Unfortunately, I fell for the 9.1 rating from the reviews - though actually, most reviews are great! My guess is that they are all from the summer. This place has no central heating and we are FREEZING! It was also a shock to be told that breakfast STARTED at 10:30 and we have a meeting up the hill at 9:30.... More

We had a lovely time here. Lovely room and breakfast and Arsen is a great host, felt like we were staying with friends. It's just a few minutes walk from the harbour and easy to find. The island is a lovely place to spend a few days.

A wonderful respite from hectic Istanbul. L'isola is comfortable, charming and well decorated. Arsen is welcoming, helpful and accommodating. He gave us some great recommendations for swimming and dining. He also makes an amazing breakfast! We would love to visit again!

Arsen is as charming as his lovely guesthouse with its comfortable well-decorated rooms with dainty terraces overlooking the harbor and hilltop city. Whatever he can do for you he will. I paid more at L'Isola than the spectacular Istambul Hilton in Harbye, the oldest Hilton in Europe with its distinct fifties modernist charm and beds made in heaven. No matter... More

We were wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of Istanbul after 4 hectic days of sightseeing and a long flight. What we discovered was peace and serenity. Lovely quiet evenings and pleasant days on this island. Arsen the congenial owner and host, made us very welcome, gave us heaps of useful information about the history of the island and... More
