“For experienced travelers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

We are couple with two teenagers stayed in Ascot house Istanbul on June 2012 for 5 nights.
It was a very interesting experience.
Location: walking distance to major touristic places. But apartment itself situated in authentic Turkish area, that will not be suitable to everyone.
We found it very interesting and attractive part of our vacation.
Rooms: clean, in Turkish stile, with a lot of drapery and pillows. Showers– high standard. Landry machine. Kitchen with all appliances. Air conditioner. TV.
Seams no WiFi.
Disadvantage: no any place to dry laundry. Leaking from air conditioner root.
House keeper – lazy Gul. We bought soap and toilet pepper two days before she brought it.
Breakfast: we recommend – go down street , turn left, café in park on your right( 5min). Try “Manimen”

Istanbul is amazing! Ascot house is very good!

Room Tip: Duplex was very good.

I cannot rate this apartment building and the sister hotel more highly! Everything was of a very high quality and the staff were amazingly helpful and attentive and charming. Very convenient location, beautiful decor, amenities and facilities. Lovely view. I just read in another (still very positive) review that there isn't "a concierge waiting to help you every minute" and I must say this wasn't our experience. Between the sweet woman across the road who assists with the management of the building and the phone in reception to the Ascot Hotel, we could not have been more helped!

I spent one week in early November 2011 in the Penthouse Apartment at Ascot House. I was very happy with the accommodation and the location, which was convenient for all the main places to visit in Sultanahmet. It was also very close to shops, supermarkets and restaurants and the tram was only a short walk away. The views from the apartment, of the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea were wonderful.

The bedroom and shower room were very comfortable, with plenty of hot water available. Central heating worked well. WiFi worked well (although I had to use the connection listed for the lower apartments as the code for the Penthouse did not seem to work). The lady caretaker was very helpful and friendly, although she did not speak any English. The phone in the foyer connected directly to the Ascot Hotel, where the receptionist spoke very good English.

My only slight quibbles were the rather odd furniture in the sitting room - not very comfortable chairs and a wrought iron garden table rather than an indoor table with a flat surface. Also rather strange collection of cooking equipment, no coffee maker and no work surface.

There was a slight smell of drains when I arrived - I identified this as coming from the kitchen drain and solved the problem by removing everything I needed from the lower cupboards and drawers and then keeping these closed, which seemed to contain the source of the problem!

I would be very happy to stay in this apartment again and would recommend it for 2 people, although I think it would seem crowded for any more.

Room Tip: I stayed on the top floor, where the view was excellent. The apartment was very quiet at night.

A great, central place to stay... if you don't want the grand hotels! Of course you don't get a concierge waiting to help you every minute, but you get the freedom to come and go as you please, late check out ... Whenever we were ready!.... Was not a problem. Location was superb, just around the corner from our friends who stayed at the Hilton etc. Furnishings were luxurious, kitchenette functional though a bit cramped. Local shopping for fresh veg and drinks was very easy. We had the top floor apartment and the views were superb from the two balconies. I wish we could have stayed longer! It definitely gets our recommendation.

Very good location, very close to blue mosque and beautiful view. Clean and very calm place, near the apartment the supermarket, bars in two street with good seafood and view bar at the hotel roof, and nice hamam at kadirga street- all you need to enjoy your stay is close. The rooms big and good furnitured, 5th extra bed was also given. Really recommend the ascot house apartment, next time I am in Istanbul I will stay here definately.

We stayed in the Blue Mosque Apartment mid-September. Having never been to Istanbul before we were thrilled with the location of the apartments - only a short walk away from Istanbul's most impressive sights. The decor and layout of the apartments is really impressive - the whole place has a luxury feel about it and was fully kitted out with everything we needed. The lady who let us in was very helpful throughout our stay, and the airport transfer was organised perfectly so we didn't have to walk anywhere with our suitcases. I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend Ascot House to anyone wanting to spend time in Istanbul - I certainly hope to return!
