We have just returned from an excellent 5 nights in Istanbul (our 1st time) and had a wonderful stay at the Ersari Hotel. The location is fantastic being 5mins from the tram, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Aya Sofia. It's also very quiet at night which I was surprised about in such a massive city. The hotel is well... More

This is a small cosy family-run hotel where staff are very friendly and helpful; in fact they go out of their way to help. It is situated about 6-7 mins walk away from the Blue Mosque and the tourist area. Although, I must stress, the walk up the cobbled street maybe challenging for some. Bedrooms were very clean with comfortable... More

First, the location. Just 5 min walking in between Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar. The road is a bit uphill, but Istanbul is all up- and downhill, so nothing strange. The room was big enough for 2, clean, comfortable and nicely Turkish style decorated. The breakfast room has an inner courtyard as well, so you can choose if eating... More

Super boutique hotel. Excellent service, thoughtful staff (Helen was amazing). She helped us book our trip to Pammukale and Konya from Istanbul. Rooms as advertised. Breakfast lovely especially when eaten in the garden. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Clean, safe, great location, nice staff, new hotel. The reason I booked this hotel is because it was the most reasonable hotel with 2 rooms that I could find. Unfortunately hotels in Istanbul seemed expensive. Wr were 3 adults (one couple and me) and we wanted 2 different rooms. The cheapest option was a family room with 2 bedrooms, joined... More

We stayed there in March 2014, sadly not the experience we were hoping for. The positive, the room was clean as was the breakfast area, but that's all the positive. The transfer from Ataturk Airport was not arranged even after a phone call to confirm it on the day from the airport, this left us at the mercy of the... More

Staff cannot be helpful enough, for example going up the road to find newspapers to stuff soaking shoes. Not the most attractive location, but superbly placed for major sights. Interior of good standard. Breakfast fine, remember to ask for an omelette if you want one; we were only offered one on the last morning. Rooms comfortably sized and clean.

Well designed and decorated small hotel in Sultanahmet district. It is within 3min walking distance from Blue Mosque and Agia Sofia. Staff and owners are friendly, helpfull and hospitable. Some rooms have a terrace with nice seaview. Good breakfast. Good value for money. I do recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at the Ersari Hotel for 5 nights in September 2013. This was our first trip to Istanbul. The hotel was in the old section of the city bordering the Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. A convenient location for visitors who can walk to all of the old city attractions. The hotel was... More
