Perfect location to explore old city. 2 mins walk to Blue Mosque, 5 mins walk to Aya Sofia, 10mins walk to Topkapi. Yusuf and his team are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too trouble for them. Breakfast is very variety. Complimentary tea and snack all the time in the lobby. 5% discount pay cash.

I`d like to say great thanks to the staff of this hotel. Everything was perfect:
- location (the hotel is situated in the historical heart of Istanbul. you need in 1 min in order to get to Blue Mosque or Aya-Sofiya. There are lots of facilities around the hotel: shops, cafes, change office, hummam, taxi station and so on);
- hotel itself (everything that related to the WHH Istanbul is on the top!!! I really like this small but extremely comfortable, stylish, nice hotel. The room is nice with a pot and cups, a good bathroom and a big mirrow. The staff is VERY polite, always ready to help in ANY problems or questions you have. Everyone speaks English. The chief manager is very helpful, I think there is no any questions that he doesn`t know the answer! He is a real exemple for all the managers of the world top hotel !!! I
- breakfast is good (lots of fruits, vegetables, eggs, musli, porridge, jam, toasts, LOTS of sweets....)
- you can pay by card or by cash (dollars/euros/rubles) and get 10% discout in this case.

IF YOU`ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO VISITING ISTANBUL, CHOOSE THIS HOTEL, YOU`LL NEVER REGRET !!! IT`S THE BEST ONE !!

World Heritage Hotel is wonderful! I stayed here for two days just last week. The staff are super friendly and helpful. They are always available and ready to answer any questions. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, Obelisks and Grand Bazaar. The rooms are spotlessly clean. Free wi-fi and cable tv are available. The breakfast has everything you could possibly want to eat. Fresh fruit, eggs, meat, pastries and more. There is even coffee, tea and treats in the lobby every afternoon. I will definitely stay here again.

This located is conveniently situated in Sultanhamet and close to all the historic part of Istambul.
The staff is really helpful, extremely gentle and professional: Zilib, the young lady at the reception and Yussuf.
The only 2 negative points I would point out: beds size (too small) and breakfast area (extremely small) but they are doing some building improvements so I would think they will deal with this.
Thank you Zilib and the staff for your help.

This is a small hotel at the best possible location if you are spending a few days in Istanbul. It is just by the Hippodrome and less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia etc. Everybody from the hotel management to cleaning staff are making everything they possibly can to make you feel comfortable and successfully so I may add! Hotel staff is extremely nice and beyond helpful. If you want they will help you plan your whole day, what sites to visit, best times to do it and recommend best possible restaurants according to what you are looking for. The rooms are cozy and very clean. I booked this hotel as they had the highest ratings on all possible websites and I left understanding why and the most satisfied I have ever been with a hotel stay.

We booked here after reading the glowing reviews about the great service and I have to say - everyone was pretty spot on. The service here was awesome. Yousef, Ebru and the rest of the team were awesome. Nothing was too much to ask. They were also sweet enough to upgrade our room to something a little bigger at no extra charge when they saw we had a pretty active toddler with us (more room to move). We really loved staying here and would highly recommend this hotel to everyone who visits... and may not be looking for ultimate luxury... but for a smaller hotel with amazing service. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were small but the shower was super powerful.

The location is really great - right at the heart of the Sultanahmet area - the blue mosque, the haigasophia and awesome shops and restaurants are all walking distance. The area is lively and the hotel is perfectly located to take advantage. You get wifi access from all the rooms and reception was never a problem. The breakfast spreads are big... but could do with a little everyday variety. There's free coffee, tea and other goodies at the recpetion looby at all times of the day and night.

All in all - we loved our stay and when we moved to an apartment we booked through airbnb.com... we were still missing the heritage hotel. Thanks for making our stay really memorable!

Room Tip: Larger rooms don't have much of a view. The smaller rooms overlook the street leading to the mai...

The rooms are very cosy and clean.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone
