“Two Thumbs Up for Mustaffa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Look no further if you are heading to Istanbul. This is the place to stay in. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul.

The location is great , and there is easy access to the historic sites and tram station but that is not the only treason to stay here.

Of course there is free WI FI and the breakfast is great and wonderful but that is not the only reason to stay here.

The corner stores are literally around the corner and you can buy cheap water and other necessities but that is not the only reason to stay here.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable but that is not the only reason to stay here.

The hotel provides free shuttle to and from the airport if you stay beyond a certain number of days but that but that is not the only reason to stay here.

The rates are far more reasonable than the other hotels in Istanbul but that is not the only reason to stay here.

You can also change your money here at 0% commission but that is not the only reason to stay here.

The roof terrace was quite nice, but that is not the only reason to stay here.

The level of cleanliness is wonderful but that is not the only reason to stay here.

The real reason why you would want to stay here is because of the staff. The genuine friendliness and hospitality of the staff is something that you will always remember. Mustafa and staff couldn't be more helpful. Faruk, Yunus, Veylus and the rest of the team are so friendly, helpful and very accommodating throughout our stay.

They are a true asset to the hotel.

Yunus is excellent to guiding and booking tours. He always gives the best options.

We found Mr. Mustafa Kavak and his assistant Faruk in particular to be totally attentive and dedicated to ensuring that his guests have a pleasant stay and that all their needs are looked into. They were totally committed to their job and went out of the way to make sure that we had a pleasant stay.

From the moment we stepped in the hotel EVERYBODY, including Mr. Kavak helped us booking tours, mentioned good restaurants and all kind of information. Their attitude was always prompt and kind.

If it wasn't for the wonderful work of Mustaffa, we would have had a whole different experience in Istanbul. I just cannot say enough about this hotel. Must stay here! I know I will again
I want to personally thank MUSTAFA for his patience and kindness .

Two thumbs up for Mustaffa !!

We really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Everything was great, the location, free WIFI, easy access to the historic sites and tram station, and especially the hospitality of the hotel staff.
Mustafa and staff couldn't be more helpful, Yunus, Gijan, Veylus and the rest of the team are so friendly, helpful and very accommodating throughout our stay.
The Sauna and the Turkish bath were a plus sign, amazing experience.
We were not disappointed and we can recommend to anyone who wants to visit Istanbul to stay in this hotel.

Mustafa and his staff namely Yunus, Jihan and Veylis just made our stay memorable and very comfortable. As the name suggests - Home Suits, it is exactly that - a very homely and friendly set up. Extremely helpful staff. Comfortable rooms. Stunning view from the roof top. I took advantage of the roof top and practiced my yoga and meditation. The Spa and gymn is super excellent. Very nice Turkish spa. Almost personalised. no need to carry toiletries. The complimentary ones are superb. Especially the hair conditioner. You will enjoy the breakfast. Very healthy and tasy. Caters very well for vegetarian. Variety of amazing cheeses. There is a hot breakfast for non vegetarian. Walking distance to all the main sites and near the tram station. Overlooks the Marmara sea. The reception especially Yunus is excellent to guiding and booking tours. He always gives the best options. You can also change your money here at 0% commission.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. You can get an extra bed if there is 3 sharing. Sea facing rooms are always...

We stayed at The Alzer on the front end of our trip to Turkey and then flew to Cappadocia. My fiancé and I wanted to stay at a hotel we could relax on the final days of our trip when we arrived back in Istanbul. We picked the Best Western Premier and were not disappointed. We didn't realize the hotel rate included complimentary Turkish bath. We also set up massages and the woman gave excellent massage. Before we flew to Cappadocia we checked a bag at the front dest and set up airport transfer with Duygu. She was very helpful and very nice. It was helpful to be able to leave a bag at the hotel in advance of our check in.
When we came back (June 12-14) Duygu and Ugur checked us in. They remembered us and took great care of us. We ate dinner in the restaurant and had a bottle of wine. The service and food were wonderful.
We noticed Ugar seemed to be at the hotel both in the evening and then he was there the next day, we inquired if he slept there, but he said with a smile he was just covering for a colleague on vacation. You couldn't tell he was tired or working a double shift. He was a very professional and pleasant young man. This hotel has a great staff which I feel is really important when picking a place to stay. We will absolutely stay again!

If it wasn't for the amazing staff at our hotel, we would have had a whole different experience in Istanbul. They accommodated us daily, from breakfast before it was actually breakfast time aka comıng home from the clubs, to helping us book our excursions, to just being a really cool group. Shout out to Ugur, Yunus, Veyis (head Walter) and Cıhan/Berfın! Even ıf you don't stay check out the rooftop for a meal or drınk. Location is within walking distance of Sophia and Blue Mosque too!

We contacted Mr. Mustafa Kavak, manager of the hotel from Miami before making a decision and based on his offer, kind of establishment and his warm and accommodating approach we decided to make the reservation for eight nights.
They contacted us to verify the plane arrival and sent a shuttle to the airport.
From the moment we stepped in the hotel EVERYBODY, including Mr. Kavak welcomed us,
helped us booking tours, mentioned good restaurants and all kind of information.
Their actitude was always prompt and kind.
The premises are immaculate, anything you request is provided immediately.
The breakfast, which is included in the price, is full of different varieties of local delicacies as
well as the regular menu.
To resume the great experience we are already looking forward to return to their establishment
and Istanbul, which is a lovely city.
We will keep them in our hearts after an emotional farewell and an spectacular city visit.
