Staff extremely friendly and helpful.
We had a large room overlooking the Bosphoros on the 4 th floor. The view from the room and the roof terrace is by far one of the best views I ever had on our travels.
The breakfast was typical Turkish and of a basic standard . I would definitely return if I could have the same room.

Just come back from short break at the Ferman Hotel - fantastic time, hotel is in a great location, 5 mins walk from Blue Mosque, great view from roof terrace. Hotel staff really helpful and can advise and direct you anywhere. Great Value break, and I would definately stay there again. Staying this close to the Blue Mosque and in this boutique hotel beats big chain hotels in the built up city area!

Room Tip: ask for a room from floor 2 or 3 - where views willl be better

My husband and I stayed here recently for 5 nights. Overall the location in the Old City made it easy for us to walk to all the sites and there's a cute street of restaurants, they are more touristy but convenient and lots of options.

Pros:
- Location in the Old CIty
- Clean, and they turn the rooms quickly
- Nice Staff

Cons:
- Not overly impressed with the rooms, they are just average
- Breakfast was lacking, we only ate it once and didn't enjoy it
- Staff overly sells specific tours/drivers, I recommend not even asking them for advice they will just steer you to wherever they get a kick back....it got really annoying when we would ask a question about the Ferry and they would try to sell us on another boat tour that wasn't going where we wanted to go

Tips:
- Don't stay here for the rooftop (like we did) every restaurant on the street has a roof top
- Also, all the hotels in this area look very similar, I image they are all about the same on the inside too so you can't go wrong
- Be sure to buy water at the mart, the water in the room is like a shot glass of water
- Face the Blue Mosque, we faced the water which first looked over a falling down house and trash
- Do your own research on tours (or you'll be paying a ton of money for a tour that you could have gotten half price on your own)
- If you want a fun night, walk to the Happy Hole, it's a short walk on Akbiyik street. They have a great playlist, hookah, drinks.
- Walk around & take the ferries to other areas!! They are quick and super cheap!

Room Tip: Mosque facing higher up room. Don't upgrade to the balcony room, it's just big enough to st...

Location is great for major attractions. Generous room size. Unfortunately there is an almost constant smell of smoke drifting into the room. Air conditioning doesn't work, light bulbs burned out and not replaced when requested, broken switches.

The Hotel is fantastic!!!
The breakfast is a great continental buffet, plenty of taste, colours.
The views are amazing!! You can see the Bosforo o you can see the Blue Mosque.
The locations is perfect, because it is in a heart of Sultanahmet neighborhood.
So you can get everything you need: restaurant, bars and tourits atrattions only you have to walk.
The staff are increible persons, very nice and helpful.
Super recomendable!

This quaint boutique hotel is centrally located close to restaurants and the tram station. The roof terrace of this hotel has by far the best view in the neighbourhood.Rooms are clean and comfortable..
Best thing about the hotel will be the staff,especially Sinan at the reception, who was very helpful and hospitable and took the time to introduce us to local food and culture.
Memorable stay and highly recommended!
