“Outstanding Accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

My husband and I have just returned from a week holiday in Istanbul where we stayed at the outstanding Elanaz Hotel. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the attentiveness of the staff. We were immediately offered an upgrade on our room and the room we were given had a spectacular view of the Bospherous (chocolates had also been left in the room!). Our room was a comfortable size and included; a flatscreen TV, all furniture was of good quality (and in pristine condition), many extras provided in the bathroom e.g. dressing gowns, slippers, lovely soaps etc and the bathroom was a very good size and had a great shower. Each day our room was cleaned to a high standard and complimentary fruit was left in our room. The breakfast each day was lovely and the lady who cooks breakfast each morning was incredibly friendly. She made a variety of baked goods each morning and on one morning we were a little late for breakfast, but she didn't mind at all and cooked my husband an omelet. The hotel arranged very convenient transport to and from the hotel for us and on departure, they presented us with a gift. The location of the hotel is excellent - all the must-see sights are within walking distance and there is a train station and tram station very, very close to the hotel. The hotel is also surround by numerous cafes, bars and restaurants. In our opinion, the hotel is truly exceptional - we couldn't have asked for more and, on reflection of the great price we paid, this really is the best value we have ever experience - an exceptional experience for a budget price. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul and would definitely stay here again when I return to Istanbul. I would like to thank all of the staff at the Elanaz Hotel their hospitality and for making our holiday very special!

I am writing this review sitting in the lobby sipping tea about to leave after staying ten days at this hotel. This hotel is hands down the best value I have ever experienced. The entire hotel is very modern and very tastefully decorated. The rooms are extremely functional with lots of outlets (something important in this era when we have to recharge so many things every night) great unobtrusive lighting, and every luxury a hotel should have, from robes and slippers to shoe polish.

But the real value of the hotel was the staff from the owner and his wife, to Ferhad,Kubra and Serdars, and wonderful motherly woman who made huge delicious homemade breakfasts every morning. This morning she gave me a sweet roll that was hot right out of the oven. I felt more like a member of the family than a guest. I also received great advice for all sorts of things.

As others have noted the location could not have been better. Walk to lots of things, easy public transportation for the rest. This hotel is really a super-value boutique property.

Room Tip: I had a room on the third floor and could still glimpse the Golden Horn from a window.

A nice little hotel in an excellent location. Rooms clean and nicely decorated. Staff very helpful. Breakfast more than acceptable for this price range. All in all a hotel that offers very good value. Not sure why it is listed in the B & B section though.

Walking distance from all the must-see sights, close to fabulous restaurants, walking distance from the tram station, fantastic modern rooms, great breakfasts and above all, impeccable service! It made our stay in Istanbul so much more special.

Great location, staff, room, and breakfat with everyday at least one delicious home made item. Owner's attention makes you think you are the only guest. Lots of good restaurants around. Two metro stations nearby. Marmaray "Sirkice station" two minutes away to be in asian side of Istanbul in 10 minutes total.

Room Tip: sea view or partially sea view room will add a lot to your vacation

This really is a gem, can only confirm what others said... a nice and clean hotel, good location, very kind and helpful people, from staff to the owners, but especially great chef - a wonderful lady that surprised us the last morning with delicious pancakes, when they were not on the menu, just because she noticed previously we like them a lot :) Many thanks and many regards to all!

A small boutique hotel at the heart of Sirkeci. Family owned and operated, very friendly and helpful staff, clean and petite rooms. Well-worth the money. Highly recommended for individuals, small families, and individuals.
