Great location, charming place, very helpful staff. Granted, the lighting is a little dimmer than what I like since I love to read in bed and the bedding is s little worn, but the remaining accommodation could not have been more comfortable convenient. Every tourist attraction is within walking distance. We did not have to trudge very far after a... More

I heartily agree with others about this charming and friendly hotel. Ideal location in Sultanahment, As a single woman I felt comfortable and safe walking around and having dinner at cafes in the neighborhood, and coming back to the hotel well after dark (about 10pm, despite admonitions not to go out alone after dark). My room was small, but quiet.... More

A wonderful and peaceful location in the heart of Sultanahmet. Rooms are a bit tiny but cosy and some of them have a balcony. There is also a nice terrace where you can have an excellent breakfast in the morning. Very friendly staff! I've been there already 2 times and I would recommend the guesthouse to anyone who is looking... More

Just perfect in everything. Accomodation, personal room, shared rooms, service, staff, location. The most kind and caring staff I've ever seen. The whole week was awesome, the weather was warm and the amount of tourists around was not that big, October is definitively a great period to go visit this amazing city. I wish I could come back tomorrow!

We just came back from Delhi and were looking for some quiet time and some sightseeing. This place was just perfect. A double room, simple but fine, with breakfast for 60 Euros per night. Friendly staff, breakfast in the garden, free pick up from the airport (because we booked 4 nights) and Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque in walkable distance.... More

We just returned from a week in Istanbul, and we stayed at the Bonjour Guesthouse, room #4. Monday through Sunday (6 days) we paid $234 USD, which works out to about $39 a day. This price includes breakfast every morning, served from 8am - 10:30am. The room was about the size of a small bedroom, with private bathroom. The room... More

Although fairly old the guest house was very clean, the staff were more than helpful, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Free use of the PC and printer made the visit very pleasant. The only downside was that the TV was really only for sports fans and the mini bar was turned off! I would go... More

No rug or carpet, worn fittings, worn grubby-looking bedcovers, no bedside light, inadequate mattresses, everything worn out, frayed towels. Steep winding stairs to first floor, insufficient seating for breakfast. Inadequately staffed with front door locked most of the time. Embarrassingly denuded of any decoration or home comfort, including lamps, rugs, pictures. An atmosphere of poverty, even though the room rates... More

Friendly, clean, cheap and in the heart of Sultanhamet. It had the feeling of the 70's, brought me back to my hippie youth when trust and friendship had a real meaning. SEFA helped me to find my way in the old town maze and answer to all my many questions. Very good breakfast, excellent shuttle service.
