Historical Traveler Reviews Erguvan Hotel Istanbul
Bloody Brilliant Hotel!!
My boyfriend and I stayed here earlier on this year and we loved it! The rooms were clean, fresh and cosy and the roof terrace....what can i say? Sitting up there with wine, food and blankets wrapped round us and the Blue Mosque as a backdrop was most definatley my idea of relaxation. The location couldnt have been more perfect, within walking distance of everything we wanted to see...the Palace, Grand Bazaar, Haigia Sophia, perfect. The staff also were incredibly friendly and had great fun laughing at our attempts to speak Turkish! We really felt wecome and it really felt like a family there. We're already planning out break there for nxt year, we cant wait to get back!
I just returned last week from Istanbul. Stayed at Erguvan for the whole 5 days. This hotel is nicely located, just a short walk to the touristy places. Whats good is that its not near enough to be noisy and busy. Taxis might have trouble finding this place (intentionally or otherwise :)) but just show the hotel business card (it has a small map on it) and it'll solve that problem.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially this guy named Murat. Whenever I have any question Murat was always ready with the answers and genuinely never look bothered. The room was very clean. Breakfast on the terrace hotel was nice. Even after the room service hours ended and the restaurant was closed, they were ok with my constant craving for coffee at 23.00
Oh and it was also in walking distance from this fantastic restaurant called Balikci Sabahatin.
I totally recomend this hotel. Will definitely stay here again if i ever go to Istanbul again.
The charming Erguvan hotel
Thoroughly Recommended - We stayed at the Erguvan in June 2005 and were more than satisfied with this charming small hotel which is in an excellent location near to the Blue Mosque and all other main sight seeing areas of wonderful Istanbul. The Hotel was exremely clean and very well appointed. Try and reserve a room on the higher floors where you can get wonderful views of the Sea of Marmaret. The hotel staff were extremely polite and very helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and made all the better by having it served on the roof top terrace which again had marvellous views of both the sea and the blue mosque. We would have no hesitation in returning to the Erguvan, we had a very enjoyable stay at a very reasonable price... book it NOW!

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days in June 2005 after having read the recommendations on Trip Advisor. The hotel is clean, the rooms are spacious. Breakfast is served on a terrace from which you can see the Blue Mosque. You can also dine on the terrace or have drinks.
We reserved a "Sea View" room. I imagined that this would therefore be a room looking out over the sea, in fact it just means that you can see the sea from the window, the room actually looks out onto the street. I do not know what view the standard rooms have.
Unlike many reviews here I didn't find the staff friendly at all, especially the female receptionist who acted as if we were disturbing her.
One night there was live music, (international pop/rock music) which is to be avoided.
The hotel is situated in a quiet part of the old town, close to the Blue Mosque.
The prices were as follows:
The Standard Single room: EURO 55 (EURO 50 if paid cash)
The Double Room - with sea view: EURO 80 (EURO 72 if paid cash)
The Standard Double Room: EURO 70 (EURO 63 if paid cash)
The Erguvan Junior Suite Room: EURO 110 (EURO 99 if paid cash)
We had a fabulous time
we had a fabulous time in istanbul and really enjoyed our stay at he erguvan hotel.The staff was fantastic and went out of their way for us.we thank them.
Sweet hotel for a good value
This Hotel is very clean, the staff is friendly, and the room comfortable. The hotel is close to tourist sites but you will have to walk up a steep hill to get to the local restaurants and the tram.
The Erguvan is great. We stayed there in May 2004 and were extremely impressed. The staff were more than helpful and went out of their way to provide extra assistance with onward bookings, bus advice and assistance, luggage storage. The room was good; lots of atmosphere, very comfortable and scrupulously cleaned every day. The location is marvellous; everything at your disposal in short walk; very atmospheric and the view from the breakfast room is gorgeous. Book it and enjoy!
What a wonderful hotel
We stayed at the Erguvan hotel for three nights in October, 2004. The hotel is in an old building, but is clean and new. It has a great location. The rooms were large, and simple, but well decorated. The bathrooms were beautifully tiled. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The breakfest room overlooks the Golden Horn on one side, and the Blue Mosque on the other side. As much as I can rave about the hotel and rooms, the service and staff was even better. One night we choose to stay in and have wine in the rooftop lounge. We got hungry and asked the staff if they could provide us with snacks. Although this is not a service they nornally provide, they not only gave us snacks, but fed us like kings. The staff took the time to teach us some Turkish words, and were helpful in suggesting restaurants (try the Doy Doy restaurant) I just can't say enough good about this place. Our taxi driver had a hard time finding it and took us on a tour of the city on the way. He tried to charge us for this unrequested, but fun tour, but the hotel made sure that he got what the fare would have been if he had taken us there directly. Make sure you get directions to the hotel for your taxi driver.
Erguvan Hotel highly recomended
We stayed at the Erguvan Hotel 8-15 Sep 04. We did not see any Hype in the write ups about the hotel. Good location - about 3-4 blocks from heart of major sights. Staff and service was excelent. The Manager repaired a broken luggage handle for us upon arrival. They arranged all excursions that we wanted. They provided good restaurant recomendations when requested. The room size was adequate, bright and cherry, everything was very clean. Breakfast on their roof top terrace overlooked the Miramar Sea and had a good view of the Blue Mosque. We would use them again and would highly recommed them.
Thank you letting us stay at your hotel. The service and staff excellent and very friendly. I hope to come again in the future

Arrived to heavy rain and very steamy temps. Peak hour traffic meant a 40 minute trip took about 60 but good views of the water, old town wall, fish market etc etc. public parks around the airport beautifully looked after with very simple plantings but in imaginative waves.
