This hotel is prime location, with a fabulous staff and excellent hospitality making your family and you feel at home. Free shuttle service one way, we had this service when we first arrived. Upon arriving we received a warm welcome with drinks and turkish sweets from the staff. The staff assisted our travels to Izmir which was great-we traveled to Ephesus and Pamukkale with a private driver and tour guide that fit our itinerary. Breakfast is included and they make omelletes for you upon request-I cannot stress enough how hospitable and kind the staff here is. They answered any questions we had about the sites and were very knowledgable about the location, points of interest along with any other questions we had.
Many thanks to Manager Harun Cadirci and his wonderful statt: Elef, Jihan, Mohammad, Omar, Yagmur, Cafer and the rest! The staff brought a cake for my sister's birthday the day of our departure, which was very kind of them. The rooms are in great condition; assortment of tea/coffee, modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. The hotel is a bit cozy, so you may hear other conversations down the hall but it wasn't a problem for our family. You may request rooms on floors 2-4, as I believe there are 2 rooms on the first floor if this concerns you. The hotel is very clean too and has fast free WI-FI.
This hotel is 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, and about 5-10 minutes walk to Grand Bazaar. Spice Bazaar is about 20 min walk, along the Boshphorous. The area is very safe, with local cuisine right around the corner. The famous 300 year old Hamam (Turkish Bath) is literally down the street next to the Sultan Ahmet Fish House (Must go here!! great food and great service!). Turkish bath- It's a bit expensive, but defintely worth the experience. Definitely check out this hotel if you travel to Istanbul!! We will be back at the White House Hotel soon~
