This was a great hotel that supplied me and my family with a beautiful room, 24/7 free tea and coffee in the room and at the garden rooftop, great hotel view and a lovely open buffet breakfast. The staff were amazing especially Hakan who was very welcoming, always happy to help and provided us the best service including tips on travelling from attractions to another and best sites to visit. Definitely recommend.

We spent three nights in this very nice hotel in the heart of Istanbul. Excellent service from all staff. The manager and owner welcomed us with a drink and upgraded without us even ask. Something you don’t see very often. Our room was very clean which is what attracted me in the first place as I read the reviews before choosing our hotel. The breakfast was very complete. With cold and hot menu. The terrace where you have it has a lovely view of the Hagia Sophia and the staff there are lovely. Toushe was very warm and kind to us, also Brok in the reception. All of the staff was extremely helpful. They make you feel at home. The location I would say is perfect to visit the main attractions in Istanbul. You can walk to the ferry’s as it’s not very far. I would recommend the hotel with no hesitation.

We stayed for 4 nights, everything was very good. We arrived night, the manager was waiting for us at the hotel, who gave us a free upgrade to the room, receiving a deluxe one. All staff very nice, welcoming and friendly. Very nice and very clean room! The only thing I didn't like very much was the breakfast which, due to covid 19, was not a buffet .. I am sure that if I have the opportunity, I will return to the White House Hotel !!!!
