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.

Staff are friendly and accommodating. We loved the location, walking distance to taksim square, many restaurants. They aim to please. They offered a new recommendation every day. There is a small souq nearby that's nice. A gem in Sultanamet !

You can choose a lot of food, it isnt the idea that I have about buffet libre for a breakfast. The... More

After a horrible experience at one of the other hotels in the neighbourhood, our travel agency changed our booking to Hotel Acra. We were greeted by friendly staff and a receptionist with great English language skills. They gave us some good tips regarding restaurants and even let us borrow an Istanbul Card for public transport. We had a standard double... More
