Be prepared for a long check-in process...it's not a bad thing, but if you arrive exhausted and just want to get to your room, that's not going to happen. The reason for that is the staff greet and treat you like you are royalty. You will be directed to take a seat in the lobby, receive a temperature check for COVID safety protocol, and be given a delicious drink and some Turkish delight. During this time the owner (in our case) will tell you what to expect during your stay. The rooms are clean and very quiet. The lighting outside in the hall is activated by motion, so when you open your room door, expect the hall to be dark until you step into it. There was a lovely handwritten note by the owner in the room and the room was decorated the first night with faux rose petals and candles, which was a nice touch. The location of the hotel was just perfect, as we were able to easily walk to all of the top sites. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and one of the most historic hamams in Istanbul is a mere 3-minute walk away. The crown jewel of this hotel has to be the service level. The staff is incredible and goes over and above to ensure your stay is memorable. They will arrange onsite COVID testing, recommend excellent restaurants, and arrange airport transfers if you need them. The rooftop terrace is a nice place to have breakfast or simply enjoy the view. The only disappointment for me during the stay was the breakfast. Other than that, the hotel provided us with a very nice stay.

Very clean hotel and very friendly team of Mr. Harun and all the support staff . Anything needed was done immediately . We booked a family room with a 1 year old baby. The room was nicely decorated and cleaned on a daily basis . The hotel team puts extra effort to surprise you from start to finish. The recommendations of food , Hamam from the team were perfect. Overall a memorable experience . Highly recommend this property

It was a unique experience that you can not encounter anywhere else in the world. Considering the excellent location in the center of Istanbul (2 minutes walk to the Haghia Sophia and Blue Mosque, as well as the tram stop at 100 meters) it is the best place that you can be. We have pleasantly found an excellent quality / price ratio. The standard room was very comfortable, the bathroom was big enough with shower and also a lovely Windows looking towards the street. Excellent breakfast served in an elegant setting on the rooftop. Very thorough cleaning and hygiene. Polite and efficient staff with special mention for the manager Harun and his colleagues very kind and available for every request. Thank you for making our stay in the most beautiful city in the world very pleasant. We will definitely be back.

One of the best ever hotels I’ve been. Top quality, the employees are just absolutely great, always willing to make your stay unforgettable. Amazin Roof-Top and high quality of services. The breakfast was delicious, and the view from the rooftop was incredible. There is an amazing view of Hagia Sophia from the rooftop. By far the best boutique hotel in the world. My most sincere congratulations to all the team. Unbeatable!!!

From the time you make your reservation until the time that you leave the White House Hote l of Harun CADIRCI your entire experience is absolutely superb. Mr. Cadirci and his staff treat you like royalty from the time you step through the front door and for your entire stay. The hotel is in a great location, very close to all of the amazing sites and 3 very good restaurants (Deraliye, Galeyan, and Deraliye Terrace - with amazing rooftop views) are all less than 50 yards from the hotel
