We stayed at the Seven Hills Hotel for seven nights from February 17th to 24th 2012 and totally loved the experience.
For us, it was the first time we had ventured away from the big chains and opted for a boutique hotel experience and if this is what all boutique hotels are like (I highly doubt it), then the big chains should be out of business by now...
On arrival, we were instantly upgraded to the Presidential Suite which was a room of generous proportions and ample amenities, even if the jacuzzi didn't work. We didn't complain since the cold weather meant we weren't so keen on using it anyway.
The staff at the hotel are all friendly and extremely helpful. Sechkin, Ozan and Cemal are truly interesting people and great for a quick chat about almost anything. They are always willing to advise on what to do, where to go, how to get there and also what to avoid, where not to go, and so on. Their attention to detail was superb - we were using a bed-cover as a prayer mat the first day, and on the second day we found a prayer mat in the room without even having asked for one!
The location of the hotel is also to die for. It is literally a stone's throw from the Hadja Sofia, the Blue Mosque and several other attractions like the Basilica Cistern and so forth. The Grand Bazar is a short walk away, and the Spice Bazar can be approached on foot or very conveniently by taking the tram from the nearby tram station.
The hotel offers a sumptuous breakfast and the rooftop terrace and restaurant has a fantastic view of the sea, the Blue Mosque and the Hadja Sofia. To top it all up, they also serve great food!
We left the hotel thanking all the staff and promising to come again! If you're going to Istanbul, look no further: Seven Hills has it all!
