Very impressed with the staff and location of the hotel. Hotel is old small palace. It is located at the island near Istanbul. Island has no cars!! Perfect for relaxing. Sea bus takes you kabatas in 45 minutes then tram takes you to old city in 15! Sea taxi goes to main shopping street for 100 USD.

Great place, great location but... rip-off restaurant and food, poor and pathetic service. Didnt stay overnight this time but have done so in past. Hasnt improved at all over the years. Pity because the building and its location are lovely but food and services like former USSR. It seems to cater more to small convention groups. Not good for the...

We went in november, and there were very few guests in the hotel, and it was very quiet. It was nice coming out of the hustle and bustle of Istanbul to some quiet relaxation on the island. The island is childfriendly in that there are no cars. We had two interconnected rooms for the family with two adults and two...

We did not stay in this hotel, but we went here for the swimming pool, as we didn't really trust the cleanliness of the waters so close to a big city like Istanbul. It was a perfect relaxing day at the swimming pool of the hotel. I believe it was something like 45 TL each to get to use their...

A fantastic boutique hotel far from the madding crowd of Istanbul. Perfect location on Chalki (Heybeli) island. The historical building was totally renovated after the fire in 1991. Very helpful staff, nice terrace with a view and a big pool in the garden... The only minus was the shabby condition of the rooms. They need to be refurnished and updated...

The hotel is situated in an island. Renovated old building in a beautiful area. The management and the staff are very helpful. Also, the hotel has a small pier that sea taxi can approach. It is only 45-60 minutes from İstanbul.

We will certainly stay in this hotel again. We spent here five nights and had a very good experience. The hotel is 10 minutes walking from the boat and restaurants. Since it is up the hill, you better take a horse-cart when arriving with suitcases. The swimming pool is great, the restaurant decent and there are several place where you...

The rooms in this hotel are dated and boring... but the lobby is lovely and the staff very friendly. The pool was really nice and the breakfast was VERY good.... although we were there on a day when there was a business conference at the hotel, so I dont know if the breakfast was amazing as a result of those...

As this is the only Hotel on Heybeliada there is nothing to copmpare it to, but I was swayed by Time Out's description as this being "one of the finest hotels anywhere in Instanbul". However that was far from true; have they never been to the Four Seasons ! The hotel lacks air conditioning and the room we were first...
