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

I stayed here with 3 friends for a long weekend. We are all seasoned travellers but none of us had previously visited Istanbul. 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.

This hotel is located in the middle of all attractions in Istanbul. Although I am not a big fan of small hotels but I can say that this one is one of the best with clean rooms, nice breakfast, especially on the roof.

Brilliant location, very clean modern decorated and refurbished hotel. Great friendly management by the owners. Extremely friendly staff. Wide variety of breakfast choices on open air fourth floor terrace. Centrally located near the Blue Mosque and Ayasophia. Value for money pricing.

We had a wonderful 8 day stay at The Magnaura Palace Hotel and wish it could have been even longer. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring this beautiful city.

Stayed 3 days recently. Room was small but incredibly neat. Had a problem with the shower door wheels falling off, reported it to Arben at reception and next day it was fixed. Found some long black hairs on my bathroom floor each day which was slightly off putting. Breakfast is not great anywhere in Turkey by western standards but you... More
