We were referred to the Terrace by a friend who said the owner and manager/receptionist had been very helpful to her as well as other traveling friends in the past. We could have done cheaper, we could have done glitzier, but we went with the idea of kindness, helpfulness and warm greetings. We were not disappointed! Kemal, the receptionist seemed... More

Dogan bey and his team made it possible, that even with a group of multipy sensorial disabled (no wheelies!) people we could visit Istanbul. They found a home there for a week and memories that still accompany them now, over two years ago. Also as privat guests we have been there many times now. And each time it was a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Terrace Guesthouse the late 90s and returned for 5 days in early September this year. Sometimes places are not as good as you remember, however Terrace is every bit as good as we remembered and more! Thank you Dogan, Kemal & Nelly for your wonderful hospitality and assistance, we loved our stay. Spotlessly... More

Location cannot get any better, If you want a home right in the middle of the sultanahmet district, this is the place. Superb guiding by Dogan and Kemal if you need any advice, also on... More

Several years ago my husband and I spent our honeymoon in Istanbul at the Terrace. This time I returned with my mother and sister and enjoyed sharing this special place with them.. Dogan and Kemal went out of their way to make us feel at home. Bus tickets to Kas were purchased for us in advance to insure seats and... More

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

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.
