I was here with my friend and had an absolutely great time! Great location within walking distance of many sites and attractions. Staff was great and always very helpful. Gave us some great tips as to things to see and places to visit, and were more than happy to help us find our way. Even went so far as to book tours or transportation. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a convenient and quiet place!

My family and I was personally satisfied with the overall service of Erguvan Hotel. Although i experienced initial confussion with my external transfers when I got into Istanbul, but when i finally arrived to my hotel, the kindness, and warmth of the staff made me feel at ease.
The staff are very prompt in meeting your needs and will tell you what you or you family can do in Istanbul.
The Terrace view of the blue mosue was brilliant and being a muslim, i appreciated hearing the daily azan which i loved.

Room Tip: Room was allcoated to me as opposed to me asking. It was fine.

Stayed 5 nights and were delighted. Very comfortable, quiet room; excellent breakfast; copious hot water for lovely deep bath; very friendly staff; superb location ie three minutes from Sultanahmet Square. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room 33 - great view of Sea of Marmara, esp at sunset.

My wife and i stayed here for four nights and have to say that the location of Erguvan is great. So, if you land here based on the TripAdvisor reviews expecting luxury 5* hotel accommodation, then change your mindset. What Erguvan is, is a charming boutique hotel with only a handful of rooms, so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a Hilton, Hyatt etc. For example when we arrived, during particularly bad weather in Istanbul, there had clearly been a leak in the reception area, and our room was a little bit small for what we were used to, and the pillows weren't the best in the world. HOWEVER, despite these negatives I will still give Erguvan a reasonably high score.

Firstly, the staff here are very honest, helpful and accommodating. We were greeted by a sit-down welcome, chocolates, minor admin and check-in, then all the major sights and attractions were pointed out on a map. This is a small hotel run by a team of very enthusiastic staff, who seem to see themselves as guardians of your holiday - its more than just staff who give you a room then forget about you. They love Istanbul and want you to love it too. Any question we had they answered, even when we phoned them while out and about. They also seemed like a good reference point, for questions about the city.

We were in a room facing the road, but the windows really do block out a lot of road noise, so this wasn't a problem, and if the weather is nice you get great views of Istanbul and the Blue Mosque at breakfast time from the terraces.

The other great feature is the location. The Blue Mosque is easily 3-5 mins walk away and so therefore Aya Sofia, Basilica cistern, Hippodrome, Topkapi Place are all in close proximity too. The grand bazaar is very close by, about 10-15 mins walk. Also, Buhara 83 restaurant is nearby for tasty grilled kebabs and chicken! After visting Hodpasha to see the whirling the dervishes, the taxi ride back was only 10Tl, and took only about 10-15 mins too.

Overall, we would stay here again.

We stayed a week here. It was wonderful. I state that because we moved to another section of the city and hotel as part of the tour. Neither the hotel or location was on par with the Erguvan. Breakfast on the roof terrace, the staff, the tiny court yard, windows that OPEN, the deep bathtub and the location in the old city made our first trip to Istanbul memorable. Housekeeping staff even seemed to follow the weather--a wool blanket appeared in the duvet cover the day before the weather turned chilly.

We recently returned home (October 12) after spending 8 special days at the Erguvan Hotel in Istanbul. We were totally satisfied with our accommodations and could not have been more pleased with the staff especially Murat. Everyone at the hotel was anxious to provide us with anything we needed. The breakfast was always an excellent way to start the day and our evening meals were very good as well. We would choose this hotel again if we were visiting Istanbul.
