“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

I stayed 4 nights in Premist Hotel and I could not have asked for a better place. Location was excellent, being in such close proximity to main attractions. The staff were wonderful, we were lucky to have met Esin and her incredible team who were always willing to help cheerfully. The room was decorated beautifully with the most comfortable bed. Breakfast was lovely. We were very pleased with our hotel choice and would highly recommend it to anyone.

As I said in the title, this hotel is close to perfect!My wife and I recently celebrated our honeymoon in Europe.We travelled to; Amsterdam,Barcelona, Dubrovnik & Istanbul.The Premist Hotel, was hands down the best of all the hotels we stayed in! Esin, the guest relations manager is an absolute lady and made our stay even more enjoyable than we expected.When she realised it was our honeymoon, she upgraded us to a bigger room and organized a complimentary platter for us.This was totally unexpected and very much appreciated.She was available 24/7 for any help and tips to make our stay in Turkey as enjoyable as it was.Her suggestions were excellent and she takes extreme pride in making her guests feel like kings.The Turkish hospitality in general is amazing, but Esin took it to another level.I do not have a bad thing to say about this hotel.Nothing is a problem for anyone.It's clean, convenient and special.It is also located in a superb area which is around the corner from an awesome street filled with many restaurants and bars.The only thing missing is a swimming pool.

Room Tip: Any room at the Premist is special but if possible, try get a room on the top floor with a view of t...

I've decided to write this review in advance because I think that's the right thing to do. My husband and I are at this fabulous place in Istanbul right now and we just l-o-v-e it. It's just an amazing and unique hotel, a hide gem in the city. We love absolutely everything, from the incredible double room (excellent bed!) with a wonderful bathroom (what a shower!) to the delicious breakfast (a feast!) that is kindly prepared. The entire place is extremely cleaned and well decorated. The historical center, the most exquisit mosques, palaces and museums are just around the corner and the reception people, who welcome us so kindly, also gave us valuable tips to enjoy the city. Not to mention that they give us fully assistance to book shows, tours, Turkish bath and so on. That was beyond our expectations and honestly, we couldn't have better memories of our first time in Istambul. We're really having the time of our lives here especially because the entire team is so dedicated and put love and care in everything they do. Keep doing this excellent job, guys! That's precious and priceless!

My husband and I spent 4 nights in Premist Hotel. We arrived early at about 7.30a.m in the morning and yet we were allowed to check in immediately though the official check-in time is 2p.m. The male staff (I forgot his name, sorry) was nice enough to upgrade our economy double to a junior suite, and it didn't stop there. We were offered free breakfast. What a surprise after a long and tiring flight. Breakfast was full of fresh Turkish fruits. Other staff were also very nice and helpful, especially our Samsung friend!. Service was first class indeed.
We knew that this was a boutique hotel with small rooms. But the junior suite was excellent - clean and with Turkish style. We got much more space.
My son joined us in the afternoon and his single room was upgraded to a double, arranged next to ours. Staying on the third floor was perfect except you need to walk up steps but it was much quieter. The mattress was real comfy.
The next morning while having breakfast outdoor, we were greeted by a beautiful lady, Esin, the Guest Relations Manager of the hotel. She introduced us various tourist spots and routes to different locations with patience. Her recommendations to different dining options were fabulous especially the seafood restaurant (Suku...sorry for not remembering the spelling) on Princes' Island. Both my husband and I were so satisfied - excellent food with sunset.
This hotel has given us a very good memory in Istanbul. It's not just a hotel but home away from home. Esin was kind enough to see us off and we all became friends.
We will definitely stay in this hotel again if we visit Istanbul again.

On arrival we were welcomed to the hotel by Esin, who offered us a drink and then sat down with us for about an hour to point out various points of interest on a city map. She recommended fantastic restaurants for us for dinner that were close by to the hotel. It was great to have such a friendly welcome and Esin is a wealth of local knowledge! The hotel is beautifully decorated in Ottoman style, is very clean, and in a really convenient location, close to dozens of restaurants and main attractions. There is a great selection of food on offer for breakfast and the staff will even make you a real coffee! Unfortunately one of our bags was lost by an airline and the staff at Premist Hotel were fantastic in calling the airline to follow up on our lost luggage. Amazing hotel, amazing staff! I will definitely be back!
