“Never been to a hotel like this one in 43 countries! The hotel was an experience of Istanbul in itself”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Fatih, the owner really makes this place a different experience... I really felt like I was an old friend coming to stay at his hotel - not just him, but his entire staff. And not just with me, we had booked this hotel with a wedding party of about 5-6 rooms and each and everyone of us felt the same way about the hotel. It was a different experience. From the welcome drink (get the fresh orange juice - It's SOOOO good!) to the evening snacks and coffees in the lobby, it's amazing! They go so far out of their way to help us - but the best part is just hanging out and talking to the staff.

One thing that makes this place different than others is Fatih himself who is so helpful and friendly - but he acts like one of the staff - has a regular shift at the front desk and really gets to see and respond to issues from a first hand perspective... I've never seen a hotel owner like him... It really does make staying here an experience on its own.

Location is amazing - 5 minutes to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia... about 15-20 walk to the Grand Bazaar and there is a tram station that is about 7-8 stops away from Taxsim Sqare. We also easily walked to the spice market and back when the weather was good - didn't feel like it took too long.

Some advice, I'd go with the deluxe room if you have a child...we were traveling with a 1 year old and it was an amazing room - and big enough to put the baby cot and give us and the baby enough space to run around. They also gave us a baby chair for feeding which was a huge help.

We left the deluxe room for the 2 bedroom apartment shared with our friends and that was also a nice place also. We had small issues that were dealt with immediately - another thing about the hotel we loved - if there was an issue, someone took care of it right away.

Another piece of advice - Stay in the old town area (Sultanahmet) - it was so nice to walk around and stuff - quite at night - amazing for families.

Highly recommend this hotel - we picked it because of how high it was rated on Trip Adviser and we really felt lucky to have picked this place over anything else!

Room Tip: Deluxe room was ideal for a family with a baby cot - in fact, it was awesome for anyone with lots of...

Myself and my husband went to Istanbul last week 23/03 2012. We had a very friendly welcome from the staff at the Best Point Hotel after a long tiring trip. The entire time we were in Istanbul the staff at the hotel were very helpful and could'nt do enough for us. Our room was clean and comfortable and the cleaning service was very good every day. We had clean towels and clean bed sheets. The mini bar was well stocked and we can recommened the wine which was not a bad price either. The breakfast was delicious with a variety of foods and drinks daily. Again very helpful staff when you wanted something specific, for example english breakfast tea or lighting the roof top terrace when it was closed for winter so we could sit there and enjoy the wine and views. We would recommend the restaurant Amedros in Sultanhamet delicious food especially the sultans dish prepared in a clay pot with lamb. Had a fab time and would go back to this cosy home from home hotel. The only two things my husband would like me to comment on is the fact that our room was a little small but fine for a couple and other guests could be noisy at night going in and out of there rooms. The hotel could do with having better, more substantial doors. xxx

We arrived at the hotel in the middle of the night and was very well received by a service-minded staff. The rooms were clean and delicate. The bathroom contained the amenities you want. Breakfast is tasty and the staff accommodating and service minded. The location is right in the center of old town. No noise at night. What more could you want? Recommend it to those who think a trip to Istanbul! Nina from Norway

The staff were helpful and friendly from the start and made us really welcome. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The owner was keen and a fund of local knowledge. He wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. We thought that we were in a 'one-off' hotel that had its own personality. The room was excellent with comfortable large bed for the tall, excellent bathroom (light could have been brighter) and there was plenty of storage space. Breakfast was buffet style with a very good choice and eggs to order. The hotel location was quiet but only a 10 minute stroll to the main tourist attractions and plenty of local restaurants. After a hard day's sightseeing back to the hotel for a cup of apple tea or coffee with cake. If it wasn't there you just had to ask.
Would definitely recommend the hotel and stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a de-luxe room with bath jacuzzi

We have stayed at Best point hotel for a week in March and never regreted about our decision for a minute. Apart from very good location of the hotel at Sultan Ahmet area, which is in walking distance from all main historic places such as Aya Sofia Mosque, Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, Hippodrome etc, the staff of hotel was absolutely professional and helpful. Thanks to the friendly-like attitude of the staff, especially Fatih bey and Umit bey, our stay in Istanbul has become even more memorable. They were extremely helpful in every way. This hotel makes you feel like home. All good reviews of Best Point hotel I have recently stumbled upon are absolutely true. I shall definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and everyone who has plans to visit this amaizing city.
