“Love Istanbul, and love the Kumru Hotel!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Kumru in August and September of 2013. If you need a place to stay in the Old Town right in the shadow of the Blue Mosque, you won't go wrong by staying here. The rooms are reasonably priced, lovingly appointed, and meticulously kept. The rooftop breakfast.is delicious and generous as well as true to the Turkish culinary tradition. Best of all, the proprietor, Melissa, is extremely kind and helpful. We only have good things to say about the Kumru!

Room Tip: If you have a family, go for the suite. It's terrific. The Kumru does not have a pool, but few h...

We recommend making your choice in favor of this hotel.

We liked the location of the hotel - in the heart of the city and at the same time in a quiet place. Also we liked the warm and cozy atmosphere, nice interior design, reasonable price. The room is spacious and bright, very comfortable for a large family. There are all necessary facilities and electrical appliances in the room and in the bathroom. Everything works properly and all is tidy. The maids always kept order in the room and the bathroom.

The price includes breakfast (buffet), which is plentiful, delicious, fresh, and quite various.

The hotel is planned thoroughly, with good service, cultural, unobtrusive service. Courtesy of the staff is pleasantly impressed. Managers and hotel staff are always ready to help, they answer any questions: orient you with sights on the map, where to eat, where to go. They solve many problems. Thanks to managers and staff of the hotel we were able to spend a wonderful holidays, our family returned to St. Petersburg with a huge and pleasant impressions.

We recommend Kumru Hotel to friends and would return ourselves. Thanks a lot!

We stayed there 5 nights at the beginning of July. Check-in was a breeze, our room was ready nice and clean, and Abdul gave us all the information we needed. Room was on the small size with very little storage space, bathroom also on the small size with a very good shower with lots of hot water. The neighberhood is quiet a liitle bit outside of the center but close enough about a 10 minites walk to Blue Mosque. You cannnot go wrong if you choose this hotel.

Called to enquire about rates a day before but couldn't book because our flights were not confirmed. Abdul kept to his words and reserved us a room eventhough it was such a short notice. Beautiful and clean hotel with chic interior.. but what sets them apart is 'Abdul and Melissa'.. they will go the extra mile to keep their customers happy. Always ready to help. Very good location because it is close enough to all the action but quiet enough for a good night's sleep. Dont look any further.. you wont regret it ! :)

We were sent to this hotel because the was a problem with a gas line in the area of our original hotel. They couldn't have been more helpful. The room was lovely, the location was great. Really could not ask for more.

We found Kumru using Trip Advisor and were glad we did. From my first contact with Melissa I knew this was the type of place we wanted to stay: helpful, authentic, and comfortable. The rooms were just what we needed: clean, efficient, with good beds. Yes, the bathrooms are very small, but that is the way of the world. We were happy to adapt. The rooftop breakfast was hearty, delicious, and accompanied by good, strong coffee and a wonderful view.

We especially appreciated the suggestions and assistance of Melissa and Abdul. We had a few unscheduled days before joining our tour and wanted to see some "non-touristy" aspects of the city. Melissa suggested a wonderful ferry trip up the Golden Horn. Abdul eagerly assisted us in purchasing a metro card for transit.

If you want comfort coupled with great location and helpful insights into Istanbul, stay at Kumru. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed here six nights on our visit to Turkey: three nights on our arrival in Istanbul, three more nights after touring the country. We decided to return to the Kumru upon our return because we were so happy with everything about the hotel: from its location in a quiet neighborhood in the Sultanahmet, to its beautiful new rooms, to the wonderful breakfast we had each morning, but most importantly, to the warmth of Melissa and Abdul and all the staff of the Kumru. They made going out each morning and coming home each night, like leaving our own home. Overall it was a wonderful experience.
