“the best hotel in Istanbul in Sultanhamet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This hotel exceeded all of our expectations, exceptionally clean and so welcoming, beautiful views over the Golden Horn On the first day Fathi sat down with us for around 2 hours and planned our trip with us... he was so informative, but not pushy with anything, amazing service, amazing staff, and I would 100% recommend if you are going to Istanbul, you should stay here. 10 minutes from all the main attractions, amazing rooftop views. It had a lovely feel to the hotel, very homely, and family run, ,not like the major chain hotels. I have a rule of never staying at the same hotel twice, but because of the friendliness of the guys here, I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Fathi and all your staff for everything, we had an amazing time.

Room Tip: we had 2 rooms, one with 3 beds which was large and spacious, and one with 2 beds, which was a littl...

This was my first time in Istanbul,and I was lucky to get this hotel. First,if you are going as tourist to Istanbul search no more,this is the best location in whole Istanbul,especially this hotel because it is located in street full of hotels and restaurants,and it is about 20 m from the noisy part of street,just perfect. Also hotel is located cca 4 minutef of blue mosque ,and everything is near. Staf is friendly and helpfull,realy good guys,rooms are realy good but I would sugest superior room if you can aford it. For the first night I stayed in superior room ,and other two nights in standard room,room I originaly booked. Breakfast is epic,and you can find there everything,great,just great! So belive me,this is the best hotel you can find,and for that price a steal.

Room Tip: Take superior room

We stayed at this place in July 2012, and fell in love with the city, the citizens and this hotel.

When my wife, as a part of her 50 years celebration, wanted to travel to somewhere in Europe for a few days, she chose Istanbul and Best Point Hotel. Together with a lady at same age the had a wonderful time in the city and in the hotel. Fatih and the rest of the staff did everything to make this stay as comfortable as last year.

They won't hesitate to warmly recommend this hotel. It is perfectly located, has well equipped and spacious rooms and the service is superb!

We stayed 4 nights at the Best Point and could not have been happier. The staff was fantastic and eager to please, the breakfast was fantastic with lots of selection. Complimentary cocktails, hot beverages and snacks throughout the day only made things better. My wife loved the Turkish hazelnut spread they served at breakfast, we searched the area for it and could not find it so we asked the front desk and the gentleman working offered to go out and buy some for her on his time off. Unbelievable, we were blown away.

Travelled with son and daughter-in-law. The hotel is situated in walking distance to "everything" in the old city, for instance The Blue Mosque, and still in a quiet neighborhood. A small hotel with a great atmosphere. The best service ever with a very nice staff. The hotel has a cosy garden right beside the reception. Nice to sit there for a glass of wine. We were surprised with the extras that are included, such as wine and food in the afternoon. Breakfast is served at the top floor, which has a wonderful terrace. A good variety in the dishes - everyone will fine a favorite! We can give the best recommondations for this hotel. The very best recommandation is perhaps that we already have booked the same hotel and the same room in February 2014!

Fabulous. I stayed for 6 nights in the Best Point Hotel in the Old City in Istanbul. This is a fantastic location in walking distance to all the ancient city sites. The hotel is a family run business and this is evident from their dedicated, high quality service. Everyone is really friendly and cannot be helpful enough. As I have had a back injury, stairs are an issue for me. There is no elevator, so they shuffled around bookings to give me a low level room following my request when booking. There is a lovely breakfast room and terrace with a view of the nearby ancient sites and of boats on the Bosphorous. A fresh and lovely start each day. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff to do and they usually offered before I had a chance to ask.
When returning to Istanbul I will definitely stay at the Best Point Hotel and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower level room if stairs are an issue for you
