The owners of this small (22 rooms I think) hotel, know exactly what they are doing. Look after your guests and make the visit special. Nothing was too much of a problem for the staff at this place. Advice on where to eat, printing off plane tickets, directions, all given with a smile. We'd booked a room for 4 (double bed and 2 beds for the kids (12 and 14). There were rose petals on the bed and a small bottle for wine for my wife and I on arrival. Room was a good size as was the bathroom, good quality Wifi was included. The location was brilliant, only 3-4 minutes' walk to the main street where all the sites are. The hotel had sorts of interesting things to eat for breakfast though the Turkish coffee was the best thing and there were loads of great resturants nearby. Istanbul was amazing. We booked a half day "Imperial Tour" with the tour company ITS. This gave us all the key sights in one morning which allowed us to spend even more time exploring Istanbul. The Basilica Cistern is well worth a visit. I'd suggest getting there early as it looks as if it could get very busy. It was lovely knowing that after a hard days sightseeing we could come back to the White House, recharge and then go out for dinner. In fact we left the kids in the room one late afternoon so my wife and I could go to one of the old Hamam's (Turkish Baths). If you have time it's well worth going to see the Whirling Dervish ceremony (the real deal is a 30 minute drive out of down down). The hotel offers a free one way transfer to the airport.
