The sea view room and its quiet location is the right place for you to relax and experience Istanbul. breakfast makes you feel at home. The owner and staff are always ready to help.

Without doubt my favorite hotel so far in Istanbul! After falling in love with Penthouse room I booked this hotel and the magic began. A deluxe sea view room with its private terrace and spa tub where you can relax admiring the sea. Hotel poem concept takes you in a journey through littérature and poetry, design has been so well planned. From the beginning until the last day welcome was so warm by the staff! They are all professional, kind and at our service with smile, that makes the difference definitely! For breakfast lovers as I am, Zeynep the owner is cooking everything by herself every morning with love. Will miss the Pisi and menemen! For those who wish to visit Istanbul while enjoying slow life in a quality boutique hotel, go go go without any hesitation. Thanks again to all staff!

The hotel is very near to Sultanahmet, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia. Staff were very professional, helpful and the owners are very friendly. The breakfast is very rich, and diversified from the previous day. It is the second time we stayed here and we will be back every time to POEM.

Perfect location: close to Sultanahmet and very quite. Delicious breakfast. Interesting styling of the hotel, helpful staff. The room was newly furbished and had all we need. The sea view was great if you look at the horizon. If you look below than you could see not very nice courtyard. But it has nothing to do with the hotel. The only downside was that the door to the bathroom opened inside which was not comfortable as the bathroom in our room was quite small.

Hotel Poem is just perfect! From the super cute and well thought out design and decor of each room to the delicious homemade breakfasts to the location, we couldn't have been happier with it. Incredible staff and service, we were sad to check out as it felt like home ; ) We can't wait to go back!
