Welcome to the Bonjour Hotel, the most charming boutique hotel in town. We offer our guests a romantic, rustic stay in beautiful surroundings. You will find our rooms vintage and impeccably clean while our patio garden is a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast.

Hosted in a former family house, the Bonjour Hotel is located steps from Hagia Sophia and the Marmara Sea. Guests can prepare a barbecue meal in the green courtyard.

All rooms are individually styled and furnished, and feature free Wi-Fi and minibars. Some rooms feature a balcony with garden views.

Guests can take their breakfast in the courtyard, savoring olives and cheeses, fresh fruit and Turkish coffee. If you prefer having breakfast in the privacy of your room, a room service can also be requested.

Dear Erdal,
My wife joins me to sincerely thank you for all the hospitality and help extended by you during our stay in your guest house in Istanbul from 20 to 24 May, 2011.

We are now back in Cairo and dreaming to go back to Istanbul again.

Hope you are doing fine. In case you need anything from Cairo please do not hesitate to contact me. I am also giving my mobile numbers for your ready reference.

Waiting to see you here in Cairo soon.

Hope to meet you again.
With best regards,

Dear Erdal,
I am finally satisfied that I selected the right place to stay at Istanbul with the right company. I have been remembering the care you took for us which led to a feeling that I was at a home away from home. Thanks for every help that you extended. We are back to Kolkata and settling down to get used to the regular work for survival. God knows when we would meet again. Extend my regards to your family members and Erjal in particular.

Dear Erdal,

We don't forget Istanbul and we don't forget your kindness. We remember the Bosphore, the Galata place, the Egyptian market, Taksim, and your charming garden with delicious breakfast! We enjoyed so much to speak with you...We hope your business is going well. How is Istanbul for the moment? Cold? Here, it's been snowing and the winter begins! Success with finishing your house!
You'll find by attachment few pictures...

We're waiting for your news.

Hi, just a short note to say what an enjoyable stay we had with you in Istanbul. The room was cosy, bathroom, really good, breakfasts great and the lovely courtyard, PLUS the very welcoming attitude of you and your family.
Say hi to your Sister in Law (I think that's who she was, the lovely lady who did all that cleaning, ALL THE TIME, in the kitchen.

My cousin has your details and will also be staying with you when she has a date ready for her holiday.

Thank you once again.

Dear Erdal Pirol,
Thank you very much for your Welcome. Everything was perfect.
We give your address for friends when they want to go to Istanbul.

We contact Le Routard to give news and real information about Your Hotel.

Yesterday my wife forgot into the number 6 room her special mirror on the window of the balcony's door.
Please can you send to us in good protection because it is an expensive mirror spécial for Make Up
when you have bad vision.
Tell me how you spend to send the object and we pay it by transfer to bank or other system.

Thank you very much per advance.

Best Regards

Dear Erdal
We would just like to write to say how much we enjoyed staying at Bonjour Guesthouse in Istanbul. It was in a perfect location, our room with the little balcony was very nice, the breakfasts were delicious in your pretty little garden, it was excellent value for money and everyone at Bonjour was so friendly, smiling and helpful.

Thank you for all your personal help in making our first visit to Istanbul so fantastic. We hope to come back!

Best wishes
Diana (and Dibs)

PS Maybe you have heard that we had a 'blow out' puncture on our way with our shuttle taxi to SAW airport. The driver was very professional and safely managed to pull in to the side of the motorway, but we were still 5 minutes drive away from the airport (!), so it was quite worrying that we would miss our flight. Luckily Istanbul is not only the City of Culture for 2010, but the city of Culture and KINDNESS. We felt the only solution was to try and 'hitch' a lift from another car - the very first driver to stop was fantastic, so kind, and drove us (and 2 of the Italian passengers in the taxi) directly the airport terminal - dropping us off with a smile! We arrived in time for our flight to London and we were all very grateful to him!



Hi there,
Julie and I stayed at Bonjour guesthouse on Sunday 18th and Monday 19th of April while we were stranded due to the Volcanic ash issue. We would like to thank you for you hospitality during this stressful time. You were caring and helpful which was reassuring.

We eventually made it back to London on Wednesday after a plane to Paris, taxi to Calais, ferry to Dover and bus to London. An epic journey!!

Thank you once again, and we might even see you next year around ANZAC day.

Have a great week

We were very well in your hotel and I will recommend it if friends of mine travel to Istanbul.

We loved this city and I hope to come back and discover more of Turquia before getting old.
Thank you,

Hello Erdal,
These are the last photos of your people and the Guest House. You can use them for the web site if you want to. Also, I will go to the Travelocity web site and post some comments. I have not really started to go through all of the photos yet; I will be happy to send you some photos of the area around the Guest House if you want them. It may be a few weeks before I get all of that done.

Next year we want to take a cruise of the Greek Islands. It starts in Athens and ends in Istanbul, so there is a possibility that we may spend one final night in Istanbul. If we do stay, we will get in touch with you. It will only be for one night, in September. We would like to see you again.

Thank you for helping to make our trip so enjoyable.

I stayed at a suite room of the second floor. A shower, a lavatory, television stuck to a private room, and it was very clean, and a bed was very comfortable, too.
Specifically, the owner at the hotel was very friendly and was graceful. I found the place where I could be relieved at for a Japanese in slightly uneasy Turkey.
I recommend this guest house to Japanese people and people coming from world various countries.
Breakfast is very delicious, too (From JAPAN)

You have the most best guest house.
If some of my friends come to Turkey I will tell them to come here. One day you might be in the news papers,
come to America and visit us. (From U.S.A)
