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

For my first time in Istanbul I wanted to stay at a practical hotel with good service, clean and centrally located. Well...Berk Guest House passed with flying colors and surpassed expectations. Location was perfect, it's strategically located in the heart of Istanbul which will allow you to walk to all the important sights. Berk's owners were great hosts, I got... 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.

Just returned from a wonderful stay in the Berk Guest House. The hotel is set in a great location in the Sultanahmet district and only a 5 minute walk away from the major sights (Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque and many others). We found all the hotel staff very friendly, the room was clean and the location... More

We stayed here in April 2014. It was our first stop after a long flight. We had asked for airport pickup, and were thrilled to find our name held by a pleasant young fellow in the hectic arrivals lounge. We were welcomed, and given great advice about where to go, advice that suited our travel needs. We stayed in room... More

I stayed here for eight nights in October (finally getting around to writing the review!) and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is very comfortable and clean, owned by a lovely couple who speak excellent English and who are very helpful with directions, ideas, etc. The front desk staff were all kind and helpful and spoke English. The cleaning staff did a... More
