Historical Traveller Reviews of Erguvan Hotel
loved istanbulfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I would highly recommended it for a few reasons. First The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, as I had lost my wallet before I left the UK and they helped sort me out. The rooms were clean warm and cleaned daily. They had a wonderful breakfeast (with real coffee) on the roof terrace with wonderful views of the bosphores and Blue mosque. there were lots of fresh rolls, turkish tea meats fruit,youghrts all in a very nice setting. It is bang in the centre of the Old City a stones throw from the Blue Mosque, topaki palace Haggia sophia etc, So I would highly reccommend this hotel if you want to be submurged in th Old istanbul.
Quiet and family hotel...from macavigo
I was a bit worried about the noise, so I asked for a quiet room, I we got it!!! Not very near the stairs neither the lift...
Although the decoration is not awesome, it's very nice, and it makes you feel like at home.
Room was very clean (and warm... considering that the week we were in Istambul it rained all days, and also snowed!!!).
Breakfast is good, of course it's not a 5 star big hotel buffet, but it was enough for us. It was a turkish breakfast: tomate, olives, bread, cakes, cheese....
Staff was nice, but I have to say, not as nice and helpful like the staff of Dersaadet. Don't forget (if you pay in cash) for your discount... (they seem to forget their offer sometimes...).
We loved to arrive in the evening after having dinner, and chat a bit with the other guests (we met some guys from Sri Lanka making a university project!!!).
The truth is, that I would consider to repeat Erguvan again. The price was great (54 Eur per night paying in cash!!!) and the situation is really good (three minutes from everything...).

Above Averagefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location was pretty good. From the rooftop terrace, we had views of the Mamara Sea and the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Museum, Aghia Sofia were all within walking distance. Like an earlier reviewer (whose reviews we read), we would be happy to stay there again if we are unable to find something better.
Very good hotel, great locationfrom Rusky
The only thing that I think could be improved with this hotel is the breakfast, which is included in the price, as it was the same everyday without exception. Only one type of cereal, one type of bread and only one type of fruit (although that did vary from watermelon-grapes). There were other things like eggs, cake, yogurt but..... It really wouldn't cost much for this to be improved. Fruit is cheap I think ,and it would be nice to have a fruit platter, or even a basket of different fruit.
All in all, I would stay at this hotel again. It was good value for money - but why do Istanbul hotels all charge in euros when they aren't part of the EU yet??
OK but nothing special. You can do better.from fraisse10
We had pre-booked (and had confirmed) a baby's cot. We got there: no cot; they have two cots but one was broken and the other had been given to another guest who had turned up with a baby but who had not pre-requested a cot. Had they gone out and bought or borrowed another one? No they had not. We were brought a put-you-up folding bed that would cripple anyone who slept on it and given the vague promise of trying to borrow one tomorrow (the baby slept in one of our beds in the end).
The rooms stank of previous users' tobacco smoke and we had to leave the windows open for hours for it to clear. A broken soap-rack was reported but not repaired. Above all, the place is NOISY, not so much from the road (though it's not quiet) but from the open marble staircase and landings. Every high-heel and door closed from every room on every floor will sound like it is happening right next to you. Oh, and the minivan driver to and from the airport is trying for a career in Formula One. Dangerous.
Breakfast is fine, roof terrace is nice; free internet is good; safe-deposit boxes are helpful. They'll look after your luggage after you check-out. The place is clean (smoke-smell apart). But there are better places for similar money in Sultanhamet. Stay in them.

Top Local Tips for Istanbul
Airport Fare If you are taking a taxi from the airport to the city centre, it should not cost you more than 40YTL (2008) each way. Taxis are plentiful. There is no need to pre-book or pay any extra.
Tram to Dolmabahce Palace You can get to Domabahce Palace very easily by just taking the sultanhamet tram to the end of the line . It only costs one token and then you cross the street and turn left and in 7 minutes you are at the most wonderfully decorated palace in Istanbul
mrs my tip is,? can reccomend for erguvan hotel..they can put more sign for taxi driver :)
