“The perfect Istanbul home away from home”
Reviewed 6 October 2009

Just seven largish rooms in this tiny hotel absolutely perfectly located between the Bosphorus and the Hippodrome. Wonderful views from the breakfast terrace, a very pleasant and helpful manager, and all the Hazun of Constantinople, as Orhan Pamuk would write..

We were very pleased with Hotel Berce and especially with our host, Mehmet Kaya. He stayed in email contact with us, letting us know when an additional night became available for our stay, and was very friendly and helpful during our visit.
The hotel is small, located on a relatively quiet street just a few blocks from the Blue Mosque and the Arasta Bazaar. Because of the last minute availability of our first room we were given a triple located in the basement, quiet and comfortably appointed but lacking in natural light even with three small windows. The next day we moved to a lovely room complete with sitting area and 3 small balconies. It would be easy to imagine staying here comfortably for an extended stay. Mehmet told us his goal is to make the Berce feel more like home than a hotel and he has succeeded.
With its great view of both the Blue Mosque and Sea of Marmara, the rooftop breakfast terrace was a beautiful way to begin the day.

I spent nine days in this wonderful small hotel within easy walking distance of the tram, Grand Bazar, Blue Mosque etc. The rooms are very comfortable, light and airy. They were very clean and the sheets and towels beautifully white and clean. The room had been very recently decorrated and furnished, with Turkish carpets covering the wood floor. The ensuite bathroom was small, modern and pleasant. Both airconditioning and central heating were available. On the top floor (up a spiral staircase) there is a pleasant breakfast terrace with both inside and outside seating and a great view of the Bosphorous. The management was very friendly, professional and helpful. Highly reccomended.

I stayed one night at this hotel by myself. Given how inexpensive the hotel was, I expected it to be very basic. I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely appointed the hotel was. Nicely furnished, new appliances and furnishings, LCD tv, great breakfast, free internet, and very conveniently located. Mehmet at the front desk was incredibly helpful with calling cabs, giving directions, and generally helping out. The only thing wrong with my room was that the window didn't close properly. However, the area is so quiet that it wasn't a problem. Definitely a great place to stay!

I selected this hotel out of Tripadvisor and realized that it is not good location for business meeting, as all my customers are located very far away. However, except this matter, I find the hotel is very cosy, tidy, value for money and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room rate includes free internet and breakfast, which is served at the roof top, where you have very beautiful view and can get a day started with the mind refreshed. The surrondings of the hotel are very much historical and the location wise, it is very good for the travellers on signtseeing.
