“well located”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

The best quality of this hotel is the position: it is located in the city center, very close to the Topkapi and to the other monuments; it is also very close to a populated restaurants' zone.
The room was not very large, but it was a standard hotel room: clean and comfortable.
The breakfast buffet was satisfying.
The staff was helpful and kind.

We thought this hotel to be a little gem in the heart of exotic Istanbul. The service was friendly and helpful. Our request for quiet rooms, high floor was suitably met and although the rooms were on the small side, they were perfectly adequate considering our budget. The attached restaurant served an excellent meal as did another restaurant we dined in which was owned by the same hotel group. The location was ideal within easy walking distance of all the major sights in Sultanahmet. The discount offered along with the free transport from the airport (booked through the hotel's web site) made this hotel also even better value.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room, high floor

We were recommended this hotel by Avios staff and they were right. Excellent location - close to all principal sites and good transport connections to other istanbul districts. Inclusive breakfast was delicious- fresh food including such delights as honey comb. The restaurant served good Ottoman food in the evening. There is a lovely roof terrace bar where you can see the beautiful istanbul skyline and enjoy a cold beer. The room was basic but clean and comfortable and included a safe. The desk taff were extremely helpful with tourist information. At the end of my trip I absentmindedly left a pair of souvenier leather slippers in my room .I emaled when I got back to England expecting to hear nothing. The hotel send a picture of my shoes asking if they were mine nd returned them to me free of charge. Now THAT's what I call service.

I went there with my children. We had one room for the three of us. The room was big enough. The staff were really nice. The breakfast buffet was very good and my children really liked getting honey straight from the honeycomb... and so did I! We tried the restaurant a few times; the service was excellent, and the food was really good, a bit expensive but well worth it. The location of the hotel was very convenient. You just had to walk for 2 minutes to get to the tramway, and you were merely 5 to 10 minutes away on foot from the major historical sights. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and if we go back to Istanbul chances are we will book at the same hotel. By the way, I bought my Museum Pass at the hotel when I arrived there... another convenient thing.

We made the reservation on the hotels website and had a free pick up from Ataturk airport. The pick up worked very good, quite new MB van with good driver. Before our stay we got useful information from Ms. Ayse Sancak. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. In the breakfast room was every morning Sircesi daily Express; weather report, information about Turkey, what is happening today, hints where to eat lunch( not only Sircesi group restaurants!) etc.
Hotel Erboy has a very good restaurant Pasazade, we had an excellent dinner there. Try also restaurant Imbat with a splendid view to Bosphorus and Red River pub is a nice place to have one Efes.

The Erboy Hotel is a friendly welcoming place. My room was simple but comfortable and overlooked a charming street. The hotel restaurant specialised in ottoman style food that is
excellent. The included breakfast was also pretty good.The location is great in terms of tourist sites and within 3 minutes of the easy to use trams. The staff are helpful and knowlegeable and there is always someone available to give directions. I will certainly stay at The Erboy next time I go to Istanbul.

the hotel is very basic. room was somewhat smallish but the bed is comfortable. aircon works. bathroom functional.
exceptional customer service. everyone greets you.
the breakfast area can get congested - a lot of people seem to book this place bec of good review i guess!! food is basic - more than American Continental breakfast. they would have 1-3 varieties of fruits (which is rarely offered in some other hotel). they have fresh honey for the 4 days i stayed there --- yummy !!!
corridors leading to lifts are a little narrow - BUT hey we are in Europe where more space means more money.
the rooftop is a good place to unwind - have dinner there. price is reasonable for the view you get.
Gulhane tram station is 5 min walk -NICE. This tram will connect you to basically anywhere you want to go in IStanbul.

The free internet works - BIG PLUS
