8/10 Very Good

The best feature of this property is a location. It is very conveniently tucked near the Blue Mosque and other attractions. Breakfast is very nice also. lots of choices. The room we stayed in was very small for 3 people, we barely had space for our suitcases. And 2 out of 3 receptionists did not speak very good english.

Very nice place to’ 8 min walk from the blue mosque 🕌. Beautiful view from the restaurant and breakfast all fresh. Highly recommended.
CARLETH, 4-night trip
Verified Expedia guest review

2/10 Poor

Our stay at Yilsam Sultanahmet Hotel was highly disappointing. Firstly, we were charged an additional fee for one person despite booking a room for three people. This unexpected extra charge left us dissatisfied from the start. Moreover, the state of cleanliness in the hotel was unacceptable. The bathroom had terrible mold, which raised concerns about the overall hygiene standards. To make matters worse, the cleaners themselves appeared unwell, coughing and sneezing in the room while attending to their duties. This created an unsafe and uncomfortable environment, especially for elderly individuals accompanying us. Additionally, the quality of the breakfast was extremely poor. Unfortunately, we ended up getting food poisoning. This incident further added to our disappointment and dissatisfaction with the hotel. Based on our experience, we cannot recommend Yilsam Sultanahmet Hotel. The issues with cleanliness, safety, and the quality of the meals were significant and overshadowed any positive aspects. We hope that the hotel management takes these concerns seriously and takes immediate steps to improve their services for future guests.
