  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The location of this property was perfect. It was close to Sulieman Square, where three of the most visited sites in Istanbul are located. It was also within walking distance to public transportation and only a short distance to the Galata Bridge. Breakfast was beyond amazing with a view that is exceptional! Yusuf, at the reception, was outstanding! He drew routes on the map, explained the transportation system, suggested restaurants,...we were truly ready for a grand visit after our help from Yusuf. I would definitely return to the Ferman Hotel on future visits to Istanbul.

    It was okay, the staff was very helpful. There really was not a restaurant just a breakfast buffet so guests need to be aware,so they can decide where to eat their other meals. Location was great and the view from the restaurant was wonderful.

    2 days in Instanbul!

    Amazing spread of breakfast buffet on the terrace overlooking the water was the best part of our stay! Great location in the old city. Enjoy the view of the blue mosque in the sunset as you lounge in the rooftop tearrace after a busy day of sightseeing. Bring your own wall charger (for American electronics) if you have a need to stay connected online. We had to buy one when we got there and left it at the hotel so others (unprepared like us) can use it. Staff are really friendly and responsive! Recommend it surely.

    A Week in Istanbul

    I stayed in Istanbul for several nights - first with a few friends, and then with my partner. I decided to remain at Ferman Hotel for convenience and was very happy with my decision. I've visited Istanbul before and have stayed in other parts of Sultanahmet, but this was my favorite. A much quieter section, yet easy walking distance to the main sites and with great restaurants and a smaller bazaar nearby (well-priced and shopkeepers that were more personable than the Grand Bazaar). My first room was a street-side room which was just as quiet as my second room (sea-view) when my partner arrived. The hotel doesn't strike me as catering to large groups - it was peaceful the entire time. The rooms were spacious - as were the bathrooms - and kept clean and well stocked. The rooftop patio is lovely with incredible views - and guests are free to access it outside of breakfast hours, making it a great place to have a cup of tea and relax. The hotel shows the slightest sign of wear and tear, to be expected after lower numbers of tourists in recent years. The breakfast buffet has a nice variety, and the coffee and tea options in the hotel lobby and on the patio were an added bonus. The staff are amazing. They provided repeated assistance - calling taxis and translating destinations, taking care of laundry for incredibly reasonable prices, and were available for great recommendations, reviewing the map, assisting with luggage, and so much more. I'd happily stay here again!

    Great location, friendly, great breakfast

    The location of this hotel can't be beat, a really quick walk to the Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia, and access to lots of restaurants and bars, but quiet and personal. The breakfast is one of the best we've had, especially for a boutique hotel like this, and the fact that it is served on the roof with panoramic views of the Bosphorus, the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia makes it even better. Breakfast has various kinds of tea and coffee, juice, eggs, all kinds of turkish cheeses, salads, olives, sauteed veggies, a fresh honeycomb, jellies, cereal, bagels, breads. Though its nice to have a chandieler in the room and the view and sound of the sea was lovely, the rooms are a bit dated. The beds are kind of tough and the pillows a bit lumpy, and the water pressure in the shower could be a bit stronger, but overall for the price, the location, friendly staff and breakfast makes this an excellent choice. We have stayed in other hotels in both Sultanhamet and Beygolu, but decided to return here for last trip, and we would certainly return in the future.
