“White House has great location, rooms and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

My husband and I began our honeymoon in Istanbul, staying at the White House Hotel for a total of 5 nights. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the modern rooms and the service from the young staff. Elif was the main person we dealt with and she was so friendly and helpful with dinner reservations, recommendations of how to get around and what to see and also making reservations for other hotels in other parts of Turkey. Thanks Elif!!!!

Another of the hotel's main draws is its location, in the heart of Sultanahmet about a 5-10 minute walk to Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, several hammams and not too far a walk from Eminonou where all the ferries are. In any case, if you're not into exploring a city on foot, the very modern and easy-to-use tram was just down the street from the hotel.

The breakfasts were a nice added bonus too, great way to start the day. Only thing that my husband and I were discussing that would have been nice would be a rooftop terrace. Coincidentally on our last day, we heard from staff that work is beginning on a new rooftop terrace! Perfect...this place is highly recommended.

The White House Hotel is located within easy walking distance of all attractions in Sultanahmet. There can't be a better location. All hotel personnel were 100% helpful and breakfast was plentiful and easily obtained. All in all, a nice hotel in a great location with very helpful staff. Recommended.

Truly a tremendous hotel, never met staff as helpful and sweet. The location is also incredible, right next to all the major sights and a ton of great restaurants. I also stayed at the W hotel during my stay, and honestly preferred the White House!
