I had a 7 day stay in this place with my family, it doesn't have an elevator, not even a bellboy to carry the luggage. I booked for 3 adults and paid extra amount for extra bed, but instead of keeping the extra bed in the room, they've just covered a sofa with a white sheet and a pillow (refer... More

Great Location! with great view of the blue mosque and Aya Sofia. Staff, especially Gurhan, was extremely helpful and kind. Breakfast was included and the Wifi worked perfectly every day. They also picked us up from the airport free and assisted us in reserving the airport shuttle on the way back. No lift, but this did not bother me. Breakfast... More

Kervan hotel was decent – breakfast was included in the reservation I made, so that was quite helpful. It was the standard Turkish breakfast you get at any hotel or B ‘n’ B: cheese, milk, cereal, boiled eggs, lots of bread, juices, etc. The man at the front desk was very nice (not only did he give us very detailed...

2 minutes to Hagia Sofiya, 3 minutes to Blue Mosque, right on top of the Basilica Cistern, and 7 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar it could not possibly be better located. (Once they had recovered from the 3 day citywide power cut) the room was warm enough and the hot water was plentiful. While the room was cosy, the... More

We had a great stay at Kervan. It is located above some small restaurants and cafes so there was no shortage of places to eat. The hotel is located literally steps away from Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque, and within walking distance to other sites in Sultanahmet area. We booked the suite on the top floor which gave us...

They responded quickly and efficiently to questions. The location is walking distance to many site seeing locations. They responded to my emails very quickly, making the trip planning easy and comforting. Also, they offered much advice on how to plan my trip.

We stayed at Kervan Hotel for 5 nights, after having contemplated not staying in Sultanahmed, the Old Town, but Taksim instead to be away from the touristy part of town. In the end we were glad we stayed at this hotel because the location was perfect, in between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia, close to Topkapi Palace and... More

This little hotel is situated in the heart of Istanbul right in the middle of Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Basilic Cistern. Due to its central position this hotel can be easily reached from the airport by both metero and tram. Needless saying that all other main attractions are a stone's throw away. It is a clean and homey accomodation... More
