Good large rooms and bathroom but for the budget traveller. Breakfast was a large spread but nothing too tasty. Service is great. However the rooms are dark and the aircon struggled against the heat. The bathtub is elevated and older people may struggle to get in and out. The location is good on a quiet street. All in all not... More

My fiance and I ventured to Istanbul on a very last minute trip. We booked the Ferman Hotel after reading several great reviews and we hoped for the best. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the very friendly Sinan at the front desk; our trip was off to a great start! Sinan took amazing care of us during our... More

The location is almost unbeatable if you are looking to stay in Sultanahmet. It's a very short walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet park, Basilica Cistern, the Hippodrome, the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, and it's near plenty of hamams & places to eat. The walk to Galata bridge, crossing over & exploring near the fish market & Galata... More

Perfect location for exploring Sultanahmet. Interesting locale also to poke around the area (old fishing area with wooden buildings) near the Sea of Marmara. Great views from the terrace. Very friendly and helpful staff.

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
