I returned to the Terrace Guesthouse several times in the past two months as its always a pleasure to stay there. There is a great deal of competition in Sultanmet nowadays but I keep on coming back because of the location and the honesty and trustworthiness of the owner Dogan and the manager Kemal. Dogan and Kemal are more than... More

Rooms with magnificent views especially the top room, great breakfast in a beautiful sunny place over looking the Bosporus, air conditioning for easy sleeping, in a quiet street with little street noise, beautiful carpets lining most walls, very clean bathrooms and rooms but the best thing about this guesthouse was the friendliness of Dogan who was always willing to help...

Such a friendly welcome from Dogan and Kemal, after their helpful emails answerig my queries about avoiding queues for museums, Topkapi and Hagia Sophia by buying museum passes. And once we arrived they helped us with so much more - where to eat, where to shop, tram routes etc. – nothing was too much trouble. We were entranced by the... More

A wonderful guesthouse located right near all the main attractions in Sultanahmet. The views from the breakfast room were fantastic. Kemal and Dogan gave us daily restaurant recommendations for places all over the city including on the Asian side and every single one was a gem. We enjoyed our stay and definitely plan to return.

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...

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
