There are so many hotels in Istanbul, it is unlikely a traveler has time to research them all. I stumbled across this boutique hotel which is steps away from the Blue Mosque, and its surrounding sights, as well as Arasta Bazaar. Esans is a small, family-run hotel which serves a free breakfast on the rooftop terrace overlooking the Bosphorus Sea.... More

I could not fault the hospitality offered by the staff at Esans Hotel. My travel companion had not been well and they immediately offered assistance to communicate her problem to the pharmacy. Their local knowledge was invaluable and the friendly greetings offered by all staff made Esans Hotel a home away from home. Well done Esans Hotel!

I came back for the second time to Esans hotel. Also this time I found myself very well. The staff is friendly and helpful. The property has been extended and now the breakfast room is on the terrace which has a very nice view of the sea. Breakfast is more a continental breakfast while I like to do it with... More

I stayed at 2 hotels at Istanbul during my trip to Turkey. The first one was ranked higher than Esans. But Esans was my delight surprise. The room was ordinary but breakfast and staff's performance was wonderful. Freshly squeezed juice, scrambled eggs and Bosphorus views to start the day. I found all of the 3 receptionists truly helpful and nice... More

We had a truly enjoyable stay @Esans. Terrific, spacious room with Bosporus view. All the staff were eager to assist and very helpful. Lovely breakfast buffet on terrace overlooking Bosporus. A real BARGAIN.

I hate to say this - as there are so many glowing reviews - but great service can not hide the fact that this hotel is a little tired, small and uninspiring. Our room (203) was tiny and rather kitsch in its décor. Despite having booked in for 4 nights we were not offered any kind of room upgrade and... More

The hotel was supposedly the ancient house f the king's perfumer and hence the name 'Esans' or 'essence'. Nice little room with a different aroma for every room. Very conveniently locaed just behind the palace and the museums ... Thus making it real easy to walk back and forth.

The family-run hotel provides a warm welcome, help and a complete and interesting breakfast. It is important for readers to know that the hotel does not have an elevator and it is necessary to walk up stairs to the rooms and breakfast terrace. It is also a bit eccentric and nothing at all like a chain hotel in the US,... More

We stayed four nights and thought it was great. As others have said, the location, so close to the main attractions and to good restaurants is great. What places it ahead of most of the others is the fact that it's on a small side street which doesn't get through traffic, so it's a very quiet location. The staff go... More

Lovely room and bathroom - huge by caparison to anything we've experienced in other big cities. Super breakfast deck area overlooking the water, not to mention the breakfast... More
