The room we booked was a suite room, but the room we got appeared to be small for a suite standard and for the price i paid
Location excellent for all the main historical sites.
Hotel looking tired and needs an update. We were told this is to commence this month, Jan 15.
Friendly staff Excellent location(2 mins walk from tram stop, 15 mins walk to Sultanahmet square)
Same breakfast menu each day
The location and the excellent wifi connection with good speed.
My experience had been more than poor. I have stayed in best western across the world but this has been worst ever. 1. The staff is very high handed and biased towards non whites. We could clearly feel it. 2. The breakfast spread is more than poor. The toaster doesn't work and the staff makes fun of you when you point out. The bread is stale and days old. The tables shake like hell spilling all that you eating. 2. Room very small n no views. Very poor lighting. Dated furniture.in toilet,The faucet doesn't work, the flush leaks, the toilet paper falls short n isn't replaced by the staff. The floor mat is used and unfresh. There is no pressure in the shower. The linen doesn't appear to be clean. It's yellowish. And the list is endless. Totally avoidable. There are better and cheaper hotels within walking distance.
breakfast needs improvement ，stayed for 8 nights， everyday the breakfast was exact the same
I do not recommend this hotel. I did not get the room I have booked
There was no CNN and World Cup match available on TV. The TV provided in the room was a very old one. The electrical socket outlet in the room was not working. Room rate is rather high and facilities was bad, and with no swimming pool or gym. Service was not good.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location. Within walking distance to major attractions. Public transit at doorstep.
The staff and the location are superb!
The room we booked was a suite room, but the room we got appeared to be small for a suite standard and for the price we paid.
Location, friendly staff and good breakfast
Relatively Quiet era however Walls/doors thin don't expect to sleep late woken both days by the noise from other guests on the floors and central stair well
The location was perfect. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were clean.
Part of the(young) staff was more interested in their friends/colleagues then the guests The breakfast room was not as promised on the roof terrace but downstairs, and was very small. Breakfast was not so varied and could have been more extensive.
The hotel though small is very accessible to all major sights in Istanbul. first time guests though have to walk through a small alley from the back end of the hotel to reach it coz taxis are not allowed to pass through in front of it. The hotel guest relations manager, maznah?, was also fun to talk to. Good listener. thanks.
the restaurant outside (leasing from the hotel) should have arrangement with the hotel to have food bills charged to the hotel in case the customer doesn't have much cash with him or her.
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We were told that they will daily give us bottles of complimentary water. But we got them only the first day. The room was not cleaned therefore I complained at the reception, but they just changed towels and did not say any apology. We had to sleep uncomfortable night in this dirty room. The star of "Best Western Empire Palace" is 3 or less, I believe. In addition, there was NO WIFI connection on the first day and on the second day I could use it but its speed was slow and the connection was often cut. We are not satisfied with this service and that was really a pity.
