      • Family with children
        10.0

        All the Staff of the Hotel were very helpful and especially Denize, the breakfast buffet was amazing and rich of delicious foods, and the most important thing is the location of the hotel, it's near the tramway station and just 5 minutes by walk to the Blue Mosk, Aya Sofia, and Topkapi Palace. I really recommend other people to stay at this hotel, although the size of the room is small.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Very hospitable team. Hotel is situated in pedestrian area in old city, within walking distance from main places of interest. Complete with pool and sauna. Lovely breakfast buffet. We enjoyed our stay very much!

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        a well located,very quiet, comfortable, very friendly hotel with all the usual ammenities plus tea making facilities and bathroom fan

        I could not use my cheap Turkish Telecard and the pillows were very large and lumpy.... I believe the linen is to be upgraded in the near future

      • Family with children
        9.6

        We really enjoyed the location and especially the helpfulness and good humor of the staff. We highly recommend this hotel.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        The friendliness of the staff, they welcomed you back each time you returned from a trip.

        Small bath towels. Needs a anti-slip mat in bath, as it is also a shower area.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Location could not have been better. We were very happy with our stay. While on our 2 week tour of Turkey we stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels but enjoyed the Hotel Sapphire the most. It felt like being at home.

      • Single
        10.0

        I really appreciate comfort and location of the hotel ... and above all the feeling of being at home due to the kindness of the hotel staff.

      • Family with children
        10.0

        The staff at this Hotel are exceptional, very welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and they really made our stay special. The Hotel is very clean and major attractions such as the Blue Mosque are just a few minutes walk away. The Hotel has a nice swimming pool in the basement which is well maintained and wonderful views of the city from the roof terrace. I highly recommend this Hotel and feel it is very good value.

        There was nothing I could find fault with.

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        The very friendly and helpful staff. Large comfortable lounge with free internet access. Wide ranging buffet breakfast included in the room rate. The location of the hotel relative to the main tourist attractions which were within easy walking distance. Mustn't forget the grey parrot in reception - it kept us amused.

        More information on hotel facilities could have been provided in the room, eg there was no information on telephone usage or swimming pool and only a brief mention of the fact that their restaurant was also open for evening meals.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        The staff really went out of their way to be genuinely helpful in little things as well as the usual services that one would expect from a boutique hotel. They helped me to check the weather of my next destination on their computer at the front desk and even offered my wife some hot tea while she was waiting at the lobby for the airport shuttle pick up. What a team of wonderful staff! I wouldn't stay anywhere else but the Sapphire when I return to Istanbul again. It's right from the bottom of my heart! A++

        Just one thing. The street in front of the hotel is out of bounds to any vehicular traffic. Hence, if one has many heavy suitcases, it is a hassle to lug them from/to the street about half a block away where the shuttle or taxi is waiting. Moreover, it isn't easy to wheel the suitcases since the street is cobble-stoned and not flat.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        I really enjoyed to stay this hotel, especially staffs are really nice and helpful, I want to stay here again if I have any chance to visit :)

        Room is quiet small but still clean and ok.

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        Ideally located, outstanding value for money + comfort for this category (beds, airco, shower), excellent and varied breakfast buffet, kind staff and even nice check-out gift. We definitely recommend this hotel for a very enjoyable city trip.

      • Family with children
        10.0

        The hotel staff were very organized and helpful even before arriving at the hotel. They were friendly, energetic and attentive. The hotel provided great value for money and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I believe the hotel had one of the best locations to access Istanbul's sites. We had a wonderful experience.
