Just returned from a 4 night stay and the hotel was a perfect base for our 1st stay in Istanbul and we will use again on our next visit.

From the moment we arrived to very welcome cold drinks all the staff especially Guest relations & reception personnel, cleaners and the rooftop terrace barman were attentive, friendly and professional.

The room has all the facilities you require comfortable bed, good powerful shower, a/c, safe & wifi.

Breakfast was fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereal, bread & pastries, cheese & cold meats and about 4 hot dishes (eggs, sausages etc).

The meal at the Pasazade restaurant (see separate review) on our 1st night was an ottoman feast & the best of our stay in Istanbul, Included in our booking as a welcome dinner.

The rate was very reasonable and we then got a 7% discount for paying in cash.

The rooftop terrace was visited during the day, at dusk and at night and has great views of the Bosporus and City.

Location wise you are 10 minutes walk to the major sites of Sultanahmet and on top of a tram stop.

Will definitely return.

We were really impressed with this hotel overall. We stayed for 3 nights. Our room seemed to have had a recent renovation and was very nicely done. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The hotel was within walking distance to many of the major sights and a tram ride away from others further out. Recommend an early start for the included breakfast bar downstairs as the food disappears quickly. Evenings were enjoyed on the roof top terrace watching the sunset over the beautiful city. We had a very early check out and we missed out on the included breakfast. One of the staff members brought us some sandwiches so we would have something to eat as we traveled. We thought the hotel was a wonderful value and definitely recommend.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 4th floor.

I was in Istanbul a year ago and I spent 7 nights at the Erboy Hotel. I have chosen this hotel because of good reviews .
My room was faced to Ebusud cad. and that is why it was a bit noisy . ( I couldn't fall asleep with open window ) . The air conditioning was hard to regulation. In the room was too hot or too cold . The room was very small for two people. When you put your luggage on the floor it was hard to move.( it is common for most hotels in Istanbul ). The bathroom needs a bit renovation. Anyway, it's still a good choice because of its location, very close to most popular tourist spots, tram station is also very close. The breakfast was of great variety and delicious. Everyday you can find in a room a complimentary bottle of water, instant tea and coffee. Room was cleaned up each day .the Staff was very friendly and helpfully, they arranged a taxi for the airport and gave lots of tips about the sightseeing. Book on the hotel website to get a cash disount and free one way transport from the airport.

Room Tip: rooms faced to the street are a bit noisy.

My sister and I stayed at the Erboy Hotel for nine nights. I chose this place based on other reviews posted on Tripadvisor. Could not have made a better choice! The location was, of course, perfect. A short walk to the tram station and reasonable distance (for those of us who are 55+ years and slow walkers) to the main attractions in Istanbul. The staff was courteous and very helpful, especially those at the Reception. They helped us plan many enjoyable trips in and around Istanbul. They gave us a free city map and explained the tram system clearly. We used the tram for most of our excursions in Istanbul. We enjoyed the terrace bar with its fabulous views. One evening it got a little chilly, but they provided us with soft (clean) blankets, so we lingered. The food at their restaurant, Pasazade. was excellent. We also had some great meals in some of the many restaurants close to the hotel. This area is probably the best place to stay for first time visitors to Istanbul. Gives one a nice sampling of what Istanbul has to offer.

Room Tip: Let the people at the Reception know what you want or need, and they will do everything possible to...

Very nice hotel....best location ever...walking distance from all historical places,one minute from tram station that connects you to all Istanbul till airport.breakfast is nice..but the same for 4 days without any change,very helpful staff and also funny :)
Room was clean,small and Cousy,i guess thats european style room.but we enjoyed it and they had everything prepared as requested.
Only thing i complained about was the roof terrace,they didn't have good isolation so you could hear every single step above you,but the promised they will fix that soon
Airport transfer was in time and had a sign with our names.
Pay in cash to get a 7 percent discount.
Will return back to it definitely next time.

Room Tip: Stay a way from 5th floor specially room 502/503 as you will feel every single step above you on the...

When we was the first time in Erboy Hotel, we knew, that we come back there. Our knowledge of languages is very bad, but the personnel is very kind and helpful. Our room have been always clean and breakfast is good. We have been in Erboy Hotel six times and we are going back in august.

This was a great hotel, spotless, nice rooms, helpful pleasant staff and reasonably priced.
The location is great, 2 minute walk to the tram service, 10 minute walk to the waterfront, 10 minute walk to the Blue Mosque and nearby sights. The complimentary dinner in the hotel was superb, with no limitations on what you could choose. The bar/ terrace is great with a panoramic view over the city and down to the Bosphorous. Drink prices are also reaonable, much cheaper than the bar beside the tram station which should be avoided. The terrace is a great place to relax and watch the sunset.

The pick up and drop off service to the airport was also very efficient. Allow yourself plenty of time at the airport for, security and passport control. It is a very, very busy airport with lots of queues.

Would highly recommend this hotel.
