Stayed here for 4 nights in Jan as a couple and a 5yr old. We pre arranged the airport transfer as we read they were a lot of taxi scams around. We did not want to risk it on our first trip here. Was a bit disappointed that hotel charge 30 Euro (80 Turkish Lira) as on the way back... 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...

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

excellent location, cosy and relaxing hotel, away form the main tourists stream. We used superior family and standard family room- both were quiet and very nicely decorated- not in the heavy ottoman style you see in every Istanbul's holet website. Comfy beds, pillows and very pleasant room temperature (central heating + airconditioning). Applause to the very friendly staff, who did... More

Its allways a pleasure to be in Istanbul, since its my favorite city ever, and allways a pleasure to discover new places to stay. Acra is just one of these hotels you either feel like home, while at the same time you experience this eastern type of mood. I simply love it and will back in 5 months time ...
