“Wonderful Hotel”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

This was our first experience in Istanbul. The Hotel staff made it easy and enjoyable for us. We were pick up at the airport, welcomed by a very friendly staff with welcome drinks, Turkish delights, and gave us the little Turkish "Evil Eye". The room is small, but clean and nice. The breakfast is good, but the staff are great. They made us feel at home. They have a wonderful view from their breakfast room, which is on their rooftop. The location is the best. It is only a block away from the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sophia. You can find anything within walk distance from the hotel. At the check out, they gave us a box of Turkish delight to bring home, and took us to the airport. We will definitely come back staying in this hotel when we go back to Istanbul.

We were offered a free shuttle bus from the airport, were welcomed with a fresh orange juice and a nice chat about the city, had a nice and clean room. All the staff was very kind and helped with any question. The location is great, the breakfast fine. At check out we received a little gift and a drink. This is, what I call a place where you can stay and feel yourself special but still at home. I can only recommend this to everyone.

Recently we travelled to Istanbul for the first time and were treated with amazing service and hospitality at this centrally located hotel. The rooms are spotless and the staff are amazing! Always on hand to help with any query that we had. The rooftop terrace offers wonderful views of Istanbul while you enjoy a tasty breakfast buffet. We stayed four nights and then after a visit down to Cappadocia, we returned to the White House Hotel for one extra night. The hotel upgraded us to a Superior Room complete with scattered rose petals, tealights and wine!! It was a wonderful surprise. We cannot rate this hotel and its staff more highly!

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower floor are nice Larger rooms are on the fourth floor

We could not have chosen a better hotel for our stay in Itanbul's old city. The location is central, the accomodations really fine, clean and perfect. The breakfasts very good. But what made our stay superlative was the hotel staff. Everyone went out of their way with many kind gestures. Hava was delightful, and we sent special thanks to the youth referred to as "my friend can help," who got our Internet up and running and reset the fuse when we blew it. A perfect, warm and wonderful stay

This hotel is in a very good location, close to lots of attractions. There was plenty of places to eat and drink around the hotel too. The staff are very helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for them. The hotel is very clean and comfortable.
I would definitely return.

I’ve been to Istanbul about 6 or 7 times over the past 4 years, on business, staying at small boutique hotels as well as much more expensive business hotels , like the Swissotel Bosphorus. While I have had excellent experiences in all of the hotels where I’ve stayed, The White House Hotel beats them all. It is simply a few notches above, without breaking a sweat.
1) Spotlessly clean and very well maintained. I start with this because it is the A-B-C of any hotel stay. The property is quite new, which helps, but you can easily tell that the staff is highly oriented towards maintain the level of cleanliness, boarding on neurosis (which was a perfect fit for me personally); 2) Location – this has been repeated by almost every review and for good reason. The hotel is simply right in the heart of where you need to be as a visitor to this wonderful city, maintain just the right distance from the main thoroughfare to allow for a restful night. 3) Service – with the exception of chewing your food or dressing you for a night out, these guys will do it all for you. It’s quite remarkable. 4) Price – given all of the above, this is an absolute steal of a value. 5) The rooftop terrace – It is true that I have seen better views of the city at other Istanbul hotels. However, the terrace here is perfect for kicking back a few beers and/or getting some work done on your laptop. I will definitely return to this hotel the next time I’m in town on business, and would highly recommend it to anyone, whether traveling alone or with family.
