We were very impressed by the service we received at the White House Hotel in Istanbul. We had made an online booking and the communications back from them were prompt, clear and concise. We stayed for three nights and were eligible for a free Airport pickup. Sure enough, after getting off the long 20 + hour flight from Australia ( given a 5 hour wait in Dubai) we were pleased to see the driver with our name in the Airport arrivals area. The traffic was intense and we weaved through the city to the Hotel. We were greeted with a drink, a tasting of Turkish Delight and a lovely pin to commemorate our stay. They had taken special care to prepare our rooms, at the back of the hotel, but beside each other. They confirmed with the local operator (after hours) to pick us up for our Gallipoli day tour the following day and ensured we had a packed breakfast ready to go at 6AM. The remainder of our stay was quite calm and the Front desk staff (& Harry) were always ready with a map and directions when asked. The breakfasts served upstairs on the roof were fresh and covered a variety of tastes. Our teenage boys have adopted the White House as 'their place in Istanbul'.
Harun and his staff did a wonderful job and deserve congratulations on this oasis.
Appreciate them and they will organise a ride back to the airport, should you wish.
The Hotel is within walking distance of many of the old town sights.
