We can unreservedly recommend this hotel. The Manager and her staff could not possibly be more welcoming and generous with their hospitality. The location is ideal - just a 5 minute stroll to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Good restaurants immediately adjacent. Excellent breakfast on roof-top terrace with superb views over the mosques. Very comfortable rooms. In short, it's... More

Passing through from East Africa to England we decided to break for the night in Istanbul. This hotel seemed to fit the bill since it is so well placed for seeing the historic buildings and being at the centre of the city's life. One night was far from being ideal and we should have stayed longer at this "gem" of... More

Staff couldn't have been more helpful, courteous, welcoming. Facilities attractive and perfectly maintained. Roof deck a special pleasure, with views out over Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque, Aya Irene, Topkapi, and the Bosphorus. Breakfast first rate. And the location could not be more convenient for getting around Istanbul. Neighborhood quiet. Clientele of knowledgeable, seasoned travelers. Rooms (at least mine) on the... More

My husband and I spend our one week break in Istanbul in the White House with slightly a tighter budget than previous breaks. In a nut shell, we did really find our selves missing any of the privileges we find in 4 or 5 stars hotels. The place fits its name. Also, because of its strategic situation, you hardly need... More

We stayed at The White House hotel for three nights and had a wonderful time there. We were greeted with Turkish delight, drinks and even a birthday cake for me. The room was exactly as it appears on the website and decorated with tea lights and rose petals. It is in an excellent location being near to dozens of very... More

My husband and I spent 4 days in Istanbul at the lovely White House Hotel. Our room was quite comfortable and well located in Sultanahmet. The staff, specifically Huseyin, was always happy and eager to help us with any questions that we had. We enjoyed having tea in the lobby on numerous occasions. The room came with a small kitchenette,... More

Very good clean hotel with warm and hospitable people. The place has a good balance between western efficiency and Asian warmth. The location, the breakfast and the room were all a great package. Our stay of 5 days was fabulous and we are glad we chose the White House.

I was staying in this hotel for almost a week. When we arrived at the hotel we were very warm welcomed by the hotel staff. Our luggage was brought to our room and we could rest on the huge sofa with a fresh orange juice and Turkish delight. When my friend saw the rain shower, she was amazed. The first... More
