We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, the staff was extremely friendly and were very accomodating in answering all of our questions on sightseeing and restaurants in the area. The hotel is in a very good location, being a 10 - 15 min. walk to most of the major sites including the Grand Bazaar. The room was very spacious, appeared to be very clean and was perfect for our 2 night stay.

We had an amazing stay at the White House Hotel on our honeymoon to Turkey, and we couldn't have wished for a better place from which to explore Istanbul.

Yes, the location is in the heart of the sights, and yes the room was beautiful, comfortable and quiet, and yes the breakfast was lovely, but the most memorable part for us will always be the amazing staff. Not only did they welcome us with flowers, wine and fruit at the start of our honeymoon, but they were genuinely interested in what we were doing each day, and helped with every aspect of the trip.

Cafer in particular went out of his way to assist us with everything from restaurant reservations (which got us the best table, since we were guests from the White House!) down to train tickets, and made sure everything was in order during our whole stay. We can't thank him enough for making us feel truly welcome both at the hotel, and in Istanbul.

When we left - a sad day - when they had finished helping us take our bags down, many of the staff appeared to come to say goodbye to us and sent us on our way with another gift as a reminder of our fantastic stay in istanbul. We certainly hope to visit again one day. We've never experienced such a personal service - these guys have got it right.

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.
