“What a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

The White House hotel in Istanbul is the best. I have just returned from a fabulous holiday in TURKEY and the White House was a standout. The hotel is only small which makes it so personal and every one is so genuinely friendly and helpful. The service was better than any 6 star hotel. The welcome we received certainly set our holiday up for success. Thank you staff at White House.

We were very fortunate to find this hotel in Istanbul thanks to Trip Advisor reviews. The location is perfectly situated for sight seeing and dining. The staff is attentive and pleasant. The hotel itself is lovely, clean and very well appointed.

This was a charming and clean hotel in an excellent location. We could walk to all the sights and some wonderful restaurants. The staff was so accommodating. As it was our first time in Istanbul, we felt we could not have made a better choice.

Room Tip: Although our room was right off the lobby, which was a bit unusual, it was extremely quiet and comfo...

Small hotel, convenient location, walking distance to key tourist sights in Istanbul, including the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar. Etc. and also surrounded by lots of restaurants and bars....Hotel is clean, staff are friendly, and very helpful in providing information , or support for requests. Breakfast at the roof top terrace is delightful. They should use this roof top terrace more for evening drinks, or even snacks....Wifi works well here

Room Tip: We had a standard double room and a triple room( 2+ 1 extra bed) . The standard room is comfortable...

Boyfriend and I returned to the White House Hotel Istanbul and were completely floored by the welcome we received! We requested to stay in the same room, and not only did they set that up for us, they also surprised us with rose petals, candles, and Turkish wine in our room. They are so sweet!
Everyone was so accommodating and friendly, we loved staying here a second time. This is definitely the best place to stay. And if we are fortunate to be able to visit a third time, we know exactly where to book!
