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.

Solid 3 Star Hotel
Traveling from the U.S., this hotel is a solid 3 stars. The location is great and the room was clean, however everything was generally mediocre. For instance, the WiFi barely worked, there was a large separation in the bathroom door from the wall affording minimal privacy, our door lock didn't work, there was a giant column in the middle of our room, and the shower was made of plastic. The staff also wasn't terribly friendly to us. Not a bad place to stay, but it looks much nicer online.

Great location!!!
Hotel has great location and breakfast is good. However, the internet is really slow and did not work most of the time during my four night stay. Also, the A/C does not cool enough.
