Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Beyaz Saray Istanbul
Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis
Ich kann das Hotel nur empfehlen. Ich habe es über die Barcelo-Homepage gebucht und zahlte 69€ pro Nacht/Zimmer inkl. Frühstück und Abholung am Airport. Das Hotel ist sehr sauber und modern eingereichtet. Das Restaurant im 4. Stock hat einen Wunderschönen Ausblick auf die Altstadt. Die Zimmer sind zwar etwas klein, aber sehr geschmackvoll ausgestattet. Das Badezimmer hat eine sehr große Dusche. Im Wellnessbereich findet man ein Hamam, eine Finnsauna und Dampfbad, alles sehr sauber. Wilreless LAN ist im ganzen Haus selbstverständlich, und wer sein Noteboock zu Hause gelassen hat, kann sich an 3 Workstations bedienen. Unmittelbar vor dem Hotel hält die Tram, die Richtung Altstadt fährt. Ich konnte eigentlich nichts beanstanden und war mit meinem Aufenthalt sehr zufrieden.
Awsome little find!
We stayed at the Beyaz Saray for a long weekend. After seeing no reviews on it anywhere we were initially apprehensive but as we'd found such a fab weekend package we decided to take the risk and go for it.
In summary, it was awesome. The hotel is absolutely beautiful - a gorgeous little boutique hotel in a great location. (We walked almost everywhere in often less than ten minutes and were two minutes from Grand Bazaar).
The hotel has been gorgeously designed - lots of lovely, hand-crafted wooden furniture, cream walls, splashes of red, fresh flowers and the smell of incense wafting through the lobby. In London this hotel would be super trendy and super pricey. We didn't get time to use the spa, but it's immaculately clean and would have made a great two hour break from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul.
Rooms are a little on the small side but perfectly formed. The only downside is that our room was on the inside of the hotel and ventilation was a bit of a problem - the air conditioning was quite weak and so the room became mightily stuffy. I'd imagine the hotel has resolved this by now and that it was just an initial teething problem. I'd ask to have a room facing the mosque - the view is incredible and you'll have better ventilation. Plus there is some noise from the escalator and as we were on a high floor, voices below were amplified somewhat but it wasn't too bad.
Service in the hotel is great - I'm not sure where the hotel markets itself, but the guests were from a variety of countries (particularly Japan and Germany). The hotel is lovely and quiet at night so you're assured a peaceful sleep. Rooms are perfectly clean.
There are a plethora of excellent restaurants nearby. A tip would be to buy the guide book "HG2 Istanbul (otherwise known as a Hedonists Guide to Istanbul). It has some really great restaurant recommendations inside - many are easily reached on foot. For the other slightly further away ones, just ask the concierge to book you a table and flag you a cab. Taxis are really inexpensive and easy to find.
We had lunch at the hotel on the day of checkout. It was very well priced and portions were enormous.
Would we stay again? Absolutely.
Nice surprise, above my expectations
I used the tripadvisor to select the hotel and booked over the internet trough the Barcelo group. They picked me up at the airport. The reception was very efficient, the location is fabulous. The rooms were recently refreshed and we had a huge bathroom. The sauna and bath facilities were very relaxing. It is a price - comfort winner. I warmly recommend.
Good Hotel -but rooms too warm in winter!
This is actually a good, clean 4 star hotel with modern decor. The hotel lobby/entrance is of a high standard, and hotel itself is near the main tourist attractions and local tram stop (Beyazit) which is an advantage. Whilst rooms themselves were a tad small and felt more 3 star rather than 4 star, they did have a modern look to them. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of items, though the quality was nothing exceptional.
Unfortunately, what spoiled the experience was the fact that the hotel airconditioning is switched off for the winter months -and this meant our hotel room was unbearably WARM and uncomfortable to sleep in! When I complained to hotel reception, they were apologetic but said there was nothing they could do as it was a central system.
Bien Situado y Bastante Decente
Me he quedado en este hotel durante 4 noches en mi estancia en Estambul . Puedo decir tres cosas de este hotel que a mi entender resumen lo que otros viajeros quieren saber antes de alojarse .
1.Situación : La situación sinceramente es inmejorable , a 25 metros del Gran Bazarr y a dos pasos de las mezquitas , cisterna hipodromo etc . Varios restaurantes alrededor .
2.Comodidad : El hotel y las habitaciones están bastante bien , lo unico que no me gustó demasiado es el tamaño de las mismas , son un poco pequeñas . Las comidas en el hotel son excelentes y lo mejor de todo los recepcionistan hablan español con fluidez al ser de la cadena Barceló.
3.Precio : No es excesivamente caro , tanto si reservan solo la habitacion como si eligen estancia en este hotel en un tour programado.
Resumiendo ; perfecto para visitar la parte Histórica de Estambul.
Good location.. but unbearably hot rooms in Winter!
This hotel is in a great location - near all the key tourist attractions, and within easy travelling distance of all the key sights and sounds of Istanbul. The rooms are small but modern.. and the general level of cleanliness was good. The major problem with this hotel is that in winter they apparently turn off the in-room airconditioning systems... and its unbearably hot and muggy in the rooms. I am someone who likes warmth - but this was ridiculous! The hotel informed us there was nothing they could do because they centrally control their airconditioning in Winter! We obviously weren't alone for when we looked out of our windows 3/4 of guests also had to open their window to get some form of air , but given the windows open out in to a closed atrium it didnt provide much solace. Inability to sleep at night and significant discomfort detracted from what otherwise would have been a great hotel. Free wifi was also useful.
Boutique Hotel in great location
Rooms are small, but new/clean with funky designs. Breakfast is served in the restuarant on the top floor with a great view of the mosques. Best thing about the hotel is the fantastic location. SIutuated in the old city, it is opposite the Grand Bazaar and just 10 mins walk away from the main tourist sites like blue mosque, aya sophia
This was a great find for us...
El hotel esta perfectamente situado a pocos metros de el Gran Bazar.
Se trata de un hotel nuevo, muy moderno y con habitaciones pequeñas pero muy comodas.
El baño es muy moderno y funcional. Muy parecido a lo que podemos encontrar en cualquier hotel de la cadena AC en España.
Tiene un bonito salón de desayunos en la ultima planta.
He estado varias veces en Estambul y realmente lo recomiendo. Magnifica relacion calidad-precio.

