Having enjoyed two holidays based at the Berk (in both 2014 & 2015), my husband and I are so sorry we haven't been able to repeat our good experience in 2016. It's only because we haven't travelled to Turkey at all this year. Had we done so, we'd definitely have booked the delightful Room 41 for a week or 10...

I was extremely happy and satisfied with my stay at Berk Guesthouse. The staff was exceptional and made every effort to accommodate both myself and the rest of our small group. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and view of the city and Bosphorus outstanding. Thanks for everything and would gladly stay there again.

Situated right next door to 4 Seasons hotel, one cant be better situated for access to the great sites of this amazing city. The tram line which connects both sides of the divide of the Golden Horn runs a few meters away. The hotel itself is small and friendly and offers a perfect point to set out for ones days...

I was told about this guest house by a friend's friend. He said it was just off the beaten track, but close enough to get to all the transportation, destinations, which was exactly right.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
