About Sura Hagia Sophia Hotel, Istanbul

Contemporary 5-star hotel with breakfast available in Sultanahmet

Minutes to Hagia Sophia

The Sura Hagia Sophia Hotel is in Sultanahmet, the oldest area of Istanbul, and a 10-minute walk from the Grand Bazaar. The Hagia Sophia, with its 30-meter dome, is a 5-minute walk away, and to get you further afield, the T1 tram stops right outside the hotel.

Blue Mosque and Bazaar

Walk to the Sultanahmet "Blue" Mosque in about 5 minutes, with its 6 minarets, and then 10 minutes to the lavishly decorated Topkapı Palace, the historic seat of Ottoman emperors. For sensory overload, you're 10 minutes from the Grand Bazaar, a covered labyrinth of over 4,400 shops.

Breakfast, hammam

The breakfast buffet will get you ready for a day of taking in the sights, and for evening dining you can choose between Sura Moments, and Ottoman cuisine at the Deraliye Restaurant. A dip in the pool and a soak in the Turkish bath are the perfect way to rejuvenate. Amenities include bar/lounge, a children's pool, and a free children's club.

Free WiFi to keep connected

The 232 air-conditioned rooms and suites feature sleek, contemporary decor touched off with splashes of color, and some have garden or city views, and a separate bedroom. There's free WiFi to keep you connected, plus satellite TV to keep you entertained, free newspapers, a desk, and a minibar.

This is a perfectly good hotel, but it is not 5 star. There is a lot of wear in the rooms and it was not as clean as it could be. Be careful if you are a tourist, as there are 3 different hotels in the area that include "sofia" and cab drivers get easily confused.

We had a wonderful stay
Perfect location to all key tourist spots- Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkopica, Basilica Cistern...all in walking distance. Staffs are very helpful and generous, beyond our expectations. We arrived hotel around 10:00am due to our early arrival. The hotel accepted us and offered free breakfast which was extremely helpful after the 13-hour long travel. On the day of our departure at 5:30am, the staff packed breakfast for us- a sandwich, a box of fruit juice and an apple for each of us. In my frequent travels, both for business and leisure, this never happened before.
