“A lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

As everyone comments the hotel was well located for some of the major sights, just a short walk to the heart of Sultanahmet, with plenty of cafe's and restaurants in the surrounding area.
The hotel itself is relatively small and has a nice quaint atmosphere about it. The staff were lovely which made you feel instantly welcome, and they would go out of their way assist you. I loved Istanbul, 4 nights there just wasn't enough to explore a vast city with so much history, i will definitely return, hopefully soon and would definitely stay at the Historia again.

Room Tip: I would recommend paying a little bit more for a sea view and balcony.

Set in the heart of the old city amongst all the main attractions, location is not the only plus this great little hotel has to offer. The staff go above and beyond to be helpful and are always ready with a smile. An example; after an exhausting bus journey from Bulgaria, I arrived just before 7am. They welcomed me with tea in the lobby and breakfast at 7.30, although check-in is not until 13.30, they rushed to get my room ready for me and I was fast asleep in a clean, comfortable and spacious room by 10.30am. After waking fairly late in the day, they then went out to get me take-out delivered to my room as room-service. You really couldn't ask for more. As a lone traveller, I was always made to feel welcome by the other guests and the breakfast room was chatty with who had seen what the day before. All the main attractions are within walking distance avoiding the need for expensive taxi rides. A real mix of nationalities stay at this hotel, so you are bound to bump into some interesting people. I couldn't recommend it more 10/10.

Very nice and beautiful hotel located near to Sultanahmet Mosque. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast delicious. We stayed there 4 days in December and would be happy to come back again. Istanbul is a wonderful city, we've already been there many times and it's one of the best hotels that we stayed in. Thanks to Mutlu and all of the staff.
