Expert review of White House Hotel Istanbul
This is a rare small hotel in Sultanahmet that’s not a remodelled Ottoman-era house. The White House feels bright and airy to me, with its distinctive columned exterior and a blend of crisp modernity and subtle luxuries inside.
Though it’s not on a particularly appealing street, the hotel is in a safe, convenient location a short walk from all of Sultanahmet’s sights.
The hotel’s 22 rooms feel very clean and new, and are relatively spacious for the area. I like the muted-yellow wooden furniture, including big stand-alone wardrobes, and the high-backed silver-upholstered chairs. The top-floor superior rooms are good for business travellers, with their work desks and coffee tables, while the family and triple rooms work well for a small group.
The appealing lobby sets the tone with its big, high-backed bronze-hued chairs and brightly painted sky-blue dome.
The buffet breakfast served in the cheery basement salon is top-notch, but there is no restaurant or bar on-site.
The helpful, English-speaking staff can competently meet guests’ needs and requests.
A mix of business and leisure travellers; older guests and families are made to feel especially welcome.
Breakfast is included in the room rates.
