Took the tram to Tophane in search of Turkish delight and pastries - Ahmet had told us that Gulluoglu and Koska were the best in our part of town. He wasn't wrong. We shared a mixed plate of pastries with our Turkish coffees at Gulluoglu. It was divine. Then picked up some Turkish Delight and more pastries from Koska (2 doors away).

We …

Although there may have been a plan to rise early and beat the crowds, it didn't happen. Instead, it was a lazy morning followed by a late breakfast. We didn't head out till nearly lunchtime.

Then the earthquake hit. Seriously, there was an earthquake. see Euronews -

Hitting the shops

We met Pam and David at their hotel lobby at 0930. Chris and David were going to take a ferry across to Prince's Island for the day whilst Pam and I hit the shops.

A great time was spent wandering around jewellery and carpet stores in and around the Grand Bazaar. Saw (and learned about) meerschaum pipes and …

Another beautiful morning. There hasn't been a bad one in Turkey or for that matter, any part of our trip.

Breakfast was on the terrace as usual. It dawned on me that we were having breakfast in Europe but were looking over the marine passage to another continent "Asia". The other place that we experienced this was Tangier. There couldn't …

'Island hopping' is often done but it's not often one 'continent' hops - and it's quite a surreal to be able to do that (twice in the last 24 hours!).

Cappadocia is on the Asian side of Turkey but where we are now in Istanbul (Sultanahmet) is on the European side. Istanbul is an exciting, captivating city, especially so as it is here that …

    Great location on a relatively quiet street but also very close to the major attractions of Istanbul such as Agia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Tokapi Palace, Mosaic Museum, Arasta Bazaar and Basilica Cistern. Buffet breakfast on the terrace provides good views of the Bosphorus. The staff are generallly helpful. The rooms are clean. The furnishing and decorations are dated and floral.

    We had a fantastic stay, however, we had just arrived from a month in India so anything would have been fantastic.

    The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast was great. I've seen some reviews complain that breakfast was in a different building, but with such a beautiful streetscape and stunning views from the rooftop, what's to complain about?

    Historical Traveler Reviews Angel's Home Hotel Istanbul

    Friendly Service at the Angel's Home


    We have just spent a weekend in Istanbul, Turkey and would like to share our experiences with other would-be travellers. Having never been to Istanbul before, we didn't know where to begin but we needn't have worried.

    Home from home.


    I want to go back.We loved it

    Small hotel -

    Terrific location for seeing all of old Istanbul on foot.

    Amazing brothers who run it and if you

    Need advice or help with gaps in your plans,

    Be it on water or in Turkish steam

    U need

    Look no further!

    P.S. Meeting the Grand Bazaar backgammon (uncrowned)

    champion was a definite plus.

    Regards to all from Carl & Christine.

    Great Value for money


    We have been to Istanbul twice before and this was most certainly the best hotel we had stayed at.

    It's location was excellent, within walking distance of most of the major sites, very important in Istanbul as a lot easier and cheaper walking than a Taxi or other forms of transport, although transport in Istanbul is very cheap anyway.

    Our room was always clean and tidy and had most of the facilities required with a friendly staff who were always helpful, typical of the Turkish of course.

    If as I am sure we will return to Istanbul we would have no hesitation in staying once again in this hotel.

    I have to say it is a great city to visit and one can definitely shop until one drops.

    Very good hotel


    me and a friend stayed at Angel's home from 23 to 30 March. The room (131) was really lovely with two extremely comfortable beds (one big enough for two people) , overlooking the very quiet street and with seagulls on the roof opposite the hotel. We loved the location and the room was spotlessly clean. We appreciated the tea making facilities, the white slippers with the hotel logo and the view from the terrace.

    A Great Place!


    Have just returned from a 6 night stay at the Angel's Home from 24th to 30th March 2005. Booked on recommendations of Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Everything written before was true. We had booked Hakkan & his 1950's Chevrolet to pick us up from the airport, & even though we were very late ( because we didn't know that we had to queue to buy a £10 visa each, before we queued for immigration!) Hakkan was very cheerful. Our room - 214, was on the 1st floor and was spacious and clean. The bathroom, tiled from floor to ceiling was lovely with a powerful shower and unlimited hot water at anytime. The double bed was actually 2 singles pushed together with 2 single duvets and a bedspread. Might not suit honeymooners but was fine for us. The mini bar was great for keeping our bottle of water cold too. The only minor niggles about the room, would be - another waste bin would be useful in the main room & who decided that the pegs for hanging bathrobes etc, were situated over the toilet roll? Mush better to have a peg/hook on the back of the bathroom door!

    BEWARE ROOM 129!


    The Angels Home Hotel is a charming, individual hotel in an excellent location, and energetically run by two English-speaking brothers. The welcome ,entrance lobby and the junior staff were great, very helpful. Our only gripe, and there was absolutely nothing that could be done about it as the hotel was full in the busy pre-Easter holiday period, was the size of our room. Situated next door to the original hotel, it held a double bed, two bedside cupboards, a wardrobe and a small cupboard, and was cramped at that! No a/c, thin walls through which you could hear next door's use of the bathroom..very strong colours, all rather opressive. But spotlessly clean, and very efficient bathroom. We christened the room "The Cupboard"for obvious reasons, and felt it let the rest of this really quite charming hotel down.

    Excellent hotel, nice and helpful owners


    We enyojed on our 4 day trip at Istanbul:

    - the nice stay at this lovely angels home hotel

    - the great view from the terasse on the top

    - the excellent service

    - the helpfull brothers and the whole employee

    - the unique drive with the wonderfull oldtimer with his owner hakan

    Wonderful stay in Istanbul!!


    The staffs were all kind. We traveled with a small child of 15 months and the facilities were well adapted and the people really took care of us. One of the owners may seem to be a little bit too much talkative and comemrcial, but it seemed at the end they did so with hospitality. Having seen other touristic places were not always well orgniased, it was okay at that hotel.

    The views from the terrace where you can have your breakfast, drinks were fantastic and the hotel is well located. The clean bathroom and comfortable beds. If you travel as a young couple, it may be a bit expensive, but as a family, we enjoyed the stay at hotel.
