Beautiful authentic hotel. I'll be staying there again on my next trip.
The location was good, Beautiful view from the top of terrace, Pleasant atmosphere. Reception was nice, helpful and cooperative. Other staffs were also always there to assist whenever needed. Friendly and good command of English. WIFI was very good. Room was clean and artistic design with nice style. Short walk to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace; Also there are loads of restaurants at day and night. Tram station was very near to access other far location like Galata Tower and Taksim square. Street was quiet and safe. Breakfast and dinner was good with really pleasant view to Blue Mosque and Marmara Sea. VALUE FOR MONEY; I will be surely back soon :-)
Simply nothing :-)
Loved the location of the hotel which is away from the exciting hustle bustle of Istanbul. It is easy to get around from the hotel as we booked a private bus from Effendi Travel with a very tristworthy and nice driver named Nade. Thanks to his help and hospitality. Breakfast was amazing with fantastic views of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia on one side and the other the Sea of Marmara. Rooms are a nice size. Bed is very comfortable and cleanliness overall is excellent. Thanks Armada and Mr. Erol for our great stay at thd hotel.
Room service menu could be improved on
Location - very close to Hagi Sophia, Topkapi etc Nice views from the Terrace restraunt Very friendly staff, prompt response to a problem we encountered Would definately recommend to others new to Istanbul, especially if limited time to see the main attractions, all of which are walkable from the hotel.
Some areas looked a little tired
For every thing! The location, the room, the view, the friendly personal, the breakfast, the dinner, and the terrace
Very nice hotel,very clean and wonderful breakfast with goods of excellent quality.Outstanding terrace view...I would defenately suggest this hotel...
Frequent shut-off of electricity
It was my second stay here. Very helpful staff, comfortable and quıet room, great locatıon, excellent breakfast with a view to the sea and hıstorical center. I will be happy to return to this hotel again.
Views from restaurant. Staff very helpful. Free wifi. comfortable rooms.
Caged birds. Immediate adjacent streets were run down and not developed yet. Limited film channels on TV. Breakfast not international. Restaurant menu limited. No free drinking water everyday.
Loved the views from the terrace where we had coffee and breakfast each morning and a glass of wine in the evening!! Loved the location of the hotel and proximity to all the important sights like Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace & more :))
Great hotel with great staff
Birds flying around restaurant at breakfast
Excellent location all key historical sites within walking distance. U can take an early morning walk along sea side plus double it up with a Bhosphoros cruise in the afternoon. Friendly staff...they even allowed me to check in early and gave me a room of my choice. Great breakfast too...the irony was the security at the hotel was more informative than the guy sitting at the hospitality desk for me
its breakfast is amazing: a long table full of Turkish style foods served in the terrace with a fantastic view of Agia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. The staff is kind and professional. Rooms are clean and full of amenities: bottle of water, olive oil natural soap. Bed quality is good as well as pillow. The location is perfect: feet distance from agia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi palace and to the tram line that goes to Bazar or to Galata. The area is fine and full of typical houses, safe. Good value for money.
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.
