“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Loved this hotel. Stayed 3 nights, got a first floor room with no view but that didn't matter at all. The location is perfect, very quiet street a stones throw from tons of bars and restaurants, and right by the blue mosque. It's quite expensive but you're paying for the location. The only niggle was the included breakfast, which was pretty basic with cereal and toast, a few cold meats/ spam and cheeses, few sorry strawberries, some warm croissants. It was ok, but I've had better. I'd still stay their again tho.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We recently stayed at the Biz Cevahir for 4 nights. Our room was very large for a room in Europe (though based on the floor plan it was the largest on the floor). The location is fantastic and is very close to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Breakfast is excellent, with a great selection of meats, cheeses, fruit, hot foods, cereal, and also toast and pastries. The hours of breakfast are generous with it lasting 7:30-10:30. Wifi in the room worked decently if I sat near the door. The hotel was quiet and the front desk staff all spoke good English.

We would not hesitate to stay there again if we returned to Istanbul.

When you are in Istanbul the location of the hotel makes the difference, this hotel is located in best area of Sultanahmet, less than 5m walking to the blue mosque & aya sofia and the tram station, the hotel is also surrounded by good restaurants and pubs.
The hotel is quiet and staff are very helpful and friendly and room was very clean and comfortable.
Will surely stay in Biz Cevahir in my next visit to Istanbul.

We loved our room with its very elegant fabrics and finishes. It was on the small side without much of a view (we knew that going in) but it served us well. The location in the Sultanhamet is perfect. The staff was extremely helpful, especially Ahmet. Only complaint? Cigarette smoke odor in our hallway almost every time we left the room. Fortunately it didn't come into our room.

My wife and I spent 6 nights here for our honeymoon in this beautiful hotel. We asked for a superior double room and were given room 115 - we found this small and it didn't seem like the one in the pictures, so I asked the receptionist, who very kindly moved us to the lobby floor room - perfect! Really spacious and clean.

The staff were really really helpful - including Ramazan who very promptly got hold of a cardboard box when we needed to pack up, and also got some string to tie some boxes together - they stayed in the same condition all the way to Manchester Airport even though they were checked-in items.

The breakfast was really nice - all the items you could possibly want & the dining room was really nice and bright.

My wife and I went to see what the "Four Seasons" was all about, which was next door - we wanted to see what the fuss was about so we asked to see a room, they showes us an executive room. We can honestly say that there was nothing to it - except a huge bill at the end! You would rather stay in hotels like Biz Cevahir.

I would definitely return here since the location was also absolutely bang on - 2-3 minute walk away from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.

Oh, one last thing - if you stay at this hotel, you MUST experience the Ottoman Hammam which is 1 minute walk from the hotel - you can't miss it. We left it right to the very end, just before getting dropped off to the airport. It was slightly expensive but totally worth it and a perfect way to the end the honeymoon

Kind Regards,
Mr Dasu

Spend 3 great nights here in April 2013. Excellent rooms, good breakfast, though coffee could be refreshed more quickly.
The staff was very helpful in pointing us to the nice places to visit and arranged dinner reservations for us.
