Every staff person treated us as family! The owner never failed to assist us when asked or not asked. Hey, when was the last time a hotel owner gave you roses when he learned it was your birthday? It's true, he did. nWe felt like royals at the MAGNAURA PALACE.
The hotel staff did everything possible to make our stay in Istanbul was comfortable and interesting. Thank them!
Comfortable hotel, clean with a great location. The big attraction of the hotel is the friendly, accommodating, helpful staff. Particularly Dogus who was superb from the minute I walked in the door until departure.
Nothing I did not like
nothing is bad in this hotel
This was an unplanned side trip but we wanted to get an overview of Istanbul. To our delight -- we truly had a MAJESTIC stay at The Magnaura Palace. The hotel location was absolutely perfect for exploring and immersing the city life and its vibe. Absolutely close to all the famous "must-see" sites: i.e. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, The Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace. We were even blessed to have seen the "whirling dervish" dance. A million "thanks" to Mr. Mehmet -- who had helped us in experiencing a wonderful glimpse of Turkey. Definitely, we were delighted that we would be coming back.
Considering the location and services provided, this hotel represents great value. Fresh breakfast with good choice, comfortable rooms and genuine friendly service.
I really love this hotel, the staff here is very very nice! The hotel is at a very good location which is close to the blue mosque. And their service is great! We book a room with sea view and it got a fantastic view in the morning! Next time I still choose this hotel!
The staff were consistently courteous and very helpful regarding the best way to get around Istanbul as well as the sights to see.
There were no deficiencies.
Great location. Hotel staff was very helpful and flexible - they really made the extra effort to meet my needs. I will be back!

Bed sheets and pillow did not smell fresh.
Management and staff were amazing. They went put of thier way to please us
Overall it was a wonderful hotel but it would have been better if breakfast had more variety and fresh juice
The hotel is near to Sultan Ahmed masjid and near to tram The staff was very helpful spiecally Mohammed
The location is simply too good, so close to the Blue Mosque and to the center of old town, but not noisy.
I am pretty sure this is a mistake though: there are two bottles of shampoo but no shower gel. We didn't bother to ask for change but I think we did that, they can change that.
The location was great, the staff was so friendly and professional. I will surely stay again in this hotel during my next trip to Istanbul
very close to the blue mosque (3-5 minutes by walk); tasty breakfast; friendly staff.
Great location, attentive staff, delicious breakfast on the roof. Rooms are comfortable and beds were great.

Nothing Overall Most Superb
It was a very nice 3 night stay. The location is perfect and the staff were very helpful. The sea view from the roof is outstanding.
Staff was excellent and teh front desk gents were extremely helpul. They were more tahn eager to help with organising transportations, advising on restaurants and visiting sites.
very thin walls between rooms and you could easily overhear neighbours. Luckily we were in a low season and the hotel was not buzzing otherwise it cuod have been really noisy.
Location, Room amenities, View from the breakfast restaurant
The hotel is very clean and the team is very kind and helpful. I'd like to mention especially Arben, Ilyas and Hanifi which made our stay at the Magnaura really gorgeous.
Very close to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. 3 min to walk. Very nice view and very nice staff (Arben). We have had a beautiful stay in absolut great city!
Our rooms were upgraded while we were there. The staff were very helpful and the location excellent. Wifi was also fast as we could watch movies online easily.
The walls are very thin so you have very little privacy. For 3 days we had to listen to a couple fight every night. The hotel only serves breakfast which meant we hd to go out for all our other meals. Would've been fine if it didn't rain the whole week we were there.
Noisy rooms. Personal toooooo service minded. Exagerating friendly.
Very central location and very helpful receptionists.
Crammed bedroom and shop instead of hotel lobby. Booking.com description and rating gave false impression of a much grander hotel - this is in fact a good 3-star hotel and nothing much else.
