“Great stay at the Osmanhan Hotel, friendly, clean, informative and perfect location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

We chose the hotel based on reading TripAdvisor and found it to be a perfect choice for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful via email from day one when we inquired about availability. We exchanged emails and they gave me information that was very handy as we planned the trip to Turkey.
When we arrived, all very welcoming, in particular Ilknur helped us with restaurant and choices of activities and directions. He also gave me good tips on where not to go and caution on tourist traps.
They arranged for pick up at the airport and that worked very smoothly. We left Istanbul on a 5am flight and they made sure we were awake and transportation was ready on time. We also had an early departure for a day trip to Cappadocia and Mr Ilknur at the front desk offered to have a package ready for our breakfast. Very unexpected thoughtfulness and much appreciated, as for both early departures they gave us a bag with sandwiches and fruit.. handy for breakfast and even a snack during the flights.
Many restaurants nearby, and we could walk to most of the sites we wanted to see in the Old city and beyond. Ilknur gave us info on public transportation a few blocks away and we found it easy to get to and use the tram. It was raining hard one morning, and they sent us out w/ their umbrellas!
The rooms were spotless, nicely furnished and decorated w/ beautiful carpets. Coffee and tea and a mini fridge were handy to have during those odd wake up times w/ jet lag.
The breakfast buffett on the terrace was delicious and so many choices! The view is beautiful from the terrace and we enjoyed sunrise and sunset up there. Breakfast buffett had it all, eggs, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, breads, local cheeses, tea, coffee, juices, milk, etc. In good weather, sitting outside and in all weather nice to be inside by the large windows on the terrace room. There is another terrace one level up with tables as well.
We had two rooms on the 2nd floor and they were quiet even with folks going up/down steps. All the staff was friendly and talked with us when we came in, checked on how our visit was coming along and cared about our stay. We enjoyed talking with them and appreciated their concern that we were enjoying Istanbul. We had a wonderful stay, loved the people we met in hotel and the city and wish we had more time. We'd stay there again and would definitely recommend a stay at the Osmanhan Hotel. Excellent and caring service: 5+ rating

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms are not big, but they are handy to go in/out. Rooms higher are larger and have more...

A lovely boutique hotel in a great area. Only few rooms that makes it special, the service is excellent . It is located in a very nice historical area where you can easily find museum, turkish bath, full of cafe shops, restaurants, The staff are very helpful and always trying to help. The room is cosy. excellent for couples. You can easily go to Taksim square by Metro.

A great location, extremely friendly and helpful staff, spotless rooms and a very tasty breakfast with a view of the Bosporus as a bonus. In particular, nothing was too much trouble for Ilknur and his restaurant recommendations were spot on.

Unbelievable value, especially for such a superb, central location. We stayed at a decent hotel last year, but it was nowhere near as charming as the Osmanhan. Moreover, this place was a vastly superior deal --- $80 a night cheaper, and we had the best room. Add in delightful breakfasts and a superb staff that clearly cares about you --- you just can't do any better.

Room Tip: If you want a bigger bed and don't mind climbing 50 stairs, go for the deluxe room there. About...

This was our first time in Turkey and we were not sure what to expect. But from the time we stepped into this hotel, the manager Ilknur and the rest of the staff were extremely hospitable and helpful. Ilknur helped us get oriented in the city with some helpful maps and very useful tips on how to get around. He gave recommendations for restaurants, sights and areas.

The room was modest but had a comfy bed and a clean bathroom and a well-stocked fridge (water, soda, etc). They had excellent views from the rooftop of the blue mosque on one side and the marmara sea on the other. We enjoyed several sunsets on the rooftop with a coffee or a beer. They also served a great breakfast on this rooftop every morning.

One of the best aspects of this hotel is the location. You can walk to every major site in the Sultanhamet district (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, etc.) and if you don't mind a little longer walk you can cover Sirkeci on foot as well. And the area around the hotel is very quaint and laid back with steep hills paved with cobblestone and flanked by picturesque building facades.

All in all, it was a great experience and we would highly recommend Osmanhan hotel to anyone traveling to Istanbul.

This hotel is well located for all sites in the old city. Just blocks from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia? The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. They even give you a helpful map of the area and help with directions. Breakfast is on the room. Nice view. Nice place for drinks in the afternoon and evening. We would definitely stay here again.
