Hagia Sophia back gate is 10m away so location is pretty faultless. All staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Check in, ice, keeping wine in their fridge, holding luggage, taxi assistance to airport, just kept helping the entire time. Mould on shower curtain was pretty...More
WELCOME TO YOUR HOME IN ISTANBUL!
This is what you will hear from ERHAN and MEHMET the moment you enter the lobby of this great hotel and restaurant. What more could anyone ask for than clean and comfortable rooms, a generous breakfast (that is included...More
Staff are fantastic, very welcoming and helpful. Hotel is clean and practical. Close to trams. Easy access to get around Istanbul. Amazing food/resturants all around.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of Ottoman Hotel Imperial on Tripadvisor.

Dear Pat O,
Thank you for the lovely review and coming back to stay with us.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed so many aspects of the hotel. From our convenient location, beautifully appointed room, our breakfast and of course our friendly staff.
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale.

retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

I actually walked from Taksim sq back to the hotel one day, just for fun. Using offline maps and a compass it took me about an hour and a half, but should be a bit less if you don't wander too much. The public transit system is more than adequate so this shouldn't be a problem. Also the hotel is close to alot of the main attractions (the grand bazar in particular) so it's a better trade off than if you went for a hotel closer to the square
