We had a great four-night stay at the Bucoleon Palace in mid-June, despite the hotel having a few kinks that still need to be worked out. First, the good: *Location: the hotel is south and slightly east of the Hippodrome and the Blue Mosque in Sultanahment. There are many hotels and restaurants nearby and it is undeniably "touristy," but it... More

Stayed here for a total of 4 nights and highly recommend this hotel. Firstly, the staff are incredibly helpful. My bags were carried to my room on arrival, all my questions (and there were many!) were answered knowledgeably and they even helped me book a fantastic hotel for my subsequent travel to Bodrum. The room itself was decent sized -... More

My wife and I stayed at Bucoleon Palace Hotel for three days in mid-April 2014. I had planned to stay at the near-by Cheers Lighthouse Hostel (which is also an excellent choice - I stayed there a few months before) but was a bit late getting around to reserving and it was already fully booked. Yavuz at Cheers suggested I... More

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
