Tea making facilities in room Good breakfast - interesting selection Relaxing pool Helpful staff
Request a room at the rear of hotel & not too close to lifts as can be noisy!
There was nothing we could find fault with and we had a great time
A very comfortable hotel with extremely helpful staff
I loved the friendliness of the staff, the little extra touches like rose petals and the fresh towels each day in a special design, the wonderful restaurant and view, the variety in breakfast. The general quaintness appealed to us.
I did not like having to leave!
Staff very friendly and helpful - went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The location was perfect, handy to all major sites. Breakfast was very good. The whole hotel was immaculately clean and we felt we were welcome from the outset.
Nothing at all.
Every thing. The staff were highly professional in dealing with a hard case I faced, I lost my credit card and they helped me in calling the bank in UAE and stop the card. I believe dealing with people is the most important thing. Thanks to Miss Ozlem, Mr. Ali and Mr. Gehan. The hotel is less than 5 minutes walking to Gulhane Tram station. Roof is amazing Bed is very comfortable.
The staff was very friendly and accomodating. They helped us booked tours and were able to recommend some local restaurants. The hotel was along the tram line so it was always easy to return home. The hotel was conveniently located near all major attractions. The breakfast was outstanding!!
The Orient Express hotel team were first class in assisting us and our large group with a broad range of tourist requests. Everything from boats, buses, local attractions, postage were able to be sorted with ease and friendly efficiency.
Staff and location.
Must ask for a room with a large window - ours was too small.
Our stay was a mixed experience. The location is really close to many sights in the Old section of town. The staff were very friendly. The terrace on top had a great view and the staff there were really nice. The problem was that when we checked in, we were given a small single room instead of the double room we reserved on booking.com (picture was totally different than what was online). The window in the room was broken, and so the first two nights, we didn't get much sleep because we could hear the tram outside. The tram did stop at some point, but it was really unpleasant being in a smaller room with a broken window. We pointed out that the room was a single and the window was broken, and were given a different room for the last 4 nights and a discount of 10%, but, really, we would have preferred to have avoided that first room in the first place.
Of the three hotels we stayed at in Turkey (Kerem, Sultan Cave Suites), this was was the most expensive and smallest room. The first two nights were flat out a bad experience. If you can avoid the room next to the elevators (two elevators, making two rooms on the floor tiny), it will probably be a better experience. Wish the hotel had reserved the original room we booked on booking.com, especially since we were staying for 6 days. While we stayed we ran into another family that was moving from room to room, and possibly another couple as well. Room 402 was just like the pictures, 301 was horrible.
Location fabulous, staff professional and friendly, breakfast delicious, swimming pool hits the spot, a perpetual sweet scent of lavender and rose.
Nothing. Just wished we could have stayed longer.
close to tourist attractions and transport, staff, rooftop restaurant
hard bed, thin walls and slamming doors made the hotel noisy at times.
Very close to all the sights staff very friendly and helpful would not hesitate to recommend to others
Hard to pick something that was not to our liking
All was good.Staff at reception was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was great. Special thanks to cleaning staff and nicely made beds.
Everything was good.
I stayed here last week with my wife and two sons (aged 4 and 1). This really is a great hotel in a great location. Gulhane and Sikerci Tram stations are 3 minutes walking distance from the hotel. The Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and Basilica Cistern are all within walking distance. Also on the the same road as the hotel are plenty of shops and restaurants. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helful. They are always willing and able to give advice on sightseeing, travel, etc. The room is clean and well laid out. My sons also enjoyed the spending time in the indoor pool that the hotel has.
Everything especially the rooftop restaurant, great food and wonderful food.
Smoking allowed during meals, very unpleasant, only part of Turkey and the restaurant I disliked.
Kindness and professionality of the staff Location
Very poor breakfast quality Very little and noisy rooms, specially those on the street side Poor quality and features in the bathroom Smoke filtering in the room coming from neighbourg romos, even if the hotel is theoretically non smoke
Location, cleanliness, staff, bed, Imbat restaurant on top floor, and value for money etc. This hotel has everything guests like. We stayed with fully satisfaction. If you want to stay in Sultanahmet district, this hotel is just right answer.
I just stayed one night, so I was regretful not to stay more nights. I should have stayed in this hotel during my Istanbul trip.
The staff. The receptionists were great, the breakfast room staff were also very good. Location is brilliant. A few steps away from most attractions and tram stops. Really really good restaurant. It's as good as you hear. Just don't order too much as I did. I left most of my main course untouched because I over indulged in appetizers. Very good breakfast with all the expected dishes.
Well, the furniture is very basic. There's no chair in the room, only an ottoman. To get any back support, you have to sit on the bed. AC was a bit noisy. Rooms are really small, but sufficient.
location, front desk guys+++, breakfast. silence. nice small swimming pool and shower.
small rooms, and the guys at breakfast doesn t help... nice breakfast but 7 days 95% same food.
Everything we hoped for in a hotel was experienced at the Oriental Express, in particular the staff were so helpful in helping us organize our tours and the best way to see Istanbul. Loved it all.
The location was excellent, within walking distance of The Blue Mosque, The Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palce, the Bosphorus and all the main attractions The hotel offered great value with a substantial breakfast and a clean comfortable room. The pool was very refreshing and quiet after a morning of sightseeing The staff were really friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough to assist us. We had dinner in the Imbat terrace restaurant on our final evening and the food, wine and atmosphere were truly memorable.
Local building noise was intrusive, on the terrace, but it wouldn't deter us from recommending this hotel, as Istanbul appears to be experiencing a building boom!
The Restaurant upstairs was nice, staff were great. Great Location-within walking distance to all major attractions
The hotel was centrally located which made it convenient for sightseeing. The staff were very helpful and made you welcome. We were a group of Four and all our accommodation requirements were met. We would recommend this hotel.
Really appreciated the opening windows and fresh air, the double glazing and air conditioning. The staff were very helpful and provided excellent orientation information on arrival. An excellent restaurant on the top floor provided great views of the Bosphorus and great cuisine. Best of all The Orient Express Hotel is on the tram line and just around the corner from Topkapi Palace, Hagia Eirene, Gulhane Park, the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of The History of Islamic Science.
