Reviewed March 12, 2013

I fully endorse Charlie118London's enthusiasm for this fine hotel. The location is unbelievably convenient for visiting the sites of Sultanahmet (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi, etc). The staff was unfailingly friendly and accommodating. Everything was spotlessly clean with top-notch, modern appointments. The bed was large and very comfortable. The only small problem I found was low lighting over the desk, which made it hard to type at might; but when I mentioned this to the desk clerk, he immediately offered a lamp which solved the problem.

Note: This hotel is new and not well recognized by cab drivers. Just ask for the Four Seasons Hotel, which everyone knows. Biz Cevahir is at the corner of the same block.

Room Tip: The Superior Single room is not palatial in terms of size, but offered great value for the price.

We stayed here for 2 nights, our flight was delayed and we arrived late on the Friday, nothing was too much trouble for the charming receptionist. Our room on the third floor had a terrace which although overlooked would be lovely in warmer weather, the room was very clean, and kept clean each day, with a modern feel, the walk in shower was enormous, the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was simple but fresh with nice touches eg little pots of personalised jam. Reception staff in the day made excellent recommendations from a literally across the street cafe serving excellent Turkish food to a hip restaurant/ cocktail bar ' 360' further away. Location could not have been better to walk to all the Sultanahmet sights. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, we will definitely return

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with a friend. We picked this hotel based on all the good reviews on Tripadvisor and the rating was right on.

We stayed in a room on the top floor with two comfortable twin beds. The room is clean and of a decent size. Not terribly big but still have sufficient space for us to move around. There is a big flat screen TV in the room, not that we used it. There is also a little desk next to the TV. The wardrobe cabinet isn’t very big. I imagine it would be difficult to fit two medium size suitcases in there. For us it wasn’t a problem since both of us travel light. There are plenty of hangers for you to hang up your coats, etc. There is a light inside that turns on when you open the doors which is convenient, since the room lights are not necessary bright enough to illuminate the entire wardrobe. Next to this is another cabinet with shelves for you to store whatever you want. At the bottom is a room safe. Although the window in the room doesn’t offer a view, you can open it to get fresh air. We noticed that the room across from us have an excellent view of the Golden Horn (I could be wrong, it may be the Bosphorus or another body of water).

The bathroom is nice and again clean and of a decent size. The toilet is one of those automatic sensor-types, which is a first for me in a hotel room. I have to admit there was a lot of accidental flushing of the toilet when I moved around in front of the sink. There is a hairdryer in the bathroom. And one of the electrical outlets in the bathroom looks like a standard North America outlet. It was even labeled as 120V. (We didn’t try it). The outlet next to it is the standard European type, labeled as 230V. And for whatever reason, there is also a phone in the bathroom next to the door, in addition to the one in the room. The shower is quite big, about the size of a standard bathtub. However there is no door. There is a glass divider between the toilet and the shower that only covers half of the shower area. At first I thought there would be a lot of water splashing into the rest of the bathroom, but I was glad to be wrong about this. They have the standard toiletry (handsoap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion). They also have toothbrush, toothpaste, cotton tips, and a few other items. They also have bathrobes and indoor slippers.

This is one of those rooms that you have to insert your room cardkey to turn on the lights. Apparently that is also the case with the outlets in the room. A few times we plugged our electronic devices in to recharge while we went out only to find that nothing charges when we got back. Also they have an electronic “do not disturb” or “please clean room” sign that is also linked to this system and only work when your cardkey is inserted inside the room.
The free WiFi in the room was fast. They also have a free breakfast in the room below the lobby. Like the rest of the hotel, this room is also very nice. The breakfast selection is decent. We are not big breakfast eaters so it was more than enough.

The hotel is located on a small side street right next to the Blue Mosque (a short 2 blocks away). We can’t find the names of these small streets anywhere so we used landmarks to initially find this hotel. It’s near the Four Seasons Hotel. It’s an easy walk to many of the attractions, including the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Binbirdirek Cistern, etc. There is a tram station about 4 or less blocks away so it’s easy to get from and to Ataturk airport via the Metro and tram.

The staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, is very nice and helpful. So overall, I highly recommend this hotel, especially if it’s your first time in Istanbul and you are only staying for a short time (like us).

I enjoyed every part of the Biz Cevahir! It is cozy, close, yet away from the business of the city. An excellent staff and a great breakfast! The standard double rooms are a bit small but I really enjoyed the room despite its size. Loved every bit of it.

Enjoyed every minutes of our stay at this lovely hotel...it's a boutique hotel so they pay attention to little things that make a huge difference...The staff were very friendly and guided us around to get the best out of Istanbul..rooms are exceptionally clean, bed very comfy and the general atmosphere of the place is simply great !

Close proximity to the touristic sites (blue mosque, hagia sophia, topkapi palace)..Sultanahmet area itself is a great starting point if it's your first time in Istanbul...

Great hotel !!

This is a recently opened hotel right around the corner from the Four Seasons at Sultanamet. For a first time visitor to Istanbul, I would highly recommend this hotel as it is close to all the attractions and overdelivers for the price you pay. The rooms are clean and new, the staff are wonderful, the breakfast is included in your rate. I really can't fault my experience. I'm so impressed.

Hotel location is amazing. Quite comfortable and clean rooms, the usual decent breakfast. Were very pleased with our choice to stop for 4 days in January.
Next to the hotel is a great place "The Meat House", where you can take pretty budget and very tasty meal. This place is not for those who like inspirational restaurants, but this is a great cafe with excellent service and the manager.
