“Lovely stay in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

This was our last stop on a trip to Greece and Turkey, and it was definitely the best place we stayed--the perfect end to our trip. The hotel is charming, the rooms are on the small side (as is to be expected from a boutique hotel in the middle of a city) but were comfortable and clean. Mehmet and Serkan at the front desk were incredibly nice, friendly, and helpful with recommendations, transportation questions, etc. I can't say enough about their wonderful service.

Breakfast is delicious and has a beautiful view over the Bosphorus. The location is great--an easy walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to Istanbul.

Situation is good, few minutes walking to most important places and to tramway.
Nice rooms, friendly atmosphere, wonderful breakfast. Hotel offered moderate price taxi transportation from airport to hotel.

Wonderful sea view from breakfast terrace to Marmara Sea.

You can hear railway sound, but it did not disturb us.

Street surroundings are that of old Istanbul. Good restaurants very near.

For ordinary people, who want to see Istanbul.

Location – brilliant, close to all the main sights, perhaps a 5-10 min walk to the blue mosque
Rooms – well appointed, very clean
Beds – too narrow (2’ 6”), too low, very uncomfortable
Breakfast – a selection of cheeses, eggs, beef salami, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, some cooked foods (but cold), fresh bread, fruit, cereals – all OK but not very inspired and no change each day, nothing hot offered
Beautiful views across the Bosphoros and the Blue Mosque illuminated at night
Staff – all wonderful, helpful and friendly. Mehmet (daytime), Surkan (evening) and Mehmet (night). They helped with maps, directions, keys places to visit and things to do, booked a day tour and the hamam
Disappointing that no mention was made of the airport shuttle service which they could have booked at less than half the price of the taxi for our return trip to the airport

Room Tip: we stayed in room 106, the floor under the rooftop dining room

Very nice small hotel.
Convenient position to visit the city center (10 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque).
Tram stop within easy reach.
Room was spacious and very clean, with a small sitting area.
Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Bosphorus.
Special thanks to Mehmet, very kind and helpful in providing any information.

A really friendly family hostel. Very good location. Awesome Terrance for breakfast. Hotel staff are really nice and patient to explain everything you want to know about Istanbul. They also offer very good rate for money exchange. Much better than local bank, airport and street change offices.

We spent 3 nights at the Berce Hotel when first arrived in Istanbul. We were very pleased with the central location and the clean, comfortable room we had. The roof top terrace is great for breakfast and is accessible for an afternoon cup of tea or a glass of wine in the evening.
We had a room on the main floor so we caught a bit of noise from incoming guests but overall it was not bad. The train is nearby but it didn't disturb us.
The staff are very friendly and very helpful, almost protective. There are several good restaurants in the immediate neighbourhood.
We were very pleased with the Berce and recommend it if you are planning to stay in Sultanahmet.

Room Tip: We suspect rooms above the ground floor are quieter.
