"Great hotel in the Old City"
The staff at the Best Point were very refreshing and warm. As soon as we walked in the receptionist had us sit down and asked what we would like to drink and brought baklava to us. The breakfast they serve in the morning is great and it is nice they have afternoon snacks. The location is good, if you want to be in the Old City.

my boyfriend and i spent three nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay! the hotel staff members were all very friendly and helpful, and they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home. cold beverages were always offered after we made our way back from a day of sightseeing, which was great! the neighborhood has lots of restaurants, although we didn't really have any food that we were super impressed by. the hotel is within walking distance from a ton of historical sites, and it's a short walk to the tram. the breakfast was pretty good too.

"Ideal hotel for Old Town Istanbul"
The standard rooms are fairly basic and there is no lift. However, the service from the staff is excellent and more than makes up for the lack of facilities. Staff are on hand to welcome arriving guests with a drink and baklava. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Meze are available free of charge in the lobby in the late afternoon and these are replaced by cakes and pastries at 7 30 pm. Tea/coffee is also freely available. Breakfast (on the top floor with views over the city) is buffet style but the kitchen will make omelettes if requested. Freshly squeezed orange juice is provided as is an array of fresh fruit and bread/cereals with sweet and savoury items. The hotel is approximately 10 minutes walk away from the main sights so is ideally located.

"Best Point Hotel is the Best Hotel"
We had a four night stay and it was great. There were 5 in our party and the owner, Fatih, and his staff could not do enough. The breakfast on the roof terrace was really good, plenty of choice and special requests no trouble. The freshly squeezed orange juice is fab. Fatih will give advice on what to see and how to get there. He will also book restaurants and arrange free transport to the restaurant. We had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely stay at Best Point again.

"Great hotel, great location and friendly staff"
This was our first experience of visiting Istanbul, for my husband and myself, i had read reviews about this hotel before booking on-line. It was just as expected, it is a small family run business, it has clean, comfortable rooms, and the staff provide great customer service. The staff at reception desk speak good English as well as other languages, they were helpful, and had good knowledge about the area. We were treated with respect and made to feel very welcome, kitchen staff would encourage us to try turkish delights at breakfast which contained a huge selection of foods, fresh fruit, juices, tea, coffee, cheese, meats, cakes etc.etc. The hotel is situated in the old city of Istanbul, just behind the Blue Mosque and just a short walk from Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and other famous landmarks. The hotel is situated in a area which is lined with cute gift shops, hotels, cafes and restaurants, it has cobbled streets so walking in high heels could be tricky. The hotel provided complimentary snacks and drinks during the day, which were a welcoming sight each time we stepped into the hotel after a day full of sightseeing. Our room was cleaned and tided-up everyday and towels were changed. We were able to travel on the tramway which was near the Sultan Ahmet Square, by following instructions given by staff and we were able to go on the Bosphorus cruise, and visit the Princes Islands at a fraction of the price charged by tour operators.

"Very friendly and welcoming hotel"
We had a lovely stay at the Best Point Hotel. The location is great and the staff were all incredibly kind and helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The only negative aspect of the hotel was that I found it a little noisy as our room overlooked the street. It's not a busy road, but there is a fair bit of activity late in the evening and as we sleep with the window open the sound carried into the room. So i would recommend requesting a room at the back. Everything else was lovely, very clean, lovely breakfast and delightful staff.

"Great location and kind reception staff"
We were really treated so well by receptions staff. They were fantastic. The staff at the breakfast room seemed overwhelmed with the business of their hotel and really did not have enough room on the breakfast room rood top for all at the same time. However hotel experience was great , great breakfasts welecome drink on arrival and also tapas and glass of wine at 17 h 00 helps budget travellers not really need a dinner. Cobbled streets and in a quiet area. Don't need an alarm clock though as the song from the Mosque nearby wake you on first light- all part of the Trukey experience. Would recommend this hotel try to get upgraded room as we did as I saw the standard rooms and they are a bit dark, but still spacious. great little courtyard. be prepared to climb lots of stairs though . They carry luggage but no lifts. good stay though - would not recommend to elderly travellers due stairs though

Staff were very helpful at all times, genuinely so, and very friendly. The variety and quality of food for breakfast on the roof terrace was fantastic (look out for dolphins in the Sea of Marmara in the mornings and the sunset views of the Blue Mosque). Rooms (we had two different ones in two different stays) were very clean, well kitted out, and comfortable large beds. Can't fault anything about it.

