    "THANK YOU!"

    Rate:  5 Stars

    I just returned from a 5 night stay at Yesil Ev and I must say the location, the ambience, service, food and simple beauty are not to be beat. The staff were so very helpful with every request - large or small or in-between. The garden as other reviewers have said is an oasis in a bustling area - you can sit and have a meal or a drink and see the Blue Mosque from one angle and the Haggia Sofia from another - very special. I can`t wait to go back - thank you Yesil Ev!

    Room tip: If you don`t want to hear the call to prayer - although we slept so well we never heard it in th...

    "Charming. Great location"

    Rate:  5 Stars

    Yesil Ev is a lovely hotel. The guest and public rooms are charming. Breakfast outside in the courtyard is very pleasant. The hotel`s location is great in terms of access to the old city. It`s a bit too close to the minarets though and the call to prayers can be very disruptive to your sleep.

    "Very disappointing"

    Rate:  2 Stars

    Great location in walking distance to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Has a lovely garden restaurant. The hotel could be very charming if money was spent on it so it worked. The air conditioning is central and broke down during our stay which was very trying in the heat (it was inadequate anyway). The bathroom was tiny, the shower leaked badly, the curtains did not block out the light, the bed was very hard, no TV, and it was 64 stairs to our room (no lift). However we can`t fault the service as the staff were friendly, helpful and apologetic and arranged for our transfer to another hotel. We will not stay there again.

    "Most beautiful garden and best location ever"

    Rate:  5 Stars

    We were guests at YE for I week. It is warn, intimate and charming A real oasis. The gardens are magnificent for breakfast, lunch or dinner or tea in the afternoon or cocktails in the evening. It is simply the prettiest place in Istanbul. The food is wonderful and service great. Their location cannot be beat. You are right between Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque and directly across from the restored and lovely turkish baths. There are only 19 rooms Our room (#37) was darling. With window on three side. One looked directly out to the Blue Mosque and one to the gardens. The room was sweet not grand and the bathroom was adequate. We love it. We have already recommended it to several of our friends and would never go to Istanbul without staying there. It is a charmer and you are virtually in the heart of ancient Istanbul.

    "There are finer hotels, but few as authentic"

    Rate:  5 Stars

    I just returned from my 2nd stay at Yesil Ev in 3 months. During a May visit to Istanbul, I started out at The W Hotel in Nishantashi. Nothing bad to say about W. It was lovely, totally in line with any hipster W I`ve stayed with great service but I felt that I could have been at the W Union Square in NYC. I spent much of the day time exploring the Old Town (Sultanahmet) which wasn`t far but an exhausting cab ride. It was there I discovered Yesil Ev. It`s a wooden, 19th Cent Ottoman hotel with warm service and an oasis of a garden. I moved that day to the hotel and have visited since in late July. The location is unbelievable - literally in the center of Sultanahmet and a few yards from the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Haiga Sophia. The rooms were charming and clean, bathrooms were perfectly fine and I started each day with coffee next to the fountain in their flower-filled garden. It`s next to the Four Seasons so getting a cab to Beyoglu/Taxim for dinner and nightlife was easy (tip: when returning, tell the driver Four Seasons Sultanahmet & watch the meter!). Yesil Ev`s staff arranged dinners, tennis and pool at SwissHotel and overall, couldn`t have been nicer. The beds weren`t the most plush I`ve slept on, but I slept well - even thru the morning call to prayer from the neighboring Blue Mosque. Visiting Yesil Ev is like visiting my granma`s house. It might be a bit `tired`, but it exudes a warmth, genuine hospitality and a "realness". I`ll keep going back.
