Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for one night at White House Hotel Istanbul a stone’s throw from haghia Sophia and Blue Mosque. We had to join a food tour at karakoy area and simply we took the tramway from the sultanaahmet station which is just steps away from the hotel. The welcome and availability on the part of harun, together with all the staff was excellent. Very clean room, equipped with all comforts, right room temperature, comfortable bed and no noise during the night. This hotel is one of the best hotel we chose in our hotel because they tread us like a royal

Hotel's Favourite
This was our first time visiting Istanbul. Upon check-in, the staff was beyond friendly, and was eager to please, throughout the entire stay, everyone was very friendly, and never made us feel that we were inconveniencing them by asking questions. During check-in, they offered refreshments and made the check-in process easy. They also gave us local good luck charms that was quite sweet. They also decorated our room for our first visit as a couple. The room was not necessarily large, but was decent size and great value for the money. The shower was amazing, that water pressure is no joke! They have a rooftop terrace that is open 24/7 with a coffee machine that can make anything from espresso to a cappuccino. They also offer a breakfast buffet that, typically in hotels are quite poor quality/generic, however, this one was very fresh, and most products were local. As a well, seasoned traveler, when I see a number one rated hotel, I usually prepare ourselves to get bombarded by the team, to leave a five star review, however, they only mentioned it once! Upon check out, then, sure that we were beyond happy, and they even contacted our local transfer a company as they were running late and offer to find other alternatives, if need be. We even met the owner and general manager, who gave us a sincere thank you, and offered handshake. You don’t typically find that a lot nowadays where general managers don’t interact with Airgas. Overall, I would say this is a great value and a hidden gem. A great location with walkable to just about anything in the old town District. It is about an hour drive from the new Istanbul airport, but that is not the locations fault. 10 out of 10 recommend

My stay at the White House Hotel in Istanbul was fantastic! The rooms were beautiful, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, always available for any questions. The central location near top attractions added to the overall experience during my four-day stay. Not to mention, the breakfast buffet was delicious, making my time at the hotel even more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and look forward to staying there again!

Really great spot. It’s super close to the most recognizable tourist destinations. The staff is super friendly and always willing to accommodate guests. They even upgraded my room free of charge. I will probably be staying here again if I return to the city.
