Nice clean small, unpretentious hotel in the shadow of Topkapi, five minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. People could not have been more helpful, especially Mashallah. Shuttle from the airport--we arrived at the more distant the two--is worth the extra and was fixed up from home. Didn't notice any noise--except, of course, for the muezzin, though we... More

Stayed here flying in from the airport. Staff offered round trip airport transportation (private driver) for a surcharge, but it was by far the easiest way to get back and forth. Staff did speak english and were very helpful in answering questions and pointing us in the right direction for sights and restaurants. The rooms are basic and smaller in... More

Small rooms but friendly staff, right by everything Istanbul. Minutes from the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Also just minutes from the Basilica and other major attractions around the city. Plenty to eat and shops within walking distance. Thanks Peninsula.

Hotel Peninsula served as a perfect springboard for my first trip to Istanbul. Travelers can often be spoiled for choice in Sultanhamet but this hotel is a great selection. It is maybe a five minute walk to Sultanhament Park where you can see the Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and Hippodrome. The tram station is also within... More

When planning our trip to Istanbul, my boyfriend and I wanted to stay in a centrally located boutique hotel. While we don't need a lot of bells and whistles, cleanliness, convenience, value, and comfort are important to us. Hotel Peninsula had all of this and more. Prior to arrival we had arranged for transfer from Ataturk airport. We were pleased... More

More than friendly staff. 3. Very, very clean. 4. Cozy atmosphere. 5. Feeling safety and feeling like I am home. 6. I can't wait to... More

This place is clean, the staff are kind and helpful. Breakfast is the standard Turkish breakfast and is complimentary. The hotel reps suggest great and cost conscious Turkish baths, tours and restaurants. Area is safe.
