Excellent authentic Hotel with very friendly staff

Incredibly well situated hotel with the most helpful staff. Egan helped me with my entire itinerary in Istanbul including pick up and drop off at the airport as well as a private tour of Istanbul and dinner recommendations. When we come back to Istanbul we will definitely stay here again.

Ridiculous value!

Pros: Staff, staff, location, location. For small room, great use of space.
Cons: Bed was as hard as a rock, but I slept well.
Location: Many reviews say in the "heart" of things, this really is.
Hotel is right in the heart of Istanbul's historic district - stone's throw from Hagia Sophia and the Palace. The room is small but very well done - cozy, not cramped (bed rather stiff). All staff was helpful, but during my stay in early December 2015, the concierge/bell boy/breakfast helper/room cleaner was exceptionally good (sorry, I'm horrible with names). Reflected well on hotel and the City. Breakfast upstairs was exceptional with a stunning view. At 32 euros a night, I thought I'd sell my house and move there. Even if you read this at double the price, still well worth it!

Feb 2, 2016 by Esans hotel team

Dear Our Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback. Each feedback is very important for us. We are happy to hear that you liked Istanbul and our Hotel. Rather than touristic activity, we try our best to reflect the real Turkish hospitality and culture. December is low season. So the room prices are much lower comparing to Seasonal period April-November in December. However we try also best to make competitive prices for our valuable guests. Thank you. You are very welcome to move to our Hotel from your Home. Best Regards Esans Hotel Team

A non forgettable stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This Hotel impressed us really. The staff goes all out to assist you and to make your stay feel like home. You are always offered coffee tea during walking around Istanbul. We stayed over New Year's and they worked very hard to find us a restaurant.The location is very central to Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace, but also the tram stop which can take you across the Golden Horn to Beyoglu. The rooms were clean and quiet. I loved the Turkish flavour to the rooms with the paintings and glass mosaic lamps (romantic). We stayed four days so that it started to feel like home. I believe we were a bit sad to leave when we departed. There are many others on nearby streets but this just had that extra personal touch. Highly recommending.
