Boutique Saint Sophia - Istanbul

Boutique Saint Sophia Hotel - Four nights


Perfect location for exploring Istanbul and all the main tourist attractions. You are steps away from Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya).

Upon entering the hotel you are warmly welcomed and check-in is a breeze. We were pleasantly surprised with the rose petals and fruit platter in our room to wish us a happy anniversary.

The rooms are clean, modern and spacious, we stayed in a Grand deluxe room with a small balcony to enjoy the view.

You have the most magical view of the Hagia Sophia, a UNESCO world heritage site. Which after 85 years as a museum, in 2020 it was redesignated as a mosque. Originally a church from 537-1453.

With Bvlgari amenities, and heavenly linen you are guaranteed to sleep peacefully, we loved listening to call to prayer at dawn, truly provides you with the full experience.

Breakfast is served each morning downstairs in the restaurant or on the terrace, eggs are cooked to your preference, accompanied by a bread basket, cheese and salad. They definitely make sure you have the energy to get through your day of exploring.

The terrace is a great spot to relax and hide away from the craziness of the city, it is tucked away above the street and as the hotel is located in a cobblestone alleyway with foot traffic only, you can enjoy your downtime.

A beautiful boutique hotel in the old city, you won't be disappointed with your stay in Istanbul.
