"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable family-run hotel in old town, very convenient - many sights within walking distance and near to public transport. Very warm welcome, pastries, tea and wine offered on arrival, mezze available (free) later in the evening. Wi-fi for each floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Point Stay"
Some confusion with type of room booked and we complained and then moved to a larger room. Very basic amenities and many stairs. Nice staff, mezes and snacks in the lobby in the afternoon. Great view from breakfast on the rooftop. Noisy during day due to construction across the street. Great location in touristy old town near the Arasta Bazaar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a city break"
Excellent hotel. Staff incredibly helpful. Nice room with air conditioning. Lovely to have complimentary nibbles and wine every day and to sit out on the roof terrace. In a perfect location, nice restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Full marks for service, comfort and refreshments!"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good location close to main sights in sultanahmet"
location is good, however it may be a bit difficult to find the hotel as there are many many other hotels in the same area. the rooms were clean enough. breakfast which is included has a variety of foods but most ppl dont really know what to eat. staff are too attentive, giving hotel guests too much attention at breakfast and at the reception. i noticed […] tip boxes placed around too. the rate was reasonable.

"EUREKA.....YOUR SEARCH ENDS HERE..."
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Resturants main attractions"
If we return to Istanbul we would stay here again. the Staff are excellent they couldn't do enough for you. They put out free snacks and wine for the hotel guests every afternoon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel itself is in a good location. I didn't find the gentlemen at the reception to be very helpful. I felt I had to ask every question in detail and confirm everything. They were not very willing to look up items if they were not familiar with them. We asked for a packed breakfast as we were leaving early the next morning to which we were asked […] to request anything we wanted. We settled on breakfast arrangements and when we came down in the morning it was not there and we were given a piece of cake. Would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A gem in Istanbul"
A very clean and comfortable hotel where the staff are so keen to be friendly and helpful. Having breakfast on the roof terrace with the Blue Mosque on one side and the beautiful Bosphorus on the other - pure magic! Perfectly located for the top tourist sites - it will not disappoint.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Point does the job and a bit more"
Good service, excellent breakfast, lovely roof terrace and nice people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beware! They try hard, but this hotel needs serious attention and renovation. The room smelt of damp, the pillows were so old they were almost flat, the breakfast offered variety but it was poor quality. Most food was over-sugared. They have very kind photos on their site. The hotel is very close to a railway line (did you want a quiet night?), and […] some of the surrounding buildings are wrecks. Oh, and you can't have any guests in your own room. The staff were welcoming, but really the best thing about the hotel was its position in Sutanahmet. I actually left for more modern hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal place to stay"
The stay at the hotel was just wonderful, the room was small, but very clean, the breakfast was excellent, lots to choose from pastries, sweets, cheese.The location was perfect, close to sight seeing and shopping. Fatih and his staff are highly trained to help and please the customers. At your arrival at the hotel, they welcome you with a turkish coffee […] and help you to find you way around the city. The hotel is quiet and very well located. I would highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Extremely friendly staff"
Enjoyed the hotel, location was great but the staff really make the difference. They serve tea in the lobby and are always genuinely friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Superb location, especially if you have a room at the front of the hotel, as it overlooks the Blue Mosque. Bedrooms are small but comfortable. Breakfasts are unusual but there's something for everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Point a Best Choice"
From the time we got there to the moment we left Fatih and his staff couldn't do enough. If you asked for anything it was done immediately; though usually you were asked first. Everything was done with a smile and sense of humour. Staff were always helpful and were able to give information and knew what to do, places to go. They even arranged a free […] taxi to and from a restaurant when we asked for a recommendation for a fish restaurant the first night. the food was excellent and good value. We liked the tips box to put tips in for all staff. The bed was very comfortable, storage space good and the bathroom very good. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. Eggs cooked to order. The location was excellent; only 10 minutes from the central area with the main tourist sites. Though the hotel was quiet (however nowhere can you truly escape the early call to mosque prayers). We thought the hotel was excellent value for money with an excellent ambience. All in all we could not fault the hotel on a single thing. We enjoyed everything and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. We were really sorry to leave and when we did some of the staff actually came out and waved goodbye.

Lovely hotel with great view of blue mosque from the terrace on the roof.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good value hotel"
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast good and some nice touches such as the drink on arrival and the afternoon snacks available to guests. Nice to find that there were no extra charges -air conditioning etc all included. Hotel is in a good position for restaurants and sights. Fairly quiet for a city centre hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Point Hotel ideal place to stay!"
As first timers in Istanbul, the hotel location and staff were great! Fatih the owner was very friendly as well as the rest of staff, all were very accomodatinga and helped us with any queries or recommendations of places to go and see. Best Point is an ideal location, behind the Blue Mosque and minutes walk from the Hagia Sophia. Being located in Sultanahmet […] it serves best for great transport links (local trams), many of the historic attractions (Blue Mosque,Hagia Sophia, Basillica Cistern, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar and some of the hammams). Would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for those visiting Istanbul for the first time. Me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back again! :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel staff ever"
We were amazed at the efforts of the hotel staff to make our stay enjoyable even to make us soup when we stayed in due to a bad cold. Always warm, friendly, helpful and available. Locaion excellent, very near to the Hagia Sofia and Blue mosque from which most bus sightseeing bus tours operated which we found very interesting. We didn't realise Istanbul […] had 20 million people, (5 million selling carpets?) There were a few seemingly stray dogs and cats who were well behaved, docile and innoculated and cared for, lovely to see. Would definetly stay here again on a return visit, but at a slightly warmer time of the year. The massed armarda of shipping in the bay waiting to go up the bosphorus strait was a sight to behold.

