The two of us spent three nights at the White House Hotel in Istanbul. It was an exceptional experience in every respect: 1. The Location...The hotel is within walking distance to the wonderful sights of the area, including the great mosques, the Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, the Hippodrome, and many more. 2. The Facility...The hotel rooms and public areas are beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, well-maintained, and exceedingly comfortable without being ostentatious. 3. The Breakfast...The rooftop buffet breakfast is excellent in both quality and quantity. It features dishes that will please every palate. 4. The Atmosphere...The hotel's ambience is calm, peaceful, and subdued. It is a haven from the energy-packed heartbeat of Istanbul. 5. The Staff...The hotel personnel are well-trained, friendly, helpful, very professional, and highly efficient, but not obsequious. We look forward to a return.

There are three reasons you should stay at the White House Hotel. It is a small boutique hotel with very attentive and helpful staff; nothing is too much trouble. The hotel arranged our transfer from the airport; because of appalling traffic this took over 2 hours but when we arrived the staff were in the street to help with our bags which was s nice touch. The location is very good as you can walk to the Grand Bazzar, the major mosques and the Topkaji palace, so you avoid the need for taxis which easily become jammed in the traffic. The tram stop is a 3 minute walk so you can easily explore further away The hotel has a wonderful rooftop breakfast terrace. The breakfast is in the room rate and the view is good with a glimpse of the Bosporus and lots of domes and minarets. So great location, great service and very reasonably priced

We had a great stay at the White House. The hotel is immaculate and well named The staff, from those cleaning it, to those working behind the desk, are a credit to the hotel and all deserve to be praised. Taner was especially courteous, and helpful, but so were many others. The location was very central and an easy walk to the main sites. We were very happy with our choice of accommodation.
