The host was very friendly and kind. The location of this guesthouse is pretty great, it is just next to Ayasofya. It's very very convenient. It has advantage in price, 60 EUR per night. However the room is quite small for me. I lived in room 12, which is just next to the reception and a bit noisy since it... More

Located close to the Galata region, location wise this Is perfect and moreover the views are amazing from up here as well. The rooms are well lit and spacious and I loved staying in it for the whole week that we were in there and the staff was perfect as they impressed us with their hospitality and services. We loved...

We had travelled to Turkey many times but never Istanbul. A friend recommended the Berk Hotel and it proved to be a brilliant recommendation. We booked room 41 (at the top of the building) and also had our own balcony. The room was authentic and modern. Beautifully clean and had all the facilities we required. Every day we received fresh... More

In September 2014 we had a special few days here that still bring back the fondest of memories and we really can't wait to return! From the warmest welcome on arrival to the heartfelt goodbye, Yesim, Ahmet, Derin and the staff made our trip to Istanbul so special and so exceptional that 6 months on we still talk about it...

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!!!!

I stayed at Berk Guest House for 4 days. At a first glance it was cute and the lady at the reception desk was quite helpful and kind. When i got in my room i was totally socked. I had paid for a double room with twin beds and air condition. Instead of this it was a single size room... More

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
