“Like staying at a friend's house!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The best service I have ever had from a hotel. Yusuf was a star, a great guy full of passion for his hotel! We were well looked after during the entire week at Istanbul. It was like staying at a local friend's place. The staff would go out of their way to help you.
Hotel location can't be any better!
The rooms were clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable (like a 5-star hotel standard)!
Breakfast was fresh and was always served with big smiles from the staff members!
I would definitely go back to this hotel if I get to go back to Istanbul again!

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in March. The best thing about this small hotel is the impeccable service. The rooms are very clean, but not very pretty. the rooms in the back have a view of a blank wall and those are the only ones which can fit more than 2 people.
The breakfast room is in the attic with no windows and fluorescent lights, blank walls (with a lot of echo) and no music to brighten the mood.
I would recommend this place for the friendly and wonderful service, but think it's a bit overpriced for the overall quality.

Room Tip: Do not choose a room on the main floor if you are sensitive to noise, as you can hear the comings an...

World Heritage Hotel show us the friendly side of Istanbul with a front-desk man named Yusuf. Upon arrival he helped us with some useful tips, things to do and see. He and his team were very warm-hearted. It was amazing how friendly they are and they had a nice word every single minute in a day. The Hotel itself was amazing. Nice, clear and easy to acces from main station Eminönü with tram (had to walk circa 100-200meters). They have a very good sortiment for breakfast and delights, sweets and fruits at the front desk. I can only suggest to stay at this hotel and do not be afraid of asking Yusuf! :) The hotel was the icing on the cake of our tour in Istanbul. Thanks for that!

Room Tip: Thanks to the elevator all floors are easy to access and I believe there is no difference between fl...

This hotel was so amazing that when we came back to Istanbul we stayed twice. The room was amazing as usual and spotless. I even checked underneath the bed and behind the sofa, and there were no dustbunnies. The breakfast served fresh fruits along with a nice spread of cheeses, bread, cold cuts and hot food. The mandarins and pomegranates are amazing when available. The hotel staff also treated us like royalty. Sometimes, on the second visit, they take things for granted but this is not the case at all. We had regular complementary, delicious Turkish coffee. I have not had such rich and tasty Turkish coffee in my life. The manager Yusuf was a gracious, accommodating and recommended the best places for Turkish delight. This hotel is better than any hotel I have ever stayed in Canada :)

The staff couldn't do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms were clean and bright, perhaps a little too "cozy" for my comfort but for a city break, more than adequate. Location could not have been better within walking distance of just about everything!

I rarely write reviews, but I so depend on the truthful ones. The reviews on World Heritage are spot on!

We stayed for four days in two different rooms (we added on an extra night), so I'm comfortable with the accuracy of my review:

The service is friendly, helpful and sincere. The rooms are nicely sized, quiet, and beds are superb. The bathrooms are quite nice with excellent water pressure and tons of hot water. It is ultra clean. The hotel is quiet too. The Breakfast buffet (included) is ample, fresh and delicious, as is the ever present lobby buffet of coffee, tea, fruit and fresh deserts!

What else?? The location is superb, only a block from the epicenter of hippodrome/blue mosque. It is EXTREMELY safe (we walked in after midnight every night.)

Yusuf (the owner) is highly knowledgable of the area, kind and service oriented. He helped us arrange car rentals, flights and another hotel in Selçuk. He gave The low down on the Grand Bazaar and other merchants. He has no vested interest except his guests, and it shows!

Stay here. You won't regret it.

This is our very first visit in Istanbul & we stayed here for 5 nights with my husband and we had such a great time. Yusuf the owner was super good & friendly, you just feel like you're visiting a family member. I have some points to say to make it details. Firstly they arranged our pick up transfer from the airport to the hotel for free of charged. Secondly when you arrived, all the staff greeted you with a very welcome warm greeting and served us with the Turkish hospitality "turkish coffee". Than we asked some questions from Yusuf for getting around due to its our first visit and Yusuf was brilliantly helping us about all the places that we want to visit & told us which part to avoid (one areas is a bit dangers he said). You can ask everything from him and he'll had the answer. I called him Mr "google" for his knowledges for places and getting around hahahaa. Thirdly, the room. The room actually quit nice just a little too small especially on the bathroom. It's cleans just need a bit more space but other than that its quit comfortable especially the bed and their pillows. Than the next day, breakfast. We were so surprised to found so many foods and choices. We thought its just going to be a few things but they are generous to serve you with so many foods. The staff again were super friendly and kind. Just unfortunately they don't really speak good english and I think they just need to be a bit aware what need to be refill because couple times we found empty plate or milk and have to asked them. But they are really nice and hard to judge just for a few small things. So overall, we had such a great experience and not forget to mention the location. Only a few door steps from the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) just few minutes distance from other attraction places as Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern & tram station which can take you mobile and easily to the places.
