Reviewed 16 February 2013

We stayed for 6 nights, and would highly recommend this boutique hotel for it's friendly and knowledgeable staff, great location near main sights, and clean room. Breakfast had plenty of Turkish options, and was always a great start to a day of touring. Staff was helpful in planning our activities and recommending options; they never failed to fulfilled our requests, including a last minute tour booking. The room and private bath were substantially sized for the price, and the decor was very tasteful, including plenty of space for 2 large suitcases, hanging items plus a desk/makeup table.
We would not hesitate to recommend the hotel, or visit again if our travels bring us back to Istanbul.

Room Tip: They will include breakfast with your stay, as well as help book your activities, all with a smiling...

I stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed it so much! I mean, you cannot beat the location...it is very close to several of the main attractions - literally, less than 5 walking distance! It is also very close to the bosphorous body of water - you can walk less than 10 minutes to get to a great running/walking track along the bosphourous. Also not far from the public transport system. Other than the great location, you will want to hurry and get back to the hotel to enjoy the beautiful and cultural essense of the lobby and room's decor. It was so beautiful and ornate and made you feel like you were spending the night at a rich uncle's well furnished house :) Breakfast was wonderful as well, fresh squeezed orange juice every morning and much more. Staff was friendly and helpful and sat down with each guest one on one to give tips for travel and explain maps of the city and such. The "eastern" hospitality was definitely evident in this family run hotel - if you've never experienced, it is delightful. Stay here if you want to be sure that you will have a great time and enjoy your stay.

The key points of this hotel are, location, the people working there and how cute and clean is the hotel. I find this hotel a perfect place to stay to visit Istambul. Enjoyed mainly the attention and its walking distance to the main tourist spots. On top of this the hotel is very nice and cute, the room is comfortable and clean and the decoration is very authentic. And good value for price.

Our stay at Esans was such a pleasant experience, I'm not sure I can find enough words to describe how great it was! Even before we got there, Engin worked with us to accommodate our ever-chaging arrival schedule, and was very quick to respond to emails. We stayed there for four nights, and the hotel even arranged for our pickup from Ataturk airport. The staff was very friendly and very helpful, and was always available when we had questions. And the location cannot be beat! It's literally a few steps away from the major historical sites in the city! If you are trying to decide between this hotel and another, choose this one. It was superb.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 303, which was cozy, but had a beautiful view of the Bosphorous.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights n I would say its one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. It situated in the Sultanahmet area and the main sites are a few minutes within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and super clean. The staff are warm and welcoming and go beyond the call of duty to ensure that u are comfortable and that u enjoy your stay in Istanbul. They are also jacked up in respect of tourist information.The Esans team is truly amazing. The rooms are equipped with a mini bar , kettle with complimentary tea and coffee accompnied by slippers. In addition to this toiletries are provided. The rooms are beautifully decorated in Ottomon style decor with each room having a specific scent. A lovely spread for breakfast is provided. I was hooked on the yummy chocolate squares. All in all my stay was wonderful and upon return to Istanbul I shall return to Esans Hotel won't think of any other place.

Where to start? First, area of the hotel is wonderful! Nice clean streets, very close to all the important places *3min walking from Hagia Sophia .Hotel itself was surprisingly clean, neat, warm welcome and smilling faces, interesting decor, perfectly organized and family run.
Aircondition perfect, bathroom perfect, helped us with the luggage, organized airport transfer, gave us free coffee and present for goodbye!!!!!
Smelling great! Beautiful terrace overlooking the sea..I could not have asked for more, and my friends were soooo happy! If you want to feel real Turkish hospitality, spirit of the people living here and walk around the most beautiful and very safe area in Istanbul, this is the right place for you.
Tip: very simple sandwiches or any food during the day would be great

Guys, keep the good work, keep smilling, and 7 girls will smile right back to you :)).
We say hi to the owner, Cengiz, Erhan, Devlet and Engin.

We love your place

Room Tip: triple room great

I am rather picky person and usually dont write such reviews but I really need to write few good sentences for Esans family hotel and people that runs it because everything there was excellent. Rooms are so lovely, you have filling of staying in some relatives home, boys at reception are helpful with informations and calling to reserve some show, taxi or whatever is needed, breakfast is so delicous (mmm pancakes, good jam and some nice bread spreads, among other things) and turkish coffee or tea for free when you come back after whole day walking through Bazaar and spending much money for every little thing. I would recommend to everyone who wants to experience best of Sultanahmet.....

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view on the see
