Guest House Berk is a small family run hotel. It is perfectly located, on a quiet street in Sultanhamet, a short walk away from Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and the Blue Mosque. The Evrensel family, who have run this hotel for decades, have lived and studied in the U.K . and the U. S. They speak excellent English, understand the needs of travelers, and could not be more helpful and accomodating to their guests. They will arrange airport transport and book reservations for their guests on request.
The rooms are comfortable, and the superior class ones in particular are very large and well furnished.
The Berk provides a delicious Turkish breakfast buffet , with homemade crepes, eggs, and the usual Turkish assortment of olives, cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh melon. Coffee is brewed, not instant as at so many Turkish hotels.
Overall, Guest House Berk is a gem. I have stayed there twice -- in 2004 and 2007 -- and hope to stay there again.
