccessible bath/shower. We had an elderly person with us and she had great difficulty getting up/down stairs and could not use the bath/shower at all. We were moved the following day to more handicap accessible rooms which were much, much better. Not sure you should ever rent out those bottom floor rooms if you want to keep your good reputation.

        • Couple
          9.4

          Excellent location and very nice hotel stuff. Nice decorated suite.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          It was a very child friendly hotel, with excellent staff and a good, well run restaurant.

          The breakfast room was small and so there was a wait for a table on some mornings. This would not be a problem in the summer as there is an outdoor eating area.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Extremely pleasant staff, very helpful. Fntastic view, on one side, over Hagia Sofia

          1st night we were allocated the most tiny back room - hardly room even to unpack our suitcases and a high window overlooking a communal balcony - at foot level. We asked for an up-grade and one was then available the next day since it was the busy Easter period.

        • Family with children
          5.0

          That it was within easy reach of the main tourist sights and the Grand Bazaar.

          What we didn't like about the hotel was that the room was below ground with no natural daylight. It was small for three beds.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The location of the hotel and the helpful staff

          Lack of fresh tea and coffee at breakfast

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Staff are friendly, breakfast is great, right in front of Ayasofia.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Very impressed. It's location couldn't be better, and I thought it was great value for money (we went in winter). You get a superb breakast, served to a backdrop of old Istanbul. A really excellent base for a city break.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Great location right next to the hagia Sofia, nice clean rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast room.

          The breakfast could have had a bit more variety (eg cereals) but was still pretty decent.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          The location is excellent, most of the interesting places are within walking distance. The hotel staff were very helpful & polite. The rooms were cleaned regularly every AM, our room was always clean, neat & tidy everytime we returned to hotel after the trips.

        • Single
          9.6

          The room was very clean and the hotel staffs are very kind.

        • Single
          6.6

          Location was great, personnel very friendly and helpful, hotel was clean

          tiny rooms, basic breakfast, shower flooding bathroom and next day not working at all, restaurant food not so good and expensive

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Location,hotel staff,atmosphere

          should improve level of cleaning for bathrooms,should add more satellite English channels.

        • Couple
          10.0

          The hotel is in a great location, right by the Ayasophya, with wonderful views. As a base for exploring Istanbul it is ideal. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming, and it was a pleasure to stay there.
