“Great Beds & Terrific Hosts”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Our family of 4 stayed at the Kumru for 5 nights. The beds were wonderful and the breakfast fare delicious! The hotel's location made it easy to explore the area, especially for first-timers. Melissa and Abdul gave us very good advice regarding transportation and restaurants, and helped us avoid some long lines at museums. Staying here contributed significantly to a fun experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in the garden room, which we liked because we had our own private porch - extended the liv...

Fantastic B&B in an ideal location! Walking distance to major sites, tram stops, coffee shops and restaurants!
The rooms are claen, spacious and beautifully decorated.
Delicious breakfast is served daily on the roof top terrace!

The owners, Melissa and Abdul, were extremely friendly and helpful! They arranged for great restaurants, transportation, tickets etc.

We stayed 5 nights and can highly recommend the Kumru Hotel!

We had a week long trip to Turkey, we stated at Hilton Istanbul and Hilton Bursa and spent the last three nights at Kumru Hotel. It was a pleasant stay, especially the friendly and helpfull gestures of the staff / owner was overwhelming. We booked a standard room which was spacious enough for a couple, but as we are a family of three we were shifted to a bigger room without any extra charges. For the facilities & the location, the hotel is slightly overpriced but the cordial attitude of the hotel management covers up for it.

This B&B is just fantastic. The location is ideal - it's walking distance to the major sites and the Sultanahmet metro stop when you want to hit other areas of Istanbul. The rooms and facilities are clean and beautifully decorated with a modern and bright style. Our room was spacious and there was an amazing rain showerhead in the bathroom. Breakfast is included, of course, and is to die for. The spread includes fresh-squeezed juice, omelets, eggs, Simit and Menemen (became a quick favorite), cheese, olives, fruit, etc.

The owner, Melissa, is from the U.S. and she and her staff were amazing and helpful. They gave great restaurant recommendations and helped us book transportation. Before we left, we mentioned to her that there was a Turkish pop song that kept playing at cafes during our stay but we couldn't find it when we tried to google. We had no idea what it was called, but just could hum the chorus (which to us sounded like "all you monkeys stay in your room"). By the time our flight landed in the U.S., they had found the song and emailed it to us.

I was recently referred to Kumru hotel by an American expat in Istanbul and I couldn't be more glad to find this gem. It is five minutes from all of the picturesque tourist sites in Sultanahmet and the beautiful Bosphorus river.

The decor is impeccably chic, modern, and most of all comforting. The staff is pleasant and helpful beyond belief. They're always dressed in a smile.

The breakfast selection is vast and fresh. The rooms are very spacious and clean. There are converters/adapters in the outlets, which was a tremendous relief. I would stay at this hotel from here on out while in Istanbul.

Room Tip: The suite on the 4th floor is impeccable.

Thanks to all staff at Kumru, very helpful and accommodating - especially the small details and assistance, which is the difference between good and excellent. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the location is perfect for quick access to the city, but also for the main airport. I would stay again, it is excellent value. I especially recommend the breakfast, a full spread of Mediterranean cuisine and condiments, good coffee and friendly and homely service.

I would strongly recommend staying at the Kumru Hotel. The service from the front desk to the maid service is personable and accomodating. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The location is short walking distance to all the major sights.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room on the back side of the hotel because the street side can be a little noisy...
