Expert review of Seven Hills Hotel
One of the older boutique hotels in the Sultanahmet area, the Seven Hills is showing a bit of wear around the edges, but I think it’s still a hospitable and comfortable place well-situated for sight-seeing.
The Seven Hills is located in a tourist-heavy district full of hotels, restaurants, and carpet shops tucked away on cobblestone streets behind the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and close to all of the Old City’s major sights.
The comfortable, Ottoman-styled rooms all have wood floors and furniture, delicate flower patterns on the ceiling, and big beds and bathtubs. Upgrading to one of the five suites gets you a Jacuzzi tub and some nice extra touches: I liked the sitting area in the Marmara Suite, with an upholstered red couch looking out at the view, and the big terrace and little breakfast table in the Presidential Suite. The latter also has a pull-out sofa bed, which makes it a good option for families. All but the standard rooms should have a view of either the sights or the sea.
Like some other parts of the hotel, the lobby, with its big gold-trimmed mirror, seems a bit dark and dated.
The rooftop Seven Hills Seafood Restaurant serves fish and rakı, but the real draw is the spectacular view, which I suggest enjoying over a sunset drink.
The hotel has a small sauna for guests to use.
I found the staff to be exceptionally welcoming and helpful; the friendly, casual service is a major point in the hotel’s favour.
Generally leisure travellers from English-speaking countries, particularly the United States, Canada, and England.
