  • 8.0.Very Good

    A clean, quiet place

    Extremely accommodating staff upgraded me to a larger room at no extra cost. Quiet street, which is nice. Walking distance to a bunch of sites/cafes. No breakfast, so you must fend for yourself, but options abound nearby. Lobby a little gloomy, lightened by a friendly house cat.

    Great location, nice art, nice room

    We had a very nice welcome and a good stay. Room was small but well set out. Only thing to consider is that there is only a frosted glass door between you and the toilet so there is not much privacy!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    LOVED this hotel, I stayed there 3 times Oct/Nov 2020. Great location, minutes from the Galat Tower, the hotel sits at the end of a cul de sac it is so peaceful with no traffic noise to deal with. The rooms are beautiful, tastefully decorated with beds that I could have laid in all day. The bathroom is enclosed by glass so the room does not feel claustrophobic. The manager, Zahnick, ( sorry I might have misspelled her name) was so incredibly helpful. She upgraded me to a bigger room on my 2nd & 3rd stay there. She offered the use of the kitchen as it was not in service due to Covid, she was also so concerned about my well being while I was in Istanbul, it was so nice to feel the charm of a boutique hotel manager after years of staying in a big hotel chain. This hotel will alway be my "go to" place to stay when I am in Istanbul. To the staff at The Bankerhan Hotel, thank you so very much for everything.

    I stayed in two different rooms. The second one was very small. It was kind of ok for me but as it was double room, it would be definitely too small for two. Overall, the hotel has great location, it's clean and staff is very helpful.

    We loved this hotel! Clean and the location was perfect!!! Staff was friendly and helpful. If we come back to Istanbul we will stay here again without question. Another review stated that Taxi’s won’t come to this hotel. I will say that the location is a bother for drivers however we did witness Taxi’s coming there. One did ask us to come down to the street below so not a big deal. Fat Taxi picked us up at the door for our ride to the airport.

    I have already written a review for this wonderful hotel here on Orbitz, ( I stayed here 3 times over 2 months), so please look for that under the review section, needless to say I am a huge fan of this hotel and cannot recommend it enough

    Cozy nice spot

    Room was comfortable and bathroom was really modern and clean, reason i didn't give a full 5 stars was because the location doesn't allow easy access for taxis so you'll have to walk over to the next street to hop on, ok if you are travelling light but a problem if you have large luggage.
