“A very nice hotel right in the heart of Istanbul”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This hotel is lovely...comfortable rooms, clean, nice toiletries are provided, but the BEST part is the location and the wonderfully helpful front desk staff. Have a meal in the rooftop restaurant and on one side is the Blue Mosque, on the other side is the Bosphorus, and over to the right is the Hagia Sofia! All within 4 minutes walking distance! Also visit the underground cistern...you can purchase a lovely freshly squeezed orange/pomegranate juice.

The front desk staff are quite wonderful. SO helpful, friendly, provided a wake up all at 3 am...no worries at all! They even offered us breakfast at 3 am, which we declined...can you believe this quality of service?!!

Would return to this hotel next time for sure.

We stayed for 2 nights in Seven Hills Istanbul. Location is superb! Right in between Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque, approximately 3-5 mins walk to both and Topkapi Palace. We got a terrific balcony view of the Aya Sophia from the room. View from the top-floor restaurant is amazing, especially during dinner time. The staffs are all friendly and wonderful, ensuring our pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a good view. Wonderful to wake up to!

We stayed at Seven Hills for three nights. They were are final nights after two weeks in other parts of Turkey and Greecr. The location was ideal. Walking distance toadies attractions and train to other attractions. The breakfast each morning was good. The setting for it was amazing with great views in both directions. Traveling abroad with a three year old and almost six year old can be difficult. The Turkish people seemed to love kids or at least ours ALOT. And the staff was no exception here. The room was big enough for the four of us and was clean.

My wife, two children and I stayed at the Seven Hills Hotel in July 2012. The location is ideal -- so close to Aya Sophia and the Blue Mosque -- but the view from the roofdeck restaurant is outrageous! An unobstructed panorama of Sultanahmet and the Marmaris. The room was fantastic, and the hotel staff ensured we had an excellent stay. The breakfast buffet was diverse and delicious. Don't forget to enjoy the fresh seafood coming out of the kitchen while enjoying watching the lights come up on the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia as the sunsets. I will definitely be staying at the Seven Hills on our next trip to Istanbul.

Visited with my husband and daughter in June 2012. We stayed in the Presidential Suite which was quite spacious and adequately furnished. It was a little tired looking but still a very pleasant room and terrific balcony view of the Aya Sophia. As for location, this was hands down the best in the old city. The only other comparable location was the Yesil Ev. Everyone speaks to the terrific service at the Seven Hills and I wholeheartedly agree. Ozan, you are the best and to future residents of the Seven Hills, you must ask Ozan about his poetry books. While I have yet to have my Turkish friends translate, I can't wait to read some his work. The hi-lites of this hotel: the best rooftop terrace in Istanbul, a very good restaurant, fabulous all-around service, location, location, location and an environment where you are made to feel welcome and at home.

My daughter and I stayed at Seven Hills at the beginning and end of our trip to Turkey. The service was excellent and beyond the call of duty. The rooftop restaurant has an amazing view and good food to boot. The breakfast is very good. The rooms are all different, some smaller than others, but had the amenities we needed. The location is fantastic; it is in the Old City and near all the major sites. It is also near the tram which gives access to all pat of the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a patio

The hotel is excellent, we got a free room upgrade on arrival, staff who really want you to enjoy your stay, rooms very comfortable and restaurants (roof top and enclosed) with views to die for. It is located only minutes away from the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and a fine selection of restaurants if you fancy a change of menu. Loved it.
