Deniz House is a lovely small hotel within an easy walk of Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque but far enough away that you don't feel totally submerged by the tourists. We asked for a room looking out to the sea which is a treat in the morning with all of the ships going by. There are train tracks very close but you don't hear them when your sleeping. The reception people are very kind and helpful. The bathroom was good but our room didn't have the kind of endless hot water that I like (I admit to loving a bathtub filled up with steaming water). The hotel provides tea or coffee and biscuits free in the afternoon up on the roof level diningroom which is a nice touch. Wifi worked well and there are lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

My wonderful experience at Deniz house led me to stay there once more. And I was met with the same homely atmosphere as during my first stay. The warm welcome, the comfortable rooms, and the friendly staff who are always courteous and willing to guide you, are the few of many positive points of this hotel. I recommend this hotel to all who travel and still want a homely experience but in a Turkish way.

Upon arriving in Istanbul we learnt that the hotel we had originally booked had been closed, therefore we was very pleased to be able to book at Deniz Houses. After viewing the twin room which overlooked the river, we agreed a price with the very friendly, helpful reception. The hotel is very quaint, situated near all major attractions such as the Blue and Pink Mosques. The traditional Turkish breakfast is fresh, plentiful and eaten in a very cute room at the top of the building, with an outside area so that you can see the Blue Mosque and the river whilst eating. The location allows you to walk to all the attractions, which is a god send considering the public transport is quite difficult to master. I would recommend this hotel to anybody who wants a clean, quaint, friendly hotel in the heart of old Istanbul.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the river, may want to check air conditioning as ours was not working...

This lovely little hotel is quiet comfortable clean and well situated. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the breakfast good. Our room had a fantastic sea view and was cosy and quiet. I would make this my first choice if I ever went back to Istanbul.

This was the first time I was offered a complimentary breakfast that wasn't disgusting, sparse or misleading. They had some traditional Turkish breakfast staples as well cereal and muffins. Great service, polite and friendly staff and a very central location. Most of the points of interests like the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia are an 8 minute walk...More important, Deniz House was affordable without sacrificing basic comforts.

Though in a superb location on a quiet street a few minutes walk from the main sites the hotel proved disappointing. Our main complaint was the size of the room which was tiny. My husband is not small and we had to take it in turns to move around the bed. The food was well prepared but lacked variety and the hot food was only lukewarm which was a shame. There were several polite men on reception but their knowledge of basic tourist information was poor - they did not know about the museum pass and were only interested in selling their very expensive excursions. A missed opportunity.