Antakya or Hayat (almost every town in Turkey has two names and they both are recognized by the people) was the site of the Biblical Antioch where St. Peter visited and later wrote a letter back to some people he met there. We arrived last night about 10 PM. We will stay here one more night and then cross …
... I hope it was) The interior was really beautiful, and I quite like those patterns made by mosaic. I also like the dome shaped roof, looking from the inside, the light when through the small windows, lighten up the colourful mosaic, also matching with the patterns on the wall and on the floor, it was quite a view.
After that, I rushed to my final stop: Topkapi Palace, which is my most look forward one, cos the photos on websites were so beautiful. And it didn't let ...
... First stop this afternoon was in the old town - the Basilica Cistern - underground water supply system with amazing mix of Roman architecture including two heads of Medusa. Fascinating. Then on to the Church of St Sophia. Interesting to read the history of the building in its changing styles - the building has variously been used as a church by both the catholic and orthodox churches as well ...

Corey sat on my lap with my beer in my lap and spilled all over me. Someone kissed me.. Who? Yoseph lost his paper with everyone's bill on it. Paco bought someone a bottle of wine.

... helpful, and welcoming. A nice Sunday drive to the airport, on another beautiful day in Turkey. We have really been blessed with the weather. I'm lapping it up in shorts and things while I can. Checked in on our Olympic Airlines flight to Santorini via a 4 hour stop to Athens. Too ezy hey??? First hurdle catch a taxi to our hotel tourist price of course. Knock on the reception door..... no one home, WTF! knocked on every door.... Yep, no one ...
