In the center of the historic peninsula of Sultanahmet, Amiral Palace Hotel is only a 5 minute walk from Hagia Sophia. It offers guest rooms with free Wi-Fi and has a Turkish restaurant.
Score from 167 reviews Very good
The Sultanahmet area of Istanbul is the safest area to live in. I really liked the hotel's location and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Wifi was great too on the second floor. My double room for 1 occupant was comfortable but i saw single rooms on the ground level that were very tight.
It didn't matter that the hotel didn't have a lift as the stairs were not too long and there were only 3 floors. The breakfast was extremely disappointing so don't get your hopes up in the morning.
Position is amazing (1 minute by walk from Hagya Sofia and Topkapi) Staff is absolutely friendly and helpful Terrace
Rooms are a bit small Breakfast can be improved
very helful nice staff perfect location , close to everything and walking distance of sultan ehamet metro station at the same time not in the middle of the crowd, very quite and calm and peaceful breakfast is great, homemade delicious food food, hallarious view at the roof while having your breakfast
The staff went out of their way to help me. The gentleman on duty at the reception even stopped at the otogar after I checked out to see that I was on the right bus on his way to work. And the location is perfect
I liked everything!
This small hotel is perfectly located in the close proximity of Hagia Sophia and other landmarks. The staff was very nice and helpful. The design of the whole building inside is very attractive making you feel that you are in an old palace or maybe a castle. They provide the breakfast on the roof terrace where you have a beautiful view of the nearby architectural landmarks, as well as the sea and the Asian coast. The breakfast was quite decent, to my opinion.
The room is very small for 3 (it would probably be OK for two). The extra bed that was provided for my visit was too small for an adult (perhaps, they expected a child would sleep there). Again, that won't be an issue with you if you don't have a third person. The shower does not have a door, and, surprisingly, that is by design. So, we used the shower in a very limited way to avoid flooding the floor.
Megara is right next to the ancient wall that runs around Topkapi palace; the views are wonderful. Its so close to most of the 'must see' sights - they become your neighborhood while you are there. The hotel is charming, with great attention to detail in the decor and good facilities. Best of all though, were the staff - such a warm and welcoming bunch of people. I would definitely recommend staying at Megara
Old fashioned style of hotel with excellent bar/restaurant/ breakfast area with a good view. Comfortable, basic bedroom, adequate bathroom. Good breakfast.
Room a bit dark, but not really a problem.
Very good location with a lot of restaurants, the blue mosque and the aya sophia nearby. The breakfast is very good with a stunning view.
Can be a little bit noisy at night because of the restaurtants but I did not find it very disturbing.
Location (all major attractions eg. blue mosque within walking distance), gorgeous Bosphorus views, friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, excellent WiFi, great breakfast buffet (I am celiac, and plenty of gluten-free options were provided). Highly recommend as excellent value for money deal. Only comment is that bathroom was a little 'tired'- but that said, it was large, everything worked well and shower had great pressure/hot water, so no complaints really. Staff were very helpful in organising both an airport pickup, and then taxis when required. Thanks for a lovely stay, Megara Palace!
Air conditioning did not work well
The location The staff The Terrace The cost The food The quaintness! The Turkish Chardonnay.
The position of toilet - too squeezy The stairs - very dangerous and not well lit. The food was good but there was not a lot of choice for dinner. Breakfast was fine. Beds were a bit hard.
This hotel is brilliantly situated just across the road from the Topkapi Palace and near all the important sites in the Old City. It is comfortable and the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel boasts a rooftop breakfast room, with an amazing view. We loved our stay here.
great view, lovely stuff, delicious breakfast on a breathtaking terrace
Great location Helpful, friendly staff
Uncomfortable bed Weak Wifi
location friendly staff clean room beautiful view
breakfast slightly to late
I liked the plaсe. Мегара Palaсe situated near all remarkable Istanbul sights (Hagia Sophia, Yerebatan Sarnıcı and others) and in the same time it is near the tram station. So you can easy reach any notiseble place in the city. Personnel were really frendly. Thank you Saahashi, Mehmet, Jzha, and nice woman who booked our return transfer to the airport (sorry, we don't know your name) for yours care and attention. There is stunning view on the sea gulls in the clouds from terassa during breakfast. Clean room, comfortable beds, elegant orient design are in this plase. Unlike many other small cozy hotels Megara was not lost in their crowd, and is located on the corner of the historic district Sultanahmet. So you can enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient city all the time. I recommend this hotel to visit. Istanbul is lovely! P.S I advice to order a hamam in reception hotel desk. You will be taken to a Turkish bath and then take you back to the hotel. Very comfortable.
the staff are nice，excellent environment and view.
wifi sometimes is slow
The hotel is in the heart of the old town - an incredible location. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and did all they could to make our stay memorable which it certainly was.
Convenience of the location in Sultanahmet for Topkapi and restaurants. The hotel terrace where breakfast is served has a sea view and overlooks the perimeter walls of Topkapi palace. Staff were helpful. Would consider staying there again for 1or 2 nights.
Rooms rather small but assume that's reflected in the price.
The roof terrace - stunning views, I could have sat there all day! Only 10 mins walk from Sultanahmet tram stop. Also main taxi office right opposite which is handy if you're combining business and pleasure as we did. Staff are lovely and very helpful. Adjacent arts shop had some lovely items.
Rooms could do with some updating, but comfy bed and reasonably quiet a/c which is always a bonus. Bit short on storage space, would have liked a chest of drawers as we were there best part of a week.
The location is excellent
We were arriving at 8am from a very long flight so I booked the room for the night before so we could check in immediately and get settled. We arrive and they double booked our room so we had to wait for the people in it to leave and they still expected us to pay for it!! Very unethical way to operate.
The location was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful
The breakfast did not appeal to my Western expectations
