“Wonderful staff, convenient location”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This beautiful hotel is located on a quiet street five minutes from many of Istanbuls main attractions, including Topkapi Palace, Haya Sophia and the Blue Mosque. You're close to everything without being engulfed in the agressive vendors and restauranteurs that are typical of the Sultanhament area. I stayed in a single room for three nights and was awed by the value for money--stylish decor, extremely comfortable bed, delicious breakfast. Esin made me feel welcome the second I walked in, and the whole Premist staff provided wonderful, friendly service. As a bonus, the hotel is across the street from a cab stand, making it easy to grab a taxi to dinner in Beyoglu and other parts of the city.

I have been to Premist with my friends in August and everything was perfect. Location is amazing and in the walking distance to the main attractions. Staff was extremely helpful, rooms were well decorated&comfotrable and the breakfast was rich and delicious. I recommend this hotel to everyone who'd like to stay in the heart of Istanbul with the perfect understanding of hospitality.

I stayed 4 nights in Premist Hotel and I could not have asked for a better place. Location was excellent, being in such close proximity to main attractions. The staff were wonderful, we were lucky to have met Esin and her incredible team who were always willing to help cheerfully. The room was decorated beautifully with the most comfortable bed. Breakfast was lovely. We were very pleased with our hotel choice and would highly recommend it to anyone.

As I said in the title, this hotel is close to perfect!My wife and I recently celebrated our honeymoon in Europe.We travelled to; Amsterdam,Barcelona, Dubrovnik & Istanbul.The Premist Hotel, was hands down the best of all the hotels we stayed in! Esin, the guest relations manager is an absolute lady and made our stay even more enjoyable than we expected.When she realised it was our honeymoon, she upgraded us to a bigger room and organized a complimentary platter for us.This was totally unexpected and very much appreciated.She was available 24/7 for any help and tips to make our stay in Turkey as enjoyable as it was.Her suggestions were excellent and she takes extreme pride in making her guests feel like kings.The Turkish hospitality in general is amazing, but Esin took it to another level.I do not have a bad thing to say about this hotel.Nothing is a problem for anyone.It's clean, convenient and special.It is also located in a superb area which is around the corner from an awesome street filled with many restaurants and bars.The only thing missing is a swimming pool.

Room Tip: Any room at the Premist is special but if possible, try get a room on the top floor with a view of t...

I've decided to write this review in advance because I think that's the right thing to do. My husband and I are at this fabulous place in Istanbul right now and we just l-o-v-e it. It's just an amazing and unique hotel, a hide gem in the city. We love absolutely everything, from the incredible double room (excellent bed!) with a wonderful bathroom (what a shower!) to the delicious breakfast (a feast!) that is kindly prepared. The entire place is extremely cleaned and well decorated. The historical center, the most exquisit mosques, palaces and museums are just around the corner and the reception people, who welcome us so kindly, also gave us valuable tips to enjoy the city. Not to mention that they give us fully assistance to book shows, tours, Turkish bath and so on. That was beyond our expectations and honestly, we couldn't have better memories of our first time in Istambul. We're really having the time of our lives here especially because the entire team is so dedicated and put love and care in everything they do. Keep doing this excellent job, guys! That's precious and priceless!
