Just a word of thanks to Dogan,Kemal and Nellie who treated us like kings while we stayed at the Terrace guesthouse it was our first real family holiday together and it was great. The situation of the guesthouse and the views from above was fantastic. Most sights were a short walk away and the rest close enough to get to... More

Ideally situated in Sultanahmet. Simple and unfancy, on top of the unbeatable price/quality ratio, the personnel was so welcoming, kind, and helpful! As other reviews mention it, there is also a gorgeous view in the breakfast room. For those who cannot stand the heat, all the rooms have aircon which is a huge plus for a calm and cosy little...

Stayed another week as I was in Istanbul to celebrate my 70th birthday. Room was clean, and Nice breakfast With a superb view over St. Sophia and the Blue mosque. Very centrally located and given good advice by the staff where to go in Istanbul, where to eat and just about everything you want about this magnificient city.

Terrace Guesthouse is an excellent place to stay right in the historic Sultanahmet District. It was easy to walk to the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia, the important museum and other sites, and local restaurants. There are 8 rooms and a breakfast room on the top floor with a spectacular view of the sea. We enjoyed talking with Dodrun,... More

I requested a room with a view and boy did we get it! I visited the room below us where my coworker stayed and though it was nice, it did not have the amazing view. so If you are going to stay at this property, be sure to get the top room. The weather was very cold and the heat... More

Just spent 4 nights at Terrace Guesthouse at the recommendation of a friend who has stayed there several times. Right from my initial contact with Dogan and Kemel everything was perfect. Dogan answered my emails from New Zealand instantly and was very helpful - they arranged for an airport pickup / drop off also. Location can't be beaten - 5... More

We enjoyed our initial four night stay at Terrace so much that we came back for two more nights at the end of our trip! The staff is SO friendly and helpful - they responded promptly to emails from the US, gave accurate quotes and went out of their way to assist tired and hungry travelers, letting us check in... More

First contact with the Terrace Guest house was by email while I was searching for a place to stay right in the centre of old Istanbul. Somewhere like the places you can read about in an Orhan Pamuk novel with interesting streets and fascinating individuals. I had an immediate friendly response. Kemal answered and said he would reserve a room... More

This is one of the best spots in the old city to feel and absorb the ambience. The manager and staff could not be more helpful - good english from behind the desk. The breakfast area is unbeatable with an uninterrupted 360° view from four storeys up. The breakfast, itself, is local and brilliant: prepared and served by a lady... More
