First, this hotel is in a great location for exploring the main sites of Istanbul. However, we found our room to be dark and rundown. The toilet didn't flush properly and the bed was a series of weird lumps that seems to be topped off with a very strong cologne. We asked if there was another room available but they... More

A really well located and functional hotel. Totally recommended. The reviews were all accurate. Loved the vista from the rooftop and the staff were awesome on helping and recommending sightseeing trips. Sinan was very helpful as was Rijat(sp?). We had a wonderful 6 days in Istanbul.

Two we could recommend are The Cozy Garden and Ala Des Amis. The staff are very helpful although we did have to ask three times for an additional blanket to be... More

First visit to Istanbul and both of us loved it and were very impressed by the Ferman. Good value, clean, air-con that really WORKS, friendly staff (the manager Sinan was extremely professional, helpful, and gave good practical advice)... But we certainly did not get the impression of any staff favouring certain tour firms above others, though they did recommend eating... More

We stayed at the ferman for 1 week during June, the location is amazing, honestly cannot be better at all, literally 3-10 min walking distance from everything and it's in a very safe area. The service was also good, 1-3 employees really stood out as amazing, rest were okay. Breakfast there absolutely sucked, old food, not fresh, super salty, minimal... More

Staff extremely friendly and helpful. We had a large room overlooking the Bosphoros on the 4 th floor. The view from the room and the roof terrace is by far one of the best views I ever had on our travels. The breakfast was typical Turkish and of a basic standard . I would definitely return if I could have... More

My husband and I stayed here recently for 5 nights. Overall the location in the Old City made it easy for us to walk to all the sites and there's a cute street of restaurants, they are more touristy but convenient and lots of options. Pros: - Location in the Old CIty - Clean, and they turn the rooms quickly... More

Location is great for major attractions. Generous room size. Unfortunately there is an almost constant smell of smoke drifting into the room. Air conditioning doesn't work, light bulbs burned out and not replaced when requested, broken switches.
