We booked the basement family room which is quite large (16m²) and has 2 single beds and 1 double bed. They put a baby bed for free. Guests are really nice, breakfast are simple but good and the terrace offers an amazing panoramic view.

I have just spent 3 nights at the Peninsula [for the second time]! Hey, if I went back that must say something right? The Peninsula Hotel is a cute little boutique hotel in the old city of Istanbul. Perfectly placed so you can easily go out each day to experience all the city has to offer. The hotel itself is... More

My wife and I just visited Istanbul and stayed in the Peninsula Hotel. No nonsense, simple, clean and very pleasant. Everybody was sincerely helpful and very friendly. We will definitely stay there again. The location is just perfect.

The Hotel Peninsula is my favorite hotel in Istanbul. I have several reasons for my opinion. 1) The staff is wonderful. They speak English very well and have always been hospitable and kind. 2) The location is great. It's just behind at the Aya Sofia and within walking distance to everything you want to see in Sultan Ahmet. 3) For... More

The hotel is located in a very good place in Istanbul, with a splendid terrace to have breakfast and a good quality-price ratio, But the best thing about it is the really helpful staff, especially Zeki, the young man (almost always) in the reception. The breakfast lady too. Really nice people, an excellent place...

Peninsula hotel has everything: excellent service and great location at an affordable price. We stayed in the top room on the 4th floor. We were surprised to not have any problems with noise despite being below the breakfast terrace and around the corner from the main street full of restaurants/bars. All of the big sites (Tokapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Aya... More

We stayed in a double room for 4 nights in mid May. Like other reviews have mentioned, Hotel Peninsula is in a great location for visiting the sites- it is literally a 2 minute walk to the front gate of Topaki Palace! It's so convenient to go back to the hotel to rest after a long day of sightseeing and... More

This hotel had been recommended to us by our son & his wife who had enjoyed their stay there previously. The location was excellent for all of the historic buildings & monuments in the Old Town. Zeki was most helpful & welcoming on reception & so was Ahmed as well as the lovely lady who served us breakfast. They were... More

My friend, Dollie, and I traveled to Turkey to celebrate our 50th birthdays from May 14-23, 2014. Zeki was fabulous and helped us with sight-seeing plans and restaurant choices. The hotel was clean and tidy and the breakfast was great- fruit, bread and jam, yogurt, etc. Plenty to fuel up for the day's excursions. Zeki assisted us with car and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Hotel Peninsula in Istanbul. We are a small boutique hotel, nestled quietly at the end of leafy laneway. We are nestled amount this city’s great historical landmarks and you will instantly transport your mind heart upon arrival. When you go to buy your morning paper, you stroll past our 489 year old Turkish Hamam, tangled with vines and moss. This truly is an immersion into an oriental parallel, and we are pleased to be able to offer you warm, friendly accommodation during your journey here. The Peninsula has become a cultural institution over the years and we look forward (“wait with four eyes” in Turkish) to welcoming you to our extended family. ... more   less
