We stayed there for 3 nights at the end of our trip to Turkey. We checked in early in the morning and they made sure we got the room early enough so we can take some rest. Excellent breakfast and service. The hotel manager and his staff were very hospitable and fulfilled all our requests without a grimace. Excellent location... More

I stayed here 4 days during a recent visit and couldn't recommend it more. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast each morning is just what I needed to start the day. They provide free water bottles in the room so I don't have to worry about the drinking water. Extremely convenient to many of the major sites... More

I've stayed at this hotel previously and booked again for a family holiday in Istanbul. We had the two rooms on ground level because they are the nearest thing to connecting rooms and they are behind a 3rd door which does give privacy. The booking process was efficient - I did it by email - and clear. All of the... More

We arrived early morning after a long trip. We were immediately given our room and a free breakfast. Our 5 night stay was most comfortable with great breakfasts and wonderful, friendly service. Late checkout on leaving. Fantastic! Highly recommended by experienced World travellers.

When we arrived at the hotel, we were struck by how friendly everyone was. Mahmut gave us lots of useful advice and information and everyone, including housekeeping, made us feel at home. The rooms are very clean and the beds are great. We have two 9 year old boys and we chose the hotel as they arranged for proper beds... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Istanbul Art De Vivre!Located at he heart of Istanbul between Europe and Asia, the Best Western Premier Regency Suites Hotel & Spa commands an extensive view of a relatively small area that has nonetheless witnessed 2000 years of the history of some of the richest civilisations humanity has ever known: Ancient, Greece the Roman Empire, The Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire!It is only a few steps from the Blue Mosque, Saint Sophie and Topkapi Palace. The hotel, a lovely mansion built in 1905, is a listed historic monument today. The elegance of its origin is still amply visible in the neo-classical moulding on the facade and the solid wood or beige Bursa granite floors. Numerous details and features in the house bear witness to a world of such sophistication that its sultans are portrayed holding a flower.The hotel’s rugs, like the motifs on the walls, seem to have stepped straight out of the Topkapi Palace.As century old traditions require, the hammam of the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa features a suite of three rooms with different functions: hot room, warm room and cool room.The hotel is equally dedicated to maintaining state-of-the-art international hotel standards, which rather than detracting from its historic past, leave its guests free to savour and appreciate this heritage.In this way, the Best Western Premier Regency Suites Hotel & Spa distils the quintessence of Istanbul’s distinctive lifestyle, particularly from its 16 suites:the dome of the Blue Mosque surrounded by six slender minarets, the monotonous chant of the muezzin, the enchanting hush that reigns over the city in the morning, the sweetly scented Topkapi Park, the view of Bosphorous or the Marmara Sea on which the Prince’s Islands seem almost to float or its mouth-watering exotic cuisine, etc. The justly dubbed ‘Golden Horn’, which the hotel overlooks, sumptuously sums up the inexhaustible wealth of this matchless location. ... more   less
