We stayed five nights in the White House Hotel following recommendations on trip advisor and weren't disappointed. It is conveniently located near all the famous sights and the restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful and assisted us with transport to and from the airport. The breakfasts were very nice on the top floor and it would be lovely in the summer on the terrace.

A two night stopover whilst travelling from Nairobi to London. We received a great welcome and the staff were always friendly and helpful. A great location for the most important sights with many restaurants and cafes nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear. The street is quite busy at night.

The White House is situated in the heart of Sultanahmet and as such is perfectly located for virtually all the sites. There is a tram stop about 2 minute walk away and it is surrounded by loads of restaurants and gift shops.

If you are staying three days or more there is a complimentary pick up service from the airport – this was really helpful. The car was a luxury people carrier and within minutes we were inside and on our way to the hotel.

On arrival you are given a free drink and some Turkish delight while one of the staff gives you information on the hotel. Also when you get to the room, there is a small bottle of complimentary wine on the bed – the bed is also decorated with rose petals and there are lit candles around the room.

A nice touch is the hand-written letter of welcome on the bed.

The room is of a very ornate style – lots of gold etc. Our room was quite small but as we were only staying three days this was not such an issue. There is a kettle with complimentary tea and coffee in the room. There is also a safe and a (pay) mini-bar in the room and a hairdryer in the bathroom The bathroom had no bath but we did have a large shower. Unfortunately the shower tray tilted forwards lightly and the surface was quite slippery which meant you had to be very careful when having shower. The shower itself was nice with Jacuzzi style jets should you want them.

The bed was very comfortable and everything was immaculately clean. There is a nice roof terrace which over-looks the Blue Mosque although having visited in February it was too cold to do anything other than have a look and take a few photos – it must be a very nice place to have a drink when it’s a bit warmer.

The staff are very friendly and very welcoming – you even get a small gift on check out. The only small negative that I can think of is that our room front of the hotel and it could be quite noisy at times. This is not one of the big chain hotels so you won’t get things like room service, a gym or swimming pools but there is so much to see in Istanbul that your time is better spent outside of the hotel than in. In short – excellent location, friendly staff and very clean comfortable rooms.

My daughter and I stayed at the White House Hotel in Istanbul during a recent vacation, celebrating her college graduation. We couldn't have asked for better service or a better location. The hotel is located in Sultanahmet, in the heart of the historic old town and within easy walking distance to all the "major" notable sites (Blue Mosque, Aya Sofiya, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar, etc.), as well as to the tram line. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, the breakfast (included in the room rate) is top notch, and the staff is very accommodating, prompt, polite, and helpful. I contacted the front desk staff on a few occasions to ask for assistance in directions and recommendations, and they were always very happy to lend a hand. Necati, in particular, proved to be invaluable when we were unsure of how to get to the Asian side of Istanbul for a dinner appointment. I highly recommend this hotel to travelers visiting Istanbul - it's the best!

Location is fantastic. It's closed to all the famous places have to go. When I ate breakfast on the roof, I could see the beautiful Catholic church and the other places as well.
Thank you for your kind hospitality. Hope to go there again.
