5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We stayed 6 nights on the recommendation of friends and loved our stay from arrival.The rooms were great,quiet and with views of the sea and we had an excellent bfast on the terrace each morning planning our stay.Our concierge Mehmet was particularly charming fluent in English and was extraordinarily helpful with tourist advice.We would definitely go back.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

Situation is good, few minutes walking to most important places and to tramway.
Nice rooms, friendly atmosphere, wonderful breakfast. Hotel offered moderate price taxi transportation from airport to hotel.

Wonderful sea view from breakfast terrace to Marmara Sea.

You can hear railway sound, but it did not disturb us.

Street surroundings are that of old Istanbul. Good restaurants very near.

For ordinary people, who want to see Istanbul.

Location – brilliant, close to all the main sights, perhaps a 5-10 min walk to the blue mosque
Rooms – well appointed, very clean
Beds – too narrow (2’ 6”), too low, very uncomfortable
Breakfast – a selection of cheeses, eggs, beef salami, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, some cooked foods (but cold), fresh bread, fruit, cereals – all OK but not very inspired and no change each day, nothing hot offered
Beautiful views across the Bosphoros and the Blue Mosque illuminated at night
Staff – all wonderful, helpful and friendly. Mehmet (daytime), Surkan (evening) and Mehmet (night). They helped with maps, directions, keys places to visit and things to do, booked a day tour and the hamam
Disappointing that no mention was made of the airport shuttle service which they could have booked at less than half the price of the taxi for our return trip to the airport

Room Tip: we stayed in room 106, the floor under the rooftop dining room

Very nice small hotel.
Convenient position to visit the city center (10 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque).
Tram stop within easy reach.
Room was spacious and very clean, with a small sitting area.
Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Bosphorus.
Special thanks to Mehmet, very kind and helpful in providing any information.

A really friendly family hostel. Very good location. Awesome Terrance for breakfast. Hotel staff are really nice and patient to explain everything you want to know about Istanbul. They also offer very good rate for money exchange. Much better than local bank, airport and street change offices.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We spent 3 nights at the Berce Hotel when first arrived in Istanbul. We were very pleased with the central location and the clean, comfortable room we had. The roof top terrace is great for breakfast and is accessible for an afternoon cup of tea or a glass of wine in the evening.
We had a room on the main floor so we caught a bit of noise from incoming guests but overall it was not bad. The train is nearby but it didn't disturb us.
The staff are very friendly and very helpful, almost protective. There are several good restaurants in the immediate neighbourhood.
We were very pleased with the Berce and recommend it if you are planning to stay in Sultanahmet.

Room Tip: We suspect rooms above the ground floor are quieter.

If you're looking for a charming little hotel in the middle of old Istanbul, run by helpful people (who speak English), then head for the Berce Hotel in the Sultanahmet area. Rooms aren't large but are clean, staff is helpful, and you can't beat having breakfast on the rooftop terrace overlooking the Bosphorus.
