Misafir Suites 8 Istanbul
Travel Blogs from Istanbul
The weather forecast rain all day today. Fortunately it only trickled a bit of rain in the late afternoon for a short hour. But we were planning to relax and just walk up and down Istiltak Street and lounge around the hostel.
Lunch was across the street at a kebab place. We both had chicken shish kebab. I thought it was made quite well and it came with a dipping chili sauce and type of flat bread. It was a ...

Dave was already in Istanbul for four days. Once I got to the gate at DeGaulle, I found out that my 3:30 flight was delayed for 1 hour. I was able to email Dave on my 15 minutes of free wifi ...
... fresh juice each, one pomegranate and one orange, which were extremely pulpy and kind of bitter, then got on the tram back to Sultanahmet. We walked back to our hostel, and, very over it, sat on the terrace and shared a bag of chips before going for a lie down. When we woke up we had a chat to a couple of Americans from our room, Dan and Mindy, who were just about to head out to a tea and hookah bar and invited us along with them. So we walked up the street and they took ...

We watched and soaked in the atmosphere for a few minutes before heading home. After about 20 minutes of walking, we realized we had made a mistake and were NOT where we had been when we got on the ferry earlier today...we were much further northeast than we thought...we hopped in a cab home. I have heard many stories about cabbies taking foreigners for ...
... us but warned us it was far to Kadıköy. At that point, we hadn't noticed we were at Karaköy and not Kadıköy where we should have gone if we wanted the big Carrefour. But the driver seemed honest so we let him show us a small Carrefour (Express) before taking us to the nearby Cevahir Mall, the biggest in mall in Turkey. The closest thing to an outdoor shop at Cevahir Mall is the Columbia store, nice clothes ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Misafir Suites 8 Istanbul
I have stayed in MiSafir Suites twice in past couple of months and booked me for my next trip to Istanbul as well.
When you book hotel you never know what you are in for because the pictures are always deceiving and so are the rates. And for me the hotel is very important so i research a lot before choosing. But Misafirsuites have exceded all my expectations.
When you visit istanbul you will most certainly visit Istiklal Cadde which is the most energetic and beautiful avenue of the city. The hotel is one street below to istiklal cad. When you get in your room you are isolated from all the hip of outside and just melting in your comfy beds. The rooms are incredible, they are huge and very very nicely decorated, spotless marble bathrooms, actually our room was quite like little house. The service is great because it is a little hotel (they call it suites hotel) so they are always running to your every little need.They have a good collection of dvds and cds,good international channels on tv and many more. The breakfast which is served to your room every morning with great attention is delicious. We found the hotel thanks to another review on tripadvisor and we are so thankfull, because we travel a lot for business or leisure purposes in all kind of 5 star hotels and this is the first time that we had more than we expected. Plus they have good prices. you can find some photos above
We went to turkey for a 1 week vacation with my husband.A friend of ours recommended this hotel and we decided to go with it.We were supposed to stay in Istanbul for 4 days and than travel to Bodrum.But we fell in love with this beautifull and crazy city and decided to stay and MisafirSuites had a huge part in that decision.We travel a lot with my wife and we have never experienced this kind of pleasure of being a really guest in a hotel.Everything has gone smoothly and pleasently.It is kind of a boutique hotel with 6 rooms and they take personal care of every person.Our room was really huge,modern and stylishly decorated with everything you could need*couchs,dvd player,stereo etc..It is located in beyoglu which is the place to be in istanbul,with shops,restaurants,clubs.The staff is helpfull and is generally happy to be able to offer any kind of service.The roomservice is so rich and fast.The rates are much lower and moderated when you compare it to any 5 star hotel and it is worth it.We had 1 of the best weeks ever with my husband and we will definitly go back.
