“Excellent hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

My 2 friends and I arrived in Istanbul, wide-eyed and excited (it was our first stop on our European tour). We had arranged pick-up from the airport with the Best Point beforehand, which was very easy and cost no more than a taxi. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and told that because our room was not ready, we were able to enjoy breakfast on their rooftop and then go wandering around whilst we were waiting. The views from the roof were phenomenal; one of the highlights of the entire trip was sitting up on that roof, eating from a huge array of fresh fruits, pastries, yoghurt, breads, cereals and coffee, watching the ships in the Bosporus. Certainly a beautiful way to begin the morning! The room was clean, comfortable, well decorated and large (we had a triple), with a stylish new bathroom. The Wi-Fi was very good. And the location...it is situated a few hundred metres from Aya Sofya and the Blue Mosque. It couldn't be more convenient for exploring Sultanahmet. All of the service staff were wonderfully polite and helpful. Overall I couldn't fault this hotel (my friends were woken up by the prayer singers - I didn't notice!) - we had an extraordinary time in Istanbul and that was largely because of this wonderful place. Don't miss it!

Fatih really cares about his hotel and his guests. He and the rest of his staff are superb, and really made us feel at home. We spent 5 nightsi n Istanbul in December, then went to other towns and came back to stay there for three more nights before flying home. Best Point upgraded our room automatically, without our asking, both times and even gave us an extra ride to the airport. The rooms are very comfortable, and the location is perfect, just a short walk to Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, or Hagia Sofia. The breakfast was a generous spread, and the mezzes and anytime tea were nice treats after a day of touring.

But what makes this place special is the staff. The moment we arrived, Mustafa sat us down, gave us tea and baklava, and asked us what we wanted to see in Istanbul. He then worked out our entire itinerary for us. That is just one example of the great atmosphere and service here. The fact that I remember the names of most of the staff six months after our tip tells you how wonderful this place is.

My friend and me with our spouses visited Istanbul and stayed in Best Point Hotel according to our friends advise. We spent unforgettable 4 days, which covered amazing siteseengs, shopping and Mark knopfler's concert. However, we were impressed the most with hospitality, warmth and amazing service which were given us in Best Point Hotel under leadrship of Fatih.
We would willingly recommend Best Point Hotel to everyone.
We would like to thank Fatih and his brilliant staff for their hospitality and professionalizm again.
We hope we see you again.

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.
