The Hotel Peninsula is my favorite hotel in Istanbul. I have several reasons for my opinion. 1) The staff is wonderful. They speak English very well and have always been hospitable and kind. 2) The location is great. It's just behind at the Aya Sofia and within walking distance to everything you want to see in Sultan Ahmet. 3) For this neighborhood and what the hotel gives you, it is an unbeatable price. 4) the breakfast is delicious. Now, if you are looking for a 5 star hotel with a door man than this is not your place. But, if you want a clean comfortable stay in a great location with a wonderful staff then you cannot do better than this. In addition, they can always arrange airport shuttles at a reasonable price. I live in Turkey and have stayed at this hotel with all of my visitors. I have stayed here four times so far and plan on staying many more times in the future. If you have complaints about noise or other discomforts they would be a reflection of the neighborhood or city but not of something the hotel could change.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Hotel Peninsula in Istanbul. We are a small boutique hotel, nestled quietly at the end of leafy laneway. We are nestled amount this city’s great historical landmarks and you will instantly transport your mind heart upon arrival. When you go to buy your morning paper, you stroll past our 489 year old Turkish Hamam, tangled with vines and moss. This truly is an immersion into an oriental parallel, and we are pleased to be able to offer you warm, friendly accommodation during your journey here. The Peninsula has become a cultural institution over the years and we look forward (“wait with four eyes” in Turkish) to welcoming you to our extended family. ... more less
