Istanbul is well known the world over as a perfect marriage between Europe & Asia, East & West as well as the ultra-modern and the ancient.

This marriage is perfectly reflected in Sultan Suites at Golden Horn. Located on the European side of Istanbul, and originally built in 1895, this fully newly renovated sea view apartment is located on the Golden Horn surrounded by the ancient walls of Istanbul dating back to the Byzantine era of 532AD. One of the most famous buildings of the Istanbul skyline, the Galata tower can be viewed from all floors of this historical building. Next door is the famous Greek Fener Patriarchy Church.

Brand new fully furnished apartment on one floor is available for rent. The apartment have been decorated to an extremely high standard and feature a 'hamam style' bathroom & shower, 1 large main bedroom with a double bed, a fully appliance kitchen and a lounge with queen sofa bed.

All the walls and ceilings feature fresco paintings by famous local artist with no two rooms or apartments decorated in the same style or color scheme. The decorations and exclusive furniture has been especially selected not only for comfort, but also to accurately reflect the history and time period of the Ottoman Empire of this unique building.

Great location right in the middle of all the cultural and historical sites, with fabulous restaurants down the street of this local neighborhood without the hustle of the touristic scene. All of Istanbul is at your reach by foot, ferry boats, buses and taxis.

Our Sultan Suites Stay

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I had a wonderful 10 night stay at the beautiful Sultan Suites. Nafiye, the owner, was the perfect hostess! After a long flight from the States and what felt like an even longer wait at passport control, she greeted us at the apartment with wine, cheese and fruit.
Our main apartment was on the top floor and overlooked the Golden Horn from the living room and balcony. My daughter had her own smaller but equally fabulous apartment on the first floor. Our apartments were outfitted in Ottoman style and were warm, comfortable and very elegant. The woodworking, crystal chandeliers and intricate paintings are lovely. Bedrooms are situated on a quiet back street facing the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate (not to be missed). There was plenty of cupboard space to unpack everything and stow the luggage. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the washer/dryer was a big plus for our long stay.
We loved the wonderful Haman baths. What is not mentioned in the apartment description is that there are also rain showers! I also need to mention the beautiful Turkish towels and wonderful soaps that Nafiye supplied.
The location was perfect for us. You are within walking distance of the main old city sites, but far enough away so that you can escape the din. There is a wonderful waterfront walk to the well-known historical attractions. You can also walk street-side, but be advised that you will need to walk in the street, at times. Crossing some streets can be an adventure.
There are restaurants close by and one of Atatürk’s favorite spots is right around the corner. Be sure to have breakfast on the rooftop. There is also a cozy restaurant on the bottom floor of the apartment building with a good breakfast and gracious owners.
Thanks to Nafiye, we were able to enjoy an experience beyond the usual tourist spots and are very grateful for her generosity. You can always stay in a hotel, or tag along with a tour group, but the opportunity to become immersed in local culture and have a unique and authentic experience is not to be missed. We can’t wait to return.

Character, luxury and a warm personal touch!

  • 5 of 5
We felt welcome from the moment we stepped out of the taxi - though it was a little difficult to locate. We were in phone contact - so it wasn't a problem. Sultan Suites is an appropriate name - just seeing the photos here takes me back to our lovely stay. it was a luxurious space with a handy kitchen. A special word about the hamam/bathroom - it felt as if we were in the harem of the Topkapi palace - beautiful Katuhya work in the handcrafted mosaic and a wonderful shower.
Our host was away and their daughter was there to welcome us - she gave us plenty of great ideas about what to do, where to eat and where to find the best baklava and even took us around for a short drive warning us that the streets would be unrecognisable in the day! We understood what she meant as we enjoyed the 20 minute walk into the old city along the water. Just lovely - great atmosphere. And we were pleased we chose an area a little removed from Sultanahmet to get a better feel for this fabulous city.
Our landlady came to see us as we left very early in the morning - we were touched and want to say that we really appreciate the superb hospitality! Hope to be back. Highly recommend.

Dream-Come-True Honeymoon and New Year's Eve

Dream-Come-True Honeymoon and New Year's Eve
  • 5 of 5
At first we thought we were looking at a scale model -- a doll house -- when we saw the pictures. Looked too ornate and elegant and authentically Turkish for the price. We had seen all the center-of-everything apartments with their futons and cluttered kitchens and wanted to believe this brand-new mini-palace was real. SO GLAD WE DID! Nafiye and her brother should have their apartment building designated as a historic preservation site. The department of tourism should be promoting them as keepers of Turkish tradition and exemplars of hospitality. The climate-controlled suites are decorated in luxurious style for both comfort and elegance. The welcome is warm and genuine. The generosity is unparalleled (bottle of wine, extra help with any question or favor). And there is a mable-clad hammam (Turkish bath) in the apartment with linens, toiletries and accessories ready to use. So it's not on Istiqlal Street. Now that I've been to Istiqlal Street, I know I'd never want to sleep around there! This waterside apartment building is a $5-8 taxi ride (or take the bus or walk 20 minutes) to the hustle bustle, and if you're into history, walk two minutes to the global seat of Christianity as it was first developed -- in the Eastern tradition -- St. George's. We were on honeymoon but also on a budget. We are thrilled we found Sultan Suites. So very special.

Lovely, quiet, charming stay

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed my stay in this gracious Ottoman-style, refurbished flat. I chose the 3rd floor walk-up for the balcony viewing the Golden Horn; the spiraling pine stairs and brilliant cascading chandeliers were another highlight to my coming and going each day. The washer/dryer in the nicely-appointed kitchenette proved essential; the mattress and bedding were comfortable and the draperies and colors in the rooms were sumptuous. I slept well, liked the overhead shower in the beautifully tiled hamam-style bathroom, and the towels were thick- such a treat! Hostess Nafiye's guidance for my shopping and entertainment goals within the city, and for more European-attuned eateries in outlying neighborhoods. (I was Yankee enough to miss familiar menu items after a while). Taxis were easy to hail--just a block away. A new, interesting artist co-op gallery hosted two openings I wandered into in the evenings, just down the street.

Beautifully appointed apartments

  • 5 of 5
Perfect mix of old and modern. All modern conveniences in the apt. Everything that we could think of was provided for us. Apt location was perfect....quiet but very close to the main historical and shopping centres of Istanbul. Hosts were excellent, providing first class local knowledge of both the immediate vicinity and of Istanbul as a whole as well as maintaining the apts spotlessly. Overall, a very highly recommended place to stay that offers everything the discerning traveller could possibly desire.
