I'll start off with the pros. If you get a triple room, it is quite spacious. The breakfast is really delicious and there is a ton of options (cheeses, cereal, coffee, tea, veggies, fruit, and much more). It's on the top level of the hotel so you get a nice view. The location is beyond AMAZING. The street is centrally... More

Great breakfast spread with views of Topkapi palace. Very welcoming and excellent English spoken at reception. We were lucky to get one of the fantastic bigger rooms with very cool wall lighting. The hotel is located right near Gulhane tram stop and an easy walk to the main Sultanahmet sights and also the Bosphorus ferries down the hill.

We stayed for 5 nights in July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed with a cooling glass of tea and friendly smiles. Throughout our stay the staff were ever helpful. 2 minutes away from the nearest tram stop (the stop is Gülhane) which means the city is very much your oyster. If you're happy to walk and explore...

Many restaurant around here, but expensive. We walked back a bit to Sirkeci and found a lot of cheap street food and cheap restaurant. There... More

Once we found the hotel, the staff was fantastic. We arrived on a drizzly afternoon and it was very nice to be offered a glass of cinnamon apple tea as we checked in. We (2 of us) had reserved our room online and it was one of their smaller rooms, although the website indicated it was suitable for 2 people.... More

I just stayed at Hotel Evsen for a total of 7 nights with 2 of my friends (we were a group of 3 girls all in our mid-20's). Another one of our friends joined us and stayed in a room by herself which she also loved. We all had an AMAZING stay and could not be happier with the hotel... More
