This will be a very sweet review of Berk Guest House. I wanted a comfortable moderately-priced hotel for a smooth entry into Istanbul after the long journey from San Francisco. Berk Guest House turned out to be a jet-lagged traveler's dream. It is comfortable, clean, well-managed, and safe. (There was a safe in my room but after a couple of...

We stayed for 4 nights in room #42 which is a premium room and costs a bit more-but had a great view of the Bosphorus & at night of city lights. Very helpful caring owners and staff. We would stay there again!!

Great Location in the Old Town Istanbul where several thousands of years of cultures lived prior to your arrival. Owner Yeşim is fluent in English and is a most graceful host. The cost is so low (in comparison to Four Seasons next door:$800./night) you'll have enough money left to shop all they at the Grand Bazaar which only 15 minutes...

This has been the third time we have stayed at the Berk Guest House and it really is the perfect place to stay in Istanbul. The location could not be better. The hosts Yesim and Ahmed were so helpful and friendly and Merisa on the desk couldn't do enough for us. Delicious breakfast too! We totally recommend this guest house.....

The staff are very friendly..Merisa in particular. Lovely person. Breakfast was ok. As for the room, it seems to be the luck of the draw in terms of size. My main gripe was the noise at night both at the front and back.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
