“The real value for the money paid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

We were so pleased by choosing this hotel, closed by many attractions Istanbul can offers. Few minutes walking distance from tram station T1 Eminonu – Gulhane Park and spicy bazaar, 25 minutes to Taxim square passing Galata Bridge.
The hotel is small but pleasant, with a nice and welcome atmosphere, located on a pedestrian street full of restaurants. We arrived earlier but the hotel’s staff just made a room ready for us. Our goal being to visit as much as possible for a 4 days staying and not laying on the bed we booked just a standard twin beds room, this one being room 402 with a nice and small terrace. For those looking for more comfort there are different types of rooms, especially located on the 5th floor I guess.
Our room was small but welcoming, with relaxing colours. There is a mini bar, TV with different channels in different languages, individual A/C. The bathroom was very small, few toiletries and slippers were available.
Good cleaning services, the towels were daily changed.
The restaurant located on the terrace at the 6th floor offers a good variety of cold and hot dishes.
The front office personnel are very nice, professional and helpful. We’d got information about the best place to change money, were to go and out to visit, they arranged daily excursions for us with a pick-up and come back service directly from/to the hotel.
They also arrange for us a transfer from Ataturk airport- hotel- airport for a total price of 65EUR/2 persons. The fare could be negotiated; it is something specific for Turkey. We have no negotiation skills so probably we paid more than usual fare .Any way I think it is a good decision to arrange transfers through reception because the taxi drivers generally trick, choosing long ways.

Room Tip: There are comfortable rooms available on the 5th floor

As me and my wife go in Istanbul for business and travel maybe 4-5 time in year we always choose Hotel Evsen as place to stay. First off all stuff is super nice and helpful and what ever help or information you need they are your choice. What we learned in past 3 years in Istanbul not many people speak good English so it is nice when you have somebody to help you on very good English, like stuff in Evsen hotel can.
Rooms are recently renovated, they are all super comfy and we always rest good.
You should never miss breakfast in hotel Evsen. As we stayed in many hotels in Istanbul this one is one off better due to food choice.
And at the and location off hotel Evsen is best in Istanbul if you want to enjoy and see all of important sites.

We will definitely stay again in future in this hotel.

And one more time definitely would recommend this hotel to all.

My two stays at Hotel Evsen, April 28- May 1, 2014, as a solo traveler, and May 6-10 with a friend, confirm that I have found the perfect combination of everything a serious tourist would like in a hotel: a location within walking distance of major historic sights; a room that exudes comfort and relaxation; and a terrific breakfast before a serious day of touristing. The hotel staff, especially the front desk managers, were unfailingly attentive, efficient, and friendly; I felt very much "at home." My Istanbul memories will be colored by my time at the Hotel Evsen, a restorative oasis in the midst of this wondrous, but tiring, city.

What a great hotel. Location couldn't be better. After our first night we had to change our room due to noise and the staff were only too happy to help! Always a smile to greet you. Made to feel very welcome. Would we stay here again? YES!!
