We did a bit of searching for this hotel and it was well worth it. The location is fabulous for most of the sites you want to see. It is situtated about 1 min from the Gulhane tram stop, which I must advise you get from the aiport, its so cheap and easy, once you have bought an Istanbulkart card and out money on it at the airport. The tram ride is about 1 hour, but well worth it.

The rooms were perfect for our stay, where we were not hotel much, but very clean and modern, with aircon. the roof terrace is the best bit, the views are brilliant to watch the sunset drinking your peach tea.

The staff are all very helpful and are on hand to help with anything you need about your trip.

Some tips on trips, do the Bosphourous long tour using the company at the boat wharf, very good. All the mosques are amazing, probably the best being Suleymaniye. Make sure you also do a Hamam, we went to Cemerlitas Baths, what an experience, just go with the flow, amazing experience.

Would definetly recommend and come again.

The hotel had nice clean rooms with a great shower and AC. The only thing that would have made it more comfortable would have been more blankets or thicker ones, but I suppose I could have asked for an extra too. The breakfast was very good and the restaurant there was excellent. It was a surprise that is was that fabulous. Their menu is on the gourmet side and is different than all the other restaurants in the neighborhood which seem to all have the same things. It is also reasonable and delicious with good service. I highly recommend it!

Right in Sultanehmet, this hotel is walking distance to just about everything. A small hotel, but clean rooms and friendly staff. Quick in responding to all emails too. Enjoyed our 3 night stay here. Cost includes breakfast buffet which was good, but it was continental breakfast-would have lovedore if it was Turkish :)

Awesome hotel! Staff are friendly and very helpful and the facilities are great. Rooms are lovely and clean. Breakfast was exceptional and the hotel also has a lovely roof top bar with a beautiful view. Excellent location, within close walking distance of all major attractions like the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar and great restaurants around the area. We would definately return to the Erboy and highly recommend this hotel.

Perfect location. Helpful well informed staff. I can strongly recommend this hotel and will definately stay there on my next trip to Istanbul. Closely situated to a number of good restaurants as well as the Blue Mosque, and other attractions in the Old Town. Beautiful view from the terrace over the sea towards the Asian side of Istanbul.

We stayed at this hotel in July. In summary, it is a really nice hotel, the staff are friendly, gave us a map and pointed out all the good sights to see. They included a welcome dinner for free (3 courses) at the Pasazade restaurant which is the restaurant that you have breakfast in. The food was really good. The room itself was clean but small. Cons : The walls are super thin, you can hear next door talking and showering quite loudly and if we spoke whatever language the couple next door spoke we would've been part of the conversation! Pro: Air con! It was needed for the days we were there! So hot!

For two people, it was enough. There is also a printer in the lobby that you can print your boarding passes on departure date. We went up to the roof terrace to have a look but never went to sit up there, it has a great view so try to go and see, though there are lots of tall buildings which kind of obscure some of the nice view.
