We specifically picked this small, fantastically located based on the reviews of the family feeling and helpful staff and were not disappointed. You can't beat this location, nor can you beat the helpfulness of the owners and staff. The price is right, it's right across from the Four Seasons Hotel, 3 minutes from the Hippodrome area which is between Blue... More

I'll try to be short. I felt like a member of the family. The staff and owners are extremely dedicated. Just that was enough to make my mind on the rating I would give. Also, the location is very very good. Oh. I forgot a coat there, they sent it back to me to Canada... FREE!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

We visited the Berk Guest House in mid-August and have never had a better experience staying at a hotel, at an incredibly affordable price. This small family-run accommodation is in a convenient neighborhood. I spent every morning on the view as I had an amazing view of the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and the water on the other side. We...

This will be a very sweet review of Berk Guest House. I wanted a comfortable moderately-priced hotel for a smooth entry into Istanbul after the long journey from San Francisco. Berk Guest House turned out to be a jet-lagged traveler's dream. It is comfortable, clean, well-managed, and safe. (There was a safe in my room but after a couple of... More

The location is great, close to historic sights, restaurants, metro, tram transport, even walking distance to bazaars. We had fun staying here - would recommend the Berk Guesthouse. Stoffel... More

We stayed for 4 nights in room #42 which is a premium room and costs a bit more-but had a great view of the Bosphorus & at night of city lights. Very helpful caring owners and staff. We would stay there again!!

Great Location in the Old Town Istanbul where several thousands of years of cultures lived prior to your arrival. Owner Yeşim is fluent in English and is a most graceful host. The cost is so low (in comparison to Four Seasons next door:$800./night) you'll have enough money left to shop all they at the Grand Bazaar which only 15 minutes... More
