Very convenient and comfortable hotel.
I stayed at the Ottoman Imperial for a weekend visit to Istanbul. The hotel is conveniently located near major points of interest in the old part of Istanbul. I enjoyed my stay there. The room was very spacious and comfortable. I did not use the dining room in the evening, but breakfast was very good, with a nice selection of foods. The hotel overall is comfortable and in good condition, though a bit worn around the edges, and generally clean though not spotlessly so. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend it.

Ottoman Hotel Imperial - Special Class, Istanbul
elegant boutique hotel not just physically!
The hotel staff in this hotel overall provided attentive and excellent service from the point of check in, to the restaurant, to luggage handling, to assisting to print documents, calling a taxi, lending pairs of hands to help with shopping....the list goes on. I had to check out of the hotel at 6 am and I was so touched when a bag of breakfast items had been specially packed for me. This is a very elegant boutique hotel not just physically, but in every sense. I wish to mention Mr Rustem, who was very outstanding in his service, going all out of the way to assist my team of 6 and me during our stay,
