After reviewing many hotels on your site we chose The White House and it lived up to all expectations. The location is excellent, close to all main attractions. The hotel is bright, very clean and comfortable. The Reception Staff, friendly, efficient and very helpful. Everything was within walking distance including many good restaurants. Staying here made our stay in Istanbul very memorable and I highly recommend this hotel.

I selected the hotel based on trip advisors recommendation. Many features of the hotel are excellent, location is perfect near all the key attractions in Sultanamet, the service and staff are great, the complimentary shuttle to and from the airport was a great service. The only down side was in terms of value for money, the rooms are too small.

I selected this hotel pretty much based in Trip advisor reviews - and was not let down. Unassuming from the outside, you steo inside to a beautifully decorated gem of tranquility!! The staff were polite, very friendly and very helpful. We were welcomed with a snack in the lobby and our room had a hand written letter from the owner thanking us for staying there. The rooms are a good size but the shower was one of the best I have ever encountered, high praise from an old travel dog!! Breakfast is served on a roof top balcony looking out over the old city and the location is perfect for short walks to the major sites of Istanbul. Highly recommend this hotel!!

This hotel was a delight to stay at. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were made to feel very welcome and the hotel was in a wonderful walking location to the old sites of interest. We found it comfortable and very clean. I will recommend this to anyone traveling to Istanbul. And we would definately stay here if we return someday to Istanbul.

Room Tip: Standard room is small compared to North American standards, but suite is very spacious. Small room...

We only stayed for two nights at the White House, and loved it. The location is hard to beat, being on a relatively low key street but only a couple of minutes on foot from Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The Hotel looks nice but unassuming outside, and then you step into the 18th century décor inside. Rococo here we come. The theme carries to the rooms -- and we had two. The rooms are comfortable and the shower was one of the better ones of all time in the eye of a seasoned traveler. The hotel is clean, well maintained. Breakfast on the roof top with views of the usual attractions is great. The staff is extremely friendly and they'll go out of their was to please the traveler (like sending a staff member to purchase a marker when we asked for one) -- truly outstanding.

Room Tip: They'll gladly show you all available rooms in this small hotel, so you can chose the one best s...
