“Great Location, Fantastic Staff, Clean and Charming Rooms!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Staying at the Hanedan absolutely made my vacation in Istanbul! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly- by the end of my 5 days there we were all friends. The small hotel has a nice charming feel to it. It's close to everything you'll need to see while in Istanbul- the mosques, just steps from tons of restaurants, cafes, bars, and even the metro-- plus you can always tell taxi drivers to take you to the Four Seasons Hotel which is a great landmark just up the street that everyone will know. The rooms are cleaned daily and quite large. I was there in the winter and the heat was perfect- (digital) adjustable so not too hot or cold. The showers and bathrooms are also quite large and very clean. Breakfast on the roof with a view of Hagia Sophia and the Bosphorus- not to be missed! Hard to believe you can get all of this for such a great price. I even came back through Istanbul and stayed here one more night on my way back home to the states because it is so great. It's more than a hotel, it's a great experience!

We stayed in the Byzantium family room which has two separate bedrooms and a view of the Sea of Marmara. This is a good hotel in an excellent location, an easy stroll to Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque and the tram line. The breakfast is on the roof terrace with a view of the sea. The staff are friendly and can organise tours and airport transfers and give good advice on things to do. This is a great, reasonably priced hotel.

Room Tip: Byzantium Room is the best for families as it is two separate, interconnected rooms. The Ottoman Roo...

We stayed from 10 Sep 13 to 20 Sep 13 . Nice place . good price . helpful staff. Breakfast view is an everlasting memory . its 5 minute walk from beach and from historical places . its almost center of the ancient area. if you buy card bus you can move into the markets area next to blue mosque within 5 min for 2 TRL. Hanedan is a hotel I will of course come back to visit again and recommend.

The entire staff was super friendly. They answered any questions we had and shared great travel tips. We did this trip a lot on the off-beaten path so the staff helped up with directions and general cab fares and bus information.
The rooms were immaculately spotless. Bathrooms were new and the beds were comfortable. We had a great room with windows that overlooked the street and it was very romantic and charming.
The rooftop breakfast was great with fresh coffee and fruit and your traditional turkish breakfast foods.
The view from the roof was incredible! Hello to the Blue Mosque and Bosphurus.
What a value for an incredible stay.

Looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Istanbul was difficult so we were delighted when we found this hotel in such a great location. Only a short walk from Tokapi Palace, Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque, we found the roof top dining room also has great views of the shipping activity etc going on in the Bosphorus. While not large, the bedrooms were convenient with interesting Turkish style decor. The staff were always available to answer any questions we had, provide information, make recommendations and bookings, and talk about what life is like for people living in present day Turkey. We were really appreciative of their efforts to make our stay in Istanbul such a memorable experience. The many restaurants in the area provide a good range of convenient dining options although the pressure selling approaches of some owners could become a bit tiresome for some people.

Spent 8 nights here recently & felt it was very good value for money.

Accommodation is basic but adequate, but what else do you need when you spend most of your time out exploring the city? The room was clean, fresh towels & linens provided regularly, the air conditioning worked, and our room at the back was pretty quiet (I would suggest ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as the wooden floors & thin walls do mean you hear other guests moving about).

Breakfast was fine - a decent cold buffet with juice, tea & coffee. And the views from the rooftop breakfast room & terrace were fantastic.

Great location within 5 mintues walk of the Blue Mosque & the Ayasophia, 10 minutes to the gates to the Topkapi Palace or the T1 tramline, and literally just round the corner from a street with about 30 restaurants on it.

The staff were very friendly & helpful, and the airport pick-up service just takes some of the hassle out of your arrival/departure, particularly when you need to be at the airport for 6.30am on the way home!

I would definitely consider staying here again if we go back to Istanbul.
