Elanaz Hotel Istanbul

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Having just spent four nights at Elanaz Hotel we can't recommend it highly enough. The location made getting around to see all the sights so easy, whether you are walking or wish to catch the tram, everything is very accessible. Our room was fantastic, spotlessly clean and having a fridge in the room was very handy. But what makes any Hotel special is always the staff and Elanaz staff were absolutely delightful, always happy and there to help. Thank you so much for making our stay in Istanbul one that we will always remember.

The best hotel to see all the tourist attractions. Walking distance for major tourist landmarks. The hotel staff is very friendly and kind, specially the lady who makes breakfast.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable.
This is your best choice for a boutique hotel.

When we checked in as it wasn't full we were offered a free upgrade. Nice introduction to a basic hotel that does everything very well. The staff were friendly & helpful eg) offering to take a mobile phone to get a new screen and serving breakfast early on the day of our departure.

Great staff, nice rooms with wifi, close to many tasty restaurants and several historical sites. You can walk to the water, to the ferry, to the "palace," and many other interesting places. Staff will direct you, call for a taxi, etc.

The only reason I'd give this property three stars is because the staff are SO AMAZING and the location is great. In the States this property is like an older Motel 6 for some comparison- a cheap, road side motel. My room had weird stains on the comforter, black dirty mildew or something in the shower and the beds were very uncomfortable. I kept wondering how on earth the hotel had the high reviews it did. Confusing. The rate was very good but honestly, there are so many good deals in Istanbul that you can stay in a great place without spending much more than this and be very comfortable. I'm sorry Elanaz but I was beyond disappointed in the accommodations. Luckily we were only there for 2 nights so I didn't have to stay long but would have been very upset had I stayed any longer.

Dear guest,
We are really sorry to hear about your "bad"experience and disappointment in our hotel. We wish that you have shared your complaints during your stay which could be solved right away. We are an award winning hotel for 2 years and we are really working hard to keep this. Therefore your review was a total unfairness for us and also for our all guests who put us into an award winning category. You have complained about our cleanliness on which we pay extra attention. We also want to remind you that you refused our housekeeping service during your stay so we could not clean your room. We hope that you could stay another time in our hotel to experience what "you have missed".

Best Regards,
Managing Director

We had two nights here in a small, but very adequate, room facing the Bosphorus. As we had become accustomed to in Turkey by now, our host was extremely helpful and attentive. It was an easy walk to Aya Sofya, the Blue Mosque, the ferry terminal, the Spice Market and the Grand Bazaar. It was also close to the bus terminus to enable us to commute to Chora Church and the Old City walls. Definitely a convenient place to stay, maybe a larger room if you are staying longer than a couple of days would be better though. Ours was a double room with a sea view.

My wife and I spend 4 nights at the Elinaz. The room was spotless and comfortable, location is superb, in a small and quite street right in the old city of Istanbul. Especially I would like to mention the hospitality of the owner who went out of his way to ensure we are having a good stay. He recommended places to go and how to get there and was attentive to any request we had.
Overall we highly recommend the Elinaz to those who appreciate small and intimate hotels and excellent location.
