This was our first trip to Turkey and as expected, we were not sure which hotel to choose or where to stay. We stayed the first two nights at Sunrise Hotel due to an availability conflict at our primary hotel, and was pleasantly surprised by the service we received right away. When we got in, our room was not ready (we were a wee bit early) Ercan- the owner was very gracious and offered us complimentary drinks outside the sidewalk cafe, while we waited for our room.
The room we had was a triple room and was slightly on the small side but that's expected in Sultanhamet. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Ercan and his staff catered to our every whim with such grace and willingness. When it was time to check into our other hotel, we didn't want to leave. If our other hotel was not already paid in full, we would have definitely stayed.
The location was the best! central, safe, and close to most of the main attractions, i.e Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia.
The hotel has a lovely roof top terrace that bodes well for a nice relaxing breakfast or lunch. The hotel restaurant is cozy and the food is great. We even got to experience, some authentic Turkish cuisine at Ercan's close friend's restaurant, called Turkistan Asevi. Great folks!
We will definitely be staying there again.
