Very Comfortable Flight Layover
When we noticed the 14 hour difference overnight between our plane landing in Istanbul and our transfer flight leaving the city, we decided to get a hotel. After all, international travel can be harsh on the body. Boutique Saint Sophia had excellent reviews and we found the pictures charming. We also took note that it was close to Hagia Sophia Museum as well as Basilica Cistern. Had we more energy, we would have visited both locations. However, as it stands - we were admittedly exhausted. We arrived in the middle of the night and the front desk clerk was warm and friendly. He chatted with my other half about sports. We found the suite to be large by Europe standards and well stocked. We specifically asked for and received tooth brushes and tooth paste. We slept very comfortably in the king sized bed. I took a bath in the jet equipped tub and my other half used the adjacent shower. Even though I slept in too late for the free breakfast, it still was arranged for me. The fruit and breads were fresh. Checkout was easy. As we left in the morning, we noticed many restaurants and places to shop within walking distance. We plan to return in the future and take advantage of this great location as well. Specifically to Americans, it was a strange experience but safe. Someone from the hotel walked us to our private car in the morning.

Great Hotel in an AMAZING Location
First and foremost this hotel is one of the best values I have ever seen. The Boutique Saint Sophia is a charming hotel, located in an amazing location, has a great staff and has great rates. When I was reading other reviews of this hotel I assumed statements like “can see the Hagia Sofia from my window” or “location is incredible” were exaggerations-- they are not. This hotel is so close to the main sights in Istanbul that it is almost beyond belief. Literally right outside the door is the Hagia Sofia, two minutes away is the Blue Mosque and three minutes away is the Topkapi Palace. Even the Four Seasons has a tough time boasting to be as accessible. However, this proximity does come with a drawback-- namely getting there with cabs can sometimes be tricky. We had one driver refuse to drive into the old town and dropped us off a quarter mile away. It appears the rules are a bit odd for taxis in the area so just be aware. With regards to the hotel itself, I have no complaints. It appears to have been recently renovated and the rooms are crisp, clean and modern. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay and both were quite charming. One was an attic room with a sloped roof but good layout; the other was a more conventional room with lots of windows. The service is very helpful and accommodating. They had no trouble getting us taxis for our early morning flights (one required leaving the hotel at 330 am). In terms of value, this hotel cannot be beat.

Boutique Saint Sophia
Perfect location, we stayed there on a layover twice and were steps away from most major sights. Most of the staff was very courteous and friendly, offering advice and directions when requested. Rooms are very nice, shower was delightful stocked with premium amenities. On our second stay we were upgraded to a nicer room, complete with balcony and a jacuzzi. Overall, a 10/10, would definitely stay there again!

Fab location for Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Cistern
Fantastic location. Very attentive and helpful staff. Excellent English spoken by everyone. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to wonderful Istanbul. One caution: the hotel is in a restricted area where most taxis either can't go or refuse to go, means you have to walk 100 yds with luggage (not so much fun in the rain!)

St Sophia near major sites but beware taxi drivers
The only issue we had in the hotel was on out first night when someone- probably in a hallway outside rooms was cigarette smoking and the smoke seeped into our room. The management investigated but could not find anyone but offered to move us to another room the next night (we accepted) but could not do so thefirst night as the hotel was fully booked. Management was also very helpful in explaining how to use tram and metro to get to European airport when we left as well as other things to do in the area and in booking a dinner reservation for us one night. We flew into Asian airport and bus to Taksim square where we were ripped of by taxi driver who lied and sai b/c of traffick he would drop us 2 minute walk to hotel when it actually took us an hour to find hotel and trams to there
