Good staff and excellent service by the hotel. Really had great time at the kupeli palace. Specially their service is damn good. Staff is even available at 1 in the night .And hotel is very close to blue mosque and grand bazaar. And walking distance to the tram.

We stayed at this hotel as a family of 3 and were given a triple room which was very small and not enough room for 2 people let alone 3! There was no bath just a small shower which was a squeeze getting in and out of. The security at this hotel is bad as one evening the person staying... More

The only positive thing about this hotel is the location- situated 10 minutes walking from Blue Mosque. Rooms are old, small,no place to put your staff in bathroom, very bad room view, no elevator, not so clean, old furniture. In the restaurant there are like 10 cats... it was shocking to see them inside as the food was prepared for... More

We stayed in the hotel whilst on holiday. The room wasn't massive but big enough and what most important very clean. Staff were friendly and breakfast buffet had plenty of options from the traditional 'Turkish breakfast'. The location was very good, just a short walk from all the attractions.

Took a taxi from the pier for 20 Turkish Lira. The hotel is in the middle of a residential block, just down from a very nice park. The lobby is large and clean, the clerk friendly, and check in quick. A porter (cook/waiter) took our bags to the room, down the stairs, through the restaurant, (breakfast area), and courtyard and...

This hotel does have an amazing location. It's really close to a lot of the places you'd want to visit. However the room we stayed in was NOT like the photos. It had a bed in it and an ensuite. But there was literally no room for anything else. We were very disappointed. The wardrobe door couldn't fully open as... More

Tucked away in quite residential street split with an annexe. Don't sleep in the rear of the hotel as they start hosing down the backyard at practically first light in the early morning. Friendly and obliging staff
