Very helpful people. Nice views from my room. Good price for the services.
The hotel has character, great location, and very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was a very generous buffet, with hot course changed each day. But if you are sensitive to noise, go elsewhere. No lifts but the staff carried our bags upstairs for us.
As it is an old family home converted to a boutique hotel, there are problems with noise transferring between rooms and between floors. We heard enough of conversations through walls and floors to know which fellow guests were native English-speakers.
Location close to all main tourist attractions. Friendly service.
Size of room-very small. Very limited storage. Safe-tiny, useless. Uncomfortable bed (Extremly hard matrass). TV set is a joke, small and positioned awkwardly. Unsafe staircase. Breakfast-very limited choices and ordinary quality.
We just loved our 5 night stay at Esans Hotel. Spotlessly clean throughout. Excellent staff. Perfectly located in the beautiful old city area of Istanbul.
Such an amazing little gem tucked away on a quiet street! It's 5 minutes walking distance to 4 of the main sites, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern Chapel! The room was very clean and so comfortable! Engin was so wonderful and helpful! If I owned a hotel business I would certainly employ him!! This was a homely, comfortable and relaxing place to stay and I would highly recommend!!! Thank you Esans for making our trip to Istanbul so memorable! Noreen and Kashan
Easy to visit Hagia Sofia & Topkapi Palace & close to lots of restaurants. Friendly staff.
Everything about this hotel is just BEST Staff, Lication Warmth
Very good location! Close to main attraction. Suggestion: to make a ferry trip.
We liked everything. The location is perfect and the staff very friendly and helpful. Clean and nice. Thanks!
friendly profesional staff met all our needs. kind upgrade to room with view of Bosphorous. rooftop deck for free breakfast and use all day. small and sweet, quiet street, near everything in Sultanhmet.
The hotel location was perfect for exploring all of the sites. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they set the hotel apart from the average hotel. Our room was on the small size but perfectly adequate for our stay and had lovely views over the Bosporus.
Just below Topkapi gate, near many good restaurants, very friendly and helpful staff, good rooms, rooftop breakfast area, good price, what could be better!
Hard to find faults.
Friendly and helpful staff
Did not get wake up call on day we left.
This charming place is located in old-city area where is 3-minute close to Aya-Sophia, 2-minute close to Topkapi. but it's not loud at all. Staffs are kind and informative. they helped recommend me of shopping place at a reasonable price, as well as offering me of tea or coffee at any time. The hotel was old-fashioned but everything was clean. A toilet was newly-equipped. In the morning, I could enjoy a breakfast looking out the Sea of Marmara from terrace on the fourth floor.
It does not equip an elevator in the building, but you would not be uncomfortable when you carry up the baggage since a staff would help you.
The staff couldn't do enough to help, the breakfast was plentiful, tasty and enhanced by an amazing view out to sea. And the breakfast staff created a warm inviting atmosphere. Perfect location, inures from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc and yet so tranquil.
There wasn't really anything I didn't like - I would go back here again if I was looking for a hotel in Istanbul.
Wonderful staff Great location Nice breakfast Water available
I liked everything in Esans hotel, very polite, very clean, nice breakfast, perfect location... I cant really say anything bad about it. I also appreciate the politeness of the staff. I got also a good airport transfer.
Hosts were super-helpful and just all-round nice people. The room was somewhat small but spotless and excellent. This is the fourth hotel I've stayed at in Istanbul but by far the best.
The breakfast selection was a bit basic. The location is a minor nuisance. While it's very close to the likes of Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet, it's a bit of a hike from the nearest public transport.
Quality of service and staff. Location-it's in quiet location but also within a short walking distance from many restaurants and major tourist sites
Room, although nice, was a bit cramped for 2 adults and 2 teenage boys.
This hotel has a central location, very close to all touristic sites but on a quiet street. The rooms are very comfortable and I really want to thank all the staff who made our stay unforgettable. We travelled as a family and the staff went out of their way to respond to any request we had. The breakfast is diverse and good and is on a terracce overlooking the bosphorus which is really nice. It's a small hotel which feels like a home away from home and we really appreciated that.
Nothing, everything was perfect. I very highly recommend this hotel and will stay again at Esans with no hesitation if I return to Istanbul.
We enjoyed our stay at Esans Hotel. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The staff was great. They ba e attention to personal service and always with a warm smile. They arranged for transportation and recommended restaurants and travel routes. We will book them again when we travel to Istanbul next year. E
Breakfast was downstairs - but there is a beautiful roof terrace that could have some coffee or somethings up there as well.
This was our first trip to Istanbul. The staff were so accommodating, basically treating you like one of the family. They recommended good ares to visit and looked after all of our needs.
Esans Hotel is a perfect choice for traveler's looking for a personal, lovely small hotel with an authentic feel in Sultanahmet. It's tucked away on a quiet street and is just a short walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, parks, shops, restaurants and many historic sites. We found Esans through the internet and are so glad we did and would return. Engin and the staff were very hospitable and helpful. They immediately sent us travel information about Turkey, Istanbul and Sultanahmet when they received our reservation. They arranged our pick up from the airport and it was easy and efficient. They went out of their way to make sure our room accommodations were as requested and we had a large lovely room overlooking the sea. Their traditional Turkish breakfast each morning was delicious with so many choices, lots of fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff was extremely polite and unfailingly helpful for making reservations and anything we needed or asked about.
The hotel is located in a former historic building- the home of a perfume maker for the Sultan. This of course is part of its charm - the rooms, beds, airconditioning, bathrooms and amenities are great- the only thing to know is that if stairs are a concern - there is no elevator. It was not a problem for us.
The people were so friendly and accommodating. Very helpful and hospitable. They couldn't do enough for you. Very proud, and rightfully so of their little hotel. Good location - a bit hidden - but you felt like you were going home.
Different people recommended different restaurants or hammans - sort of feel like their recommendations are based on special "cooperation" with the restaurants/Hammans and not necessarily best value and/or guest feedback.
