“Very nice stay in Istanbul”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

No real complaints here regarding the hotel and room, and based on previous stays in Istanbul I think this is a great value place. One special feature of this place are all the wonderful carpets and kilims in our room and throughout the hotel. My wife has a preference for tile and wood floors, so enjoyed our room for this. Our bathroom was very basic and though large was rather depressing so the only negative (also after a very rainy day, nothing left in the bathroom was dry in the morning). We had a triple room that had two TV's, didn't use them but our son was excited to have his own options. The breakfast room was fantastic for the view and the food. Service was excellent from lobby to terrace and we would not hesitate to stay here again. The location is great, and though we were next to a somewhat busy one-way street road noise was minimal and not a bother at all....easy walk to the Grand Bazaar, Arrasta Bazaar, and the rest of Sultanahmet.

I thought that the hotel had a lovely location right in the heart of Istanbul next to the blue mosque. At first I thought the room was a bit dark but settled in quickly and that did not matter. The room was basic but very clean, warm, and comfortable.

The staff are lovely and very helpful and came straight away when I had a problem with my hair drier!

The breakfast rooftop had fab views, was very relaxing with a nice selection of food. Fab stay would definitely recommend if you're looking for comfort without all the extras!

We stayed 6 nights the last week in September and when we arrived and opened the door to our room we were extremely happy with our choice for Istanbul. The location couldn't be better. You are steps from the Hippodrome and its surrounding sites plus walking distance to anywhere in Sultanhamet. From check in to check out and everything in between, the staff were friendly, professional and most helpful when we required it.

I booked a "deluxe" category room directly with the hotel via e-mail. On arrival, reception provided us with a map and guidance about the sites. Our room was charming, spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and I comment because when staying 6 nights you very much hope for a comfortable mattress.

Breakfast is served on the rooftop by two very efficient and professional men. I repeat myself when I'm happy with a hotel and reviewing by saying a "hotel is only as good as its management and staff" and it is so true. The breakfast provided boiled eggs, cheeses, tomatoes, cucumbers, meats, scrambled eggs, cereal, "delicious" fresh bread, yogurt and honey and more. The rooftop is a very enjoyable start to your day.

We loved Hotel Fehmi Bey and would definitely return to this hotel. Thank you to the staff for helping to make our first visit to Istanbul so enjoyable.

Gorgeous terrace and breakfast area, good service, good staff retention. The wine is good, and the service fantastic. The rooms are well-decorated, clean and comfortable. The view from the terrace of the old Theodesian Harbor is spectacular. Out of the major hubbub of Sultanahmet, but easily accessible by foot.

Hotel staff is perfect, friendly and willing to help in each sense. Wonderful terrace with perfect view. Fantastic location for visiting the most important touristic locations in the old Istanbul, really just step away from the Blue Mosque, St. Sophia, Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar. Clean rooms friendly people in there. What else needed more.

I have stayed in this hotel on many occasions and love the central location and the staff. It is a family run place which is much warmer and more personal than chain hotels. Staff remembered me from one stay to the next and were really helpful if I had problems locating an address or reading something in Turkish. Great value for the money. Just minutes from all Sultanahmet area attractions. Breakfast on the roof has a fabulous view of the Marmara and the Blue Mosque.

We found Fehmi Bey at the Internet, as we were searching for a cheepish hotel in Sultan Ahmed with a good roof terrace. And we were not disapointed.
The hotel has a family feel to it. The staff in the reception were always helpful, and the room was kept clean and tidy. We stayed in the family appartement on the 1:st floor. No particular view, and rather boring with nothing on the walls. However, this was compensated by the spacious bed rooms and, in particular, the wast living room. Great for kids running around.
The location close to the ancient Hipodrome and the Blue Mosque is perfect, with spectacular views of the mosque, Haga Sofia, and the Bosphorus from the roof terrace. The terrace is a lovely place to spend a lot of time, reading or enjoying the hotel's excellent breakfast.
