I liked everything.
We stayed recently (10-14 August 2014): -location: only 10 minutes walking to Sultanahmet area where you can take the metro/bus to all locations; -the Marmara sea view; -clean, good breakfast, helpful staff; -room was small but very clean, excellent air conditioning and with everything a traveler needed.
-very small room, but I think that is normal in Istanbul; -very small parking lot behind the hotel, 3, 4 cars maximum.
Good staff, good wifi, good breakfast
Excellent Hotel. The position was perfect and in easy and enjoyable walking distant to the Blue Mosque Topkapi Palace and wonderful interesting shops. The Citadel Hotel was a fabulous place to stay. Very good breakfast overlooking the water. Wouldn't hesitate to reccomend a stay there. Suggest ask for their largest room available.
Rooms are small but the lovely Hotel makes up for it!
I have been to these hotel many times in the past. I believe that it is one of the most convenient for those they want to visit original part of Istanbul and its monuments whereas at the same time they wish nice view to sea and flexibility as infront there is an avenue leading to city's center or to the airport. The personel is friendly and very much helpful.

WAY OF LIFE OF LOCALS
Naviditz, the at front desk, went out of his way to be helpful to English only speaking tourists. It was wonderful to be so close to the main sites but feel so relaxed looking at the Sea of Marmara.
Room was small but very clean, excellent air conditioning and with everything a traveler needed. There were a few fruit flies by the breakfast buffet which could easily be avoided with a fan.
We stayed recently (July 2014) at this nice hotel for 5 days! I highly recommend this and I like: - The Marmara sea view. - Location: only 10 minutes walking to sultanahmet area where you can take the metro/bus to all locations. - A great, helpful and amazing staff! - The breakfast is great. - Cleanliness - We had a balcony with sea view which was great (not all rooms has this)
- The traffic in the road in front of the hotel. - Air conditioning was a bit noisy
Location, facilities and the staff
very kind staff
poor view from ground floor rooms (shave the bushes!)
As last time the staff were very accommodating cheerful and helpful the proximaty to all the major sights the tranquility of the Marmara sea
Very helpful and friendly staff, excellent wifi and great location near Old City favourites such as the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Expect to pay about 50 Turkish Lira from the Airport (15mins no traffic and 30mins in traffic).
The bed is quite hard and the shower is small but not a deal breaker.
customer service was excellent wait staff was very friendly and courteous
i wish all rooms had balconies
very good hotel,frindly staff,exellent location
The location is very good
The pricec more than deserve for the room
nice location on the front and easy walking distance.
Location is excellent, staff is very keen to please. Breakfast is good, free shuttle was provided from Ataturk airport.
Room kind of small, but this is normal in Istanbul.
The brilliant location matched by the quaint interiors and excellent staff service.
Hard to say! Maybe the room sizes were a little small
Lovely hotel in great location. Had lunch in the restaurant. The chicken fajitas were excellent! Handy for historic centre - a few minutes from the back door of the hotel (uphill!). Good location for getting to Istanbul Ataturk airport (around 50 lira) We had a very early flight and could not make breakfast so the staff prepared us a packed lunch. Highly recommend
