My friend and I found Esans hotel on tripadvisor and it lived up to and exceeded our expectations! The location near the three main historical and religious sites was perfect. It was also near the tram line which made accessing the rest of the city very easy. They upgraded us to a larger room with two single beds when they saw we were two girls traveling together and had a very nice spread for breakfast waiting for us each morning. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and on call 24/7! I would stay here again and tell all friends to stay here also. Slight warning: there is no elevator so if you have trouble with stairs ask to stay on floor 1 (which is still a flight up).

We stayed at the Esans Hotel for 3 days at the beginning of July. Everything about our stay was perfect. The staff made everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and pleasant: from arranging our transfer from the airport and back to provide us with information about the local museums, historical sites and places to eat. The room has a traditional look witch is very nice and is equipped with all modern amenities including TV, phone and safe. The bathroom is large and everything is very clean. The hospitality of the staff was exceptional and they even gave us gifts for good luck when we checked out.

While a small hotel - the Esans Hotel in Istanbul is a property big on service. First, it's location is perfect for visiting the old city and historical sites. The staff could not do enough for us starting with the on time no hassle pickup at the cruise port. That followed with having our room ready early and arranging a Bosphorus sightseeing cruise. The staff assisted with phone calls back to the states and even made sure they had breakfast for us at 3:30AM in order for us to make a 6:00AM flight.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We really enjoyed our stay for 4 days in May. A great family run b&b nothing was too much trouble and were happy to share information and offer advice at anŷ time.
The location is very good just a few steps away from lots of restaurants and bars and not far away from the many exciting Istanbul sights, which are all walkable.
Would recommend this b&b to stay to taste what Istanbul has to offer.

Esans is conviniently close to main turist attractions in the Old Town and restaurants. The service was nice. Eager to help young men made my husband and I feel taken care of. The rooms are all nice and clean. The view though, if it's important for you, can be a problem. Only last floor has nice view. Otherwise you can enjoy it from terrasse with a cup of complimentary coffee or tea. For breakfast you can try some local specialties. It is rather diverse with cereal, fruits, eggs and cheese but also hummus, tapenade Turkish style and olives. The shuttle from the airport was a plus. You pay for it but avoid taking taxi. And taking taxi in Istanbul is not recommended. Overall nice place I woud recommend.

Room Tip: Last floor has a nice view

This hotel was highly recommended to me by a group of friends and i intend on doing the same. This family run hotel is so lovely and comfortable and i can not really fault it. There are a lot of reviews that complain about the 5am prayers but thats part of staying in Istanbul and did not bother me one bit. The hotel itself was very lovely and clean. The rooms were so very homely and comfortable and the staff were very hospitable and tended to your every needs. The photos on trip-advisor are accurate. The staff are only too willing to help and are really very lovely. The location is amazing, 3 minutes walk to tourist area but the hotel does not encounter any of the noise you might expect. Again, there is really nothing can fault with this hotel and i would recommend it to anyone. Its slightly more expensive than over hotels but the quality makes up for this without a doubt. Definitely stay at Esans hotel.

Great location, just off the main drag so less people traffic. The décor and rooms are very quaint, but have all the modern facilities one needs. We made use of the roof top on two evenings, (with a little local wine purchased for the mini mart/tekal) and one night there was a fireworks display - just for us! The young gentlemen who staff the hotel are exceptional, friendly and ever so helpful - a credit to the establishment. The breakfast was terrific, plenty of choice and it varied with some different items each day, well done to the chef lady. There are plenty of restaurants just nearby. (varying standards) and all the top sights to see in Istanbul so close. My only disappointment was that the beds were way too firm for comfort, gave me aches and sore back. Otherwise a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Higher floors might be tricky for those with difficulty with stars, but we were on first floor.
