We came this hotel because our trip agency recommended this hotel but I dont recommended anyone to come here As many people comment in tripadvisor, the breakfast is really poor, the quality of the pastries and fruits are bad. 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

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
