Barbera Hotel has to be one of the best hotels that I have seen on my numerous travels. It is in a very convinient location with a picturesque terrace view and all of the main attractions almost literally around the corner; it has amazing staff, which is always willing to go above and beyond in order to make their guests’ stay as pleasant and as convenient as possible; and last but not least: breakfast. Breakfast will pleasantly surprise you everyday. If you ever plan on getting even a short glimpse of Istanbul’s magic, then Barbera Hotel will surely make that glimpse as bright and as magical as a sunrise over Bosphorus. P.S. I would like to thank Jenna and her staff for making our stay in Istanbul so pleasant. Hope to be back soon.

Istanbul has been on my list of places to visit for a long time, this past January I went for three ngihts with a friend and we had an absolute blast. Spotlessly clean hotel, and very helpful staff. I was surprised at how great the location was in the "old" town portion, right by train station, and not a long walk to the main centre area or "new" town. The breakfast is absolutely great, we really ate lots every morning to prepare us for a day of sight seeing and walking around. I was sad to leave this hotel, lots more to explore in Istanbul!

Me and my sister were in this hotel this month. I can say that the staff is more than friendly and kind. Ufuk, Kursad, and two ladies(front desk and girl in the restaurant) were so helpful and professional. They assist us with everything. Kursad brought us fresh ornge juice at 2AM when we arrived in the hotel, fot check-in. Lady from the front desk(forgot the name) even gave us the Istanbul card to help us drive with the tram. Breakfast is good, location is excellent. Good job Barbera team, and see you next time!

All I want when I travel in a new city is to stay in a quiet & nice place near the most central part of town to be able to rest after my days spent walking. That's why I loved Barbera hotel: very comfortable & very central hotel, with very friendly & very helpful staff. The greatest places to visit in the city are just around the corner & yet the room was very quiet. As I also wanted to explore some not so famous places, I was happy the tramway station was right there too. The breakfast was so tasty I had a hard time to leave the table! I also really appreciated the recommendations & tips to get the best out of my stay.
