“The best place to stay in Istanbul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Location is wonderful - Near to all main tourist sites. The staff were wonderful, and the premises were impeccable. The room was spacious and comfortable. Our only regret, we didn't book a room with a balcony. The attention to detail by the staff was excellent - I had a surprise birthday cake from the hotel. Every day we were helped by smiling helpful people at the front desk, bell man, breakfast staff, and even the cleaners.
My husband and I like travelling and staying at boutique hotels. This is by far one of the best hotels we have stayed at. Thank you to all for your hospitality, we will definitely come back.
We give this hotel a five star recommendation!

Room Tip: As it is a small hotel the rooms are booked very early on. Ask for a room with a balcony if it is av...

Hotel is nice. Expensive for turkey, but you're paying for the location.
The location was what I was after and so it was perfect.

Staff very friendly and knowledgeable.
Breakfasts very good - I discovered a new love of honey.
Room nice, with very nice bathroom.
Quiet hotel too given its at most 200m from the three biggest tourist attractions in Istanbul.

I would recommend!

A delightful and friendly boutique hotel situated exactly where you want to be for Istanbul sightseeing. Many essential venues are within easy walking distance, e.g. Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, several museums, the Basilica Cisterna; and a tram ride or taxi gets you quickly to the others. The local district retains its old fashioned charm, & is full of good restaurants, bars & shops. The hotel is modern but with a distinctly Turkish feel, & our room was spacious, well appointed, comfortable and properly air-conditioned. It also had good Wi-Fi. The hotel only serves breakfast, so other meals have to be taken elsewhere but in this neighborhood this is an advantage. If you do want to dine in your room a nearby restaurant will oblige! Lovely hotel, strongly recommended.

Room Tip: The Superior Rooms are very spacious. Only the very top ones hae a viiew of the sea.

We stayed at Biz Cevahir for 4 nights in early July on our first trip to Istanbul. Could not be happier with our choice. From the courteous and friendly staff to the large, clean rooms, to the fantastic breakfast, Biz Cevahir gets all the details right. The location is perfect for exploring the Sultanahmet district, with many restaurants and major attractions just minutes away. You will not be disappointed!

Great hotel, impeccable service and cleanliness and an unbeatable location. Location is walking distance from all main tourist sites in Sultanahmet (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Palace) etc..
Would highly recommend a stay.
Thanks for your hospitality.

Room Tip: ask for the third floor rooms which have a view of the blue mosque.

Beautiful hotel with an incredible location (steps away from tram, Blue Mossque and Hagia Sophia), friendly and helpful staff. Small and quiet. Excellent breakfast. Decor and ambiance of a chic luxury hotel, but relaxed and friendly. Nice sized room. Highly recommended.
