This is my first ever review of a hotel- we had such a great stay at The White House that I wanted to recommend it to others. It's hard to find a hotel that will accommodate a family of 4 in one room so we were delighted that it wasn't a compromise on anything else. The email communications and courtesy... More

We stayed here for three nights. The location in the Old City is perfect for exploring. The hotel was beautiful, clean and the staff made you feel like you were staying with family. We can not say enough about the staff that runs this hotel. There is nothing in America that compares to the hospitality we received. Overall, great hotel... More

We stayed here for two nights. The location in Sultanahmet is perfect for exploring the nearby mosques, and the Grand Bazaar, and there is a tram stop within walking distance to reach the other attractions. We were given an upgraded room in the lobby. Note that the normal double rooms which we saw looked on the small side. My main... More

My wife & I revisited the Hotel with her brother & Sister-in-law and were still amazed by the welcome given to us. There have been a few changes around the hotel with new pedestrian precincts but the inside is still a peaceful retreat from the hustle & bustle around Istanbul. The hotel is ideally situated for walking around Sultanhamet and... More

We (three) had a wonderful experience in this hotel. The rooms were super clean and comfortable. The location couldn't be better as it was 5 minutes from some of the important sites in Istanbul's old city. It has also a great location for excellent restaurants. The staff was very attentive. I would stay in this hotel again.

My wife and I stayed at the White House Hotel on our honeymoon and we were thrilled with every aspect of the hotel. They are not an "elite" high end hotel.. and they do a very good job of letting you know that they are not a fancy hotel...but what they are is a hotel that does a great job... More

Average hotel in a very good location (Sultanamet, 5 minutes walking distance from the Agia Sophia and the Blu Mosque). Quite clean and nicely decorated (even though a bit heavy baroque furnitures and object). Wonderful staff, very kind and helpful. Good breakfat on the terrace, but nothig special. The real problem was the too small, oppressive and narrow room. Overall,... More

I stayed here as a solo female traveler and this will be my “go to” property whenever I am in Istanbul. Right after I made my reservation the GM reached out to me to let me know that this is a smaller property, not a big chain type hotel with all the amenities. I appreciated that he reached out just...

Very handy location, excellent service from the most courteous, helpful and friendly staff. Clean, comfortable rooms with authentic breakfast included. Transfer from the airport is included one way and tours and tourist information was provided by the staff.

we liked everything about the hotel. I stayed 6 nights in the hotel, the location of the hotel was excellent, all tourist attractions like Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque are 2 to 5 minutes walking distance, apart from this, the tram station was very near. The staff was very friendly and co-operative specially Mr. Omar, Ms. Figen & Ms.... More
