The Istanbul Pension is wonderful. The family that owns it was truly welcoming and helpful, not to mention they serve a fantastic turkish breakfast. It's a beautiful building within walking distance of the water, the rooms are clean and well decorated, and there's a garden in back where you can eat and read. I will definitely be returning.
The Istanbul Pension is the perfect place to stay in Ayvalik, which is itself a brilliant place to visit in Turkey. A really cute seaside town with barely any non-Turkish tourists, with lovely cobbled back streets, cafes and waterfront. We stayed in one of the garden rooms at the Pension, which was small but nice with an en suite bathroom (wet room). The breakfast in the garden was lovely, as was the owner, who was also very helpful. Very nice place to stay - highly recommend.
Great hostel, very nice atmosphere in the lovely garden and located in the beautiful old part of the town.
