The location, the roof terrace with a magnificent view of the Blue Mosque and the Bosphorus. Very helpful personel.
The noise front the strret some times.
Location just a few minutes walk to all the biggies in Istanbul. Well appointed room with stunning views of the Blue Mosque from our window and an excellent meal in the roof top restaurant with wonderful views of the Bosphorus
The Armada was day one of our Turkish leg and when we tried to rebook for a 4 day stay after touring Turkey the tariff had risen by over $100 PN,we booked with a hotel closer to the action but nowhere near as well appointed but the money we saved was spent on a stunning gold bracelet and a bottle of Raki!
location is very good. very good strong wifi nice breakfast - but monotonous - same thing every day! helpful staff, ordered ice every evening and got it no problem free water every day!
a bit over priced breakfast is the same thing every day! there is a restaurant outside which can be noisy!
Loved the location and staff help. Watching the fishing boats each afternoon was relaxing after a day of sight seeing.
The location of this hotel is superb as it is within walking distance of all the major attractions in the old city. Views from the terrace restaurant are spectacular, especially at night when the Blue Mosque is floodlit. Member of staff and porter during check in were very friendly and helpful.
Day time reception staff a bit vague and unhelpful when asked for advice on local transport and directions to other parts of the city and appeared to be generally disorganised. Some restaurant staff came across as aloof and unsmiling, especially at evening meal time. Self service breakfast food items and juices not always replaced quickly when run out.
Very comfortable room, beautiful views, great location, very nice staff, delicious breakfast. It's very relaxing and comforting to be there. Really pleasant stay.
Friendly staff Good location
No rooms with a Bath No items in Bathroom-shampoo etc Late night music very near No fried egg or Bacon
The hotel is in the perfect location, just a 2 minute walk away from the blue mosque, Topkapi palace, Hagia Sopia and the Sultanahmet team stop. The breakfast on the rooftop looking out over the Bospherous is a perfect start to the day and in the evening a glass of wine in the same spot the perfect finish. It is a good standard hotel with a little bit extra due to its site and tasteful rooms. A good place for the first time visitor.
Unable to access room when arrived early.
Food , staff helpfulness , locatipn
View proximity to touristic attraction hospitality food
Air condition too cold TV did not work
Location, clean, friendly staff
Breakfast was exactly same for whole long stay. A week!
Nice location the terrace for restaurant is good I like the area is vey quit
Amazing helpful friendly staff. Lovely cosy rooms. 10mins to blue mosque and Hagia sofiya
The Hotel location could not be better. You can walk to all must see attractions. The staff was so courteous and help a lot as we were traveling with my 86 years old mother. The hospitality desk staff comes to you asking what you had in plan for the day and made suggestions to what to do and not depending on the time and day. If you like fish and get a chance take a trip to the fish market (walking distance to the hotel) you won't be disappointed, fresh fish and price more than affordable. If you do a Bosphorous boat trip do it during the day, at night it is more romantic but you don't see much. Can't wait to go back to Istanbul now that I know how to navigate in the city. Four days too short.
Taxis are horrible, dare question the quote they give you for a trip and you risk being thrown out quite rudely.
Excellent buffet breakfast with outstanding views on roof top. Huge comfortable bed.
Kept awake briefly by chairs scrapping on roof top restaurant floor.
Great city location to be able to access most of the sites Food ok not great Service v good tho and staff friendly
Room q small and no option at breakfast just typical Turkish buffet. Not great for kids who aren't very adventurous !
spotless and very clean. It has its own character, location is good
I did not like the carpet at the room , I would prefer wood floor which was available at other rooms.
breakfast; position; terrace;
Great location, lovely, clean hotel, with very friendly and helpful staffs. Breakfast was great too!
Excellent facilities and very close location to the old city.
The door staff kept asking me whether I was a guest or not, it got a bit annoying after a while.
Great breakfast and views from the roof top dining area. Generally very quiet and the character of the building is reminiscent of Ottoman style. Being very close to the Sea of Marmara gave us the option of strolling in the evening by the sea. We enjoyed seeing the ships go by from our room and the roof top dining area. Our room bed etc were very comfortable.
We had a problem with the air-conditioning in our room in that it gave us both coughs and sore eyes and throats when in the room and I came home with conjunctivitis and a throat infection. I did report this when we checked out and the staff seemed very concerned.
Close to all sightseeing attractions Great view fron terrace and very friendly staff
A little noisy from street noise
Terrace restaurant has a brilliant view of the Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia.
All power outlets are hard to use with adapters, as they just fall out of the sockets. Need to provide extension cords that lay on the ground so adapters stay in.
10 mins walk to Hagia Sophia, blue mosque, Hippodrome, Basilica cistern Topkapi palace & main tram station. Effective air cond, comparatively large rooms for Europe, large soft bed, Fabulous breakfast included and very good rooftop restaurant although a little pricey for Turkey but food was excellent.
In the early hours of Monday morning after a wedding the previous night there was the noise of moving furniture that appeared to continue for at least an hour which was quite annoying. This could easily be avoided by lifting the tables and chairs instead of dragging them.
very good location nice rich healthy breakfast
