Berce Hotel
Ranked #162 of 1,175 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 5 September 2011

The Berce is everything that its excellent reputation suggests. In fact, we hesitate to write this review for fear that this marvelous, friendly, well-appointed, superbly situated, enviably priced hotel will become as expensive as its other, less worthy competitors! My husband and I visited in mid May 2011 for five days and were completely overwhelmed by the beauty of our room, the spectacular view from the rooftop veranda and breakfast room, the rich selection of fresh, wholesome foods available in the breakfast buffet itself, the Berce's easy access to Istanbul's major sites, and the warmth and concern of the owner, Yaşar, and his staff, especially Mehmet, who went out of their way on a daily basis to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Indeed, we noticed that several of our co-tenants were repeat guests, testimony that speaks for itself. We can't wait to go back and I can't imagine that we would want to stay anywhere else. We felt very much as if we were in the home of friends, including the resident cat curled up on his customary stairwell perch. The Berce was hands down among the best travel experiences we have ever had.

We stayed at the Berce Hotel upon hearing of the fantastical nature of dear Mehmet at the front desk. Helpful, he was! The room was great, clean with two balconies. Not much of a view from there, but the rooftop was awesome- views of both the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. When there, be sure to venture north within the city to the Besiktas region and to little towns like Bebek. Try to grab a meal under the bridge that connects Europe and Asia. Really great stay.

We really enjoyed our staying in Berce hotel. Everything was great: great position, great hospitality (the guys at the reception, Mehment and Serkan, are very helpful and they will give you all the information needed), great breakfast with fresh turkish products. The rooms were very clean and well equipped. After our staying in Istanbul, we travelled a lot around Turkey but unfortunately we couldn't found an hotel as good as Berce somewhere else. Strongly raccomended! Alice and Alberto from Italy

A really lovely hotel, very close to all the sites. The staff were really helpfull.

The breakfast was lovely. Eating on the roof top terrace was excellent.

The room was really nice and had three balconies, but this was on request.

Berce was probably one of the best run places I think I’ve ever stayed at. The room were large and comfy for the price, nicely laid out, with it being a small guesthouse i was surprised at how good the service and amenities were - also with an excellent location a 5/10 walk to most of the sights some brilliant cafes into the smaller market in Sulthamet and to the metro which will get you into the rest of turkey - without being close to the noise and hustle and bustle as its on a really quite street.

The hotel staff couldn’t help you enough - they are basically human equivalents of having a lonely planet guide in the hotel, Mehmet gave us a detailed talk about the city all the trips and places to visit and restaurants he recommended were spot on and he was always helpful and had a nice smile on his face along with the rest of the hotel staff.

On a side note the breakfast was amazing - best continental ive ever had. Lots of lovely cheeses, breads, hams, omelettes, fruit veg and honey all really fresh.

STAY HERE!

Location: Perfect
Rooms: Clean & Cozy
Host: Wonderful
Breakfast: The best we had on the trip
Breakfact Location: Rooftop
Breakfast View: Marmara Sea on one side & Blue Mosque on the other

Berce is a small cozy place, a home away from home. The host, Mehmet, is a wonderful person and always ready to help if you need anything - getting day tours arranged / airport pickup or drops / ordering kebabs from a famous kebab place / any info about Istanbul :)

We had a wonderful time staying there. Wud love to come back.
