We spent 3 nights in the Ocean Room at the Ferman Hotel, friends we traveled with had a streetside room. We did not experience any of the issues other people have commented on. Our room was lovely, everything was in working order and clean. Our room was huge! Our friend's room was also large and clean and they did not... More

This place is really not a hotel but a hostel. I stayed in three different rooms in this "hotel". The decor is dated, the bathrooms are falling apart (see photos attached), the towels are grey and moldy, and the breakfast is terrible. If you are tempted to stay in this hotel because of the misleading "great reviews" this place got... More

This hotel is situated in the best part of town. Quiet and safe at all times. The rooms facing the waters have an excellent view of the ocean and the city. The view of the Blue Mosque and the city from the rooftop restaurant is breathtaking. The staff are very helpful and accommodating. The problem is with the maintenance of... More

This hotel is within walking distance of the Blue Mosque. Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar etc. yet our room was very quiet. A perfect location. The staff very helpful. Would recommend it for a city break. Many good restaurants nearby.

The Ferman hotel did have a lovely staff, but everything else was disappointing. The smokers on the front steps assured that the entire building, including rooms were permeated by smoke. The breakfast was not fresh -- fruit flies hovered over the veggies; cakes were a few days old; coffee pot was always empty; display tray covers were cracked; potatoes were... More

We stayed in Istanbul for 3 nights at the Ferman Hotel. The hotel boasts a good location and the view from the rooftop restaurant is beautiful. The room that we got, however, seemed dark due to the design and furnishings and our air-con did not work for the first 2 nights we were there. We also saw slight tears in... More

Stayed for 3 nights at the Ferman Hotel in late Sept 2014. Greeted at the check in with an upgrade to a Penthouse!! The staff were friendly and readily assisted us with providing directions and arranging for laundry to be done etc. Our room overlooked he Blue Mosque - so it is close to many of the most important sites....

We first stayed at the Ferman about 3 years ago when it was rated in the best 2 or 3 hotels in Istanbul on Trip Adviser. We loved it then and still think it is as good. The rooms are spacious and quite comfortable, The location is excellent, the breakfast is quite good (but not gourmet) and the staff are... More

A must stay hotel while in Istanbul while you are looking for a central tourist location and excellent and friendly staff. We were greeted and served exceptionally well by Sinan and Ugur. Both these guys were wonderful and did their best to provide a really good service. Hotel is fairly clean but could use some upgrades in the rooms and... More
