If you are looking for a good hotel, not too expensive and located in the terrific Sultanahmet area, do not search anymore because the Acra Hotel is exactly what you need! The location is superb, nearby many restaurants and bars and shops and monuments and... what else do you need? The room, although a bit noisy especially because our "neighbors"... More

Stayed at Acra hotel for a few nights in January/February. Staff was great, hotel was great and had great recommendations, and the location couldn't be better! Many shops and restaurants around. Walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar and easy to find the tram to the rest of the city. Strongly Recommended

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at the Acra hotel during our (too..) short stay in Istanbul. It was just wonderful. The location is ideal: quiet yet walking distance from all major sights. The hotel is beautifully decorated, our room was cozy and nice, breakfast was very good, and above all the staff was very friendly and very... More

We stayed at Acra for 9 nights during the December-January period and we had the greatest time. Location was perfect - had many restaurants and shops nearby. Also situated very close to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace and the tram. Rooms were also comfortable. The staff at this hotel are the friendliest and so helpful! Everyone began to...

We stayed at the Acra Hotel for a week, and loved the location (walking distance to everything), the rooms were a great size, the beds were comfy, and the staff were SUPER helpful. Every afternoon there is free coffee & tea and cake in the lobby (a different cake each day, and it is delicious), with very comfy lounges, a... More

I stayed at the Acra for six nights in December. All the staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and welcoming. Every morning there was an amazing breakfast buffet. The room was spotless and warm and cosy. It is the perfect location for exploring the sights. There were details like the TVs being set at a certain level so guests did not... More

This was our second time staying at Acra Hotel, and it was once again super. Our stay last year at Acra in Istanbul was great, so this year we decided not to look further and book this hotel again, and we got a very warm welcome back. It’s only a few minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi... More

My friend and I stayed at Acra hotel for 5 nights in late November 2014. We absolutely loved the place. Great location, yet very quiet at night. The room is clean, and the bed is comfortable. Most of all, the staff at the reception are so helpful, friendly, and professional. Especially Serkan and Hasan, they go out of their way... More
