Wonderful Boutique hotel in Sulatanahmet

Posted Aug 10, 2014
When we booked this hotel we could not understand what kind of hotel we were going to since the hotel rating on Expedia are based on reviews only. The Turkish tourism industry calls it "special class" which i could not equate to the star system I am used to. I am glad the reviewers were correct. While it doesn't have the exercise room, pool or an business office like in a Five / four star hotel in the states; you have to understand that you are choosing to live in Sultanahmet; a town thousands of years old. Location allows you to live amongst historical treasures and still enjoy excellent amenities. You can take a short walk to Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and Blue mosque. Shopping is all around you. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The bathroom were clean and renovated. The whole building has excellent decor. The rooms have good air conditioning are sound proofed well. Above all the hotel staff are courteous, prompt and always trying to help. The terrace restaurant has amazing views of the sea and the blue mosque. They serve an excellent free breakfast. The wifi is free and good enough to support wifi calling. We would like to thank the manager Mr. Gulkhan and concierge Murat for taking the extra effort to make our trip to Istanbul memorable. We hope to go back soon.

Great Location, Fabulous Staff

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Location, Roof Terrace and Staff
Cons: Room decor, water pressure in the shower. Would be nice to have a gym and Turkish bath/spa.
Location: Fantastic location near The Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia and Topkapi Palace.
The hotel is in a great location near the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia. The hotel has a lovely roof terrace for drinks and breakfast with a great view. The staff are exceptional - very friendly, very kind, always wanting to please. The rooms are rather basic but very clean.

I will comeback once and once again. Classy place that used to be a palace. very nice stay. many thanks to all of them.

What a location

Posted Feb 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
From the moment we walk in the hotel the service was excellent. The receptionist took the time to explain the 'house rules', offered information on things to do and see in Istanbul. The room, although not huge, it was reasonable sized, very clean. The single beds were very comfortable, heating was adjustable. Every day free bottled water and Turkish delight were provided... We had a street view room and even with roadworks going on it was still quite. The bathroom was big, with spa bath! The location couldn't be better - the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia, Topkapi Palace were all within walking distance (less than 10 minutes). A number of good restaurants are nearby, and Istanbul's one of shopping strips not too far away (including the Bazaar and the Spice Market).

I had a very nice stay.

Posted Nov 2, 2013
Pros: I liked the bathroom
Cons: Less noise from workmen outside.
Location: location was perfect.
I had a nice stay but there was a lot of loud noise from building work out side, also I could here other people in the next room to myself. The bathroom was very nice and the room was cleaned well every day. I did ask in by email for a double bed/room and was given two single beds which was disappointing . But in all I though the stay was nice, Many Thanks

So convenient for the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace

Posted Oct 20, 2013
Pros: The hotel well appointed. It's main asset though is its staff - the room cleaners, dining room waitresses, porters & reception staff were excellent
Cons: The breakfasts were very good but the one evening meal we had in the hotel was disappointing.
Location: Perfect position for "tourist" Istanbul. Main attractions within walking distance & not far from Sultanahmet tram stop. Arastas bazaar nearby.
Clean, efficient and excellent staff,with good English. Unfortunately my sister (one of our party) had to return to the UK on the tragic and untimely death of her son on October 16th. The arrangements for her to return as quickly as possible to the UK, when we were all in shock, was made possible by the help of one of the reception staff -Efe. His calmness and attention to detail in the travel agency, he took us to, enabled us to make the right decisions, in time for my sister to get the next available flight to Heathrow, on Turkish Airways. As we feel Efe (I'm sorry I do not have his surname) was so kind, helpful and concerned we would like Expedia to contact the Eresin Crown Hotel management to inform them of his exemplary service. We hope it will be possible for our personal thanks to be passed on to the gentleman himself.
