“Could not be better”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This was our second visit to Istanbul and I was keen to find a great hotel base in the Sultanahmet at a reasonable price for a 6 night stay. Looking at the hotel site I thought the room with a view of the Blue Mosque looked good and it exceeded my expectations.

The room is spacious including a verandah with lounge, arm chairs and coffee table. Relax out there while enjoying the beautiful Blue Mosque view. A huge double bed, TV (unused) and enormous bathroom with somewhat mysterious hamam section complete the comfort.

Breakfast alone deserves a paragraph if not an essay. On the top floor (one flight above our room) an incredible buffet breakfast awaits. I am not generally a fan of buffets but this one is special. I could not begin to list the treats – sweet and savoury. A team of at least 3 staff await any guest needs. Freshly squeezed orange juice is supplied and an omelette will be cooked at your request. Generally we just ate from the enormous range already provided. And the view, on one side the Bosphorus and on the other the Blue Mosque. So many choices.

The hotel arranged free pick up for us from Ataturk Airport and for a long term stay also returned us there in great style. They also offered a good discount for a cash room payment.

The staff were professional, efficient and very friendly. They serve free cakes and meze at times though we didn’t use this. When the world cup was on, the night staff gave us free beer while we watched the match in the foyer. Loved this place – a great meld of comfort, efficiency and Turkish good cheer in a perfect location.

Room Tip: Get the room with the Blue Mosque view though I am sure all the rooms are lovely.

Our stay was excellent. Location is unbeatable, only five minutes walking to Blue Mosque. Staff was looking always for our best experience, we really appreciate that (Umit, Gokhan, Serhan and the rest of the staff took care of every detail). Rooms are clean and very comfortable. The view from the terrace is amazing.

The location is so close to main site seeing in Istanbul such as Blue mosque. There is a convenience store just beside the hotel which open 24/7. The hotel staffs are so kindly and friendly. They serve FREE wine,tea, coffee, Turkish tapas and cakes from 4:30 pm. The room is comfortable classic style with mini bar. They also offer shuttle bus / taxi €25 from their hotel to the airport if you need it. The view from terrace is brilliant and breakfast are so nice!
On the way to go to this hotel from tram there is a slope and this hotel doesn't have elevator so if you can do not bring a heavy bag :-P

We had a very memorable stay in Istanbul. From our arrival via the hotel shuttle until departure, everything ran like clock work. We were welcomed with drinks and Baklava and our family room was surprisingly spacious for four. We loved the Haman in our room. The view from the breakfast Terrace are breathtaking and the breakfast is also really good with a wide selection of fresh food. The hotel is in the lower part of a lively street and no street noises interrupted our sleep. This hotel comes highly recommended and we will most definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Hamam

We really enjoyed staying in this hotel. The service was very good, very helpful front desk staff.

The roof terrace is the stand-out feature. It is open 24 hours a day and is overlooking the blue mosque, so you can bring your own drinks and enjoy a nightcap here before bed.

If you like cake, you will love the Best Point hotel breakfast, which always had no less than 3 cakes available. I developed an unhealthy addiction to the sultan's syrup cake. THere are other savoury foods available too which were lovely.

Great location next to Arista Bazaar and a very quick walk to tourist attractions.

Highly recommended!

We stayed at best point hotel only for two nights, and we couldn't have asked for better hospitality.
The hotel is situated at a 10 minute walk from all the touristy places like the blue mosque, topkapi palace, etc.
One of the best things about this hotel? - Undoubtedly, their breakfast!! They serve you the best breakfast which includes eggs, toasts, fresh fruits, yogurt, home made cakes and pastries, cereal, nuts, freshly squeezed orange juice...and so much more!
If i ever visit Istanbul again, i'm definitely staying here!!

Not to forget, the staff is very helpful. They'll tell you everything that you'd wana know about the place!!

Keep up the good work guys!!
