This was our short stay in Istanbul, before traveling further to antalya, but enough to see bright side of this hotel. Lobby was very well cooled, so when you enter it it is like heaven. Check in was fast and staff has placed us in our room very fast and helped to organize beds for 4 of us very quickly and noticed few stains on sheets and changed them with new ones in 5 minutes. Restaurant had more then enough different food for breakfast and was very clean and well organized. After breakfast we were out for all day and night so we basicly just sleep and ate there and out and this hotel is perfect for that, because it is so close to aya sofia, kapali carsii, Suleyman mosque... We got this hotel via our travel agency so price was very good. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to wander through istanbul and have good night sleep and breakfast to move on

It was the worst experience ever. I go to Istanbul every year and I stayed in different hotels 3/4 stars and they were great specially the cleanliness. I stayed for 10 days and took 3 rooms at The Hotel Beyaz Saray and it was terrible when it comes to the hotel facilities, cleanliness and service. The bathroom was filthy and very old, the lightening was so dark and give negative vibes, no kettle or water in the rooms! Dust wast everywhere in the rooms! Bathrooms were dirty from day one to day 10!! They don’t change bed sheets or whatsoever. Rooms are so close to each other, everyone can see each other! Some of the staff members were really nice and tried to help but I gained nothing. Management did nothing even when I showed some pictures. They promised to clean, but they clean only the surface and leave the rest as if you don’t notice.. The worst experience, I don’t recommend it at all!
Non Smokers avoid

Well for 8 nights, $400 was very reasonable considering we got a free Buffett breakfast every morning. However our room opened up to a "court yard" which you will see in the pictures however what these pictures don't show you is that the courtyard has a roof. Everyone smokes in their rooms/ on their 'balconies' so your room will be full of smoke if you leave your window open. It was quite disgusting actually. We tried to use the indoor swimming pool but we were going to be charged to wear a swimming cap and if you wanted to use the pool after 7pm it was something like 10 euros. Having said that this hotel is in a great location and everything you need is only a few minutes walk away. Feel free to check out our YouTube channel where we filmed all the sights in Istanbul around this hotel. (Hannah & Gordon's World Tour).
Hotel with certificate of safe tourism
Reviewed 6 april, 2021
One of the reasons I chose this hotel because it has certificate of safe tourism. It is important for me to ensure myself that the hotel follows the covid precaution rule. The room was very clean. Great rich buffet breakfast. Very strategic location and there is small mini market / Migros Jet right beside the hotel. Lucky for this hotel because many guests from Arabian countries also prefer to stay in Beyaz Saray Hotel. The only thing was the smell from the bathroom as I guess the hotel has issue with sewage system.
Absolutely unpleasant experience
Reviewed 29 december, 2019
In all my years of travel this has got to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. From a surly and unpleasant receptionist on day one of our arrival to two filthy, run down, old and smelly excuses for hotel rooms words simply failed me. The original rooms we got smelled like a sewer, it was dark, dingy and looked worse for wear. The towels were threadbare and I was just all round horrified that a hotel that advertise themselves as four star actually didn't even scrape three star ratings. The breakfast is not nice at all and doesn't come close to international standards. After contacting my booking agent and raising a fuss we were moved to rooms on other floors (not upgraded as they had told my booking agent). This didn't phase me as I am not the kind of person who looks for freebies. I must admit that the hotel manager did try to placate the situation by providing a coffee facility, water and better towels in our rooms and the staff were marginally more attentive. The rest of our stay was a bit more decent but it is also a very noisy hotel where people argue and shout at the top of their voices at all hours of the early morning (there even appeared to be a full on domestic disagreement at about 4am on our last night that went on for almost two hours with no thought to the rest of the guests and no intervention from the hotel staff) If I ever had to come to Istanbul again would I stay here? Most certainly not, don't waste your money here, steer clear.
