Berce Hotel was truly an excellent place to start our first visit to Istanbul - Mehmet Kaya deserves an award for his guidance, organisation, patience, care, and attention - and made our whole holiday worthwhile.
We stayed in four different hotels during our Istanbul holiday but Berce was by far the most friendly and helpful. Mehmet, Serkan and only 2 other staff members work very hard around the clock to ensure the hotel is clean, comfortable, operational and safe; they go out of their way to ensure guests needs are met, questions are answered, and advice and assistance is provided. They made everything easy. The owner of the hotel, Yasar Bey, was also very graceful and friendly.
Berce is in an excellent location as it is walking distance from all historical sites, but still clean and quiet. The terrace is a very nice plus point, particularly at the time we visited. The bookstand had a very good collection of books and maps on Instanbul.
We would go back at any time - particularly due to the staff and their kindness.