After countless days of internet research in order to plan my 2 night pre-cruise stay, I came across a review of this hotel on tripadvisor.com. I viewed their website ( ---), liked what I saw and contacted the hotel by phone. That's when I became convinced that this would be where I wanted to be. I spoke with the exceptionally amiable owner of this beautiful boutique hotel, Joost Rooijmans (he's originally from Holland), who has lived in Istanbul with his Turkish wife for the last 10 years. Together they did an exquisite job of renovating this old building into a "Wallpaper Magazine" worthy hotel. The rooms are decadently spacious, richly appointed, and have gorgeous bathrooms, and it's all new, new, new (they just opened 3 months ago!). I appreciated the little touches like the "l'Occitane en Provence" bath products (really good and $ stuff!), the available DVD collection available at the reception, and the intimacy of being a guest in a hotel (or inn) of only 6 rooms. Most of all, it was the owner Joost himself who made all the difference! He went out of his way to make sure that we had a wonderful stay. How many hotel owners do you know that will personally walk you to nearby shops or restaurants? Believe it or not, he even ordered for us at a FABULOUS restaurant down the street called "Haci Abdullah" (---). We enjoyed it so much we ate there twice. Speaking of food, a typical Turkish breakfast is not what Westerner's are used to, but the breakfast served at the Misafir was fresh, different and enjoyable. Tomatoes, olives, bread, bagels, feta cheese, honey, jam, and fresh squeezed orange juice. The location of the hotel was very central in the active Beyoglu district. Overall, a very enjoyable experience offering very good value compared with other high end hotels.
Fabulous Hotel, Perfect Location
Just got back from a 4 days vacation from this lovely and warm boutique hotel.They have grandiose rooms which are very modern and have everything you need in it(tv,dvd player)including good food that you cant find in the poor minibars.I mean we had the push ourselves out of the room every day.You leave the hotel and you are at the heart of istanbul,bars,cinemas,shops everything is so close.A very nice and helpfull staff.They serve a very big plate of turkish breakfast to your room every morning"delicious" and the prices are reasonable.I will definitly go back.
In the Heart Of Istanbul,Excellent and Beautiful(but not expensive)
I went to misafirsuites via my travel who recommended it to me and i checked out there website.The prices where reasonable compared to other hotel prices in istanbul so we decided to try it.Well in return i got so much more than a hotel could offer.I could say so many good things about it but the thing that i liked the most was the fact that even thought its in the center of istanbul(beyoglu) a very chaotic place when you get in your gigantic room its like your at home,you melt in there huge beds.
Delightful for istanbul lovers and first comers too
i have been in istanbul many times because i adore the city and this time i went with my family for a turkish friends wedding and i was tired of 5 star hotels so when a friend of mine recommended this more cozy like a boutique hotel place i accepted(not to forget much better prices) .Well i wasnt at all disappointed.Its in center of the city like your are in the middle of all the hype.Huge rooms and they are chic end comfortable,excellent stuff much more food than in the mini bars that we are all tired of ,DVD player and hundred of DVDs,channels in all languages.
Well what i liked the most were the rooms its like home way from home and the owners are so sweet they make sure that you have all you need,you can see pictures on (-)
Have safe trip
I do travel a lot to istanbul for business but this time i went with my husband for a 1 week trip.Our travel agent suggested this suites instead of 5 star hotels.The fees were much better than the hotels so we accepted thinking that we have giving up comfort.But those suites were much more enjoyable than any 5 star hotels that i stayed in istanbul.To begin with they have huge(could be bigger than your house)fully equipped rooms.In the room that we stayed in 5 people could easily be accomodated(attention young travellers).The service is always smiling and willing to realise any of your requests.They have hundreds of DVDs at your disposal(free).The tv's have channels in all languages.Plus the rooms are very very tasty,classy(apparently the owners have decorated themselves)and clean.
Misafir Suites,EXCELLENT,like a hotel but with bigger rooms and better prices
We are in istanbul for my husbands affairs and this is our second week.We our bound to leave tomorrow but i should tell you that our stay had been nothing but a joy in this beautifully chaotic city and specialy in this magnificient boutique hotel.They have large rooms,an always helpfull service,a great location in the center of the city(taksim),good prices and houndrads of dvd's just for you.You can check them out at [--]. Wish you a pleasant stay,Bye.
