    Het hotel is schoon en zeer mooi, goede ligging alle bezienswaardigheden dichtbij. Het personeel ... super aardig: Selçuk (recept) Ufuk ( blondy) Habib ... Ramin (spreekt nederlands, handig hoor) ik kom zeker terug in het Senauts Hotel ...groetjes Diana & Annemarie 11 mei t/m 14 mei 2010

    Misschien geen klacht maar een opmerking, in de badkamer zijn maar twee haakjes voor de badjassen, dus wat meer haakjes voor je kleding.

    Room was well designed, spacious, comfy bed. tea making facilities,spotlessly clean, timber floors, nice marble bathroom with bath and shower combined, plenty of cupboard space. Breakast was continental and served in downstairs streetside restaurant by pleasant staff. Location of hotel was near Blue Mosque and you could hear calls to prayer.Lots of cafes/restaurants in same street.

    This hotel was recommended by the Irish Times travel supplement. It lived up to it's expectation. Very friendly, clean and a great breakfast.

    The bedroom was a bit small in so far as there was very little drawer space but this was made up for by the sixe of the shower!

    Great location; really nice quiet and cool temperature rooms; good modern fit out; helpful and friendly staff; not too expensive; excellent car service to and from airport at reasonable price. If you're holidaying in Istanbul you should consider this.

    Only slightly negative comment is the breakfast could have been better with more choice.

    Ideally located within the Sultanahmet district. Senatus is a genuine boutique hotel with tasefully decorated rooms. Staff is very cooperative and are always happy to give advice, local knowledge helps alot so share your plan with them when you leave and they'll give you some useful tips. Breakfast at Palatam is outstanding (we stayed in 7 different hotels across Turkey and theirs was by far the best!). We also got a complimentary updrade to a deluxe room upon check in because our flight got late and we reached the hotel after midnight. A very pleasant experience all in all.

    The best thing about Senatus Hotel is, without a doubt, the staff, They are without a single exception intelligent, kind and hospitable. We came to look forward to our interactions with them each day. In addition, the hotel's location was great. Guests can walk to Topkapi; the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia. The spice Bazaar is near by and the Grand Bazaar is on the tram line that passes near by. The tram is user-friendly. There is a little shopping district within walking distance from the hotel where one can purchase nice gifts. The hotel's decor was beautiful; the beds comfortable; and the breakfast (especially the cappicino) was wonderful. As an added bonus, the hairdryer has an outlet that allows one to use and/or recharge appliances which use 110 (American) current.

    In the standard room the bathroom was too small for two people to occupy comfortably. If this will bother you, choose the upgraded room which has a larger bathroom.

    It is a charming boutique hotel, bang in the middle of the Sultanahmet area, surrounded by superb restaurants and within walking distance of most of the tourist sites. The staff were excellent and well informed, and advised us on getting around. We got superb service and were made to feel at home.I Would stay here again, and recommend it to other travellers.

    If you are reading this and are looking for a hotel in old Istanbul then look no further, This place is brilliant. very stylish, great decor, perfect room layout, excellent bath and shower, the most comfortable bed ever, Lots of small great touches to, complimentary tea and coffee, water. The staff are really top notch and have a great sense of humour. This is a true high class boutique hotel with excellent staff- trust me stay here.

    This is the most perfect hotel i have ever stayed in. The one thing i learnt is that if there is something at breakfast not on display - just ask and it will appear.

    Having chosen to visit Istanbul to visit the great sites such as the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace we wanted to stay within walking distance and in an area that had historical character so we chose on line the hotel Senatus which is in Sultanamnet. It was perfect, only 5 minutes walk from all major sites, surrounded by restuarants and bars. Our superior room was very spacious with lots of wardrobe space, a great bathroom with a jaccuzi bath, wide screen television, very comfortable king size bed and good modern decor. There was a Turkish style breakfast included, lots of cheeses, eggs, cold meats, salads and fruit with warm rolls. When the hotel received our booking, they immediately sent us an email offering to arrange a transfer from the airport which was great as some of the little streets in the area are quite difficult to find and we also had them arrange our return transfer. We only ate lunch at the hotel in between our site seeing, which was very pleasant and the hotel staff reccommended and booked other restuarants within walking distance for us for dinner. The street that the hotel is in is lined with all sorts of tourist restaurants and bars and I suppose that if you have the windows open it could be noisy, however the the windows were double glazed and there was very good air conditioning. All in all a very happy experience and we would have no problem in going back again.

    The rooms are very clean, new and modern. Although small, the bathroom was state of the art with very nice showers.

    The size of our room was on the small side.

    Very good

    Hotel and room decor was clean and good quality. Restaurant food quality was good for reasonable price. Sauna facility was brand new and very good with ability to watch TV whilst still in sauna!

    reception is on 2nd floor, meaning that our room on the first floor was atually in the basement. This meant that the room had a feeling of artifical light. Room was well furnished but of irregular shape making getting through the front door a bit of a squeeze!
