The location of Erguvan Hotel is hard to beat. It's only minutes away by foot to the Blue Mosque. The nearest tram station is 7 minutes away and you can walk to the Grand Bazaar. Also, the breakfast spread is heavenly -- Fresh-baked breads, made to order omelette, assortment of cheeses, fresh juice, and several superb varieties of olives.

However, what sets Erguvan Hotel apart from the rest is its cleanliness. The mattress and bed sheets didn't smell like mildew and the upscale amenities in the bathroom were spotless.

It pays to be friendly with the staff because they'll take care of all your sightseeing and travel requests. The receptionist suggested a sightseeing itinerary, highlighted the best routes to take, and wrote the customary cab fares on the map. Tell the taxi driver how much you are willing to pay to your destination BEFORE you get into the cab. Unless you are Chuck Norris or very adventurous, don't go out solo after dark.

Room Tip: Rooms to the interior of the hotel are generally quieter. Show up early for breakfast when everything is fresh.

We stayed here for one night to fly out the next morning early, after a week in Istanbul and a few weeks down the southern coast. It's not big, or modern. It doesn't have a pool, or a gym, or a hamman, and the lift is the smallest on earth.
What is does have on the 6th floor is an intoxicating view over the Bosphorus, esp early in the morning when it looks like glass, before the ferries and container ships have turned the route into a ship's freeway. Or late at night — twinkling nights against a dark sky.
The staff are more than accommodating and v helpful.
It's small and sweet with lovely people, in an easy-to-find location just below the walls of old town, close to everything including the tram to take you to Taxim etc.
In a word charming. Would stay here again without question.

Hotel is in a great location, approx 5 minute walk to major attractions in the Sultanahmet area. Taxi drivers found the location difficult to find so make sure you have the address with you. The breakfast is basic but enough to get you off to a good start. The staff were very helpful and assisted with booking restaurants/tours etc. The rooms are large with air conditioning. The view from the restaurant is lovely although does not provide the view of the Blue Mosque as pictured (at least I couldn't find it).

Hotel Erguvan is a wonderful place to stay in Istanbul. You are in the heart of Old Town, close to the major historical sites. In fact, walk out on the patio during breakfast, look up, and there is the Blue Mosque.
The staff is friendly and helpful. We had a mix up in meeting a local person, and the manager called the person immediately to explain the situation.
Our room was on the front of the hotel, where there is a lot of traffic and noise. We enjoyed being observers of the activity, and at night, when we closed the windows, it was amazingly quiet! Of course, you may hear the call to prayer, but why come to Istanbul and stay in the old city if you don't want any changes in your routine.
The Erguvan offers a great value, clean room, good breakfast. Wish we could go back next year!

Wonderful small,friendly hotel in a great location. The staff were great and the views from the rooftop terrace were truly amazing. There is an excellent breakfast buffet where you can eat and look out at the sea or the blue mosque. Easy walking distance to all the sights in Sultanahmet. Just a lovely hotel!
