My sister, cousin, sister-in-law and myself went to Istanbul in october. We payed for pickup from the airport which was fine. We arrived pretty late and were welcomed by the daily manager. He seemed nice, although a bit too eager for us. The place is not as big as we expected, the rooms were tidy and nice, but there was... More

I have now been travelling for 4 months and this is by far the nicest place I have stayed at during this time! Easy and quick to organise the booking with reminder notice on upcoming stay and arrival information (very helpful). I was welcomed with so much warmth and found myself immediately more at home rather than in a guesthouse.... More

We went to Istanbul on a long weekend trip and stayed at this cosy little hotel in Sultanhament, just close to the seaside. The Ahmet Efendi Evi is at walking distance from virtually all the main historical buildings in the old town. It’s also easy to reach by public transport, as it takes about 10 minutes by walk to get... More

This was our first trip to Istanbul. We chose this hotel through the internet and the gods must have been smiling on us. We were warmly greeted by Yousuf (not sure if this is correct spelling) who insisted on taking our heavy bags up to the 2nd floor to our room with a view of the a Mosque. During our... More

Just returned from a visit to Istanbul, where I stayed at the Ahmet Efendi Evi, convenient located in the Sultanahmet "old city" section. From the moment I arrived until my departure 4 days later, my hosts were the epitome of hospitality. Whatever my needs were met with professionalism and courtesy, from booking airport transfers, providing directions and restaurant recommendations. My... More

The positives are it is scrupulously clean and well presented. That guy Yousuf whom we saw most is dedicated and keeps things orderly and clean. Downsides are tea and coffee making not available and believe me you need this after a trek around Sultan - Ahmet and its numerous attractions. Further the Shower in the twin room my son and...

best decision ever. The location was perfect. It felt like being in a quiet villiage, while in reality you are only a few feet from the blue mosque. What makes this hotel even better is the customization of your trip by the staff. They know exactly where to go, how to get there, and what to see and will help... More

Hotel is cute B&B in the center of Istanbul, walking distance to the most known sites. The room and bathrooms are small but clean and comfy, I went with my girlfriend and we spent all the time out, only slept in our room. It is about 10 min walking distance to Blue Mosque and most of the sites. Upon check... More

I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel this year the month of February, I arrived after a complicated transfer and was feeling very uneasy as I was on my own. When I arrived I was greeted at the door and made to feel more than welcome, I was assured everything would be okay and I would be very... More

This small hotel is family run. Located on a quiet street in Sultan Ahmet area it's close to all major attractions. Rooms are comfortable, spotlessly clean and the staff is very helpful. Highly recommended.
