This hotel is a great surprise! The location is perfect! A few steps from the main Sultanhamet's monuments! The buffet breakfast on the roof with the amazing view on the Bosphore is the best way to start the day! The staff is really really kind and helpful. Shuttle service makes the transferts easier... the rooms are big and clean. I... More

The people who run this hotel are completely on the ball and define service with a smile. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The location was just great and had the famous historical sites (Blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc) at your doorstep. I was delighted I chose this hotel for a 4Night business trip - it was a 3... More

I am hesitant to write this, as the staff and owner of this hotel are tne nicest people you could hope to meet, but we were very disappointed in the room. The lighting was awful, there was no place to unpack into, the bathroom was tiny. We booked the largest room, hoping for luxury and space, but found the room... More

My daughter and I traveled to Istanbul to celebrate my birthday. After many searches for the right place to stay, we decided on the Magnaura Palace. We could not have picked a better location to stay! The staff was simply outstanding - from front desk to cleaning staff! Whatever our question or request, they handled it with efficiency and friendliness.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here during a 3 day break in Istanbul. On arriving (we arrived separately as we were arriving from different destinations) I received a warm welcome, was offered a cup of coffee and brought some Turkish delight. The owner and manager showed me the map of Istanbul and carefully pointed out key attractions, with some great... More

We took a taxi from the airport that we got ourselves. He got a little lost and when we arrived he tried charging us almost double what the hotel had told us it would cost. (The hotel sent an email informing us beforehand). Someone from the hotel ran out and helped us. He negotiated with the taxi driver and we... More

My husband and I stayed in this cosy hotel for a week. It is situated so conveniently in the quiet part of Old City, that we never used any public transportation -all the major sights of Istambul are within walking distance. Tasty breakfast is served in the terrace with impressive view of the sea. Mehmet and his team did everything... More
