Sphendon Hotel, Istanbul
Great location with a wonderful view
The place was amazing, rooms are clean, breakfast was included, the location was in a quite neighborhood, five minutes away from Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Top kapi. There are many restaurants, ATM machine, and convenient stores nearby. Best of all staff went above and beyond hotel service our house keeper provided us with recommendations on which tourist sites to visit and where to go for food based on our taste and budget, and how to get around Istanbul using the train, cab and Uber. He even told us how much we should pay so that no one can take advantage of us. We would stay at this location again.

Hotel is very clean and in quiet area, closed to Main Attraction. Staff is very nice and friendly, especially Ahmad. We have (2) rooms, but we stayed there only 2 nights, not enough to explore Istanbul. We should be back there and would consider to stay at this place again. We will also consider to let hotel's staff to plan our activities when we get there.

Great location and outstanding service in Istanbul
This is an older facility, and one must climb steps to get to the rooms, but the location and the service couldn't have been better. All the major attractions in Istanbul were within walking distance. A great value for the money, and we highly recommend a visit to Turkey itself.

My name is Nishat.... I stayed at Sphendon for about 4 days in total. From the start to end my stay at Sphendon was very good. Hotel staff Yunus and Ahmed had been very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and recommend people to stay here. Rooms are decent not very big and bathrooms are elegant. Recommended for stay
