“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

This was our second time to Best Point Hotel. It was even better than the first time, although the first time was also very gratifying. Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace which has a view of the Blue Mosque on one side and the Marmara Sea on the other - beautiful scenery. The rooftop terrace is glassed in but has a small outdoor seating area on one end facing the Blue Mosque. The breakfast is plentiful with a lot of variety and it includes complimentary fresh squeezed orange juice and a choice of hot eggs which comes straight from the kitchen.

Complimentary afternoon coffee/tea is available on the ground level and there is seating in the courtyard between the two sections of the hotel as well as inside. There is also a complimentary happy hour.

The area where the hotel is located is peaceful and safe. The hotel is only one block from a street of restaurants with outdoor seating, and another block to the Arasta Bazaar. A few minutes more and you are at the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia and the tram. The manager, Fatih, took us to see his new suites hotel which is just a few minutes walk. It has reception, and the rooms had a lovely decor and were good sized rooms. Ideal for families and couples.

The Best Point staff are friendly, courteous, and attentive. All in all it was a very joyful stay and we will stay in this hotel whenever we visit Istanbul.

We spent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel. Perfect location in Sultanahmet, all major historical sights are within 5-10 minutes walk. Freebies (welcome drinks, afternoon - evening snacks, daily complimentary water) are great. Staff is very helpful (only minus - the breakfast staff should smile a bit more) Rooftop breakfast room with good selection and great view. The room was big enough and clean. Best Point is the perfect example how should be a hotel well managed.

We recently stayed at the Best Point Hotel for a 5 day trip to Istanbul. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. From helping me find a pharmacy, recommending and arranging restaurants for dinner, and bringing tea and Turkish coffee up to the room on request, they are wonderful. We booked the room with the hamam and I could barely get my husband out of there. The hotel is literally 5 minutes walk from just about any of the historical sites in Sultanahmet as well as a small bazaar. The view from breakfast is incredible - sea view or Blue Mosque, take your pick! (though be aware it's a climb up stairs to the 5th floor). Room was quite clean and refreshed daily. It may have been slightly more expensive than other hotels in the area, but it is definitely worth it!

Room Tip: Highly recommend the room with the hamam - the heat is wonderful after all the walking around Sultan...

My husband and I spent four nights at Best Point on a short break in Istanbul. We chose the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and it was an excellent choice. The owner Fatih and all the staff were very warm, hospitable and helpful. As we arrived Fatih sat down with us and drew up an itinerary, complete with restaurant suggestions, for our entire stay. The tours he recommended were on the whole excellent and gave us a great overview of the city's history in the limited time we had. Doing the main sites as part of a tour turned out to be a good choice as we avoided the massive queues that way. When we had to move hotels for our last night, since they were fully booked, they went out of their way to ensure our transit to the next hotel was seamless.

The hotel is wonderfully located in Sultanahmet in the old city, within walking distance of the main attractions and the areas is brimming with restaurants and shops. Just walking around the area is a great way to soak in the atmosphere. Our superior room was spacious, with a very comfortable bed and an amazing selection of hand made soaps, which is a nice change from the usual generic hotel toiletries. A highlight for us was the large selection of free evening snacks and drinks on offer every day, a great welcome after a day of sightseeing and a good way to meet other hotel guests. Breakfast on the terrace with the Bosphorus on one side and the blue mosque on the other was a wonderful way to start the day. Two free bottles of water was also provided every day in the room, which was very useful for busy tourists.

We always prefer to stay in local hotels on our travels and avoid the big hotel chains. If that is your preference also, we can't recommend Best Point highly enough. A very well run hotel and reasonably priced too; the pride they take in providing service to customers is clear.

Room Tip: The superior room with Haman is full of character. Get it if you can.

A botique hotel, tastefully furnished, more importantly clean. Fantastic view of Blue Mosque and the sea from roof terrace. Free extra treats, snacks and tea/coffee. Stayed for only one night and enjoyed Istanbul from a wonderful location. Need a slightly larger budget to stay a few days more (would've loved that)!

Hard to beat in terms of location, within walking distance of all wonderful mosques and other attractions in Sultanahmet. Rooms are good, could do with some minor maintenance. Great service with nice free extras like the 5pm mezze and wine. The staff is always smiling and helpful. Recommended.
