This old style hotel enjoys a wonderful setting and views of the sea and the Asian side of Istanbul. On its terrace and the pool area, one feels miles away from a bustling city, as if strapped inside a time capsule where time stopped. One can see some parts of the hotel were refurbished, but the rooms would need a... More

Merit Halki Palace is a peaceful, tasteful and pretty hotel situated on Heybeliada, one of the Princess Islands at 15 kilometers from the city. The hotel is an authentic wooden construction with a lovely swimming pool, terraces and garden. Great breakfast buffet and friendly staff.

Halki Palace is very professional in welcoming guests either families or companies. Many companies have their meetings at this hotel specially during off season. Its meeting facilities are very good. We have been staying at this hotel for many years. Our last stay was in April 2014. Its general manager Bülent Bey is a very professional person. He has great... More

We stayed there on the new years eve, attended the dinner night and the brunch buffet next morning. Very friendly staff, clean hotel, I guess it is the best alternative on the island. 2015 prices are 250 tl per day per double room including breakfast.

Arriving at this beautiful hotel on horse and carriage was a wonderful experience. Walking in was like entering a film set for an Agatha Christie movie with glittering chandeliers, fabulous furniture, parrots and then the fantastic view over the sparkling swimming pool to the Bosphorus beyond and Istanbul skyline. The room was light and airy with great views, facilities and... More

This Palace is a very quite place to stay. If you need a rest you should go for this Palace. Rooms are not comfortable but who cares rooms because of view. The view is outstanding. Birds are singing around. Also green and blue dancing. It is a peaceful place to stay if you are not obsess about comfort you should... More

A very nice historic hotel with the charme of past times at a great location. The rooms are ok and clean but a bit aged. They don't have air conditioning which can be a problem. Service and food are mediocre. But the atmosphere and views are magnificent. Very close to green beach club. You will need to take a faeton... More

Very impressed with the staff and location of the hotel. Hotel is old small palace. It is located at the island near Istanbul. Island has no cars!! Perfect for relaxing. Sea bus takes you kabatas in 45 minutes then tram takes you to old city in 15! Sea taxi goes to main shopping street for 100 USD.
