Before my trip to Istanbul my research showed this hotel consistently had great reviews. After my 4 nights stay I have to say the whole experience definitely exceeded all my expectations. From the location (5 minutes walk to tram, 3 mins to grocery store), the unbelievable rooftop view, to most importantly, the incredible staff I've ever met. Thanks to a... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed at Sayeban Hotel Istanbul for 6 nights in June...I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul. The service and the staff were excellent and exceeded our expectations. Before we arrived Yavuz (General Manager) e-mailed me and helped set up Airport transfers. While we were there Yavuz, Alpay and Mahmut were always willing to... More

Service The service and people are what make this hotel, the staff are friendly. We were welcomed in and given a drink. The member of staff behind the counter chatted us through the city, as it is quite big and spread out. For me the staff are what made this hotel good. From there friendly breakfast service and door counter... More

We stayed in Sayeban Hotel for four nights during our first ever visit to Istanbul, Turkey. If you take their pickup service, its very good and safe. We received a very warm welcome on our arrival. The manager (Yavuz) helped us feel relaxed with our first Turkish tea, immediately after which he guided us through the sightseeing. The locality (Gedikpasa... More

We stayed 2 nights there. The manager was very helpful, always available for any request. Room was clean, good size. Breakfast is amazing lots of food. ''roof top'' is not really a roof top since there is a roof but it's a great room with windows all around. The hotel is well located, close to everything. You do have to... More
