“Value for money at great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

I was looking forward to my 3rd stay at this wonderfull hotel, and was again not disappointed. Although it had been a couple of years since my last visit, the excellent and friendly reception staff remembered that I had stayed there before, and it was like a "home away from home".Service in all departments was terrific, location terrific, walking distance to a lot of places including the Grand Bazaar, and why would you want to stay away from this area and attempt to go everywhere by taxi, when traffic is the way it is in Istanbul. Walking is by far the best way to get around.
This hotel goes out of its way to make travellers feel at home with small things such as complementary Turkish Delights in the rooms and a gift tin of chocolates at check out.
For a good hotel at a reasonable price, I recommend the Eresin Crown, and I will be staying there again on my next visit to Istanbul

If you don't fancy taxi rides in Istanbul traffic stay here. Mhemet, the front desk manager, was extremely helpful as was all his staff. We had 2 stays with 4 days between and Eresin Crown safely stored our 2 suitcases at no charge. The bell man was courteous and prompt and always had a smile. Breakfast buffet was a treat. Not only was the food excellent and the choices varied but the view from the roof terrace is amazing. You can walk to Topkapi, Ayasofia, The Blue Mosque and the Archeological Museum in less than 15 minutes. There are several restaurants in the area that were good. There is even a gift shop on the left corner (face the hotel and walk to your left) whose owner was scrupulously honest and has lovely things for sale. I will review the 2 restaurants next week so look for my reviews..

Room Tip: rooms are European style small but bathroom is roomy.

I just returned from a four night stay at the Eresin Crown in Sultanahmet. I loved this hotel! The location was amazing! Just minutes on foot to the Blue Mosque, the Basilik Cisterns, Aghia Sophia and more. The staff were very professional and friendly, my room was spacious and very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was excellent. I will definitely stay again if/when I return to this amazing city!

Room Tip: My room was facing the street so with the doors to the balcony open, it could be a little noisy, so...

Most of the comment on this site are true. It is a nice little hotel with a great location. The rooms are clean and the service is indeed good. However, it is very small and dated. If the Four Seasons is a five star, this can be no higher than a three. Honestly, if a "two" on this site were not labeled as "poor" I might have gave it that rating. However, it is not poor, but it certainly not higher than average. The rooms are very small and cramped and two persons will find themselves stepping over each other mosh of the time. Our luggage, a 20 inch wheelie would not fit in the closet. I have found the rating on this site pretty good in the past, but this time it has mislead me.

Dear David,
Thank you very much for your comments. I am so sorry that you were disappointed with your stay at Eresin Crown but I would like to correct something about our hotel rating that you confused. Our hotel is registered as a Special Deluxe Category Hotel by Turkish Tourism Ministry office. It means that it is something so unique and different than other hotels in the city. Eresin Crown is the first and only registered museum hotel in all over Turkey. Turkey’s only Boutique Museum hotel, located in the heart of the city next to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Overlooking the Princes Island and Marmara Sea. Surrounded by the history and architectural masterpieces of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman times. Istanbul’s fascinating past combines with present-day comfort, only at Eresin Crown. 49 various historical art pieces from the Roman, Hellenistic and Byzantine time including a cistern and a mosaic were found during the construction phase of the hotel " aged from 2. - 3. B.C. to 5. - 6. A. D. centuries'' and all monuments are exhibited in the hotel .A private picture gallery of 168 paintings on the theme of Byzantine and Ottoman life decorate the walls of the Eresin Crown Hotel. A beautiful collection of Iznik porcelain is displayed with Eresin Crown's fascinating finds. Examples of Ottoman Iznik hand crafted porcelains are exact copies of originals dating from 1400-1500 AD.
We are offering to our valued guests to stay at a hotel, where past meets with present.
So I am so sorry that we couldn't meet with your expectations but it is our fault that we couldn't make our self very clear about what kind of hotel we are offering our valued guests. If you would like to stay at a modern building hotel with bigger rooms and many facilities in it than we will be happy to offer you our Eresin Taxim Premier Hotel which is totally different than Eresin Crown and could make you more happier. We really would like to see you at our other Eresin Hotels in the near future in Istanbul to make your next stay enjoyable one.
Best regards,

My husband and I stayed at Eresin Crown Hotel from 26 - 28 June. We arrived by taxi from Ataturk Airport. (50TL)
Sadly two nights were not enough to fully enjoy this absolute gem which offered us a true 5 star stay with impeccable service from the staff and management.
This amazing hotel is also a museum with the remains of architectural works displayed and incorporated into the hotel, which makes this hotel even more unique! (Do not miss the mosaic displayed in the parquet floor of the Mosaic Restaurant and do take time to read the complimentary book in your room about the hotel)
We stayed in a double deluxe room which was tastefully decorated, spacious, sparkling clean, comfortable and equipped and supplied with everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. A pillow menu was even provided to ensure a restful and comfortable night's sleep. We loved the Turkish Delight in our room!
Breakfast was ample and tasteful and served at the rooftop restaurant. The view of the sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque was just breathtaking with seagulls flying and squawking far above our heads to complete this amazing view!
If you visit Istanbul, Sultanahmet district with all it's rich and diverse history and culture is the place to stay and we found Eresin Crown the perfect hotel in every aspect to explore and enjoy this beautiful area!
On our last day we checked out after breakfast (we only had a light night flight back home) and our luggage was safely stored by the friendly staff. We returned late afternoon (exhausted after a long day of captivating as much as possible from this wonderful city) and we were given a room to freshen up and change clothes before our pick up to the airport (arranged effortlessly by the hotel).
We were truly impressed by this gesture, our overall experience of this marvelous hotel and last but not least the heartfelt friendliness from the porter who carried our luggage to the taxi and gave us the warmest goodbye!
We will return to Istanbul for many more visits and Eresin Crown will be without hesitation the only hotel to stay!!

Room Tip: You can request a smoking or non smoking room

We spent 4 days in Istanbul and this hotel has a perfect location to visit this amazing city especially if it’s your first stay in Istanbul. You are in the center of the old city and the Blue Mosque is just 3 minutes away by feet. The rooms are clean and sober. Nothing special about the breakfast but it’s ok. Nice rooftop terrace.

We have been to Istanbul many times and it is probably our favorite city in the world. So much history, such a variety of landscapes with the Bosphorus and Sea of Marmara. We find the area around Taksim overcrowded and too much unfinished construction. The Ciragan Palace is perfect but quite expensive. The Eresin Crown is so homely and perfectly located in the
historic Sultanahmet area. We can see the iluminated minarets of the Blue Mosque from our window, watch the seagulls flying overhead as we dine on the roof with a great view of the Sea of Marmara. The hotel itself is really charming with part of the original city walls lovingly preserved in the lobby area. Only 5 minutes walk from Divan Yolu. Very friendly service and lovely rooms. We will be back ...many times hopefully.

Room Tip: The corners suites are worth the additional cost
