Great stay in old Constantinople

Agreat little guest house. It ticks all the boxes. Have stayed in other places in Istanbul but this one the reviews are genuine. Its a little hard to find as in a nice quiet back street with views. Staff are great as are the housekeepers.The place is small and rooms are also, so if you like big find another place, but you will miss a real good place to stay. Made my last days in Europe perfect Thanks Deniz

Get to Ayer Sofia early in summer Gates open at 8am[ not open Monday?] The crowds are to much aftre an hour. Hop on/ off bus is a good buy for 20lira 24 hour validity. Can do 3 tours, one company has a trip to the hills on the Asian side at sunset included in the 3 tours.. Relaxing 2 hours

All you need

Very good place to stay, if you want to discover the city.. all ( ok most.. ) reachable by foot. Clean rooms, good service. No luxury, but all you need!

Excelent location

Excellent location hotel in the middle of the ancient area. But, First the hotel photo view you see on the website is for the good location hotel, Because when you see the hotel photos you see the first hotel building photos with good view on Marmara see. But when you arrive to the hotel, you will be surprised that they will host you in another building behind the hotel with no view and rooms underground. Second When you book and choose the hotel includes Airport Shuttle service you will be having an impression that the Airport Shuttle is free, But after booking you will be surprised that the Airport Shuttle not free and you have to pay 25 Euros for one way Airport Shuttle service and 50 Euros for round trip.

I stayed here with my couple and the location is excelent. If you want to get to visit the principal historical landmarks and enjoy a traditional experience in Istanbul, this is a fine place to stay. The breakfast was ok, but it could get better.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

If you want to have some fish for dinner, beware of the restaurants under the bridge at Eminonu. The zone was recommended by some of the local people, and it might be a good place to eat, but we did not speak turkish and the waiters there try to charge as most as they can for everything (bread, water, service, etc.). Maybe you can try on the Egyptian Bazaar.

Great location, excellent service, lovely buffet, nice room!

We stayed at Deniz Houses for the first 3 nights of our Turkey travels. So close to everything. If you are not staying in this district of Istanbul, you will be wasting time and money traveling to and from. The location allowed us to return to our room and rest from jet lag so we could easily and quickly go back out! Clean room and facilities. We chose the sea view which was great. Some current port construction going on 24/7 but we would stay here again even with this. VERY helpful staff. Felt very safe at all times of day/night. We absolutely recommend the Deniz Houses! ~Charley and Laura, AVENTURAS LANGUAGES

Do the Blue Mosque and Sofia Mosque. The Cistern was the best surprise and a must! Watch out for the carpet sales! They will do anything to get you in the shop, then offer a "tea" under the guises of warm cultural traditions. Know what you are getting into...almost like a time share operation! There are a few shops of different items that are prices marked which we preferred.

Excellent hub for sightseeing

My sister and I visited Istanbul for 4 nights (3 full days). We intended on only using the hotel for breakfast and sleeping. And this hotel was perfect for it! Location is less than 10 minutes from Blue Mosque. You can take the metro/tramway to the hotel (with only one transfer). My only complaints are the room I had was tiny. Besides the bed, not much else in the room (had difficulty fitting luggage in, sort of).

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the M1 and T1 rail/tram lines to get to the hotel from the airport. Will save you a decent amount of money over shuttle/taxi.
