,One of the best hotels in Istanbul, very good service,.. hotel is owned by a friendly family .. everything is clean and well organized ,, the area is calm and people are nice .. I would highly recommend it and definetly revisit.
Our balconed room was clean, bed was confortable, there was a table and a little fridge and our private tidy bathroom had a large shower! Next our room there was a common kitchen full equipped (microwave, sink, dishes,cutlery,pots,cookers) comfortable to use if you can't stand the turkish food or if you just want to save money! The owner, Rasim, is a special and helpful person who suggested us for anything: mosques and palace to visit, where to eat delicious turkish and healthy cuisine and where having fun! He also arranged a taxi both when we arrived and left istanbul and was also where kind printing our check in on line for the flight! In a few words: we enjoyed istanbul feeling at home!!! Loving greatings to Rasim, from Biagio and Rosalba!!!
At first sight seems difficult to reach but you can take as reference point the bus stop balat or the near balat hospital! Many and frequent buses take you from the near bus stop to the city center!
Location and free wifi
We were family: parents and two daugthers. We loved everything: situatuion, preis, attitude of owner to his guests. Best wishes to Rasim
amazing like it
Good location to start exploring the city in various directions, the room with the balcony has a very nice view and is perfect if you do not expect too much comfort. The room has a fridge and the kitchen on the floor can be used if needed. Rasim (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. A bit difficult to find, however as stated in the previous comments the taxi driver made a call, make sure to take the number with you.
The owner was nice and helpful Full security Car parked right outside and had security camera on it all night I'd stay here again
The area at first was a bit concerning but the accomadation was very nice .the local shops were apart of the charm. A little difficult to find
we had the room with the balcony, very nice staff, a feeling of an apartment more than a room, because of the kitchen available in the hall, nice location quite near to the Old Town, 20 minutes by walking. very lively nice neigbourhood, feeling of living among the ordinary people, many little shops and cheap restaurants, a poor area, for people not afraid of many cars, cats and locals hanging around everywhere, for us it was perfect to experience that sort of thing, very simple room but cosy
only a blanket with no bedsheet on it, a simple room
Very good and helpful service. Staff was very friendly and helped us at any time (during the night, very early in the morning). This was a very outstanding service. Staff can also organise a cheap taxi to the airport and negotiate good prices. We received tea and cookies. Staff also waits for you if you arrive very late at night (but you have to let them know). The room was very clean and offered great value for the money. The bathroom was clean and there was also a small kitchen (we didn't use). Wifi was working well. It is around 1km from the main sights, a distance which is easily walkable. There are also busses and taxis are very cheap. The surrounding area of Balat residence itself is not touristic, instead it is rather traditional (and that is really nice). It might be a bit difficult for a taxi driver to find the place (as the city is so big) but normally the drivers call the residence and ask how to get there. Anyway, you can also tell the driver to drop you at Balat bus station or Fener bus station. No problem at all! Overall, we had a great time at Balat Residence and in Istanbul and can fully recommend this place!!!
Everything was perfect,excellent location, comfortable room, the staff is very friendly and professional.
nothing, everything was perfect.
Kind people, ready to help you; quiet place, nice room, good value for money; very close bus stop with direct line to Taksim. We recommend this hotel.
One detail: no hairdryer (maybe available in other rooms) Can be difficult to find on arrival by night (no big indication of hotel outside)
Very comfortable bed. We liked the aesthetic of the brick wall. Great value for money.
A bit hard to find, but to be fair our taxi-driver was rather incompetent. Would have been nice to get fresh towels at least after a couple of days.
It is very good hotel like facility and price also.the staff was so helpful and professional especially Mr Rasim at the reception.
Very good service! The staff helped us with so many things, and even offered us a present when we left. Excellent price/quality.
Location is good, but can be confusing for the first time you get there.
It is a new hotel, quite good for not high price.The rooms are clean, facilities are new, the personnel is very attentive, responsive and nice (but purely speak english).Relatively nice location: 4-5 bus stops to Eminönü (Galata bridge).
WiFi doesn't work properly: very weak signal and often shuts down. Air condition is not enough to heat a room in a winter time. It is necessary to ask personnel every day to turn on the heating battery system, otherwise it is too cold in the night.
Rasim - the owner of the residence - was always smiling and very helpful. He speaks English,so it was easy to communicate. Price-quality ratio is perfect. Hotel is new, rooms are very fresh and the same as in pictures. We felt very welcomed in this place. Rasim's mother prepares delicious Turkish coffee!:) We recommend you this hotel. No doubt, Rasim will do his best to make your stay in Istanbul very comfortable.
Sometimes we had problem with wi-fi connection. But we didn't really need it, so it was ok.
The shopkeeper is very nice and handsome, and the service is very good. Its a comfortable and excellent experience.
We felt very welcomed and they were very helpful. Plus the room was up to standards and the location very good. Would definitely return.
