We stayed at the Erboy last week for 4 nights after checking out reviews on TA.
The hotel was even better than expected, with a good sized room overlooking the street, bedding changed frequently & fresh towels everyday, but I wouldn't fancy a room facing the yard! a bit dark & no view at all.
The staff were top notch, the breakfasts were very plentiful & varied with something hot every day, usually scrambled & boiled eggs & sausages (frankfurter style ) + chips !
toast, fresh fruit, yoghurt, bread, ham etc etc.
Eating out places in the pedestrianised street at the rear of the hotel were good, but more pricey about 80 TL for 2 (incl. a drink each), further along at the locantas you can eat real turkish food at half the price but no alcohol. The hotel terrace restaurant was splendid with amazing views over Istanbul..don't miss it !
Opposite the Erboy is the Maestro pizza & pasta parlour... very reasonable, Mehmet is a real nice guy, but again no alcohol. there is a pub (sports bar type) at the end of the street.....we bought a half of Efes pils + a glass of white wine for 18 TL !,we sent the wine back as it was undrinkable, the manager offered my wife a free glass of red which was OK....fair enough.
It is only about 400yds to the ferry terminal & the same to the two mosques & Topkapi so the hotel is in an excellent position, overall we were well pleased with everything & can recommend this hotel & indeed Istanbul wholeheartedly....
PS. don't miss the Bosphorus trip on the Ferry & get there about 45 mins early !
