    Stay here

    We had a fantastic experience at the White House. The staff couldn’t do more to help us, they were attentive and thoughtful. The location is perfect for tourists. Our room was spacious and comfortable we arrived to rose petals and candles which set a very romantic scene. Breakfast was very good. Overall they exceeded our expectations on every dimension

    Nice hotel close to major tourist attractions

    From the moment we walked in the door we were spoilt rotten. They gave us an early checking, extra free breakfast and a room upgrade with rose petals on our bed. Breakfast was lovely. Family atmosphere, what more could you ask for!

    I stayed here for 3 nights and the hospitality of this hotel is wonderful and the staff was very professional, helpful and more than eager and willing to acquiesce to my every request. Enchanting views with a selection of activities and walking distance to all the attractions. Top notch breakfast on the terrace with the beautiful view of Hagia Sophia. The place is spotless and the owner clearly focus on every detail. He gave me a gift of Turkish delights and Turkish tea which I really appreciate. I really don’t have words to describe their wonderful service. Highly recommended to everyone who wants to stay in most convenient and safe area!!

    Cozy Hotel in Historic Istanbul

    Thoughts after my 13 night stay: 1. Location - 5/5. Right in Fatih, this hotel is within walking distance to all of the popular cultural sites in the old city. 2. Service - 5/5. Hotel staff were extremely nice and helpful. 3. Breakfast - 4.5/5. Tasty with some daily variety. The rooftop view of Hagia Sophia is amazing. 4. Room - 4/5. The standard room is on the smaller side, but was fine for a couple. 5. Cleanliness - 5/5. Room always felt cozy. 6. Safety - 5/5. It felt very safe here, I never felt like I needed to lock up my belongings. Overall, my experience at this hotel was excellent. The friendly staff are the hotel's finest attribute. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to visit Istanbul for the first time or as a romantic getaway.

    Harun and his staff have been absolutely amazing our entire 7-day stay at this beautiful property. Communication via email has been immediate and Harun even provided his cellular phone number in case we had issues while out. We arrived by taxi from the IST airport (~150 Lira) with no issues, having written the address down to hand to the driver. The location is perfect and a majority of the sights are walkable or you can easily take the T1 tram. The hotel takes Covid concerns very seriously and our temperature was checked upon arrival, and there are hand sanitizer stations everywhere. The room is good sized by American standards and housekeeping has been amazing, the room was always clean. The breakfast buffet (which you now use gloves to serve yourself) has been magnificent and changes every day, with an assortment of cheeses, fruits, breads, and hot items. There is also 24/7 espresso and tea served on the beautiful rooftop terrace. I absolutely recommend this hotel and wouldn't stay anywhere else if I return to Istanbul again.
