We spend four nights in Istanstanbul In White House Hotel togheter with our three years old child and we liked it very much. The hotel is very very close about 250 m from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, 2 railway station from the Grand Bazar and you have many restaurant near you. The hotel is very clean and also the bathrooms. The rooms are not very big. The staff is very carefull and nice. In the hotel you only can have breakfast, there is no other restaurant and there are no smoking rooms but we liked it very much.

We are 3 people from Italy and we have been in the hotel during July for 3 nights. The White House hotel is in a strategic position (5 -10 minutes by walking from the most important places!). The building is completly restructured and the room is very clean and very comfortable. The roof where we had breakfast is nice and it has a lovely panoramic view of Istanbul. But the strongest point of this hotel is the staff! They are young people very kind and nice! They gave us good suggestions and tips on what to do and what to see. They took care of us making our stay very pleasant!

Room Tip: They could improve the breakfast quality.

We just got back from a 4 night stay in Istanbul, at White House Hotel. The hotel choice was based on tripadvisor reviews and you were right - this hotel is excellent. A free shutle from Ataturk airport and a welcome drink with turkish delight on arrival, were provided!!!
Is well located - about 5 minutes walking to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and 10 minutes walking to the Grand Bazaar. Just around the corner there is a lot of good turkish restaurants... Even the Spice Bazaar is at walking distance...
Thanks to the wonderful staff, in special to Omar and Cafer that were a great help in our stay in the city.
Would recomend this hotel to friends and family.

We zoomed in and out of istanbul in 2 days and found this hotel through good reviews on trip advisor. All reviews were accurate and we found the staff very helpful and keen to assist us. On arrival we were offered a free upgrade to a gorgeous suite whcih was lovely. It was decorated beautifully and was extremely comfortable. The breakfast is served on the terrace which has nice views. Would recommend to all.

Everyone was very helpful and welcoming. Just 5 minutes walk to Hagia Sofia, walkable to catch a ferry even.
Rooms are nicely furnished, not massive, but a good enough size. The multi function shower took a little working out! No problems with noise. Breakfast (until 10am) on the room terrace was a great start to the day, with views of Hagia Sofia.
Airport transfer was included for us and was there waiting. Great service, throughly recommended, I would go back.

We stayed at the White House for three days. They provide free one way shuttle from the airport. The hotel is awesome. It is in the middle of all the old town attractions. The roof top terrace is a great place for breakfast or to watch the city lights come on a night. The rooms are renovated and clean. The staff is very friendly. You will NOT be disappointed if you stay here.

We stayed at the White House the last night we were in Istanbul before flying back home to the states and I must say that I've literally never felt more like royalty than I did staying at that hotel. I truly felt like the President of the US and pretty much had Hail to the Chief looping in my head the entire time I stayed there.

They first greeting us with complimentary juice and turkish delights, which after an overnight bus from Izmir was heavenly. Then, without even telling us till much later, they upgraded our room from a standard to a suite FOR FREE. It was like being Jon Hamm in 30 rock and living in a beautiful person bubble.

We checked in at 11 or so and hadn't eaten anything all day so we inquired about breakfast/lunch places in the area to which they simply replied: why don't you just have breakfast here today and tomorrow!? Uhm Ok! So we went up to the rooftop terrace after putting out stuff away where they had an amazing spread of eggs, cheeses, meats, bread, jams, fruit, olives, etc, all of which overlooked the beautiful Istanbul skyline and Blue Mosque.

We asked them about several touristy things that we wanted to do our last day in Istanbul and they were extremely helpful. The staff was both friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. When we checked out they gave my girlfriend a complimentary scarf and necklace and me a turkish delight gift sampler. I don't know if our experience was unique (I doubt it but maybe our natural charisma and charm won them over) but if your experience will be anything like ours you should stop reading reviews, click on the hotels.com link and book this place. End scene.
