    Hotel location is very strategic -- on a quieter road but within minutes walking to the major sites of the old city. Engin Coskun and others are very nice and helpful. The room is tastefully decorated. Breakfast selection is interesting.

    There are no stairs and our room was on the 3rd-top floor. We are young and healthy so that is ok, but make sure you are comfortable with this. I do wish there is railing I could hold on to though. The roof top can be better furnished with chairs and tables with umbrellas.

    The hotel location is very close to the popular tourist spots and within walking distance. Breakfast was excellent and probably the best during our two weeks stay in Turkey. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful in providing information as well as assisting day tours. Highly recommended!

    Fabulous

    The staff was wonderful! Super friendly and helpful. There were 3 guys working throughout our stay there...thank you for making our stay wonderful! I had forgotten my camera battery charger and one of them provided one for me the next day! The roof terrace had a view of the sea and of Hagia Sofia on the other side. The room itself (standard) was small but we were only there to sleep so it didn't matter. It was tastefully decorated. Location couldn't be beat...walking distance to everything in the Sultanahmet area.

    If your room is on the 3rd floor (like ours was), be prepared to walk over a winding staircase. Not a huge problem though for us since we're still capable. But maybe hard for older people esp. after a long day of walking around. The breakfast tray has to be carried from the ground floor to the terrace (4th floor), if you want a view while eating. This was a bit inconvenient.

    What I liked best about the hotel was definitely Engin, the desk manager who made our stay in Istanbul wonderful. He bends over backwards to be helpful and kind, and is extremely hospitable! The hotel is very well located, we had a smallish room, but with a view of the Bosphorus, and there was a lovely rooftop terrace , which we enjoyed while eating breakfast every morning. The hotel is clean and quiet, and I would highly recommend it for visiting the old city of Istanbul.

    The room was a little small, and not much closet room for hanging clothes.I know there were other larger rooms, but we wanted the room with the view, so it was a little smaller.

    Excellent (helpful) staff and location of hotel. The airport-hotel pickup service was efficient and welcome after our long flight. Cengiz & staff at Esans gave unbiased advice about local shopping, ferry trips and major sites of interest. Breakfast was always a healthy and was a combination of Turkish & traditional foods. The freshly squeezed orange juice was delicious! We spent 8 days in istanbul and would return to the Esans again.

    Some new building next to the Esans create some noise during the day but it is not a problem because you are usually sightseeing and not affected.

    The staff were absolutely fantastic. Very helpful with any questions, attentive and always around. I was surprised at what we were paying, because the interior and exterior design, added to the service and location of the hotel makes it seem like we should be paying a lot more. It was right next to everything we wanted to see and we had no problems whatsoever. Especially love the vintage-styled rooms.

    The fact that we couldn't stay longer!

    Very friendly staff worked hard to make my vacation a success. Hotel's location is very convenient to most major tourist sights, public transportation, and restaurants.

    Not a problem for me, but light sleepers may have difficulty as sound proofing between rooms is poor and loud neighbors will be obvious

    Our room was nicely furnished, the staff is very friendly, excellent location.

    No tea/coffee facilities in the room, noise from building work next to the Hotel, no sound proof room, we could hear the hoover going next room and upstairs.

    This was the second time we stayed here over a 2 week period, again it was fantastic service and another enjoyable stay. The staff were as usual, more than helpful and very pro-active in how they could assist our travels in this stay. Great breakfast, clean and tidy rooms and again an excellent location to the big sights in Sulthanamet.

    The Esans is a charming boutique hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet. In the 19 century the building housed a manufacturer of fragrances (Esans means "essence") and now the rooms, completely renovated, are dedicated to different types of perfumes. We stayed in the "Dervish room", a superior double room, very spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast is always varied and plentiful, and the other thing that we particularly enjoyed, despite being in December, is the roof terrace from which you can see the Bosphorus, the walls of Hagia Sophia and Topkapi. The location is perfect not only for visiting Sultanahmet but also to have dinner: the Esans is near Akbiyik Caddesi, a street where there are many excellent restaurants. The staff is always kind: never stop to thank Engin and the other guys for all the attentions we were given. You can arrange a convenient direct transfer from airport to hotel. Absolutely recommended.

    Fantastic staff made the stay memorable and comfortable. Especially Mustapha who asked us politely every morning if we would like fresh orange or pomegranate juice before squeezing it fresh for us. Fantastic little hotel that really feels homely.

    The hotel is really lovely located in very center of Istanbul Old Town Sultanahmet city. Very easy and handy walking to topkarpi place and saint sophia dorm and mosque blue. The room was lovely decorated. The breakfast had many varieties and fresh orange juice. All was very interesting and delicious. What we like most is also staff. They are very attentive and changing their way to help you utmost. We had nice chats about our different cultures and nice differences about nations. They provide us a nice shuttle service from Hotel to Airport with very cheap price. Also very interesting they have free calling service to Europe from Hotel lobby with a special phone. I had to call my mum. It was right for me. I plan to visit Istanbul again in Feb and stay in this lovely hotel again.
