This is a nice little boutique hotel right around the corner from the Four Seasons. It's no where near as nice but no where near as expensive. And it is perfectly fine as a nice place to stay in Istanbul. Clean comfortable room (not huge) -some with a Bosphorus view. Great location near Blue Mosque, old city, etc. Staff was... More

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Magnaura Palace with my wife (12th Sept / 15th Sept ) This is without doubt the best hotel in Sultanahmet ,as you are within a couple of minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, and all the other attractions that you must see, if it's your first visit to Istanbul.

The Magnaura Palace was a fabulous find. From the moment I walked in the door, the staff at Magnaura Palace were very helpful, and I felt they really wanted to help me make the most of my trip.

Delightful hotel. Prearranged transportation was waiting inside the airport. English speaking staff was always pleasant and helpful. We were upgraded to a very nice suite that made our stay even more enjoyable. The breakfast had a wide variety to choose from and made a great start to our day. The hotels guide was exceptional. Location can't be beat. Overall a... More

Made our trip to Istanbul perfect. Great hotel with great staff who made us feel welcomed and confortable. Looking forward to check-in again. The rooms have lovely views and the rooftop terrace is wonderful with that Bosphorus view.

We started off a 2 week visit to Istanbul with 2 night stay at the Magnaura Palace, before moving to a small apartment. The hotel was just charming, Location is excellent. They offered a pick up from the airport for a reasonable flat fee which was terrific and eliminated all sorts of stress after a long flight. Dogus, the concierge... More

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, took the time to show us places on maps, talk to us about transport options, showed us local restaurants on the internet etc. The hotel is in a fantastic location,...

The Magnaura Palace hotel is simply the best. I can only reiterate what the other reviewers have mentioned. Everything from the staff to the location to the room is exceptional. It is a charming boutique hotel and the only problem is it's quite hard to leave the rooftop terrace (where a delicious breakfast is served every morning). The views there... More

We had 4 days at the Magnaura Palace and it was wonderful. The room was neat and clean and we had a view of the water. The rooftop café provides wonderful views. This is a fantastic location. Staff great - especially Dogus.
