“Fantastic Hotel, Great Value, Great Location”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

This is a fantastic small hotel with great staff who look after you during your stay. Excellently priced the rooms are clean modern and tidy, the breakfast is brilliant and the location is perfect for visiting the main attractions in Istanbul.

I booked this hotel after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and have to say it was fantastic. Prior to my trip the hotel staff organised airport transfer for me and my friend and despite us arriving well before check in time we were allowed breakfast upon arrival. The breakfast room is a notable balcony room on the top floor which looks out over the Bospherus straights.

The staff were a fantastic source of advice about the city and the hotel is conveniently located about 500m away from the Blue Mosque and main tourist attractions. There are lots of very good restaurants within walking distance and the staff were fantastic when we arrived late/in the early mornings after a night out.

I would definitely stay here again as the service was fantastic. Staff were always happy to help with anything from advice where to eat, how to walk to the attractions and the loan of umbrellas when the weather looked like turning.

When traveling with my husband Tim, and our friend, Bob, I am always tasked with finding the right hotel. We are always looking for a place that will make us feel like we are "living" in the area that we are staying in. We try to achieve this by staying in small, locally run, hotels that are in neighborhoods with locals. We are not looking for the big chain hotels that are the same all over the world. Well, the Berce (Bear-Chey) was perfect. Tim and I stayed for 15 nights and Bob joined us for the last 10 days. After the first 24 hours, Bob said that I had done it again, i.e. the hotel, the people, the location, the views, the neighbors, the Turkish breakfast, the people (had to say that again) were just wonderful and I had found the right place. It became our home after busy days seeing the spectacular sights. All the privacy you could ever want, but the kind of atmosphere that many of the hosts and fellow travelers get to know each other if that is what you want. I can't seem to get the place out of my mind. It was as hard to leave The Berce as it was to leave fabulous Istanbul. Mehmet, thanks again for everything. You are in my thoughts. And Serkan, thank you for the wonderful note that I found 2 days later. Good Life, as they say in Istanbul, and hope to be back in the future. Karen and Tim, Tampa, Florida

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony

Just got back from 10 nights at the Berce Hotel in Istanbul. What a lovely hideaway with only seven rooms. Just making the arrangements was a pleasure. (We didn't bother with any of the travel sites, just e-mailed them directly.) The whole gang is great.
The rooftop breakfast room looks out over the Bospherus, and you can turn around and just see the tips of the Blue Mosque's minarets. A 6 minute walk takes you up to the area of the ancient hippodrome with Hagia Sophia and Topkopi Palace just beyond.
There is a terrific restaurant just up the street by the intriguing name of Cheers Soul. No, they don't serve rich Southern cooking, the owner said he wanted the place to show its heart,its "soul".

Room Tip: Ask for one of the corner rooms, with 3 balconies!

This is our third visit to istanbul and we always stay here. The rooftop breakfast is fantastic and the staff are absolutley first rate. Mehmet and all the others are top notch and the location is excellent for vsitis to all the historic sights, all within walking distance.The bazaar is less than 10 minutes walk away and the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia era about 5 mins away, beyaond convenient. Excellent value for the money. Would recommend the Berce to everyone coming to Istanbul, thank you again for a wonderful stay !

This is a very nice small hotel with a wonderful and helpful staff on duty 24 hours a day. The location is near the Blue Mosque. Breakfast is on the roof with an amazing view of the Bosphorus.
Mehmet, the manager took personal care to make our stay comfortable.
They have a small number of rooms.

Room Tip: both rooms our group had were good.... this is a very small hotel! Many rooms have views of the sea.

We stayed for 4 nights at the Berce Hotel and would have loved to stay longer.  The hotel is ideally located in a quiet area of the city, within walking distance of all the main attractions and some excellent restaurants. 

Our room was very comfortable, spacious and clean, and had everything we needed including a minibar, kettle, hairdryer, tea and coffee.  Our hosts were welcoming, friendly and always on hand to provide help and advice.  The airport we arrived at was some distance outside the centre but we arranged transfers through the hotel which made travelling very easy.
 
Breakfast was excellent and served in a roof top room with views over the sea.  There was a selection of cereals, breads, fresh and dried fruit, meats, cheeses, eggs, salads etc and the local honey was delicious! 
 
We would wouldn’t hesitate in staying here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul.

My husband and I stayed here in late January. We came to Istanbul as tourists, and this proved to be an ideal location for us. We were just steps from the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The location (in the old quarter) was quiet, and we could see the Sea of Marmara from both our hotel room and the breakfast room. The staff were all kind, warm, and hospitable. Breakfast was tasty, healthy, etc. We felt safe, welcome, and very much at home. We highly recommend!
