    Seven Hills Hotel

    Seven Hills Hotel

    Class:
    6 reviews
    Excellent! - 87% of guests recommend

    I didn't stay at the hotel, but I had dinner in the restaurant. Although the seafood menu was stellar, we were there for the view, which overlooks the water, the Hagia Sofia, and the Blue Mosque. It's a bit pricey, but it's worth it. Reservations are recommended.

    Nixon Hotel Bosphorus

    Nixon Hotel Bosphorus

    Class:
    2 reviews

    This is one of my favorite districts in Istanbul. In the days when everyone traveled by ship, this was where you came ashore. Many of the consulates are still located around here and I used to live right up the hill. The view of the Bosphorus is incomparable, especially when the tankers go by. Marbien Hotel is a new luxury ...

    Very Good! - 83% of guests recommend

    A real gem of a place and at a very affordable price, this lovely little wooden house is in the heart of old Istanbul and just a short walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The house is set on a very small cobbled street so is quiet and peaceful. The rooms are quite small, this is a historical ...

    Ayasultan Hotel

    Ayasultan Hotel

    5 reviews

    As if hiding from the hustle and bustle of the main street, Ayasultan occupies a spot almost hidden from plain sight. But the standard of service you find inside is astonishing! Ayasultan is modern, decoration of the rooms blend taste and daring – as in embodying a contemporary take on tradition. The terrace is fabulous and so is the café ...

    Class:

    Excellent! - 87% of guests recommend

    I was enchanted with this hotel…cozy and elegant, with details that made it unique and welcoming. I felt like I was a guest in a fine, Victorian home, which is what they want the experience to be. It is built alongside the old city wall, so when you enjoy your afternoon tea on the tree-shaded garden patio, you do so ...

    The House Hotel Galatasaray

    The House Hotel Galatasaray

    5 reviews
    Excellent! - 87% of guests recommend

    This beautiful old building used to be a house belonging to a (presumably) incredibly wealthy family and the refurbishment into a hotel has been done extremely well. They’ve preserved a lot of original features, such as the floor tiling, the banisters of the marble staircase and the nicest radiators I’ve ever seen! Theses features are complimented by modern updates making ...

    The Byzantium Hotel

    Class:
    3 reviews

    This hotel was stunning! Located only steps from Hagai Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace on a cute street full of shops and cafes. The staff was friendly and willing to help with any request, while the rooms themselves were gorgeous. Even if you don't stay here, don't miss the rooftop terrace - tallest in the area!

    Sirkeci Mansion

    Sirkeci Mansion

    Class:
    6 reviews

    Sirkeci Mansion is a very popular hotel. I was told by the reception that they receive reservations continuously and remain full from May to August. Considering the service, the overall atmosphere and how exquisite the hotel is, they truly deserve this popularity and more. As reflected by its very name and evident from its façade, Sirkeci Mansion is converted from ...

    The Green Park Taksim

    The Green Park Taksim

    Class:
    3 reviews

    If you want to be near Taksim, Talimhane is the best place. The cobblestone streets are lined with international restaurants: Korean, Palestinian, Indian and, of course Turkish. The Green Park is the nicest hotel in the neighborhood. The rates run up to 200 Euro a night but you'll have a secure, conveniently located and luxurious hotel.

    At first sight, I thought it was an ugly glass monolith – you can see it all the way over on the ferry as it towers above the surrounding buildings. But when you get inside you see the reason for the all glass. Arriving at sundown the light was streaming into the hotel lobby and the view over the water ...

    You can barely tell that this is a hotel now, and not a palace any longer. Amazing location right on the water and close to historic tourist sights.

    A gorgeous set of suites in the heart of trendy Cihangir. The 18 rooms in Witt are all spacious and contain king-size beds, a sitting area and kitchenettes with good coffee machines. Despite being equipped with kitchenettes, the hotel still offers a free breakfast, which is great if you’re just stopping for a day or two and don’t want to ...

    Even if you don’t stay here, I highly recommend that you have a drink or dinner at the rooftop bar and restaurant here one evening during your visit to Istanbul. The panoramic view of the Bosphorus is phenomenal. That superb experience is reiterated in the rest of the hotel as well, making a stay here an excellent experience to compliment ...

    Ocean's 7 Hotel

    Class:

    I didn't realize that there was also a hotel, but the restaurant is a must! The historic ottoman house was renovated beautifully and is now run by seven charismatic brothers. After we ate here one evening, they remembered us and offered us free coffee every time we walked by for the rest of the week. The food is great, but ...

    Basileus Hotel

    Basileus Hotel

    Excellent! - 93% of guests recommend

    Sutlanahmet is a great place to stay when visiting Istanbul, with Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar all within 5/10 minutes of each other. However, all the people and traffic can start to feel a bit oppressive after a while so it’s nice to escape to a hotel like this, which is set away from all ...

    Empress Zoe

    5 reviews

    I loved walking into the stone-lined lobby of this hotel, climbing up the spiral staircase and walking the marble floors to the comfortable room with lovely Turkish décor. The balcony overlooking the garden patio was a nice perk. The breakfast spread was excellent in traditional Turkish style, with a variety of breads, fresh fruits, and real jams and jellies, not ...

    Grand Hotel de Londres

    5 reviews

    If you’re looking for old Turkish lodgings, with eclectic style and plenty of history, this is it. I’d say this hotel is more about character and charm than modern luxury. I could have explored the curiosities and quirks decorating this hotel to no end…giving a real feel for the roots going back to 1892. From the parrot in the lounge, ...

    Good! - 79% of guests recommend

    The tiny, green, wooden house looks like it could barely hold one room from the outside but, in fact, there are 5 floors of rooms thanks to an incline at the back and some clever Ottoman architects! It’s the most beautiful historical building and really nicely done up inside; really warm and charming. There’s a very nice courtyard garden which ...
