    We loved Senatus hotel!! It was the best of our trip!!! The location is incredible, very near Aya Sofia and Blue Mosque in a cute street full of little restaurants and bars. The room is very well decorated and cosy, and the staff is incredible, specially Selcuk that helped us a lot! We definetly recommend it!!!

    There is free wi-fi internet (what is great) but in a hotel so good there should be a computer for the guests.

    Location ok, just at the busy street. Lots of people and things to see. Near by all the great historic locations.

    Small room for the money.

    The hotel is within walking distance to ALL the major Istanbul attractions. We arrived on Sunday, September 18, at 4:00pm and expressed our intention to visit the a Hamam, Cagdas volunteed to call and arranged the car from the Suleymaniye Hamam to pick us up right away. After our Turkish bath, the innkeeper knocked at our door and presented to us a birthday cake for my husband, (they took our passports when we checked in and learned from my husband's passport that it was his birthday), a very nice touch. My husband and I hired a private tour guide to visit Topkapi Palace and the Spice Market on Monday (the hotel is within a few minutes' walk to each of the attractions), then we walked back to our hotel and picked up our luggaged and were driven to our Cruise Ship. On Tuesday, our guide picked us up from port and we were driven to Haghia Sophia, we then walked to the Blue Mosque, the Underground Cistern, the Hippodrome and the Grand Bazaar. Our room was a tad small but clean, comfortable, quiet and well-designed, space was well utilized, Cagdas told us the Hotel had a gut renovation 2 years ago. Taxes and breakfast were included in the room rate, which in our opinion is excellent in value.

    The room was exactly as viewed in online pictures which was a pleasant surprise after other hotel stays where the room is generally compley different to the pictures used online

    This hotel is located right behind the main historical area including the Blue Mosque which made very easy for us to walk around and explore. I most liked the location and the friendly staff who were very helpful with us during our 6-night stay.

    There was a power cut at night but got fixed quickly. Another thing was one of the hotel guests next door who was smoking and we could smell it from our room while we were supposed to be given a non-smoking room.

    We liked everything about our stay here. Good value. Great location. Excellent breakfast, espresso included! Nice, stylish rooms and wonderful staff. What more could anyone ask for!

    We booked an economy double room without realising that these rooms are in the basement. Luckily, we were upgraded (only because we had booked a room with a double bed) as we certainly wouldn't have booked the room had we known it was in the basement. That said, the room was nice enough with a large window. The room we were moved to was an internal room - lovely but looking on to the back of another, not-so-nice, building.

    The Senatus is one of the finest small hotels in which I have ever stayed. The room and bath were very tastefully designed and decorated, and the bed was most comfortable. I also appreciated that the television in the room could access both CNN and Bloomberg News. I wish I could have stayed longer! I regret that I could not have the provided breakfast, as I had two very early transportation shuttles. The light dinner that I did have one evening was delicious. Ask for the baklava! Another thought: Staff members were most informative and helpful. One told me about the Airport Shuttle for 5 euros, which was a far cry from the 30 euros and the 40 lira I had previously paid for airport service.

    Location and the service. All personnel were very helpful and responsiveness to our needs. Also the hotel price included an outstanding breakfast.

    The basic room was small.

    Our entire experience at Senatus was wonderful. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a superior room at no charge. Our room was spotless and totally comfortable. The staff were attentive and charming and made our visit a pleasure. The hotel is centrally located in the old part of Istanbul and it is extremely easy to visit the major sights of the city. I cannot say enough good things about our experience in Istanbul and our stay at the Senatus hotel!

    Beds were good, location is brilliant. Sauna is very nice and personnel is very helpful.

    We were promised a bottle of wine & fruit, never got it. In the description it said we would have a jacuzzi, but was just a simple bath. So double check what you are going to get.
