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.

    The staff were courteous and attentive. The concierge service was excellent!

    I thought the pubic washroom off the lobby was quite below standards as far as being maintained.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is in a nice building, with an attractive terrace restaurant and separate breakfast room. The staff is excellent: high proportion of English speakers, and all whom we met were eager to be helpful. For example, one evening when the restaurant was full they set up a dining facility for five of us on the front veranda of the hotel. Its location is perfect for tourism: next to the Aya Sofia, a short walk from most other attractions in the old town, near the tram line, etc. The only problem is that some taxi drivers didn't know how to find or get up the narrow street, and left us off some (usually short) distance from the hotel itself. Still, that gave us a chance to find interesting shops, restaurants, and the friendly and healthy cats that are fed by the generous locals.

    One part of the hotel has no elevator service, so visitors with mobility problems should make sure their room is in the other part or on the ground floor. The location is not so good if you have business in the newer, commercial centre of the city. Otherwise, there are no problems with the hotel itself, only with some taxi drivers (see above). We enjoyed staying there, would stay there again, and recommend it highly.
