After Istanbul noise, this is a real respite. This is an old colonial type of place. Rooms are OK. Mine was on the side, with no specific view. Be sure to request a room with a view on the sea. You'll get your wake up call at 5 am by the muezzin, but you should be used to it by... More

This old style hotel enjoys a wonderful setting and views of the sea and the Asian side of Istanbul. On its terrace and the pool area, one feels miles away from a bustling city, as if strapped inside a time capsule where time stopped. One can see some parts of the hotel were refurbished, but the rooms would need a... More

Merit Halki Palace is a peaceful, tasteful and pretty hotel situated on Heybeliada, one of the Princess Islands at 15 kilometers from the city. The hotel is an authentic wooden construction with a lovely swimming pool, terraces and garden. Great breakfast buffet and friendly staff.

We stayed there on the new years eve, attended the dinner night and the brunch buffet next morning. Very friendly staff, clean hotel, I guess it is the best alternative on the island. 2015 prices are 250 tl per day per double room including breakfast.

Arriving at this beautiful hotel on horse and carriage was a wonderful experience. Walking in was like entering a film set for an Agatha Christie movie with glittering chandeliers, fabulous furniture, parrots and then the fantastic view over the sparkling swimming pool to the Bosphorus beyond and Istanbul skyline. The room was light and airy with great views, facilities and... More

A very nice historic hotel with the charme of past times at a great location. The rooms are ok and clean but a bit aged. They don't have air conditioning which can be a problem.
