Eresin Crown Hotel - Special Class

0.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Comfortable hotel near all the old town sites. Rooms were extremely hot and only way to control temperature was to open window which left you exposed to all street noise including calls to prayer from the nearby Mosques.

We visit the hotel with my children and had a very nice time there. Staff is so friendly and location is just as good as it gets for the historic Istambul.

Hotel is a great location, as good as it gets. Nice employees and service even though is quite expensive.

Excellent hotel, staff and location. I was pleased with my stay,and would definitely go back. The best location, service and breakfast. Amazing view of the Bosphorus! I am a seasoned traveler,and would recommend this place hands down.

This hotel has a great location. The service was excelent. The interiors are not my usuall taste, but they did a great job adapting parts of a ruin they found in that same location and made the decor look elegant, without trying. The clenningness is great as we'll, the only thing that could be better are the mattress. ( not five star comfortable) but even so I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Good Experience. Good location. Good service. Nothing else to add.

This was my second stay at the Eresin Crown, and it was as good as the first. The location, five minutes walk from the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia, is outstanding. Staff service was friendly and efficient--we had an internet connectivity problem which was quickly resolved. The rooms are relatively small, but very comfortable. The rooftop terrace restaurant served very good food, with a beautiful view over the Bosphorus and up toward the Blue Mosque.

When I booked this hotel I had the uncertainty it would be a good place to stay , based on the look of the hotels web page . Once we arrived we found the hotel to be very well located , next door to the Blue Mosque and Haga Sofia . The lobby is really nice , it has marble flooring and a very welcoming bar/restaurant area . The staff was great , they all spoke english and they were always willing to help. The hotel also has a great roof terrace that oversees the ocean and some of the mosques . The room was pretty big , it had 2 comfortable beds , flat screen , closet , safe , and a spacious bathroom with a tub and marble fittings for the sink . I reckon Eresin Crown has all you need for a good stay in Istanbul . The only set back of this hotel is that you will be woken up at 5 am every day because of the loud speakers of the blue mosque . Some may find this interesting the first day , afterwards its a pain in the neck .

The Ersine Crowne has a lot to recommend: very clean, well-appointed lobby and rooms; friendly, competent, capable staff; fine breakfast buffet; decent location ... The problem, for me at least, was the room size. Far too small. No matter how clean or lovely, for the price it was a shoebox. Now that Istanbul has become very expensive, this is to be expected. But at $180 a night I could have gotten a better room in an equally if not more expensive city - like New York, or San Francisco. For its service, cleanliness and elegance, the hotel deserves its 4-star rating. But the rooms are 2-star size, even by Europe's Liliputian standards (and these days, Istanbul out-Europes Europe in everything from food to nightlife). Perhaps if Ersine Crowne lowered its prices I'd consider returning, and it is a hotel I would recommend, but next time I return to what is truly one of the world's greatest cities, I'll shop around.

The hotel was just great. Located in Sulthanamet the centre of the historic Istanbul, is a great place to stay, and it has a friendly staff. It has a wonderful terrace with a great view that looks upon the Blue Mosque. Higly reccomendend!!!

The Eresin Crown is a small boutique hotel. The rooms are on the smaller side but very clean and neat. The bathroom was spotless and all marble. The staff took care of all of our needs. We requested a taxi at 6:00 AM and it was at the front of the hotel in five minutes. The staff double checked the fare with the driver so we would know what to expect. Location is excellent for all of Istanbuls attractions. We felt very safe and comfortable at this hotel.
