Located right by the Blue Mosque, Toakpi Palace and Aya Sofia. Staff are friendly but have a habit of quoting all prices in euro (when I was here they were supposed to be working with the new turkish lira), they also have a constant stream of conversations from their front door (which was above my room) mainly with the Handehan hotel opposite. I had requested a quiet room but it's not a very quiet hotel - i actually had a room with an ajoining door to the next door room. There are no TVs in the rooms or kettle. The hotel is fresh and homey. The breakfast is good and the upper terrace has amazing views over the Bosphorous, Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Hotel Peninsula in Istanbul. We are a small boutique hotel, nestled quietly at the end of leafy laneway. We are nestled amount this city’s great historical landmarks and you will instantly transport your mind heart upon arrival. When you go to buy your morning paper, you stroll past our 489 year old Turkish Hamam, tangled with vines and moss. This truly is an immersion into an oriental parallel, and we are pleased to be able to offer you warm, friendly accommodation during your journey here. The Peninsula has become a cultural institution over the years and we look forward (“wait with four eyes” in Turkish) to welcoming you to our extended family. ... more less
