Hotel Elanaz is comfortably situated right in the center of ancient Istanbul next to “Sirkeci” train station. Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace are located within foot walking distance.
On our arrival we got lost in the maze of Sirkeci. We called the Hotel Elanaz for directions, instead of explaining they sent someone to pick us up. Being welcomed with tea and lots of advice for our sightseeing program made us feel at home at once.
The rooms are rather small, very clean, modern and stylish. Take the Bosporus view rooms: You will get a nice view on the Golden Horn and the Bosporus. We are a family of four and got the two only rooms on level 5. We felt like living in a small apartment. It is not the quietest place, but hey what do you expect in the middle of the historic town?
Breakfast is delicious and substantial – and is served until 10.30 (!).
Mr. and Mrs. Gökmen, the general managers, both speaking German and English fluently, were extremely kind and helpful at all times. So for example Mr. Gökmen helped us avoid the cue in front of the ticket box of the Hagia Sophia by ordering the tickets via internet. The rest of the staff of Hotel Elanaz was very considerate and friendly too.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Elanaz.
