Breakfast buffet has great variety of hot and cold options and the afternoon tea and snacks are welcoming after a long day of sightseeing. The location is in the heart of SultanAhmet, quiet enough for a peaceful sleep and... More

Staff was very kind and helpful. Location is good but many adjacent hotels have better location and view. No rooftop restaurant to enjoy the view of SultanAhmet surroundings. Hotel is small,old, a bit dark but the room is clean and spacious.

We spent 7 nights recently at the Acra Hotel. The location is terrific, quiet although in the heart of the action near the Blue Mosque. The staff, especially Hassein, Yunis and Rasal were extremely helpful in Helping us navigate the city, sites, and language. They were extremely attentive, generous, and warm. The room was large and very comfortable with English... More

Friendly, helpful staff, breakfast slightly disappointing, tea and cakes in the afternoon were good. A good choice for a very central hotel for a short stay. Rooms were a good size the beds were comfortable.

We stayed here with our children a year ago but I forgot to review it. It's a wonderful hotel. Good staff. Amazing location , good breakfast. Highly recommended. We are heading back to Istanbul in a few weeks but unfortunately the hotel is fully booked. We will definitely return. Excellent hotel if you want sultanahmet as your base.
