The staff is very friendly, and helpful. The location is great, right at the heart of the historical section in Istanbul.
The walls in the room is a bit thin, so noises can easily go through.
We have just returned from our second stay at the Sapphire. The hotel is conveient for all of the sights and the staff were excellent.
Staff very helpfull , breakfast excellent , location superb
excellent staff and management, really attentive and great hotel and location
Hotel Sapphire is a nice hotel with an excellent location. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are somewhat on the smaller side, but clean and with all the necessary facilities. Good value for money
We liked the parrot best !!
We were given a very warm welcome which started prior to the trip with a welcoming email. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us a small souvenir gift when we left which we thought was a nice touch.
The hotel is situated on a street with several popular restaurants so it was a bit noisy at night, and would not have been suitable for a disabled person as there was no vehicle access direct to the door.
The extremely helpful and courteous attitude of the staff; the breakfast spread and the cleanliness around. We have already lined up several of our relations and friends to visit Istanbul and stay at this hotel.
Excellent location for visiting city , very good and professional staff,good confort and good services. If you need to enter in Istanbul atmosphere this is the hotel to chose !
The staff is very helpful and indeed they make you feel very welcome. The rooms are very nice and kept always clean. We felt very comfortable and the breakfast had such variety. The food was always good. The tram is just one minute away from the hotel - gulhane stop. we recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to enjoy his holiday in istanbul.
Please be careful if you are going to use the phone with an international card cos they charge you just the same. We had this problem and we had to pay an extra fee for doing an international call, even though we werent adviced by the staff when asked.
Had a much better time at Hotel Sapphire than Prince Hotel. Would recommend and stay there next time I visit Istanbul. Hotel staff was extremely kind and helpful.
The location was great, walking distance to all the main tourist sites. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were great.
The staff were very friendly and polite beyond reproach, within a .very clean environment, with a typical turkish ambience
excellent location - many major attractions are within walking distance, easily commuted by tram to more distant places of interest; plenty of cafés and restaurants nearby; helpful staff; and funny parrot at the lobby ;-)
pleasantly suprised with the arrival and departure gifts, staff were fluent in english and well informed about the city tourist attractions.
pool times too short, should be 24/7 and the pool-water had our eyes burning , tearing and shut for hours! honestly.
