“Outstanding location, value and hospitality”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

You can probably see on the map that this hotel is in a great location. You can also easily see that the price makes it a good value. What is much less obvious is the great hospitality. I arrived at about 9:30 in the morning, assuming that the front desk would hold my bag for me until my room was available later. Instead, I was shown immediately to my room and offered breakfast! The walk up to the top floor breakfast area is long and narrow, and the rooftop terrace is even further...but the food is good and the view is brilliant. The rooms themselves are not luxurious, but more than comfortable. I cannot imagine that anyone will leave Istanbul regretting having stayed here!

Room Tip: The ground floor room will save you some money, but can be a bit noisy...especially when trying to t...

We wanted to stay very close to all the main Istanbul sights, and Osmanhan ticked all the boxes for us.
The pre arrival communication with Hamit was a nice personal touch. We were on an early flight into Istanbul and our luggage was stored, we had breakfast on the roof terrace ( great food) and set off with maps, and a tram card to use for our stay.
The room was small, but it was perfect for our needs, bathroom as well. Shower was good. We were on a high floor which I would recommend as there are a couple of hostels close by with some noisy revellers in the early hours...but who hasn't done that!!!
The staff were wonderful, helpful, a great way to start our Turkish holiday.
Ask for restaurant recommendations.
Thank you Osmanhan, we will be recommending you, Regards, Denise and Brian

This is the ideal hotel for couples to stay - we were two couples sharing a weekend away and this hotel couldnt have been better suited to our needs. Wonderful location, we were able to walk to everything we wanted to visit direct from the hotel. Very helpful and friendly staff who couldnt do enough for us. Comfortable and very clean. Intimate - only a handful of rooms - meant when we sat on the roof terrace for pre dinner drinks (and post dinner!) we were the only four there. The hotel has no bar but there are nearby small shops that sell essentials like wine, beer, nibbles and the hotel are happy for you to take these onto the roof terrace which helps with the budget. We will return to Istanbul and we wouldnt even consider staying anywhere else as this is just perfect.

Room Tip: We saw two bedrooms, both lovely although one on the small side. There will always be noise - this...

We can't say enough about this hotel. Don't be put off by the hotel not having an elevator. They help you with your bags (even at 3 am) up and down the stairs. It is in a wonderful location. The breakfast is good and served on a roof top area with a beautiful view of the Bosphorous. The hotel does not have a bar, but they showed us where a little store was and we bought drinks and had them in the late afternoon on the roof top. They supplied glasses and even brought us a fruit plate! Unfortunately we had to leave for the airport at 3 am in the morning. They were there to see us off and made us a "to go" breakfast to take with us. The hotel is close to the major sights. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who has difficulty in walking up stairs, because you need to go up and down the stairs to your room and the breakfast area. Besides that- it is a gem.

This hotel has very comfortable,though not large rooms but this is overshadowed by your proximity to the main tourist sites. You are about 50 m from a restaurant strip and 5 mins walk from the blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, topkapi palace and basilica cistern. Don't miss any of these.
From here much of central Istanbul is a walk or easy tram ride away. Breakfast was great on the terrace overlooking the Bosphorous and when I went up to set and see the sunset, the night duty manager even came up brought me Turkish coffee and sat down for a chat. You can't beat that Thank you

While we stayed at Osmanhan Hotel, the owner and staff always cared of us. They were always kind and smiling. Every morning they started with ‘Good morning. How are you?’, sent us to sight-seeing with ‘Have a good day. Enjoy your sight-seeing,’ and welcomed us with ‘Welcome back’ in the evening. We felt their kindness well. When we wanted to buy somethings in a supermarket, a boy working at the hotel took us to one in Sultanahmet. If he hadn't taken us there, we would be lost. We really appreciate him.It made us happy. And, of course, the clean rooms and the breakfast at the roof top viewing the sea are also noteworthy. We had a wonderful time at Osmanhan Hotel.

As we had read on Tripadvisor’s web site, Osmanhan Hotel was very close to main sight-seeing places and we can get to each place in 3-5 minutes. Whenever we wanted, we could go back to our room from Topkapi Palace, Hagiasofia, Blue Mosque and other places. So we spent our time very relaxed at this hotel as if we were at home during our 4-day staying in Istanbul.

Every corner of this hotel was clean. The staff was all well-trained and polite. We were also satisfied with the room, which was not so large, but well- furnished and convenient.

And, especially, we loved the terrace at which they were giving breakfast in buffet-style. The terrace is overlooking the sea and you can see Asian side adn Princes’ islands (and even the opposite side of Marmara Sea in a fine day.

We give Osmanhan Hotel full marks!
