I stayed at Spectra years ago with friends. I remember the location was awesome. Close to all touristic attractions in Istanbul, close to the streetcar, and close to good restaurants including fast-food.

Breakfast was so so. Room size was decent. But a great view on the rooftop of Topkapi Palace and the Marmara sea.

I stayed there to spend a couple of days in Istanbul with some friends. This hotel has the best location you could ask for if you are visiting the historic part of the city. Walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagya Sofia and Topkapi.

Hotel staff is very friendly and efficient, they will go above and beyond to please you.

I highly recommend it.

Situated in Sultanahmet, next to the blue mosque, it has the best location in that area of town. Small, but good rooms,good wifi, friendly staff and good breakfast on the topfloor with a lovely seaview.

Very friendly staff. The mosque is next to the blue mosque where i was able to offer my fajr prayers.
The room i had was small, but it was very clean with quality fixture and fittings.
The bed was very comfortable.
Breakfast is buffet style, so you can eat as much as you like. Some may find the breakfast range limited, but it has both hot and cold options cereals, meats, eggs etc,

The hotel also has free wifi which is essential if you do not have roaming set on your mobile.

Room Tip: the small room is quite small, so try for a larger room for greater comfort,

The best location The best food The best staff The best price The best place to stay if you want to have easy access to all site seeing at walking distance or short trip with tram.Staff is very friendly and helpful,they pick us up from Airport which solve all the hassle to get there with no extra cost,they give us a all the information about what to see,when is best time to be there,and what is going to cost us,we brought some local fresh fruit and brought them back to otel,instead of saying we are not allowed bring food in,they washed and serve that fruit next to our cold beer,rooms were daily getting cleaned,breakfast was unbelievable fulfilling,chef lady was there serving and explaining which is what and ingredients.Unbeliveble!!!!!! Going there from all the way from Australia was well worth it.Now when I talk about Turkey I will talk about SPECTRA HOTEL as well.Highly recommended.Keep up the great work guys
