A hotel you have to stay in Istambul
My stay at the White House Hotel was lovely. We were welcomed by the hotel manager who kindly offered us a cool drink in a warm afternoon. This hotel is top on my list if I ever come to visit Istambul again. The cleanliness of the place..the roof terrace where breakfast is served has a lovely view of Haggia Sophia. Nearly all interesting places are within walking distance. Everyone of the staff is friendly and helpful and will make you feel very welcome when you stay here.

Istanbul in September
Many thanks to everyone at the White House Hotel for a wonderful stay. The hotel is superbly located only moments away from the Hagia Sophia. The room was perfectly clean and beautifully furnished, equipped with high quality amenities including specific items to help fight covid-19. Breakfast was varied and substantial, served on the delightful roof terrace overlooking the Istanbul skyline. Above all the manager and staff were exceptional, delivering first-class, warm and professional service. It was great to see how much they all cared about each guest and took real pride in their hotel. Any request I had, from changing currency to storing luggage after checkout to recommending activities, the staff were always on hand to help. This is a small hotel, in an ideal area to explore Istanbul’s history, run by an excellent team. I had a fantastic stay here and would both recommend to other travellers and return myself in a heartbeat. Thank you!

The best hotel experience we have ever had 10/10
Absolutely awesome. I can not say enough good things about this hotel. The staff and management are the best we have found anywhere in the world. Nothing is too much trouble. From the second we arrived with a 5 hr early check in, to the day we left ( the owner physically drove our luggage to our new hotel) not to mention the complimentary room upgrade, wine and sweets. The location is perfect for exploring with everything on your doorstep. Our upgrade to a balcony suite was unexpected and beautiful. You really are welcomed into the whitehouse hotel 'family' and i highly reccomend that you stay here when visiting Istanbul. Thank you for making our first hotel stay in Istanbul amazing.

First Class Hotel in Sultanahmet!
We recently stayed for four nights in the White House Hotel as the beginning to our first visit to Turkey - what a fantastic first impression they made! Harun (Owner) greeted us with a wonderful welcome tray and a complete explanation about the hotel and what we could expect during our stay. They upgraded our room and by the time we walked in the door of the new room it was romantically decorated including a personally addressed hand written letter - what a great touch! The entire staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay, especially Hakan who gave us excellent advice on what to see and Kemal who helped us deal with our flight and phone service issues. The hotel’s location is really ideal for seeing the major sights and is just a couple minutes from great restaurants and the public tram stop. If you’re looking for a great way to experience Istanbul, we’d highly recommend making the White House Hotel part of your itinerary!
