“Fabulous boutique property perfectly located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

During a recent 5 day holiday trip I have chosen this hotel based upon several excellent online recommendation. It was the right choice, it is excellently located in fashionable Nisantasi. The hotel manager Kevin is an amazing host and a treats you like family.
The buffet breakfast is probably one the most elegantly set up I have experienced.
The rooms are neat and functional. The hotel is surround by the best shops in town and it is very easy to take a cab to surroundings quarters such as Taksim.
I would recommend this property to any leisure and/or business traveller looking for an elegant boutique hotel in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room facing the back since the front street may be a bit loud due to the late openin...

The service was ok and the location is superb. Close to many good places to have a bite and in the middle of the shopping district. The rooms are clean and the housekeeping staff are great. However, the front desk staff need to be more up to date with what to do in Istanbul as the Concierge was a bit disapointing. I will not stay at this hotel again, however, please try it out it might be pleasing to you.

You see a hotel, you get a feeling.......I thought this hotel looked nice, however was rather apprehensive because I couldn't help but compare it to the Four Seasons at the Bosphorus where we usually stay.

Having stayed there for the past 2 weeks, I have to say that while both hotels are so different (this is a boutique hotel), it exceeded all my expectations - and more! I have to say that the measure of a hotel is determined by the quality of the management. In Kevin (Hotel Manager) they have an outstanding professional who is hands on, and there to ensure your stay is memorable. He epitomises what sound management is all about. Kevin, you are a champion of the House Hotels in Istanbul and my wife (Ozge) and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your Team for making us feel part of the House family. From the room, to the reception staff, the breakfast selection and the restaurant staff, I could fault nothing at all - and I am a very demanding customer.

If you are considering staying at The House Hotel Nisantasi you should. You will certainly be impressed, and made to feel as an individual rather than as a 'room number'.

Once again Kevin, thank you for such a wonderfully stay at your excellent property. Cok cok tesekkur ederim.

This hotel is an intimate chic location with very professional & friendly "home" like hospitality! We were in a lovely junior suite...the design elements in the entire hotel are wonderful & artsy. The staff is very attentive, paying attention to all our customized needs & requests. The GM is very hands on with his suggestions during breakfasts & at the end of our stay the whole team felt like an extended family. The room service food & the food at the affiliated house cafes is delicious & some of the best we've had ever. The staff at breakfast took care of making us warm croissants apart from the wonderful spread of local & intl items. Overall, with a lovely neighbourhood in a world class city & an amazing staff, this hotel is a place we can't wait to come back to!!!!

Room Tip: The junior suite is excellent!

Well appointed city centre hotel, with friendly and professional staff. The hotel is in a great location, particularly for those who have visited Istanbul several times and want to explore more than just the major attractions. The staff were particularly helpful in setting up little excusions and booking restaurants. The breakfast spread is also one of the best that have seen at a boutique hotel.

This is a great little hotel with a great location (especially if you want to shop) and fantastic staff. On a street lined with shops, restaurants, bars, art galleries etc We were sat down and given the full introduction to the city by the manager who also wrote notes and names of places that we needed to see on a map. Still use that map every time i go back! Booked The House Boat for lunch on the Bosporus. Amazing. Not to be missed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT facing the construction

Dear Guest,

We are very happy you enjoyed your experience with us and had a nice time in Istanbul

I agree with you that the location of our hotel is just perfect can’t be better, we are in the middle of fine shopping and nice cafes and restaurants
Abdi İpekçi Caddesi is our Turkish “Madison Avenue or 5th Avenue” very seen to be seen

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our recommendations, we are always trying to give “taylor made” service and recommendations to our guests.
As you mentioned we sit together with the guest and discuss their needs and organize a personalized cultural, gastronomic and night life program.

To do a private Boshporus tour The Hosue Boat is very nice, the boat goes very close to the shore so you can see all the beautiful wooden “Yalı” some of them are Art Deco style.

We hope to see you again and welcome you back to The House Hotel Nişantası

I've stayed at the House Hotel twice in the last month as I've been to Istanbul on business.
It feels more like staying in the home of a very stylish friend than in a hotel. The rooms are beautiful, with nespresso coffee machines and free mineral water. And, an incredibly nice touch (if you're a chocolate lover) is that a box of chocolates is waiting for you in your room - a welcome gift from the hotel.
The bathroom, which has a fabulous shower, is all mirrors except for the marble floor and sink (the bathroom products, made especially for the hotel, are great). The mirrors can be a bit confusing initially, but you soon get over it.
Breakfast is delicious
The lighting is subdued, the bed enormous and all in all its very conducive for a romantic stay. I was there on business and needed to work in the evenings - there is a good sized desk, but there's not really enough lighting around that area, so working at my laptop was quite hard on the eyes. But The House Hotel Nistantasi, and the surrounding areas, have too many distractions for anyone to spend too much time working!

This is what makes us different compare to international chain hotels, we like to provide "tailor made" service to our guests according to their needs and feelings.
We are happy to read you enjoyed our friendly & genuine service.

Your comment concerning the lighting will be shared with AUTOBAN Design, our interior designers.

We are happy that you were satisfied and had a beautiful stay with us, very much look forward to welcoming you back to your “home” in Istanbul.
