We are often sad to leave places but it is more unusual to be sad to leave a hotel. We were truly sad to leave Osmanhan Hotel. As other reviewers have said, it is a very special hotel. It is in a brilliant location, with main sights and restaurants, cafes and shops very close by, but in a quiet side street. The street and the hotel's old building have real character. The rooms are comfortable and kept beautifully clean, as are all areas of the hotel. Delicious and beautifully presented breakfasts are taken on the roof, either in the glassed-in area or outside on the lovely terrace. This is such a pleasure. There is a higher roof terrace too, also with views of the Bosphorus and the minarets of the Blue Mosque, where we were welcomed to take our own drink and snacks, which was delightful in the evening. One of the most unforgettable things was sitting with the view of the illuminated minarets and listening to the call to prayer. The most unforgettable thing about Osmanhan Hotel though is the fantastic welcome and warm hospitality from everyone there. As others have said, they really could not do any more for you and are so nice and friendly always. Every single person at the hotel was totally charming and helpful throughout, and I'm only not naming people because I don't want to miss anybody out. The smiling friendliness is what made us most wish we did not have to leave. Osmanhan Hotel is a fantastic choice for anyone who likes small, unique and charming hotels. If you have mobility issues you should read the hotel information and be aware that it is not possible to have a lift in a building such as this. For us it was not an issue and we loved everything about the hotel. We definitely hope to return to Istanbul and we would not think of staying anywhere else.
