“Great place at Sultanahmet”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

This is really charming place, very well situated, close to main tourist places. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We were upgreated for free. Breakfast was also fine, served at picturesque terrace on the roof. So I can suggest this place and you'll like it))

We spent six nights at the Ferman. Great location in the Old town (Sultanamet) near major attractions including Blue Mosque, Haggia Sophia and Archeology Museum. Tons of restaurants. Staff bent over backwards to accommodate, especially Sinan at the reception desk. Spacious room, comfy king size bed, updated bathroom. Fantastic view of the Blue Mosque and Marmara Sea from the breakfast terrace. Talking from the small lobby travels up but overall, no trouble sleeping. Would have liked brighter lighting in the room, but that's a minor issue.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room above the first level. Higher the better.

We spend 3 nights and a very great time in the hotel. Indeed the room was very clean and got a lot of space. Wifi works well. Staff was very helpfull and friendly! The rooftop is amazing you've got a view on the wonderful blue mosque! A very great pleasure to have your breakfast in front of her!! on the other side you can enjoy the view on the bosphore. Breakfast is not so bad, it's a buffet with choice : Turkish dishes and European. It's correct but I've already done better. Moreover the hotel is located on a very great area closed to tourist thing : 5 minutes by walk from the Blue mosquee and Saint Sophie Church and 7 minutes from the tram station Sultanamet to go everywhere you want! There are a lot of restaurants around the hotel. I recommend this hotel !!

Room Tip: Prefer the room on 2nd and 3th floor !

My stay at this hotel was brilliant, the hotel itself is good which I would recommend to others. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the views of the major near sites were exquisite such as the Blue Mosque. Also, the main attractions are near the hotel which is useful. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming especially the guy at the reception called Yusuf. He was always helpful and kind a very polite person, and his knowledge about Istanbul was superb as he could recommend the main sites to visit, a great person to be on reception. Overall this trip was brilliant and I would definitely recommend to others.

This hotel is conveniently located near major attractions in an old neighborhood. It features updated rooms and amenities. The staff is incredibly friendly, especially the front desk. And the complimentary breakfast is very good.

Just got back to the UK after spending a week in Istanbul. The Ferman hotel is absolutely fantastic. Located less than 2-3 minutes walk from Hagia Sofia and the Blue mosque and the nearest metro stop only 5 minutes away make this hotel ideal. The staff were fantastic and always eager to give advice to whatever questions I had regarding Istanbul. They also arranged a day trip to Gallipoli which was brilliant at a very affordable price. The room I stayed in was great, very spacious with satellite TV and great facilities. Anyone thinking of visiting Istanbul should stay in this hotel, it really is the complete package for location, customer service and the quality of room provided.
