What a little gem! Booked this hotel for a four night stay after reading the Tripadvisor reviews, and was glad I had followed the advice. The welcome was warm and we were allowed an early check in and even a choice of rooms, though they were pretty solidly booked. Such a relief after a tiring early arriving flight.

As this hotel is slap-bang in the Sultanahmet area, space is of a premium, so the rooms are not huge, but they are well set out and if you make sure you get a terrace room, the comfortable outdoor setting adds a whole further living area to your room. Great for watching the ships go by on the Bosphorus and listening to the music of the city. Tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge with supplies are added bonuses. The bathrooms are very well maintained and the shower is marvellous - a welcome luxury when you come in hot and sticky after a day's sight-seeing. Free unlimited wifi keeps you in touch with the rest of the world. Lots of eateries in the area and only a couple of minutes to the Hagia Sofia and the Sultanahmet Mosque. Just a 15 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar.

The only criticism was that in our room the TV was awkwardly placed and hard to see from the bed - but, in fairness, their cable really only shows news channels, which can be depressing, so better to avoid TV altogether.

Terrific spot, terrific service.

Room Tip: Get a terrace room for extra living space.

We stayed here for four nights the end of August into September. The hotel is in a great location, it is quick walk to the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The Grand Bazaar and the Basilica Cistern are within 10 minutes and the tram is within five minutes and can get you any where cheaply. You are near everything at this hotel.

The breakfast was nice, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hotel is quiet and it is easy to sleep. The staff is friendly and accommodating, they make reservations, give directions, offer suggestions when you ask. We had a superior room with no balcony. The room was standard size. We were on the third floor which was nice, and could kind of see the water, but you had to lean to do so. It would have been nice to have a balcony with a view, but they were booked when we made reservations and our room did have a decent view since we were on the third floor. There are plenty of rooftops nearby that you can visit to see the view.

We really enjoyed Biz Cevahir and would stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor will have a better view

We stayed in this Hotel for 5 nights. It is marvellously located in Sultanamet whislt still being quiet. You can walk to all the main sites from here and there is easy access to the tram to go further afield. The staff were delightful and could not have been more friendly and helpful. The rooms were excellent. I would highly recommend this Hotel. Helen W

We recently spent 3 nights at Biz Cevahir. It was a great stay. The hotel is well located 2 minutes from Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque, 10 minutes from the Grand Bazaar and 4 minutes from the tram. Breakfast was excellent, as was the service. My husband got an ear infection and the staff was very helpful in arranging medical care. The rooms were quiet and well-kept.

We stayed in this hotel last week and everything was perfect, good location and excellent service. We fully recommend this hotel but not the tours with Senkron agency because are expensive and terrible, so if they offer to you to do a tour with this agency, do not think about it.

The Biz Cevahir went beyond our expectations. Perfect location. Quiet room. Very updated, modern beautiful. Our personal tour guide came in to look at the hotel and was most impressed.
Staff was excellent and most helpful. They made calls for us to merchants, which made communicating much easier. Breakfast buffet was expansive and tasty. So near to so many sights. Evening walks were a delight. Will recommend to anyone going to Istanbul.

We stayed at hotel Biz Cevahir during our 4 days trip to Istanbul . The hotel staff were all exceptional from the time I contacted them to make the reservation until we checked out of the hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by half of the hotel staff. Hikmet, Murad, Ahmet were always available to assist with any request or help about the local area. We’ve received few good recommendations from them about the local area and restaurants. The ladies from housekeeping were all smiles every time we met them in the lobby or the hallway and they loved playing with our two daughters. The location as many travels commented is perfect, and within a walking distance to the main attractions and more importantly to the tram station.
I already recommended the hotel to friends and family when they visit Istanbul.
Many thanks to the Biz Cevahir staff for making our stay in Istanbul more special.
