I was very impressed with this small and quaint hotel. It's not far from the Blue Mosque and the scenery to get there is enjoyable. When we got there, check-in was quick, we were offered drinks, and our luggage was taken to our room. They offer light snacks and drinks in the evening (5-11pm) and there is a small area to sit with an outside courtyard. The staff are very friendly, polite, and make sure all your needs are taken care of. Breakfast is on the top floor terrace it's about 4 flights up but worth the climb. Their is a variety of food with beautiful scenery of the Blue Mosque and sea. I know it's simple but I loved the freshly squeezed orange juice! We would definitely stay again;-)

We had a wonderful experience at the Best Point hotel. Everything has been perfect. Rooms are clean and renovated, breakfast on the top floor is amazing with a spectacular view of the Blue Mosque and of the Marmara sea. Location is excellent, just a few steps away from Aya Sofia & Blu Mosque. The staff makes the difference, everybody has been helpful and friendly making us feel at home. We won't be looking for hotels in Istanbul anymore...we made our final stop at the Best Point!! Thanks to all of you and see you soon.

My husband and I have just spent 4days/3nights in Istanbul and stayed at this amazing little gem of a hotel. The staff went out of their way constantly to make sure we had everything we wanted or needed. Their ability to make you feel as if you are in your own home away from home was outstanding . We had the deluxe double room with a balcony,...what a little oasis of comfort and beauty it was.The roof terrace where breakfast is served has stunning views of the Blue Mosque on one side and the Bosphorous on the other, and as for the variety they offer for breakfast, you cannot ask for more.The hotel is perfectly situated for access to everything you would want to see or do while in Istanbul. I would recommend any body going to Istanbul to stay in this hotel, You will not be sorry at all. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The hotel has a good location, close to major tourist attractions, just in the center of old town. It was clean, well equipped. The staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was awesome, you could eat omlette, fruits, pastries, etc. Free drinks were offered all day. There is a free snack time from 5 pm when you can taste special Turkish food and can drink wine again for free. The hotel has a terrace downstairs and on 4th floor, too. The view from upper terrace is nice.

We stayed at the Best Point Suites in February of 2014 for 3 nights. Fatih was very helpful when making our arrangements. He answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with our room. We stayed in the family suite which was definitely sufficient space for 5 young friends. The room was really nice (comfortable beds, good size bathroom, good water pressure) and we slept really well.

The staff is very nice and accommodating. The complimentary wine and snacks at 5pm is really nice. The airport shuttle is seamless and very helpful. The breakfast is delicious and I would NOT skip it! You get to sit on the roof of the hotel and the staff is very helpful.

The location is perfect if you are seeing sights in the old city. We could walk to all of our sites. Lastly, the price was extremely reasonable.

I would definitely recommend Best Point to a friend!

Would certainly recommed this hotel. There re two prts of the hotel, the hotel and the suites. We stayed at the apartment suites, have to walk a bit to the min hotel where we had our breakfast with fantastic view of the Bosphorus. The hotel has nice friendly staff. After the first day after our breakfast, they asked us in a form what can they do to improve our stay experience, the kids was jokingly wrote "pancake!". The next day, pancakes appears on the breakfast table amongst many other lovely food! The hotel also provide free drinks, fruits lovely munchies at different times of the day. In our two rooms apartment, the beds were heavenly, the toilets, the beddings are changed daily and are very clean. Lovely staff, we have no complaints at all and would love to stay in the same hotel again next time we are in Istanbul. Thank you! Mr. & Mrs. Esa and family.

I can’t really fault the hotel for friendliness and service. I can’t fault it for the food or room we were given. I can’t fault it for location – excellent with a view from the rooftop breakfast room of the Blue Mosque one side and the sea the other. In fact, for all these, I would give the hotel between 8 and 10 out of 10. The airport pickup was also arranged through the hotel, which was very efficient and worthwhile when coming in on a late flight.
So what am I saying? What I’m saying is that if you feel OK staying at a 5-floor hotel without a lift, then please stay. Actually even that wasn’t really a problem as the staff hoiked the suitcases up and down the stairs.
I suppose the acid test would be to ask myself if I’d stay at Best Point again. If it is the first trip to Istanbul, I would definitely advise anyone to stay here as it’s very close to all the tourist hotspots. However after the first visit, we wanted to go further afield and to do that we had to use the ferries, on the other side of quite a steep hill.
Still, it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience with the excellent tram service in Istanbul.
