4/10 Fair

Good location, but that's about it
Great location which puts it in walking distance to all of Istanbul's old town. Room is old, shower drain was blocked and wasn't fixed, found a dead spider on the bed. There was no view from the window. When asked about changing room, or potential upgrade, I was asked to pay the difference even though there was multiple rooms available and I am a gold member. Breakfast wasn't good and there was no menu to choose from although there are items you can order from the kitchen. Tried to sell us expensive tours to free attractions.

8/10 Very good

Great staff, food and wifi not so much
The staff was so very attentive and helpful and the room large and luxurious. The front desk suggested an excellent dinner cruise. The wifi was very spotty and intermittent and the restaurant really struggled to serve palatable dishes. Fortunately there are good dining choices in the direction of the Blue Mosque.

10/10 Exceptional

Great place
This is a really good hotel. Its location right behind the Blue Mosque is sterling. I have one reservation. Three floors and no elevator. That got tiring after awhile for this 81 year old. That said, I'd choose it again, but stipulate first floor.

In the middle of Istanbul
I have been to Istanbul a number of time. This was the first time staying at the the Sultanahmet Palace Hotel. Not only is it within minutes walking from all major places to see and close to the tram, the service and friendliness of the staff was fantastic. Highly recommended.
