perfect location

We got all that we were promised and more. Great location where everything is within walking distance from the Blue mosque to the sea of marmara. The breakfast is a good mix of ethnic and European dishes. The airport is about 20 minutes away and a taxi ride cost 40 liras. The staff were very helpful and professional. A great value for the money.

Be sure cafes are serving Italian expresso coffee--Lavazza, Sega Fredo, Illy--because many will give you Turkish coffee, insisting it is Italian. Do NOT miss the mosque of Suleiman the Magnificent; it's the best one inside and out (gardens).

a DEFINITE recommendation!!!

The Ferman Hotel is a GREAT place to stay while visiting Instanbul. Not only is it right in the heart of everything, but the hotel is exactly as seen in the pictures, to a "tee"!!! I have been on other vacations where the hotel looked great and beautiful online but when arriving, it was not. Not the Ferman - everything was PERFECT!!! The view is remarkable and breakfast every morning was great! The prices are very good for the deal you get! The staff is friendly and helpful and having airport shuttle is fantastic - a sure way your taxi driver doesn't get lost and you get there quickly and safely. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Istanbul

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Traffic is pretty bad on the Galata Tower side of Istanbul so try walking around. We walked from our hotel to Galata tower (just over Galata Bridge). It was a beautiful walk and much faster than a cab stuck in traffic. However, if traffic doesn't bother you - try a double decker "Big Bus Tour" - we do them for every city we go to and they're great. You see a lot and learn a lot! (48hr tours are better and with the traffic in Instanbul, you will need the extra time).

Best Hotel I've Stayed In

I had no idea what to expect when I booked this hotel. Finding it was a bit of a pain, but my friend did not have any trouble. It is right near the Blue Mosque so it was a pleasant walk trying to find it from where my cab driver dropped me off. The room was very nice - I think we were upgraded to a nicer room - a big comfortable bed and an awesome shower. The view from the rooftop terrace was incredible. The drink selection was a little subpar, but just don't get wine - stick with beer and enjoy the view. The breakfast on the rooftop terrace had a lot of selection. It was within walking distance of all major attractions as well as the tram system. However, the thing that blew this hotel out of the water was the amazing staff. They were on top of everything and helped out so much with anything we asked. Seriously, the absolute friendliest staff of any hotel I've ever stayed at! They got us a tour booked along with a person to walk us to the nearby pharmacy, set me up with my early morning ride to the airport, allowed us to check in early AND enjoy the free breakfast, and fixed our room's door as soon as we mentioned their was a problem.

Check out this place a few blocks away called "The Meat House". A local guy took us there, and while we wound up kicking him to the curb, the food was amazing and the staff super friendly. We wound up hanging out with the bartender after the place closed and had a beer. Awesome!

pleasant and convenient hotel

The Freman Hotel is a wonderfully located place on a beautiful street. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the enhanced the wondrous experience of Istanbul. The breakfast left a little to be desired but it was adequate and it's location on a roof terrace overlooking the glories of Istanbul was priceless.

Great Location, Great Staff, Awesome Value

The location (quiet, quaint cobblestoned street in the heart of one of the best areas in Istanbul) can't be beat, and the staff were exceptionally polite and accomodating. I picked this hotel after just a few minutes of research online, based mostly on the price. I would have been happy with just a room to lay my head and store my bags, but I got way more than that. The room was spacious, sophisticated, and very clean. The breakfast options were plentiful, and it was served every morning on the gorgeous rooftop deck with panoramic views overlooking the Blue Mosque and the sea. It was very easy to walk to all the popular sights, resturants, and public transportation. The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are only about three blocks away, and the Grand Bizzare is (at most) a 10 minute walk.

Hotel is comfortable and clean. Staff went out of their way to be hospitable and professional. On a safe and quiet street, just off the main tourist pathways. I'd be pleased to stay in The Ferman next time through Istanbul.
