Wonderful introduction to historical Turkey

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Erguvan. The hotel is kept spotless and all the staff were friendly and helpful. There is a nice roof top breakfast ,or dining area with a great view of the Blue Mosque. The location is extremely convenient for most of the "Must see" attractions, and Bosphorus cruises and other excursions to Troy etc can be booked virtually next door to the hotel. There are also an abundance of Restaurants nearby,and the excellent Istanbul Tram Service is only a 10-15min walk away at the Sultanamet stop. The only small criticism I have is that we would have preferred twin beds,and that the mattress on the double bed we had was very hard. But I'm sure that these small problems would have been sorted out, had we asked. I would definitely Recommend this Hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul.

Do not,Do not, do not under any circumstances carry your wallet in your back pocket,particularly on the trams or other crowded places.I had mine stolen on the first day,but fortunately I had left my bank card and other valuable documents in the Hotel safe.

City beak

Perfect location. Hotel very clean and staff very welcoming, small rooftop restaurant we used once as we had been out all day had some mezes and glass of wine and it was fine. Excellent restaurants nearby. Good value for money and would recommend. Make sure when prices given to ask if euro or lira!

Booked trips before we went which meant we could cram a lot in a few days. Guide knew how to negotiate the queues it was very busy. Could have wasted a lot of time finding our way around