This was my first trip to Istanbul and my stay at Best Point has paved the way to many more for sure. This hotel offers the ultimate value for money and the quality of its staff is the icing on the cake. Kick start your day with breakfast on the terrace with fantastic views of the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. No tourist attraction in Sultanahmet is more than a 15 minute walk away from this hotel. You can get precise information on how to plan your day ahead from the hotel staff itself. Getting to Taksim square is also easy with taxis freely available at all times. Brilliant.

The location is great and the level of personal attention at Best-Point is second to none. Cornucopia of breakfast-buffet and many other personal attentions of the staff (at all levels!) + cleanliness. Walking distance & proximity of major sites such as Topkapi, St Sophie, the Blue Mosque, the Constantine Column, the Grand Bazaar and many others (eg.sea-front), make the Best-Point a "come-back-to-place". Fatih Yirildim has built a great staff and hotel making the Best-Point Hotel with its prime location a premium choice for a clean, helpful, friendly and fun stay in Istanbul.

Io e la mia ragazza abbiamo soggiornato per sei notti al Best Point Hotel e la scelta si è rivelata azzeccatissima. Accoglienza calorosissima, la migliore mai ricevuta fino ad ora, cordialità, disponibilità del personale eccellente, ci siamo sentiti come a casa. Situato a pochissimi passi (due minuti a piedi) dalla Moschea Blu e da Hagia Sofia e a cinque minuti dalla fermata del comodissimo tram T1 con il quale si può arrivare a piazza Eminonu e nel quartiere di Beyoglu. La nostra stanza (la 105) situata al piano terra, era una tripla deluxe molto ampia, ben arredata, con pavimento in parquet, spaziosi comodini e armadi, tv lcd, una scrivania, un tavolino, tre sedie, frigo bar, cassaforte e nel bagno un grande box doccia dotato di un piccolo hammam. A disposizione nella camera anche pantafole, spazzolini per i denti. Connessione Wi-Fi libera in tutto l'hotel. La colazione a buffet , inclusa nel prezzo, molto soddisfacente ed inoltre dalle 17.30 a disposizione degli ospiti, gratuitamente, assaggini di dolci, frutta, vino, tè. La vacanza in questa fantastica città è stata ancor più bella grazie alla scelta di questo hotel, che consigliamo senza ombra di dubbio.

Ottima ubicazione per chi alloggia per la prima volta ad Istanbul. Vicinissimo ai più famosi monumenti: moschea blu, Santa Sofia, palazzo topkapi, cisterna sotterranea.Camere con buon standard di pulizia e confort. Abbondante colazione con ampia scelta di cibi dolci fatti in "casa". Molti dolcetti turchi che non vengono variati finché non vengono consumati dagli ospiti. Ciò ha il difetto di renderli poco freschi nel corso del soggiorno ma comunque apprezzabili. Personale gentilissimo e disponibile. Durante la giornata l'hotel mette a disposizione un angolo di ristoro ( dolce e salato) per break. Gratis. Il quartiere e' il quartiere storico della città dove pullulano ristoranti e negozi di souvenir. Per chi risiede in città la seconda volta, consiglierei un quartiere più vivace e meno turistico.

"Mitten im Herz von Istanbul"
Typische, kleine Familienpension im Touri-Hotspot Istanbuls. Extrem freundliches, hilfsbereites Personal und ein kompetenter Manager umsorgen jeden Gast - man fühlt sich zu Hause. Zimmer zweckmäßig und sauber, funktionierende Dusche, beste Matratzen und Ruhe im Hotel gewähren einen erholsamen Schlaf. Frühstücksbuffett für türk. Verhältnisse sehr reichhaltig und schmackhaft. Selbst der Kaffee ist nicht übel wie schon mal in 5-Sterne-Hotels. Eine besonders liebe Köchin zaubert köstliche Abwechslungen und hat ein Ohr für Sonderwünsche - auch der 5o'clock-tea ist eine grandiose Überraschung. Bis zum späten Abend stehen kleine Leckereien in der Lobby zur Überbrückung des Hunges bis zum Aufsuchen eines Restaurants. Tee oder Wein inkl. - alles gratis - mir schleierhaft, wie sie das für diesen Preis anbieten können. Jeder kleine Mangel wie z.B. defekte Glühbirne wird sofort behoben. Ein Hotel rundum zum Wohlfühlen zu einem unschlagbaren Preis - jederzeit wieder, auch für einen Daueraufenthalt zu empfehlen. Man ist sofort en famille. Ein sehr schöner, preiswerter Service ist auch ein ( vorher anzumeldener ) Limousinenservice zum Flughafen. Minuspunkte: Treppe sehr steil, Ältere Reisende sollten um ein nieder liegendes Zimmer bitten. Kaum Deutschkenntnisse - ohne Englisch wirds pantomimisch. Taxifahrer kennen dieses Hotel kaum - immer Probleme beim Auffinden - besser einen Ort in der Nähe angeben - z.B. Sultanahmed-Moschee und den kurzen Rest zu Fuß gehen. Ein Dank der traumhaften Lage

