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.

Ideal place for a short trip

Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Location is perfect for a 2 minute walk to where everything you need to see is. High recommended if you're not looking for luxury hotel experience but want a very comfortable visit to this spectacular city.

Very close to all attractions

The service was excellent! Hotel was very close to all attractions. To attend any shows or to go to a spa the staff was more than helpfull in setting up the reservations for you. They provided ways to get to the different sites. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who plans on visiting this wonderful city.

Get Away

It was a nice family oriented hotel. Very pleasant and walking distance to most tourist areas. The room was clean and simple. The noise from the street was loud on the first floor at night. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, and safe place to lay your head and keep your stuff, this is the place. However, if you are looking for a place with extra amenities where you can hang out and lounge at the hotel or sleep the day away, I would strongly suggest this is not the hotel for you. The room was very basic but functional.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You will save money to view the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Tokapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, Basilica Cistern, and the German Fountain. You do not need a tour for this. They are located in the same area and you can actually see signs for them as you walk from one to another. Be sure to buy your tours before you leave to go as it can be cheaper for the cruises and the prince island tours.

Great little hotel

This is a very good small hotel mainly due to its great location -- walking distance to almost all attractions in the old city (Sultanahmet) and lots of restaurants. The breakfast is excellent and the terrace where it's served is very nice with an amazing view. The staff was great: always friendly and helpful. The rooms are good but not special -- maybe a little cramped. The hotel street is small but busy so it may get a little noisy in particular high traffic times. On the other hand though, the same street hosts a traditional “farmer’s market” from time to time which was really nice to witness. We were very satisfied with the hotel and loved Istanbul. Would definitely recommend it.

Walk to the square between Aya Sophia and Blue Mosque during the evening. It's such a lively and happy atmosphere. Really enjoying seating there and looking at the children playing, street vendors and of course the buildings around.

Great Hotel

Excellent Hotel, the best we've ever stayed in. Very clean, tidy, quiet and calm. Great views especially from the balcony. Centrally located, just outside the Blue Mosque. In house free internet saved us searching for internet cafes. The staff are very friendly, customer focused and make you feel at home. We absolutely loved our experience.
