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. I really thank both Mohammad the manager and the owner. The stay was really nice, if I... More

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. It's very close to the major sites and easy to get to the tram for exploring further afield. The hotel had a lovely, friendly and relaxed atmosphere and... More

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

My husband and I started our honeymoon in Istanbul and we were simply delighted with our experience at The Magnaura Palace! This hotel is as charming as the pictures on their website! Perfect location in the old city of Sultanahmet and very convenient to all of the popular tourist attractions, i.e., Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, etc.... More

My wife and I enjoyed six comfortable nights in the Magnaura Palace Hotel from 11th to 17th June. The Hotel is perfectly placed not only for all the Sultanahmet attractions - but is also easy distance from the transport links to other parts of the city. Mehmet and his team (they were all so good we will not try and... More
