TravelPod Member ReviewsModern Sultan Hotel Istanbul
This hotel has an excellent location - right in the center of very many main Istanbul attractions.
The building is old, which adds certain sharm to your stay, and the hotel room had all necessary things, and was quiet at night.
Overall - very modest, but a good value for money.

Our room is also small, with windows on one wall. Our windows overlook the tiny street and across from the Armenian mosque, with it's minaret loudspeakers. ...
... a working mosque and visitors are not allowed to disturb the prayer sessions.
The architecture is extraordinary as is the mosaic work and stained glass windows; photos simply cannot do it justice. The domed ceilings are a feat of engineering and have survived many an earthquake. It is so-called (the Blue Mosque) because the tiles inside lining the walls and domes are blue and white.
We have been in Istanbul a week today. There is so much more to see and ...
... the day was a tour of the great Greek Orthodox Church, the Ecumenical Patriarch. We arrived a bit behind schedule, but it worked out on our favor because we had the honor of attending an authentic Greek Orthodox service. This church was the first church before the Hagia Sophia and is the church of Saint George. As Rev. Deacon Nephon Tsimalis explained to us after the service, there are three different parts of the church. All are each ...
