“exceeded expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2009

An excellent base for staying in Istanbul,on a quiet street within easy walking distance to the historic centre, very convenient for the tram. Rooms small but had everything required. Reception staff extremely helpful and knowledgable, received discount, free evening meal in restaurant and airport transfer for booking direct with hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here in Nov 2008 with a friend. Location is in the touristy part of Istanbul, within walking distance to many of the great attractions and close to the train stop. The hotel staff was great - concierge sat us down on the first day and helped us plan out our three days in Istanbul to maximise the visit. She kept checking in with us to see how everything was going, and offered excellent advice and recommendations on local restaurants and shopping venues. The rest of the hotel staff were great - helped us out with a number of things. Breakfast was very comprehensive and yummy - eggs, fresh fruit, toast, pastries, yogurt. Rooms were comfortable and we were upgraded to a triple so we had room to spread out a bit. Very clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but great value and excellent service! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!

The hotel is in the best possible location there is! Everything is near, the major sights, nice restaurants, tramway, the harbour for sightseeing cruises. And still the hotel itself is in a quiet street!
The staff is absolutely fantastic, the most friendly, nice and helpful. The hotel is clean and the rooms are comfortable. Food is excellent and the breakfast was huge!
I definately come back here next year with my friends again! Fabulous time here!!

In easy walking distance of all the main sights and the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle that is Istanbul. Quiet, clean rooms. Fantastic food, friendly, helpful staff and an amazing roof terrace. I would recommend this hotel unreservedly and plan to return again in the near future.

This is my second staying in Erboy Hotel.

The location:
It is situated at the heart of Old Istanbul. Blue Mosque facing to Hagia Sophia are in 10 minutes walking distance. Famous Eminonu Square, New Mosque, Spice Bazaar and Covered Bazaar which are famous historical interest zone in the vicinity nearer than a mile. Galata Bridge and famous fish restaurants are very attractive and fun especially in nights. Fish&Bread is offered in the boats fixed to quay, really a great fun. The old fashioned channel passenger boats are still running along and acrossing Istanbul Channel. Golden horn is also in close distance to the hotel.

Hotel overall:
Very good, polite and professional personnel from front-desk to room service, high quality breakfast both in content and service, regular daily room service and changing linens and towels, sanitized WC, all time hot water available for bath, free internet on lobby, problem-free elevators, fantastic roof-restaurant and bar especially in the night, spectacular Istanbul night view in the panorama.
And, superb restaurant especially for dinners. Delicious food and good wine service.
The only negative side for Erboy Hotel is the size of the room. The rooms are small. But, clean, tidy, practically designed and decorated.

For staying at Erboy Hotel, it deserves every penny to what you will get.

This hotel is a "gem", I hate to spend a lot on hotels since I was visiting numerous European cities so I needed a nice clean place that was centrally located to all the major attractions. "Erboy" hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. This is a 3 star hotel with 6 star service. Location is simply great, within walking distance of almost every attraction. The hotel is also easy to reach by local Metro and Tram from the international airport. The people who work in the hotel will do everything to please you, VERY clean rooms, free internet in the lobby along with computer. This hotel clientele is mostly European so do not expect the American hoopla. However, I will gladly stay at this place and have recommend this place to my friends. Everything written about the hotel manager is TRUE, she is wonderful and helpful. Hotel offers a very tasty breakfast buffet.

Erboy hotel a value for your money type of hotel. Not only is it located near most of the famous sights in Istanbul it is also 5 min away from the nearest Tram station that brings you to almost any part of the city. This is one hotel I'll definitely go back to. Very clean and the service is great. Highly recommended!
