“Outstanding hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Amazing service and wonderful food. The personnel is very friendly and helpful.
The rooms have traditional design which makes the stay at the hotel really special.
Perfect location and easy accessible from all main touristic attractions.
The hotel is just perfect for tourists and business people.

We had a great experience at the Premist hotel and found the location amazingly convenient.
The staff were fantastic from the person who dealt with our booking through to the bellboy and the wait staff. The constant hospitality through offers of coffee, tea and chocolate as well as the afternoon tea in the reception (coffee,tea, cake etc) was most welcome. The staff were always willing to give tips and advice and made our trip truly enjoyable.

The rooms were good and the beds extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a little small with little counterspace but there was a huge shower. Unfortunately we had problems with water pressure but perhaps this was just our room.

Overall highly recommended!

I must confess that i did not expecting this king of comfort and friendly service which I cannot get it in any city of Canada. I am not even talking about the amazing breakfast that they serve. On the other hand it is very closed to public transportations and most importantly to places like Topkapi or Yarabatan Place.

Exceeded our expectations: Excellent location (about 5 min walk from Topkapi entrance), staff is extremely friendly and rooms & common areas are really clean. We were welcomed with Turkish Coffee and a chocolate cake in our room (because we were celebrating our anniversary). Breakfast is good & abundant. They offer you omelets in the morning as well as fresh coffee (turkish, expresso) and orange juice. There is WiFi in rooms & they even offer you an iPad if you'd like to borrow one during your stay. Beds are very comfortable & warm (down pillows).

Probably the most personal and accommodating place for ages! Everything in the right measure, not invasive and as well nothing left to coincidence.
Reception, room-service, valet-service and help with last minute problems concerning flight delays and tricky locations to find was just PERFECT!

I am a frequent traveller and found great places, but this one is just something you might find in a high end calm seaside place, not in the middle of a zillion-metropole like Istanbul.

Calm (well there is the usual prayer- singing muezin, but that's all right! ;-) ) elegant baroque rooms of fantastic quality material (marble shower and sink) bed in massive wood and and and ...

The various and wide-range breakfast-buffet and the corresponding service (with a fantastic cook doing express dishes on your request in the most delightful way) was a brunch, which lasts until late afternoon and this is quite something useful in a town you never know, where to find good quality food!

Thank you all for your accurate 24/24 service! You made us stay just fantastic ... well, we were almost forgetting to go to see the city! ;-)

See you soon on our next trip to town!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Premist Hotel. The standard rooms in the main house are a bit small but the interior is nice and of good quality. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. If you want to stay to many of the main attractions in the city this hotel is a very good choice.

Unique and special. Great location. Great stuff. Great architecture.

Guys you will definitely enjoy very nice breakfast and homemade jams. Stuff quality and hospitality above 5 star hotels. Walking distance to the heart of Istanbul Historical Center. Sleeping next to Topkapi Palace Walls. It is highly recommended.
