We loved the Elanaz for its size and personal service from each and every staff member and manager. From arrival to late check out everyone went out of their way to help make our stay memorable, opening doors, fetching tea, providing useful information and loaning things such as guide books and an Istanbul pass for public transport.
The location is excellent, five minutes from the main sights of the Historic Peninsula, trains, trams, ferries and buses but there are dozens of hotels nearby so this is not unique. What is unique is the quality of the accommodation and breakfast, the cleanliness, and the people.
You do not expect to get a mini bar, branded toiletries/ note paper/ pencil/ maps/ bath robe/ slippers in small establishments like this but at the Elanaz they have thought of everything.
The only downside which is outside the control of the hotel is the construction work nearby which brought cement mixers down the street until late at night. When this is complete the street should be quite quiet at night.
We would recommend this hotel most highly and can't imagine ever going elsewhere if we returned to Istanbul.
