“A real find....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

We stayed at the Celal Sultan for 5 or 6 nights in June, 2011 and it was a great little hotel.....location couldn't have been better for exploring all the sights in the Sultanhamet, and, from there, it was easy to take trams to other areas of the city. We upgraded to a superior room when we made our reservation, and that turned out to be a wise decision as our room was actually a little suite with an adjoining sitting area....it was in the back or side of the hotel and quiet; we didn't care if we had a view! The room was all done in white and kept very clean. Breakfasts were generous and staff couldn't have been nicer. We had dinner one evening on their rooftop restaurant and it was nicely prepared.....however, there are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance that proved to be more memorable. We used travel advisor as our guide to dining and that worked very well for us.. One caveat.....we were with two other couples who did not upgrade their rooms and they were not very pleased. We would definitely stay at the Celal Sultan again. It was lovely to step off a plane after a long overseas flight and be greeted by a driver who took us directly to the hotel......gratis. A nice and much appreciated perk.

Room Tip: Consider upgrading to a superior room

Great location, great rooms and the staff was very helpfull. ask the staff everything you don't know about this country: prices of taxis (the príce is not fixed; hours to dinner - at 9pm is already to late, etc...)
We will recomend this hotel!

Room Tip: Chosse a corner room with view and ask for a copple bed!

for once a hotel that really lives up to the reviews, it is as per their website within easy walking distance of all the major sites around Sultanhamet. The hotel itself was really "cosy", staff were all without exception friendly and helpfull, i felt that the help was genuine and the staff really did care about us having a good time in Istanbul. On arrival my son and i were upgraded from a std room which we had booked to a superior room, one word, excellent, cleanliness and housekeeping were impecable. To sum up it really feels your are at home from the moment you check in, next trip to Istanbul we will be rebooking. Only negative review but not related to the hotel was a reccomendation by a concierge to visit the FENER fish restaurant....it had no atmosphere, 1950s european decor, poor selection of fish on the menu (which was not cooked or presented that well) and without doubt was the most expensive meal we ate in Istanbul- avoid.

Room Tip: cannot really comment here as we only stayed on the second floor, but if this room was an indication...

The breakfast, rooms, location and price for a stay made this hotel a great deal. However the service provided by the staff made Celal Sultan feel like a home away from home. Concerige Cihan's recommendations for great place to eat was always perfect. I look froward to going back.
