Incredible staff, really helpful and nice. They make you feel like home. The location couldn't be better, very central but quiet neighbourhood, close to the main atractions, restaurants and to the metro.

We had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at this guest house over 2 occasions during our holiday. On arrival from Istanbul airport we were met at the door by a lovely lady Malisa who bent over backwards helping us settle in, advising us about the city, and generally keeping us entertained. It would have been quite a challenge as... More

No doubt a great guesthouse in a strategic location as most attractive sites are just nearby. As we are coming from Sabiha airport, it took a bit long to reach the hotel, with bus and then taxi. And, offered more varieties to choose for breakfast compare to other hotels that we stayed in Turkey.

We spent two nights in the Berk Guesthouse. The hospitality of the owner and of all the staff were excellent, they were very helpful, nice and made us feel like at home. The location is great as it is only 5 minutes walk from the major attractions (topkapi palace, blue mosque, agia Sofia, etc.). We slept in Room 42 which... More

After concluding a business trip with my wife in Taksim, I had an extra night to spend in Sultanahmet. I was at first drawn to Berk House by its location: hard by the Four Seasons and only blocks away from the area's major attractions, Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque & Topkapi. Although check-in was at 11:00, my room was ready... More

We loved this hotel! Located close to tram station and all the major attractions in Istanbul. When I mentioned it was our honeymoon, they went out of their way to make our experience special and memorable, which they did. We got the beautiful room with a terrace from which you can see the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sofia. Rooms... More

Our two night stay was a little short...but it couldn't have been in a better place: location, service, staff and breakfast- all good. What topped off the experience was a surprise birthday gift- thanks to Berk guesthouse for the rest we needed and the convenience we wanted.
