I am definitely staying here when i am in istanbul next time. Its owner Mr Yusuf makes you feel at home.
The place is at about 5 mins walk from Blue Mosque / Aya Sofia /Topkapi Palace. Also at nearly 5 mins walk you have Metro.
Generally in many reasonably priced hotels, like this near Sultanhamet, there are no Elevators/Lifts which to me is a big inconvinience as most of these hotels serve breakfast at rooftop (as they have great view of Sea of Marmara) - but the great thing about Serdivan is that It has an Elevator. Although we were staying at floor 1, and breakfast was at floor 7, it was very easy. We also used to go to roof at sun set time to seee the beautiful colors of the sky-great experience.
Mr Yusuf, unlike most of Turkish ppl, speak great English. When i last visited Istanbul in 2008 we stayed in a fous star and even their staff at reception didnt know good english. But Mr Yusuf speaks very good english which is a big big releif in a city where you need someone who speaks Turkish even to put more credit in your fone.
Another grt advantage of Serdivan is that it has a next door supermarket and travel/mobile shop. In a tourist city these things are of grt value.
This place is 10 on 10 in all aspects!!!!
