We very much enjoyed our stay at Nowy Efendi Hotel. The staff was extremely welcoming and made sure we had a pleasant stay. They were especially helpful in arranging transportation to and from the airport. We were pleased with the room, which was simple but clean and had everything we needed. A real highlight was the upstairs restaurant, where we had breakfast-- spectacular views of the Hagia Sofia and surrounding area! From the viewing terrace another level up it was possible to see the Blue Mosque as well and much of the city. Overall an excellent stay!

Stayed here for 5 nights with 3 friends and would definitely stay again if I went back to Istanbul. The property is in an amazing location, literally a 3-4 min walk from the main tourist areas. The hotel is clean and the staff are brilliant, Burcu and Dindar looked after us very well! The breakfast is decent but nothing special. We had 2 twin rooms and both were decent size. The view from the terrace is absolutely beautiful. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

We are a family of 3. Had booked the double connecting rooms with attached bathrooms for 7 days. Love the staff here, they were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Recommends us tours and places to eat. Breakfast was ok. Credits to front staff Umut, Dindar, Burcu,Anil, Mustafa and Asiye from housekeeping which we didn’t get to meet but kept our rooms clean and tidy. The ladies in the kitchen and the manager as well. We were given the IstanbulKart upon arrival and returned it when we leave with some leftover credits. This is paid it forward. Love the people, love the country.
