“Simple boutique hotel in the heart of Istanbul”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Rated as 5*, this was hardly so...however, it did have its good points and I would recommend it. I stayed here for six nights over new year. The service was good, especially the reception staff who couldn't have been more helpful. The food was lovely and the ambiance delightful. Room -wise, we had two for our family and both were small, clean with adequate storage but the temperature was either too hot or too cold despite the temperature control readings. During our stay the internet connection was not working so we were unable to use our ipads nor even the one communal hotel computer. This was frustrating as we wanted to do research on our trips and the sights that there were to see as well as find good eateries. Loved the new year meal in the hotel but some music and belly dancing would have created more atmosphere and justified the price. This hotel is centraly located but has no hammam nor gym. .

Room Tip: Rooms furthest away from the mosque will obviously be quieter.

Loved this location and hotel. Walking distance to all the main attractions and bazaars. Very happy with the rooms although they un helpfully would not guarantee an adjoining room with the kids. Worked out ok but if we had not had this it would have changed our experience.
Lovely rooftop bar and restaurant with 360degree views of Bosporus, Sea of Marmara and blue mosque.
The lobby has its own roman ruins excavated on site from old emperors palace.
Overall a very nice place to stay in a safe part of a great city.

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute. Staff were a delight and very helpful. The hotel is located in a very interesting and important part of Istanbul. Easy to walk to all the important sites and many restaurants in the old town. Breakfast on the room terrace was a highlight with a wonderful view of the Bosphorus and old ruins of Istanbul. Our room was lovely but very small however this is a feature of hotels in this part of the city; the upside is the convenience of all the great locaions closeby. The hotel uncovered ancient ruins during some building work and they are displayed throughout the hotel. Would return to this hotel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

We had a drink at sunset each night on the rooftop and breakfast all but one morning. The views are just lovely -to the sea and back to the Blue Mosque.
The rooms were a bit strange. We were upgraded to a suite -but this had a tiny bedroom, opening to table and chairs and lounge -through which you had to walk to get to the bathroom -quite a hike! This was really unused space!
We asked for a view -so were on the 4th floor and could just see the Mosque and some sea glimpses -so anything lower could not get much of a view. I guess the rooftop made up for this though!
The area was pleasant except in the mornings when the tour buses roared past on their way to the sites!

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor

We stayed here a couple of nights on our second visit to Istanbul. The hotel is close to the most important sites of the Old City, yet quiet at night once the tour buses retrieve to their lairs. View from the roof terrace of the Marmara sea to the Blue Mosque and Obelisk is a must; too cool for dinning in November, would be great in summer.
The concierge was genuinely helpful when looking for advice on dinning, getting around and shopping. He arranged for a visit to a family run established carpet merchant who did not pressure us, had a nice collection and was quite reasonable when it came to price. Good breakfast. One beef, rooms are on the small size and unfortunately have a mild lingering odour of tobacco smoke.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smiling room

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your kind comments about Eresin Crown Hotel. It was so nice to have you at Eresin Crown. I would like to give you a brief info about our smoking rooms. There are only 15 smoking bed rooms available at our hotel at the same floor, I am not sure why you had a smell of Tobacco in your room but if we made a mistake and give you a smoking room to stay, I am very sorry about it. I have already informed all our stuff about your comment and we will be more careful on this subject for our valuable guests.
Once again, It was our pleasure to have you at our hotel. We do hope to see you soon at Eresin Crown Hotel.
Best regards,

We are staying at the hotel now. This place is great. Yes the room is small but it is lovely with lots of little attentions - free bottled water, sweets, slippers etc.
The building is very attractive and the neighborhood is cute as can be - clean, safe and a 3 min walk from the major historical section.
Breakfast is very complete and the lattes are perfect. There is bread, cereal, pastries, fruit (lots of choices) yogurt, eggs etc.
the staff are so nice. Very friendly and helpful.
Great choice
I'm using the free wifi to write this.

Room Tip: Ask for forth floor to have view of Blue Mosque

The major attraction to this hotel is its location in the old section of Istanbul. It is a short walk to Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome and the Hagia Sophia. The upgraded rooms face the street, but surprisingly there was little noise at night. The standard rooms face the back of the hotel. The front rooms were spacious and had a reasonable sized bathroom. The shower had the European style short glass panel that failed to block the water from the shower from making a mess on the floor even if you aimed the showerhead directly down. In decent weather breakfast is served on a roof top terrace with a magnificent view. Breakfast is ample with hot and cold offerings, but I did not see anything cooked to order. Wi-Fi is free, but drops off and requires reentering the access code frequently. This was a problem for all 5 couples in our group. The major reasons to stay in this hotel are location and the rooftop breakfast.
