Bucoleon Palace is a charming boutique hotel located in the old city area Sultanahmet. The rooms are very neat, nicely decorated. The breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace which possibly has one of the best views you could find in this area, facing the Marmara sea and Princes islands. Staff is always there for you trying to help you... More

If you want to stay near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, Bucoleon Palace is a great choice. It's a little off the main route, and not in the center of all the other hotels, so it's quiet without lacking nearby restaurants. The Blue Mosque is about a 5-minute walk away. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful... More

Highly recommended Hotel,... More

You're not going to have space to take huge strides in the standard rooms, or swing a cat in the shower, and the septum between the two singles joined to form a double bed is rather annoying BUT your room will be clean, adequate and comfortable for a short stay. The staff at reception are exceedingly helpful, it's quiet, the... More

Nice small hotel in the heart of the main attractions in the old town of Istanbul. Clean rooms withe necessary amenities. Very nice breakfast, home style. We could have breakfast at the terrace with its spectacular view, but the weather did not allow. This is my hotel each time i travel to Istanbul, and really recommend it.
