Reviewed 18 March 2014

We have holidayed often in Turkey at Olu Deniz, Marmaris, etc, but had always wanted to see Istanbul.
We used trip advisor to chose a hotel with a good location as Istanbul is a very very big busy city
We chose the Seven Hills hotels based upon its ratings and its location
It is perfectly located for tourists less than 400 meters from the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia.
it has spectacular unsurpassed uninterrupted views from the roof top terrace restaurant of the mosque and Hagia on one side, and then the Bosphorous and the Marmara sea on the other side especially stunning on a night time when everything is lit up.
The hotel itself trades as a boutique hotel which some may find a little kitsch at first, but it grows on you.
The towels and bedding were changed every day, the room safe is in the price, there was a large screen TV in the room on which we found BBC news, we had a large balcony (large for Turkey anyway)
The roof top restaurant is very popular with the public and is reasonably priced for its location.
Breakfast is typical Turkish fare though there is no toaster.
We did the big bus tour of Istanbul which is very good, you can be very flexible as to what you want to see, and when you want to see it, rather than booking a guided tour.
The Egyptian spice bazaar is a must see, though be prepared to get lost!
All in all a thoroughly pleasant and impressive holiday and well recommended.

We stayed a few hotels away but used the seven hills amazing roof terrace on 2 out of our 3 night stay as we enjoyed the first time so much. The view is breathe taking and the staff are friendly and helpful. Roughly 50 TLR (£14) for 2 large beers and some nibbles and well worth it as its an experience you will never forget with such an amazing panoramic of Istanbul!

Stayed here from February 27 to March 5. Excellent location. Literally walking distance to all main attractions. Helpful as I was able to go to the Blue Mosque to pray every day while I was there! Breakfast was great, hotel room was clean. Area is safe. Travelled with a friend and we both enjoyed it. Highly recommend this hotel.

Oh yeah, EXCELLENT view of the Marmara sea, AyaSofya, Sultan Ahmet Cami and main entrance to the Topiaki Palace. Will def consider staying there again if I go back - hopefully one day!

Our room made Sisi was AMAZING!

Room Tip: Walls are a bit thin but overall good hotel!

i had previously eaten at the hotel restaurant and rated it one of the top 10 places to have a beer in the world. Absolutely stunning views.
My wife had never visited Istanbul before so I decided this was the perfect opportunity to try the Seven Hills hotel. We arrived and the welcome could not have been better, we were upgraded to arguably one of the best rooms in the hotel on the 4th floor with wrap around balcony on two sides of the hotel. The room is huge with many period features, also ideal for a family room as it can sleep 5 people. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I arranged a business dinner for 8 people on the Saturday evening and everything was perfect and at a reasonable price.
Whether you are a first time visitor or a seasoned traveller to Istanbul, the location cannot be beaten, the views are the best and the food is good. The best part is also the price.

We stayed 17 -19th January 2014

The perfect location to use as a base for exploring the city, the hotel has a rooftop restaurant boasting the best views of Istanbul, including the Hagia Sofya, Blue Mosque, and the Bosphorus. It is within 500m from these sites, and 15 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar (5000 stores).

We were given a room upgrade to one with a balcony, however, the room (405) was rather small (you could not walk around the bed) and the furnishings had definitely seen better days.

However, these issues were more than redeemed by the excellent service received from the hotel staff, especially Burak. They really go out of their way to assist their guests. The staff show genuine concern, and you never feel neglected.

We will definitely stay at Seven Hills Hotel again!

We would highly recommend this hotel if you are going to Istanbul to site-see. The hotel is right in the heart of all the historical sites and also central to lots of shopping and restaurants. The hotel is boutique size and we had great service. The views from the room was nice, but was breath-taking from the roof-top dinning room. The hotel recommended and arranged a personal guide for a one-day tour of all the major sites in the area - which was one of the high-lights of our trip. It was very reasonable and the best way to see everything and really learn about the history and culture.
