White House Hotel Istanbul

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Staying at the White House Hotel for 4 nights over a long weekend was so wonderful. The staff was so generous and attentive. Having our expectations set prior to arrival that the hotel was specifically boutique format helped us get in the right mindset and yet expectations were exceeded consistently. The terrace was beautiful, breakfast was delicious, the room was a comfortable size, etc. I was there with a girlfriend of mine from New York City for a long weekend of exploring the gorgeous city of Istanbul.

We asked for a recommendation of a wine store one night and we're instead brought a bottle of wine to enjoy free of charge. The Turkish are extremely generous people but even just this small gesture really continued to keep us falling in love with White House. There were no noise issues for us except for flushing toilets which could be avoided just by closing the door to our bathroom.

I'd highly recommend staying here!!

The White House Hotel is a true gem in the Old City. This hotel couldn't have a better location, it is just steps from the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the Basilica Cistern, and a short distance from the Grand Bazaar. Aside from the cultural sites, the hotel's service is unparalleled. There is always a friendly face to greet you upon arrival and departure. The staff is knowledgable, helpful, and extremely welcoming. This is my second time staying at the White House Hotel and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic hotel in the heart of it all!

We are a young couple from Greece who travelled to Istanbul for 3 days on the occasion of Valentine's Day.Found the hotel via Internet and it was beyond our expectations. Great service, friendly staff, situated at a very good location-walking distance from Agia Sofia,Blue Monque,Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar.A good variety of good restaurants around.Will surely come back to you in the future and suggest your hotel to our friends. Well done!

Oh my goodness! When we checked in they asked us to sit in the lobby for a moment and offered juice and Turkish Delight. Little did we know it was to give them time to light all the candles that filled our beautiful, comfortable, quiet room, along with the rose petals scattered on the bed. Super centrally located to walk to all major sites and to take the tram to all others, nice breakfast, nice people. Nothing but nice things to say. Will go back in a heartbeat next time I'm in Istanbul.

Went to The White House for a weekend away, everything was really nice, the owner emailed us before we arrived arranging an airport pick up, the staff in the hotel were all fantastic, the location was perfect right next to the Blue Mosque, a short walk to the Grand Bazaar, the room had been set up perfectly for our weekend.....highly recommended.

White House Hotel is a pleasant and comfortable hotel with a very helpful and attentive staff. Our package included breakfast on the rooftop terrace. The breakfast selection was varied, interesting, tasty, and plentiful. The dining room is all white (in keeping with the hotel name) and is bright and cheery. The staff again was always eager to help. Because we stayed 6 nights we had free shuttle service from and to the airport.
Our room was clean, comfortable, and the bed was really quite good. A flat-screen TV was attached to the wall and BBC, SKY TV and CNN International were available along with many more non-English speaking channels. The shower was super good.
White House Hotel is within easy walking distance of historic monuments. The immediate area also has a goodly amount of cafes, restaurants, and shops.
We would stay here again should we ever return to this part of Istanbul.