Sehr schönes Hotel mit tollem Team. Lage sehr gut, nette Cafes und Restaurants fußläufig Ein Genuss ist das Frühstück auf der Dachterrasse mit Blick auf den Bosporus und die Blaue Moschee. Oropax für die Nacht nicht vergessen! Als Anregung: die Blumenkästen auf den Fensterbänken könnten mal erneuert werden. Die Tipps fürs Sightseeing sind toll, wären aber angebrachter, nachdem der Gast erstmal aufs Zimmer gehen kann, um sich nach einer langen Fahrt (3 Std. bei Stau) vom Flughafen Sabiha Gökcgen frisch zu machen.

"Great location, amazing breakfast view"
07/22/15 BA_Minerva Ottawa, Canada
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Best Point and can highly recommend it. The rooms were clean and fresh and it has two key advantages: a) The location -- only five minutes walk to the Blue Mosque and ten minutes to the tram which brings you downtown and to the coast; and b) the view from the breakfast terrace -- overlooking the Blue Mosque and the sea. Breakfast was quite hearty, lots of eggs and breads, though the cheese selection was very Turkish (i.e. salty). In the evenings, there were some modest snacks (cookies, mezze) for free on the ground terrace, which was good for relaxing after a long day. Our only small complaint was that the snacks did not seem to get refreshed, put out in the afternoon and getting a bit stale by the end of the day (but it was free, so can't really complain). We also noted the lack of a microwave for guests (although the staff let us use the microwave in the staff kitchen downstairs). We travelled with a baby, and the crib provided by the hotel was the best we had the entire Turkey trip: wide and with a soft duvet and the hotel even provided a little plush fish toy. We stayed in the basement, which we would recommend for people with kids, fewer neighbours and with the terrace on top you won't hear or disturb too many people. The staff was friendly and attentive to the needs of the baby.

"A hidden jewel of a hotel!"
07/07/15 EstelleQ8 Kuwait
It's taken me a few months to get around to writing this review, but suffice to say, it is one of the friendliest, home from home hotels I've stayed in. It wasn't easy finding somewhere to stay in Istanbul due to the abundance of hotels available, especially when you haven't been to the city before. We spent hours pouring over the internet for information and a hotel that would 'stand out'. Once we found this one, read the numerous positive reviews online and looked at the map of the city, there was no way we would have booked anywhere else. And it did not disappoint. Neither did the staff. There was a free pick up and drop off from the airport, a lovely welcome drink and nibbles on arrival and smiles all round from the reception team. The hotel itself is situated right in the centre of the old part of the city, with views of the Blue Mosque and the river from the breakfast terrace. Everything was within walking distance and the staff happily called taxis for the journeys over to the other parts of the city for us when our feet needed a rest! The hotel was sparkling clean every day and the room and bathroom were just gorgeous. Breakfast was not to be missed and even spoilt us for lunch a few days as it was hard to resist the delights of the buffet...! The breakfast team were fabulous - so friendly and welcoming every morning. The complimentary afternoon tea, coffee, sweet & savoury snacks and wine reminded me of being on a skiing holiday, coming off the slopes for tea and cakes. It was just what we needed after a day of wandering around this wonderful city, and was a perfect opportunity to chat to other visitors about places to go and eat/visit etc. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and will definitely go back and stay there again. Thank you everyone for a wonderful week!

We just spent a week-end in Istanbul. The hotel is just blocks away from the blue mosquee. The room was great and quiet. We had a turkish bath (took a while to know how to handle it :-). Free wifi OK and people nice and not too pushy. I definitely recommend the hotel for its rooftop breakfast with q view on the blue mosquee.

"Very good reservation service!"

I booked the best point hotel for my honeymoon later this year. Going by the other reviews it sounds like a great hotel. The reservation system is very good with the manager Fatih responding very quicky to all emails and issues and even offering a cash discount and free transfers to and from ataturk airport! really looking forward to my stay here!
