“excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

We recently spent three nights at the Best Point hotel, and found it an excellent choice. The location is perfect for walking to the historical buildings, and is very quiet indeed. The room was well appointed and spotlessly clean, and the staff were very helpful and eager to please. The owner/manager Fatih, was very informative, and helped us to make best use of the short time we had there. The breakfast was delicious, served on the roof terrace with good views of the Sea of Marmora. We found the hotel to be of good value, and would certainly recommend it to other visitors.

Room Tip: choose a room on the garden side to be sure of a really quiet night

This great little hotel fulfilled what we wanted to start our Istanbul & Turkey trip. We had a flight change and moved our stay up a night--no problem. Picking us up at airport late and with little notice--no problem. Very clean, all staff extremely friendly and helpful. Loved the location; on the edge of the best part of Sultanahmet area so quieter at night, but still a couple of minutes walk to anything. One thing some would find off-putting but we enjoyed was the entertainment provided by the local cats who hang out across the street. Made our evening (complementary) wine and backgammon ritual outside even better than just people watching.

Our stay in Best Point Hotel was the ice on the cake for an amazing trip to Istanbul. This cozy little hotel and its professional, friendly and helpful staff made our trip even more satisfying. Perfectly located (5 min from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia), the roof-top views we enjoyed while having the excellent buffet breakfast are something to remember. Rooms were very clean and complementary snacks, beverages, fruit and appetizers were always available. The surroundings have plenty of life (shops, bar, restaurants, etc) within a 5 to 10min walk. Totally recommended!!.

Best Point hotel is the perfect location for a tourist trip to Istanbul; close to The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sophia and with a roof top view of Bosphorus. The room we had was super clean, all the staff were super friendly, pro-actively helpful and the breakfast buffet was sinfully good. On top of that they gave free mezze and wine every evening and free cakes.So all in all, this is a glorious little place, however, it did bother us that they tried to sell us orange juice at the breakfast table and that all the services they could help us with (airport transfer, Bosphorus cruise) were all very over-priced and easy to get much cheaper elsewhere - having said that, they were never pushy about it and if (or rather when) we go back to Istanbul we will definitely consider staying here again. Great place, you won't regreat it.

The hotel is right in the heart of Sultanahmet yet far enough from all the traffic and crowd to avoid the noises. It is a small B&B, with wonderful staff and breakfast is served on the rooftop which has a nice view of the Blue Mosque. Beds are comfortable, bathroom has all the amenities, clean but like most hotels in the area, the rooms are quite small and do not have a lift, which means a lot of stairs. The also offer guests free tea all day long and some simple mezze in the evening.
A downside, if you are not fit, is that given its location, you will have to walk uphill towards the Blue Mosque & Hagia Sofya area. May not be suitable for everyone. The good point is that coming back after a day of sightseeing is that it is all walking downhill, so not so bad.
Staff are very attentive and aim to please. On one occasion, while we were having breakfast, it was a rainy day and a bit cold. Seeing a guest feeling cold, they brought a shawl for her.

We stayed in Best Point for a few days, we wanted a small hotel that is clean and in perfect location, walking distance from all attractions, we did not care about having any facilities, so this one was just perfect. The staff are very kind and helful, location is fantastic, breakfast on teh terrace overlooking the sea on one side and teh blue mosque on the other.They also helped us in planning our days... :)

Room Tip: Rooms are very small, just a place to sleep, don't come with big expectations!
