“Great Location, Great Staff, A Little Noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

The Premist Hotel in Istanbul might have one of the best locations in Istanbul and the staff is one of the nicest in the business. The hotel is more of a boutique inn which is located in a historical building in Sultanahmet which gives it a lot of charm. However, this means the hotel does not have an elevator. The decor in the lobby and the rooms are very tasteful and the rooms have Molton Brown products which is particularly nice. Price is reasonable with a nice breakfast spread included in the rate. The staff I interacted with, including Mustafa and Serdar, were extremely pleasant and helpful in whatever questions I had or anything I needed. The location of the hotel is right down the street from Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque; on the other end, you can walk or run on the water.
A few minor critiques. One, the hardwood floors made it a little noisy outside of my room. When people walked on it, it was a little noisy and peoples' voices carried. Second, the Ishar Pasha Mosque is nearby and announces call to prayer at 530 in the morning; this woke me up a few mornings. These minor things would not dissuade me from staying here again but I wanted to note them in this review.

I agree with what most reviewers are saying below: Fantastic location, rooms on the small side like everywhere else in the Sultanamet but charmingly decorated, lots of bathroom amenities (including bathrobes & slippers), generous breakfast and above all incredibly nice staff. I would not look for another hotel in Istanbul and have been recommended Premist to lots of friends

I don't know what to say that has not been said already by the raving reviews.
The staff, as I always write, makes the difference and at the Premist, this is truer than ever. Talking about staff, special thanks to Serdar, who welcomed us like an old friend: he made us comfortable, helped us with valuable tips about the main spots of the city and how to get around Sultanhamet and reach the main sites. Just perfect and very professional.
Location, well what to say other than you are maybe in the best possible strategic location of Istanbul?
All in all, the raving reviews have ground. Stay at the Premist!

I would have given 5 stars to this hotel if the rooms were a bit more spacious. The location of the hotel is excellent - it is a stone's throaway from ayasofia, topkapi palace and the Sultanahmet Tram station, which made our stay much convenient. There is also a big street (can't rem the name) with loads of eateries and some of them are top rated on Tripadvisor, just outside the hotel, so even if you come back at 10 in night and have missed your dinner, it is not an issue!

Coming to room size, we found them bit too small. Agreed they are very well decorated, and good quality, but once you put some luggage on the ground, it is a puzzle to get out of the room with toilet doors and main doors clashing etc. We have travelled widely across Europe, so are used to small hotels, but this went a step too far. I guess the name Boutique hotel should've warned us.

But other than that, it was wonderful - room service, breakfast, friendliness of staff was all excellent.

Room Tip: Choose a room where there are enough windows and a TV as the rooms can get warm.

The Premist is a lovely new boutique Hotel with a great location. There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said, except that if you give the hotel a chance, you Will not be disappointed. The rooms are a little bit small but they are furnished to a very high standard and the luxurious bed promises a great night's sleep. We were so busy in Istanbul with sightseeing so it didn't matter the size of the room for us. We slept like a baby also shower pressure was amazing. Cleanliness comfort service and location are most important when visiting a place like this and the Premist has all these things.

We (50's couple) recently completed a stay for 5 nights. We loved this hotel. Excellent location, +++ helpful and friendly staff, comfortable beds (so many hotels have hard beds - but not this one), and everything you need to enjoy a stay in Istanbul. Restaurants, major tourist attractions, public transport all minutes walk away, yet we found the location quiet and peaceful. Staff provided lots of advice of where to go and how to get there, and were extremely helpful organizing tours. Wifi was good, luxurious toiletries, just lots of little touches that put it in a special category. We loved the special touches left by the lady who makes up the rooms.
We have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to anyone, you won't be disappointed or regret your choice. It is lovely.
Downside: There are a lot of stairs, so if these are a problem, make sure you ask for a room on a lower level.

This place courts its tripadvisor reviews, but it deserves its rating.

Good value, friendly helpful staff, good room service, POWER shower. Location near to the historical tourist trail.

Breakfast is a bit average, but I guess it's tricky with a smaller hotel.

I'd stay here again.
