My husband and I stayed at the White House hotel for 4 nights over New Years Eve. We had an unbelievable stay and strongly recommend this hotel. After we made our reservation at the hotel through a third party website, the hotel contacted us to arrange free transportation from the airport to the hotel which was great because the hotel is about 45 minutes from the airport. Upon our arrival at the airport, a nice gentleman was waiting in the arrivals area with our name on a sign and then we were off! Upon our arrival at the hotel, we were greeted with a welcome cocktail and chatted for a few minutes with the hotel's friendly staff about our stay. We were then escorted to our double room on the third floor. The room was spotless and very nice. It came with a refrigerator and free wi fi - both nice touches.

The hotel, which is a small boutique hotel, is in a fantastic location for visiting the Old Town. The hotel is a short walk to the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, many shops and restaurants and the metro (which you can take to the Spice Bazaar, New Mosque, Taksim Square, etc). The location could not have been better. Also, our room included a daily complimentary breakfast. The breakfast was a great way to start the day and included eggs, coffee, fresh fruits, cereal, olives, sausage and various breakfast breads. I believe it is served from 7-10 a.m. everyday.

Because we were celebrating our anniversary, the hotel brought us a small cake and two cocktails on New Year's Eve to celebrate. This was a really nice gesture and is just one example of the hotel's great hospitality. The staff greeted us every morning and night like royalty and were always available to answer our questions and help us with planning our days in the city. In fact, the lobby is staffed 24-hours a day so there is always someone around to assist you. And the one day it rained, they had umbrellas waiting for us in the lobby to take with us.

This was a great home base for us and will be for you too.

Perfect location and even better hosts. We were taken care of like the "Sultans" of past from setting up a last minute trip down to Ephesus to opening up the terrace on the roof on New Years Eve because we we were to tired to get out with the crowds. So we watched the fireworks from there and even enjoyed a bottle of wine that they gave to us to enjoy. It is very nice to come back to a spotless hotel where you are greeted with a smile and a genuine question on what you saw that day. If your looking to be in the old city this is the place, an absolutely wonderfull time in a wonderfull place.

A very clean, modern, comfortable hotel in a very central location. Breakfast was excellent, and staff were most helpful, and also genuine and friendly. On one occasion even acting as an interpretor for us over the phone when we were out and in need of assistance talking to a bus company.

We stayed at the White House Hotel in late December 2010. The service is great. We stayed three days and so we got the free airport transport. Note that they will not do the free trip for the return, only for the pickup. No matter. Mr. Cafer was at the front desk nearly the entire time we were there. He answered every question quickly and expertly. We had a nice three bed room. Nice toiletries, ample warm water.
The extras were what made it special. Free Wi-Fi, umbrellas downstairs. Free breakfast. This is not a fancy hotel like a big stateside hotel, but it is charming and in a very convenient location. The staff have definite ideas about where you should go for dinner or for a bath, but were willing to answer any question we had.
Two final notes. We wanted to divide our check when we checked out. Mr. Cafer said, anyway you want to do it, and split in on credit cards. I'm not sure this would have happened in the States, but to have it done overseas was remarkable. Finally, my wife left her iphone charger in the room. She emailed Mr. Cafer and he mailed it to us. Just great service. (Final note, some of the reviews say that there is a building renovation going on next door. That is completed. There is a grocery store three minutes away, a street car stop five minutes away and the Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia area is less than a ten minute walk.

We stayed in the White House Hotel for 4 nights in late December. The location is fantastic - it really is walking distance to the main sites, restaurants/shops, yet tucked away in quiet street. The triple room was excellent - v.clean, roomy. The staff were very helpful and Mr. Harun went out of his way to provide a car and driver to take me to a meeting. Breakast is ample and the welcome drinks, parting gifts all add that extra little touch. I would definetly recommend this hotel. It made our stay in Istanbul very pleasant. Krishna.

The hotel is very cosy and has a great location – right in a heart of historical center. The staff is extremely helpful and attentive. The quality of service is one of the best I’ve ever met after visiting about 20 countries.
