Boutique hotel that lived up to its name
A wonderful hotel outfitted with modern and stylish amenities in a very old building. This boutique hotel was everything I imagined. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was cosy and bathroom was sparkling in marble and chrome finishes. The bed and mattress were very comfortable. Literally next door to the Hagia Sophia, and within walking distance to most tourist sites in Sultanahmet, this hotel provided a nice and centralized location, in a safe and well-lit part of the neighborhood. The hotel also provided a pick-up and drop-off service to the airport, which was a convenient and worry-free way to get there at almost midnight. I would stay here again.

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.

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!
