“Everything perfect”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Great hotel, very well located, friendly owner (who was there a lot of the time). For me the most important thing is the room, which was very pleasant to stay in. I stayed in the second category, the room was in the 3rd floor, and had a nice view. Keep in mind that one floor below you might have a wall in front of your window.

Room Tip: The Deluxe room instead of the Economy is definitely worth it.

Good location (although not easy to find initially, it is just few paces away from the tram track), few minutes walk from Gulhane / SirkeciTram stops.
Deceptively dull external appearance - but interior is different.
No carpets - great! Clean, with air con and very helpful staff..

Elanaz is a great place to stay in Istanbul. It's in the Sirkeci area, just a short walk from Sultanahmet and a lot of the main tourist attractions (Blue Mosque, AyaSofia, etc). The staff is super friendly, helpful and attentive. We really appreciated all their restaurant and activity suggestions.

The hotel is very new and spotless. The rooms are modern and comfortable (maybe on the small side, but I think that's standard especially in the old town and most major European cities). Lots of extra touches in the bathroom -- big shower, great water pressure!, robes, slippers, toothbrushes, razors, etc!). The A/C worked perfectly which was pretty necessary in July.

We enjoyed breakfast and the homemade cookies and cakes - another nice touch!

We like trying new things but have decided this is where we are coming back to. It is a small hotel - around 13 rooms over 6 floors. That's right, 2 rooms per floor! The rooms are reasonably sized for European hotels but well designed, modern, comfortable with good bathrooms. We had a sea view with a small balcony - you couldn't stand on it but it had opening doors. I would recommend the 5th floor as the 4th is really a partial view over rooftops. Rooms are really well insulated from noise and climate.

The lift is also very small- three was plenty in it. The breakfast room is in the basement and a bit squeezy if more than 8 people come at once (never happened in our 6 days). The Breakfast is fine and the cook provided different cakes/pastries most days.

But the best things about this hotel are its care for its guests and its location. The staff are friendly but not obsequious. Knowledgeable and helpful they make staying here both enjoyable and efficient. Then there is the location - I don't think it can be beaten. Next to the major tram line to all the sights (which are 5-10minutes walk away) , next to the train station and 5 minutes from the major ferry wharves. In the old part of the City, not a place for cars. Many streets are pedestrian only and full of great sights.

The rest of our party stayed in a luxury hotel near the Blue Mosque but loved visiting us. Half the price of theirs and much more personal.

Awesome it was. Brilliant room and staff. Has got an elevator so no trouble going to upper floors. The receptionist helped us figure out where are the places we wanted to visit. The doorman always out there to open the lift's door. 0 disturbance when you are in the room. Comfortable bed. Mood lighting was nice touch. The lobby is cozy in case you have to wait for flight/bus after you checkout.

Although a bit pricey for my budget, the room was brilliant. Breakfast area is a bit small but the meal was excellent. The price of mini bar was high too.

We stayed in this hotel on our visit last March to Istanbul. We immediately feel hospitality from the front desk. Without having to ask, they immediately explained the places in Istanbul with detailed information how to get there.

They even kindly lend us the metro card which definitely helped us to maximize our time in Istanbul.

It doesn't stop there. On my birthday, they left us with a nice piece of birthday cake an white wine. This made our first visit ever to Istanbul, very memorable.

Next time, we come back to Istanbul we definitely return to this hotel.
