A charming hotel right in the heart of the Old City. Super friendly staff and extremely helpful. Complimentary snacks and wine from 5 to 11 pm. 5th floor breakfast terrace has stunning views on the Blue Mosque and the sea. Convenience store right next door. Free internet. Great value!

Perfect location, lovely views from the breakfast terrace of the Blue Mosque and the sea. We particularly enjoyed the wine and meze in the early evening, in the courtyard garden. Staff were polite, efficient and friendly, and were happy to provide tea and coffee at any time. Great experience, we will definitely use the hotel again.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for the superior rooms, very spacious

The location is perfect. Just 5 min walking distance to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. All services provided by staff were exceptional. The owner responded promptly via email on any queries. It is highly recommended for a family with kids. High value for money.

WAY LATE in our review; visited in late October 2012. Perfect airport pickup. I requested a happy birthday greeting for my husband on arrival, and instead we were welcomed with a beautiful chocolate birthday cake--indicative of how well Fatih and his team will take care of you. We began and ended our trip in Istanbul, where we found the Best Point breakfast far superior in quality and quantity to any others. Best Point graciously allowed us to leave a few of our bags with em while we travelled about. Fatih even helped us arrange travel to and through some more remote areas. The Best Point team, from family members, to the charming breakfast staff, to bellmen and even the cleaning people, made us feel welcome and extremely well taken care of.

Our large room on the first floor was quite dark with appointments not particularly suited to our taste, but a little mini fridge, sufficient storage, a large tub and the immaculate floors (we dropped something behind a dresser--spotless) made for a great place to stay. We really enjoyed the evening wine and noshes which allowed us to meet other guests.

Great location. You will enjoy your visit.

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Best Point Hotel and had a wonderful time. Firstly, I must start with the negative points of which there very few. We actually booked our stay at the Best Point Suites,not the hotel, but on arrival we were told the "heating didn't work in our room". Now, I'm not 100% sure this was the truth but apparently we had been given an upgrade. I would've liked to have been able to compare as we booked the suites for a particular reason and am a little disappointed we didn't get to stay there.
Anyway, regardless of that, our room was lovely and extremely spacious. The only downside is that it faced a road which could be a bit noisy at night,thankfully I always pack earplugs!! We also had a hammam but didn't' seem to be able to get it working but to be honest we were out and about so much we didn't mind too much. There was also plenty of toiletries in the bathrooms if you happened to forget anything,even a dental kit! We also received free turkish delight on arrival in the room and always had plenty of complimentary water.
As most other reviewers mention, there is also complimentary snacks and drinks,including wine, in the evening which is great as 3 nights out of 4 we only had to pay for one meal out! There is also a large selection of food at breakfast and they give you a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice and offer you free eggs too. I possibly would've preferred more choice of cereal but that's just personal preference.
The location is also perfect as you are close to all the main sights and within walking distance or a tram ride (very cheap!) to most others.There is also an overwhelming selection of restaurants to choose from,you could eat every day and night for a year and not cover them all and there is also a local shop right next door for any other bits you should need.
Finally,the staff were lovely, always friendly and there to help you and spoke very good English. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!
