“Friendly boutique hotel in great location”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I've stayed at the House Hotel twice in the last month as I've been to Istanbul on business.
It feels more like staying in the home of a very stylish friend than in a hotel. The rooms are beautiful, with nespresso coffee machines and free mineral water. And, an incredibly nice touch (if you're a chocolate lover) is that a box of chocolates is waiting for you in your room - a welcome gift from the hotel.
The bathroom, which has a fabulous shower, is all mirrors except for the marble floor and sink (the bathroom products, made especially for the hotel, are great). The mirrors can be a bit confusing initially, but you soon get over it.
Breakfast is delicious
The lighting is subdued, the bed enormous and all in all its very conducive for a romantic stay. I was there on business and needed to work in the evenings - there is a good sized desk, but there's not really enough lighting around that area, so working at my laptop was quite hard on the eyes. But The House Hotel Nistantasi, and the surrounding areas, have too many distractions for anyone to spend too much time working!

Stayed with my family at the House hotel at both locations; Nisantashi and Galata and we visited the one at Bhosphorus for coffee as well.

While we cannot give a proper review for the property at Bhosporus (as we did not spend the night), we believe that the House at Nisantashi is the best among the three.

The reasons being: 1. perfect location right at the center of the city's upmarket shopping street, yet not too far from the old city (at least by cab), so a perfect balance. 2. the rooms are spacious, well designed and maintained. 3. the staff, especially the stylish and helpful Kevin is icing on the cake.

Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul!

Room Tip: For us, our room at the lobby level is perfect. Easy access, just next to the business center, coffe...

Very nice to read our croissants are as good as the ones in Paris. Our breakfast buffet offers a great selection of international and Turkish fresh products sourced by our Executive Chef
The location of our hotel Abdi İpekçi Caddeesi is a mix of the Champs Elysees and Madison Avenue together, smaller but very upscale and “seen to be seen”.

We hope to see you again and welcome you back to The House Hotel Nişantası

I stayed in the house hotel nisantasi for the first time last month, and I couldn't be more excited to share my experience. Clean? Check. Friendly? Check. 5 star service? Check. Luxurious? Check. Area? Check. Price/quality match? CHECK. We had the best time ever. Need I say more? I will. The manager's name is Kevin and he catered to our every need, so friendly, so helpful, I could go on for hours. The area completely suits the hotel and is so accessible, we are satisfied to the tee and will definitely be back for more.

The House Hotel Nisantasi truly is one of the reasons I return to Istanbul every single time. From when it first opened, this hotel has been my go-to place. It's luxurious, modern, welcoming and homy feel ticks all my boxes and the staff could not be more polite, friendly and genuinely concerned with your wants and needs at all times. The fact that I run into several returning guests every time shows how it's dedication and loyalty towards guests is something they receive in return. One of the things that stood out to me during my stay last month was that the reception desk moved from the lobby to the ground floor, making guests' stay even more comfortable and private. I've stayed in the hotel by myself, with my fiance and on girl trips and have been provided with the most suitable and up-to-date information on where to go and what to see each time. Overall, I would recommend staying here for many reasons, the main one being a guaranteed unforgettable time in magical surroundings.

This hotel was my best experience in Istanbul. it is really hard to describe how beautiful and stylish this hotel really is; every single detail was well designed and thought with an extreme attention to detail.

I had moved to the House hotel due to an extremely negative experience in another hotel in Sultanamhet; luckily they had availability and i found this gem in Istanbul.

I totally understand the need to stay in the tourist area if you are in Istanbul for a short visit, but it is definitely refreshing to get out of there and move to an upscale and calm neighborhood such as Nisantasi.

Loved every single moment of it.

The manager was fantastic; recommended us great restaurants a few blocks from the hotel without making sure to call and reserve us a table like other hotels do (worry about getting their commission...).

He just recommended a few different places and explained more or less how to get there. We went for a walk, looked at the options, picked one of them and had a great meal.

i felt like home during my stay and i can't wait to go back to Istanbul and spend more time there. This hotel had managed to be perfect, on every sense of the words. The staff, the rooms, the lobby area with their beautiful library.

The only problem when you stay there is the fact that you don't want to leave...good job House Hotel; my compliments to whoever designed the hotel, created the entire concept and above all hired the staff that manage to compliment and turn this place into a perfect place to stay while in Istanbul.

Room Tip: We had a standard room and loved it - i looked at other rooms and they all seem to be just as nice
