The Sphendon is a charming, old hotel in Istanbul. It’s walking distance to everything you need when exploring. The free breakfast was a nice added touch. The staff were great and we enjoyed our stay. If you have mobility issues - this is not the place for you as there is no elevator. The rooms are small but you get what you pay for. We would stay here again.

Nice place, quiet and close to all amnesties
I enjoyed staying at this hotel, the staff is very nice and helpful. When I got there I was tired and my room is not ready yet so they offered me the big family room for no extra charge. That was very nice. The location is very good it’s close to all the public places. I enjoyed staying here and will definitely come back. Thank you Hotel staff
