Hotel Poem is a fine example of everything that a boutique hotel should be, a home away from home. There’s a happy vibe amongst the staff and it shows in the everyday running of the hotel from front of house, house keeping and the breakfast team. Everything was just perfect!! We looked forward to breakfast every morning as we knew there would be a couple of special dishes that the chef would make along with the usual staple of cheeses, fruits, home made jams, honey with honeycomb, olives, salads oh look there’s so much more, it was a very generous spread and kept us going all day. Without hesitation I would highly recommend Hotel Poem. The hotel is in a great location in the Fatish Sultanahmet area. Walking distance to most of the major attractions that most visitors come to see such as Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque ect. There’s a lovely couple across the lane from our hotel that will do your laundry by the kg. Much more affordable than laundry service.

Gem of a hotel
What a beautiful boutique hotel, full of character and charm and right in the heart of the action with some of the major sights in Istanbul only 5 minutes walk away including Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and the palace. Even though you are so central there was zero noise in the hotel, we had a phenomenal sleep! We were fortunate enough to stay in the Ernest Hemingway room and so also had outdoor space with a beautiful view! The stars of the show are the staff, so so helpful and friendly and believe me when I say we had some weird questions but they were generous and humorous with their responses. We feel so safe and we’ll looked after I wouldn’t hesitate to go back, in fact it’s the only place we would consider staying now and you won’t regret it if you go either. Ps Can’t believe I almost forgot to mention the breakfast spread, it’s was plentiful, varied and most importantly tasty!

The hotel is conveniently located in Sultanahmet, everything is walkable. The staff goes beyond and above to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, like sandwiches to take to the airport, surprise cake for birthday, booking the tours, etc. The turkish breakfast is fantastic with the spread of different small plates and eggs cooked to your taste. The rooms are cleaned daily and meticulously, the room is packed with everything you could possibly need from iron and shoe polish to toiletries. We used the transfer from and to the airport, everything was on time and organized. Thank you, Hotel Poem!

We absolutely loved this hotel! We were met by Arif, the manager, when we arrived. He checked us in and gave us very helpful information about things to do and where to eat. He is a wealth of knowledge! The room was clean and well taken care of and provided all the amenities you need. The breakfast spread was phenomenal. We looked forward to it each day. Go ahead and book a room, you will not be disappointed!
