“Best Point? EVERYTHING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Arrived at the Best point hotel on 17th January for a one week stay with my boyfriend. From the moment we checked in we were treated with so much friendliness and courtesy. We had room 105 which is a deluxe suite with an en suite Hamman. Very spacious room and very quiet, really comfortable bed, mini bar and sky tv. You could have tea any time of day and night, they even made me a hot water bottle one night, there was always snacks around - mezze in the evening and cakes and wine as well. The breakfast was gorgeous I loved the Borek and there was lots of choice for all different tastes. The location is fantastic really quiet street but got restaurants close by, and only about 100m from Blue mosque and Aya Sophia and the main area of Sultanahmet. Very easy to get around. I also felt very safe walking around in this area. The hotel staff were always friendly and on hand to help and give advice on travelling around and where to go. If you want to travel outside Sultanahmet then get a travel card from one of the Kiosks it costs 6.50 Lira and you get discount rail, bus and ferry travel and you can return it at the end of the holiday and get 6 lira for it. Definitely a good idea to save money! I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay welcome and a very memorable one. xx

We could not have found a better place to stay for our vacation.
The bathroom are nice and very clean, the decor of the bedrooms is a bit "shiny", but nothing you don't get used to within minutes. The location is perfect, as are the explanations and suggestions of the staff.
The last day they opened breakfast half an hour early because we had to leave. Hard to finish better!

After viewing many on-line hotel sites, I choose the Best Point Hotel and was not disappointed. This is an excellent hotel and would recommend unhesitatingly it to anyone. It's location is great; there are a multitude of restaurants and shopping on the same street as the hotel, as well as on nearby streets. It is just a few blocks from the Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Bascilca Cistern, a tram line (& more shopping) & the "Hop-On Hop-Off" bus tour stop. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and especially the owner, Ceyhun Akdeniz. Upon our arrival were greeted by refreshments and then Ceyhun sat down with us and explained the hotel's services, the "ins & outs" of shopping in Istanbul, as well as the what & where to avoid being "ripped-off". The staff was always friendly and responded to any of our requests with a smile. The breakfast was outstanding with lots of choices and plenty of food, served on the lovely rooftop terrace with a view of the ocean & Blue Mosque. Since this hotel is a converted turn-of-the-century home [Ceyhun's family home], the rooms will be smaller than the norm and there is no elevator. But the rooms are well appointed & very clean and the staff & service more than make up for any lack of room size or elevator. I've stayed in 4 & 5 star hotels which didn't have the service and friendly staff that the Best Point possesses.

Room Tip: If you have Mobil issues, ask for the ground floor rooms.

The best thing about hotel is certainly it's location. All major attractions of Istanbul are within 5 minutes walk. Also a tram station is nearby, so it's not a problem to get anywhere. The staff is above any expectations, very helpful. The hotel offers quite a lot of free of charge stuff, such as 5 o'clock buffet with free cookies, tea and wine and many other pleasant things. Breakfasts are simple, but good ones., The only thing which was irritating for me is that we have stayed in the room for four, which is situated in nearby building. Since we were there in the end of december , it was quite cold in the room and especially in the toilets. Also since the room is situated not in the hotel itself, you will have to walk through usual building where Turkish people live. I can't say that it is disquisting, but I would prefer to stay in the hotel itself. Anyway, this situation was abovementioned by hotel, and they have the only room for four, so it was my dicesiton to stay there. I would certainly recommend Best Point to those people who come to Istanbul to visit attractions.

Room Tip: Since Best Point is situated right under Blue Mosque, you will be woken up by Adhan early in the mor...

This centrally located hotel exceeded all of our expectations. After MUCH research, we chose Best Point for our family vacation to Istanbul in June '12. We traveled with all three of our kids (18, 8, 5) and thus stayed in the separate apartment next to the hotel. It was large, with a full kitchen and plenty of space for our family. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the super friendly front desk staff and check in was quick and easy. Our luggage was taken to our room by a valet and we sat down to some tea in the lobby while the Manager(Gokhan) asked us about our plans, where we wanted to go and how he could help make it all happen. At no time was it a "hard sell" but rather he took the time to give us his opinion on which things were worth our time and how to better arrange our itinerary. He gave us several maps and sent us on our way as most everything was in tram or walking distance. He also warned us about potential scams and made sure that we had his information handy so that he could intervene if necessary. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace and the breakfast staff went above and beyond helping with the kids each morning. They even took turns leading them through the buffet line if our hands were full. The view was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed looking over the city every morning. Perhaps the most memorable moment from our stay was the surprise birthday cake they had waiting for my daughter when we returned after a day of sightseeing. Her eighth birthday just happened to fall during our trip and they went out of their way to have an amazing cake made and presented to her. She STILL talks about that cake and "her friends" who gave it to her. Finally, when we were making arrangements to depart, Fatih (the owner) offered us a free shuttle service to the airport. This was unexpected but much appreciated. We would gladly stay again and can't say enough positive things about the entire staff from Fatih and Gokhan to the wait staff and desk clerks.

We visited Istanbul with friends in dec'12. We just simply loved this boutique hotel. The staff was excellent, so much at our service.the rooms were very clean and well laid out though a little small. Breakfast had a very good spread. Service was very personalized and the owner took the effort to provide information we required.i would highly recommend this place both for it's hospitality and location. We were in close proximity to all important places. The choice of hotel was excellent in all aspects.
