We had an amazing stay at the White House Hotel on our honeymoon to Turkey, and we couldn't have wished for a better place from which to explore Istanbul.
Yes, the location is in the heart of the sights, and yes the room was beautiful, comfortable and quiet, and yes the breakfast was lovely, but the most memorable part for us will always be the amazing staff. Not only did they welcome us with flowers, wine and fruit at the start of our honeymoon, but they were genuinely interested in what we were doing each day, and helped with every aspect of the trip.
Cafer in particular went out of his way to assist us with everything from restaurant reservations (which got us the best table, since we were guests from the White House!) down to train tickets, and made sure everything was in order during our whole stay. We can't thank him enough for making us feel truly welcome both at the hotel, and in Istanbul.
When we left - a sad day - when they had finished helping us take our bags down, many of the staff appeared to come to say goodbye to us and sent us on our way with another gift as a reminder of our fantastic stay in istanbul. We certainly hope to visit again one day. We've never experienced such a personal service - these guys have got it right.