The rooms are a bit on the smaller side, but we had no intention to spend much time in our room. The breakfast is more than adequate, although after 3 or 4 days it might get a bit tedious, some variation would be nice. The location is very good, although its an uphill walk to the Sultanamet sights. What really made the difference was the staff. Out […] standing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay here, small, friendly and well situated."
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, idealy situated and also a good breakfast. just behind the Blue mosque, and Tram system is only a 5 minute walk too, Istanbul is easy to explore from this base. We have stayed here twice now, and are planning to go back again in June 2012.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel in a very good location"
Staff is very friendly and helpful (as everywhere in a Turkey I believe). It's a nice small hotel. I liked the breakfast. Location is very good - just few minutes walk from Sultans Harem, Sophia Mosque, Blue Mosque, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

This is my third time stay and i really liked it and i would stay in it again and again. Fantastic service and friendly staff, so i recommend it to you guysGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is a short walk from The Blue Mosque and Sultanhamet and is conveniently located in a cluster of other hotels and restaurants and a small bazaar market. The heater in my room did not work, but I never asked to see if I might be doing something wrong. The rooftop terrace has some nice views and the staff is friendly. The breakfast buffet is […] good, not great. (my special order omelette was drenched in oil) The room was OK sized, but the Satelite tuner stuck out of the wall under the TV requiring you to be careful when walking around the bed. Good value for the money. Be careful of tha taxi drivers in the area though. They will fleece you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We booked the Economy room, but was lucky to be upgraded to Standard room. There is limited space in the room as it is quite small. The breakfast is good.

"Nice place, great location"
I selected this hotel primarily on price point but was very pleasantly surprised to find that its quite a nice little boutique hotel. The service was great and the staff made some great reccomendations on how to use my limited time in Istanbul. The location was very convenient with great access to the blue mosque, Hagua Sophia, and basilica cistern. […] Its also very close to the tram for access to Taksim Square.

The hotel is not too bad, but a thing really bothered us is the first day we checked in, a hotel staff tried to sell us a tour guide"SHE". We were very uncomfortable with that, he can recommend the tour but he should not have acted like a salesman. When we rejected him, I can see the dissapointment on his face. I suppose he must receive commission!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Value in Istanbul"
We have now stayed twice at the Best Point Hotel, and it was even better the second time. The staff are wonderful, and the food great. This is the very best location for every important site in Istanbul.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Best Hospitality"
We had a truly fantastic time at The Best Point Hotel. We arrived at the hotel at 7am after a long flight from Australia, and the staff immediately welcomed us, offering us tea and Turkish coffee, and gave us valuable advice on what to do and see in Istanbul. The long journey over was soon forgotten, and true Turkish hospitality was quickly experienced. The […] hotel is located only a short walk away from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar. There is also a breathtaking 360 degree view from the rooftop terrace, where you can enjoy your breakfast (one of the very obliging waiters is all too happy to carry your meal upstairs for you!) Breakfast is delicious, offering a lovely variety including fresh fruits, cheeses, cereals, cakes and Turkish tea, of course! The hotel's street has a wonderful sense of community - it is easy to feel at home here! We urge you to stay at this hotel for an unforgettable holiday, and to experience the best of Istanbul, at a very reasonable price. Any time we have the pleasure of returning, we will most certainly stay here! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"PERFECT HOTEL IN ISTANBUL"
We stayed for 3 nights. The location is superb- the Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar are all within walking distance. The neighbour feels very safe, and the views from the roof top bar are wonderful. The staff are professional, the breakfast was great, and the rooms are sparkling clean. Our room was a bit small, but […] the location steill makes this my first choice for value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel during our three-week stay in Turkey!"
After traveling on a bus tour for 3 weeks, we were so impressed with the Best Point for our few remaining days in Istanbul. We had a queen size bed that was very comfortable. Rooms are small, but that's to be expected in the area. The bathroom was actually very large for the room size. The rooms had nice wooden floors, making it appear very clean. The […] breakfast options were extensive - many options for pastries, cookies, cake, jams, and all of the traditional cheeses, olives, etc. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall this was great value for the price of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for couples looking for great comfort and clean and modern amenities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

this is a great conveniently located hotel. the staff is kind and accommodating. they all obviously like people. we spoke no Turkish and they went out of their way to teach us the essentials.

We felt harassed on arrival , after a long […] flight and wait at airport to book events , tours ,etc with hotel when we did not book with them they soon lost interest in us and when we did not make any bookings with hotel , then service was so so .
