“Great for families too”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We spent four nights at the Best Point Hotel with our two children in the deluxe double room with hammam. It was a fantastic vacation and after touring all of the sites in the historic old town it was a joy to return to the hotel. The Best Point is so close to all of the major attractions that it is easy to walk everywhere, even with a seven and four year old in tow.

Fatih and his staff are amazing, and they take great care to make sure the guests are comfortable and happy. We really liked all the attention given to our daughter, and our son loved getting hot chocolate delivered up to the room. We were well taken care of and when we return to Istanbul I can't imagine staying anywhere other than at the Best Point.

Room Tip: If you're traveling with children I recommend the deluxe double room which has a pullout sofa sl...

Ideally positioned to visit the Old City, 5 minutes walking from Aya Sophia an the Blue Mosque, very friendly staff, keen to help and not pushy to go where they may suggest. Quiet and well mantained. Would go back anytime visiting Istanbul for fun.

We spent 4 nights at the Best Point Hotel in Istanbul and Fatih and his friendly staff made it a very pleasant experience. The room was very clean and comfortable and the hotel is walking distance to all tourist sites. The breakfast also was excellent, many options to choose from. They also offer free drinks and snacks throughout the day. The terrace is very nice, with views of the Blue Mosque and Sea.

Fatih had lots of great information and made the stay very nice. After exploring Turkey and coming back to Instanbul before flying back to NYC we spent 1 final night here and Fatih upgraded us to a very nice room. If you can afford it, I would suggest paying the extra few bucks for this. It was a very luxurious room, with hot tub and king size bed.

Thanks for everything Best Point!

I was VERY fortunate to travel to Istanbul with my adult daughter and I do believe this is the best service I have ever had at a hotel. Fatih and his staff make sure that your every need is met. They arranged pickup from the airport and had tea and sweets waiting for us, there are snacks for you every day and the breakfast is delicious. When we wanted to take a trip to Cappadocia Fatih made all the arrangements for us at a very competitive price. They are very knowledgeable and can advise you on where to go and what to do and if you want will make all the arrangements. We really enjoyed the sense of humour of Umit and the friendliness of all the staff made it such a comfortable atmosphere. The location is perfect, you are a two minute walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, there are several shops to entice you and several great restaurants to choose from. You can pretty much walk anywhere you want, Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, and if you are not able to walk the tram system is close by. MOST IMPORTANT WE FELT SAFE!

Room Tip: For a treat ask for room ?203 it has the newly renovated traditional Hamam and is so nice.

The location is great and the level of personal attention at Best-Point is second to none.
Cornucopia of breakfast-buffet and many other personal attentions of the staff (at all levels!) + cleanliness go a long way.
Walking distance & proximity of major sites such as Topkapi, St Sophie, the Blue Mosque, the Constantine Column, the Grand Bazaar and many others (eg.sea-front), make the Best-Point a "come-back-to-place".
Owner & manager, Fatih Yirildim has built a great staff and hotel making the Best-Point Hotel with its prime location a premium choice for a clean, helpful, friendly and fun stay in Istanbul

Room Tip: if you can't stand street-noise, request a room on the courtyard --but do notice that you cannot...

We spent four nights at this hotel and had a great stay!
Arriving late at night we had a warm welcome with Baclava and Turkish tea.
The manager and the staff do everything to help you feel at home immediately.
We rarely experienced such a sense of hospitality.
From the second night we were upgraded for the rest of the stay and had a nice little room with a small terrace. Everything was very clean and the bathroom equipment as well as the bed are of good quality. We enjoied the big variety of Turkish specialties prepared for breakfast by the cook of the hotel.
The situation is one of the best you could have in Sultanahmet. The main touristic sites, tons of restaurants and shops ar just a few minutes away.
We were staying in the backside building at the basement. We found that in the later morning hours it was a bit noisy. This is the only suboptimal point that we felt.
Otherwise we can only recommend this hotel.
