“Intimate, homey hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This small but comfortable and inviting hotel in the Sultanahmet, Istanbul was a great find. We had a lovely room on the second floor with balconies, decorated with Turkish rugs on the hardwood floor and attractive furnishings. I would recommend staying on the second or third floors if possible. The hotel was well located within easy walking distance of the major sights but far enough away to be in a quiet neighborhood. Our breakfast in the rooftop restaurant provided a pleasant way to start our day. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient, and we enjoyed having an opportunity to have some interesting conversation with Mehmet in particular.

Really enjoyed this hotel, good location for the main tourist area, excellent views from the roof terrace when having the free breakfast. Staff friendly. Would recommend staying on the upper floors. Istanbul is a fantastic place to visit and we felt completely safe day and night, Sultanahmet is a fantastic destination for walking round due to most of the major sites being in close proximity of each other. Also the turkish meze is superb.











staff friendly,

It's our first trip to Istanbul and I discovered that I had managed to inadvertently book a basement room. It was very definitely my mistake as it was clearly declared on the paperwork - I just hadn't noticed. Despite that the hotel kindly waived the cancellation fee and couldn't have been more helpful while we found a nearby alternative.

I've no doubt this hotel would have been a very hospitable place to stay, but can only rate it on the excellent quality of the staff.

We did a lot of hotel research before visiting Istanbul. It was our first trip to Turkey and we knew we wanted to stay in Sultanhamet. We chose the Berce Hotel and stayed there for six nights. We were very happy with our decision. Our very comfortable room was on the third floor with three balconies. It was warm during the time we were there, we left one of the balcony doors open during the night and had a breeze from the Marmara Sea. The morning call to prayer did not bother us at all, it is heard everywhere in Istanbul. To us it was part of the experience of staying in such a vibrant busy city of approximately 16 million residents. We liked the hotel's location being close to the main sights but far enough away to feel like we were in a neighborhood rather than surrounded by tour buses.

We found the staff to be very cordial and helpful. There was always someone at the front desk, day and night, ready to answer any questions we had. Mehmet and Serkan were both extremely pleasant and friendly. We also enjoyed meeting Yasar, the owner of the hotel, who came to breakfast each day we were there. We liked the breakfasts very much, the fresh honeycomb was a standout. The rooftop terrace was very pleasant, eating breakfast there was a great way to start the day. One evening we ordered some food from a nearby restaurant and ate our dinner on the terrace with a bottle of wine from the hotel's selection.

We have very fond memories of our stay at the Berce Hotel and would not hesitate to stay there again if we ever return to Istanbul

Many thanks to all the Trip Advisor members who warmly recommended this hotel ! I'd like to add yet another recommendation to the collection. My daughter and I were delighted to discover this cozy hotel located within a short walking distance from the key sights in Istanbul. Since we only had one day to visit the city, we particularly appreciated the advice of Mehmet at the reception. He gave us a handy map with the main tourist attractions clearly indicated on it, he reserved a table for us at a nearby restaurant for dinner, he arranged private transport to our cruise ship. He made everything so much easier for us during our too-brief visit. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfast buffet varied and served in pleasant surroundings. What more can one want?

We stayed in Berce hotel at the beginning of October 2013. We had wonderful time there. The room and the hotel were very clean, hot water with strong pressure in the shower. The breakfast was excellent with big variety and high quality products; the dining room is on the top balcony with view to the Bosferos. The stuff was hospitable, friendly and happily helps us to get around, book restaurants and more. The location of the hotel is very good: close to the highlights in a very quiet street. We would love to come again.

Although we stayed in the basement room with top windows we had marvelous experience from the stuff, the clean place, the breakfast and the location.

Room Tip: We stayed at the basement room with top windows to the street. The street and the area are very quie...
