Excellent hotel!from JanWarsaw
We've traveled a lot, so we know what good hotels are all about. This one has all the things that are essential for a good stay:
nice, clean rooms; v. rich breakfast, professional service, v. competative price.
Try this hotel - you will really enjoy it!
We loved the Hotel Sapphire. Margaret M., Alicante, Spain.from MargaAlicante
The charming young owner/manager and his staff showed us a spontaneous hospitality which we are unlikely to forget. No request seemed to be too much trouble for them, and everything was done with a smile.
We chose the hotel mainly for its location, right in the midst of the old town on the European side (as opposed to the Asian side across the Bosphorous - a boat ride over is highly recommended) and we weren't disappointed. It couldn't have been better placed to reach all the points of interest we visitors go to Istanbul to see! A short walk of about 10 minutes took us to the Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sofia, Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, and many other sites too numerous to mention.
An important detail is the quiet street in which it is set, an oasis of peace in this bustling city, yet it is surrounded by restaurants and shops and a stone's throw from the wonderful tram service.
The hotel rooms, if not oversized, in keeping with the architecture, have recently been renovated and are comfortable and tastefully decorated. The bathrooms are new and fresh with wonderful showers. The hotel is clean and well cared for.
Most visitors will find a breakfast to suit their needs from the wide variety available.

The room was spacious,clean and very comfortable,very vell presented with quality interiors and with all the useful facilities as well.I must also point out that all the staff were very polite,friendly and most important very helpful.
I was able to use my laptop in anywhere in this fantastic hotel,because of wireless internet facilitiy, which was great.
Another good thing was beatufilly served open buffet breakfast,I strongly recommend to try turkish style breakfast to those who wants to visit this magnificent city.

really enjoy Sapphire Hotel - Istanbulfrom didi17Strasbourg
The quality rate is excellent. To my mind the rooms are a little bit to small, but they are comfortable and equiped with all the european standards. The breakfast is really good and offers variety.
I have to add that the staff is very professionnal. All the employees do their best to satisfy customers, especialy Ümit and Deniz (reception).
Excellent Hotel with nice Staff and great Locationfrom Annette_Eugeen
The staff is very friendly and helpful, happy to advise on any issues (sightseeing tours, nice restaurants, transport, etc.) We were glad to meet Harun, Umit, Vural and Jano and hope to see them again when we visit Istanbul next time.
The rooms are clean and well-equipped (tea/coffee making facilities, mini bar, free wireless internet, safe, hairdryer, etc). The breakfast is excellent, worth to get up on time not to miss it. If you fancy trying the famous turkish bath you are more than welcome to do so in the hotel.
Anytime we happen to visit Istanbul again, we will definitely stay at Sappire Hotel.
Top Local Tips for Istanbul
Shopping and transportation Allways try to do a bargain (don't accept the first price) if you buy from bazar or other shops (except the western one). I've went to a leather shop,for example, where yo can negociate with them. It looks like a western one (with price tags,clean, large and so on) but you can negociate the price (I've managed to go for 50% from the starting price).There are a lot of shops like this. Be aware of the taxi (some drivers try to cheat you).Be aware, in bazar, of the pocket thieves. Istanbul worth a try (a trip).
Food Try to find places where the locals eat as the quality of the food is better and it will cost you less.
House Café, Ortaköy When you just cannot eat any more kebabs, this place is a breath of fresh air! It's quite a trek, but worth it. We had lunch at this restaurant on the terrace and it was fabulous! Lovely place Ortaköy - you can locate the area from a Bosphorous boat tour.
