Location and security
I was asked to pay in cash when I left when I had previously aranged to pay by credit card. Since I did not have the cash on hand, I left with my credit card information provided. Note, this was by the night staff.
Location, neatness, excellent service
Room was not well insulated from noise of other rooms
Central location to all the sights and good eating and shopping areas. Rooms were very comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful
It was a nice hotel with friendly staff. Some rooms had great views. Location was very good for all local attractions and could easily walk everywhere! Good breakfast spread.
Goldfish in very small bowl!
Location was good. Apart from the fact that you have to walk up a steep slope to reach sultanahmet square and restaurants, the location was fine. The tram station was a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Grand bazaar, cemberlitas hammam, blue mosque, hippodrome and topkapi palace were all at a walking distance from the hotel. There are a good amount of restaurants around to eat at. The terrace where the breakfast was served had a nice view and hotel staff were nice and pleasant.
We stayed at erguvan for 7 nights. The complimentary breakfast each day was exactly the same with no variation. The room had a slight sewage smell each time you entered it. No coffee making facilities in the room. The hotel is in my opinion is not a 4 star but a 3 star.
Close proximity to Sultanahmet, the staff's friendliness, fast and free wi-fi.
Breakfast was mediocre. Lower floor rooms facing the street are noisy.
Loction wise,this is a very good place to stay.Located at walking distance to many important historical places & eating places, very convenient Staff was friendly & the breakfast was very good.Rooms were were smaller but since we planned all day tours,it didnt matter much. Would like to stay here again
We spent three pleasant nights at the Erguvan during our trip to Istanbul. It was a great base from which to see all the sights of the old city of Istanbul- easy access in the morning allowed us to beat lots of crowds. The rooms were comfortable, clean and cute. Breakfast each day was excellent. The staff was accommodating and helpful in providing directions and arranging transportation.
Staff friendly and efficient. Rooms very nice.
Shower. Tended to change temperature during use
The second time ostanalivayus at the hotel, I like it, come again. Comfortable and beautiful terrace. I recommend
The staff was very helpful and gave us a lot of information. For example, they sent us to a bath that was great, and recommended a nearby nargile bar that my friend and I really liked.
We misunderstood (or were misled) about the conditions for the airport shuttle. We stayed 3 nights and still had to pay for the cab to the airport. They originally asked us to pay 40 tl but on our way there, we only paid 30 tl. The concierge chraged us the lower rate, but we were the ones who insisted.
Great location, pleasant although very small, room with very good staff.
The room was very small and somewhat noisy
I love Istanbul; I love Turks. I was in Turkey in the Peace Corps many years ago and I can't go back often enough. The hotel is so friendly and authentic. My room looked out at the Blue Mosque.
The location Transport to and from the airport Breakfast Sea view Wireless internet
Narrow and uncomfortable bed Restaurant food Small Room Expensive buffet in the room
Уютный небольшой отель. Очень приятное оформление. Расположен в пяти минутах ходьбы до Голубой мечети, Айя София. Там же - остановка трамвая. В номере прибирались каждый день. Есть мини-бар, сейф (бесплатный), телевизор, фен. По всему отелю доступен бесплатный интернет. Завтраки без излишеств, но все, что нужно, есть.
Основной недостаток, как и во всех подобных отелях, -плохая шумоизоляция номеров. Но, мы весь день бегали по городу,поэтому больших неудобств это нам не причиняло.
