5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great place, very friendly staff. The rooftop tarace has a wonderfull view on the blue mosque and the sea. The breakfast is great and a good start of the day.
Staff has very good suggestions, but it's also very easy to find your own way aroundin this amazing and friendly city. Have fun!

We spent one night at the Best point hotel on May 7, 2013. Since we are a family of four persons, we were assigned the two-bedroom apartment on the second floor of the building next to the hotel's main building. We were really amazed by the outstanding service we received from the hotel staff and managers. Every staff member genuinely did his best to make our stay unforgettable. The night manager (Mr. Younis) and the day manager (Mr. Fatih) were both very friendly and they provided us with all the information we asked for. The shuttle van that picked us up from the airport (for 35 Euros) was very clean and comfy. The food was excellent and very generous. It was a very nice touch when the hotel's manager offered us breakfast on the day of our arrival (in addition to the usual breakfast the nest morning). Unlike what other reviewers said, our two-bedroom apartment was large enough with very nice and simple furniture. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will definitely use it if I ever visit Istanbul again.

Good location, close to major places of interest, though definitely not the best in this district, there are hotels with sea view and more quiet at night. The staff is really good, very helpful and friendly. But the room was a big disappointment - very shabby, with so-called Turkish design (lots of plush textiles, artificial flowers). The breakfast offered the same assortment every day, mainly sweet, omelette was the only warm option. We would have changed the hotel on site but it was non-refundable. In general - not worth its price.

My wife and I just returned from a trip to Istanbul where we stayed at the Best Point Hotel for 5 days. We had an incredible experience in Istanbul, which was in no small part a result of the hospitality of everyone at the Best Point Hotel. Fatih was gracious and accommodating from our opening sips of şarap (wine) until we finally departed the hotel for the airport. Fatih and the rest of the staff were equally helpful in assisting my wife and I attempt to learn Turkish during the course of our stay. They were always very patient and willing to work with us while we tried to speak their language (with limited success). My wife also enjoyed the various snacks that were offered during the course of the day, especially the baklava. The buffet breakfast was tasty as well as plentiful. Aside from the incredible hospitality, the hotel is well located in the Old Town. One of the highlights of our trip was being less than 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, which we were able to contemplate and enjoy several times a day. The hotel is also located close to the tram line, which allows for easy access to different parts of the city. My wife and I have stayed in many hotels and cities over the years and we cannot recall being treated better than we were at the Best Point Hotel. We highly recommend not only a trip to Istanbul but a stay at the Best Point Hotel as well. Teşekkür ederim Fatih and everyone at Best Point Hotel.

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.

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!
